Forgetting Sarah Marshall. The fantastic 2008 rom-com where Peter, played by Jason Segal, tries to escape his cheating ex by taking a holiday to Hawaii, only to find out she’s also there, staying at the same resort, and having intense crazy sex with Russell Brand. Keen to avoid this happening in real life? The Aleenta Resort in Phuket, Thailand is the post-breakup holiday you need.
According to the hotel’s website, Aleenta Phuket offers the ‘Power of One’ break up package for singletons, jilted lovers, spurned suitors, divorce survivors and other casualties, designed to help you get over your romantic past.
The package includes a solo picnic in the serenity and solitude of the resort’s pristine Natai Beach, a spa session combining pampering, massage, relaxation and facial treatments to help you glow with inner confidence, yoga, meditation or a fitness session with your own personal instructor, and a day of good karma at a nearby turtle sanctuary, at the end of which you release a hatching into the wild in a ‘stirring ceremony’.
Plus, the hotel has just gone under a US$3 million makeover and expansion and boasts a private pool, lounge, sundeck as well as a stereo that at the push of a button will blast out a break-up playlist featuring ‘Titanium’ by Sia and ‘I Will Survive’. Who needs love?
