Velaa Private Island, Maldive

Pe Atolul Noonu, la 45 minute de zbor cu hidroavionul de Male se afla Velaa Private Island, un resort boutique luxury de exceptie, pregatit sa-si trateze oaspetii regeste.

Numele resortului, o fuziune eleganta intre cultura locala si luxul contemporan, inseamna „Insula Testoaselor” (traducerea din limba locala). Numele si designul interior a fost inspirat de zecile de broaste testoase ce veneau aici sa-si formeze cuibul. Detinuta de omul de afaceri ceh Jiri Smejc, Velaa Private Island a fost creata pentru a oferi serviciile si cadrul perfect pentru o vacanta privata de lux.

Velaa detine doar 45 de vile pe apa si pe plaja ce au un element comun – intimitatea. Fiecare vila are propria piscina si spatii generoase de relaxare, cu finisaje din materiale naturale pretioase precum tec, bambus, ratan, piatra.

Cu al sau spa exotic, restaurantele ce ofera experiente culinare rafinate si nenumaratele activitati in aer liber, precum plimbari cu minisubmarinul cu siguranta nu vei avea timp sa te plictisesti aici.

La Dolce Vita an der Amalfiküste

Azurblaues Wasser, strahlender Sonnenschein, tolles Essen und kleine bunte Häuser, die sich an die Felswände schmiegen − die Amalfiküste ist ein wahrgewordener Postkartentraum. Von Neapel aus erreichen Sie die wunderschöne Gegend in etwa einer Stunde. Ab da müssen Sie sich eigentlich nur noch entscheiden, welchen Ort Sie als erstes besuchen möchten. Um einen besseren Überblick zu geben, präsentieren wir Ihnen die besten Tipps in der Region.

Travelzoo®

Neapel
Am Fuße des Vesuvs liegt die Hauptstadt Kampaniens, Neapel. Zugegeben, die Schönheit dieser Stadt erschließt sich nicht auf den ersten Blick, aber dennoch zieht einen die Stadt mit ihrem ruppigen Charme und verruchten Ruf in ihren Bann. Am besten erkunden Sie die Stadt zu Fuß oder mit der Metro. Ein Highlight ist auch eine Fahrt mit der Standseilbahn (fonicolare) auf den Montesanto, von wo Sie einen großartigen Ausblick haben. Wer insbesondere im Sommer der Hitze der Straßen entfliehen möchte, besucht am besten die Katakomben. Dort ist es nicht nur angenehm kühl, Sie erfahren auch noch interessante Informationen über die Geschichte der Stadt. Im Gran Caffè Gambrinus stärken Sie sich mit den besten Sfogliatelle, Blätterteigtaschen mit einer Füllung aus Ricotta, Zimt und Orangenblütenaroma.

Travelzoo®

Pompeji
„In Pompeji trifft sich die halbe Welt“, schreibt der Reiseführer Marco Polo. Die legendären Ausgrabungsstätten gehören für fast alle Touristen zu den Must-Dos. Unser Tipp: Reisen Sie möglichst früh an und erkunden Sie die Ruinenstadt auf eigene Faust. Ein Audioguide liefert spannende Fakten über die einzelnen Gebäude, die ansonsten alle sehr ähnlich aussehen. So können Sie Ihren Rundgang individuell gestalten. Es empfiehlt sich außerdem, genügend Wasser und ein paar Snacks mitzunehmen. Im Inneren der Anlage ist das gastronomische Angebot sehr begrenzt.

Travelzoo®

Vesuv
Von fast überall sieht man den Vesuv oberhalb des Golfes thronen. Heute noch leben knapp 700.000 Menschen am Fuße des Vulkans, denn die fruchtbare Erde beschert der Gegend einen besonderen Reichtum an köstlichen Obst- und Gemüsesorten. Wenn Sie den Krater besuchen möchten, nehmen Sie am besten die Straße von Ercolano aus. Vom Parkplatz fahren Shuttle-Busse zum Eingang und ab da beginnt der 40-minütige Aufstieg bis zum Kraterrand. Bei klarer Sicht werden Sie mit einem atemberaubenden Panorama auf den Golf belohnt.

Travelzoo®

Sorrent
Die Städtchen der Amalfiküste schlängeln sich aufgereiht wie auf einer Perlenkette den Golf entlang. Etwa 50 Minuten Autofahrt von Neapel befindet sich Sorrent. Die Stadt liegt auf einem Tuffplateau und hat sich so schnell zu einem beliebten Ferienort entwickelt, wovon die vielen Prachtbauten zeugen. Sorrent bietet einen idealen Ausgangspunkt für einen Urlaub an der Amalfiküste, da von hier aus das Netz der meisten Straßen und öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel Richtung Küste oder Neapel startet. Schlendern Sie durch die kleinen Gässchen Richtung Strand, wo die Restaurants mit fangfrischem Fisch locken. Besonders romantisch ist ein Abstecher am Balkon der Villa Communale am Abend, wo nicht nur verliebte Pärchen den Sonnenuntergang genießen. Wenn dann auch noch ein Straßenmusiker sein Können zum Besten geben, mag die Szene auf den ersten Blick kaum an Kitsch zu überbieten sein, doch lässt man sich leicht von der Stimmung verzaubern.

Travelzoo®

Zitronen
Gibt das Leben dir Zitronen… Solltest Du hoffen, dass sie von der Amalfiküste stammen. So oder so ähnlich lässt sich die Liebe zur gelben Frucht in der Gegend beschreiben. Und tatsächlich haben die fast melonengroßen Zitronen aus Sorrent nur wenig Gemeinsamkeiten mit dem hiesigen Pendant im Supermarkt. Am besten schmecken sie uns als Granita, die man an jeder Ecke kaufen kann. Das Fruchtsorbet schmeckt herrlich zitronig, ohne dabei zu sauer zu sein und ist die perfekte Erfrischung. Ein weiterer Klassiker ist natürlich der Limoncello, der berühmte Zitronenlikör.

Travelzoo®

Positano
Schon wenn man von der Landstraße Richtung Positano fährt, offenbart sich die Schönheit des kleinen Küstenorts. Die pastellfarbenen Häuser schmiegen sich an den Berg, zu ihren Füßen das azurblaue Meer. Kein Wunder, dass Positano als „die Perle der Amalfiküste“ gilt und sich hier der internationale Jetset versammelt. Meist liegen die Stars mit ihren luxuriösen Yachten vor Anker. Nichtsdestotrotz sollten Sie Positano nicht verpassen. Wir empfehlen einen Besuch am Abend, wenn die Tagestouristen schon wieder abgereist sind. Der Hauptstraße entlang am Berg reiht sich ein Restaurant an das nächste, mit etwas Glück ergattern Sie einen Tisch in der ersten Reihe mit Blick auf die Bucht. In den Gassen Richtung Strand haben sich viele Kunstgalerien niedergelassen, in denen man die Kunstwerke beim Vorbeischlendern bewundern kann.

Travelzoo®

Ravello
Ravello liegt mitten in den Bergen des „Valle del Dragone“ (Drachental) in 350 Metern Höhe. Hier wächst vor allem Wein, der als der beste der Küste gehandelt wird. Mag es an den vielen Treppenstufen liegen oder weil der Ort nicht direkt am Meer liegt, zumindest scheinen die Gassen verhältnismäßig leer zu sein im Vergleich zu anderen beliebten Orten der Amalfiküste. Eine gute Gelegenheit innezuhalten und den Ort in Ruhe zu erkunden. Dazu passt ein Besuch der Villa Cimbrone, ein Palazzo mit weitläufigem Garten, der zum Lustwandeln einlädt. Von der Terrasse aus haben Sie einen atemberaubenden Ausblick auf das Meer und das Valle del Dragone. Ein beliebter Ort, um Selfies zu machen, aber auch einfach das Panorama zu genießen. Nutzen Sie die Gelegenheit, den hervorragenden Wein in einem der zahlreichen Restaurants zu kosten. Zusammen mit Spezialitäten aus der Region, etwa Mozzarella auf Zitronenblättern oder Zitronen-Gnocchi.

Travelzoo®

Amalfi
Amalfi steht ebenfalls auf der Liste vieler Touristen, entsprechend platzt die Stadt normalerweise schon früh am Tag aus allen Nähten, was sich vor allem an fehlenden Parkplätzen bemerkbar macht. Am besten parkt man etwas außerhalb und läuft durch die vielen Gässchen bis ins Stadtzentrum. Das Labyrinth verbindet insgesamt sieben Kirchen, den Dom und den Hafen. Er zählte im Mittelalter zu den bedeutendsten des Landes, heute lebt die Stadt hauptsächlich vom Tourismus. Ein Highlight ist der Duomo Sant’Andrea mit seiner außergewöhnlichen Fassade mit schwarz-weißem Marmordekor. Etwas abseits der großen Touristenmassen liegt der kleine Nachbarort Atrani, wo man gut und verhältnismäßig günstig essen gehen kann.

Travelzoo®

Capri
Capri − das ist der Sehnsuchtsort für viele und Versammlungsort der Schönen und Reichen. Besonders zur Hauptsaison tummeln sich überall Touristen und es bilden sich lange Schlangen vor den Touristenattraktionen. Um die Landschaft bewundern zu können, empfiehlt sich daher ein Besuch in der Nebensaison, das gilt übrigens für die gesamte Küstenregion. Auf Capri gibt es zwei Möglichkeiten, die Insel zu erkunden: Zu Land und zu Wasser. Mit der Fähre kann man ganz einfach auf eigene Faust zur Insel gelangen und zu Fuß die Hügel erklimmen. Dort schaffen es weniger Touristen hin und man wird mit einem Panorama auf den berühmten Felsbogen im Meer belohnt.

Alternativ gibt es geführte Bootsausflüge, die die Insel umfahren. Viele Anbieter fahren außerdem direkt an die Blaue Grotte. Neben der Blauen Grotte fahren die Boote auch noch weitere Grotten an, die mit bunten Farbformationen begeistern. Ein Besuch der Blauen Grotte ist nichts für schwache Nerven − zunächst wird Geduld gefordert, bis man endlich eines der kleinen Ruderboote besteigen darf. Die Bootsführer steuern die Bötchen durch eine schmale Felsöffnung, dabei müssen sich die Passagiere ganz flach hinlegen, bis es mit Schwung in die Grotte geht. Dort eröffnet sich allerdings ein magischer Anblick dank des einmaligen Lichts, das die Höhle in ein sattes Blau taucht.

Travelzoo®

Pizza
Der Legende nach ist Neapel die Geburtsstätte der Pizza. Mittlerweile genießt sie sogar den Status des UNESCO-Weltkulturerbes. Die typische Pizza ist im Steinofen gebacken und hat einen luftigen Teigrand, in der Mitte ist sie dagegen eher feucht, durch die dicke Tomatenschicht. Traditionell besticht die neapolitanische Pizza durch Purismus der Zutaten, die nur aus Tomaten, Olivenöl, Mozzarella, Oregano und etwas Knoblauch bestehen. Neben der Ofenpizza gibt es auch noch die Variation „pizzetta fritta“, die in einer Pfanne mit heißem Sonnenblumenöl ausgebacken wird.

Verkehr
Der Verkehr rund um Neapel ist berühmt berüchtigt. Kaum ein Auto, das keine Schramme vorzuweisen hat. Nichtsdestotrotz empfiehlt sich ein Mietwagen, um so die ganzen Küstenorte erkunden zu können. Sie sollten allerdings unbedingt auf ein umfangreiches Versicherungspaket achten, um so im Schadensfall abgesichert zu sein. In den Küstenorten gibt es ausnahmslos kostenpflichtige Parkplätze, viele Hotels und Restaurants bieten ihren Gästen allerdings kostenlose Parkmöglichkeiten an. Eine wendigere Alternative mit weniger Parkplatzschwierigkeiten sind Motorroller, mit denen man durch die Gegend düsen kann.

The waste materials collected at Istanbul Airport turned into art at „0“ Zero Point

The portraits that artist Deniz Sağdıç created with waste materials met with the viewers at Istanbul Airport. The exhibition where materials such as the old uniforms bearing the trademarks of iGA and its stakeholders, buttons, as well as plastic containers and bags collected at Istanbul Airport are turned into art draws great interest from the passengers.

Speeding up its activities in culture and art with iGART, Istanbul Airport continues to make more space for art with its innovative projects. The latest of culture and art meetings at Istanbul Airport is taking place with the exhibition “0’’ Zero Point by the artist Deniz Sağdıç. Istanbul Airport aims to inspire its guests about eco-friendly habits with the „0“ Zero Point project. The artworks consisting of portraits with characteristics of various nationalities are exhibited at Istanbul Airport. The exhibition, which was opened for visitors in January in the International Departures Terminal at Istanbul Airport, attracts great attention. A portion of the income received from the sales of the artworks will be used in iGA’s Corporate Social Responsibility Projects. 20 pieces exhibited which Deniz Sağdıç and her team created after 4 months of workshop consist of used/waste materials such as old uniforms bearing the trademarks of iGA and its stakeholders as well as plastic containers, rubbish bags, cables, and buttons discovered and identified by Istanbul Airport’s Waste Management Centre.  

Deniz Sağdıç, in her „Ready-ReMade“ project which she launched in 2015, tries to remake everyday objects abandoned by people, as well as all kinds of waste materials, as works of art in the world of art itself. The artist, with this technique, aims to encourage individuals to reconsider their consumption habits, to inspire people and institutions about „sustainability“, to take art closer to people by using everyday materials rather than anything that requires specialization and skill, and to point out that art, like any other area or industry, is a matter of sustainability.

The exhibition launched by Istanbul Airport to inspire its visitors about eco-friendly lifestyle habits and raise their awareness of sustainability and recycling will be open to visitors for three months.

Cum ar fi să mergi în vacanță, în Cipru?

Sfaturi și recomandări pentru un sejur cu tente exotice, în Cipru.

Da, ai citit corect. Tente exotice spuneam. Cipru… 

este o insulă care, deși se află la doar două ore jumătate de zbor de țara noastră, își întâmpină oaspeții într-un cadru deosebit. Un relief variat, presărat cu note semideșertice, cu palmieri și vegetație mediteraneană, cu măslini și flori colorate. O insulă pe care o poți străbate de-a lungul său în câteva ore, cu mașina sau cu autobuzul. Și pe care o poți cunoaște îdeaproape, în câteva zile de colindat. 

Larnaca este capitala unde vei și ateriza, în cazul în care alegi un sejur charter în Cipru. Aeroportul este micuț dar bine organizat. De aici și până în zona de plajă și a hotelurilor vei parcurge foarte puțin. De ordinul minutelor sau a zecilor de minute, în funcție de zona în care ai ales să îți petreci vacanța. Cele mai multe hoteluri sunt de 3 și 4 stele, amplasate la promenadă sau în interiorul orașului. Există și unele hoteluri amplasate pe plajă însă nu foarte multe și nici standardul lor nu este foarte ridicat. Suficient, însă, cât să respiri aerul mediteranean al insulei și să petreci un timp relaxant, îmbinând plaja cu senzația de city break. Există și câteva resorturi unde confortul oferit este mai ridicat, oferind facilități spa și o gamă mai largă de posibilități de relaxare. 

La sud, se află Limassol, un oraș măricel, unde există resorturi de 5 stele cunoscute, de lanț. Iar la nord, se află cunoscuta stațiune Ayia Napa. Aici, se află vestita plajă Nissi Beach, o plajă cu nisip fin, care desparte mediterana în două.

Ținând nordul, ajungem în regiunea turcească, denumită Cipru de Nord.

Aici, cultura grecească se disipă și devine pregnantă cea turcă. De la oameni, limbă, obiceiuri, cultură, gastronomie și felul de a face turism – toate se schimbă. 

Vei descoperi locuri unice și fabuloase, despre care cred că sunt convinsă că încă nu ştiai prea multe. Vei auzi legende şi fragmente de istorie care prind sens pe acest tărâm magic. De asemenea, Cipru de Nord e o destinaţie care aminteşte de litoralul turcesc. De cunoscutele stațiuni din Turcia. Cumva, m-a trimis cu gândul la Antalya, oferind un amestec de farmec local şi forfotă turistică. Până și cum ești poftit în localuri și servit în restaurante se aseamănă foarte mult cu modul din Turcia. Și este și normal să fie așa, odată ce vei înțelege istoria acestui mic petic de pământ, din mijlocul Mediteranei. 

Recomand o vacanță în Cipru de nord, familiilor cu copii, celor care vor să viziteze locuri și împrejurimi, celor care apreciază autenticul și sunt pasionați de cultură. Iar posibilităție de distracție în rândul celor tineri nu ar putea lipsi așa că nu îți face griji nici în legătura cu acest aspect. 

Vremea pentru baie şi plajă este excelentă (25-30 grade Celsius) în lunile aprilie, mai, iunie, octombrie şi noiembrie. În iulie şi august e destul de cald, peste 35 de grade, dar dacă suporţi uşor căldura, atunci poţi lua în calcul şi această perioadă. Iar pentru explorare şi plimbări, poţi alege o vacanţă aici şi iarna, când temperaturile sunt plăcute, în jur de 15 grade.

COMO Hotels and Resorts expands its private island portfolio with launch ofCOMO Laucala Island in Fiji

The multi-award-winning luxury lifestyle brand grows its exclusive private island collection — a portfolio which includes COMO Parrot Cay and COMO Maalifushi — with the addition of a 5.4 square mile island resort in the South Pacific.

COMO Hotels and Resorts unveils COMO Laucala Island,
a new private island escape in the South Pacific, slated to open 15 December 2021. COMO Laucala Island offers unspoiled wilderness surrounded by turquoise-blue sea and white sandy
beaches. At the heart of the island are tropical rainforests, volcanic mountains, blue lagoons, mangroves and coconut groves, fostering a unique habitat that is waiting to be explored. COMO Laucala Island will offer guests the perfect island escape in a unique and carefully
protected ecosystem.

This is a resort where space is luxury: 25 residences, each with their own COMO butler, spread out on private beaches, above lagoons, atop hills and mountains. With its private airstrip accessed by a 45-minute private air charter from the country’s Nadi International Airport, this exclusive sanctuary will provide unparalleled levels of luxury living in 25 standalone residences located on the northern shore of the island.

The carefully designed spaces are at one with nature and surprise with individual features and views out across the Pacific. Ranging in size between 3000 to 4000 sqm, all residences feature private pools. The construction has been carefully considered using local materials
where possible. The Residences are built with natural Fijian wood in a South Pacific style, and are blended seamlessly with COMO’s unmistakable contemporary flair.

Every imaginable activity is part of the COMO Laucala Island experience. A first for COMO, the island features a tropical 18-hole David McLay Kidd designed golf-course, a wide range of land and water activities, a fleet of jet-skis, sailing and game fishing boats as well as jet boats
and diving boats. The resort also offers horse-riding, mountain biking, nature hikes and tennis.

COMO Shambhala Retreat, the island’s wellness centre, is the embodiment of COMO’s philosophy for holistic, healthy living. At this nurturing retreat, guests can expect physical fitness classes, yoga, and a fitness centre. Treatments make use of COMO Shambhala’s
signature products, as well as the island’s herbs, spices, flowers, and fruits. COMO Shambhala’s signature Asian-inspired massages and body treatments using the island’s river stones, mineral crystals and rich volcanic soils are also provided.

To minimise its impact on the environment and in line with COMO’s farm-to-table philosophy, the island’s five dining options receive fresh produce from the resort’s 240-acre farm, cultivating a wide range of organic crops and livestock including chickens, quail and wagyu
cattle. Fresh seafood supplies are sourced exclusively from local fishermen, contributing to the island’s commitment to sustainability. Menus include COMO Shambhala options, which are high in flavour, nutrition, and low in fats and refined sugars.

Vacanță all inclusive în Antalya: relaxare, facilități pentru copii și multă distracție

Care sunt motivele pentru a alege un sejur all inclusive în Antalya?

Vacanță all inclusive în Antalya: relaxare, facilități pentru copii și multă distracție

Antalya se află în topul alegerilor turiștilor români dar și a multora dintre străini. „Dotată“ cu o infrastructură turistică foarte dezvoltată și cu o cultură a ospitalității vastă, specific turcească, Antalya se arată foarte atractivă pentru foarte mulți turiști. Aici, hotelurile de 5 stele se împart în 3 categorii: standard, superior și de lux. Astfel încât, aproape oricine, în funcție de pretențiile sale referitoare la confort și în funcție de bugetul alocat, se poate simți excelent. Resorturile sunt special construite pentru a crea experienţe plăcute pentru turişti: cu numeroase piscine, restaurante internaționale, cu flori și multă verdeață și cu baruri, terase, săli şi terenuri de sport. Pe plajele private, există numeroase activități atractive, precum volley sau sporturi nautice. Iar copiii nu sunt deloc neglijați, având numeroase opțiuni de petrecerea timpului. Mai ales că există hoteluri dedicate special familiilor cu copiii.

Aici vei găsi o listă cu hotelurile recomandante din Antalya pe care eu mizez, atunci când ofertez turiștii interesați de un sejur reușit. Aruncă o privire peste ele și fă-ți o părere. Poate reușești să îți dai seama cam ce ți s-ar potrivi ție și familiei tale. Nu ezita să mă contactezi dacă te-ar ajura mai multe sfaturi. Vei vedea diferite concepte, unele adresate familiilor, altele cuplurilor și adulților. Îți recomand să ții cont și de faptul că dacă rezervi în această perioadă, poți prinde reduceri substanțiale. Poți economisi sute de euro pentru rezervări cu Early Booking așa că nu ar strica deloc să te organizezi, din timp, pentru vara lui 2020.

Iar pe lângă toate facilitățile resorturilor, Antalya oferă și acces spre o lume mai puțin știută. 

În Munții Taurus, te poți distra foarte bine, alegând să faci rafting, în bărci pneumatice. Mai poți alege dintre scuba diving printre creaturile exotice din Mediterana sau o sesiune de ski nautic. O altă opțiune de petrecerea timpului liber, este să vizitezi Aquariumul din Antalya. Aici se află cel mai lung tunel acvatic din lume și o mulțime de specii marine pe care nu te-ai fi gândit că o să le vezi atât de curând. Și ar fi păcat să nu vizitezi Poarta lui Hadrian și Kaleiçi, aflată în capitala provinciei Antalya. Attaleia, cum se numea în antichitate oraşul, are câteva obiective turistice absolut spectaculoase. Mie mi-au plăcut foarte mult Poarta lui Hadrian și orașul vechi. 

Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa: Luxury Experience at Paradise Haven

Few places on earth can boast such a rich yet sophisticated touch of natural luxury as the Maldives.

Here, at the northern part of this tropical paradise, is a resort that brings its charms to perfection, offering the delights of world-class hospitality and ultra-comfortable amenities. Welcome to Hideaway Resort in Maldives, the place where dreams of the perfect vacation come true.

Location

Dhonakulhi Island, on which Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa is located, epitomizes the best you can expect from the Maldives and even more. An immaculately maintained piece of paradise land 1.4 kilometers long and 500 meters wide, covered in tropical vegetation, it is surrounded by crystal clear waters and boasts a picturesque lagoon with wonderful private white sandy beaches. In 2005, a resort called Island Hideaway At Dhonakulhi Spa Resort & Marina was launched on the island, and in 2014 it reopened as Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa after a complete renovation. The renovation transformed the place, greatly increasing the number of rooms and improving the infrastructure for greater guest comfort.

The resort guests‘ vacation experience begins with arrival at the airport in Male’, where a Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa representative assists you with check-in for your Maldivian Airlines domestic flight to Hanimaadhoo.

Villas and rooms ranging in size from 130 square meters to 575 square meters offer one of the highest levels of comfort and luxury in the Maldives. All guests irregardless of room category have a personal butler who takes care of all their needs.

For fitness junkies, the resort offers exciting experiences such as running in the outdoors of the 33-hectares island with winding roads filled with exciting flora and fauna to make your runs interesting or jumping around at the aqua floating park near the Deep Blue Water Sports Center. Don’t forget to visit the massive sports complex with table tennis, beach volleyball, tennis, gym, and basketball court. There are some amazing experiences for guests who require more relaxing activities such as exploring the unique double house reef while snorkeling and trying out the Golf

Simulator at the Hideaway Golf Centre. All these places at the resort are easily reachable with a handy bike which is available for each villa upon arrival. The Signature Collection by Hideaway

In 2021, Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa unveiled a new concept of a resort within a resort, launching a new brand for the most demanding travelers looking for a truly luxurious Maldivian vacation experience. The Signature Collection by Hideaway embodies a collection of even more spacious beach villas with more bedroom options, offering secluded accommodations such as three-bedrooms and four-bedrooms in nine ultra-luxurious villas on the northernmost point of Dhonakulhi Island. This area of the island is also home to one of the best beaches of the resort – the North Point Beach. Sophisticated guests will enjoy the unique allure of exclusivity and refined luxury praised by the Luxury Lifestyle Awards experts. The villas artfully combine Middle Eastern influences with an upscale, barefoot luxury living ambience, and the Signature guests will be able to enjoy exclusive privileges and services at the resort.

Dining

Guests at Hideaway Beach Resort & Spa have the opportunity to enjoy world-class dining experiences in 4 restaurants and bars (1 additional restaurant, bar & lounge called ‘The Oasis’ is also available exclusively for Signature guests). Foodies and lovers of gourmet experiences can indulge their taste buds with a culinary journey from Asian to Western, Mediterranean to Continental cuisine on offer at the resort.
