6 luxurious no-kids retreats that heal parent burnout
Take a break from your day-to-day routines and relive the good ol’ days of two.
Parenting is a emotionally fulfilling yet strenuous task requiring you put as much time on the clock as you can in your family. It requires a lot of sacrifices and important decisions to be made to make sure you give what is best for your child’s growth. In this vein, parents are especially the most susceptible to stress triggers in life since they can never check out of their roles. Such is why it’s important that given the chance, they should take time off and relax undisturbed, whenever they can. The following 6 destinations handpicked by Fayyaz Travels, in both North and South America are definitely the best, most remote places in which parents can unwind and take a break. You know it’s time to call your nanny!
IN THE USA
1. Dreamcatcher Bed & Breakfast in Idaho
The first rule of visiting the Dreamcatcher Bed & Breakfast at Teton Valley, Idaho, is that they do not admit guests aged 18 and below. This means that you are not allowed to take your kid with you. So you guessed it: this destination is perfect for parents who have the luxury of help to care for their newborn while they are away. Here, you can expect to wake up to the view of the famous Rocky Mountains and enjoy their delicious gourmet breakfast as you unwind from the rigors of parenting. This childfree vacation will make you appreciate solace whenever you get the chance. The outdoor activities at Teton Valley run all year round, which means that couples will always have something to do together whenever they check in. Outdoor activities include hiking, cycling, golfing during dry seasons, while skiing and snowboarding are available during winter. Teton Valley is also well known for its fly fishing and whitewater river rafting, so be sure to dip your toes in the water!
2. Ventana Campground in California
The Ventana Campground in Big Sur redefines glamping for couples and is one of the best childfree resorts in California. You will enjoy a lot of the adult privilege involving poolside bars, a fitness clubhouse with yoga studios and full-service spas. What’s great is that the Campground strictly enforces an adult-only policy, which means that there would never be spring breakers and frat-like parties spotted on their pine tree-lined site.
3. Antebellum Inn in Georgia
Speaking of “we time,” there’s a place in Milledgeville, Georgia that has just about that. The Antebellum In is a Bed & Breakfast that goes way back. It was built in 1890 as a house for a judge and his family. There aren’t much to do in the inn itself, but there are a lot of things to do around the area that people below 17 years old would not appreciate like cultural heritage trips. Georgia’s Old Capital Museum and the Old Governor’s Mansion are some of the most visited places in Milledgeville.
4. Hotel Wailea in Hawaii
New couples who wish to go a little bit further but stay under United States jurisdiction might want to consider Wailea, Hawaii. Hotel Wailea is one of the only childfree hotels in Wailea and Maui. The hotel has a strict age restriction of 15 and below, which means a newbie parent must plan this trip without their firstborn. Activities such as mixology courses, aerial silk and yoga classes, as well as canoe trips are some of the interesting things to do in Hotel Wailea. Plus, the hotel offers an access to a members-only section of the beach, which means you will likely be all adults in that area.
