Put on a brave face with a stay at the Ulusaba Private Game Reserve; Ulusaba, meaning 'Place of Little Fear' provides the ultimate tracking destination. Whether going on a walking Safari or game drive you’ll be in the heart of the experience staying in the exclusive Sabi Sand Game Reserve, bordering Kruger National Park- the perfect place for spotting the ‘Big Five’! Immersed in the gifts of nature; stays can be shared between the Rock Lodge perched high on the summit of a rocky hill and Safari Lodge which is built tree house style inclusive of swing bridges and walkways. After a day with experienced trackers and game rangers, truly relax by the pool, play tennis on a floodlit court, or let go of reality in soothing surroundings at the Aroma Boma Spa.
Go on a hunt for the most infamous Scottish monster! The Loch Ness Monster or more affectionately known as Nessie is a large dinosaur-like monster which there has reportedly been sightings of for over 100 years! With over 21 square miles of water and depths of over 800 feet, there are a lot of places for dear Nessie to hide! Make it a truly memorable adventure by staying on the south shore of Loch Ness itself at the amazing Aldourie Castle. Renowned for its baronial turrets and towers this fairy-tale location dates back to the 17th century and is finished to the highest standards. Accommodating 28 people within 14 stunning bedrooms that all look out to remarkable views of Loch Ness or the surrounding parkland, the castle also boasts a drawing room, well stocked library, a hall for music and dance, a snug sitting room, a billiards room with full size table and plasma TV and a dining room. Comfortably cook in the well equipped kitchen or enjoy life’s luxuries and have a personal cook cater to your needs.
The city of romance has a terrifying underground secret, The Catacombs of Paris; which is a vast network of skeleton lined caverns beneath the streets of Paris! Anyone who spends a day at the Catacombs will need somewhere exceedingly plush and comfortable to lay their head to send away those night terrors. Head to Le Meurice, the first Parisian palace, which sits in the heart of the city and is a short walk from most famous landmarks including the Louvre. Le Meurice is a member of the Dorchester collection and features 60 beautifully appointed rooms decorated in a style redolent of Louis XVI. An array of choices to delight the palate including creations by three Michelin star Chef, Yannick Alléno, be thoroughly spoiled with a stay at Le Meurice and hopefully the terrors of the day will be long forgotten…Careful though, each room is soundproofed so no one will hear your screams…
Embedded in the primitive Maya tropical forest, alongside the sands of the Riviera Maya is the truly intimate Riviera Maya Viceroy. Consisting of 41 villas that all feature private patios, plunge pools and terraces, their locations also range from oceanfront and ocean view to lush jungle gardens. Hidden in a small village of Playa Xcalacoco, there are extensive activities on offer from water sports to spa treatments or explore the area with trips to ancient cities and ruins. Halloween time marks Dia de Muertes (Day of the Dead celebration) where Mexicans remember and honour their deceased loved ones and the belief is that the spirits will return to Earth for one day of the year to be with their families. Although it may sound gloomy this in fact a time of celebration and great festivities and customs to witness.
