For every holiday experience and every budget, there is usually a hotel to accommodate. From traditional dwellings, sprawling manors to even underwater marvels, the choice is daunting.
A good hotel can be the lynchpin of your holiday, giving you a solid base for a successful trip. Choosing the right hotel can make things easier, from having a variety of food choices to a multitude of concierge services.
The Flexicover Team have come up with a selection of matched resorts and locations.
For all-inclusive – Baron Resort; Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt
Overlooking the Red Sea, this is a great hotel with its own private beach in the vicinity of the National Marine Park offering a variety of restaurants and bars to choose from with wide-ranging cuisines from Middle Eastern to Far Eastern and Italian. With 12 months of sunshine, world-renowned water sports activities and exotic excursions into the desert, there’s a lot to do for everyone. The resort also offers a free shuttle bus service into the built-up tourist oasis of Na’ama Bay, a shisha-lover’s paradise!
For foodies – Wynn Hotel; Las Vegas, USA
With over 20 bars and restaurants from casual to fine dining to even vegan, the luxury Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas really is a gourmand’s paradise! The range of options runs from sushi to Chinese, steak to seafood – an amazing array of choice for the foodie. Many of its establishments are multiple award winners for both food and design – Wazuzu even has a 27ft-long crystal dragon on the wall! With top chefs preparing your food daily, these gastronomic treats will appeal to any aficionado of food and drink.
For ‘value for money’ – Gardenia Park; Costa del Sol, Spain
Whilst Fuengirola isn’t scorching during the winter months, it’s still dry and very pleasant, so it makes a great winter getaway from our cold climes! The Gardenia Park Hotel is a great ‘value for money’ choice, particularly if travelling with the whole family. With indoor and outdoor pools for both adults and children, gardens, tennis courts, playgrounds, a sauna and jacuzzi, this location is hard to beat for a family break. And by being just 100m from Carvajal Playa beach, it has access to a great seafront location too!
For luxury - Mamounia Hotel; Marrakech, Morocco
After a three year refurbishment, La Mamounia Hotel has reopened as the absolute pinnacle of luxury. Stylish, charming and set in beautiful royal gardens, this palace boasts a fabulous twist of both modern and traditional elements. It is no surprise that Winston Churchill insisted on staying here! Located centrally in the Medina area, it’s worth a visit for a cocktail if your budget precludes you from an actual stay. The hotel also provides several quintessentially Moroccan experiences including guided tours of the city and helicopter rides over the Atlas Mountains. A great hotel that reflects the magical soul of the Red City!
For activities – The BodyHoliday LeSport; St Lucia
The BodyHoliday in St Lucia is a unique resort experience, set amongst 18 acres of tropical gardens and nestled between stunning natural scenery of mountains, rainforests and the clear blue sea!

Whether you’re an expert or simply want to learn a new hobby or sport, this Caribbean island is a great place to hone your skills! Fitness classes, tai-chi, meditation, circuit training, spin classes, tennis, golf lessons and water sports – enjoy all of these or simply relax by one of the resort’s 3 pools or on the beach!
For spa – Evason Hua Hin; Pranburi, Thailand
The Six Senses Earth Spa at the Evason Hua Hin is set in a serene environment around thatched pavilions, calming water pools and lush vegetation. Offering locally-inspired treatments, the resort brings a new dimension to holistic wellness in a natural eco-friendly environment.
