Audley Travel has brought out a new expanded Hidden Beaches brochure with inspirational options for winter sun trips, combining idyllic beaches with a touch of exploration.
New highlights include:
Private crewed yacht charter in the Caribbean
A private crewed yacht charter allows you the ultimate luxury of total flexibility, travelling at your own pace and visiting deserted coves and empty beaches that you simply couldn’t get to any other way.
Yacht charters are available from Grenada, Saint Lucia and the British Virgin Islands with a minimum four night stay. For example, a nine night trip combining four nights in Antigua with four nights yacht charter from Grenada costs from £5,293 per person, including return flights, airport transfers, four nights in an Antigua hotel including breakfast and four nights aboard a private crewed yacht charter, all-inclusive.
Immerse yourself in the local community in Indonesia
Set in a dramatic location on the remote island of Sumba with its ancient tribal culture, Nihiwatu offers guests luxury while supporting the local community. Guests are encouraged to help out in the local schools, visit megalithic burial sites and learn about the local culture. They can also tackle the renowned surf beach, go horse riding across the sand, enjoy lavish meals or simply lounge by their private pool. A 12 night trip costs from £5,491 per person to include return flights, airport transfers, three nights at Samaya Seminyak including breakfast and seven nights at Nihiwatu full board.
Good value in Vietnam
For those looking to do lots of activities without having to pay out each time, Angsana Lang Co in central Vietnam could be the answer. Up to ten free activities are included each day with choices such as snorkelling, windsurfing, kayaking, jet-skiing, sailing and golf. There’s also an enormous meandering pool, a beautiful spa and the historic cities of Hue and Hoi An close by. A 12 night trip costs from £2,297 per person to include return flights, airport transfers, three nights in Saigon including breakfasts, excursions and seven nights at Angsana Lang Co including breakfast.
As a complete contrast to the large international resorts that the island is known for, Audley have introduced Seapoint Boutique Hotel, which has just 22 rooms and a distinctive modern beach house design. There is a lovely beachfront pool, a spa and a range of water sports on offer including paddle boarding, windsurfing, sailing and kayaking. There is also a complimentary snorkelling excursion daily and bikes are free to borrow. The hotel only allows children aged 13 years upwards so it is a good option for couples wanting a child-free break. A 13 night trip costs from £2,780 per person to include return flights, airport transfers, three nights on a safari in South Africa including full board, game drives and seven nights at Seapoint Boutique Hotel including half board.
New Anantara in Sri Lanka
The newly opened Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle is set on a rocky outcrop overlooking one of Sri Lanka’s most beautiful beaches. Audley suggest combining a few days discovering the wildlife of Yala National Park with time on the beach. A 13 night trip costs from £3,858 per person to include return flights, airport transfers, three nights at Yala National Park all-inclusive including game drives and seven nights at Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle.
