If summer still seems a long way off, your daydreams may be taking you to sandy beaches kissed by turquoise seas and feasting on fresh fish beneath swaying palms.
So why not consider taking a holiday somewhere warm, sunny and deliciously exotic this Easter?
Travelbag has specialised in tailor-made holidays across the world for more than 35 years and continues to prove that you don’t have to pay a premium price for a luxury holiday.
Its travel experts, who will personally look after your holiday from beginning to end, have come up with a few of their favourite suggestions for an idyllic spring break.
Whichever destination you choose, Travelbag will take care of your flights and transfers and cater for any preferences you have for excursions or activities.
An enticing blend of tea plantations, temples and swathes of unspoilt sands, lush Sri Lanka is one of the best-value exotic destinations.
Easter falls towards the end of the main drier season so is ideal for exploring and relaxing in daytime temperatures in the upper 20s.
Bentota is a resort town on the Indian Ocean with the advantage of a beautiful calm lagoon for water sports and boat trips along the river. The Kande Viharaya temple with its giant Buddha is nearby, as are botanic gardens.
Travelbag’s recommended Bentota hotel is the five-star Vivanta by Taj, set on arguably the south-west coast’s most alluring beach. This recently upgraded hotel boasts a freeform swimming pool, Indian-inspired spa and several restaurants including one specialising in seafood. You can walk along the shore to the stunning spit of land known as Paradise Island.
There is no tropical sanctuary quite like the Maldives – a collection of castaway islands, each enveloped by a ring of powder-blue water and white sands.
Over Easter, the coral atolls usually enjoy wonderful weather with the seas at their warmest and clearest, ideal for the diving and snorkelling for which the Maldives are renowned.
With so many islands, which do you choose? Travelbag recommends the five-star Sheraton Full Moon Resort & Spa, which offers the best of all worlds. This sumptuous resort on a private island has that essential “miles from anywhere” ambience, yet is only a 15-minute speedboat ride from the airport.
There’s a choice of beach cottages among the greenery and delightful overwater villas, along with seven restaurants and bars, a spa and water sports. Day trips to the Maldives’ vibrant capital Malé provide an enjoyable contrast.
If any island offers something for everyone, it’s Barbados. Exquisite beaches, romantic restaurants, great shopping and lively nightlife are all in abundance, yet there are also charming plantation houses, verdant rainforests and even caves to visit.
Come at Easter for fine, sunny weather with lower humidity – plus the chance to attend the buzzing Oistins Fish Festival, fusing food and music, and the Easter Day pop-up village that’s part of the island’s Sugar & Rum Season.
Travelbag’s Caribbean experts love the Sugar Cane Hotel & Spa. This tranquil four-star, adults-only resort above the manicured west coast is built in Mediterranean style. It has spacious suites, two restaurants and an award-winning spa, and offers nature walks and a free shuttle to the nearby beach.
