Romance and luxury in the Italian capital, a unique jaunt to Asia and a rare peak-season Bulgarian ski bargain have all caught Caroline’s eye this week…
Ciao, Roma. We love you for your sultry Spanish Steps and impressive Colosseum, your decadent gelato and superb spaghetti, your stylish attire and the zip-zip of your Vespas all around town. But we want to experience it all from a luxury base in the centre of all the bustle, and frankly, we want to spend less on lodging and indulge in all the things that make you so irresistible. This deal is fantastic and costs less than half the normal price. We love it almost as much as we love Rome.
Sometimes a jaunt to Asia is just what you need to decompress. Take three nights in Kuala Lumpur, add a free city tour and then jet off to Borneo for a week-long luxury stay at the 5-star Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort. Our very own sun-and-luxury-worshipping website editor stayed here last year and when she returned she couldn’t stop raving about it.
We’re always on the hunt for bargain ski deals, but often find they include less-than-ideal dates when the snow is iffy, resorts that are only half open or a hotel in an undesirable location. But this Borovets package whisks you to the slopes in December and January and puts you in a 4-star hotel across the street from the chairlift for less than 300 quid. Now that’s what we Travelzooers call a slam-dunk deal.
