News in brief:
Save 10% on Virgin Holidays this weekend
Virgin Holidays is running a special offer from today to midnight on Monday. It offers additional savings of up to 10% on sale prices.
You can book for departures until the end of 2023.
I don’t have any further information except for the small print (spot the typo):
“Up to 10% saving applies on a new package holiday where the price includes flight and accommodation or flight and car, booked between 00:01 Friday 28th January and 23:59 Monday 31st January 2022 , for travel 29th January 2022 to 31 December 2023. Saving applies to the total cost of the holiday, excluding taxes, APD, surcharges, and other compulsory charges which may apply at the time of booking …. Saving cannot be used in conjunction with any other special offer, promotion, or discount including the Frequent Virgin Club and any other affinity discount.“
Full details should be on the Virgin Holidays home page here.
Save 10% at Harvey Nichols
This is split into 2 x £50 credits, one for January to June and one for July to December.
For a few days – the details are not published – Harvey Nichols is offering 10% off (virtually) everything. You need to be a member of the new Harvey Nichols Rewards scheme to get the discount, but if you have Amex Platinum you should be joining this anyway to get additional savings.
If you are buying online, you need to use code REWARDS10 on the payment page. The deal is also available instore.
Our article on why you should join Harvey Nichols Rewards is here.
There is also a ‘gifts’ section here which may be more relevant for a one-off purchase at around the £50 mark.
Kimpton opens its first resort in South East Asia – Kimpton Kitalay Samui
IHG’s luxury lifestyle brand, Kimpton, has opened Kimpton Kitalay Samui, its first resort in South East Asia.
Kimpton Kitalay Samui is located on Choengmon Beach in the northeast of Koh Samui, close to the airport. It is described as being in “a quiet cove along the pristine beach, far from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng.”
“Standing upon double-tiered, stilt-suspended platforms, the resort is an enchanting fusion of contemporary design and traditional accents. Local Thai design agency, P49 Deesign integrated rustic wooden elements from repurposed driftwood, nostalgic veranda-style features and timeless accents such as local artwork by Thai artisans. Earthy palettes and wave-inspired terrace furnishings lend rustic character to the 138 design-led rooms and pool villas, complemented by interwoven Thai basketry motifs on the bathroom floors and local artwork upon the walls.”
Two photos are above, and you can find out more on the IHG website here.
