22 July 2011

Want your minibreak to be something you’ll be talking about for months, no, years to come? Drum roll please, today Grazia Travel Club launches Watercooler Weekends, a collection 14 iconic destinations at the coolest hotels in town. And what’s more, we’ve negotiated some amazing rates, giving you more luxe for less bucks!

The Standard, Miami

How about a long weekend in New York, staying at the super Standard, the hotel for the Fash Pack? Or the Standard in Miami, a spa hotel where you’re sure to spot a star in the steam room? 

Finca Cortesin, Andalucia

Or head for the Med, to the Bellevue in beautiful Dubrovnik – the best hotel in town and the best food in the city. You could also try the Finca Cortesin, one of the most exclusive hotels in Andalusia, right on the beach between Marbella and Sotogrande with five restaurants, amazing spa and even a golf course, if you’re feeling sporty! Alternatively head inland to our favourite Spanish city, Seville, where there’s the Hospes, a hotel that drips chic boutique understated glamour.

For a weekend of Italian chic we’ve selected ultra-sophisticated Capofaro on Salina in the Aeolian islands, the tiny chain of OMG beautiful islands off Sicily loved by the Jet Set. Or let us show you our Italian secret, Borga Egnazia in Puglia, a new resort on the Adriatic that takes luxury to a new level with its Vair Spa, set to become one of the leading spas in Europe.

Riad Farnatchi, Morocco

Set off on your own mini African adventure with a trip to Morocco – we’ll get you into the most exclusive Riad in Marrakesh, the Riad Farnatchi, that takes attention to detail to new levels with things like the complimentary djelaba and slippers bobouches (that’s Moroccan robes and slippers!) Or discover the breathtaking Atlas Mountains at the Kasbah Tumadot, Sir Richard Branson’s magnificent Moroccan retreat with its incredible infinity pool that melts into a view of snowcapped peaks and forested hillsides. 

Kasbah Tumadot, Atlas Mountains

How about of shopping and sunbathing in glam Dubai?  Choose from The Address right in the centre of the action of the Downtown district or the superb Park Hyatt, right on the waterfront. For something that will totally amaze your friends how about a weekend living like an oligarch in the lap of Russian luxury in mysterious Moscow, staying at the Park Hyatt?

Oooh, we’re packing our bags as we speak! See you Monday!
