Top Diver at Amanyara
Turks and Caicos’s sexiest resort will be adding sessions with the world’s best diver, Tanya Streeter, to its attractions. Streeter holds several world records and is considered the “perfect athlete.” She will be hosting free-diving sessions at the resort and -charmingly if slightly incongruously – giving talks about humpback whales during their peak migration season. Seven nights from £4,885pp including return flights from London with BA and private transfers. Departs 21 Feb 10. www.carrier.co.uk
A week at Zighy Bay
Set in the Musandam Peninsula in northern Oman, everything here is set up for a paradise away from it all – from the haute cuisine to the state of the art spa. Snorkelling and diving also excellent. Seven nights for the price of five from £1,649 per person. Price includes flights and private transfers. Valid 14 June-9 July and 1-25 August 2010. From Trailfinders (0845 050 5871, www.trailfinders.com).
Party time at Malmaison
With the general election campaign getting under way, the political parties are revving their battle buses and bracing themselves for many nights spent in hotels on the campaign trail. The people at the Malmaison chain are doing their best to lure the politicos with special treats. For Conservatives, they are offering free caviar, for Labour, a pint of Brown Ale, while Liberal Democrats get – a hot water bottle and a cup of hot chocolate. Available at all Malmaisons
