There’s a lot to celebrate; you’re getting married to the man of your dreams and are lucky enough to have the best girlfriends a woman could ask for by your side. What better way to mark the occasion than a luxury hen party in a gorgeous destination?!
Prague stands above other European cities as being the classy hen’s destination of choice. You and your besties could be cycling around the picturesque old town before sampling the beers the nation is famous for and retiring to your luxury city pad. Less than two hours from London, this is the perfect way to spend some time with the girls before the big day with not an ‘L’ plate in sight.
Sunseekers should consider Sicily. Picture arriving at a stunning villa in the rustic foothills, with turquoise pool, lush gardens and a fridge full of prosecco, of course. Take time for some rest and relaxation before the big day; arrange spa treatments from the comfort of your villa, take an Italian cooking class or charter a boat to see some of the stunning coast line. A hen party in Sicily is bound to leave you feeling at your chilled-out best.
For those who would prefer a more raucous send-off, Ibiza is the clear winner. Famed for being the party capital of the world, Ibiza also offers some of the most luxurious villas money can buy. Escape the Strip and treat yourselves to a gorgeous, hilltop resort where you can recover from last night’s antics before you do it all again tonight! Ibiza is a highly popular destination, so make sure you organise your transport in advance from the airport so you’re not hanging about wasting precious party time.
Chiang Mai in Thailand has a lot to offer a group of luxury-seeking hens. Activities abound, you could be learning to cook Thai green curry, caring for rescued elephants or exploring lush Thai jungle and cooling off in the tropical waterfalls. But being a modern, cosmopolitan city, you’ll can also be sipping rooftop cocktails in a swanky bar by sunset. What more could you ask for?
Getting spiritual in Bali will appeal to holistic hens. The natural beauty and high vibrations of Ubud combined with luxury villas surrounded by idyllic rice terraces are hard to resist. Spend your days practising yoga, meditation and dining at amazing restaurants and you’re guaranteed to return for your wedding centred and feeling truly wonderful.
If you thrive on the buzz and bustle of a city look no further than New York City for your hen party. You and your ladies could be living out of your own Manhattan condo, taking in the sights of the city by day and quaffing cosmopolitans by night. Indulge in some pre-wedding and honeymoon retail therapy and party with the coolest drag queens NYC has to offer.
