Koh Samui, Thailand, Flights & 5* Luxury All Inclusive Resort, €1579!

mai-samui_opt-1

Forget about the paradise beaches, the English meaning of Ko Samui – ‘safe haven island’, makes you want to go there…

 

Koh Samui is one of Thailand’s most popular islands for tourists yet it has managed to stay authentic. It attracts trendy students and upmarket couples and thankfully, not as many rowdy crowds that descend on some of Thailand’s other islands. Stunning beaches, amazing restaurants and lively beach parties are what it is renowned for but if you look a little closer you will find lots of traditional villages with local food stalls, pretty temples, rainforests, waterfalls and even some deserted beaches. A visit to Ang Thong Marine National Park is a must. Complete with 42 islands, some mountainous, some jungle clad, and some with hidden coves just waiting to be explored. When you arrive back at your hotel, a Thai massage will be greatly appreciated 😉

Koh Samui

Speaking of which, the luxurious 5* Mai Samui Resort offers many pampering spa treatments, as well as three swimming pools and a host of on site activities. Take a Thai cookery class, try water yoga or if you are feeling energetic try mountain biking or sea kayaking. The beauty of the Mai Samui Resort is that meals and drinks are included in the price. Enjoy personal service from their excellent staff who will cater for your every need.  There is a choice of three restaurants plus light bites served at the Sand bar ( how cool does that sound?) For a full list of what is included click here. Enjoy a sundowner at the swim up bar or beach bar – did I mention that Koh Samui has the most amazing sunsets!

Koh Samui

This traditional Thai hotel is perfect for anyone who is looking for a luxury hotel in a secluded area, with fantastic facilities. It receives excellent reviews on tripadvisor as well as quotes like ‘dream holiday’ and ‘paradise’!  Tropical Sky are offering an amazing deal for anyone who books 5 nights – you can get the same number of nights FREE! They have deals available from €1,519 for a seven night stay in the winter months and €1579 next Summer. All prices include flights, hotel on an all-inclusive basis, transfers, baggage, all taxes and assistance while in resort.

5* All Inclusive at the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande, €2059!

gorgeous-1303903_1280_opt

Palace Resorts offer some of the best all-inclusive hotels in the Caribbean. Until 2015 they only had hotels in Mexico, but they bowed to demand and opened their first 5* luxury hotel in Jamaica last year!

Situated right at the water’s edge, with nothing in front of you only immaculate white sandy beaches and the blue waters of the Caribbean, the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande’s setting is perfect. This modern resort offers the highest standards in service and quality and has everything you need for a fun filled Caribbean holiday.

Moon Palace Jamaica Grande Resort

Like all Palace Resorts the all-inclusive arrangement is excellent and is available 24 hours a day. No need to check what drinks are included here, they all are, well maybe not 200 year old scotch but you get the idea! Johnnie Walker black label, Grey goose vodka and good quality wines, are all included, either in one of the five bars, or in your bedroom! The dining options are superb and Palace resorts are renowned for their high quality cuisine. You can choose any of the six restaurants which feature American, Mexican, Italian and Pan-Asian cuisine, and all are included in the price of your stay.

Moon Palace Jamaica Grande

There are lots of activities included too, try sailing, snorkeling or test your surfing skills on their surf simulator. The icing on the cake is when you book seven nights at the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande you automatically get a whopping $1500 resort credit! How amazing is that! This can be used for spa treatments, motorised water sports or one of their tours. The hotel has their own dolphin habitat so why not use your resort credit for a dolphin swim? Click here for more details.

Moon Palace Jamaica Grande Resort

One of the things I love about this resort is that it’s only five minutes from downtown Ocho Rios. Once a small fishing village Ocho Rios is now one of Jamaica’s most popular tourist resorts. This is also where most of the cruise ships are docked and is a bustling town with an international vibe. You are also next door to one of the island’s most popular tourist attractions, Dunn’s river falls. This waterfall is unlike any you have seen before, and climbing the 600ft to the top, just has to be done! If I can do it, so can you! There are lots of other day trip opportunities in Jamaica.You can go horse riding in the sea, river rafting on the Martha Brae river, or my personal favourite, take a trip to Negril to watch the sunset from the iconic Rick’s cafe!
 Moon Palace Jamaica Grande

 

Fly from Dublin to Jamaica and enjoy a seven night all-inclusive stay from only €2,059 per person. For a limited time receive an additional $1500 resort credit! This price is based on departing the 25th of September, but Tropical Sky have amazing offers at the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande Resort throughout the winter and for Summer 2017.

Maritim 2_opt

Think long haul this year and try somewhere new.  Stay at the 5* All Inclusive, Maritim Resort & Spa, Mauritius from only €1719!

 

“Mauritius was made first and then heaven, heaven being copied after Mauritius” – Mark Twain

When you think about Mauritius, luxury hotels on white powder beaches spring to mind. While that sounds pretty good, it is only scratching the surface. From snorkelling to whale watching, waterfalls to water-sports, fine dining to creole cooking, Mauritius is an island of contrasts. One minute you can be on one of the best beaches in the world, the next, navigating rolling hills seeing remarkable wildlife. All that being said, it’s the luxury hotels and white sandy beaches that attract millions of holidaymakers each year – and Mauritius has plenty of them too!

5* All Inclusive Maritim Resort & Spa, Mauritius, €1549!

I found an amazing deal with TropicalSky.ie staying in the 5* Maritim Resort & Spa. Set on 60 acres of tropical gardens on a white powder beach, it is as their slogan says, ‘beyond paradise’.  You can relax at the infinity pool, the beach or the spa. You can go horse riding, play tennis or a round of golf! There are numerous water-sports on the beach as well a dive centre.

The resort is all-inclusive and as you would expect from a luxury resort and there is a wide choice of dining options. And the drinks are pretty good too! You can choose quality French wines and imported spirits, you can even drink from your own minibar without paying a supplement! Wifi is free in all rooms and public areas, so plenty of opportunities to post selfies from the beach 🙂 If all of this isn’t enough, you are located between Port Louis (Mauritius’ vibrant capital) and Grand-Baie – the lively tourist resort.

5* All Inclusive Maritim Resort & Spa, Mauritius, €1549!

Fly from Dublin to Mauritius and spend seven nights at the 5* All Inclusive Maritim Resort & Spa, Mauritius from €1719 – that’s a massive saving of €800 per person!
