Following on from our recent post The Ultimate Stag Do Abroad, today’s blog is all about the ladies!

Pack your bags and venture overseas as we give you two top destinations for a heavenly hen do abroad.

MALTA 

Blessed with near year-round sunshine and wide sweeping bays, this beautiful island, set in crystal clear waters, is an ideal destination for sun seekers, cultural explorers, and water sports fans alike – there’s something here for everyone!

Where to Stay

Situated at the water’s edge, Corinthia Hotel St George’s Bay  is a majestic spectacle overlooking the entrance to a wide, sweeping bay. With stunning, panoramic views over the sparkling Mediterranean, the hotel is the perfect place to enjoy the glorious Maltese sunshine with your besties.

Where to Eat

From floral Maltese olive oil to piquant sun-dried tomatoes and wild capers, sun-sweet figs to local Ġbejniet cheese and hobz-biz-zejt sandwiches, there’s plenty of produce to sample, whether you’re grazing at farmers’ markets or gearing up for a culinary shopping spree.

There are plenty of dining options at Corinthia Hotel St George’s Bay where you can dine al fresco overlooking the bay or start your evening off in style in the sophisticated Pearl Lounge as you sip a signature  Perlaverda Cocktail.

Alternatively get a taste of Mediterranean Malta at the many waterfront eateries, including rustic Il-Kartell, stylish Baia Beach Club, and seafood-loving Tartarun Restaurant.

Caviar & Bull

What to Do

From ancient forts and crumbling castles to hidden passageways and narrow cobbled streets, Malta’s not exactly short of picturesque locations in which to sip some of the island’s best local wine.

The island seamlessly morphs from day to night and as the main shopping districts close in Valletta and Sliema, the bars, restaurants and theatres start to hum. Later on, the crowds move on to the many night clubs, most of which are clustered around Paceville and the waterfronts at Valletta and Vittoriosa which are popular for their regular night cruises.

You haven’t seen Malta until you’ve seen it by sea. Though its ancient sites and gorgeous scenery certainly deserve your attention, the country also happens to host some of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful caves, bays, lagoons, and beaches.

Whether you long for a relaxing retreat, a dip in crystal clear waters or crave a high-octane water sports adventure, there is something for everyone at Corinthia Hotel St George’s Bay.

Malta

Take to the high seas aboard a private chartered yacht, race through the waves on jet skis or delve into the deep to witness the underwater world on a scuba trip.

Sun lovers can lounge by one of the beautiful pools or even take a dip in the Mediterranean Sea, directly accessible from the spacious Lido. And for those who require something a little more restful, the beautiful Apollo Day Spa is the place to be to emerge feeling refreshed and revived.

PRAGUE

For a cultural getaway, head to Prague and discover the magic and mystery of an ancient capital.

Prague

Where to Stay

Crowning one of the hills of this UNESCO World Heritage site and located just minutes from some of the city’s main cultural highlights, Corinthia Hotel Prague beckons with unrivalled panoramic views of this magical city.

Where to Eat

After a busy day exploring the capital, head to The Grill at Corinthia Hotel Prague for dramatic skyline panoramas and an impressive live cooking station which offers a variety of international flavours as well as a charcoal grill.

From Prague’s most classic culinary standard-bearers such as Palffy Palac and Mlejnic, to upstarts like Mlýnec and Kalina, cooking under the banner of “new Prague cuisine”, there are many restaurants to explore that capture the capital’s thriving dining culture.

In the summer months, where better to dine than al fresco along the River Vltava, undoubtedly one of Prague’s best features. From sky-high dining at Ginger & Fred, botanical-inspired décor at Soho+ or relaxed tapas-style fare on La Terrassa’s veranda, Prague’s best riverside restaurants offer far more than an alluring backdrop.

What to Do

As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city centre boasts incredible museums and stunning medieval, baroque and renaissance architecture. Bringing forth talents such as Kafka and Martina Navratilova, it is also famous for Prague Palace, the largest ancient castle in the world.

The medieval cathedral and its surrounding Castle district, together with the baroque streets of Malá Strana on the west bank of the River Vltava, form the centrepiece of many itineraries, but 20th-century Prague too – with its examples of Modernism (Adolf Loos’ Muller Villa is the prime exhibit), Cubism (check out the House of the Black Madonna) and Functionalism (the Veletrzni Palace) is also packed with visitor interest.

Prague may not be able to outrank New York, London or Paris in terms of the scale of its designer shopping, but there is a wide variety of outlets serving everything from big-name fashion to exquisite hand-made souvenirs and flea-market curios.

After a hen weekend exploring and admiring the sights, end your trip in the peaceful tranquillity of the Apollo Day Spa and unwind in an oasis of calm.
