I promise to spend more time together...

Have you missed hearing "are we there yet?" and seeing the excitement in little ones' eyes? Time together has never been so precious, so we need to make family travel extra special. Luckily, extra special is just what both Elegant Resorts and One&Only excel at..

One&Only Royal Mirage, Arabian Court, Dubai

Regal-inspired indulgence and relaxation cleverly combine to create this luxury hideaway, one of three distinct hotels within the Royal Mirage resort, set amongst luxuriant gardens. Based in the vibrant heart of New Dubai, this Arabian retreat provides easy access to the destination's fabulous, family-friendly attractions. Water babies will delight in the slides, rides and rapids at nearby Aquaventure Waterpark, while world-renowned Dubai Mall is home to an aquarium, ice rink, VR park and more! Out of the city, Arabian-inspired adventures include camel riding and desert camping, while back at the resort, the incredible KidsOnly club offers various locally-inspired activities for little ones - from henna painting to sand sculpting - while the one-kilometre-long private beach promises hours of family fun beneath the Dubai sun.

One&Only Le Saint Géran, Mauritius

Surrounded by powder-soft white sands, emerald green flora and the endless blue hues of the Indian Ocean, it's unsurprising so many are tempted by this totally tropical resort. Set on its own peninsula, you can look forward to plenty of space and utmost seclusion, while for all things active, ClubOne is an action-packed hub where you can choose from an array of activities for all ages - including a fabulous fitness centre, mini golf, a football field and a range of watersports in the beautiful blue lagoon. This is also where you'll find the top-class KidsOnly club and OneTribe teen hangout, where educational experiences range from supervised snorkelling to barbecues on the beach. Head away from the resort on private boat trips and waterfall climbs, or enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime helicopter ride over magical Mauritius.

One&Only Cape Town, South Africa

Spend quality time in South Africa at this exceptional city hideaway, set in the heart of the bustling Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. While little ones enjoy the complimentary KidsOnly club and teens indulge with dedicated activities throughout the resort, adults can take advantage of the fabulous spa located on its own private island or sample world-class local labels in the tri-level wine loft. Family dinners can be enjoyed in one of the three eateries here, including the continent's only Nobu restaurant! The hotel is also the ideal base to discover the many family-friendly attractions of the Western Cape; take a cable car up the legendary Table Mountain, hike amongst the flora and fauna, cycle through stunning winelands and visit the super-cute African penguins at Boulders Beach.

I promise to be kind to myself.

If you've found the last few months hard on both your physical and mental health, make some time for yourself as you completely disconnect from the everyday at these serene sanctuaries from One&Only...

One&Only Reethi Rah, Maldives

Located in the North Malé Atoll, this alluring island hideaway is encircled by six kilometres of powder-soft white sands, lapped by turquoise waters mottled with colourful fish-filled reefs. While deep sea adventures and culinary experiences await here, pure relaxation is often the highlight for many visitors. The simply superb, award-winning spa is a haven of quiet pampering nestled amongst secluded lush tropical gardens overlooking the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Harnessing rejuvenating therapies from East to West, the expert One&Only Spa therapists will guide you on a wellness journey, combining ancient therapeutic rituals with modern day research. Along with a treatment list to rival any other, you can look forward to personalised retreat programmes, renowned visiting practitioners, state-of-the-art fitness facilities and delicious, nutritious menus.

One&Only Portonovi, Montenegro

Seek serenity a little closer to home, at the brand-new One&Only Portonovi, the group's first European hotel, set between towering limestone mountains tumbling down to amazing royal-blue waters. At the hottest new Adriatic address, the cutting-edge Chenot Espace concept spa brings a multi-dimensional wellness experience to the shores of Montenegro. The stunning wellness centre offers revolutionary treatments, therapies and detoxifying rituals that combine traditional Chinese medicine with western technology. Tailored Chenot Method® programmes are immersive and holistic, including nutritional menus, fitness schedules, al fresco yoga, targeted therapies and a range of wellness activities.

I promise to make unforgettable memories.

Whether you're planning the perfect proposal or toasting to many years of marriage, relish undisturbed romance in a dreamy destination...

One&Only The Palm, Dubai

Offering utter seclusion on the golden Palm Jumeirah shores, this intimate beachfront hotel exceeds every expectation for a romantic retreat, offering a diverse selection of splendid amenities, complemented by some good old Arabian hospitality. Secluded spots to unwind together include plush pool cabanas and the seriously special Guerlain Spa. The only spa of its kind in the UAE, it houses an Oriental Suite that has been designed to share with someone special, offering free-standing oval bathtubs, a private steam room, hammam and exclusive garden terrace. Savour world-class dining overseen by three Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno - whether you fancy fine French cuisine or Middle Eastern flavours - or head into the epic golden desert of Dubai for a sunset view to savour.

One&Only Royal Mirage, Residence & Spa, Dubai

Another of the three hotels at One&Only Royal Mirage, the intimate tropical surroundings and private pool of the Residence & Spa perfectly suit those seeking tranquillity and uninterrupted time together. Treatments designed for two can be enjoyed at the One&Only Spa, while for laid-back lunches or cocktails backed by the beats of a DJ, couples can't miss the ultra-cool, adults-only DRIFT beach club. Surprise your loved one with an exquisite private dining experience, palms overhead and waves lapping at your feet, or if you prefer a faster pace, embrace exhilarating experiences nearby - including dune bashing and sand surfing.

One&Only Palmilla, Mexico

Over in magical Mexico, dreamy days filled with romance await at One&Only Palmilla, whether you're seeking sheer relaxation or high adrenaline activities. Spot whales as you cruise along the Los Cabos coastline by luxury private yacht, Champagne in hand of course, or hop into kayaks and head over to the insanely romantic Lover's Beach... never has a name been more apt! If you fancy a tipple, tequila tasting is a great way to capture the spirit (literally) of Mexico, while the local marine life is best seen on a snorkelling trip for two. For romantic relaxation, lounge together atop a floating bed suspended above the soft white sands or experience the ancient healing traditions of Mexico with a couples' ritual at the garden-shrouded spa.

I promise to be more adventurous.

With a year spent in lockdown and a wealth of worldwide experiences to uncover, we can't afford to waste any more time. That's why One&Only combine superlative luxury with truly remarkable adventures...

One&Only Nyungwe House and One&Only Gorilla's Nest, Rwanda

For serious bucket-list-ticking adventures in Rwanda, surrounded by tea fields and ancient rainforest, One&Only Nyungwe House blends seamlessly into the landscape of the Nyungwe Forest National Park. Each aspect of the property celebrates Rwanda's nature and heritage - from an infinity pool overlooking the lush valley and daily ceremonies in the Tea Lounge, to indigenous Rwandan artwork throughout and holistic spa therapies using local plants. The choice of activities here is infinite. You can spot chimpanzees in their natural habitat on an expert-led trek, enjoy birdwatching amid the forest, or give back to the community by helping to build schools or purchasing charming handmade objects from local villagers.

Also in Rwanda and the perfect pairing with Nyungwe House, One&Only Gorilla's Nest invites you to discover the delights of the country's famed Volcanoes National Park. This densely forested area is home to around 300 majestic mountain gorillas, an elusive and endangered species with which humans share around 98% of their DNA! Head out with an expert local tracker in search of a family of these incredible animals, enjoying a once-in-a-lifetime wildlife experience. Other activities on offer include trekking to the tomb of American activist Dian Fossey, ascending Mount Bisoke, or visiting a 'living museum' that invites you to experience the traditions of Rwanda alongside locals.

Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, Australia

Return to life's simple pleasures amid Australia's UNESCO-listed Greater Blue Mountains at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley. Inspired by an authentic Aussie homestead and set within over 7,000 acres, there is no shortage of space here - something that's more important than ever these days. The resort offers a seemingly endless choice of alfresco pursuits. You may choose to ride on horseback through the native woodland (the resort is home to stables full of calm horses), mountain bike across rising escarpments, hop in a 4WD for a tour of the surrounding mountains, or join a stargazing session beneath the captivatingly clear night sky. There is also a huge focus on conservation here; ingredients are sourced from the resort's own 1832 Heritage Garden, while complimentary conservation sessions invite all ages to make a hands-on contribution to the restoration of the reserve - from tree planting to wombat surveys.

One&Only Mandarina, Mexico

Having opened its doors in late 2020, this sustainably designed Mexican retreat has also joined the exclusive One&Only portfolio. It blends beautifully into the undeveloped coastal rainforest of the Riveria Nayarit and is made up solely of standalone treehouses and cliffside villas, each one with a private pool deck. As well as plenty of relaxation and top-class luxury, the resort offers a wealth of astonishing adventures. Zipline through the trees, visit the nearby Mandarina Polo & Equestrian Club, or explore miles of nature trails on foot, bicycle or horseback. Choose from several sea-faring adventures and discover the delights of the Pacific Ocean - including sailing, surfing, paddle boarding, whale watching and fishing with local legends - or kayak up the estuary that winds through the landscape, home to unique wildlife and hundreds of migrating bird species.

From driving along the sun-kissed California coast and whale watching in Canada, to swimming with turtles in Barbados, cookery classes in Oman and touring temples in Thailand, I've enjoyed some amazing experiences around the world. With a genuine love for all things travel, I can't think of anything I'd rather do than research, experience and share incredible destinations, luxury hotels and bespoke adventures.
