By Posted on 0 Comments Location: , 3min read487 views

While a skiing holiday can be an exciting trip for all ages, it can be intimidating for a beginner skier to visit a ski resort for the first time. However, our insider knowledge will enable you to get the most out of your visit and, perhaps, leave you craving more. The top ski resorts for beginners have been hand-selected by us for your first skiing vacation.

Passo Tonale, Italy

Passo Tonale, located high in the Italian Alps, provides many peaceful, simple runs accessible by chairlifts close to the hotels. With access to 100 km of slopes that are well connected, Passo Tonale is one of Italy’s most incredible value ski resorts and one of its snowiest. There are many mild blues and reds and vast nursery slopes where beginners can gain confidence, and it is simple to navigate the area.

top 10 ski resorts for beginners

Tremblant, Canada

Tremblant is one of the top-rated ski areas on the East Coast. With few lift lines and relatively quiet long, wide routes at Tremblant, you can use all the room you need to practise your turns and be back up the mountain in no time. You may ski securely across the entire ski resort on relatively simple and straightforward slopes. The alternative is quite easy to navigate, as all the runs converge at this hub.

Obergurgl, Austria

Beginners and families are the main focus at Obergurgl, a superb high resort. Obergurgl is a beautiful, high-altitude resort catering to novice and family skiers. Before moving higher up the mountain for more challenging runs, practise your spins on the vast, treeless slopes to build confidence. There are two beginner sections, one at the bottom of the village below the Festkogel chair lift and the other in the town centre close to the Rosskar chair lift.

Arinsal, Andorra

Arinsal has been designated as a haven for newcomers. Visitors come here to begin their brand-new fascination with winter sports. The mountain layout makes it quite simple to find your way around the slopes, and there are lots of beginner-friendly slopes where you can practise those first turns and the crucial skill of stopping. So Arinsal is an excellent choice for beginners and improvers. The large, mellow slopes are helpful for beginners; there is even a designated area for families.

Les Arcs, France

Our ranking of the top European ski resorts for beginners and intermediate skiers includes Les Arcs. There is a lot of pleasant terrain at Les Arcs, and each area has several slopes with a low gradient and designated beginning zones for skiers. Les Arcs includes a free lift for novices and is a well-liked location for skiers and snowboarders of all levels. However, it is the best choice for beginners because it features beginner slopes over each resort’s main villages.

Tignes, France

As one of the top ski resorts in the world for beginners, we heartily endorse Tignes. This well-known ski area has something for everyone. For beginners, there are even no-cost practice lifts. There are several accessible runs and gentle slopes for beginners. The mountain station has a relatively broad area with slopes for slower skiers. You may practise your glide here thanks to the variety of easy nursery slopes. After you feel more confident, pick from various lengthy, cruisey blue runs to improve your stamina and skill. Because of its elevation, Tignes enjoys a more extended ski season than most ski areas, with excellent powder conditions into the early spring. Also, it offers a great selection of ski schools for skiers of all levels.

Cervinia, Italy

With the most consistent snowfall and conditions, it is the highest-altitude ski resort in Italy. With its short, snow-sure nursery slopes at resort level and plenty of lengthy, accessible courses to advance above Plan Maison, Cervinia is a great destination for beginners. A nursery slope is easily accessible from the village for those just putting on their ski boots for the first time. There are also a lot of options for ski schools. The number of easy runs accessible for those seeking to advance makes Cervinia ideal for beginners.

Although it can be overwhelming for a beginner skier to hit the slopes for the first time, these seven ski resorts are the ideal places for you to experience your first ski vacation.

Inside the lounge itself it was contemporary, clean and relaxing atmosphere including all the essential amenities from smart phone charge points, golf simulation, a pool table, cocktail bar to the warm welcome from attentive staff members. Shower facilities were also available on site for ease of convenience when transiting through the airport to freshen up before your next flight.

I had my morning breakfast in a quiet spot of the Prestige Water Villas Infinity pool with a view overlooking our private beach and ocean, so it felt very private. This is ideal, especially if you’re on a honeymoon or enjoying a romantic getaway for two.

For content creators Meedhuparu Island is such a stunning location for Travel and luxury lifestyle destination photography. It makes it so much easier to create stunning imagery to catch the eye of even the discerning travellers looking for wanderlust inspiration.

I myself attempted the jetski and funtube where I used three cameras to capture the action: one camera captured the main action and two GoPro cameras in waterproof cases on my wrist and chest harness captured all my adventure on the water.

It’s been a fantastic adventure. I’ve learnt so much. The Maldivian people are lovely, very friendly, accommodating and welcoming. The resort is fabulous: lots of different accommodation to suit all preferences, lovely restaurants from pan-Asian fusion to Mediterranean, and bars to cater to all taste, whether that be a quiet drink in beachside bar or in a livelier bar in the bustle of things at a weekly beach party.

Traveling to London? Need to stay central? This eco-friendly, luxury apart hotel is located just 5 minutes walk from Waterloo Station

There’s nothing more satisfying than checking into a hotel for a holiday or mini staycation as it’s been a long while since I took an actual vacation. Just last week I headed to the Stow-Away Hotel in South Bank for that well needed staycation one evening. I’ve only managed to get away rarely this year due to the current global pandemic, so welcomed the chance to just get away and make the most of this opportunity to travel. The thrill and excitement of packing a bag once more seemed very appealing to me so I decided to jump on a train to the London Eco Luxury Hotel.

(Gifted Press Stay) The hotel is location in London South Banks cultural district, built in 2018 on Lower Marsh Street in the dynamic cultural borough of Southwark. Southbank has seen creativity come alive from frequent fairs and witnessed historical events such as the hotels original land lot being bombed in WWII has been home to world class arts venues The Southbank Centre to BFI film theatre and National Theatre.

Let’s not forget the hotels fully equipped serviced studio apartments to complimentary luxury toiletries from Molton Brown London specifically chosen due to their large refillable and recyclable bottles.

Did you know at Stow-Away they have a heat recovery system that recycles the excess heat from the air conditioning system into hot water to help reduce overall energy consumption. It’s good to know that you can sleep comfortably with the aircon on knowing the excess heat is put towards your shower in the morning too.

Eco Friendly Hotels London

I was immediately impressed upon arrival to the property with a friendly customer service team on standby and their keyless entry using a Digital App on your smartphone with ease.

I’d say the check-in process was seemingly easy to set up as your room number and booking details were issued by email before arrival and no waiting around which was ideal.

Contactless check-in upon Arrival for Peace of Mind

Using the App just open up the key screen by holding it up to the reader on the main front entrance or hotel room door to gain secure access. I stayed in room 203 on the 2nd Floor reachable by the main set of stairs or lift access to all floors. Prices for a Maximum of 2 persons sharing in the Apartments start from £98.10 per night.

I really loved the extremely comfy bed with ultra Hypnos mattresses – the Award winning makers of bespoke, handcrafted and sustainably-made beds & mattresses approved by the HRH the Queen. In hindsight the overall design aesthetics of the room sizes and layout during my stay were effortlessly sleek and contemporay.

But the main highlight of this room had to be the fully equipped kitchen for all your culinary needs as a home away from home. As this stay was personal to me to switch off and relax, I did just that by taking a rain shower and pamper myself with Molton Brown toiletries before bed in the walk in marble tiled bathroom. But, most importantly I wanted to comment how clean the apartment was especially at present where this is essential more than ever before.

I’ve never felt so re-assured with contactless check in, mask, relaxed social distancing rules in ground floor restaurant and bar ‘Unwind’ Pop Up at the Hotel to a spotless Apartment with fresh remote for Smart TV. Rest-assured a lot of careful thought has gone into implementing a solid covid action plan on their website to ensure all guest feel confident they are always protected. It’s so good to be back in hotels again whether you need to stay a for the night, a week, or longer duration, this contemporary eco hotel offers everything you could want to make your stay a pleasant one. I’ve already recommended Stow-Away Hotel to friends and family as a space to work and a space to relax for those interested in booking a Business trip to London? The eco Apartment studios are centrally located in London, which offer sufficient space to work, relax and enjoy.

In case you’re wondering what the connection is, the association with the French Design House began when the Designer and Pierre Berge first visited the garden in 1966 upon their first stay.

THE BEST LUXURY VILLAS IN MARRAKECH

Before coming to Morocco I’ve always been intrigued by its charm, beauty and splendor, so when the chance came I stumbled upon a dear friend’s Wedding Invitation I just couldn’t turn down the opportunity for a long weekend. It was here I discovered the Dar JL Luxury Villa’s and it’s accommodations and private grounds were just breathtaking – take a moment to admire its surroundings and scenery’s. The garden is beautiful but sometimes it’s a real treat to take time out to rest inside one of the villas. Or why not a have private lunch in the Olive Garden Grove which is where my friend had her Wedding Ceremony.

I recall it being 37 degrees one afternoon so took a swim in one of the swimming pools which had a reflection of the olive tree in it. I’ll never forget that night of the Wedding reception the enchanting magic of the atmosphere lots of candlelight and lanterns were truly an unforgettable experience.

When night falls the magic begins in Marrakech.

Inside the villas you will come across tapestry’s that adorn the walls with magnificent vibrant colour with every fine detail of the cushions local arts and crafts.We partied the night away at Dar JL Hippie Village suite with entertainment from a live DJ set and wedding band till the early hours is such a favourite place to hang out.

Did you know, Dar JL also boast a private pool in one of the suites to outdoor shower facilities if you’re keen on alone time.

Dar JL Villa La Tour which enables you to view the snowy Atlas Mountains in awe


Here’s a thought its day two of the Wedding, early morning swim or enjoy a hammam in their luxury wellness suites are divine. Either or, both experiences will make a well afternoon spent just for two as Dar JL has lots of secret places to explore in the garden. After a sunny day, it was time for our tea in the berber tent before getting into the evening mood.

There is so much beauty and colour around you where you will notice the yellow cactus flowers really blend into the garden too. Care for some more Mint Tea before continuing a few steps up of the Dar JL Villa La Tour which enables you to view the snowy Atlas Mountains in awe. Also, entertainment included a late night movie in open wow what an experience I tell you it was under the stars and candle light.

I think the best moment for me is that each night during you’re stay you can find a new place in the garden to have your dinner and new places to hang out in discreet hideaways amongst the tiles and arches. I do miss the outdoor picnics we had during the day after the Wedding for more celebrating of my newlywed friends.

Not forgetting delicious food is so important during your vacation the dining experiences at Dar JL are second to none. I highly recommend coming and sampling the cuisine for the ultimate dining experience

It’s another pool day ahead for Sun lounging, Sunshine and Serenity of Moroccan architecture ticks all the boxes. What else do you need…

A STAY WITH ART HOTEL MUSEO IN TUSCANY | CULTURE & STYLE AWAITS YOU

OPERA ARTE RESTAURANT FINE DINNING & HOTEL REVIEW

So a few months back, Jenny and I were invited to spend a couple of nights at the elegant Art Hotel Museo in Tuscany and we of course jumped up the opportunity to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa on the way there. Situated in Prato province, this 4 star Tuscany hotel offers one of the best stays in the city, and has held a renowned reputation for Europe’s leading Textile Industries. We were offered one of their Classic Suites with views over The Contemporary Art Museum L. Pecci and access to their gym facilities to car hire service.

Tuscany Hotels

Let’s start with a little introduction about the hotel itself. Since it’s founding, Art Hotel Museo was born under the sign of Art both for it’s location in front of the Luigi Pecci the center of contemporary art, and has always held a very high standard or both service, and accommodation with plenty of guest facilities and food & beverage options including; close proximity to the history city allows visitors to enjoy art, design, fashion and shopping in numerous outlets.

“We offer all our guests comfortable and cosy rooms (106 rooms including 2 executive, 3 deluxe and 4 suites and our renovated Classic Plus and our Designer Rooms on 04th Floor) as well as functional spaces conceived and designed to offer complete satisfaction in a setting of total relaxation. Art Hotel Museo is not only the meeting point of reference in Prato but it is also an active and dynamic hotel in the area.”

From the Art Hotel Museo Website

Tuscany Hotels

I’ve got to say that this is one of the best hotel stay experiences we’ve had lately and the hospitality was outstanding. In fact second to none that we’d love to come back again soon. The rooms were very spacious including a separate walk in closet next door to the Bathroom with a modern contemporary feel inside the classic suite. Homely touches through out the whole hotel was so beautiful it was like an Art Gallery with a different theme on each floor. Me and Jen made good use of the Hotel Bar after a day of designer shopping Gigli Mall where we brought new outfits for Milan Fashion Week. The Hotel bar served all our Classic cocktail favourite’s from Aperol Spritz to Espresso Martini’s, fashion week here we come!

Tuscany Hotels

Fancy a sumptuous cocktail or fine glass of Tuscan wine after day of sightseeing and shopping, spot of lunch or formal dinner the hotel has something to cater to everyone with various food and drinks options at the in-house The Opera Arte Restaurant including room service in dinning menu looks delicious. You’ve got to try their ‘Traditional Italian Roman Pizza’ Pinsa Romana with it’s soft fluffy dough base mozzarella, tomato, basil my favorite here. But, don’t forget to try the fresh gelato ice cream served as a desert option is just divine the taste of mouthwatering fresh lemon after two courses.

Tuscany Hotels

Tuscany Hotels

Another delicacy you must try is the Authentic Spaghetti Bolognese made with fresh tomato sauce and wild boar mince instead of beef which we are so used to having back home so it was a real treat to try something new in Tuscany. It would be great to attempt this dish when I get back home as I’m always looking to improve my culinary skills in the kitchen and cooking is enjoyable too especially during the lock down period. I’ve taken the time to learn new skills and take up new hobbies like watching ‘YouTube’ cooking channels – looking forward to what cuisine I’ll attempt in the kitchen next.

We both really enjoyed our time here in Prato Tuscany and the staff management at Art Hotel Museo were so kind and accommodating to us it made such a real difference for our stay. This hotel is also perfect for business travelers equip with conference rooms as well as holiday makers looking for a relaxing stay on vacation.

The outdoor pool and spacious garden are ideal for a fun summer with pop up bar and the hotel is Pet friendly too.  For us, it was all about taking time to switch off from our busy itinerary of life in London before the start of Milan Fashion Week. We definitely made the most of it, so if you are after a short weekend break to take in some culture through cuisine, fine wine, dining and shopping then this would be the ideal hotel to check out what Prato has to offer.  I discovered that Prato is known as The Textile City throughout history portraying cultural significance of fashion to wine in Tuscany’s winery’s and vineyards is very intriguing for wine lovers alike.
