Eagles Villas Outdoor Pool

Review: Eagles Villas, Halkidiki, Greece

Eagles Palace and the new Eagles Villas form part of a family run resort in a stunning location just a few kilometres from Ouranoupolis, Halkidiki. In the shadow of Mount Athos, it’s the most incredible setting for one of Greece’s premier five-star resorts. Eagles Palace Hotel is where most of the action happens and sits right on the beach. Note, that the new Eagles Villas are slightly separated from the main hotel with an even more exclusive feel, situated up the hill with jaw-dropping views of the sea (more of that later). From water sports on the beach to the large pool and a host of fitness, cultural and relaxing activities, there’s plenty to do for everyone. The resort is family friendly (yes there are quite a few kids) but the kid’s club keeps them occupied most of the time. If you want to brush up on your Greek alphabet or Greek cooking skills, there’s a class. Take pilates or personal training too – it’s all covered in the daily activity schedule. The list is …

Review: L’Horizon Hotel & Spa, Jersey

THE HOTEL: Situated on the wide sweeping bay of St Brelades in Jersey, L’Horizon Hotel & Spa is everything a British resort should be. Friendly and welcoming it offers picturesque views of the sea, sand and open skies at every opportunity. Most rooms have a terrace with chairs and sea view to sit and admire the breath taking views. Modern, light and airy, the hotel is one of the Hand Picked Hotel Group’s three hotels in the Channel Islands. With a relaxed, laid back feel, you instantly switch into holiday mode and are completely at home. Dining options include the terrace on the sea wall which makes the most of regional seafood and locally sourced produce fare on offer. It’s a large hotel but you never feel crowded and can escape to the beach in minutes. Book a sea view room, you won’t regret it, waking up in true morning to the sound of the sea is worth every penny. THE SPA: Newly refurbished, the spa has had a £800,000 investment to extend the health …

Review: Cradle Mountain Lodge, Tasmania

THE HOTEL: Set in the alpine forests in the highlands of Tasmania, Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge is surrounded by bush, native trees and crystal clear air. Private cabins set amongst the trees are homely with a few creature comforts, but not five-star, but this adds to their rustic charm. On entering the cabins you are met with a heady scent of pine wood and the embers of the wood fire. You could hide away for days and simple gaze at the surrounding trees and wild roaming animals; we were visited by wallabies, wombats and possums during our stay. There’s no TV (a good thing) iPod dock, but the best soundtrack is to open the door and let the sounds of the bird drift in. It’s magical. The bathroom was modern and recently renovated and you will love the large bedroom with sofa in front of the fire and a verandah/terrace to read or enjoy the scenery. Most people visit Cradle Mountain for bush walking and I highly recommend a walk to Marion’s lookout or Crater …

Brilliant face masks

Once a week the general advice is to treat your skin to a face mask. Cleanse the skin, exfoliate and apply. Choose one according to what your skin needs – whether it’s to calm, nourish or reduce oil or regulate sebum. It’s an easy process and I always do it in the bath (although purists might suggest the heat from the bath counters the benefits). Below is my pick of three of the best face masks of the moment. ishga Exfoliating Face Mask This uses grains of milled seaweed to gently exfoliate too. It is packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and trace elements and is recognised for its ability to revitalize, repair, and moisturise giving a feeling of new skin. £35 – www.ishga.co.uk Elemis Post Shave Recovery Mask Designed specifically for men the Post Shave Recovery Mask is a fast-acting facial mask, that helps calm the irritation of blemishes and minor shaving nicks, whilst actively reducing skin sensitivity or shaving burn and restoring vital nutrients lost during shaving. £28 – www.timetospa.co.uk Spa Find Energizing Mud …
