We have hotels, room types – even islands in the Maldives – exclusive to Kuoni guests in the UK. You can also enjoy exclusive extras when you book selected holidays with us. If you love being pampered with massages, beach dinners and room upgrades, here are a few of our favourite resorts where you’ll get the star treatment.
A complimentary 75-minute massage
Where? Rayavadee, Thailand
This one-of-a-kind Thailand retreat has natural eye candy every way you turn, nestled between Krabi’s dizzying limestone cliffs and turquoise waters. You can prop yourself by the pool and drink in the dramatic scenery, taste your way around the top-class restaurants or simply hideaway in your gorgeous, pavilion-style room hidden among the coconut trees. The setting alone should be enough to soothe life’s stresses, but if you stay for seven nights or more, you can take tropical relaxation one step further with your choice of 75-minute massage. We recommend the Ravavadee hot stone massage, which uses heated basalt and coloured chakra stones to relax the body.
An authentic cooking class
Where? Long Beach, Mauritius
If you’d like a holiday with a good balance of beach bliss and immersive activities, Long Beach has both in spades. If you choose, you can do nothing more than relax by the pool or on the sweeping sandy beach, where dedicated butlers are on hand to bring icy drinks to your lounger and even clean your sunglasses. But there’s also plenty to do for those who get restless. Fitness fans will be in their element with wellness offerings from calming sunrise yoga to energetic Zumba classes. We love their hands-on experiences, like the cocktail-making masterclass, art workshop and beat-spinning sessions with the resident DJ. To get your creative juices flowing, we’ve included a Mauritian cooking class for stays of seven nights or more, which starts with a trip to the local market and ends with a delicious feast of your homemade dishes.
A beach dinner under the stars
Where? Makunudu Island, Maldives
This tiny gem is a rare find, as it's one of the few Maldives resorts that have shunned modernity for a more stripped-back island experience. Secluded, simple and serene, there are just 36 rustic bungalows, one restaurant, a bar and an excellent house reef. There are no distractions other than the calls of a castaway island, so it's the perfect place to reconnect with nature – and your loved one. For the ultimate romantic evening, we've included a private candlelit dinner where you'll dine on boat-fresh seafood and listen to the waves before retreating to a hammock together to star gaze. Plus, if you're travelling here on your honeymoon, you'll be spoiled with an array of little extras such as a snorkelling trip, wine and fruit in your room and a couples' massage.
A three-course dinner and a room upgrade
Where? Kalima Resort & Villas Khao Lak, Thailand
Celebrate your anniversary or honeymoon on the dreamy beaches of Khao Lak, and you’re in for a treat. At Kalima Resort & Villas Khao Lak, a sleek design hotel nestled between mangroves and the ocean, you’ll be upgraded to a stylish Grand Deluxe Room with a spa tub on the balcony – best enjoyed with bubbles, rose petals and a bottle of fizz to share. This unique resort is worthy of a special occasion with its luxe rooms, infinity pool and tranquil spa, but it’s also a great spot for snorkellers and divers as the marine mecca of the Similan Islands is just a short boat ride away. Whether you come here for romance or adventures underwater, all guests staying a minimum of seven nights will receive a three-course dinner in the beach restaurant – we recommend the soft-shell crab curry followed by their homemade ice cream.
A complimentary massage
Where? Bel Jou, Saint Lucia
Small but perfectly formed, this hilltop adults-only hideaway is full of Caribbean charm. With just 76 rooms, there’s an intimate and friendly atmosphere that’s hard to find at the island’s larger hotel complexes. Nothing is too much trouble for the attentive staff, who’ll top your glass up without being asked and will remember you by name. In between enjoying rum tasting sessions, bottomless cocktails by the pool and trips out exploring the island, sneak off to the Sugar Cane Spa, where you’ll enjoy a therapeutic 30-minute massage on the house.
