If you find you're day dreaming of hot sunshine, great surf, and a whole lot of time to just relax and be pampered, then what you need is a luxury surf holiday. There's nothing like that feeling of waking up in a beautiful room, knowing that within a few hours you will be surfing fun waves, soaking up the sun and some stunning beachscapes. We love escaping the winter blues with a good dose of luxury, so take a look at our favourite surf destinations to treat yourself to:
  • 1- Paradis Plage, Taghazout, Morocco

If you're feeling the call to combine your passions, or maybe try out some new activities, staying at Paradis Plage Yoga Surf and Spa Resort enables you to do as much or as little as you please. Start your day with a yoga class, try a traditional Moroccan breakfast, surf at one of the many amazing pointbreaks found around Taghazout, and maybe end your day with a spa treatment before watching the sunset over a delicious seafood dinner.
Be sure to take part in a day trip to Agadir and visit the spectacular souk (market)… and attempt not to try and buy everything in sight!
  • 2- Vila Gale, Lagos, Portugal

The stunning 4 star Vila Gale hotel in Lagos is found on the beautiful Meia Praia beach. Whilst you stay there enjoy waking up to amazing views, days full of great warm water surfing and treats such as the hotel's sport and spa facilities… Think tennis, swimming in the 1000 metre squared pool, or maybe just indulging in a massage or chocolate therapy?
Even though you could easily stay deeply relaxing in the hotel for the whole of your holiday, make sure you visit the local Marina (only 7 minutes walk away), and the beautiful Old Town of Lagos for a taste of the friendly Portuguese culture.
  • 3- Viva Marinha, Cascais, Portugal

The Viva Marinha Hotel is hidden away in the Cascais-Sintra Natural Park and is rated 5 stars, so guarantees you a whole lot of calm and pampering. When you're not surfing at Guincho beach that's 3 minutes drive away, relax in the fitness suite or turkish bath, or even take in a round of golf at one of the two golf courses that are only 500 metres away.
Make sure you explore the coastline of Cascais, not only does it have numerous surf spots to discover, but the natural beauty of the landscape will have you planning your next trip back in no time.
