Home to the traditional hammam, Morocco has been perfecting its soaking facilities for centuries. Thanks to the growth of tourism in Marrakech there are now a wide range of luxury hammam style spas here which offer all the expected treatments, plus some of the most opulent and architecturally impressive bathing facilities you’ll ever see. So pack your swimwear and spend a long weekend pampering yourselves and fitting in some market shopping along the way.
Infamous for its riotous parties Ibiza is the number one go to for letting your hair down. However, stereotypes aside, Ibiza really does offer world class nightlife, and for the majority it’s far from tacky. For the more civilised party venues head away from the crowds to chic cocktail bars KM5 or Blue Marlin where you can lounge on outdoor terraces and sip cocktails and dance till you hearts are content. Plus with weather like Ibiza’s you’ve definitely got time to get some sunbathing in too!
It’s the obvious choice for a reason. Whether your favourite tipple is red, white or pink there’s a supremely quaffable bottle of it waiting for you in Tuscany. Opt for a wine tasting tour to really get the most out of your vineyard experience, and then sit back and enjoy the view of beautiful rolling hills while tucking into a feast of bruschetta, pasta, tiramisu and several more bottle of wine. It’s the perfect setting for a much needed catch up.
Glitzy and glamorous, this is the ultimate destination for the more cosmopolitan friendship groups to splash the cash and treat themselves to some retail therapy. From the numerous and vast malls to the traditional souks, there is something for every taste here, and more. Come away with bags full of goodies and necks laden with new gold trinkets. When you finally drop, you’ll be doing it in style at one of Dubai’s many fabulously luxurious hotels.
Sun worshippers beware; you’ll never want to leave. As soon as you step off the plane into Greece the pace slows and the sun renders everything else less important. Don your bikinis and spend a few days dozing on the beach with a good book and a great playlist. As your skin darkens and your hair lightens you’ll find yourselves utterly relaxed and transported back in time to when your cares were few, your responsibilities none and your laughter frequent. Savour every moment.
For the hippy souls among us there is nothing more exciting than a yoga retreat. Unplug from life in a country which has become synonymous with the spiritual and healing benefits of yoga. Stay in Ubud for the ultimate back to nature rainforest experience and, amidst sunrise meditation, mid-morning yoga and afternoon Pilates, enjoy some of Bali’s other synonymous features – massages and deliciously healthy food. You’ll go home a bonded, healthier and happier group.
Lush mountain ranges and picturesque lakes make up the majority of Switzerland’s sweeping landscapes come summer. Hire a chalet in the mountains for a weekend of walking, boating and fresh country air. Then when night settles in, do a spot of star gazing before cooking up a storm of a cheese fondue to gather around. If you’re a group of cheese lovers then an authentic fondue is honestly reason enough to visit – oh and then there’s the chocolate too…
