In-Town Check-In

Hordes of people pushing to get through to the ticket machine, everyone’s luggage sailing around the carousel except yours, chronic neck pain, puffy red eyes and lackluster skin due to one too many long haul flights and endless jet lag? Check out. Relaxing on a cushioned day-bed by a glam rooftop pool with killer views, getting cosy in one of the world’s best hotel rooms complete with 600-thread count sheets and a bath you could get lost in, toned limbs, glowing cheeks and sparkling eyes after a few hours of well-deserved spa indulgence. Check in. For the most fun, chilled-out summer getaways, look no further than the shores of our very own gorgeous tropical island and peninsula. Pull out your tote bag, put on some shades, throw in your bikini and a page-turning novel, and get ready for the most relaxing weekend you’ve had all summer. . .
