Fancy some sunshine to beat the winter blues and give yourself a much-needed serotonin boost?!
Here’s our top five destinations to do just that:
Barbados is a fabulous place to visit year-round, but in winter it turns into the playground for the rich and famous who head to the island in their droves for the glorious blue skies and warm climate. For your winter break, take a closer look at Cobblers Cove; originally a plantation house, this luxurious hotel in a tropical setting is sheer bliss!
A trip to the British Virgin Islands are certainly worth the extra travel time – think spotless beaches, fantastic activities on and under the water, a tropical climate and luxurious resorts and hotels. One such of which is the Rosewood Little Dix Bay – a favourite destination for discerning travellers, Little Dix Bay sits on the edge of a coral reef and has an award-winning spa.
A villa can offer a relaxing way to travel, with all the comforts of a resort or hotel but with added utter privacy. Particularly for a group of friends or family it can also be a cost-effective way to stay in luxurious locations in numbers. We love Les Jolies Eaux in Mustique – which was built and designed in 1971 by the renowned Oliver Messel for HRH Princess Margaret, the Countess of Snowdon.
Just a few hours flight from the UK, Tenerife is an excellent spot for some winter sunshine. An Inspiring Travel Company favourite is ABAMA Golf & Spa Resort in Tenerife. The hotel offers luxurious and well-appointed rooms and suites, Michelin-star dining and is a golfers paradise with driving range, golf academy and a challenging par 72, 18-hole course which includes 22 water hazards.
The colourful land of Morocco offers a diverse destination in which to discover some sunshine, as well as fabulous shopping, sight-seeing and cuisine. For your first exploration into the country try the Kasbah Tamadot. The picturesque walled complex is set at the foothills of the Atlas Mountains, with enchanting courtyards, landscaped gardens and breathtaking views.
