“It was like a dopamine hit every time you walked onto the Barbie set,” said Margot Robbie of the hit film, in which she plays the iconic doll herself.
Barbie is busy making cinematic waves this summer, and we have to admit: we just can’t get that dopamine-quote out of our minds! What’s not to love about cheerful, brightly-coloured surroundings that transport your mind to a happy place? A place where everyone smiles, the sun always shines, and just about anything feels possible.
What’s even better is, we know a fair few retreats that fit the ‘dopamine-hit’ brief perfectly! So if you’re ready to swap dull, dreary everyday life for something a little brighter and more beautiful, we’ve created this list especially for you.
Creative, flamboyant, and unashamedly bold, each one of these fabulous retreats has been custom-designed to inspire gasps of wonder, grins of pure delight, and sugar-coated memories that promise to last long after you’ve returned home.
(Especially since you’ll be updating your social feeds in what’ll feel like every few seconds!)
Dopamine-stays are always luxurious – can you imagine Barbie without her amazing accessories? – which means there’ll be plenty of lavish treats in store, too.
So pour a glass of bubbles, pop on those hot-pink shades, and get browsing!
