Partners and our honest approach

We have partnered up with some of the finest golf and beach hotels of the world, hand selected, following many years of research and trading. We will endeavour to make sure that at the time of booking, we will make sure we match up your expectations with the right hotel and golf course combination. We will listen carefully to where you have been in the past, to get a feel for what you are used to and we will listen to what kind of golf course you prefer and what level of difficulty you are seeking.

As our top quality partners are mostly  5 star luxury hotels, we do not expect generally there to be any reasons for complaint during your stay, the most important thing we feel is recommending the right venue for you. If we feel the hotel you have recommended is not right for you, we will tell you and recommend an alternative hotel, eg if we feel you prefer to be in a quieter hotel, we may recommend an adult only, or a boutique property.

Some golf courses on resorts are incredibly tough and we will make sure we tell you, perhaps recommending another venue with a more playable course, which is one of the reasons we will ask for your handicap.

We will be looking at partnering up with companies like the ITC Travel Group, Carrier Travel, Beachcomber Tours & IF ONLY  for our long haul holidays, when you prefer booking flights in an all in package.

We will also be offering special overseas sporting events.. such as tennis, horse racing, golf and rugby tournaments. In these types of trip, your holiday will be financially protected by the ATOL licence of the business partner e.g. the ITC Travel Group as the principal operator. We will make sure that you are aware of this at the time of booking.

Our top 10 partners in this unique portfolio of island venues are:-

The Ritz-Carlton, Abama, The Hotel Las Madrigueras Golf & Spa, The Melia Hacienda del Conde, Casa de Campo Resort & Villas, Half Moon Jamaica, Verdura Resort, Elba Palace Golf & Vital Hotel, The Sheraton Gran Canaria, Anahita Golf & Spa Resort and the Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort.

Pump Street Chocolate – Bakers and Chocolate Makers

Pump Street is an award-winning bakery in the village of Orford on Suffolk’s Heritage Coast.  After mastering naturally-leavened bread, we ventured into making chocolate from beans we import directly from single estates and cooperatives around the world.

We are proud to produce the finest craft chocolate.  Provenance and process are key to our finished bars.  We source cacao from the best growers who ferment and dry the beans at origin.  We then tailor our roasting, grinding and coaching to yield the best tasting chocolate possible.
