Las Vegas has long been associated with bachelor/bachelorette weekends and girls trips galore, but for pre-bridal celebrations, BAZAAR girls are after something a little less fist-pumping and club hopping and a little more chic and easy–without skipping the terrific nightlife, ever-flowing cocktails and relaxing spa days. Here, our top 10 picks for the best in bachelorette weekends, from the Riviera Maya to the Greek islands.
Miami Beach, Florida
If it’s a quick trip you’re after, head down to Miami Beach for sun, sand and great nights out. This city is practically begging for you to spend the day on the beach or at the pool, followed by shopping in Brickell or on Lincoln Road and cap the day off with dinner at an award-winning restaurant, cocktails at one of many chic new bars and dancing all night long. For all the sophisticated, culture-filled riffs on the reasons you thought Vegas was the place to let loose, this is the ultimate girls trip destination.
Where to Stay: Faena Miami Beach offers everything you’d want and need for a girls getaway: Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin-decorated suites and amenities, a stunning spa, an Instagram-worthy pool scene, beach access, two terrific restaurants (open fire-focused Los Fuegos by acclaimed chef Francis Mallmann and Asian fusion with a twist at Pao by Paul Qui), and a lively night scene at their two bars, The Living Room and late-night speakeasy, The Saxony.
