My Expert Areas

I have recently joined the Sovereign team and am very excited to have the opportunity to visit many more of our destinations, as well as share my passion for travel with you on the other end of the phone. My favourite place to holiday is Lanzarote, one of the main reasons being its year-round warm climate. I love relaxing on the beautiful sandy beaches, as well as taking a venture into Timanfaya national park – also known as the Fire Mountains due to its dramatic volcanic landscape and activity.

Most memorable travel experience

The service at the Ritz Carlton, Abama hotel in Tenerife is world-class. I was made to feel like royalty, everything was taken care of for me and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Every other aspect of the hotel is just as good. In fact, I’d go as far as to say this hotel is virtually flawless.

Favourite hidden gem

The fact that you can shop in the more commercial resorts of Tenerife may not exactly be a secret, but what some people don’t know is that Tenerife is a duty-free zone. There are plenty of quality brands that can be bought for much less than on our high streets. Resorts such as Costa Adeje have vibrant local markets brimming with fresh produce, so there are also charming, authentic shopping experience that can be had here.

Top travel tip

If you book to stay at Daios Cove in Crete, make sure you take them up on their complimentary breakfast in bed offer, which is only available to Sovereign guests. Some flights from the UK land in Crete late in the evening, so this is the perfect way to catch up on some rest the following morning.

Favourite Sovereign hotel

The Bahia Del Duque in Tenerife is a well-known family resort and if you stay here you will soon see why. It’s part of the ‘Leading Hotels of the World’ and has a unique colonial theme which makes it unlike any other hotel. The children’s facilities are excellent and there is plenty of choice of restaurants - all of which have a children’s menu. As you know, I rather enjoy my shopping, so the fact that the hotel is close to a large shopping centre makes the location perfect for me!
