FINDING YOUR MOJO AT THE KURHOTEL SKODSBORG

With a matador-like swipe of the towel, our ‘GusMester’ (Mist Master) Matthias, directs a blast of hot, scented air towards our perspiring limbs within the confines of the sauna cabin. This form of aromatherapy is followed by a dip in the cold waters of the Oresund Strait between Denmark and Sweden, sending the endorphins into overdrive, giving an almost instantaneous feeling of elation and renewed vitality. This is ‘SaunaGus’, just one of the signature activities available at Denmark’s leading Spa hotel and part of a holistic approach towards health, well-being and luxury.

La Residence Hotel South Africa - Your Search For The One Is Over

Finding The One isn’t always fairy-tale straight-forward. It takes patience, searching (and soul-searching). It means experiencing the not-so-right, the you’ve-got-potential, the what-on-earth-was-I-thinking?! But they always say, ‘You know when it's The One’. And I knew.

Cothay Manor Medieval House & Gardens In Somerset

Cothay Manor Medieval House & Gardens In Somerset

We seemed to be driving forever down single track lanes with high hedges on either side, but we had been warned that one mile might feel more like ten. Then there it was tucked away on the border between Somerset and Devon; a fairy tale semi-moated house with ducks floating on the lake in the front. Just like the sleeping beauty when the veil has been lifted and all is revealed.
