Already got itchy feet and feel the need to travel? We hear you. But, although we love an intrepid trip abroad as much as the next mentally maxed out tourist, we want ours to have less fuss and more fun in 2017.

So we’ve shopped around for the best travel package deals that push your adventurous spirit to the limit, while still leaving a lot of room for lazing about.

Here is Stylizen’s travel inspiration beyond the expected destinations.

1. Skiing In Japan

Lonely Planet recently named the Hokkaido region in Japan as their number one destination in Asia. Furthermore, travellers to Japan have reached 18 million, a 19% increase from previous years. Sounds like a hot spot, right? Club Med has responded to this growth with the announcement of a second Club Med ski resort in Japan – Tomamu, Hokkaido. But if skiing is not your thing, be sure to check out Japan during the cherry blossom season in April. A sight to behold to add to your travel bucket list!

2. Luxuriating in Mauritius

A favourite holiday destination for celebrities, Mauritius is now within the reach of us laymen and women thanks to the private Albion Villas. Set amid flowering hibiscus on marvellous Mauritius, you can have your own butler to take care of everyday tasks and the option of a personal chef in the villa. This trip has all the trimmings of a high-end jaunt, whilst including enough activities to keep the kids happy too.

3. Sunning Yourself Off Singapore

Located a short ferry ride from Singapore, Club Med Bintan Island is a resort in the heart of a magnificent tropical park and private tropical beach. I travelled here with my young family last year and although I’d never heard of it before, I will visit again. We had such a humdinger of a time! Recently redesigned, the resort is now the ultimate wellness destination for families with new activities, from yoga at sunrise to twilight trapeze, on offer.
