Avoid the volatile weather at home

30 Jun 2016 - If the volatile weather in Blighty has you yearning for sunnier shores, consider a holiday at Aldemar Resorts in Crete, Rhodes or the west Peloponnese.

If you feel the need to take some time out from life (post referendum results) and truly get away from it all, Aldemar Resorts offer the perfect retreat. Each of the six deluxe properties in Crete, Rhodes and the west Peloponnese, are all situated on a substantial stretch of beach - perfect for watching the sun rise and set each day.

Once you have cleansed your mind, cleanse your body. The food at Aldemar hotels is based on the traditional Greek diet and the emphasis is on fresh fish, fruit and vegetables and of course plenty of Greek salad. Even better, the three properties on Crete and the two on the Greece’s mainland, the west Peloponnese have access to award-winning Thalasso Spas: the Royal Mare Thalasso Spa in Crete and the Royal Olympian Sa & Thalasso in the west Peloponnese with a range of relaxing treatments and massages. The Zen-like décor makes it the perfect place to unwind, but if you’re still finding it difficult to clear your mind try the New Energy programme.

The packages of treatments (4 per day) are designed to ease fatigue and make your body feel like new. Included in the New Energy programme are sessions in the Aquagym and AquaRoyal pool where jets of water knead and tone your muscles, an invigorating massage or seaweed wrap and an Airjet Bath, plus relaxing massage with organic essential oils. Prices for two-days with a total of 8 treatments, costs £240.

A seven night stay at the 5-star Aldemar Royal Mare start from £797 per person, based on two sharing a room on bed and breakfast. And if you can’t get away this month, head out in September or October, or book early for 2017. To book, call Planet Holidays on 01438 841 270 or visit
