Escape the Ordinary-How to plan that extra special holiday with your partner

In the rush of daily life, it is often difficult to find some quality time to spend together with your partner. While speaking on the phone when you are away, going on dinner dates, and binge-watching Netflix have become synonymous with romance, it is also necessary to get out of the rut and spend some time in its truest sense with your partner.

A vacation together is a great way to reconnect and rekindle the spark in your relationship. When you are at home, phone calls, work emails, bills, guests and several other things make it nearly impossible to disconnect completely. A vacation is when you completely switch off from these distractions.

Here are some suggestions to keep in mind while planning a special holiday with your better half.

A decision made together

Even if you mean to gift your partner a holiday, it is a better idea to discuss plans with him/her in advance. Planning for the trip together without considering your partner’s preferences and conveniences is a menu for disaster.

However, planning it together will ensure your partner can offer inputs, and will also make both of you look forward to the holiday. It also shows your respect and concern for your partner's comfort.

The right place to stay

You need ample leisure time with your partner on a holiday. Spending time together without constant distractions will help you focus on a meaningful quality conversation. Choose a romantic destination for your getaways such as Club Mahindra House Boats at Dal Lake, Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir. The houseboats have cozy, comfortable, and beautifully decorated rooms ideal for spending some quiet romantic time together. With the gorgeous Dal Lake around you, the chirping of birds and pleasant fragrant flowers everywhere, it is difficult not to feel at peace and more 'in love' with your partner. Enjoy the classic Bollywood romantic songs while sipping tea with your partner in the houseboat gallery and find yourself falling in love all over again.

If sparing more than a couple of days for a getaway seems difficult, try Club Mahindra's Zest Holidays, which are Club Mahindra's short break services. Head to a relaxed destination such as Pudducherry and unwind at Zest's Big Beach Resort for a short, but memorable weekend of sightseeing, shopping and entertainment.

Why are offseason vacations better

An important thing to keep in mind while planning a romantic getaway is the non-tourist season. When spending a romantic time together is the agenda, prioritise it. The tourist season comes with inflated prices, noisy crowds, and long queues. All these together are sure to test your patience and can trigger arguments and unpleasant moments. Off-season vacations mean a quieter time, lower prices, lesser crowds and better photos together for your social media platforms.

Gadgets - Do not disturb

It is a good idea to keep your gadgets away when you are on vacation with your partner. Even if you have got the perfect click, uploading it on social media and checking for likes can wait till you get home. It is a good idea to disconnect from these distractions and offer your complete attention to your partner. We know how annoying it is to hang out with someone who won't take his eyes off his phone. This is your romantic getaway, and your partner should be your priority.

At the same time, make sure to take some time off to do things that you like, which your partner might not enjoy. It is okay to spend a little time apart doing different activities. It will give both of you the space you need to do your thing and will help with more conversations over dinner.

With these tips, you are all set to plan your romantic getaway and ensure you make some beautiful memories with your beloved.
