Six of the Best: Tented Camps

  • Oman
  • Slovenia
  • India
  • Canada
  • Tanzania
  • Thailand

Camping: one of the most divisive words in the travel lexicon. So often associated with cramped tents, dodgy Trangias and the vague whiff of wet dog. The irony is that some of the most luxurious and unique hotels in the world are tented camps; think large canopies, quirky furniture, spacious…

  • Greece
  • Indonesia
  • Mexico
  • Tanzania
  • Oman
  • Maldives

January is a month generally associated with New Year blues, dark days and distinctly British weather. That is to say it's not necessarily a favourite. In fact one of the only things it is good for is planning your getaways for the year ahead, and that's where we come in. Whether it's…

  • Maldives
  • Oman
  • Bangkok
  • Bhutan
  • Caribbean

Talk of Christmas already?! Well, it is just 91 short days away. That's a mere 2184 hours to go before we all start gleefully ripping open our presents, over-indulging on the turkey (and possibly the bubbly) and falling asleep in front of the telly, paper crown on head and drooling on our…

Loafing Abroad: The Best Luxury Hotels in the World

  • Estonia
  • Maldives
  • France
  • Oman
