Five-star breaks for those wanting to escape the city

28th May 2013 Print

In addition to a busy and stressful work life, living in the city can take its toll. The hectic commute to work, often becomes too much to handle. Furthermore, overcrowded roads and busy shopping centres only increase tension and anxiety.

Therefore, getting away from the congestion and taking a holiday in more tranquil surroundings is essential in modern life. We may take more holidays these days, but we still treat these occasions as special.

Thankfully, a luxury 5* break with Club Med , or 5T, as it’s called at Club Med, will allow you to escape the city and enjoy some much-needed relaxation.

Mauritius - La Plantation d'Albion

The island of Mauritius, located in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, is a popular destination for holidaymakers looking for luxurious serenity. Alongside the beautiful ocean and immaculate beaches lie stunning mountain ranges and sugarcane plantations.

Club Med's La Plantation d'Albion resort is the epitome of style and grandeur. Situated in one of the island's remote creeks, the resort offers unrivalled levels of comfort, with luxury suites positioned between the mountains and the sea.

La Plantation d'Albion's idyllic setting is just 300 yards from the beach, which is protected by beautiful coral reef. However, if you want a little privacy, you can take advantage of the resort's intimate overflow pool and dedicated spa.

Morocco - Marrakech Le Riad

The historic, diverse and alluring country of Morocco has several breath taking holiday destinations, with Marrakech topping the lists of several travellers. With its captivating palaces and intimate markets, Morocco's fourth largest city also boasts a stunning five-star resort.

Marrakech Le Riad possesses sixty secluded suites, each with a private terrace or garden. The traditional Moroccan decor and spectacular fruit trees in this location’s celebrated palm grove will astound its privileged guests.

Visitors can be assured of superlative service, including breakfast to your room, an open bar and snacks around the luxurious pool – plus champagne in the tranquil evenings.

France - Club Med 2

If you truly want to escape the city, then you might consider taking a cruise aboard the Club Med 2 along the coast of northern Europe and the Mediterranean. This magnificent liner is the embodiment of opulence and splendour, with an interior designed by Sophie Jacqumin and dedicated service from the crew members.

Every cabin has an ocean view, which is quite a sight to wake up to, and there are also eight decks, which give you a great sense of freedom. Taking advantage of the personal service from beauty and massage therapists at Club Med's Spa, by Carit, is another great way to unwind.

A choice of restaurants on board offer generous buffets, while an open bar with drinks and snacks served throughout the day will ensure you never want to stop sailing the ocean.
