Swanky London hotels and celebrity-chef gastropubs caught my eye on home turf this week, though I’m also tempted to pop over to "The Sound of Music" country and inhale pristine mountain air or jet off to the the Maldives’ South Male Atoll beaches.
£199 -- Exclusive 5-Star London Hotel w/Champagne & Extras
Rooms alone normally cost over £350 at this classy property in South Kensington. The overnight stay includes a night in a newly refurbished room and breakfast, plus you get to enjoy a free glass of bubbly.
£35 -- London: Waterfront Gordon Ramsay Dining for 2
Gordon Ramsay's The Narrow
Sometimes views trump the food at waterside restaurants, but in this case both impress: Tuck into a seafood lunch with wine and a front-row seat facing the Thames at Mr Ramsay’s Docklands gastropub, The Narrow.
£399 -- Summer Austria Break w/Meals & Outdoor Activities
There’s a hefty £300 savings on this Alpine deal at a 4-star hotel in Mayrhofen. The week-long package features daily breakfast, dinner and packed lunches, plus afternoon cake -- perfect to recharge after the free outdoor activities like guided walks, bike tours and slack-lining. What’s that last bit? It’s like tight-rope walking but the rope isn’t, you know, tight.
£899 -- Maldives Beach Week, £209 Off & Free All-Inc Upgrade
Perch on a sandy spot in the Indian Ocean for less than a grand, with speedboat transfers and flights on Emirates? Yes, really. Spend a week on tiny Biyadhoo Island with all your meals and drinks included, or opt for a 14-night package for £1199.
