Launch of the “glam-cation” puts a new spin on women’s travel

A boutique tour company is putting a new spin on luxury trips for women 30+ by launching the “glam-cation” – trips loaded with ultra-glamorous inclusions tailor made just for the girls - to Honolulu, Hong Kong and New York City.

Glamarama Getaways offers fully escorted all-girl getaways with glamorous, fun, indulgent and shop-til-you-drop holiday experiences.  The groups are small and intimate with a maximum of 14 ladies per trip for a premium one-on-one service.

The travel concept is unique - each trip includes attending an exciting event or activity such as an action-packed night out at an international horse race event or being first in line at a mega fashion sale.

Staying in luxury hotels close to the action, the tours combine sightseeing, world-class shopping, pampering and beauty sessions.  Each evening there’s a fun “Girls Night Out” event where the ladies get together to enjoy a glass of champagne and a cocktail or two and dine out at a hot foodie destination.

‘Tropics Shopaholics’ Tour (Honolulu, Hawaii):  7 - 15 September 2014
Sun, sand and shopping!  This relaxing tropical “glam-cation” is the ultimate vacay with the girls.  Enjoy soaking up the beautiful warm weather and relaxed aloha-vibe, yet still indulge in absolute luxury, world-class shopping, amazing dining and a hot nightlife.
