Five National Day Getaways that are an Easy Flight Away

TravelPost Category - TravelTravel - Post Category - By CountryBy Country

National Day is just around the corner, mama! Family travel experts Mr and Mrs Smith let you know five quick getaways you can take

Hoping to make the most of August 9 with an impromptu trip to somewhere special? Reward yourself on National Day with a luxurious retreat that doesn’t involve long-haul flights or complicated connections – travel experts Mr & Mrs Smith have lined up five exceptionally seductive hotels no more than a few hours from the Lion City.

The Pavilions, Phuket, Phuket, Thailand

Bold colours and breathtaking views are the order of the day at the Pavilions, an elegant, exclusive and child-free getaway that promises the romantic escape you were searching for. Ensconce yourselves in the seductive confines of a luxury pool villa where you can eat, sleep and skinny dip in total privacy. Should you decide to emerge from your lair, there’s a fine restaurant and three must-visit bars, plus the thrills of Phuket on your doorstep. The hotel will organise activities such as snorkeling, diving, elephant trekking, horse riding, market and temple tours, and private yoga, too.

Smith extra: A one-hour Pavilions oil massage for two

An Lam Retreats Saigon River, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

This quiet Saigon sanctuary was once furniture-maker Mr Lam’s private home: you’ll be wishing you lived here, too, thanks to the leafy gardens, deliciously zingy Vietnamese food, and river-facing rooms. Nobody goes home without enjoying stellar views of the surroundings because each room comes with a balcony, terrace or garden. As you’d expect from a renowned designer, An Lam Saigon River harbours plenty of statement pieces: its nooks are filled with stylish rattan chairs and bright cushions. If you’re mad enough to leave the hotel, there’s a speedboat on hand to whoosh you to the city centre in 15 minutes.

Smith extra: A bottle of sparkling wine upon arrival plus the restaurant’s best table (right by the river) reserved for you each night

The Lodhi, Delhi, India

Courtyards, reflecting pools and intricately carved stone screens – all features of the Lodhi’s vast gardens – help turn this thoroughly modern building into an intimate space away from the bustle of New Delhi. There are sensational city views from the elegantly minimalist rooms, and the tranquil Lodhi Spa offers Ayurvedic, Asian and Western treatments in eight private areas. And when it’s time to hone your body, you’ll find a top-drawer salon, gym, Pilates studio, hammam, and tennis and squash courts spread out across this cool three-hectare estate.

Smith extra: A jet-lag or foot massage each for two guests on arrival

The Amala Hotel, Bali, Indonesia

A serene bamboo forest surrounds the Amala, a holistic escape hidden in the heart of beachside Seminyak – Bali’s chic shopping and dining district – and just a 15-minute drive from the airport. Twelve modern thatched-roof pads confer all the pleasures of a sprawling Balinese villa on a romantic, intimate scale. Dine on raw, vegetarian or indulgent cuisine after yoga, t’ai chi or water Pilates, then reward yourself with a restorative massage. A Masters-in-Residence programme offers the services of Bali’s finest wellness gurus and healing hands.

Smith extra: Healthy canapés and a fruit platter on arrival; and a romantic candlelit bath experience set up in your room (not valid for Deluxe Rooms)

The PuLi Hotel and Spa, Shanghai, China

Secluded in quietude behind reclaimed grey brick walls, Shanghai’s The PuLi Hotel and Spa is a sophisticated retreat in one of the world’s most exciting cities. Pared-back contemporary design teamed with seductive oriental accents and handsome dining and drinking dens make this a must for savvy travellers. Thai spa specialists Anantara lend their healing hands to PuLi’s pampering, dishing out some of the best massages in town – many of them tea-themed. Dine at Jing’An park, the hotel’s award-winning restaurant, and savour high-quality (and highly interesting) dishes such as black cod with shiitake mushrooms.

Smith extra: Fresh fruit and chocolates on arrival

With Mr & Mrs Smith you’ll enjoy our best-price guarantee, as well as a little something extra on arrival at every hotel. To book, call toll free at 800 905 326 or visit mrandmrssmith.com.
