News / Make mine a… grown-up getaway

Here’s one for you, the sophisticated, the cultural, the adventurous grown-ups.

We’re on our second month of 2020 and have you really had some me time yet? No children in tow, no Monday morning blues and no limitations of schedules?

Thought not, so while you’re here, let us tempt and excite that inner travel bug with our breakdown of the getaways that should be on the menu.

The new kid on the block (…kind of)

This antiquated favourite has had the revamp of a lifetime, so while long-standing guests will still feel at home in its walls, a fresher take on décor has brought Domes Zeen Chania into 2020. With earthy, raw tones throughout and a new restaurant to boot, the sophisticated barefoot vibe welcomes both the loyal returners and a new generation to the ancient streets of Chania.

Domes Zeen Chania

The historic gem

Why of course you can stay in a romantic Italian palace, sitting gracefully beside one of the most renowned lakes in the world. Family owned and catering to the need of every guest for the past century, Grand Hotel Tremezzo may have all of the amenities of modern day, but step over the threshold and the decadence and luxury of the Belle Epoque era is alive and well. 

Grand Hotel Tremezzo

The classic beach and all-time favourite

A table in the restaurant is always free for Sunday Brunch, the glasses never stand empty and a beach butler is never far away from your lounger. Staying at Sandy Lane, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were the only guest here, but no, the service is just that impeccable. In this Barbadian institute, you are the most important person on the premises.

Sandy Lane

The natural countryside with all the luxuries

A tranquil middle-of-nowhere retreat, but we’re not talking limited resources and no Wi-Fi. Park Hyatt Mallorca’s Michelin starred restaurants bring national and international cuisine to the sticks in Balearic, VORO, and Asia; while electric bikes and vespas are on hand for a dose of civilisation in the surrounding villages or to go deeper into the wilds of the Mallorquin countryside.

The country club on water

Move over Soho Farmhouse, we’ve heard that cruising is the new member’s club. With four of the smallest ships in the luxury sector, Oceania’s decks have an intimate ambience with a dash of casual-cool to compliment, making it the perfect recipe for exclusivity at sea. Oh, and if you must indulge in a recreational activity, may we suggest a spot of painting in the Artist Loft?
