Single Travellers Take-off on New Holidays with Friendship Travel

Two brand new holidays for single travellers take off this month. Friendship Travel is Hosting its first guests at the five-star Galini Wellness Spa and Resort in Kamena Vourla on mainland Greece on 19 May, with a week’s all-inclusive from only £989.

That includes a double room for sole occupancy (no single supplement to pay), as well as flights to Athens from Stansted, transfers and the support of a Friendship Travel Host, plus all drinks and sociable meals.

The seafront hotel enjoys a fabulous spot facing across the bay to the island of Evia. Facilities include thermal and freshwater pools, a superb spa, restaurant and two bars. The little resort of Kamena Vourla features seafront cafes, a promenade and hot springs, and is a great base for trips to Evia or to the ancient site of Delphi.

After the 19 May holiday, subsequent dates are in September. As well as Stansted, flights are available from other London airports, Manchester, Edinburgh and Dublin.

On 23 May, the first group departs to Palermo in Sicily – also new for 2019 – where guests are Hosted at the centrally-located Cristal Palace Hotel on a seven-night package that includes a hop-on-hop-off sightseeing tour of the city, a full day’s excursion to Mt Etna and a day at Mondello beach.

As always, each single traveller has his/her own double room at no extra coast. Breakfast every day and three dinners at the hotel are included, and on a fourth night the group enjoys a guided walking tour of Palermo’s foodie haunts, grazing at street food stalls along the way.

Prices start at £1199 from Stansted for this fascinating combination of sun, sights and sea, all Hosted by a Friendship Travel representative. Subsequent dates are in June, July and September. Other London airports are also available, as are flights from Liverpool and Dublin.

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.
