Adult-Only Hotels And Resorts In Europe Worth A Visit
Traveling with your children to Europe is a great bonding opportunity, but sometimes you want to have some fun with your contemporaries while abroad. You want to mingle, knock back exotic cocktails, and gorge yourself on delicious food.
There are some vacations where the last thing you want to worry about is whether your child will suddenly start running during the cultural excursion you signed up for. For some, not traveling with kids isn’t enough. You may want accommodations that cater to adult guests exclusively.
If the idea of an adult-only vacation sounds ideal, plan a visit to one of these hotels and resorts in Europe.
Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel – Spain
Mainland Spain is fantastic, as are all the Balearic islands. For party seekers, Ibiza is king, especially if you’re an electronic music fan.
At the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Hotel, cutting-edge meets sensual elegance. With access to multiple restaurants, the beach, the swimming pool, and world-class DJ performances, it might take some convincing to leave the grounds.
The accommodation buildings are adjacent to each other, and each has its own vibe. The Ushuaïa Tower is for guests who like to have discreet fun. The Ushuaïa Club rooms are for the swinging-from-the-chandeliers kind of person. The proximity to the stage makes that obvious, not to mention the names of the suites. There’s Ay Caramba, Oh My God, and the swanky Size Does Matter suite.
The most unique of all is the Pioneer DJ suite. Thanks to the state-of-the-art music equipment, you can unleash your inner Tiësto at all hours of the day and night. What’s more, all guests have access to the resort parties. Ibiza attracts the top DJs in the world, so you won’t be disappointed.
Moselschlösschen Spa & Resort – Germany
This German resort and spa invites you to throw your cares away and unwind. Located in the town of Traben-Trarbach, take your pick from the cozy single room, or go all the way up to the superior suites.
Most of the rooms afford enviable views of the Moselle River. There are a number of services that come with your stay, including gourmet breakfast, snacks, homemade cakes, and hiking sticks for rent. Traben-Trarbach offers wonderful scenery to explore on foot.
Head to the fully stocked hotel bar for your drink of choice, and light up a cigar in the Smokers’ Lounge. The wellness facilities include an infinity pool, a gym, and a variety of saunas.
Sandos Monaco – Spain
Located in Benidorm, this Spanish hotel also centers on wellness. Like all of Costa Brava, the sun frequently shines here, and the beaches are some of the best.
Choose from the following boarding options: bed and breakfast, full board, half board, and all-inclusive. Enjoy access to a series of bars, restaurants, and outstanding views of the mountains and sea.
Not only is this hotel suitable for vacation, but it’s also a good setting for remote work. Bring your laptop, put in your required hours, and go treat yourself to a spa evening. Choose from an extensive menu of facials, body treatments, manicures, and more — all done by caring, experienced professionals.
La Villa del Re Hotel – Italy
Be sure to have your camera with you because this hotel is surrounded by beautiful, Mediterranean scenery. Guests have access to a private, white sand beach, and an enormous, infinity pool. Take in views of the gardens and sea from just about all the rooms.
After Sicily, Sardinia is the largest island in Italy. However, some have said there’s something about Sardinia that makes it quite different from the mainland. It’s over 100 miles away and closer to the French island of Corsica. Also, the locals will sooner refer to themselves as Sardinians than Italians.
Porto Cervo, on the northeast end of Sardinia, recalls St. Barths or the Cote d’Azur. This is where the affluent come to play on their yachts, which dot the marina.
The Mandrake Hotel – England
If you’re looking for edgy sophistication in England’s capital, The Mandrake ticks that box. This hotel is in Fitzrovia, an affluent area. From there, you can access Covent Garden, Mayfair, and Soho, which are equally lovely. Plus, for some retail therapy, Oxford Street is a stone’s throw away.
The 33 rooms and suites are sumptuously decorated, but the real winner is the penthouse. A number of luminaries have stayed there, and it’s easy to see why. The space is fitted with white marble, it has a cashmere mattress, and the Jacuzzi bath has a retractable roof. Imagine sipping champagne, or something stronger, while gazing up at the night sky!
And that’s not all. How about a bit of spiritual welfare? Take your pick of yoga classes and sound baths. Lastly, for some South American fare in a stunning setting, check out YOPO, the restaurant.
