Tropical paradise less than 3 hours from London

This five-star haven looks like it has been sky lifted from Thailand and dropped straight into a giant pine forest in Spain.

I'm really not at all a resort kinda gal so it was surprising to me that I wanted to tell you all about this one but it's just such a unique concept.

At first, it really threw me and to be honest I didn't really get it but the more I looked and thought the more it makes perfect sense.

This five-star haven looks like it has been sky lifted from Thailand and dropped straight into a giant pine forest in Spain.

The location has been really carefully chosen - set in the Puig Campagna Mountains in the Sierra Cortina region, overlooking the mediterranean sea, this site takes advantage of the microclimate and the position has allowed the owners to raise over 300 tropical plants. Because it's warm almost every day they are flourishing and have created an authentic Asian feel to the resort.

Now personally I would prefer to explore the wider area than stay within an enclave hotel complex but being freed from the gruelling 12 hour flight to Bangkok , especially yet still getting the oriental experience is really something to make you stop and think.

This could be a great thing if you just want to indulge yourself in oriental luxury without the hassle, want the ultimate Thai spa break, want to surprise someone with something memorable or you just have the kids in tow and want somewhere they can be safe and entertained.

Plus if you can tear yourself away from the fabulous five restaurants on-site, there is nothing to stop you nipping out for a sneaky paella or a day out in the beautiful Guadalest Valley so it's two holidays in one.

Looking at the pool it's incredible that you could be taking a dip in it just thirty minutes from Alicante airport.

There are two nearby golf courses and the hotel can arrange for you to visit them.

If golf is not your bag there are a myriad of wellbeing options on offer such as Tai Chi, Yoga, Chi Kung and stretching classes or choose to relax with cocktails, an oriental cooking class or just treat yourself to afternoon tea.

There really is a mountain of entertainment for the little ones with entertainers, craft workshops, football, film screenings and paintings. They even have a mini dinner so that they can make new friends and meantime you can relax together until they return to you at 11pm.

They have a similar arrangement for the teenagers but with events more designed for them such as pilates, dancing and themed parties.
