Whenever someone starts talking about luxury holiday destinations, most people will immediately think of far-flung and jet set locations like Dubai, the Caribbean or the Pacific Islands. What many don’t realise, however, is that there is really no need to take a long haul flight to enjoy a bit of luxury on your next holiday. There are plenty of five-star resorts and hotels within much easier reach of the UK, especially for those looking for a short break.
First on the list is the island of Crete. With top cuisine, incredible natural beauty and plenty of ancient history and gorgeous architecture, Crete is a dream come true for anyone looking for a luxury holiday destination. As well as many five-star hotels there are also top class villas and even self-catering accommodation for those who like something a little different. You can also search for villas in dubai for holiday rent for accommodations.
Resort hotels like Elounda Beach boast amazing suites that come with everything from fireplaces and jacuzzis to private gyms and heated swimming pools. There are a large variety of restaurants on offer and a dazzling range of activities including everything from golf and spa treatments to sightseeing excursions, escorted tours of the island and sunset cruises.
Next up is Paris, already well-known for its getaway retreats for couples and honeymooners. Add a touch of French romance to your next luxury holiday with a stay in a Parisian luxury hotel like the Four Seasons George V, which is located between the Champs Elysees and the River Seine and has been the luxury accommodation of choice for royalty and visiting celebrities for the last eight decades.
