Luxury and style in Vietnam
Travel company Scott Dunn is offering a 25 per cent discount on trips to the stunning Vietnamese beach retreat Nam Hai. Sitting on the deserted sands of a fairytale beach, and a short distance from the historic town of Hoi An, the hotel – which has an old Buddist temple within its grounds that’s still used by locals – combines Vietnam’s ancient culture with chic and sleek luxury of the most indulgent kind. Package starts from £2,750 per person in a one bedroom villa for 12 nights, a saving of £750 per person, including flights. www.scottdunn.com.

Head to a rural idyll in the Mediterranean
Savings of £66 per person are to be made from Prestige Holidays on a week’s stay at the rather splendid Kempinski San Lawrenz on Gozo, the smaller island off the northern edge of Malta. Unlike its more built-up sister island, Gozo is rural, ragged and hilly, and accessible only by ferry by Malta. It’s an atmospheric place to soak up the summer sun, especially with all the luxuries of the Kempinski hotel to hand. Packages from £734 per person, based on a 16 June departure, including return flights from Gatwick, airport transfers and seven nights bed and breakfast accommodation. For more information visit www.prestigeholidays.co.uk or call 01425 480 400.

The ultimate in Alpine pampering
Switzerland’s upscale Alpine spa and health retreat, the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz, is celebrating the first anniversay of its Spa Suites with a special package offering three nights for the price of two. Each suite in the striking Spa Tower features a private sauna and mineral water on tap, and the package includes access to the main spa and thermal pools, gourmet dinner and luxurious treatments. The offer is valid until 30 June, from €1,117 per person. For more information visit www.resortragaz.ch.
