Indulge in romance and wellness with Amari in the idyllic Maldives and blissful Thailand ( 04 December 2017 )

With the New Year fast approaching, now is the perfect time to book a romantic retreat with Amari to escape the UK winter and rejuvenate after the festive period. Choose the glistening paradise of the Maldives with Amari Havodda Maldives or the beautiful golden beaches of Thailand with resorts including Amari Vogue Krabi, from the hotel brand committed to creating memorable guest experiences and showcasing warm Asian hospitality.

Amari Havodda Maldives

Tucked away in the Indian Ocean, on one of the most preserved atolls in the archipelago, there is nowhere quite like Amari Havodda Maldives for natural simplicity and romance. Situated on a private island offering 120 guest villas including beachfront and signature Maldivian overwater villas, guests can swap their hectic schedules for a serene picturesque backdrop.

On stilts over turquoise waters, the overwater villas are designed with romance in mind, featuring a private terrace with outdoor daybed and hammock, perfect for lounging in the sun sipping champagne. Steps leading directly to the ocean create a sense of adventure whilst maintaining the upmost privacy. As the sun sets, unwind in the open-air bathtub to the sound of the lapping waves or for the ultimate overwater experience, take a dip in a private infinity pool overlooking the shimmering ocean.

Amari’s signature Breeze Spa revolves around the philosophy that happiness is the foundation for wellness, with the Breeze experience designed to refresh and reset weary travellers, preparing them to take on the world when they leave. Breeze Spa at Amari Havodda Maldives includes couples’ treatment villas with a private terrace and garden views. Couples can experience a Signature Mood Massage, designed to create the exact mood desired - from ‘relaxed’ to ‘energised’.

Valid for travel 11 - 19 February 2018. Book by 22 December 2017.

Amari Vogue Krabi

 Travel to Thailand for a remedy to the UK’s bleak winter and experience the country’s kaleidoscope of turquoise waters, emerald bays and buzzing culture. An intimate 57-room resort dotted on the sandy white shores of Tub Kaek Beach, Amari Vogue Krabi, encourages complete rest and relaxation, featuring spacious Spa Suites ideal for the ultimate spa getaway. 

Guests can let the stresses of the festive season fade away whilst enjoying a Breeze Spa treatment without having to leave the privacy of their own space. The suites combine a deluxe guest room with an en-suite spa treatment room, and a private balcony overlooking the ocean or the garden.

With a menu carefully designed to combine the best of Thai, Asian and Western healing concepts, expertly trained therapists apply the exact blend of healing touch and natural ingredients to leave mind, body and soul revived. Treatments range from soothing massages inspired by the brand’s Thai roots to body treatments showcasing Breeze’s sense of fun, from the ‘Thai Delight’ scrubbing mask featuring soothing jasmine and refreshing melon, to ‘Mango Sticky Rice Body Scrub’ – a dessert treat for the body infused with mango butter, creamy coconut and rice to leave skin feeling nourished.

For a truly romantic experience after an afternoon at the spa, spend long evenings soaking in the outdoor Jacuzzi of the Grand Deluxe Jacuzzi rooms, admiring the iconic rock formations of Thailand standing majestically in the distance.

TESTIMONIAL

The Times’ fashion department has worked with Hills Balfour on several occasions. They are one of the few travel PR specialists that approach us with creative and innovative ideas for features, news and fashion shoots. I’m  impressed by how their reach extends beyond travel journalism and I’d be more than happy to recommend them to any of my colleagues and  look forward to working with them more in the future.
