Travel Agenda: Amanresorts; New York Restaurant Week; Pegasus Airlines
Saturday 23 January 2010
Today: No need to go all the way to Asia for a taste of Amanresorts. The luxury group has a new spa at The Connaught hotel in Mayfair, London, with treatments borrowed from its resorts in China, Thailand, India and the Americas (the-connaught.co.uk).
This week: New York Restaurant Week gets under way on Monday. The event, which in fact runs for two weeks, brings together 260 restaurants offering discounts and a truck offering gourmet soup around the city (nycgo.com/restaurantweek). On Tuesday, Australia Day – commemorating the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788 – is marked by the specialist operator Austravel. It is offering a giveaway of visas, tours and more for bookings made between 26-30 January (austravel.com). Another luxury London hotel, Grosvenor House, is launching its first Literati Book Club evening on Thursday: veteran journalist Kate Adie, left, will read from and discuss her book Into Danger (marriott.co.uk).
In the diary: From May, the low-cost carrier Pegasus Airlines is launching new direct routes out of the UK to Antalya, Bodrum, left, and Dalaman in Turkey (flypgs.com).
