Last Minute Luxury Holiday Ideas
So long as you’re not fazed by a last-minute rush, making late bookings are a great way to make savings on your holiday. Hotels and resorts hate to see a bed go empty, and are always keen to fill the spaces. By booking last minute you can get a little bit of extra luxury that you might not otherwise have been able to afford. Here are some great last minute luxury holiday ideas from Club Med.
Opio en Provence, France
Why not enjoy a last minute getaway at this 4T (4-star) resort, situated on the Côte d’Azur and nestled among the tranquil olive groves? It’s a perfect place for rest and recuperation with the Club Med Spa by l’Occitane.
For those looking for a more active holiday, there’s plenty for you too. The resort has its own nine-hole golf course and the area is famous for its numerous golf clubs. You can also perfect your racquet skills with the GO® tennis specialists.
Da Balaia, Portugal
Situated on a red cliff with amazing views out over the Atlantic Ocean, it’s a perfect setting on the Algarve’s magnificent rocky coast.
In keeping with the Algarve’s reputation, there’s plenty to help you stay whilst you’re there: volleyball, mini-football, table tennis and even archery. There’s also fitness clubs and a fully equipped gym if you want to work on your stamina.
Surrounded by the Aegean Sea, it’s described on the website as the ‘essence of the Mediterranean’ – and seeing as guests have the choice of a Mediterranean seafront view or a fragrant pinewood location, they can’t be wrong.
Being so close to white sandy beaches and turquoise sea, it gives guests the perfect place to relax. But it’s also perfect for anyone looking for an adrenaline shot, offering water-skiing and even trapeze lessons.
It’s also within easy access of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites at Athens, Delphi and Meteora – so follow in the footsteps of Ulysses and explore.
Sinai Bay, Egypt
If all you want is rest and recuperation, then look no further than Sinai Bay in Egypt.
At Sinai Bay, you’ll have your own half mile stretch of private beach where you can lay under the sun and let the worries of everyday life evaporate.
Take a dip in the sea and dive down among shoals of multi-coloured fish, or play a relaxing game of golf on the resort’s 18-hole course at the foot of the red-hued mountains, then recharge your batteries at the Cinq Mondes Spa.
