There is nothing quite like the feel of sand beneath your feet to tell you that you’ve finally arrived at optimum out-of-office bliss.
Thailand is synonymous with pristine, white beaches and impossibly blue lagoons, and it’s a status quo very much supported by the three island idylls of The Surin Phuket, Casa de la Flora and The Library. Moving over to Mauritius’ laid-back retreat Shanti Maurice – A Nira Resort perfectly frames the unspoiled, wild beauty of the southern shore, a style shared by Tulum’s Papaya Playa Project where simple, beachside casitas blur the lines between inside and out. Over in Turkey, the understated chic of Maçakizi reigns supreme on the Bodrum Peninsula, while the crashing Atlantic waves set the backdrop to surfer’s paradise Memmo Baleeira in Sagres, Portugal.
