Valentine’s day is just around the corner and as usual, all the best restaurants are going to be completely full, you’re gonna have to wait in line for a couple of hours along with your S/O and that’s not exactly the best way to bond.
Also, is it just me or is dinner and a movie just way too boring at this point? If we’re on the same page, then here are some offbeat things you can do this Valentine’s Day in Goa
1. Staycation: Plan a staycation with your loved one, be it your spouse, your parents or your best friend. EVERYONE needs a staycation! One night at a resort is the perfect way to bond and do activities that are both relaxing and fun! I would recommend The Heritage Village in Arrosim. Located on Arrosim beach in South Goa, The Heritage Village is the perfect spot for families, couples or even a group of friends. They’ve got a wide range of activities including swimming, water sports, paint ball, archery, indoor games and even a spa if you’re looking for some R&R. It’s also perfect if you have kids and are looking to spend some quality time with your husband/wife.
2. Spa date: Valentine’s day is all about love and I cannot stress enough on how self-love is the best kinda love! Go all out this Valentine’s day and treat yourself to a Spa day. Get a relaxing massage, a pedicure, maybe even a haircut! You could also treat your best friend, mom or spouse to a couples massage. Ofcourse, there’s not gonna be much bonding, but it’s a great way to pamper them. Spas that I would personally recommend for this sort of activity are Snip Spa and Salon and Shape and Shine, Donapaul. If you’re on a low budget, go buy yourself a sheet mask, light a scented candle and spend the night watching Netflix or reading a book.
3. Bike Trail: Sure, romantic dinners are nice but can you up the ante with something more fun? Let your inner ‘sport’ shine and impress your date with a specially curated fun ride on stylish e-Bikes. With a special Divar Island tour by B: Live, make this Valentine’s Day a memory worth cherishing. The open paddy fields and wooded hills of Divar island make for a perfect romantic gateway. The e-Bike tour will help you bond as you explore the local culture and soak up the magical sunset. Revel in the romantic Goan music and delectable local delicacies at a century old Indo-Portuguese house. Plenty of selfie moments, cultural anecdotes and the fun e- Bike tour, will make your day unforgettable. Book your spot on tour by logging on to www.blive.co.in, call on 8669600373.
4. Dinner: If at the end of the day, you are old school at heart and dinner is more your thing, then I’d recommend two restaurants: Mahe in Anjuna for their romantic candlelight setting and delicious coastal food; and Orchid by Fortune Miramar located right near Miramar beach. Orchid has a special Valentine’s dinner menu with aphrodisiacs in every dish. If you and your partner are foodies, then I’d highly recommend Orchid for their experimental menu. If you’re just looking for a romantic setup and good food, then Mahe is the place you want to be. Your call, just make sure you ring them up asap and make a reservation!
So how are you spending Valentine’s day this year?
