Blossom is on the trees, morning sunshine makes getting out of bed 10 times easier and you’ve at least begun to think about honing in that bikini body of yours. These are just three reasons that mean summer is OFFICIALLY here. Like the rest of the world, I am looking forward to jetting off somewhere sunny this summer. But unlike the rest of the world, I am not prepared to do it just once!
This Summer I have managed to line up one getaway for each of the glorious summer months. Granted, I will be working on two of them, but I love travelling so much that press trips never feel like work to me. Here’s how my summer is looking and why I am visiting each destination on my list.
1. June – The Summer Detox
A Spa Detox Trip to The Alpina Gstaad
The most spontaneous of my summer trips is just one week away, where I will be be going to Gstaad for a mountain detox retreat at The Alpina Gstaad Hotel. As one of Switzerland’s most luxurious 5* hotels, I can’t wait to go and review it for myself. The famous Swiss resort easily operates at full occupancy in the winter months due to the near by ski resorts. Naturally, the summer months get a little quieter, so they have cleverly devised a range of spa and detox programmes to entice health-conscious holiday makers all year round. With the high altitude and fresh mountain air, they are in a perfect position sell themselves as a purifying getaway. A brilliant idea if you ask me.
The Alpina Gstaad has it’s very own Six Senses Spa, which I have heard amazing things about. With a detox itinerary including workouts, yoga, mountain hikes, a tailor made Alpina Life diet and purifying spa treatments, I am hoping to leave feeling a million dollars (and be in tip top shape ready for my next stop!)
My trip to Gstaad is a press trip I am going on for my freelance travel writing courtesty of PRCo UK.
2. July -The Party Week
The Ultimate Party Week in Ibiza- July
This summer will include my first ever trip to the famous white isle. Me and my friends are still in our early twenties so we figured there is no better time to go and experience the famous clubbing mecca than now – before we’re old and grey! I am going in a group of 6 boys and 6 girls, all of which are my best best friends. We’ve hired a villa in the hills near the Old Town, which has the most gorgeous views.
The trip is going to be amazing and we have a whole itinerary planned out for the best boat trips, day parties and club nights to hit during our week there. A little extra detox may be necessary after this week. First stop Ocean Beach Club!
My Ibiza trip is a personal holiday with no connections to work, but have no fear, I will be blogging all about it and we have a GoPro to capture all of the action!
3. August – The Ultimate Chill Out
My First Caribbean Adventure
My only long-haul travel adventure this summer comes in the form of a blissful week in The Caribbean, ensuring I see the summer out in style! Having never been to the Caribbean, this trip will be yet another travel first for me.
After a week of partying in Ibiza, I cannot wait to unwind and get a taste of Island Life during one week at the Four Seasons, St Nevis. The Four Seasons is the most luxurious hotel on the whole island, and is actually the only resort. St Nevis is a stunning volcanic island which sits next to it’s big brother St Kitts. The explorer in me can’t wait to get my hiking boots on and discover the island’s volcanoes and waterfalls, as well as relaxing on the beach of course! To find out more about my trip to St Nevis, read my Caribbean Dreaming Blog Post.

With so many exciting travel plans, I have a feeling that Summer 2014 is going to be the best yet! I am pretty chuffed with my line up and cannot wait to tell you all about my adventures.

How incredible that you’ll be staying at the Four Seasons all as part of a press trip – just a bit jealous!! Have a wonderful time and look forward to seeing the updates as the Carribean is one of the parts of the world I’ve not been to before!
Hi Shika, I know it’s amazing, I am a very lucky lady! I will be sure to be blogging all about it during and after the trip. I have never been to the Caribbean either before so I am very excited. Thanks for your comment.
Have an amazing time at the spa!
These all sound amazing! I had the best time in Ibiza – me and my girls went for our 21st birthdays and saw Snoop Dogg live in Amnesia – amazing!! I’m holding off on all travel this summer, sticking to weekends away and lots of festivals to save the pennies for a big backpacking tour next year 🙂
