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 hot tub??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.
