Travelmarvel's Top 5 Dream Stays
A key component of any travel experience is the accommodation
. After a day of adventure and discovery there is nothing better than to return to a delicious meal and a large comfortable bed. Fortunately, Travelmarvels experts have done the hard work and shortlisted premium accommodation from across the globe, hand picking accommodation which offers spacious rooms, thoughtful amenities, and exceptional customer service to ensure all guests have the best on-tour experience possible, no matter where in the world they are.
Here are just some of the variety of amazing accommodation you can experience with Travelmarvel...
Les Jardin du Marais, France
Paris. A city for culture vultures, history enthusiasts and the old-fashioned romantics.
For the city of love, you will need an equally alluring hotel, and Les Jardin du Marais’s chic interiors and spacious rooms make the perfect match. Situated amongst the highlights of Paris, including the Louvre Museum, Palais Garnier, Notre-Dame and Arc de Triomphe, you are assured a beautiful tourist attraction, and after a day of culture and croissant, return to your hotel for a treatment at the spa, or channel your inner Parisian and while away the hours with a coffee and a book on the terrace. Discover this fabulous hotel and many more on the 21-day European Gems tour.
Mövenpick Petra, Jordan
As far as premium accommodation goes, you will struggle to find a hotel more dreamlike than a castle overlooking the Rift Valley, Petra.
Mövenpick is a luxury stay you will be reluctant to leave on your 19-day Treasures of Egypt and The Nile, Hidden Jordan and Israel tour. This five-star fortress knows how to make the most of the breath-taking views across the desert, a standout inclusion being a beautiful outdoor restaurant in a traditional Bedouin tent, where guests can enjoy a romantic Arabic meal under the stars.
If that wasn’t enticing enough, the hotel is also infamous for its complimentary daily "chocolate hour” where guests are encouraged to indulge in cocoa-based treats. One flight to Jordan please!
Kimberley Wilderness Lodges, Australia
Experience camping, but for grown-ups. At Travelmarvel we don't think being in one of the most remote locations in the world is an excuse not to get a good night’s sleep, so we have created an enviable accommodation of our own, a collection of Wilderness Lodges in stunning locations around the Kimberley.
Travelmarvel’s tented cabins are perfectly placed at the heart of the bush, and with your own private deck, there really is no excuse not to enjoy every sunrise and sunset, and if you do happen to feel a little social, communal campfires and outdoor bar and dining options make for the perfect evening under the stars. Discover our lodges today on the nine-day Kimberley Adventure by 4WD adventure.
Emerald Lake Lodge, Canada
Return to nature and wholesome fun at a quintessentially Canadian cabin in the woods on your 23-day Rockies and Alaskan Adventure.
From the mountain peaks to the thick fir forest and the jade-green lake, it is the natural beauty which surrounds Emerald Lake Lodge that will steal your heart. Whether you want to walk the shoreline, or kayak at sunrise, this is the perfect accommodation when you are looking to unplug.
Built of hand-hewn timber and featuring massive stone fireplaces, Emerald Lake Lodge itself is the epitome of the idyllic cabin in the woods, but with a few luxurious upgrades. Guests of the lodge have access to an elegant dining room, quiet reading and sitting rooms, and to make your stay truly hallmark-movie worthy, you can spend a family-friendly evening in the games room or cosied up around the outdoor firepit.
Bhaya Cruise Ship, Vietnam
A room with a view is great, but a room with an ever changing view? Even better!
Hop aboard the Bhaya Cruise Ship in Vietnam, a floating hotel which will take you on a two-day journey through the beautiful Ha Long Bay.
Bhaya Cruises’ Classic Junk is an intimate cruise experience, accommodating just 20 surprisingly spacious cabins. Once aboard guests will enjoy the perfect balance of relaxation and exploration, with access to a sundeck, spa and restaurant serving authentic fresh Vietnamese cuisine. While on the cruise you can also sign up for experiences away from the tourism trail, such as visiting the mysterious Trinh Nu Beach or kayaking across the bay. Discover Vietnam and Cambodia on a 17-day tour.
