 A summer to remember

Create extraordinary memories this summer with a stay at one of Virgin Limited Edition’s luxury hotels and retreats. From the magic of an African safari to a relaxing villa break, there’s something for everyone to enjoy, and with a selection of hand-picked offers now is the time to book an unforgettable summer escape.

For travellers in search of adventure, Ulusaba Private Game Reserve offers the ultimate safari experience. During twice daily game drives guests will have the opportunity to spot the legendary Big Five guided by expert rangers in South Africa’s Sabi Sand Reserve.

The holiday of a lifetime awaits this summer at Mahali Mzuri where guests will have the chance to witness one of the seven ‘new’ wonders of the world – the Great Migration. Twice-daily game drives provide a front-row seat to this astonishing spectacle as over a million animals make an epic 1600 km journey through Kenya and Tanzania.

Summer is a fantastic time to discover Morocco’s Atlas Mountains with a stay at Kasbah Tamadot. While the city sizzles, this peaceful and secluded region is up to ten degrees cooler, ideal for poolside lounging or sipping ice-cold drinks in the shade. Those staying four nights or more between 1st June and 31st August can extend their getaway with one night free.

From gourmet dining to personalised beverage tasting, food enthusiasts will be in heaven at Mont Rochelle Hotel & Mountain Vineyard. Located in Franschhoek, guests can discover the delights of this unique corner of the Western Cape, as well as Mont Rochelle’s fascinating heritage. Between 1st May and 31st August 2017 guests staying 4 nights or more will enjoy their final night for free.

For an exceptional alpine getaway, look no further than The Lodge, Virgin Limited Edition’s Swiss mountain retreat. The stunning hillside location allows guests to explore Verbier’s sunny side with outdoor activities from hiking and mountain biking to spectacular paragliding adventures.

Nothing says summer quite like kicking back in the Mediterranean sunshine, and Son Bunyola is just the place to relax with friends and family. Located on the northwest coast of Mallorca, the estate boasts three stunning private villas offering tailored service in a spectacular setting.

It’s summer all year round in the British Virgin Islands and Necker Island’s Celebration Weeks are the perfect excuse for a sun-soaked vacation. This August and September guests can book a room for stays between 3 and 10 nights to experience a slice of Caribbean paradise without having to book the entire island.

Family moments

From half term breaks to summer escapes, Virgin Limited Edition has hand-picked a selection of incredible offers and unforgettable adventures for the family holiday of a lifetime.

Located in South Africa’s Sabi Sand Reserve, families visiting Ulusaba will have the chance to spot lions, leopards, elephants and many more species on twice-daily game drives, led by an expert team of rangers and trackers. The Cubs Club offers amazing activities for kids of all ages, including treasure hunts and traditional arts and crafts. There is even more reason to get the family together in this stunning safari setting as on selected dates throughout 2017, up to two cubs stay for free with one or more adults.

At Mahali Mzuri, children are known as ‘Little Warriors’ in recognition of Kenya’s rich Maasai traditions. Alongside twice-daily game drives, families can enjoy fun, tailored activities, including Maasai jumping competitions and visits to the local community. For the ultimate summer holiday adventure, families can experience one of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders, the Great Wildebeest Migration which takes place between July and September. For an extra slice of half-term fun in May and October, up to two kids stay free when sharing a tent with at least one adult.

Families looking for tailored service in a beautiful Balearic setting will love Son Bunyola. Located on Mallorca’s North West coast, there are three villas available for rental; three-bedroom Son Balagueret, four-bedroom Sa Terra Rotja and five-bedroom Sa Punta de S’Aguila. Each property has a private pool, a chef and concierge service and on selected dates in 2017, guests staying 7 nights or more will receive their final night for free.

 First look at Virgin Limited Edition’s Son Balagueret

Virgin Limited Edition’s newly-opened villa, Son Balagueret, is situated on the Son Bunyola Estate. It is spread over three floors and includes a secluded central courtyard, a private heated swimming pool and panoramic views over the estate and the dramatic coastline. The villa sleeps up to 6 people in three bedrooms, one of which is located in a unique and historic turret dating back to the 13th century. Rates start from EUR 13,095 for a 7 night stay.

The private estate, with its own gated entrance, is over 700 acres and is located in between Esporles and Banyalbufar on the Northwest coast of Mallorca. At the heart of the estate is an original Finca building dating back to the 1800’s surrounded by vines, citrus fruit trees, almond and olive trees.

You could take a dip in your private heated pool just steps away from your villa or play a spot of tennis on the nearby court (racquets and balls provided) – this is shared by all three villas. The estate is 3km×5km in size so perfect for a stroll to stretch your legs, or capture stunning ocean views with a coastal walk which starts from a pebble beach.
