There are no two ways about it: when this is over, we’ll all need a holiday, and or your first big break on the other side should be just right. The question is, which type of holiday is best suited to your personality, and where in the world should you go? For the answers, you’ve come to the right place. Choose the style of holiday you lean towards from the headings below and see what kind of luxury travel experience the experts at Kenwood Travel would recommend. We assure you, it’ll be a match made in heaven.

Travel Type: Active Adventure

Whilst for many people, a holiday is a chance to reduce your pace, you’d perhaps argue the opposite. Adrenaline-hungry and prepared to go to dizzying new heights at breakneck speed to gain the clearest perspective on a new destination, you are in it for the experience. Your bucket list is always growing longer somehow despite you making a concerted effort to cross things off. For you, nothing could be worse than sitting by the pool all day, although you will wake up at the crack of dawn to get a few lengths in.

For the active adventurer who is always on the move, we recommend a visit to Elephant Hills Luxury Tented Jungle Camp in Thailand’s largest southern rainforest area. Here you can really live out your wildest dreams, spending your time lake-swimming, jungle-trekking, kayaking, and, of course, meeting the elephants themselves. For these particular gentle giants, elephant riding is not on the agenda – it’s instead been swapped with safer, more nurturing, and cruelty-free interactions, such as feeding, cleaning, or simply observing them.

Travel Type: Lazy Luxury

If you fall into this category, you’re in it for pure indulgence and you’re proud of it. Feeling like royalty is paramount to your holiday experience going off without a hitch. Features you look out for include a sumptuous spa, five-star cuisine, suites that strive for perfection and, most importantly, the sky-high level of service that means you don’t have to lift a finger for the duration of your stay. You want that wow factor and whilst activities are important, you should also just be able to have an incredible holiday without even leaving your suite.

For all of the above and then some, we’re turning to what is perhaps the ultimate in lazy luxury: the Maldives. The deluxe all-inclusive sanctuary that is Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa is the ideal destination for those who take ‘taking a break’ seriously. Reserve an over-water villa with a private pool or Jacuzzi and do as much or as little as you like. With delicious, chef-prepared meals delivered straight to your door and a fully stocked mini-bar, you can even stay put and let the luxury perks come to you.

Travel Type: Party Paradise

You’re a social butterfly with an eye for amenities (especially bar-shaped ones). With cocktails a-flowing and beats a-blasting the perfectly executed holiday is like having all your Christmases and birthdays come at once: a super-celebration where atmosphere and entertainment is everything. Letting your hair down is the priority here, and the ideal location for you has buckets (and spades) of barefoot charm, plenty of vibrant personality, and an enviable events schedule. 

For you, we recommend the ever-friendly Caribbean. Head straight to Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, where you’ll find entertainment facilities galore in an unbelievable beach setting. Fully stocked lounges and bars, big-ticket concerts and shows, a 14,000 square foot nightclub, and an onsite casino are just some of the amazing amenities you’ll totally fall for. Unique to Hard Rock, you can even reserve a Fender guitar for your room, or join a band and take to the stage. Now that’s rock star treatment.

Travel Type: Short-haul Chic

For you, a deluxe destination holiday doesn’t necessarily require an exhausting journey book-ending the fun part. You’re in it for the discoveries to be had practically on your doorstep – but that doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice on luxury. You’re a connoisseur of five-star coastal hideouts, island escapes, and sophisticated resorts, but if the flight is under five hours long, it’s a massive bonus. Whether it’s a city break with opulent extras, or a European beach retreat, you are very much into it.

For a believer in the allure and romance of a European classic, we recommend you make a beeline for Domes Zeen Chania on the Greek island of Crete. A total embodiment of modern Mediterranean glamour, this resort simply screams high quality, effortless style and contemporary cool. Did we mention the average flight from London takes just 3 hours 45 minutes? If that alone isn’t enough to tempt you, the facilities will: a sleek, jungle-themed spa, gorgeous swimming pool, and a dedicated concierge team who can help with arranging experiences from wine tasting to ceramics workshops.

Travel Type: Sun Seeker

You’re a sunshine addict with one main prerogative: escaping the usual British climate and swapping it for warmer climes, perhaps achieving a bronzed body in the process. You love bright days with thermometer-topping temperatures, sun-kissed beaches, and balmy evenings. You’re at your most relaxed on holiday – luxuriating poolside on the sun loungers, enjoying the tepid waters of the ocean, and sharing meals and refreshing drinks that stretch long into the night.

For you, we’re going JA all the way. JA The Resort comprises three fabulous all-inclusive hotels (JA Palm Tree Court, JA Beach Hotel and JA Lake View Hotel) in Dubai. With 800 metres of private beach, seven temperature-controlled swimming pools with swim-up bars, a water sports centre and an 85-berth full service marina for boat trips, there is plenty of opportunity here to catch some rays. Dubai is warm year-round with weather ranging from sultry to sizzling and an average of 8-10 hours of sunshine a day, so the odds are stacked in your favour if you want that all-round perfect tan.

Travel Type: Family First 

Admittedly it sounds a little cheesy, but your holidays are all about making memories with your family. You feel at your best when you’re discovering something new together, plus you’d just feel plain guilty leaving the little ones at home. Having said that, babysitting services and kids clubs don’t go amiss whilst you’re away. You’re always looking for the best balance of an exciting destination to spark imaginations indiscriminate of age, without sacrificing those all-important family-friendly amenities.

Is there really a more family-friendly destination than Orlando, Florida? Anyone looking to gain major bonus points with their kids should look no further than the theme park capital of the world. Let’s face it – you’d be just as excited as them anyway. Staying at Walt Disney World Resort will put you right at the heart of the action, so you’re best-placed to maximise your time in the most magical place on earth. Amazing amenities at the Disney hotels range from multiple swimming pools and playgrounds, to outdoor cinema screenings and scheduled kids activities.
