When we reflect on life, we don’t think about a gift we received for our birthday or anniversary, we remember unforgettable moments. You know those moments where you feel the hairs prick up on your skin or when your stomach does a flip from excitement? Those moments usually go hand in hand with travel.
At Spicers, we specialise in making memorable moments for our guests to make their travel experience one to remember. So we have put together six ways we think you can make your travel more memorable.
1. Open Your Mind
Be open to new and different things. You might be afraid of heights but what better way to create an unforgettable moment and propose to your loved one after a helicopter flight over the 8,000 acres of breathtaking scenery at Spicers Peak Lodge.
Or why not open your mind to trying some unique food at our awarded restaurants? Like the kangaroo tail lamington at Spicers Hidden Vale.
Our most important discoveries and memorable experiences come from those we meet when travelling. Expand your horizons and embrace new people. A fantastic way to interact with people when staying with Spicers is to take part in a market garden tour. This experience provides guests the opportunity to interact with our chefs and learn about our paddock to plate philosophy & local produce.
3. Moments over Possessions
Possessions are not what memories are made of. Moments shape our character and the memories stay with us forever.
In 20 years’ time, that Gucci handbag will not have made a difference to your life and it will be a distant memory. The weekend you spent hiking through the Scenic Rim with a group of friends to celebrate your 40th birthday however, won’t ever be forgotten.
4. Be Present
There is no past and future; life only exists now. Be present and experience every moment. Step away from the computer and the lens and allow your five senses to soak up our exotic Spicers destinations. Enjoy every moment of being present at our unforgettable retreats and listen to the sounds of nature, smell the fresh air of the rainforest in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and taste the mouth-watering flavours in our carefully crafted dishes from our award-winning restaurants.
5. Take it slow
It does not matter how many places you have travelled to, it matters how deep your footprint was.
The beauty of making memories at Spicers Retreats is that everything is done at a slow and relaxed pace. Spicers very own Spa Anise day spas are the perfect way to slow down your body and mind to create unforgettable memories. Our spa experiences are designed to put back everything life takes out, whether it be indulging in a nourishing botanical facial or a soothing aromatherapy massage. With tranquil settings, fully qualified therapists and luxurious Waterlily products, Spa Anise day spas are an experience to truly remember.
6. Enjoy the simple things
It doesn’t always have to be about the must-see sights, the adventure and the bucket lists.
Go for an early morning ride at Spicers Vineyards Estate, have a picnic by the waterfall at Spicers Tamarind Retreat, do yoga on the lake deck at Spicers Clovelly Estate or swing in a hammock at sunset with a cocktail in hand at Spicers Sangoma Retreat. Whatever you choose to do, these experiences are what make unforgettable memories.
