Planning YOUR Mancation

Looking to book a mancation in the U.S.? Experience San Diego like Jonathan did or consider these other cities that are ideal for mancations:


The sunshine might tempt you to spend your vacation drinking margaritas next to the pool, but don’t give in! Explore the city and experience the best of Phoenix. Sit back and relax at major league baseball game, take an ATV tour in the desert and play a few rounds of world-class golf. Stay at the historic Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, known as “the jewel of the desert.”


Stay in the quaint, yet exciting city of Louisville, but experience much more of Kentucky while touring the Bourbon Trail. Head out to Fourth Street at night before unwinding at the historic Seelbach Hilton Louisville.

In Rome, the spirit and ethos of the ancient city is everywhere. The ruins of the Forum, the Palatine Hill, the Circus Maximus, all evoke the lives of those who once lived here at the center of an empire. At the Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel & Resort, guests can experience the world of the gladiators who fought and often died in the Coliseum two thousand years ago.


Bali’s beautiful beaches, thriving party scene, great food and myriad of outdoor activities will keep the adrenaline pumping. Unwind at the Conrad Bali located on the coast of Nusa Dua at Tanjung Benoa.
