Asia Gardens, Alicante

 A guarantee of 300 days of sunshine a year makes Asia Gardens in Alicante the perfect winter sun destination. You may not return to Blighty tanned and glowing but you are sure to get a bit of Vitamin D brightening up your body.

Just a two hour plane journey away, Alicante is an unlikely but wonderful place to spend a weekend, when you have a hotel like Asia Gardens as your home. On the final few days of November I visited the hotel for a girls getaway hoping for some much needed rest and relaxation. We enjoyed sitting by the exotic pools, soaking in the luxuriously big baths in our huge bedrooms, and dipping strawberries in the chocolate fountain at breakfast. For supper we indulged at the fine Thai restaurant (Koh Samui) where I’d recommend the Pad Thai and the curries, which were spicy, thick and wonderfully flavoured.

Near to the property there are caves and mountains, vineyards and seaside wonders to discover. We treated ourselves to a decadently delicious tapas meal at Alicante’s top eatery, La Taberna del Gourmet where we gorged on the very best red wine, Iberico ham and Paella. When night fell we braved Benidorm, the local party town, and spent the evening hanging out with the locals, watching a hilarious drag show and embarrassing ourselves at karaoke.

If you’re fed up with the English winter, you could book a holiday in Asia Gardens where it feels like summer every day.
