The kids have gone back to school which can only mean one thing – peace and quiet at last!

If you want to get away for a relaxing break without having to worry about being surrounded by hoards of children, this is the perfect time to book. But where are the best destinations for an adult holiday? Read on to find out:


Many parents will understand that kids get tired (and grumpy!) after being on their feet for any length of time, so a sightseeing trip to Marrakech might be unsuitable – which means it’s a great destination for adults to go to. As well as wandering around the many souks and palaces in the city, you’ll get the chance to marvel at the amazing Atlas Mountains. Here you can take a romantic hike through the vast landscape with the other half before exploring one of the villages that sits on the Mountains.

Can you hear that? That’s the sound of silence (and the waves lapping against the shore perhaps). Ok, it might sound a bit cheesy, but a holiday to a Caribbean island such as Barbados, St Lucia or Jamaica is the ultimate relaxing getaway, allowing a couple to spend some quality time together. With tropical beaches and crystal clear waters, you’ll be in absolute bliss.

With flight times over 11 hours from the UK and plenty of adult only resorts, Thailand is a great option if you’re looking to book a holiday with a friend or partner. Many of the most popular regions in Thailand – including Kata Beach, Kamala Beach and Karon Beach – offer hotels that cater exclusively for adults. Those wishing to explore Thailand will be able to visit magnificent palaces, take a speedboat to a picturesque island or grab something to eat at a Floating Market, while relaxing on one of the pristine beaches here is the perfect way to unwind.

Las Vegas

Often referred to as the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’, a visit to Las Vegas is certainly more appealing to adults than children. Vegas can be as crazy as you want it to be with some of the most famous hotels and casinos in the world, many of which can be found along the Fremont Street Experience and the Las Vegas Strip, as well as plenty of bars and restaurants. Away from the roulette wheels and slot machines though, a tour of the Grand Canyon is always an unforgettable experience, whether you want to go hiking or look down on it from a helicopter.
