Island Sun-seeking – Lanzarote from £424 per person

Stylish four-star Elba Lanzarote Royal Village ticks every box. The hotel’s pretty cobbled paths and whitewashed buildings - decorated with volcanic rock - are typical of the island, as are the subtropical gardens. The vast complex of swimming pools - both saltwater and freshwater - reflect the work of local artist and sculptor César Manrique, and there’s a kids’ pool and waterslides for those travelling with little ones. Away from the water, there’s tennis and beach volleyball, a free shuttle to the beach, a luxurious spa and a range of restaurants and bars to try – all a world away from the humdrum of work and everyday life.
