Pure Portuguese Heaven

With its Atlantic seaboard, strong culture, beautiful terrain and warm hospitality, you’ll want to spend some of your year relaxing and playing in Portugal. Come with us as we crest the Pyrenees in search of the most alluring destinations…

Herdade da Malhadinha Nova

Located within an easy drive from Faro, in the middle of the beautiful Alentejo region and being one of Portugal’s best kept secrets, we think this one is a winner if you crave laid-back luxury – and it’s ideal for couples and families alike. There’s the option to simply relax by the pool, enjoy a treatment in the spa and being a Relais & Chateaux property, you know that the food and wine is going to be exquisite! If you’re looking for something more active, there is so much to do, from simply exploring the estate to horse-riding, archery, paintball, karting, hot air ballooning, quad-biking and tons of absorbing activities, designing and making things.  This charming, rural location pretty much guarantees a break from the noises and duties of everyday life back home.

Virtuoso travellers receive:

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
  • Daily breakfast for up to two guests per bedroom, served in Hotel Restaurant
  • A complimentary 50-minute massage for up to two people, per room, once during stay

Conrad Algarve

A luxury hotel on a grand scale; you just know everything you want will be taken care of in sumptuous style. Conrad Algarve is situated in Quinta do Lago, a breathtaking resort close to the idyllic Ria Formosa Nature Park and Atlantic coastline. The spa is excellent and so is the choice of sustenance, which includes a Michelin-starred restaurant right here – Gusto by Heinz Beck – among the six eateries and bars. Activities on offer range from the gentle, such as olive oil-tasting and clam picking, to the exhilarating sea-spray of private catamarans.

Virtuoso travellers receive:

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
  • Daily Breakfast for up to two guests per bedroom
  • $100 USD equivalent Food & Beverage credit utilized during stay

Vila Vita Parc

There’s no shortage of things to do here, all in an environment of five-star decadence. The pools, private beach and gardens are beautiful, and the wellness and beauty facilities exceptional. There’s also plenty to explore nearby in terms of history and culture, but if you just want to idle your holiday days between holding a tennis racquet one moment and a cocktail the next then no worries; you deserve it. And kids of all ages won’t see you for (chalk) dust because they’ll be enjoying themselves in the crèche, kids’ park or sport-filled teens’ club. Two Michelin-starred restaurants make every evening a gastronomic indulgence.

Virtuoso travellers receive:

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
  • Daily Breakfast for up to two guests per bedroom

Six Senses Douro Valley

With rooms for just 57 guests on an old-established wine estate, this hotel is in a UNESCO World Heritage-listed corner of the country 77 miles’ drive from Oporto. If you know your vino then you won’t be in a hurry to leave, as there’s a glorious wine library of 350 vintages to sample, with deli delights to pick at and dinners based around brilliant food-and-wine pairings. Meanwhile, for a different kind of body temple, the spa with indoor pool and treatment rooms is superb. Cycling, kayaking, hiking, helicopter tours and ceramics decorating are all on offer; but back to the wine… the wine-and-dine Douro River cruises are a unique feature.

Virtuoso travellers receive:

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
  • Daily Breakfast for up to two guests per bedroom

Quinta da Comporta

An understated boutique retreat, blending into the beautiful surroundings of the unspoilt Atlantic coastline. And, since it picked up a Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Award in 2021, independently verified as well up to expectations. This lovely place has a particular air of authenticity, clear in the three-bedroom pool villas inspired by the architectural lines of Comporta’s traditional bungalows. They’re built for slow-living relaxation. Seasonal dishes with the best natural ingredients are how you’ll eat here, with vegetables from the garden used in inspired, simple cooking. The 40m pool is solar-heated, while two rustic, barn-like buildings house Oryza Spa and Mar D’Arrozal restaurant.

Grand House Algarve

The stunning Grand House will give you, in its own words, a taste of ‘Authenticity, Simplicity and Soul’ in Vila Real de Santo António, the most easterly town on the Algarve. There are 30 sun-drenched rooms and suites, all of which have decor that pays homage to the natural richness of the surroundings. You’re transported to an opulent yet unpretentious way of life, boasting a prime waterfront position that’s well away from the hoi-polloi. In fact, if the tranquillity of bird-watching is your thing, you’re going to love the location at the mouth of the river Guadiana and the natural wetland reserves around it.

Alternative Summer Holiday Inspiration for your Family

Rather than the typical European getaways, immerse yourself in alternative summer holidays that promise uniqueness and adventure. Explore hidden gems and partake in unique experiences as we redefine the essence of a perfect summer retreat, introducing you to unconventional destinations that go beyond the expected.

Peru

Travel with your kids? It’s going to generate memories like nothing else, but you want to know they’re going to have wonderful days packed with energy. Here your family is planted at the heart of Machi Picchu, which means you’ll be exploring in the tracks of the Incas by horse, on bikes, in kayaks or trekking on foot. Maybe, even, taking to the skies in a tandem paraglider. There’s also plenty of culture, local crafts and conservation to get involved in, so something not just for everyone but for every individual temperament.

Hotel pick: Sol Y Luna, located in the stunning Sacred Valley, you’re surrounded by the snow-capped Andes even when you’re in the amazing outdoor pool.

Switzerland

Ditch your preconceptions: Switzerland isn’t just for winter ski breaks. It’s a tremendous summer playground where everything is done properly, dependably and beautifully. From scenic train rides for the little ones to glacier hikes, paddle-boarding, basketball and kite-surfing, and even dedicated sports clubs, where the pristine Alpine air will build up appetites and wear everyone out after a day of thrilling adventures.

Hotel pick: Badrutt’s Palace, where the stunning alpine views provide the perfect backdrop for outdoor activities and stylish, comfortable suites to retreat back  to.

Kenya

Go wild in Kenya – yes, we mean go completely wild, and sometimes pretty deserted, too, as there are tons of child-friendly holidays to be had here. Of course, these include safaris and exciting wildlife experiences, but also beach holidays and even family cycling tours. Kenya is a lovely country, very accessible and with eye-widening excitement abounding. Accommodation across the country is well developed, and alluring places like the Masai Mara and Amboseli are quite compact, so driving around isn’t too daunting.

Hotel pick: Ol Jogi Wildlife Conservancy, nestled within a 58,000-acre wildlife conservancy, Ol Jogi Wildlife Conservancy is the epitome of exclusive. Enjoy early morning game drives and late afternoon spa treatments.

Canada

Canadian family holidays are certain to be unforgettable, because it’s probably the most outdoors-y country on earth. Whether you’re taking the family into natural wildernesses, staying in one of the country’s surprisingly quirky cities, or hitting the road in a motorhome, adventure awaits. Animal encounters can include bears, beavers, moose and dinosaur ghosts, and you’ll love to see your children’s eyes sparkling around a night-time campfire. Whether you experience its cool, crisp waters from a canoe or while gazing at the Niagara Falls, you’ll still be drenched in Canada’s natural wonders.

Hotel pick: Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge, the 25 canvas tents at this opulent forest outpost, with sustainable local food, take you and your children away from all modern distractions.

Vietnam

You should definitely consider Vietnam for a holiday with your clan, whether young ones or of those often-surly teenagers. The people are super-friendly, the weather good, the food tasty even for faddy young palettes, and there are lots of interesting ways to get around – from boats to bicycles and even overnight trains. Best of all, the sights and experiences are like a school library book coming to life, with temples, pagodas, palaces, zoos, national parks, old towns, speedboat trips through tunnels, paddy fields, museums, floating markets, water puppet shows and even waterparks.

Hotel pick: Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, an opulent oasis with family-sized villas on Vietnam’s rich if little known central coast, with a beach one way and three UNESCO World Heritage sites in the other.

Maldives

Time here, maybe, for your older children to fully understand why mum and dad just need to unwind in the most indulgent way possible. The dazzlingly blue water and soft sand force everyone to slow down and chill, with the odd bursts of adrenaline when snorkelling or swimming. There’s a lot to learn and absorb about marine life and also the huge efforts being made to conserve and cherish the islands, lagoons and atolls in the face of global warming thoughtlessly propelled in places far away. For any antsy offspring, they can play tennis all day to really justify that non-alcholic cocktail!

Hotel pick: The St. Regis Maldives, this private island getaway – remote even for the Maldives – was designed for today’s experiential traveller, from its daring architecture to its dive center, where marine biologists catalog the rich biodiversity

So… time for a ‘family meeting’ to decide which destination to head for! We’d be delighted to help plan your summer family getaway, tailored perfectly to your needs.

Discover the Riches of Africa

We’re exploring the vastness and the contrasts of the African sub-continent this week, featuring six ways to engage with wonderful places, experiences and cultures we think you’ll adore…

Sterrekopje, Franschhoek, South Africa

So, it’s not a hotel – they’re emphatic about that – but this is certainly a place where you’ll relax and unwind entirely, while reconnecting to nature and food so fresh that it could have been harvested just minutes before you tuck in. Sterrekopje is a remote farm nestling in the foothills of the Franschhoek mountains, where over many years the natural balance of the land has been restored and cherished to make it as fertile and sustainable as possible. The biodiverse abundance means 100 different items of fresh produce are grown on-site, miles away from anywhere. You’ll be staying in an elegantly comfortable farmhouse or one of the cottages enfolded by lush nature, and while you enjoy the sanctuary you’ll be reconnecting with your soul – and looking forward to another leisurely dinner under the stars.

Eagle Island Lodge, Okavango Delta, Botswana

There are few places to match the Okavango Delta wetlands to experience a magical and satisfying safari. It’s at its very best from May to September – so think about your trip next year, maybe – when you can glide silently through the natural water channels in a traditional-style canoe, with hippos wallowing either side of you and sea eagles soaring above. This Belmond lodge, is, as you might expect, on its own private island, and the dozen beautiful tented rooms have high ceilings, huge beds and their own plunge pools. They have privacy and wonderful outlooks in equal measure. By staying here you’ll be helping projects to harmlessly separate local livestock from endangered local predators, and to save Africa’s wild dogs.

Virtuoso travelers receive:

For 2023:

  • Daily Full Breakfast for up to two guests per bedroom
  • Private dining experience for up to two guests once during stay, served on the balcony of your room or at a private location within the lodge (must have minimum value of $100 USD equivalent)
  • Early Check-In / Late Check-Out, subject to availability
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi

Serra Cafema, Kaokoland, Namibia

It’s not just animals that are rare, fascinating and in need of traveller support; it’s people too. Namibia’a Himba are some of this stunning country’s last semi-nomads. This is their wide-ranging home, an untouched wilderness of silent deserts and rushing rivers where they have learned to adapt to life alongside everything from oryx and tiny chameleons to crocodiles and zebra. Staying here helps to maintain and protect the delicate balance between all of Serra Cafema’s inhabitants. In exchange, you’ll return each day from all kinds of guided safaris – boat, walking, even quad-biking – to sultry luxury in one of eight suites built from wood, canvas and thatch, with elevated decks to watch the orangeness of the sinking sun intensify… having put away a hearty and local supper.

andBeyond Bateleur Camp, Masai Mara, Kenya

Reflecting the ambience of 1920s and 1930s classic Kenyan safaris, andBeyond Bateleur Camp boasts luxurious safari tents complete with private butler service, ceiling fans and spacious ensuite bathrooms. In close proximity to where the famous final scene of ‘Out of Africa’ was filmed, this magnificent camp is set on a private concession allowing one to explore by day or night, on foot or in a vehicle in the company of your expert safari guide. In the late afternoon, head out in open safari vehicles, and in the evenings have an exclusive experience, a night safari which offers an opportunity to seek out nocturnal wildlife.

Virtuoso travelers receive:

  • Upgrade not applicable for this property
  • Daily breakfast (included in rates)

Victoria Falls River Lodge, Zambezi, Zimbabwe

So close to the Victoria Falls that you can see the mist thrown up by that tumbling crescendo of water, you’ll be staying on Khandahar Island with epic views of the Zambesi river… and you can only get there by boat. Nature teems around you both in the water and on land, where wild elephants spend their days semi-oblivious to the admirers close by. Accommodation is in a series of specially-built treehouse suites, connected by wooden walkways to the lounge, dining area and sunset bar, and the levels of luxury are splendid. The ultimate stay is in one of the two Starbed Treehouses, built spectacularly over two levels above the tree-tops. Not one for the under-16s, mind.

Virtuoso travelers receive:
