One&Only The Palm, Dubai - Aqua adventures

With Palm Beach Mansions (offering waterfront views and private pools) and gloriously secluded Beachfront Villas, the accommodation options at One&Only The Palm, naturally lend themselves to recreating a serene summer experience amidst the soaring city skyscrapers that surround it. But guests looking for the thrill of a warm-weather adrenaline rush will certainly also find it with complimentary access to nearby Aquaventure Park when they stay at the resort for three nights or more. Voted Trip Advisor’s best-rated water park in the Middle East, Aquaventure is packed with rides and is the ultimate destination for those who really want to dip their feet in the water all year round. (Offer also valid at One&Only Royal Mirage).

One&Only Nyungwe House, Rwanda - Summer spas

All One&Only properties offer opulent spa treatments, but the one at One&Only Nyungwe House in Rwanda is particularly perfect for those who dream of recreating the magical feel of sun-kissed skin and warm summer showers. Described as ‘a blissful sanctuary inspired by nature’ the resort is located in the heart of a working tea plantation, enveloped by ancient forests. And its spas’ partner is Africology which provides a range of bespoke treatments that combine the wisdom of traditional holistic therapies with the scientific power of the purest natural ingredients.

As well an eternally idyllic location set on a pristine peninsula, the resort offers the opportunity to experience a plethora of intimate outdoor dining options. From a bespoke menu served by soft sands and the soothing sound of a lapping ocean, to a cozy tepee (featuring a Parisian glass chandelier suspended from the canopy; custom-made wooden floor; and flowing gold fabric) to private sunset dining on a boat, it’s never a bad season to enjoy wining and dining under the stars.

One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos - Sun, sand and surf

One&Only Cape Town, South Africa - Island escapes

Promises of panoramic views over iconic Table Mountain may draw most travellers, but an island escape is also an any-time option for guests at the One&Only Cape Town – with the resort claiming two private islands as its own. While a Michelin-starred meal can be enjoyed at Nobu, diners dreaming of the fresh cuisine of Sardinia should set sail to Isola – a casually elegant restaurant set amidst lushly landscaped gardens. As well as offering alfresco dining poolside and a Mediterranean menu of woodfired pizza and seafood, a seasonally heated pool and the surrounding waterways add to the experience of an eternal summer (within steps of the vibrant city).

Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, Australia - Outback adventures

Milder-than-most-winters and annually temperate weather means it’s never a bad time to explore the Australian outdoors. While an array of indoor indulgences are always available (including spas, bars and a private pool), it would be a shame not to head outside and deeply breathe the fresh air that lingers over Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley. Situated between two national parks – the Wollemi and Gardens of Stone – this resort is perfectly positioned to showcase the majestic beauty of the region and experience activities such as guided nature walks, horse-riding, mountain-biking, archery, tennis, wildlife tours and even a Krug champagne picnic – at any time of the year.
