Fathers seem like a hard bunch to please. June is the month where you’ll start to see all sorts of Father’s day-related articles popping up around the Internet: ‘What your dad really wants for Father’s day’ or, more pointedly, ‘Gifts that dad will actually like’.
But dads are a simple bunch: They just want some time to themselves to celebrate their special day.
This Father’s day, Accor has curated a series of man caves for every type of dad at selected properties across Asia. According to them, dads can be classified into five general (and cheeky) species: The workaholic, the luxe dad, the couch coach, the foodie, and the sensitive new age guy (or SNAG for short).
Foodie dads will love the Gourmet Package at the Sofitel Saigon Plaza, which includes a Vespa city food tour adventure, an epicurean four-course dinner at the L’Olivier restaurant in the evening, and a wine tasting to round off the day. They’ll also get a special wine-and-cheese gift basket for stays from June 14 to 17. The workaholics, on the other hand, can get a digital detox at the Sofitel Zhengzhou, which will lock away their electronics while they explore Henan’s majestic parks and verdant mountains.
The luxe dad doesn’t just get a man ‘cave’ at the Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi: He gets a much-coveted mantuary. From floating breakfasts in his pool villa to sunset dinners on the beach, your dad is sure to be pampered. He’ll have a wide range of activities to choose from, too, including private tennis lessons and snorkelling trips with the resort’s resident marine biologist.
As for the sensitive new age guy — or any dad in need of finding some inner peace — whisk him off to the serene Fairmont Yangcheng Lake, which offers spectacular views of the water along with an array of therapeutic treatments and its own mineral pool.
