Your 2018 Travel Destiny is Written in the Stars

Struggling to pick the perfect destination for your next amazing holiday? Why not let the stars guide you! Your star sign traits can provide some insightful inspiration for your next trip away - a destination that’s the ideal fit for you. 

Whether you’re an imaginative Pisces after a dreamy destination, a fiery Leo looking for a wild experience or a Taurean who likes to indulge, here are some great suggestions for your next adventure.


Water: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces

Water signs can be intuitive, sensitive, intense, emotional and nurturing. Family vacations or getaways with close friends are ideal for water signs – and as Scorpios like to truly unwind, Pisces love dreamy destinations and Cancers want to relax and indulge, we recommend a weekend trip to iconic Paris. Stay in a stylish apartment where you can relax on a boat ride on the Seine, enjoy traditional French cuisine and soak up the romantic atmosphere. 

Where to stay: Stay in the heart of Paris at the beautiful Apartments Du Louvre, a perfect home away from home. Set in a quiet street in Les Halles, the fully equipped apartments boast an ideal location just 650 yards from the world-famous Louvre Museum and a short walk to the high-end shopping along the Champs-Élysées.


Fire: Aries, Leo and Sagittarius

Fire signs are (not surprisingly) fiery, energetic, lively, fun and optimistic people. They want an adventurous holiday where they can be constantly on the move, right where the action is. A South African safari holiday is the perfect trip – combining beaches and restaurants with traveling across African plains to spot the most incredible wildlife and meet new people. 

Where to stay: Dungbeetle River Lodge offers safari-style accommodation right on the banks of the Sundays River. The terrace decks offer striking river views and guests can enjoy a freshly cooked breakfast each morning. This is a great base for exploring what South Africa has to offer and it’s just a few miles from the Addo Elephant National Park.


Earth: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn

Earth signs are practical, organised, resourceful, ambitious, and curious. While Taureans like to self-indulge, Virgos like a detailed itinerary. Try a trip to the gorgeous Napa Valley in California, USA where you can indulge in food, drink and relaxation to your heart’s content. You can also take part in wine tours, go horseback riding, experience the Napa Valley Wine Train or explore the surrounding countryside. 

Where to stay: Carneros Resort & Spa is perched atop Napa Valley and has three outdoor pools, three gourmet restaurants and an award-winning spa. The suites and cottage come with a furnished patio, outdoor dining area, outdoor shower and guests can make use of the free bicycle hire to explore the grounds. Buena Vista Winery, Viansa Winery, Cline Cellars and other Napa Valley wineries are just a short drive away.


Air: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius

Air signs are often adventurous, sociable, independent, open-minded, inventive and curious. While Geminis like a challenge, Libras want a balance between peace and variety. Because Aquarians also like their independence, we recommend an exciting ski holiday to Banff, Canada where you can take part in extreme activities or simply relax with a hot drink and some delicious food in the crisp mountain air. 

Where to stay: Moose Hotel & Suites is just steps away from the heart of Banff and features a spa centre and on-site bar, with all unites featuring a patio or a balcony for you to relax. The onsite Meadow Spa & Pools offers treatment rooms, an outdoor hot pool and an indoor swimming pool, as well as rooftop hot pools with views of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

Take advantage of The Ultimo’s ‘gastrology’ and ‘experiology’, perfect for planning where to eat and drink and what to see and do as aligned with your star chart.
