Planning your best friend’s hen do and you’re stuck for ideas? Today’s blog describes five fun activities you can organise for your friends and bride-to-be, to ensure that this special day is nothing but an extraordinary experience.
1. Treasure Hunt in Valletta or Birgu
Organise a treasure hunt in one of the ancient cities and enjoy running around the beautiful streets of Valletta or Birgu whilst discovering new corners or admiring buildings and features you never noticed before. Once the hunt is over, stop at one of the many bars located either in the main street or down some quirky alleyway, for a celebratory cocktail or glass of wine! Such treasure hunts may be booked through our concierge team at The Phoenicia Malta.
2. Hire a Boat
Being surrounded by beautiful blue sea, why not turn the party into a nautical adventure? Charter a yacht, cruise around the island, stop at picturesque bays or creeks, and enjoy a dip in the sea for some snorkelling or SUP. You can enjoy music, food, and friends as you sail through the iridescent waters and live the high life!
3. Wine Tasting
The Maltese islands offers a wonderful selection of local wine that will appease even the most delicate of palettes so why not arrange a wine tour and tasting session for the girls? There are a number of wineries scattered across the islands where you can organise a private wine tasting for your group. Learn more about the history of wine in Malta as you sip on your favourite white or red grape variety, and raise a glass for the bride-to-be. More information on wineries in Malta may be found on our blogpost, here.
4. Cooking Class
Enjoy a group cooking class at The Mediterranean Culinary Academy in Valletta, where various recipes can be prepared, whilst also learning the history behind Maltese food and local ingredients. MCA also organise on-site activities, whereby visits to olive groves and such can be arranged. Get in touch with them via this link.
Can’t decide between a girly session at the spa or scrumptious food and unlimited bubbly? Well, you don’t have to choose! The Phoenicia Malta is now offering Sprunch, a combination of spa and brunch. Head over to Deep Nature Spa with your ladies for a relaxing 2 hours and enjoy stunning facilities such as the indoor pool, steam room and salt room. Once you’re feeling revitalised, head over to Phoenix Restaurant for sparkling brunch where you can enjoy a vast variety of delicious food items together with bottomless Proseccos, Bellinis and Mimosas. You may even start off with brunch first then relax at the spa after! Whatever you choose, it will certainly be a memorable afternoon.
