TUI BLUE is a firm believer in keeping the neighbours happy. That’s why each hotel takes a studied look at its surroundings, before bringing those regional styles and flavours to life for guests. Basically, you’ll already have a handle on the culture before you’ve set foot outside the hotel.
The chefs deliver dishes that not only taste like what you’d get in the nearby tavernas, but also use the same set of ingredients. Put it this way – if you’re at a TUI BLUE hotel in Turkey, you’re not going to find an Italian restaurant. Instead, there’ll be a menu inspired by what the locals like. So if you’re the sort to dip your toe in different culinary waters while you’re away, this is just the ticket.
The same can be said for the interiors and activities. Take the TUI BLUE Sarigerme Park– one of the first hotels in the collection – and you’ll see the case in point. This hotel’s set right on the beach in Turkey’s Dalaman area, so things here are Turkish through-and-through. The spa specialises in Turkish hammam treatments, and on the food front, you can chow down on eastern Mediterranean cuisine.
It’s even more evident at Il Castelfalfi – TUI BLUE SELECTION – a hotel in the Tuscan hills that looks like it’s part of a Medieval village. Aside from its rustic appearance, hearty Italian favourites like handmade ravioli and seabass with buffalo mozzarella are dished up for guests.
There’s no messing around when it comes to quality at our TUI BLUE hotels. That much can be seen at the TUI BLUE Jadran in Croatia. It’s opened last summer, so everything inside is slick, contemporary and fresh-from-the-packet. Things are pretty swish across at the TUI BLUE Palm Garden, too.
That theme’s echoed throughout the collection, to make sure we balance tradition and culture with something fresh. To stop our take on authentic becoming retro or outdated, the design follows a modern brief, as well. Picture smart, art-inspired furniture, tasteful splashes of colour, and a boutique feel to the rooms.
We figured that premium facilities need a premium experience to go with them – so that’s exactly what we’ve delivered. Welcome and farewell lounges take the hassle out of arrival and departure days, and our excursions include some exclusive trips that take you beyond the standard tourist hotspots.
If you’re after a luxurious, romantic escape, pick the adults-only TUI Blue Falesia in Portugal, new for Feburary 2018. This place boasts a secluded clifftop location for an away-from-it-all feel, and lines up a huge pool, a top à la carte eatery and a plush spa.
Be in complete control of your holiday with the TUI BLUE app – the perfect partner for your holiday. Use it to check the daily activity list, request an extra pillow, book a table for dinner, secure a place at an exercise class and find out all you need to know in the surrounding area.
Plus, we know everyone loves to blare out their favourite summer tunes while they’re away, but who’s really got space in their suitcase for a chunky set of speakers? In the spirit of all things modern, our TUI BLUE hotels have removed this tricky little obstacle by adding Bluetooth-ready speakers to almost every room. Just sync up your device to the speakers, and you’re a tap or two away from having your playlist at full volume.
The mod cons don’t stop there, either. We’ve re-jigged the way you can communicate with our hotel staff – who we refer to as BLUE Guides. If you want to stick to what you know, that’s fine. There’ll always be a friendly face ready to recommend a local market or the best nearby sightseeing spots.
People go on holiday for a whole smorgasbord of reasons, from relaxing in the sun to exploring a checklist of historic sites. For some, keep-fit is a big part of the break, and the hotel’s gym and exercise offering is one of the first ports of call.
Now TUI BLUE hotels aren’t all about fitness – you won’t be signing yourself up for some sort of Olympic training camp. What we do offer is a programme that you can tweak and tailor as you please. Across our hotels, you’ve got the option of signing up for one-on-one sessions, joining group classes, and adopting fitness regimes that you can keep up once you’re back on home soil.
You can even create your own bespoke diet plan, which our TUI BLUE chefs will help you stick to at mealtimes. If that sounds a bit serious for you, don’t worry – there are plenty of casual options, as well. Sea-view yoga platforms, slacklines, and trampoline-filled BLUEf!t Parcs will feature among our TUI BLUE hotels.
Try TUI BLUE Rocador in Majorca if you’re after a fitness-focussed holiday. This contemporary hotel has a newly-refurbished gym and spa with all the latest equipment. After your workout, you can treat yourself to a pampering session at the BLUE spa which offers full body massages and facials using traditional techniques and local ingredients.
TUI BLUE Rocador in Majorca is right on a golden stretch of sand and overlooks the pretty cove of Cala Gran.
Enjoy an adults-only escape at TUI BLUE Falesia in Portugal. This place boasts a secluded clifftop location and à la carte dining options.
The TUI BLUE Palm Garden is planted on a long strip of sand. That means watersports galore, and a beach bar where you can watch the sun set.
