Where will the pages take you?

Whether it's to keep you occupied on a long flight or to amplify that sense of escapism as you lounge by the pool - holiday reads have become an essential element in the recipe of relaxing getaways. Pairing must-reads with must-visits, these are four books that you can take on one holiday to inspire your next.

Two Women in Rome


Two Bed Mellini Suite Terrace
A story driven by intrigue and understanding, Two Women in Rome is historical-fiction that brings new meaning to Rome's nickname of the 'Eternal City'. With vivid depictions of Italy's sun-drenched capital, and a dual perspective of Rome across two time periods, this evocative read will stir your wanderlust. Discover Rome's history and heritage yourself with a stay at Six Senses Rome: just steps away from this historic city's iconic sites.

The Island


Set on the UNESCO-listed island of Spinalonga, this captivating tale portrays the warmth and charm of Crete and its people. Join Alexis Fielding on her search to uncover her family history, which leads to her discovering an intimate connection with the island. Looking out over this enchanting location and perfect for a quintessentially Cretan escape is Blue Palace, a Luxury Collection Resort, Elounda. With earthy-neutral interiors and olive trees, as well as the sparkling blue seafront, this resort offers an authentic luxury beach experience inspired by The Island.

Don't Shake The Mango Tree


Honeymoon Dome
Filled with heart and humour, Don't Shake The Mango Tree follows Graeme and Candy's midlife shake up with a move to Tanzania. In a rash decision, they agreed to manage a luxury safari lodge, and their lives have been filled with eccentric escapades and a submersion into the local culture ever since. Having fallen in love with Africa, their book invites you to do the same; head to The Highlands for a unique perspective of Tanzania's Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Run Rose Run


With two legends like these behind the pages, it would be almost impossible not to be hooked by Run Rose Run. Based in Nashville, this enthralling thriller is rich in soul and suspense, following aspiring star AnnieLee as she tries to make it in the 'Capital of Country Music'. Having seen the likes of Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline as guests, The Hermitage Hotel is the perfect retreat for anyone looking to visit America's musical heartland.
