Book Valentines Weekend in Thredbo & Score Serious Brownie Points
Posted on Friday, 6th of February 2015
Just like birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries and other special dates, we bet you’ve totally forgotten about the upcoming Valentine’s Day. I know women try to play it cool that they don’t care, a trick finely honed in the school playground but secretly everyone likes to feel special.
Luckily jumping online and booking a sneaky one bedroom Valentines getaway is totally easy and ticks every box to keep your brownie points up. The Lantern Apartments have some cool one bedroom options with outside balconies looking onto gorgeous green mountainous vista. A little bit of a rare find in Australia. So come on get your act together and surprise your loved one with a stay in Thredbo over the Valentine’s Day period.
Tineke is a popular massage therapist in Thredbo, she has plenty of return clients as well as staff around Thredbo. She can do reflex, remedial or aromatherapy as well as a nice relaxing swedish massage.
Whatever you think your partner would prefer. Massages can go for up to 1.5 hours, totally decadent. Call 02-6459 4200 to secure a booking.
Don’t forget to mention to the Lantern Thredbo Apartments (when you call 02 6457 6600) that you may need an apartment with a spa bath if you think you’re lacking in the brownie points department. There are a couple of apartments with these, even one with a spa bath on the balcony, looking out onto the gorgeous green rolling hills that may get you back into the good books. Don’t forget the champagne.
Most apartments have big cosy king size beds, depending how the night turns out. Or there’s always the fold out couches if it’s your personality that needs the work in the relationship. Keep that in mind. They’re comfortable too. For the personality, there’s always self-help books.
One-on-One Time in the Car
Luckily for those visitors who live in larger cities, Thredbo is a just a scenic drive away, and we all know car trips facilitate great side-by-side conversation, and it’s physically quite difficult to be assaulted with any sharp objects by either warring parties while you converse, communicate, make things right or just genuinely catch up on what’s new. Great for couples who live as ‘ships in the night’, an increasingly growing phenomenon as our lives become busier.
Don’t forget to drop in to the Schnapps Distillery enroute to Thredbo.
It’s just outside Thredbo on the Alpine Way and a nice little relaxing spot to shake the legs out, have a coffee or buy some gifts. Ph: 02- 6457 1447 for details or bookings for breakfast or lunch. There are a great range of yummy schnapps you can purchase and take with you for your Valentines celebrations. Open 10am-5pm.
Golf, tennis or bushwalks. They’re all at Thredbo and are a great way to reconnect. Sometimes we just need to press the reset button when life gets too busy.
Special Valentine’s Dinner
The Denman Hotel has a special 3 course Valentine’s dinner available. Bookings essential (ph-02 6457 6222). The great thing about basing yourself in the village for your accommodation is that everything is in walking distance, in case it’s all going well and you have a few drinks. No need to drive.
The Black Bear Inn is another Thredbo restaurant intent on looking after your love interest for Valentines. Their 3 course menu with a Bottle of Bubbles for only $65 per person is a great deal. Bookings Essential on (ph-02 6457 6216).
Consider it an investment in your relationship to put in the time over the Valentines period. And if all else fails after more one-on-one time, there’s always red roses. Cheaper a few days later, albeit if a tad droopy.
Over the summer period the Lantern Thredbo Apartments have a three nights for the price of two special which is available over the Valentine’s Day weekend so don’t miss out on a great opportunity to totally get it right with your loved one while the grass is green on the hills. Remember, the grass is always greener in Thredbo.
