It’s quickly approaching the end of August; the weather has taken an autumnal change and the evenings are already starting to draw in. Thoughts are starting to move to the new school year, starting college and possibly packing away your summer wardrobe! But, here at VOYA we want to hold onto that Summer feeling for a little while longer. So, this week on the blog we are dreaming about some last minute Summer sun! Discover some luxury VOYA Spa destinations, near and far that might inspire you to book that last-minute holiday!
Sagres is one of Portugal’s most historic towns, the area enjoys comfortable temperatures all year round with a yearly average of 300 sunny days. The town is renowned as a surfing destination, but if that’s not for you, you’ll discover beautiful beaches and a laidback village with a friendly atmosphere and cool cafes and bars. It's the perfect spot if you want a more relaxed vibe to the busier Algarve districts. The area is also ideal for those who enjoy a more active holiday, with plenty of outdoor activities, like hiking, cycling and fishing available.
The Martinhal Sagres Beach Family Resort is carefully positioned between the land and the sea. Perfect for families, it has a large range of amenities and the Finisterra spa offers guests, large and small, an escape into a world of relaxation and pampering. You can treat yourself to a range of VOYA treatments at the spa which promotes a profound sense of wellbeing onto anyone who enters this space.
Mykonos, Santorini and Zakynthos may be the most popular Greek destinations of late. But we recommend the quieter lesser known island of Kefalonia. The largest Ionian island in Western Greece, it is understated, relatively undiscovered and has a diverse range of natural beauty, including beaches, caves and mountains. F Zeen is the perfect environment for a laid back retreat that encourages the relaxation and healing of both body and mind. The Ídor Wellness Spa offers a bespoke selection of VOYA treatments and has several on site therapists dedicated to making guests experience as enjoyable and relaxing as possible.
Home to diverse marine life, arching stone cliffs, an up and coming food scene and an eclectic range of bars and clubs! A week lounging in beautiful Los Cabos, Mexico sounds like the perfect autumnal pick me up. You can partake in a wide range of outdoor activities such as horse-riding or paragliding or try some water sports including diving and snorkeling, kayaking or supping. If you’re more of a sun worshiper, then there are numerous white sandy beaches to catch some rays on. Opening September 1st 2018, Solaz Los Cabos will offer a range of VOYA treatments in their beautiful Spa, the perfect way to relax and unwind following a day of enjoying all the region has to offer.
Looking for the ideal holiday to beach-bum? Antigua may be your perfect destination, there are a whopping 365 beaches on this Caribbean isle, so you’re bound to find the perfect one! With stunning off-shore reefs, Antigua is an excellent place to don a mask and fins and explore the brightly coloured corals. If water sports aren’t your thing, the island is surrounded by lush rainforest so there are countless walks and hikes for those wanting to explore on foot.
Away from the land and sea activities, the waterfront area comes alive each day and offers an abundance of cafes and markets to ensure there’s plenty to eat, see and do! Carlisle Bay, a luxurious beach and spa resort located on the southern shore of the Caribbean island of Antigua is perfectly suited to seclusion and relaxation as it is to activities and exploring. The Blue Spa which offers a range of VOYA treatment promotes three fundamental philosophies: health, wellbeing and feeling fantastic!
With unrivalled luxury the Maldives is an ultimate holiday of a lifetime! There are stunning white-sand beaches, which you'll find on almost every one of the country’s nearly 1200 islands and with amazing clear waters, it has some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world.
