With back to school season just around the corner, the frenzy of packed lunches, soccer practices, and homework help might just make your head swim. But before the school schedule mindset settles in, treat yourself, your friends, and your kids to a day of fun and relaxation at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa– you all deserve it!
Drop your kids off to a world of creativity, innovation, and play at Kids Are Grand, located on the lower level of the Fitness Center. With our caring and exuberant Kids Are Grand staff, your children will jump into games, crafts, activities, and more for an action packed day. Kids Are Grand staff members can also care for your child in the comfort of your own guest room.
Grand Geneva also offers a summer camp for both day and night. Sign your kids up for Kids Adventure Camp either 11am-3pm or 5-9pm, the perfect duration for getting in some relaxing “me-time.”
While the kids play all day, hop on the trolley or walk along the blooming resort path to meet your friends back at your beautifully renovated villa for a peaceful summer morning on the porch or beside the water at the private villa pools. With groceries delivered right to your room, you could even whip up a breakfast buffet, or enjoy muffins, scones, and coffee at Café Gelato.
As mid-morning rolls around, tell the girls to grab their tennis shoes to hit the fitness center for a game of tennis, pickle ball, or even a rock climbing session. Classes such as yoga, cycling, and Zumba are also available and offered on weekdays to pump up the fun. Once you break a sweat, return to the main level of the Well Spa + Salon to exhale and truly relax with massages, nail care, hair treatments, and more. Soak up the serenity with a wide range of services and package options devoted to you and your friend’s well-being and reinvigoration.
The afternoon is early, and the time is just right for a delicious lunch with seasonal menu dishes and
authentic flavors. The Grand Café serves contemporary American cuisine in a casual dining atmosphere. Dig into dishes that are crafted and created seasonally with savory, fresh ingredients. Once the group is full, take a stroll on the grounds or sit by the pool for irreplaceable views of the Brute, one of our championship courses.
There isn’t much time left together, but still a few more hours to take a hike on the trails of the Adventure Center. With winding paths and incredible sights from the top of the hills, you’ll feel truly away from the responsibilities that await at the end of the trip. Head back to the resort for a decadent dinner at the Ristorante Brissago for a meal tasting straight out of Italy, with hand-made pastas, a sensational wine selection, and the freshest local ingredients.
Once the sun begins to set, you’ll know the time is right for a glass of wine before picking up the kids after a wonderful day. Gather the girls along the Embers Terrace for a drink and soak up the unforgettable and irreplaceable moments spent together before the hustle and bustle of fall settles in. Enjoy the time spent together and remember to return again for a girl’s getaway to the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa!
