A Travellers’ Guide to Planning Your Do-Nothing Vacation

When the idea of traveling comes to mind, most people think about itineraries they need to follow and promotions they should take advantage of. It can be overwhelming. What if we told you it doesn’t have to be this way—what if we said it IS possible to have a vacation where you don’t have to overexert yourself?

Well, that’s exactly what a do-nothing vacation is No plans, no problems, no stress—just pure, unadulterated enjoyment and mindfulness.

Do-nothing vacations explained

Within the last few years, vacations have inadvertently become an entire overwhelming form of competition where travelers feel compelled to cram as many activities and as possible into their itineraries.

Now, while there may not be anything wrong with trying to maximize the opportunities that one comes across on a special trip, the game of “who can do the most” ultimately makes the entire experience counterproductive. Imagine this: instead of enjoying your trip by taking your time and experiencing as you go, you end up pressuring yourself to see and do everything without being able to fully enjoy the experience and be in the moment.

Sounds absolutely nonsensical and devoid of logic, right? Well, this is where do-nothing vacations can provide a solution for better vacation experiences.

Simply put a do-nothing vacation is just that—its an approach to local and international trips that ensures a more relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere when planning for a vacation. Instead of feeling pressured by uptight schedules and packed plans, going on a strict do-nothing vacation encourages you to live in the moment, go with the flow, and relax when you are far away from home.

A step-by-step guide to planning do-nothing vacations

To better illustrate how you can put together an unforgettable do-nothing vacation, let’s go over each step in greater detail and use a trip to Phuket as an example:

Step #1: Pick a destination

The first step of putting an enjoyable do-nothing vacation together is to settle on a particular destination that you’d like to experience in the most relaxing way possible. In this case, we’ve settled on the serene and beautiful shores of Phuket by the Andaman Sea for that ultimate do-nothing vacation experience.

Step #2: Select a relaxing accommodation option

When it comes to picking a place to stay during your vacation, the main thing to keep in mind is that essentially you will need the type of accommodation that helps you get into the most relaxed state as soon as possible. For instance, The Andaman Beach Hotel Phuket offers world-class service, delicious food, drinks by the pool, spa treatments and other facilities that help you go from uptight to zen-like in a blink of an eye—the perfect combination for a relaxing time!

Step #3: Take your leave, switch off your mobile, and cut off communication

An integral part of a do-nothing vacation is making sure that your entire experience is as peaceful and uninterrupted as possible. Keep in mind that this type of vacation often entails taking work out of the equation for this short period. Once you’ve managed to pick the date and place where you’d like to go, submit your leave application and tell your boss/supervisor/staff in advance that you can’t be reached during your vacation.


No matter how exciting a packed itinerary for a trip out of town or the country may be, nothing beats a break where you only have to worry about yourself, how you feel, and what you’ll be eating for your next meal!. This is what makes the idea of do-nothing vacations so appealing.
