Luxe Florida Holiday

Strap yourself in and prepare for the ride of your life in one of Florida’s thrilling theme parks, chill out in trendy Miami and mingle with the beautiful people in SoBe. For a taste of island life, visit one of the Keys, strung along the coast, try your hand and diving and enjoy a relaxed pace of life. For lush flora and fauna, the Everglades are alive with birds, insects and a multitude of alligators and manatees.

Experience the magic of Disney in the iconic Magic Kingdom, go behind the scenes at Universal Studios® or for those with slightly older kids, or those with a wild side, scream on thrilling rides at Universal’s Islands of Adventure. You can also get up close to hippos and hyenas in Busch Gardens® at Tampa Bay, watch high-octane NASCAR racing at Homestead-Miami Speedway or become an astronaut for the day at the Astronaut Training Experience.

Loews Portofino Bay Hotel At Universal Orlando® Resort - Kuoni - (More Information & Booking)

A slice of Italy has come to Orlando in the form of the Loews Portofino Hotel. Modelled on the picturesque Italian coastal fishing village of Portofino, the charm and colour of the resort evokes a European feel with a distinctly American twist; offering you the best of both worlds. The attention to detail will captivate you as you wander along cobblestones, passing beneath the long shadows cast by towering Italian cypress trees.

Located bayside, right on the grounds of Universal Orlando®, you can’t get much closer to the action. But after a couple of days of running around the theme parks, hopping on and off rides, a day relaxing at your resort is the perfect remedy for aching feet. Treat yourself at the Mandara Spa® or lounge by one of the resort’s three swimming pools. Continuing with the Italian theme, the Beach Pool features a Roman-style aqueduct waterslide and is great for families, or if you need a little grown-up time, the Hillside Pool is the place to head for. No matter where you decide to spend some down time, a refreshing cocktail or cool beer is just an order away.

In Miami itself you’ll find beautiful people, an array of fantastic shopping opportunities, trendy art galleries and some of Florida’s finest cuisine. Head to Downtown Miami and Coconut Grove to give your credit card a work out, enjoy an evening tipple in Ocean Drive and, for a little taste of Cuban spice, head to Little Havana.
