by / Wednesday, 15 March 2017 / Published in Blog, General

The last day of vacation is one of the most dreaded parts, as you bid farewell to the sun and sand and head back to your everyday life. If your fortnight of fun is over, there’s no need to go to spare. Try these tips from Coconut Bay’s followers for handling the post-holiday blues.

Take Some Island Spirit Home with You

You don’t have to leave all the island charm in St. Lucia. Take a little of the laid-back spirit of the Caribbean home with you. Our recent visitor JoAnn shared that she “Kept my braids to keep vacation mode going.” Pick up a few great souvenirs to take home with you so you can channel the island spirit anywhere you are. Boutique Moule-a-Chique at Coconut Bay offers everything from coconut soaps to bottles of local rum so you can take something special home with you.

Whether you’re rocking a manicure from our Kai Mer Spa for a few weeks after your return, or recreating our tropical drinks in your own living room, there are plenty of ways you can keep the St. Lucian vibe going.

Book Your Next Visit

By far the most popular recommendation for coping with post-vacation blues is to book your next holiday. Emma even mentioned her plan to “Work loads of overtime to rebook.” Now that’s dedication! Planning your next visit and marking it on the calendar is a great way to keep your spirits up if you’re in a post-vacation slump. Check out our specials for summer and fall of 2017. We have deals all the way through December to make your next trip a little more achievable.

Revisit Your Memories

Keep your Coconut Bay memories alive long after you’ve returned home by putting them on display around your home. Print out your favourite vacation photos and make a scrapbook that you can set on the coffee table and flip through at your leisure. Enlarge a few prints and hang them on the wall so you can look back warmly on these memories any time you’re feeling nostalgic. If your kids participated in the CocoLand SCOUTS program, they received a scrapbook as one of their welcome gifts so you have a ready-made spot to stick your photos.

Don’t let your return to reality leave you gutted. Perk up with these tips and keep your focus forward on your next return to Coconut Bay’s St. Lucian paradise.
