Couples Winter Sun
Fancy a romantic trip away with your nearest and dearest? A winter sun holiday could be the way to do something very special, without breaking the bank.
Going out-of-season is always a way to make your money go further. And what could be a more romantic gift than a holiday for two to somewhere really special?
Close your eyes and the chances are that the image which comes to mind when it comes to true romance is somewhere like the Maldives. Especially if it is a luxury villa on stilts over the crystal-clear waters at Paradise Island Resort and Spa Complete with private sun deck, your own pool or Jacuzzi, it’s your little tropical love nest.
Set on the island known as Lankanfinolhu, this is a very tasteful place, and that goes for the eating options too. Choose from easy Italian or exquisite Japanese, and enjoy it over the water too, as the sun goes down on another perfect day.
Fly to Thailand, and get a connection to Bali and more romantic bliss awaits. This time, it’s in a village called Ubud, known as a place where tranquillity meets tradition. With renovations due to be completed shortly, the place to stay is the Ubud Village Hotel. The rooms have their own private garden, and entrance door, with a lovely view of the tropical forest from the second floor.
The Village Hotel has a restaurant where you can look forward to a romantic dinner for two, tasting a blend of traditional Indonesian flavours with contemporary dining. Nearby is a vast choice of alternative places to eat, modern, organic, sitting comfortably on a big pillow in gorgeous gardens, with everything from traditional Balinese seafood to more regular pizzas, burgers and steak.
Entertainment includes the wonders of Balinese Traditional Dance, near to the hotel. More active options include elephant rides and river rafting.
Australia might have a rough and ready image in some ways, but it’s a great idea for romantically-inclined couples in search of some winter sun. After all, the Aussie summertime coincides with our winter blues.
Situated in Sydney, near the city’s historic Rocks and central business district, the Langham Sydney is the kind of hotel that blends modern charm with the real attention-to-detail of a boutique approach.
Described as ‘delightfully intimate’, the Langham has 96 luxurious rooms and suites. If you can tear yourselves away from the ultra-comfortable, superbly-appointed accommodation, the award-winning Galileo Restaurant has all the classic grandeur of a Parisian salon. True romance.
Of course, beyond such a seductive hotel, a great city awaits your exploration. The iconic Opera House and Bridge, Harbour Cruises, the natural beauties of the nearby Blue Mountains, just a tiny taster of a winter sun escape you’ll remember forever, together.
