After the 'guys getaway', the 'ultimate man-cation'
An Australian resort billing itself as the "ultimate man-cation" is set to open later this year.
The guys-only "Lynx Lodge" will open later this year on the shores of Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, promising to cater for everything a man could need on vacation.
The resort offers kayaking, pool, golf, fishing, dirtbike riding and volleyball games, along with a spa and jetty.
Guests are also treated to on-the-spot back rubs on request, breakfast in bed and "sexy wake-up calls" from lodge staffers, a team of part-time models on hand to look after male visitors.
Evening entertainment includes mud wrestling and games of Twister, explained the resort's manager Josette O'Sullivan.
"The Lynx Lodge is a unique travel concept where guys can come and stay and get in touch with their primal roots," she said.
"Basically the lodge is tricked out with all the toys and gadgets a guy could possibly want for a premium man-cation destination."
The November opening is a trial to gauge interest, but early reaction from men in Sydney has been positive and there's a growing trend for man-cations, says Lynx.
It could be right - earlier this year, US hotel chain Sonesta launched a "Guys Getaway" package offering chilled beer on arrival, golf, diving or geek tour packages at its hotels around the world.
