Quintessentially Travel suggests the top five destinations and hotels to flee to this summer.
Soak up the sun this summer by lying on a beach and take in the beauty of a private paradise at the exclusive North Island Resort. Amongst the largest of the villas in the Indian Ocean they boast expansive and uncluttered indoor and outdoor living space, a private plunge pool and dedicated butler service. Dining is also a personalised experience here from enjoying a gourmet picnic on the beach to relaxing outside the wine cellar.
This place is perfect for honeymooners where one can cuddle up with a loved one, a bottle of champagne and chocolate truffles and enjoy a movie night in the comfort of that private villa. Travelling with kids? Well then grab a family film selection and some popcorn for a fun night in.
Journey onto the plains of South Africa and stay at the stunning Singita Sabi Sand, the ultimate in safari luxury and prime area to view the “Big Five” in their natural habitat. Their two magnificent lodges overlook the Sand River, each with private pool and game viewing deck, spacious interiors, fireplace, en-suite bathroom and inside and outside shower. There are also gym and health spa facilities to use between game drives and authentic Boma dinners and guided tastings of premium South African wines to enjoy with a partner.
Perched within the hills of Fiesole with spectacular views of Florence and the Tuscan hillside, this 15th century villa has been completely restored to its original splendor. Located just 10 minutes outside Florence city centre, this beautiful property offers the perfect balance between traditional and modern. It boasts spectacular Italian gardens, restored to their original beauty; a fine dining restaurant, Grappolo, which captures the true essence of Italian cuisine and is a haven for gourmet enthusiasts.
The Oberoi has made its mark on the landscape of Bali, sitting across 15 acres of beautiful beach. With rooms decorated in the traditional culture and a state of the art spa, anyone will feel like they have walked into paradise, leaving one invigorated by the experience. Ever tried Bamboo? The Bamboo Signature cocktail made from Bacardi, gin, triple sec and tropical fruit juice also fits perfectly with the surroundings as the sun goes down.
The perfect escape from the usual family routine is Abama Golf resort & Spa, family friendly and also great options just for mum and dad. There are endless dining options from Michelin Star fine dining at M.B, a relaxed lunch at the ocean-front Beach Club or even a romantic meal at the outdoor terrace of El Mirador to watch the sunset over a fresh seafood dinner.
If you quickly tire of sun-bathing at the ocean-front Beach Club on the secluded golden sand beach, then don’t worry as there’s plenty to keep the family occupied from a golf academy, a tennis academy, nine swimming pool and a kid’s club. For parents who need to be pampered there is also Abama Spa and activities such as cooking authentic paella or wine tasting lessons at the weekly gourmet workshops.
