Long-haul travel specialist Hayes and Jarvis has launched its 2016 worldwide brochure.
The brochure features travel options for the period from September 2015 to March 2017, with a host of new destinations and hotels as well as expert tips from destination specialists.
Lesley Rollo, managing director of Hayes and Jarvis, said: “This year’s brochure offers some fantastic inspiration for holidays around the world and we have worked extremely hard to bring in a large number of newly added hotels for this year, as well as some exciting new destinations. Our destination specialists are experts at creating bespoke itineraries for our customers and we have taken feedback from them and our customers in our latest selection to enable them to create flexible and bespoke holidays of a lifetime.
“Multi-centre holidays are continuing to grow in popularity as are experiential holidays and getting to know the local cultures, so we have reflected this in the brochure with our helpful tips and new destinations such as the Philippines and Koh Samet.”
One of the biggest additions to this year’s brochure is the Philippines. Hayes and Jarvis will offer tailormade trips to islands such as Cebu, Bohol, Palawan and Boracay as well as two tours including the six night ‘Essential Philippines’ tour, which includes stops in Manila, Bohol and Cebu and the four-night ‘Highlights of the North’ tour featuring Manila and heading north to the rice terraces of Banaue and Baguio City.
Another 18 hotels have been added across the Far East portfolio, including seven in Malaysia, four in Bali, two in the Gili Islands, two in Singapore, two in Lombok and one in Hong Kong.
In Sri Lanka, Hayes and Jarvis has now added the East Coast region of Passikudah. Often compared to the Maldives, the perfect time of year to visit is the UK summer, so the opposite of the west of the island.
In October 2015, the new Ravenala Attitude All Suite Hotel will open in Mauritius, and Hayes and Jarvis is already predicting that this will be a top seller.
In the Middle East and Africa, highlights include 11 new hotels across the region (Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah, Abu Dhabi and Egypt), including two Waldorf Astoria properties (the Dubai Palm Jumeirah and Ras Al Khaimah).
Abu Dhabi is seeing a particular boost in hotel product with four new properties added for the forthcoming year.
Zimbabwe was introduced to the Hayes and Jarvis portfolio earlier this year, and with three safari options to choose from, guests are now able to visit not only Victoria Falls but also Hwange National Park, Lake Kariba and the Mana Pools (great for game viewing).
Access to the island of Zanzibar has also become easier with Oman Air and Qatar both flying to the destination. This year Hayes and Jarvis has added three further hotels to its portfolio.
