It is so easy to get caught up in life and forget about our friends. Sometimes, you just need a few blissful days with only you and your girlfriends – no kids, no partners, no payroll. There are so many ways to get away, no matter if you are looking to reset and refresh with a yoga retreat, soak up the sophistication of a European icon, or go beyond traditional girls’ trips and experience a new destination for the first time. So, send out the group message and round up your best friends because these are four of the best destinations for your girls’ trip.

Best Girls’ Trip Destination for Shopping: Paris

The streets of Paris could be a catwalk, which is why it is best to head to the French capital, where even shabby looks chic when you and your girlfriends need your retail therapy fix. Your mornings can start with petit dejeuner and people-watching the ultimate fashion show at a corner cafe, or visit a local boulangerie for a flaky croissant or crisp-edged baguette to fuel up for hopping between luxury fashion and jewelry flagships on the Champs-Élysées, chic boutiques in Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the sophisticated home decor shops of Le Marais. Looking for pieces to take home? Uncover quirky art around Montmartre. For a dose of culture that is not the Louvre or Musée d’Orsay, take time to wander the galleries of Musée Marmottan Monet, Musée Rodin, and Petit Palais.

For classic French glamour, book at Hotel Raphael. Each guest room is individually decorated, and the hotel has a fitness center and sauna – perfect for retreating to at the end of a long day exploring Paris’ fashionable boulevards. For a longer stay, Aparthotel Adagio Paris Montmartre offers classic Parisian studios and apartments.

Best Girls’ Trip Destination for Beaches: Mexico

Sometimes, you just want to soak up the sun, and you do not need to travel too far to do so! This southern neighborhood is a classic girls’ trip destination, beloved for its proximity to home and its offering of all-inclusive luxury resorts, high-end private villas, and all kinds of accommodations in between. From Cancun to Cabo, a girls’ trip to Mexico promises warm breezes, sugary sands, and biodiverse landscapes. Whether your idea of a girls’ vacation is a group activity sailing the waves in a catamaran or paddling with marine life, or reclining on the shore, Mexico’s the perfect place to get the band back together. Toss in incredibly fresh and affordable seafood and rock salt margaritas, and everyone will be happy.

For dreamy ocean breezes, check in to The Westin Resort & Spa, Cancun, or the all-inclusive Marriott Cancun. West Coasters should consider a stay like Corazón Cabo Resort & Spa in lively Cabo San Lucas. Other destination possibilities include Tulum, for an even more spectacular coastline; Mexico City, for a lively cosmopolitan break; and Punta Mita, for upscale resorts and hotels.

Best Girls’ Trip Destination for Culture: Dubai

Ready for something completely different? Sandwiched between the calm waters of the Persian Gulf and the sands of the Arabian Desert, Dubai’s modern architecture sparkles across the sky. See traditional mosaic art in the streets next to skyscrapers and wooden dhows in the water alongside private yachts. The city’s so photo-worthy it has its own giant Frame – be sure to snap a few of your group on probably the most memorable trip you’ve ever had together. Explore the labyrinthine stalls of the Gold and Spice Souks and embrace new-age shopping at one of Dubai’s mega malls. If you and your girlfriends love an adventurous activity, then an excursion into Dubai’s desert is for you – some include sunset camelback journeys, BBQ dinners amongst the dunes, and cultural dancing performances.   

Opt for a central stay at the sophisticated Shangri-La Hotel, Dubai, or the waterfront Palazzo Versace Dubai. To truly ensure an unforgettable vacation, no hotel delivers quite like Atlantis, The Palm. This five-star palace is the crown jewel of Palm Island and has no less than 32 dining venues on-site, including Nobu Dubai and Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen & Bar. A private beach and jaw-dropping spa are cherries on top.

Best Girls’ Trip Destination for Wellness: Ubud

Even before the Eat, Pray, Love phenomenon, wise women in the know traveled to Bali to heal themselves, body, mind, and soul. Head to Ubud, the Island of the Gods’ spiritual heart, to explore movement workshops, meditation retreats, shamanic healers, and serendipity in the streets. Whether you are looking to do some soul-seeking surrounded by friends or practicing mindfulness among ancient shrines and banana leaves, anything goes in this jungle. To immerse yourself in Bali’s incredible culture even further, look to explore some of the island’s most breathtaking sights – waterfalls, rice paddies, and Hindu temples.

For a truly holistic experience, retreat to Blue Karma Dijiwa Ubud’s jungle sanctuary. Kayumanis Ubud Private Villa & Spa has just 23 villas, each coming with a private butler service, a private pool, and lush tropical gardens. Or, for a girls’ trip with out-of-the-box accommodation, look to an eco-luxury treehouse at Bambu Indah.
