Let’s face it – the annual family holiday usually revolves around the kids, but sometimes, you need to be a bit selfish and have a break centred around you.
When you want to relax, an adults-only hotel can be the perfect escape. With no water slides or talent shows in sight, you can sit back and enjoy the silence of a secluded retreat.
Why not get away this year for a holiday of your own? Swap the kids pool for the sauna and make the most of these luxury adult-only hotels.
Located along the cliffs of Corfu sits the breath-taking Atlantica Grand Mediterraneo Resort. Surrounded by cypress and eucalyptus trees, you can enjoy gorgeous views of the Ionian Sea from your bedroom window.
After lazing all day by your own private pool, dine at one of the resort’s three restaurants with tasty Greek and Italian food on offer.
There’s also a spa and gym on site so you can enjoy a little me-time.
Escape to Cyprus for a peaceful retreat at the Sentido Thalassa Coral Bay. Sat on the west coast of the island, every room offers a sea view while the beach is just a stone’s throw away.

If you’re up for a little adventure, head up to Paphos Town and check out the Tombs of the Kings – a fascinating ancient burial site.
Want to really get away? Hop across the water to the ultimate paradise – the Caribbean.
Indulge yourself at the El Dorado Seaside Suites on Mexico’s Caribbean coast. Situated beside the beach and with a jacuzzi in every room, you’ll be living in the lap of luxury.

You can even have a candlelit dinner for two on the beach – what a treat.
