Men have changed. For some, the traditional stag weekend of dressing up, drinking, playing pranks and chasing girls has become de rigueur. This new man wants to be treated like an individual, expects more and is looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
We’ve all seen films like ‘The Hangover’ and understand that all the money in the world can’t stop a poorly planned stag weekend quickly turning into a nightmare. However, if money were no option, just how good can astag weekend get? Let’s look at three options for modern men.
Celebrate your stag weekend James Bond style with a Casino Royale weekend. High-rollers deserve the best and the best hotel in Las Vegas is the Encore At Wynn. Each suite features a range of luxury appointments, including a wet bar, massage room, lounge with digital TV and panoramic views of Las Vegas. If you’re lucky enough to win out on the casino floor you can top off your Vegas stag weekend with one of the Wynn hotel’s famous Ono Champagne Cocktails. Made with Ultra Rare Louis XIII Black Pearl cognac, each glass will set you back $10,000.
For those with an interest in ecology and nature, Iceland is home to several of the world’s most interesting geological phenomena and will make for an original stag weekend. Spend your days hiking through snow-capped mountain ranges and exploring volcanic sites like Thrihnukagigur. When you have finished, take a trip to the Blue Lagoon to chill out. Heated by seawater passing through geothermal vents, the pools contain enriching mineral mud with healing properties. When you have finished relaxing and healing at the lagoon you can take a trip to see the Northern Lights, one of the most breathtaking natural phenomena in the world. Iceland is one of the best places in the world to catch a glimpse of them. A truly priceless experience.
The Sports Fan
Few sporting events in the world compare to El Cllsico, the name given to football matches played between Real Madrid and Barcelona. It is arguably the greatest club match in the world. Watching this game in Barcelona means a visit to the Nou Camp, Europe’s biggest and most famous football stadium. And as money is no object, you will be getting the VIP Gold tickets. Not only does this mean you sit by the benches with the very best view in the stadium, where you are so close you can see the expressions on the players’ faces, you also get exclusive access to the Avantllotja d’Honor VIP Lounge, which offers a range of complimentary catering. After the match you can soak up the culture and atmosphere with a walk down La Ramblas and party at one of the many bars, restaurants and nightclubs that adorn one of the most famous streets in the world.
