Luxury yurt accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
It is a wonderful place for a family holiday with small children and a great place to recharge your batteries. (more)Alison Brookes Day
Fabulously relaxing, beautiful island, relaxed yet very responsive hosts. A great experience...Great for kids with donkey rides, missions to collect eggs every day, and to hang out with other kids on the communal trampoline, pirate boat and playground. (more)Michelle Levene
Most memorable were the rural location with an opportunity to see the landscape and vegetation. The space, both our private area around our yurt and outside where the kids were free to play on the trampoline and meet the chickens and donkey. The smallness of the resort and the uncrowded beach. The morning bike ride into the village for bread. (more)Roos Eisma
From 1225 - 1610 per week (sleeps 2-4)
Sri Lanka tour & beach holiday
There were many memorable moments - we loved the incredible bird life especially seeing them close-up in the bird sanctuary. (more)Gabi Tubbs
Leopards in Yala were the most memorable part of the holiday (more)Ann Griffiths
We had a great time, we mixed cultural interest with wildlife experience and finished up with a beach flop...The jeep safari to see the elephants in the wild was the most exciting part of the holiday. (more)Elayne Farmer
From 1995 including UK flights
Komodo Dragon ecolodge in Flores
Memorable parts? The boat trip that the Eco Lodge organised to Rinca and Komodo Island was really lovely. The food was amazing (how he did that magic in a boat is beyond me) and the snorkelling was easily the best I've ever done - we saw Turtles, Rays, Scorpion Fish, beautiful coral and a whole host of gorgeous sea life. Our guide was really friendly and helpful, just like it said on his shirt! The staff organising my booking and taking care of things at the lodge are all unendingly solicitous.... (more)Jessica Southworth
From US $90 per double room per night
Kenya beach resort on Manda Island
It was just incredible- I honestly, honestly mean that and I can be very hard to please! I will never forget it and have come home feeling more rested and content than I have ever been before. It was the best start to married life for us we could have possibly had. (more)Aoibheann Kelly
It was all memorable. We pretty much had the whole island to ourselves, total tranquility and relaxation. Rachael and the staff made the whole holiday unforgettable...10 out of 10. We have come back feeling completely relaxed. (more)Katherine Ford
The most memorable part was our trip to mandatoto - a full day out on a dhow... a great day full of humour, with fantastic snorkelling and brilliant food (they caught a barracuda, marinated it and cooked it over charcoal on the boat) (more)Anna Bradley
From 80 per accommodation per night (sleeps 2)
Thailand holiday, culture and beach
Memorable parts? The elephant trekking in Chiang Mai. We were a bit apprehensive before we went having heard/read about how many of the elephants were treated before we left. However, the elephant appeared to be well cared for and it was an experience we will never forget (even if our thighs were quite sore afterwards). Tips? Check where about you are staying during the beach part of the holiday. We stayed at the Beyond Resort which was located in a nice quite part of Krabi. This... (more)Claire Shaw
From 1249 excluding flights
Gambia holiday accommodation
A most relaxing, refreshing break and a perfect destination for some winter sunshine! (more)Deborah Lake-Daltrey
The most memorable part was walking up the path and entering the lodge...the lovely flowers surrounding the gate, the relaxing seated area, the birds singing - it reduced me to tears of happiness. (more)Debbie Bradley
The most memorable part...The fabulous fresh water pool at the Lodge that attracted many amazing birds plus the wonderful dawn chorus of birds every morning. (more)Jennifer Ann Rousseau
From 30 - 60 per person per night incl breakfast
Cyprus self catering accommodation in Kalavassos
Travelling across the green line to visit Ancient Salamis. Kalavassos is a good base to see the island. (more)Shabna Harridge
Great weather; great scenery. (more)Sally Keohane
Enjoyable, interesting, you get to know the culture, the habits, the history of the place. (more)Zahal Levy
From 48 - 120 per apartment per night
Siolim hotel in Goa, India
This accommodation is a visually beautiful Portuguese villa, traditionally furnished in Portuguese style with enormous, high-ceilinged rooms in lush, well-kept gardens. It is perfect for anybody who is happy to make their own enjoyment. (more)Tony Lee
All employed staff come from the village and demonstrate competence, attention and kindness. The cuisine is particularly excellent and served in generous portions, fresh from the market or their garden. (more)Fabienne Beloeil-Smith
Lovely hotel, beautifully restored, friendly staff, quiet location away from the tourist hotspots. Perfect place to lay about and do nothing...We enjoyed our week and were glad to relax after our tour. (more)Kathleen Cannings
From Rupee2500 - Rupee14000 per room per night
Limassol self catering accommodation in Cyprus
Memorable parts? The tranquil position of our accommodation at Kontoyiannas House in Kalavasos. Set within a pleasant & friendly village in the valley and only minutes drive from one of the loveliest beaches we discovered in Cyprus. Tips? To make the most of the self-catering accommodation including the bbq since the variety of menus in the island's taverns & restaurants is generally very limited. Kontoyiannas House would also be great to rent for a group of families - using all... (more)Nicole Mouton
From 48 - 100 per apartment per night
Christmas & New Years Cuba tour
Memorable parts? New Years Eve Party Tips? Expect very basic accomodation (too basic) Local benefits? I suppose it may have but with the present regime there it is difficult to see how that would work. Overall rating? 100% for Tour Guide, Coach and Driver. Everything else on a decresing scale. Leave out the Santa Clara/Remidious Festival. (more)Gerry Kennedy
From US $975 excluding flights
Thailand holiday resort in Chanthaburi
We have had a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful time and have enjoyed exploring the local area and swimming in the pool. This was the perfect place for us to stay and we have been made really welcome, almost like a homestay but with our own bungalow and separate meals. (more)Anna Hughes Corden
I left having had a superb chill in a place of beauty and tranquility in which I constantly felt was special and giving (more)Martin Ruddock
From Baht1360 per villa per night (sleeps 2)
Thailand beach resort
Memorable parts? Walking on a completely empty long golden beach. Watching the monsoon rains from our windows. Kayaking in the mangrove swamp and watching the monkeys. Tips? If you book in October you may get only rain and not see the sun (we quite enjoyed the rain but some people might not.) Local benefits? Yes, the resort is very sensitive to ecological issues and they are constantly working to find the best ways to dispose of rubbish, generate power etc. They seem to have... (more)Tessa Watt
From 75 - 150 per person per night
Polis, Cyprus villa & hotel accommodation
This has been the 3rd visit to this hotel. Definitely will return. A*. (more)Mike Biggs
Watching the sunset from the terrace of my room. Excellent view, great location., good local food. (more)Georgina Alexander
Excellent. A really relaxing break - I hope to make a return trip. Very encouraging to see a smaller-scale family hotel; well-organised, clean, comfortable, friendly and beautiful, with a positive impact on its local environment. (more)Judy Powell
From 70 - 115 per double room per night
