Florida

There’s more to the Florida than just sunny skies, and families and couples alike will find a virtually inexhaustible variety of things to do. The Sunshine State lives up to its reputation with blue skies, beaches and a million things to do.

Miami invites the visitor into a metropolitan mesh of culture, the bright neighbourhoods with their hip hotels exuding a Latino vibe. Spend your luxury Florida holiday strolling past lycra-clad roller-bladers and visiting the art deco district’s candy-coloured houses.
Palm Beach and Boca Raton are Florida’s most exclusive and opulent beach resorts with exclusive and opulent hotels to match. If you like your beach holiday with a large dose of glamour, pampering spas and golf, all in the lap of luxury, Palm Beach won’t disappoint. Naples, on the other hand, is the very essence of West Coast charm with its uncrowded beachfront and countless golf courses.

Florida’s answer to the Caribbean, the Florida Keys, comprise a magical 140-mile string of islands stretching out into the Gulf of Mexico. There’s a distinctly tropical vibe with secluded beaches, world-class deep-sea fishing and excellent scuba diving.
Possibly the world’s favourite family playground, Orlando’s list of attractions is almost endless. Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Wet ‘n’ Wild, Typhoon Lagoon, Discovery Cove and more are all here. Whether you travel with children or not, our extensive choice of luxury hotels will ensure you can relax in style at the end of each hectic day’s fun.

There are thrills of a different kind in store in the Everglades, home to innumerable species of wildlife such as dolphins, turtles and all manner of exotic birds. Skim across the endless sea of grasses, spotting crocs and alligators as you go. Hop on a float plane for a true Everglades experience, or jump into a pontoon boat for close up wildlife encounters.

• For a really fun experience, take an airboat ride on the Everglades spotting alligators and manatees. It’s an experience that all the family will enjoy.

• One of Florida’s most scenic drives is route A1A which hugs the coast all the way from Fernandino Beach in the north to Fort Lauderdale where it becomes Highway 1 and continues down to Key West.

• Longboat Key, Naples and Marco Island are three of Florida’s best kept secrets. All have wonderful beaches as well as great golf, fine dining and luxury shopping.
