Lynx launches ultimate 'mancation' destination


Sadly, for many guys, holidays or weekend getaways can often mean romantic strolls on the beach, sightseeing, endless hours of shopping and uncomfortable talks about their feelings.

Yet the popularity of guys-only travel is rapidly rising in Australia with a growing number of men getting in touch with their primal roots and bonding with their mates on 'man-cations', according to the results of a new independent national study.  The study of 500 men revealed that 66% have taken a guys-only holiday with their friends in the last two years with another 56% saying a man-trip is on the cards in the next year.

Top man-cation activities cited by respondents include: drinking and partying (57%), male bonding (56%), watching sports (26%), 'adrenaline' activities (25%), playing practical jokes (25%) and gambling (21%).

'What happens on tour stays on tour' is the overriding rule of man-cations, with 54% of guys saying they withhold information from their partners regarding man-cation mischief. And having a break from their other halves is a key part of the appeal, with one in four (24%) guys saying that this is one of their favourite things about a boys' holiday.

A unique male travel concept will launch this November letting guys holiday like men at a lakeside lodge. The Lynx Lodge at Lake Macquarie, NSW, is kitted out with everything a guy could want in a manly getaway – pool table, spa, jetty and a highly trained team of lodging staff who also happen to be stunning part-time models.

Lodge staff will not only serve breakfast in bed and clean rooms, they'll party with guests, take them to the best fishing spots and help them improve their golf handicap.  Lynx Lodge is a refuge for guys who want to be pampered, but still feel like men.
