Pack your bags and embark on an unforgettable journey to these idyllic destinations for some much-needed rest and rejuvenation. Get ready for a fantastic experience!


    When the island’s philosophy is ‘No news, no shoes’ you know you’re onto a mini-break winner! At Gili Lankanfushi guests are encouraged to leave their footwear on the boat, their technology at home, and to totally embrace the stress-free nature of paradise. Forget play-dates and school homework, here relaxation is on the agenda. Settle in to one of the 45 sumptuous over-water villas crafted from natural materials with roof-top and over-water sundecks, open air bathrooms, and gorgeous daybeds. In fact, the only thing you’ll need to put on your schedule during your stay will be dolphin-spotting, spa massages, and sunset cruises.


    Juxtaposed against blue skies and rolling greenery stand the bright white blocks of Alila Villas Uluwatu’s reception, restaurants and spa, set amongst jigsaw paths and water gardens. Minimalism and pure calm come together as the hotel’s 30 private villas are stunning in their simplicity, all creamy walls, clean lines and vast windows, softened with giant day beds and poppy batik cushions. Bathrooms showcase luxuriously deep tubs. When you think it can’t get better, each villa comes with its own butler, swimming pool and alluring sunbathing cabana. Think peace. Think quiet. Think you-time, just for a couple of days.


    If you’d like your escape to come with a slice of culture, hotfoot it to beautiful Phum Baitang. All rooms boast private terraces or plunge pools and elegant interiors where the likes of carved-wood headboards and freestanding wooden baths blend seamlessly with local market antique finds. An ancient farmhouse on the property has been converted into an inviting cocktail lounge, reminiscent of Cambodia’s golden days. Other amenities include two restaurants serving organic ingredients, a stunning spa, a yoga pavilion, and a fabulous infinity pool. Best of all, you’ll get to temple-visit without your little ones complaining. Bliss!

  • BALI: Indonesia

    Nestled amidst lush landscaped gardens with captivating views of the Tjampuhan Valley, COMO Uma Ubud is a luxurious inland retreat on the outskirts of Bali's cultural capital. This exquisite hideaway offers a blend of traditional Indonesian village charm and contemporary Asian design in its 46 rooms, suites, and villas. With light and airy interiors, large bathtubs overlooking the gardens, and inviting daybeds on terraces or courtyards, the accommodations provide a serene setting, some even boasting private pools. Indulge in the diverse culinary offerings at Kemiri, serving contemporary Indonesian cuisine, or Uma Cucina, offering an Italian-inspired menu. Engage in a range of activities, from cultural tours and temple visits to hiking, birdwatching, and thrilling adventures like rafting and ATV rides. Unwind at the spa or learn the art of Indonesian cooking during your stay at this idyllic retreat, where culture, relaxation, and holistic well-being seamlessly blend into a remarkable experience.


    The romantically remote island of Pamalican caters for couples who want to laze their days away, but like a little activity on the side. The epitome of rustic chic, Amanpulo has 40 casitas, designed as modern versions of a traditional Filipino house, with wooden floors, rattan furniture and subtle interiors. When you’re not making the most of the four dining options and gym, you can try the likes of hiking, kayaking, tennis and windsurfing. Or you could just lie horizontally under a shady palm tree with a good book and no interruptions whatsoever.

  • UPPER HOUSE: Hong Kong

    For a speedy staycation where your children won’t find you, make Upper House Hong Kong your hideaway. Poised on top of Pacific Place, upon arrival, it feels like you’re being transported into a secret world. Guests glide in via an escalator, then a lift, into an enclave of wood, glass, and limestone. And once inside, it’s big: at 730 sq. ft, rooms are some of the largest in the city, and at such a height they offer awesome views. There’s one restaurant, an all-day Sky Lounge, and The Lawn on the 6th floor for alfresco cocktails. There’s no pool, no spa, and only a tiny gym, so you have to head out for additional entertainment, but when immersed in such luxury, we won’t judge you if you’d rather stay put.
