The places the Lemongrass Marketing team are dreaming of

For now, travel from home.

Written by Lemongrass Marketing on 9th Apr 2020

It is times like these you appreciate the freedom of travel. We have all had to press pause on our travel plans for the time being but delay, don’t cancel. We will all be able to explore this beautiful planet again soon. For now, travel from home. Here at Lemongrass we have been dreaming about all the places we have been to and all the places we want to visit, so here is a list of some of the hotels and destinations on our bucket list.

‘I’m excited to go back to the Isle of Skye. My favourite place to stay (and almost more importantly eat) is the Three Chimneys – they are exclusively working with small, artisan food producers and the food, rooms and views over Loch Dunvegan are outstanding. It’s pretty much as remote as it gets on Skye. I am also already browsing suitable cottages by Boutique Retreats in preparation for a big reunion will all of our friends over New Year. An annual tradition that we are determined to uphold in 2020. One of my favourite cities is Berlin. I have lots of friends there and really love the new Motel One Berlin Alexanderplatz – or I will be staying at 25 hours Hotel Bikini Berlin. And finally Vietnam and Sweden are on my bucket list for 2021. So I am eyeing up Six Senses Ninh Bay’ as well as Arctic Bath.’

‘I have always wanted to visit New York so I am spending some quality time at home refining my itinerary for when I do get to visit. I have a trip to Lisbon booked for later in the summer, if I am unable to go I will postpone to later in the year. I can’t wait to try the famous Portuguese sweet treats and of course take the quick trip along the coast to Cascais, here I will be trying my hand at surfing. I had a long weekend staying in a shepherds hut at The Artist Residence in Oxfordshire booked in May however, I have postponed this for later in the year. The shepherds hut is tucked away overlooking the herb garden – a cosy bolthole, with double bed, log burner and a compact en-suite bathroom with rainfall shower – I can’t wait.’

Alex Liste, Account Manager

‘Having just delayed my two and a half week holiday around Japan, I can’t wait to get some new dates in the diary and go on that holiday of a lifetime. From crazy tech filled city adventures in Tokyo to exploring Japan’s nature in Hakone and Kanazawa. I am excited to book a stay at Whatley Manor, I have been watching the 15th series of BBC Two’s Great British Menu and among the first episode’s chef contestants was Niall Keating, Executive Chef at Whatley Manor, his food looks irresistible! Galicia will be my first trip though, I am looking forward to visiting ‘home’ to see my family and to also enjoy some great Spanish home cooking and walks on the beaches and the cobbled streets of Santiago de Compostela. I will also be booking a trip to Hacienda de San Rafael, it is perfect for anyone looking for a genuine and authentic Andalusian experience.’

Victoria Martinelli, Executive Assistant

I’ve been longing to return to Puglia for the food, wine and the people. The ancient towns, extravagant churches, the culture, the olive-green seas and did I mention the food? I will be booking a trip to Costa Rica purely for the wildlife including the sloths and the jaguars and I will be staying at Origins Lodge and the Kasiiya Papagayo Retreat.  I would love to go to visit an Orangutan school and Borneo would be the dream destination to do.’

Abi Best, Commercial Director

I am already browsing Canopy and Stars website for our first family trip when we are allowed to travel again. I think my son would love to explore the Devon or Cornwall coastline and Canopy and Stars have some amazing glamping options. Vienna is my favourite destination so I will certainly be booking a long weekend there, there is a host of new bars and restaurants I want to try too.’
