Welcome to our latest newsletter and we hope you are all contuniung to keep safe and well.
Did you catch BBC2’s Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby last week, featuring the beautiful Jade Mountain in St Lucia? If you missed it, we’d highly recommend it on catch-up as it was the perfect armchair escapism! Jade Mountain is a luxury resort renowned for its sensational views of the Pitons from each of the hotel’s suites – all of which have only 3 walls. The 4th wall is missing to allow for breath-taking views over the ocean and the magestic Pitons – you really have to watch it to understand how superb it is. Claire and I had goosebumps and big smiles on our faces just watching the friendly St Lucian staff, the care & attention surrounding the cuisine, the crystal clear sea, the wonderful views and every other detail that goes into making sure each guests’ stay is truly memorable.
Watching this episode reconfirmed our love for luxury travel and like the team at Jade Mountain, we make sure your experience with us is one that makes a difference. We’ll suggest the most suitable hotels, resorts or private villas based on your past holidays and our own personal experience. We have close relationships with hotel owners & managers across the world and particularly in the Caribbean. Claire worked for many of the top hotels across 9 different Caribbean islands prior to joining the family business. All of these hotels are small, boutique & family owned. They are all looking forward to welcoming guests back and Thames Travel clients are always treated with extra special care.
With the clear success of the vaccine roll out, we’re receiving more and more enquiries for this summer as well as the October half term, Christmas and into 2022. We’ve secured clients to the Caribbean, the Maldives and Mauritius for this Christmas and we’re working on ski holidays for next Easter too. We’ve also confirmed closer to home bookings in The Isles of Scilly, Scotland and Cornwall. These new holidays have been booked with very flexible booking terms and are fully ABTA and ATOL protected. Whenever the time is right for you, we’re here and ready to help. Trust us to help you make the whole process effortless and to get it just right for you. We’ll keep you up to date with the ever changing travel requirements and one thing to check right now is the validity of your passports – you’ll need 6 months from the date of return to go pretty much anywhere from now on.
