Where to go on a luxury holiday in April

Find our travel expert recommendations below

Spring has sprung, Easter is upon us and the Mediterranean is hotting up. April is a great time to get away before the summer rush kicks in, when the northern hemisphere is in bloom and southern Europe is warm and sunny. With the Easter holidays just around the corner, April is a great time to take the kids away, when prices are much more reasonable in comparison with the summer holiday months. Perhaps a luxury African safari or a family beach retreat? Here are our top picks. 



Luxury China Holidays

Japan's spring cherry blossom season is now one of the most popular times to visit the country, and can cities and attractions can get very busy at this time. Meanwhile, in China the blossom season is still relatively off-the-radar. Start in beautiful Beijing where you can combine old and new and spot blossoms at the stunning Summer Palace, before moving on to visit the iconic Great Wall Of China where you'll be rewarded with views of the lush, pink countryside surrounding it.


Luxury Namibia Holidays

Unlike many of its safari counterparts, Namibia is routinely reliable for its pleasant, fresh and dry weather in April. Explore the endless and wonderfully atmospheric Skeleton Coast, an isolated stretch of coast inhabited by sea lion colonies, which enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year. Experience a classic African safari in Etosha National Park, where you’ll likely spot the Big Five, or venture into the Namib Desert to witness the dramatic red sands of Sossusvlei, home to the world’s highest dunes.

Galapagos Islands

Luxury Galapagos Holidays

Although sometimes rather wet, the warm season is considered the best time for wildlife spotting in the Galapagos. April is breeding and nesting season for sea lions, turtles, tortoises and many of the land birds. Much of the land is a blanket of spring flowers and blossom, while the beaches are certainly warm enough for catching some rays. Luxury cruises are an excellent way to explore these truly unique islands, and are perfect when paired with a land-based tour around Ecuador.


Luxury Mexico Holidays

Catch a sun-filled holiday to Mexico just before wet season begins in May. Relax on one of the many stunning beaches, take a cultural trip to fascinating Mayan ruins such as Chichen Itza and Uxmal, or for something a bit more exciting, swim with whale sharks on the Caribbean coast.


Luxury Mozambique Holidays

A trip to Mozambique just as the wet season finishes is the perfect way to get in the spring mood. At the beginning of the dry season, it is still relatively quiet, making it ideal for a luxury getaway on some of Africa’s best beaches, while there are also spectacular diving opportunities that are only available during the dry season.
