It's not quite on the other side of the world but it's just far enough away from home to truly feel an escape from reality. With mid-haul holidays, you could be enjoying the sun on your face and the sand beneath your feet in only a few hours. Whether it's Egypt or Turkey you fancy, get ready for utter relaxation. Trust us, it'll be delightful.

What is a luxury holiday?

A luxury holiday can be all sorts of things. Think swim-up rooms, relaxing spas, private beaches, infinity pools and EVEN more. Partner this with top-notch service, attention to detail and that WOW factor, and then you have your luxury holiday. With our range of five-star resorts across many destinations, both short-haul and long-haul, you're spoilt for choice when it comes to picking your next luxury jolly.

Where is the most luxurious holiday destination?

Luxury can be found around the world. Whether you're fancying a short-haul trip to the Balearics or going a bit further afield to the Maldives, we have a beautiful selection of ideal hotels for your search for a bit of luxury and relaxation. Think spas, infinity pools, white sand beaches and oceans so crystal blue we could just sit and stare at them all day. We also have a great selection of five-star resorts in the likes of Turkey, Greece and Spain.

Do all luxury holidays have long flights?

A lot of luxury holidays are in long-haul destinations that offer paradisical settings such as Barbados or the Dominican Republic. This means a longer flight time to get to where you want to get (but trust us, it's definitely worth it once you get there).

However, luxury can also be found closer to home. With beautiful five-star resorts across our short-haul and mid-haul destinations, you don't have to go further to get what you want. With gorgeous resorts in Greece, Turkey and more, that slice of luxury you long for may just be closer than you think.

Where do celebrities go on holiday?

Well, we're not paps but we kind of have a bit of the down low on where some celebs head on their holidays. We're talking about Sofia Vergara in Mykonos, Rihanna in Barbados or Gwenyth Paltrow in Majorca. Or you can head to one of our luxurious Maldives resorts and live like a celeb yourself.

We've got plenty more active holidays to choose from
