When you’re out for a vacation during the most wonderful time of the year, you’d want activities and facilities that go well with the theme and climate of the holidays. How so? While some countries celebrate the holidays during summer, other parts of the world are gripped by colder temperatures that make you just want to snuggle up and stay warm. For those who brave the snow – does a hot tub sound good? Well, that’s one example, and we’re here to talk about the rest. Here are some must-have amenities that you should look for in the next hotel you plan to book!
Exclusive Winter Fun
If it’s cold and snowing where you’re at, you’ll want to take advantage of fun that only happens in cold temperatures. We’re talking about ice hockey, ice skating, skiing, snowboarding. Many hotels offer these amenities, especially if they’re located near slopes and mountains. Bring your children for their first fun time on a sled, or on a skiing rink. Some resorts take it even a notch higher to keep the winter fun – they make their own snow! That way you and your loved ones can enjoy these snowy services for as long as the cold weather allows.
Keep It Warm
Freezing weather isn’t your thing? That’s what heated Jacuzzis, hot tubs, and fireplaces are for. Perhaps the room you’re booking could come with its own little fireplace or heated jacuzzi… or both! For a pretty penny, you can have a private fireside jacuzzi. Then again, these comforts are available both privately and communally. It all depends on which you’d prefer or want to afford. But hey, a heated jacuzzi is always a pleasure; a hot tub is always welcome! You must admit that while these are enjoyable all throughout the year, they’re even cozier when it’s chilly out.
Whether you’re done with dealing with the icy weather outside or you’ve already had your fill of outdoor fun, good quality indoor entertainment is not just a plus, it’s a definite must. Does your hotel have a restaurant that serves good food? It would be even better if they had several restaurants that you could choose from, and hopefully they serve hearty, warm food. Another good addition to indoor entertainment is a casino. For people who love the indoors, a casino is a haven! Card games and slot machines are a fun way to pass the time, and hopefully win a little something along the way.
If you’re lucky, your hotel may host winter parties in their function rooms that you could join for a fee. These parties offer a lot of good food, music, and opportunities to meet other people who are also there for the holidays. This provides a wonderful chance for you to make new friends to join in on the festivities and fun activities.
Sweat It Off
Some people may be conscious of the weight they’ve gained throughout the holidays. A hotel with a gym is the answer to your questions. Had too many mugs of warm eggnog? That’s just about two hours on the treadmill… Get to it! Book holiday cottages, lodges, castles and other accomodations with a great gym, and let Blue Chip Holidays help you find that perfect vacation place.
