From painting together in playgroups, being tearaway teens, connecting over common interests in college or finding solace in an office bestie, female friendship is a defining component of our lives.
Inspiration, comfort and humour are the cornerstones of the company of our closest female friends, but as life continues, sometimes we realise we are not making as much time for the women in our lives that we met outside the context of family ties.
A girlie mini break to a hotel for Galentine’s Day and beyond is the perfect way to celebrate and strengthen those bonds, no matter how we initially made them.
There is no better feeling than reconnecting with friends for a catch up, no matter how much time has gone by, to remember why we love our friends so much in the first place.
Galentine’s Day, which falls on February 13th, is a day dedicated to celebrating the love among friends, and while Valentines Day can be a wonderful celebration of romantic love, Galentines is all about our best pals.
Booking a retreat to a hotel adds an extra touch of luxury and relaxation to the occasion, as you can get away from the distractions of everyday life and really focus on the people around you – and it doesn’t hurt to gather them around you in some incredible surroundings!
