Blog 41: Daycations in a Post Pandemic World- Our Top Picks
Hotels are coming with innovative alternatives to the traditional 2 days, 3 nights packages to fight the slump the pandemic has brought about. In the latter half of 2020, we saw staycations and workcations picking up and Hotel it Out! brought to you the best Work Hotels. This time around, daycations are the fad and obviously, we've jumped on.
While some people book daycations as a treat to enjoy a hotel's facilities for a fraction of the price, for others, it's simply a practical option when travelling; and this will make daycations a high revenue generating model even in the post-pandemic world. It's all about making 5 star luxury affordable- even if it's just for a day! No more are these packages one-size-fits-all and hotels have gone the extra mile to cater to all types of guests. Read on to find out which daycation will suit you best.
1- Looks like daycations were born in Dubai with almost all the big hotels and resorts offering packages in the Middle East. The most entertaining of the lot has to be InterContinental Dubai Festival City's partnership with Toys 'R' Us to provide a daycation cum playcation deal for families in need of a baby's day out. Handpicked family board games, toys, educational products and surprises for the toddlers are delivered to the suite along with the chef's special meals. Gift your kids the bond of love and time with this playcation.
2- The experts at Anaya Soul Retreat, Singapore, masters at crafting one-of-a-kind, holistic retreat experiences, have done the heavy lifting as they whisk you away for a few hours to recharge the mind, body, and soul, on a yacht! Not in a hotel, in a yacht. The resort focuses on wellness and has curated four different 'Magicks' ranging from couples packages, family trips to kitchen and nature starter packs for your wellbeing.

One of it's kind in the country, The Enclave looks like the perfect spot for an all girls-daycation!
4- Timber Ridge Lodge and Waterpark, Lake Geneva is all set to welcome guests with its longer-than-a-day, daycation package providing full-day access to the waterpark and a 3 pm to 11 pm upgrade to the Timber Ridge suite.
