5 Ways to Relax and Restore with a Staycation

Staycations are pretty trendy these days as people are looking to re-explore where they live with COVID restrictions easing. Some people say a self-care staycation is just as relaxing as taking off to a spa as it refreshes and recharges you. Others say that their families have as much fun bonding over backyard adventures as they do exploring theme parks and museums.

Did you put off last year’s vacation due to the pandemic? You’re not alone! Travel Pulse reports that travel was down nearly 75 percent in 2020. If you need to kick off the new year with some R&R, a staycation could be the answer to your pandemic prayers. Here are five ways a staycation can help you relax, rest, and restore.

Use the amenities at a local spa.

No self-care staycation would be complete without a hot tub soak, sauna, or massage — all of which are hard to do with COVID-19 around. However, it’s not impossible. Many spas and resorts are offering services that adhere to the CDC guidelines for safety.

For example, the Mahana Spa at Tahiti Village is a leader in safe and comfortable mind-body wellness. Guests in the hotel can rest easy knowing that rooms, restaurants, and amenities are all thoughtfully cleaned and prepped to keep each and every guest safe.

Dress the part.

Most people enjoy snagging a few new outfits for a special vacation, and a staycation should be no different. Inner and outerwear like a bra that is comfortable and stylish is perfect for the staycationer who wants to look good on the couch or out on the town. Leisurewear can help you relax while you binge-watch Netflix or keep you warm as you explore the great outdoors.

Take a drive.

So few of us take the time to see the interesting sights the city you live in has to offer. You can drive through the areas you know, but why not go beyond? From your car, you can explore your city’s unique architecture and history or get lost in nature on winding country roads. Plus, you can add a self-care element to a nice drive by listening to self-help podcastsnew albums from your favorite artists, or audiobooks to help you cultivate positivity and gratitude.

Go on a food tour.

Even though the pandemic has many restaurants closing their indoor dining, most have begun offering delivery and curbside pickup, as well as comfortable, socially-distant outdoor dining. Take a food tour — not only will this culinary exploration ignite your taste buds, but in the comfort of your own home or hotel room, you don’t have to worry about catching or spreading illness.

Tour museums virtually.

Now you don’t have to be in Paris to explore the Louvre or in Mexico to experience the National Museum of Archeology. Dozens of elite museums across the globe are keeping their doors open virtually — the perfect adventure for a staycation. In addition, several are also offering online classes and programming to complement online tours. Creation is a powerful way to embody self-care, from painting to crafting, so visit a virtual museum or take an online art course during your time off time at home.

Staycations were increasing in popularity long before the COVID-19 crisis. What kinds of staycations does your family enjoy? Adventure, relaxation, self-care — these vacations may seem out of reach with the pandemic, but with a little creative thinking, you can travel the world from your home.

Las Vegas Is Waiting For You

Las Vegas is bouncing back, and shows are starting to re-open. Occupancy rates for hotels and casinos are on the rise. Restaurants are seeing reservations picking up quickly and regularly having wait times during peak dining hours. Other attractions and entertainment options in the city have increased to 80% by the state Government, and the city is aiming for 100% occupancy rates in early June. All of this means that Vegas is back and ready for your next vacation!

Are you Ready to Come Back?
Join the trend of increasing passenger traffic coming through McCarren Airport. According to their latest data, just over 2.9 million passengers arrived at their terminals in the month of March 2021. That’s up from 2.1 million in March. As airlines begin to adjust their rates, you’ll likely save money by booking your flights sooner rather than later. Airport traffic is always a great indicator of the interest in Vegas, and we love to see things returning to normal.

The Intermission is Over!
Shows like Absinthe and Atomic Saloon Show, by Speigelworld, are now open Wednesday – Sundays, offering safe seating pods. Speigelworld is also diligently working to re-open, Opium, so their trio of wildly popular shows will be here to entertain you during your next vacation. Their shows are perfect for people looking for something a little off-kilter and edgy in the evenings.

If you prefer the acrobatics and theatrics of Cirque de Soleil, you’ll be able to see Mystère and O in person again soon. Mystère will re-open at TI on June 28th, and just three days later, on July 1st, O is back in business at Bellagio. Cirque shows have been closed since the initial shutdown in March of 2020.

Other shows like David Copperfield, Blue Man Group, and Jabbawockeez have been open and operating for some time now as well. The entertainers and their fantastic support staff have been eagerly waiting for the chance to bring their craft back to the stage, and the time is finally here. Remember that you can get tickets to these great shows and more from our concierge desk during your stay!

Getting around the strip just got easier because, on May 11th, the Las Vegas Monorail started running again. Now visitors can quickly get between all of the stops on the East side of the strip and get to their next destination as fast as possible. Remember that you can buy day passes to the monorail to save some money and get around quickly all day long!

What’s New at Tahiti Village?
At Tahiti Village, we are working hard to ensure that the rooms, sand entry pool, lazy river, and other amenities are clean and ready for you to make us your home base for your next Las Vegas vacation. We continue to follow the strictest CDC recommendations for cleaning and sanitizing our resort. Our team is working on new onsite activities for guests of all ages to enjoy during their stay, be on the lookout for more details. Also, we have recently been able to open our hot tubs again, which we know many guests will be excited for!

If you haven’t stayed with us recently, you have yet to experience Arturo’s Village Pizza, which recently won the Best of Las Vegas Bronze for Best Pizza in Las Vegas. Be sure to grab a few slices or even a whole pie for the family when you stay with us in the future!

To keep the tropical vibe strong, the Luau is back in business and better than ever. We have spent the last year looking at ways to make the Luau more immersive, and you’re going to LOVE the changes that we have made. The event space has had a cover added to it to help block out the sun during the early part of the show, and for those arriving early, the new experiences are sure to keep you entertained before the main show.

And if you needed more of a reason to visit us, Mermaid Mondays are back and better than ever! CaySea the Mermaid is upping her showing this year. We will also be offering “Swim with the Fin” classes for children to learn to swim with their own fins! For little girls, they learn to swim in mermaid tails, and little boys will get shark fins. This kind of experience is something your children will remember for years to come!

When you stay with us for your vacation, our goal is to make it your best vacation yet to feel like you are part of the Tahiti Village family. We hope to see you soon.

National Plan For Vacation Day

National Plan For Vacation Day is here once again! Take action and plan out how you will enjoy this year’s vacation time.

In 2015 the U.S. Travel Association uncovered an unfortunate finding. Through working with travel industry partners to collect data on vacation time usage, they found out American’s were not using their vacation time. In fact, in 2018, more than 55% of American’s had let their vacation time go unused for the year. Taking time off to unplug helps decrease stress, uplifts moods, and allows you to strengthen connections with others. This is why we emphasize the need to plan out how you will be using your vacation time. You earned it, don’t miss out on this crucial benefit.

Although it is tempting to procrastinate on planning, those who plan tend to use more of their vacation time than those who don’t. To further entice you, we are currently offering 30% off at Tahiti Village when you book for 3 nights by February 28, 2021. Our rooms come equipped with the comforts of home, including a full-sized kitchen, dishwasher, and more. Our resort also has a heated lazy river, sand entry pool, and other features we are sure will help you relax.

How to Celebrate the Holidays in the Midst of the Pandemic

How to Celebrate the Holidays in the Midst of the Pandemic

How to Celebrate the Holidays in the Midst of the Pandemic

Written by: Emma Grace Brown ~ emmagracebrown.com

With COVID-19 remaining a significant concern in many places, holiday plans are changing for many. From cooking family recipes over Zoom calls or shuttling dishes and gifts between households, your holidays will likely look quite different this year. Use this guide to help your family cope this holiday season, whether it’s signing on for family video chats over turkey dinners or opening presents on Zoom.

Safe travel tips and considerations

While many are opting to stay home and avoid the risk of contracting COVID-19, others are choosing to travel to see family or for holidays. The CDC recommends that people stay home, but if you choose to travel, be sure to heed the following advice.

First of all, it’s wise to ask yourself whether your travel is necessary. If you’re thinking of traveling to see family members who may be considered at-risk, it’s probably better to avoid making the trip. Even if your plans include traveling to a family-friendly resort and having a mini-holiday, it’s still vital to consider the risks before booking your travel.

If you do choose to travel, first check travel restrictions. Some states require a quarantine period, especially if you’re coming from a high-risk area. Get your flu shot before you travel, and wear a mask in all public settings, when using public transportation, and around people you don’t live with. Keep a six-foot distance from others, and wash and sanitize your hands often.

Virtual celebration tips

For those who choose to stay home and reduce the risk of transmission, you can still celebrate the holidays with your immediate household and have virtual celebrations with loved ones who live far away. You can get together virtually through Zoom, but ensure you have the right equipment to make the most out of your virtual get-togethers.

One item that will improve your video calls is a new laptop or tablet. You can get great deals on both tablets and laptops online from a number of different manufacturers, so do your research before buying. Another great product is a webcam, which can make your video chat feed much clearer for the rest of the family.

If you have a big family, it might make more sense to use a projector so all your family members can see friends and family easily while chatting. Along with allowing you to view your family and friends on the big screen, a projector will be great for family movie nights. Be sure to read reviews, study project features, and learn about the various resolution options before buying.

Holiday survival tips

In the absence of gatherings, people are getting really creative this holiday season. Thanksgiving is usually a time for families and friends to cook together, and some are planning to do so online. From learning how to make your mom’s favorite stuffing to getting the turkey just right, you can video chat with your friends and family throughout your meal prep. It’s the next best thing to being in person, and it will likely be more fun than you expect.

While it may be difficult to imagine celebrating Christmas without your extended family, you can still exchange gifts by shipping presents to one another and agreeing to open them together via video chat when the time comes. If you’re buying gifts for kids in your life, some of the hottest holiday toys will be available online at heavy discounts, so do your research before you buy.

In a year filled with difficulty and uncertainty, managing the risk of COVID-19 through the holidays may feel challenging. If you’re traveling, be sure to wear your mask in public settings and quarantine yourself as necessary. If you’re staying home, make use of video chats to spend time with your family online. It might not be the same as you’re used to, but it will help keep your family safe during the dangerous pandemic season.
