Stay Here: Asia GardensBy Angelica Malin
Asia Gardens is a hotel like you’ve never seen before. You may have pre-conceptions with Alicante as a destination, but I promise you, this hotel is nothing like the booze-filled, raucous holidays you might imagine. Asia Gardens is a quiet, serene spa hotel, with the most incredible swimming pools and an easy-going, relaxed casual dining situation, perfect for families and couples looking for a relaxing break. If you’re planning your next holiday, here’s what you need to know:
There’s everything from the Deluxe Room to your incredible Presidential Deluxe Suite. The most basic room is even incredible; expect double rooms exquisitely decorated in true modern Balinese style. The Deluxe Room comes with a terrace, king sized beds, home cinema system and beautiful marble bathrooms. If you really want to splash out, the Deluxe Suite Langkawi is like nothing you’ve seen. Expect sloping wooden ceilings, exquisite furnishings and only the best fabrics to complement the room. There’s all the luxuries you could hope for – king size canopy, spectacular bathroom with circular bathtub and beautiful views of the coast. You’ll also have access to the exclusive Thai Club and preferential booking at their à la carte restaurants. And did we mention 24-hour room service? What’s not to love?
There’s a great selection of restaurants, which will suit every holiday style. You can try everything from Asian flavours to traditional Mediterranean and international cuisine. Udaipur is the buffet restaurant, open at breakfast and dinner, which has pretty much everything you want – all the best Spanish cheeses, freshly-made omelettes and great juice at breakfast, fresh salads and fish dishes at dinner. The restaurant has a great aspect, looking out over the hotel pools, and is perfect for a long, leisurely breakfast. If you like Asian food, Koh Samui serves top Asian food, such as fresh summer rolls with prawn, Pad Thai and inspired cocktails. Dreams.
There’s lots of activities both inside and outside the hotel – it just depends how much you feel like doing! If you’re in more of a chilled mood, hotel boasts lots of great internal activities. There’s a great spa, incredible swimming pools and a fitness centre. There’s 2 golf courses for guests, only 3 minutes away from the hotel, and you can check out the Terra Mitica theme park, water sports, helicopter tours from the hotel and visiting local wineries. If you’re looking to explore more, Alicante is rather enchanting. There’s an amazing coastline, as well as beautiful beaches. You can get out for the day to nearby destinations like Altea, Calpe, Jávea and Moraira, which are great for outdoor activities and watersports.
The spa is really what you come for, though. Their Thai Spa is a new concept among all 5-star hotels with spa in Spain and Europe where magic, tradition, wisdom and fantasy are the true stars of each of their treatments. Come here for traditional Thai massage, Balinese massage, 4-Hands massage and a total body hydration programme. Later, explore the beautiful tropical gardens for a total sense of calm and serenity.
The perfect hotel for a weekend break, Asia Gardens has everything you could want and need for a romantic break, or a girly holiday. The hotel has a beautiful vibe about it, and everything from the restaurant to the perfectly manicured gardens, has been carefully thought out. If you’re looking for an easy luxury getaway, we can’t recommend Asia Gardens enough.
