Hotels exist for many purposes: offering a bed for weary travellers to stay the night, hosting special occasions, and unburdening travellers from life’s many responsibilities.
Since the pandemic and the advent of the staycation phenomenon, hotel services have expanded to accommodate a weekend getaway or a workspace for remote employees. Daycations are also increasing in popularity, encouraging guests to enjoy a slow day surrounded by luxurious amenities like a private swimming pool, or a change of scenery whilst working from home.
Looking to book a daycation? Pack your bags and grab your sunglasses; we speak to the experts at Flow—an app that helps travellers secure short stays anytime, anywhere—for recommendations on which hotels to book for the best summer daycations.
Note: In light of government regulations, please call ahead to inquire about operating hours and facility arrangements.
