You are a… Lounger Lizard

The sand between your toes, the cocktail between your fingers, heaven…

Try these on for size...



Shop the souqs and the malls, stay in a luxury hotel and enjoy water sports and a desert safari.

Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi

With an almost guaranteed 300 days of sunshine a year, Abu Dhabi is the ideal winter break destination.



Original Travel knows the region well, and can recommend the highlights from the best bars in Havana to the best dive sites in the British Virgin Islands, and everything in between.

Cuba Beaches

Cuba Beaches

With the title of the Caribbean's largest island, you'd expect Cuban beaches to follow the lead of its smaller Carib neighbours, and thankfully they do. Varadero is home to a number of white sandy beaches, and just 100 miles east of Havana, it makes an ideal combination with the capital.

Clifftop coastline

The Algarve

For those wanting to stay poolside, the Algarve that we know and love couldn’t be more perfect, but for those looking for something a bit different, there are a couple of undiscovered spots to be found off the beaten track.

Lavender Fields

Provence & the Cote D'Azur

Brigitte Bardot first popularised the bikini on the beaches of the Cote d'Azur, and close by but a world away, Van Gogh and Cézanne drew inspiration from the landscapes of Provence inland.

Yucatan Peninsula

Yucatan Peninsula

A holiday in its own right, Mexico's southern tip combines Mayan archaeological sites with Caribbean beaches.

Rio Carnival Floats

Rio, Buzios & the Costa Verde

Rio de Janeiro has perhaps the most stunning physical setting of any city in the world, with the legendary beachfront neighbourhoods of Copacabana and Ipanema the city’s most famous districts.



The tropical idyll of Bali offers superb watersports, landscapes, hotels and culture for a varied luxury holiday.

The Gardens of a Muscat Mosque


The Omani capital is home to some of the most luxurious hotels in the Middle East.



Crescent-shaped Santorini is perhaps the most famous Greek island, and physically one of the most spectacular islands in the world, with its giant sea-filled caldera created by an ancient volcanic eruption.
