Destination Bachelorette Parties Made Easier with #SQUAD Getaway in Nashville

July 25th, 2016


The fall wedding season is fast approaching which means brides-to-be are gearing up for the most fun of all wedding traditions: the bachelorette party! The hospitality experts at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville, Tenn. share their tips on planning this rite of passage:


1.    Plan Ahead:  Make sure your plan at least a 1-2 months in advance for a destination bachelorette party. The bigger the group, the more you should prepare. Take advantage of holiday deals online for airfare and car rentals.



2.    R&R:  Find accommodations can be challenging when you’re working with a large group. Check out Loews Vanderbilt Hotel’s #SQUAD Getaway Package that includes luxury accommodations with rollaway beds, F&B credit, plus a unique group itinerary.


3.    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun: For a night in Nashville, hitting up Lower Broadway is a must. Check out Robert’s Western World for some old-school country music and dancing. Looking for something with a modern twist? Pinewood Social’s famous bowling alley and a show at Basement East are also great spots to check out.



4.    Brunch and Beyond: For an amazing view of downtown Nashville and the riverfront, check out Acme Feed and Seed’s rooftop bar. Other ideas: take the girls for wine tastings at City Winery, for small bites at BarTaco, to enjoy savory dishes at Mason’s, and to 5 Daughters Bakery or Sprinkles Cupcakes for sweet treats.



5.    Make Time to Primp: For some down time with the girls, retail therapy in Nashville’s 12th South Neighborhood, including Emerson Grace, Serendipity and Cateau. And no getaway is complete without some pampering. After 12th South, we recommend blowouts at The Dry House before going out on the town.

Jacada Travel, an off the beaten path, stylish tour operator, has just released a brand new Luxury Viet Nam and Cambodia Cultural Honeymoon where couples experience cultural and natural splendor on a privately guided, rich and exotic honeymoon through Viet Nam and Cambodia!

In Siem Reap, couples privately dine under the stars at their own Angkor temple equipped with a butler, a single violinist (or traditional Cambodian music, if they please), pre-dinner drinks under a canapé with authentic Cambodian dance as entertainment and a locally sourced, five-star menu. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to enjoy the sacred temples in total luxurious privacy, and Jacada Travel can even arrange a blessing by a Buddhist monk for those looking for the added special memory.

Honeymooners also experience comfortable tours to age-old Angkor Thom and travel by tuktuk to enchanting sights like Terrace of the Elephants and smaller local temples. The trip offers boat trips on Tonle Sap Lake to observe floating schools and markets, walking tours through the picturesque old port town of Hoi An, two days of sailing in Halong Bay and cycling tours in Hanoi.

In Viet Nam, couples are whisked away on Vespa street food tours through buzzy Ho Chi Minh, experience a quirky private road trip via Vietnamese sidecar to the historical Cu Chi tunnels, and have a humble, romantic boat journey down the Mekong Delta to explore authentic villages and lush jungle canals. All perfected, private and totally personalized by Jacada Travel.
