Why You Should Book Your 2023 Holiday Early

When it comes to holidays, we know that planning is everything...

A touch of spontaneity can keep life exciting - throwing caution to the wind and embracing the unexpected. However, when it comes to holidays, we know that planning is everything. Thinking about your luxury getaway early gives you the best possible opportunity of securing your perfect break, tailored to your exact requirements. Take your pick of flights and accommodation before the cheapest seats and rooms with the best views get snapped up, snag a space in an intimate boutique hotel before it's full, and spend plenty of time pondering the ideal excursions to while away your days (don't worry, our amazing Concierge Team can help). And once it's booked, you'll have lots of time to get excited and daydream about everything you'll discover when the time comes to step on that plane...

Luxurious Family Favourite

The idyllic retreat of Bahia del Duque in the Canary Islands is perpetually popular with families seeking the best of Europe's winter sun in ultra-stylish surrounds. Children and teenagers alike will revel in fun-filled activities at the hotel's Mini Club and Teenagers' Lounge, and a choice of family suites and interconnecting rooms allow families to relax in spacious luxury. The whole brood will be captivated by the golden sands of El Duque Beach and the alluringly clear waters beyond its shore, the perfect spot to enjoy the selection of watersports on offer. An unsurpassed wellness offering and exquisite epicurean delights, including Michelin Star cuisine, complete the experience. With its manageable flight time and warm winter temperatures, this sensational resort is always a popular choice for an Autumn or February half-term break, and booking early is highly recommended.

Long-established Luxury

Long-established as a leading luxury holiday destination, Sani Resort in Northern Greece is a true paradise for families. Five alluring hotels nestled within a pristine sandy bay against a backdrop of lush forest and flourishing wetlands each have their own unique character. Ten heavenly swimming pools, 39 outstanding bars and eateries, five spas, a well-equipped sports centre playing host to the renowned Rafa Nadal Tennis Academy and Chelsea Football Academy kids' programmes, and a dazzling marina provide all the entertainment guests might want. With its desirable location right in the heart of it all, Porto Sani is perfectly placed for days to remember.

It goes without saying that Sani is enormously popular and you shouldn't leave it too late to confirm your stay, and with the tempting early bird discounts on offer, there's even more reason to get organized early.

Luxury with Outstanding Leisure Facilities

The breathtaking landscape in Greece's Peloponnese Region is home to world-class luxury and an exceptional leisure offering in the form of Navarino Dunes, consisting of Condé Nast award-winning hotels* The Romanos, A Luxury Collection Resort and The Westin Resort, Costa Navarino. A Spa and Thalassotherapy centre, four challenging golf courses, over 20 eateries, an Aqua-Park, a state-of-the-art tennis centre, a modern Sports and Entertainment centre and an indoor climbing wall complements the array of cultural and recreation activities available within the stunning local environment. The Westin Resort, Costa Navarino is home to the majority of the family facilities and therefore availability over peak times and school holidays soon becomes limited. Similarly, early booking is essential for your pick of the best accommodation, particularly the sought-after suites and ever popular villas at The Romanos, A Luxury Collection Resort.
*The Westin Resort, Costa Navarino and The Romanos, A Luxury Collection Resort were voted winner and runner up for Greece in the Condé Nast Traveller Readers' Choice Awards 2022 in the best resorts in the world category

Holidays make me happy. Feeling the sun on my face on a beautiful beach, exploring city sights or taking in remote views, there's nothing I love more than getting out into the world. I've been lucky enough to spend much of my life visiting interesting places all across the globe and I hope it continues for many more years to come!
