Venetian retreats

The JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa launch their JW Retreats this month, a collection of exclusive hideaways located on Isola Delle Rose.

Leave the hustle and bustle of St Mark’s Square behind and sail, by private boat, to the island where the new JW Marriott resort is set among olive groves, a private garden, swimming pool and spectacular views over the sinking city’s skyline.

Enjoy bicycle rides around the hideaway, visit the Murano glass factory and try an on-site olive oil tasting while you visit.

Drive through

The Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel has announced a new partnership with BMW, offering guests the complimentary use of a BMW 7 Series, BMW 5 Series and BMW X5 models while they stay.

It’s all part of their “Suite Ride” package, which encourages holidaymakers to explore the Californian coastline.

Island taster

If you can’t quite stretch to a holiday in Sri Lanka this spring, try the next best thing.

The Resplendent Ceylon hotel’s Chef Jerome Tissera takes the reins at the Carousel restaurant in London from April 24th to May 5th in celebration of the island’s diverse cuisine. Enjoy a five-course taster menu of exotic produce from €40 per person.

Lodge living

For families who aren’t interested in the confines of a hotel suite this Easter break, consider holidaying in one of Castlemartyr’s Walled Garden Lodges. Choose from a two- or three-bed pad, complete with open-living, kitchen and dining areas.

With the woodland walks and castle ruins right outside and the five-star hotel’s fine dining, spa, golf course and leisure facilities at your doorstep, it’s the perfect home away from home break.

Stay from €211 per night for a minimum of two nights based on four people sharing a two-bedroom Walled Garden Lodge until April 2018;
