It is finally time for you and your family to take the Pesach (Passover) vacation. With the holiday approaching, there is less time for planning the perfect vacation. When observing Pesach, there are certain things you must take care of to ensure you all have a wonderful time during the vacation. The most important factor is choosing the best resort. It involves a lot of factors, as you need to find a kosher-specific resort to observe the holiday in full spirit. This blog dives into a few things to remember when choosing the resort.
If you are traveling to Palm Beach, Florida, there are plenty of options for Passover resorts. This is an ideal place to spend the holiday due to its wide selection of kosher offerings. From luxury hotels to traditional dining experiences, there are plenty of places to find delicious fares that meet kosher dietary laws. There are many local synagogues and activities for families and educational programs like classes and lectures throughout the week.
Awareness of the costs associated with food, travel, and lodging can help keep you from exceeding your budget. Keeping track of expenses can give you greater insight into what went wrong when planning and enable you to adjust accordingly for future trips. Knowing how much money will be spent can help families enjoy their holiday without worrying about overspending or running out of funds.
Set up a budget and narrow down your choices based on that. A five-star resort will cost you more. Do some groundwork to figure out whether certain resorts are offering festival discounts. Moreover, a big group of travelers will likely get discounts on food and stay.
The crucial factor of a fun Jewish holiday is the food. You would want a variety of choices for food while ensuring it’s Kosher. You must find a stay that avoids products made with leavened grains such as wheat, barley, spelt, and rye. Instead, they should serve matzah (unleavened bread), a holiday meal staple. Other traditionally consumed foods include charoset (a mixture of apples, cinnamon, and nuts). Typically, Passover travelers enjoy wine, gefilte fish, chicken soup with matzah balls, roasted vegetables, and more.
Contact the resort or go to their website to check if they follow Jewish traditions while preparing food. Also, research if there are any Jewish restaurants near the resort.
Safety and Security
Safety and security are a huge priority when traveling with your family. So, do a little research to ensure how safe the resort’s surroundings are and if they have proper security in place to ensure the safety of guests.
A decent Passover resort should offer various amenities, from a spa to a swimming pool. Consider entertainment options catering to all age groups if traveling with a bigger party. Specifically, children enjoy running around, so the resort should provide ample areas to explore. Look for resorts that offer guided tours and other activities.
Most importantly, discuss with your traveling group their dietary and entertainment needs. You must ensure that everyone traveling with you has a good time. Specifically, elderly members might need certain amenities and facilities, which must be discussed with the resort beforehand. Preparing a list will help you plan seamlessly.
