For starters, you can forget about chores like cooking – all your meals, snacks and drinks are part of the package. Plus, you’ll feel like a VIP with your own assistant once you’ve hit the book button – we’ll take care of your flights and transfers, all you have to do is show up at the airport with your passport. All of that comes included whichever hotel you choose, but picking a luxury hotel’s the cherry on the cake. Sound like your scene? These five-star hotels have high-class written all over them…

1. Riu Palace Tikida Taghazout, Morocco
This hotel’s box-fresh for 2019, so you can expect super modern facilities and bang-on-trend décor. Pool-wise, there’s a seven-strong selection to choose from, so your sunbathing sessions will come with plenty of elbow room. You can expect fancy extras like sunken patios round the water’s edge, too. Or, if you fancy a change of scenery, the beach is just a few footsteps away. And, the hotel’s earmarked a stretch of sand just for guests. When it comes to food, four restaurants, including a couple of fine-dining spots, fill the line up.
2. Kemer Barut Collection, Turkey
This hotel’s a winner when it comes to luxury family holidays. You’ll find it sat snugly between picture-perfect mountains and a sand-blanketed beach that’s reserved for guests. A trio of pools make up the swimming scene, and one comes with three slides that will keep fidgety kids busy while you sunbathe. On the food front, alongside a top-quality buffet spot, you’ve got four à la carte restaurants to keep you fed and watered. And, there’s a swish spa where you can book in for VIP treatments.
3. Riu Palace Costa Rica, Costa Rica
You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but this hotel’s an exception to the rule. Its seriously stylish exterior – complete with bright-white, palace-style domes – sets the scene perfectly for this high-class hotel. Its location’s a winner, too. The hotel’s bagged a beach-side spot, next to the super-secluded Playa de Matapalo beach. Four pools are on hand for swimming and sunbathing fans. One comes with swanky in-water loungers, and another with a swish swim-up bar. And for food, you’ve got a big buffet restaurant and four à la carte spots, including a steak house and a Japanese-specialising joint.
4. Guayarmina Princess Hotel – Adults Only, Tenerife
This hotel’s set on the biggest of the Canary Island bunch. It’s reserved just for grown-ups, so a peaceful stay’s on the cards. You can expect a double helping of restaurants – one buffet place with plenty of show-cooking stations, as well as an à la carte that specialises in meat dishes. A pair of pools are on hand for swimming and sunbathing – the bar that sits between them has got your back when it comes to drinks and snacks. Want to spend the day on the beach? Just hop in the hotel’s lift and you’ll be whisked to the waterside. And, if you’re feeling really fancy, you can upgrade to a Junior Suite. As well as a taste of the ‘suite’ life, along with your upgrade you’ll get access to the hotel’s exclusive Platinum area. Here, you’ll find a luxe infinity pool and a bonus bar and restaurant.
