1. A LITTLE LAKESIDE SELF-LOVE
For those who like to detox ahead of the holiday season, head to Mandarin Oriental, Lago di Como, and join one of its two new two-day wellness retreats. Not only will your journey to better wellbeing be set to a backdrop of the eternally idyllic Lake Como, but you’ll be able to choose between the Harmony & Inner Balance on the Lake or the Awaken Your Senses on Lake Como retreats. The former focuses on your chakra, with a rose facial, Oriental Qi treatment, yoga session and more, while the latter includes a V Shape Ultra Sonic body treatment, a Functional Training session and Dynamic Recreation back massage and more. Each comes with night’s stay, as well daily breakfast and access to The Spa’s heat and water experiences.
2. NATURAL BEAUTY
The holiday season means different things to different people. If you’re more about escaping somewhere to recharge your batteries before the new year ahead, then make an Early Booking Festive Giveaway at Six Senses Krabey Island in Cambodia, before November 30, and you’ll get 20 per cent savings on the best flexible rate, as well as daily breakfast at AHA restaurant and welcome gifts on arrival. Wrapped in tranquillity, you’ll be hard pushed to do much more here than relax and unwind. The 30-acre private island resort is just off the south coast of Cambodia, with only 40 pool villas to ensure ample tranquillity and privacy. Enveloped in natural tropical landscaping, there’s greenery wherever you look. Each villa is beautifully light and airy, with private sundecks perfect for leisurely alfresco dining. Check into The Beach Retreat to maximise on both relaxation and entertaining space, in what is a true oasis of calm.
