Constance Moofushi, Maldives
When it comes to luxury, this romantic beachside resort (opening image) has it all. Set on its own secluded island, here you can relish walking barefoot along the beach and dipping your toes into the warm, crystal-clear waters. Sound like bliss? We think so, too. Book one of its villas, dotted along the powdery white sand, or splash out on a hideaway on stilts. Perched high above the glittering water of the Indian Ocean, each comes complete with a private plunge pool – perfect for all-day sun-basking. Early risers can start their day with a spot of sunrise yoga on the beach, or, for something more adventurous, discover the depths of the ocean at the resort’s diving centre (one of the best the South Ari Atoll has to offer) or go snorkelling in the lagoons (be sure to be on the lookout for blacktip reef sharks and manta rays). Afterwards, recharge with the hotel spa’s signature bio-marine treatment, before enjoying a romantic dinner under the stars at Alizee, where you can indulge in a serving of fresh seafood on the beach.
British Airways Holidays offers a discount of up to 50 per cent on stays for travel up to 30 September 2021. Book at least 45 days in advance and stay a minimum of three nights.
Dreams Las Mareas, Costa Rica
A tropical wilderness containing six per cent of the world’s biodiversity, hosting four Unesco World Heritage Sites and protecting 25 per cent of its land, Costa Rica is a destination unlike any other – particularly when you throw in the level of luxury available at Dreams La Mareas. Its Ultimate Luxury package allows guests to enjoy gourmet dining reservation-free, unlimited spirits and soft drinks, 24-hour room service and enough day and night activities to require serious willpower to ever head back to your sleeping quarters. You will be glad of the decision, though, as spacious, earth-toned rooms lead to private hot tub-equipped terraces or paths out to the pool. Sample the local culture by learning to make gallo pinto at the Costa Rica Cooking Class and Coffee Demo, and get to know the area through complimentary scuba diving, kayaking and wildlife watching.
British Airways Holidays offers seven nights all-inclusive from £999pp, travelling on selected dates from 1 November to 9 December 2021. Includes economy (World Traveller) return flights from London Gatwick Airport, 23kg luggage allowance and accommodation. Book by 31 May 2021.
Little Palace Hotel, Paris
Nothing says Paris like charming, cobbled historic streets and quaint boutiques. Tucked away, beside the leafy square des Arts-et-Métiers in the heart of the French capital, the Little Palace Hotel dates back to 1911. As well as its historic façade, its 53 rooms and four suites are elegantly decorated with original Art Deco features and boast a fresh contemporary feel throughout. From the comfort of your room, get set for the day with breakfast in bed and a cup of café au lait as you plan your afternoon of sightseeing. Famous landmarks such as Notre Dame and the Pompidou centre are just a short walk away – making it an ideal base for first-time visitors to the city. After an activity-filled day, rest your weary feet at the hotel bar, Le Bar, where you can enjoy afternoon tea or a glass of bubbly or two.
British Airways Holidays offers three nights for the price of two on stays from 1 August to 31 August 2021.
VidaMar Resorts, Madeira
With panoramic views combined with the sunny southern Madeiran coastline, Vidamar Resorts offers an oasis of luxury away from the hustle and bustle of the region’s touristy hub, Lido. Whether you’re spending quality time with the family or reconnecting as a couple, there’s plenty on offer for everyone. Luxuriate in one of its ocean-view suites or sunbathe poolside next to one of the resort’s three saltwater infinity pools. Unwind with a couples massage at the Thalasso Sea spa, or, if you have kids in tow, treat them to a day at the Aquatica Kids World, which features a kids’ swimming pool and an array of crafts, face painting and water sports. Eat in at any of the five restaurants on offer, including Sabor a Mar – the hotel’s beach view restaurant – which serves up a selection of dishes and locally caught fish such as black scabbard fish and tuna, or head into nearby Funchal which boasts a plethora of lively bars and restaurants so you can experience a taste of classic Madeiran culture and cuisine.
British Airways Holidays offers a discount of up to 40 per cent on five-night stays from 31 May to 31 Oct 2021. The second child stays free if sharing a room with two adults in a Double Room with a Garden or Side Sea View or Superior with Sea View. Book by 31 May 2021.
Universal Orlando Resort
For the ultimate, thrill-seeking family holiday, Universal Orlando Resort ticks all the right boxes. While Orlando is home to around a dozen theme parks, Universal Studios is the largest, offering a choice of three parks to explore: Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and, its newest addition, Volcano Bay. This year, the resort will debut the Jurassic World VelociCoaster (which is set to launch this summer), while Star Wars fans should head straight to the latest and greatest experience: Galaxy’s Edge to explore the planet of Batuu and fly the Millennium Falcon. Need a break from all the rides? You can expect far more than just theme parks here. Orlando is also where you’ll find some of Florida’s best shopping outlets, finest restaurants, and most captivating entertainment spots, many of which are located along the popular International Drive.
Pre-book your Universal Orlando park tickets and get three parks for the price of two (valid for admission before 31 December 2022). You can purchase the 3-Park Explorer Ticket for the same price as the 2-Park Explorer Ticket, giving you 14 days unlimited access to three amazing parks. This ticket is not available at any park’s entrance.
