Want to have a good time but you’re just too lazy to plan? Staycation packages is the solution for those who simply want a fuss/research-free weekend. These packages often come bundled with activities that range from workshops like cookie-making and yoga sessions, to free bowling tickets and bicycle rentals.
These staycation packages often don’t cost much more than the usual room – for a nominal fee, you’ll get to experience so much more!

Many hotels even promise to refund bookers the difference should they find anything cheaper after your booking is made!
