British actress and comedian Nina Wadia goes Sea-toxing at Lošinj Hotels & Villas, Croatia

Having never heard of a “Sea-tox”, I was intrigued. Will I be de-toxifying in the sea itself? Is the Spa made entirely out of seawater? Are the therapists animated Disney sea creatures and if so, will I finally turn into Ariel (my childhood dream…)?

These were my first thoughts on arriving at the Hotel Bellevue, Croatia, part of Lošinj Hotels & Villas, a member of Preferred Hotels and Resorts.

My second thought was that suddenly, I had the lungs of a superhero. This was the cleanest and sweetest air in the world. It turns out that the seawater here has an unusually high concentration of minerals, there are over 200 sunny days per year – something my London brain struggles to grasp, 1,200 species of plants – 230 medicinal – and Aleppo Pines emitting terpenes, all of which makes this the “healthiest air on the planet”. And this is before you even get to the front desk of this spa resort which is destined to be known as the jewel of Croatia’s wellbeing.

The Bellevue Spa Clinic offers a complete ecosystem of wellness, just…

A luxury destination for gourmand spirits

On the northeast of Mallorca, away from the noisy capital and the crowded beaches of the south and west of the island, we find the Grand Hotel Cap Vermell. Perched on the side of a mountain overlooking the Valley of Canyamel, Cap Vermell is a resort like no other in the Balearic Islands, a gastronomic […]

Luxury lifestyle amid stunning natural beauty

Beautiful sandy beaches, white-washed picturesque villages, and an average of 300 days of sun per year make the Algarve, the southernmost region of Portugal, an ideal location for a holiday. Within this region, the Golden Triangle area is strategically located between Faro, the Algarve´s capital, where stands the international airport, Albufeira, notable for its lively […]

Kimpton Aysla Mallorca

The Balearic Islands have attracted visitors since the 1960s, when the first international airport was built in Mallorca, paving the way for a massive growth in the tourist sector. These days, even the smaller islands, such as Formentera, have become major destinations for holiday makers. For discerning travellers such as you, our dear readers, the […]

A beautiful encounter between land and sea

I was thrilled to be invited to explore the Port of Montenegro, just outside of Tivat; it has been on my bucket list for quite some time now. Like other countries in this part of Eastern Europe, Montenegro would have been unknown as a luxury tourist destination until a few years ago. Now, with the […]

Summer holidays in the French Alps

With the weather in Britain going from wet and cold to suffocating hot and humid in just a question of days, a sweltering beach holiday destination may be far less attractive than it used to be; why fly to another country, in high season, just to experience the same baking temperatures you could find in […]

A love story

The quaint town of Wingen-sur-Moder in France’s Northern Vosges Regional National Park has a history of glassmaking dating back to the 15th century. It is also the home of the Lalique factory, opened in 1921 by jewellery and master glassmaker René Lalique. Before his death in 1945, Lalique had stamped his creativity and personality on […]

The heart of Switzerland – Bern and Lausanne

After Zürich, Lucerne and the Bürgenstock resort (read the story HERE), our next stop was the city of Bern, the capital and political centre of Switzerland. We travelled there by train, which, as you’d probably imagine, run as efficiently as Swiss watches on an easy-to-navigate network. Bear in mind they don’t offer wi-fi, though, depending […]

The alternative art scene of Barcelona

Considered the most international of the Spanish cities, Barcelona developed a significant arts community in the late 1800s, with artists like Santiago Rusiñol – one of the leaders of the Catalan modernism movement – Ramón Casas and, of course, Antonio Gaudí. Pablo Picasso himself spent nine formative years here, from 1895 to 1904, training as […]

Our Editor Julia Pasarón makes her way through the heart of Switzerland, discovering a historic country rich in art and crafts, brimming with breathtaking landscapes and boasting the coolest places to hang out on a weekend night. I flew to Zürich, the financial centre of the country – a city that many people associate with […]

Best five-star deal in London

As a rule, when the words “London hotel” and “prices” are found in the same sentence, the gut response is shock. Throwing in the terms “luxury” and “amazing location” is like adding a zero to the fee. This time, however, the shock is in the other direction, because Hotel Amano Covent Garden elicits another, unexpected […]

Beautiful sunset destinations to treat mum

Last week we celebrated International Woman’s Day, and this Sunday we’ll be paying homage to the most significant woman in our life: our mother. Hallmark cards and flowers are always appreciated, “it’s the thought that counts”, but I know from personal experience that time spent together means so much more. Few things are more magical […]
