5-star Food Heaven for Singles with Friendship Travel

Sociable singles operator Friendship Travel hosts its first holiday at The Raga Side on 4 May, the first of a season-long series of small group holidays at the highly-regarded Turkish five-star.

Prices start at just £995 for seven nights including flights, transfers, sole occupancy of a double room (no single supplement), all meals and drinks, and the support of a Friendship Travel Host throughout: outstanding value!

The 187-room hotel was re-invented as an adult-only all-inclusive in 2018, with an emphasis on good food and drink.

Menus showcase fresh local ingredients, including seafood, with plenty of variety including Turkish, Italian, French and international dishes. Waiter service and cook-to-order stations are a world away from the tepid buffets of many all-inclusives.

There are three bars across the property, with drinks by the glass ranging from fresh juices and speciality coffees to premium branded spirits and international wines.

The stylish refurbishment of the hotel has created excellent facilities: two outdoor pools, its own beach bar with sun-beds and parasols on Side’s superb west beach (no more than 300m away), a nightclub with regular live acts and DJ, a gym, free WiFi in public areas and a spa with hammam (at extra cost).

Historic Side, where the Temples of Athena and Apollo stand beside the Med, along with the remains of the Roman market, the bath-house and Byzantine palace, are a short taxi ride away.

Friendship Travel operates weekly departures to The Raga every Saturday from 4 May to 19 October 2019, with seven and 14-night packages available.

Easter Escapes for Single Travellers

Friendship Travel has home and away options for single travellers looking for an Easter break, and there’s no single supplement to pay on either of them!

For those with just the bank holiday weekend spare, a three-night package at the four-star Donnington Valley Hotel, Spa and Golf Club in leafy Berkshire starts on Good Friday and, as with all Friendship Travel breaks, is Hosted by at least one of its experienced representatives.

The modern hotel’s facilities include a superb indoor pool, gym, and wide range of health and beauty treatments in the spa, as well as an 18-hole parkland golf course. Country walks, 10-pin bowling and a fun Easter egg hunt are other options, though there is no pressure to join in and those who simply want to relax in a sociable environment can do just that.

The package, which costs £420, includes a standard double room for sole occupancy and half board. Of the three dinners, all include wine with the meal and one is a black-tie event followed by a disco. The break ends after breakfast on Easter Monday.

This stylish four-star is set on Santa Ponsa’s seafront promenade, just yards from the sandy beach. The hotel has not only a ground-level general pool but an infinity pool on the adult-only roof-top terrace.

This small group holiday is offered from £945 (from Stansted) for a package that includes flights, transfers, seven nights in a double room for sole occupancy, breakfast each day and five dinners with wine – enjoyed around one or two large tables – during the week. Regional options include Bristol from £892 and Manchester from £905.  Prices/availability correct at date of issue.
