Saturday 01 March 2014
Turquoise Holidays has a shoulder-season week at the five-star Colony Club in Barbados for £1,379pp including flights from Gatwick on British Airways and transfers. The price includes breakfast and access to the resort’s tennis courts, spa and watersports. You must travel between 22 April and 31 May, when the temperature is likely to be in the high 20Cs, though there’s chance of an afternoon shower (turquoiseholidays.co.uk).
If you can travel before 15 March, there’s a week in Mauritius for £1,215pp with Western & Oriental. The holiday includes a stay at Outrigger Resort and Spa, on the south coast in Bel Ombre, where all rooms face the Indian Ocean, with their own private balcony or garden. Full board and transfers are included, as are flights – but they involve a change of plane: Air France from Heathrow via Paris (westernoriental.com).
For a spot of R&R, consider a trip to Thailand with The Healthy Holiday Company, which has a week at Aava Resort & Spa in Khanom for £1,150pp in March. The package includes B&B in a poolside villa, Thai Airways flights from Heathrow to Surat Thani via Bangkok and transfers. The resort offers a spa with free yoga and pilates classes (thehealthyholidaycompany.co.uk).
Until 31 March, the Mighty Fine Company is offering trips to Alta in northern Norway, with a Northern Lights tour and a stay in an igloo hotel, for £1,074pp. The four-day holiday includes B&B at the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel and the Rica Hotel, with an aurora tour and SAS flights from Heathrow (mightyfinecompany.com).
