Treat Yourself To 'Room Service'
Although COVID-19 may temporarily be stopping us from dining-in at cafés and restaurants, you may be pleasantly surprised to discover that many of Australia's most iconic venues have slightly changed their business models to offer delivery services instead.
Indulge In An At-Home Beauty Treatment
Before you begin, set the mood by lighting a candle and putting on some relaxing tunes. Smooth on a face mask, pop a nourishing treatment in your hair and sink into a bubble bath. Not a bath person? Try a shower bomb instead.
For maximum relaxation, don't forget to spend some time lounging in your robe when you exit the bath or shower.

If you'd like to take it up a notch and pretend you're meeting friends in the hotel bar, simply video-call them using Facetime, the Houseparty app or Zoom. Cheers!
