Escape the January blues with Virgin Limited Edition

18th December 2016

Jet away and start your year in style with the Virgin Limited Edition collection of luxury hotels and retreats. Our secluded hideaways are the perfect antidote to the January blues; from detoxing in the spa to creating memories that you’ll treasure all year. Whatever you’re looking for, Virgin Limited Edition has everything you need for a spectacular start to 2017.

With temperatures in South Africa set to be hot in January, Ulusaba Private Game Reserve is the perfect setting for a little sunshine. Located in the Western sector of South Africa’s Sabi Sand Game Reserve, Ulusaba brings the thrill of adventure and safari traditions of Africa to life in an exclusive and luxurious setting. With over 13,500 hectares of unspoilt, game-rich bush, guests can enjoy twice-daily game drives with fully trained and experienced rangers and trackers.

There’s only one kind of blue we’re interested in this January and that is the stunning blue sea surrounding Necker Island; perfect for taking a dip or trying out exciting watersports. The island is usually hired exclusively for up to 34 people, but for a limited time in the New Year smaller groups and couples will be able to book individual rooms during our Celebration Week. Whether it’s a short and sweet stay or a blowout holiday, we’ve got you covered with options for stays of 3 – 9 nights between 3rd and 11th January 2017. Rates per couple start from USD $12,840 (at today’s exchange rate £10,276) based on a three night stay in a Great House room.

Ski bunnies looking to start 2017 on the slopes will love a winter break at The Lodge in Verbier, Switzerland. The ski chalet comes complete with nine stunning bedrooms and suites, an indoor pool, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis and a friendly, experienced team. From 15th -22nd January 2017 The Lodge opens its doors for a ‘Hotel Week’ when individual rooms can be booked. With rates from CHF 5,055 (at today’s exchange rate £3,945) per couple for a 3-night stay, it’s the perfect way to experience all the luxuries of The Lodge without hiring the whole chalet.
