It features 21 new boutique hotels, including the SALA Rattanakosin in Bangkok, Thailand which has 15 rooms and floor to ceiling windows with views over Wat Arun; the Princess d’Annam in Phan Thiet, Vietnam, designed by award-wining architect Tan Hock Beng; and the Essence Hoi An Hotel & Spa, Vietnam, which opened in August 2013 and has 70 rooms.
There are 12 new hotels exclusive to Kuoni guests in the UK, such as the recently opened Bandara Villas Phuket; plus exclusive room types, some including free spa treatments. New destinations in the brochure are the Palawan in the Philippines, ideal for divers and kayakers; and the island of Gili Meno located off the north west coast of Lombok in Indonesia. More experiences have been added such as a Street Food Tour in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Customers will join a culinary expert to visit the markets used by locals that aren’t featured in guidebooks. The tour includes sampling Vietnamese cuisine and learning about local traditions, daily life and the culture of Vietnam.
Cruise additions include a Princess Cruises tour of Japan; plus an Azamara Quest Stay & Cruise holiday, discovering Indonesia.
