Welcome to our monthly Elite Resorts of Asia Pacific news update. March is associated with many superstitions, ‘March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb’ referring to the start of spring in the northern part of the world.
What better way to celebrate the beginning of a new season, and the pleasures of life living in the tropics than an Elite Episode retreat for 4 nights to the balmy island of Koh Samui, Thailand with 11 of your closest friends, family, team or staff enjoying your own private 6-bedroom Villa overlooking Bophut beach. A gourmet Thai dinner for 12 cooked by the in-house chef, a Thai massage for all guests and breakfast to start off the new day, maybe this time alone by the pool watching the sun rise? Villa Suralai… we are packing as we write!
If 4 nights is not enough to unwind, why not book for 8 and come back completely relaxed and energised.
Peppers on the Point on Lake Rotorua, North Island New Zealand, is another Elite Episode for the fortunate who wish to savour a delightful environment with a friend or two. Just five minutes from the heart of Rotorua city, Peppers on the Point is an exquisitely furnished converted 1930′s mansion with stunning lake views. There are also two private lake cottage suites available, along with the owner’s residence.
