Top 7 Holiday Destinations For Teachers

The school holidays are a hugely popular time for sunny getaways. As well as families jetting off to spend time with their loved ones, people who work term-time are often on the lookout for a well-earned break in the sun. If you’re a teacher hoping to find a dreamy adult-only escape for a great price this year, take a look at our handy round-up of holidays for teachers. Your dreams of sea, sun, sand and relaxation will be a reality in no time!

Majorca, Balearic Islands

Majorca is one of our favourite destinations because of its beautiful beaches, sizzling sun, short flight time and amazing value deals. This island in the Med is known to have plenty of family-friendly hotels, but don’t be fooled – there are also tonnes of idyllic resorts just for adults to stay at during the holidays (we’d recommend visiting in the May half term or summer six weeks). One of our favourite hotels is the stunning Alua Soul Mallorca Resort.

The radiant Alua Soul Mallorca Resort is close to the popular town of Cala D’or and has three outdoor pools to choose from as well as a lovely beachfront location. The adult-only label means you’ll be able to have a peaceful summer escape in the most gorgeous surroundings. When you’re hungry, you can choose from two buffet restaurants or an a la carte restaurant, or you could grab yourself a light bite from the beach and poolside snack bar. With live entertainment in the evening after a day of soaking up the sun, there’s nothing this place doesn’t have!

Boa Vista, Cape Verde

Take off for total tranquility by bright turquoise waters with a heavenly trip to Boa Vista in Cape Verde. Those who like to totally slow down and unwind on their holidays will fall in love with this stunning group of islands just off the west coast of Africa. You can expect delightful weather all year round, as well as lavish resorts on sprawling, unspoiled beached just perfect for relaxing. One of our favourite hotels here is the TUI BLUE Cabo Verde.

When it comes to adult-only luxury, you simply couldn’t ask for more than you get at TUI BLUE For Two hotels. The polished, contemporary design combined with outstanding facilities and serene surroundings make this hotel ideal for teachers wanting to treat themselves. There are four beautiful restaurants to choose from on your stay, as well as two outdoor pools to take a dip in. Want to make your holiday extra special? You can opt to upgrade to a swanky swim-up room or an oceanfront room with a jacuzzi. Heaven on Earth!

Crete, Greek Islands

Want an escape that has both fun and relaxation in abundance? Explore fascinating culture among dreamy mountain landscapes on the glorious island of Crete. You’ll get a real taste of Greece on this island, with phenomenal food, breathtaking beaches and beautiful weather – especially over the summer. For a holiday to Crete filled with divine cocktails and endless captivating sea views, we love the cliffside TUI BLUE Elounda Village.

This heavenly hotel is another from the TUI BLUE For Two collection, so again, you can expect the best of the best. It’s perched on a clifftop, but a private beach is still within reach down a set of steps just by the hotel. If you prefer a pool day, there are three tiered pools interlinked by picturesque waterfalls, finished perfectly with an infinity pool overlooking the twinkling Mediterranean Sea. There are four restaurants and a beach bar where you can head for evening drinks and chilled entertainment. Perfect!

Tenerife, Canary Islands

Tenerife has long been one of our most popular destinations. It’s such a great all-rounder, with a brilliant range of hotels, plenty of excursions to go on and one of the world’s most famous water parks. You’ll be greeted with sunshine no matter when you visit thanks to its spot in the Canary Island archipelago, and with the contrast of tranquil beaches and vibrant nightlife, you can take your escape at any pace you want.

One of our favourite adult-only hotels in Tenerife is the Atlantic Mirage in Puerto De La Cruz. It’s sleek and sophisticated, with gorgeous rooms and rooftop hot tubs. When you stay at this hotel, you’re conveniently just a short walk away from a volcanic beach, as well as being a 15-minute stroll away from the centre of Puerto De La Cruz where you’ll find a quaint harbour and a scenic Old Town. With tasty food, in-water sun loungers and a deluxe spa if you fancy treating yourself to some pampering, it has all the ingredients of a relaxing escape.

Rhodes, Greek Islands

The Greek Islands never miss when it comes to fun and rejuvenating holidays in the sun. Rhodes is one of our favourites, with picturesque, traditional seaside resorts and fascinating pieces of history to explore. The beaches are expansive and there are some truly stunning hotels to stay at, one of the most popular for adult-only holidays being the beautiful five-star TUI BLUE Atlantica Imperial Resort.

When you stay at this delightful TUI BLUE hotel, you can expect luxurious facilities in breathtaking surroundings. You’ll never get bored of the sparkling views over the Aegean Sea – you can see them from the lagoon-style pool or as you sip on your evening cocktails from one of the hotel’s swish bars. If you ever want to get out of the hotel and explore, you’ll find the location to be fantastic – you’ll be nestled between the lively resorts of Lindos and Faliraki, so there’s lots going on just a stone’s throw away.

Costa Del Sol, Spain

Costa Del Sol – the ‘sun coast’! How could we not include this little slice of Spanish paradise? It’s one of the most popular summer destinations and with good reason. This sunny stretch of the Andalucian coastline is bursting with activities and lined with world-class hotels teachers are bound to love. If you’re hoping to get a typical holiday fix of sun, sea, sand and total relaxation, this destination is certainly one to note.

Want to find a holiday that has plenty of little luxuries and all the sun you could ask for? Check out the four-star RIU Monica Hotel in Nerja. It’s the perfect retreat for switching off and watching the world go by with a refreshing drink in hand and warming rays hitting your skin. The hotel is right by the soft, sandy beach of Playa de la Torrecilla and has the perfect location for those wanting to try out local bars and tapas restaurants, not to mention there’s a shopping centre just a five-minute walk away. It’s got everything!

Dalaman, Turkey

Are you a sun worshipper who likes baking hot rays and destinations with endless adventure? If so, you’ll fall completely in love with the Dalaman region of Turkey. There’s so much to discover in this dreamy destination, from spotless beaches and mythical caves to boat trips and bouncing nightlife. One of the most popular parts of the region is Marmaris – a sun hotspot that’s long a favourite holiday destination among Brits.

There are plenty of hotels to choose from in Marmaris, but one we particularly love for those seeking an adult-only summer break is the Sea Star. This four-star haven has incredible ratings on TripAdvisor and boasts its own private beach and pier. You can spend your days chilling by one of the pools whilst looking out onto the twinkling sea, or you could wander around 10 minutes to get to the lovely town of Icmeler.
