These beautiful options are our real favourites for the solo traveller looking for a meaningful escape. The purpose of the holiday maybe to kick-back and recharge your batteries or kick-start your fitness programme. Whatever your holiday aims, these properties will provide you with the experts on hand in an environment that will put you immediately at ease if you’re travelling solo. That means it’s a warm and welcoming environment, it’s very easy for you to mix and mingle with other guests and staff from the start and you’ll feel at home within the first few hours of your arrival.
Unless you have a personal recommendation or have had the recommendation from a travel specialist that knows the best options, it’s really hard to differentiate between properties that have and don’t have soul. Every property can show a beautiful bedroom and inviting pool on instagram and a website, but for us, it’s more important that you know how you’re going to ‘feel’ when you get there, especially if you’re travelling on your own.
These places have got soul, they’ve got character and you’ll immediately fit in and be well looked after. They’re authentic spaces, the staff are genuine, warm and friendly and that’s the combination that creates a positive, soulful vibe that is so unique. These are really special places. You’ll love them so much that you’ll certainly want to return having made firm friendships during your stay.
