Looking for a half term holiday? Looking for a short city break? Quintessentially Travel names the top 5 luxury hotels to journey to this autumn.
There is no beating the beauty of Paris this autumn. Wrap up warm and stroll along the Seine, start your Christmas shopping in the city's chic boutiques and venture to the Eiffel Tower for dinner, admiring the views of this historic city. Nestled in the 16th arrondissment of Paris is the stylish Shangri-La hotel which has stunning views of the Seine and the Eiffel Tower. After a day in the capital the experience continues at the hotel from savouring the delicate tastes of French cuisine at L’Abeille or swimming in the largest indoor swimming pool with natural day-light in Paris.
From its fabulous views across the city and its enchanting castle, Edinburgh is not a city that should be missed. Feeling flush? Stay at the Balmoral, a beautiful boutique hotel located on Princes Street in Edinburgh’s main shopping area. The hotel also has a Michelin-starred fine dining restaurant with outstanding cuisine from Chef Jeff Blend and the Palm Court for traditional afternoon tea. After a long day visiting the Edinburgh attractions, leave the bustling city behind you and relax at the Balmoral Spa.
If you want some winter sun rather than a crisp winter break in the country, head to Dubai for a fast-paced holiday of flashy hotels, sizzling sun and poolside fun with the family. The magnificent Madinat Jumeriah Resort combines traditional Arabian style and comfort. Dining here is a real treat with over 40 restaurants and bars, including the fresh seafood of award-winning Pierchic and the Friday Brunch by the waterside with a glass of champagne. Want to charter a yacht or go water skiing? There is also two kilometres of private beach to enjoy while the kids are at Sinbad’s Kids Club.
For crispy country walks and cosy pubs country lovers will adore Chewton Glen in Hampshire. Set in 130 acres of countryside is Chewton Glen, a luxury country house hotel and spa, has a varied range of food and drink options all offering wonderful dining in beautiful surroundings using only the finest local produce from the New Forest and Hampshire. The hotel and the area are full of activities to do. Why not walk the beautiful grounds around the hotel, improve that tennis game at both indoor and outdoor tennis courts or brave the outdoor swimming pool? For adventure seekers there is also clay pigeon shooting, horse riding and off-road driving nearby,
Being a destination where Beyoncé and Jay-Z holidayed two years ago, Dubrovnik has become increasingly popular. Set on the Adriatic Sea, the small Croatian town is bustling, lively, and populated by a host of lovely restaurants, bars and shops, which have all sprung up in recent years. Stay in the Excelsior Hotel and Spa, just steps away from the old city and known for its personal touch and flawless service. The resort boasts 158 rooms and suites, all with stunning views, and there are activities for everyone from going on an Adventure Jeep Safari to horseback riding.
