Luxury short-haul winter holidays
For a great winter break, you can’t get any better than Tenerife in my view.
Four and a half hours from most UK regional airports takes you away from the grey and the rain to warmth and sunshine. Plus, unlike many other European winter breaks, the climate here during autumn and early winter is perfect sunbathing weather (so much so that I’m already planning an early spring return to get some colour before summer!).
This month I spent a glorious long weekend at The Ritz-Carlton, Abama; a hotel that I last visited over three years ago and which has seen many changes in this period to create a resort that’s perfect for everyone.
In its quest for perfection the latest addition will see the world renowned Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge being added to the main hotel, the Citadel, from mid-November, with guest rooms and suites located around the lounge on the tenth floor, with fantastic views of the whole resort and out to sea.
This will be a superb addition to Abama’s already large range of facilities and accommodation choices – rooms, suites, villa rooms and suites with their own pool, Tagor accommodation with their own pool and golf buggies to explore the resort, golden sandy beach, spa, golf course, Ritz-Kids club, range of restaurant choices including 2 Michelin-starred restaurants…the list goes on!
There really is something for everyone here and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it for some winter sunshine.
