The ones just off the tourist trail that open up a new realm of possibility. They may take a little more effort to get to, but isn’t there a saying about things that come to those who wait?Rooms Hotel Kazbegi, Stepantsminda, GeorgiaNestled in the Caucasus Mountains, Rooms Hotel Kazbegi is situated in Stepantsminda, at the foot of the imposing Mount Kazbek. Up until 2012, the region attracted only the most intrepid of travellers, undaunted by the lack of modern accommodation and limited accessibility. However, since the opening of the 156-room hotel, the destination has re-emerged as a stunning and accessible retreat, offering first-class hiking, climbing and paragliding, alongside some of the best heli-skiing in the world. The hotel is defined by innovative design that reflects the cultural and visual heritage of its environs. Through the use of natural, indigenous materials, locally produced furniture and traditional handicraft, Rooms Hotel Kazbegi reflects Georgia’s heritage as well as its contemporary identity.Piet Boon Bonaire, Kralendijk, BonaireWith flamingos frolicking in clear salt ponds and sea turtles diving through the turquoise sea, the island of Bonaire is the storybook perfect Caribbean idyll. Set along the seafront in Kralendijk, the island’s sedate capital, Piet Boon Bonaire comprises 9 individually styled villas designed by renowned Dutch designer, Piet Boon. With its reef-lined coast, it is no surprise that Bonaire is a world-class diving destination, and the coral reef is thriving thanks to the island’s innovative sub-zero coral farm. The island is also gaining a well-deserved reputation as a hot windsurfing hub – even boasting a former world champion in Sorobon native Kiri Thode. A thriving art scene provides another facet to Bonaire’s identity, and Piet Boon Bonaire’s villas play host to works from acclaimed local sculptor Germaine Nijdam, granting guests a private viewing.Furnas Boutique Hotel Thermal & Spa, São Miguel, AzoresLocated 1287km off the coast of Portugal in the mid-Atlantic, the Azores Islands are one of the most sustainable destinations in the world. The 54-room Furnas Boutique Hotel Thermal & Spa is situated on São Miguel, one of the 9 volcanic archipelago islands, which is defined by blankets of green forest, thermal water springs, lagoons and marine life. Formerly Furnas’ thermal centre, the hotel was conceptualised as a celebration of the island’s natural bounty. São Miguel’s thermal spring water enriches the hotel’s spa and wellness centre, and a grocery store selling local produce takes pride of place in the lobby. The island itself offers a wealth of activities: from whale-watching and surfing, to hiking and geotourism trails.Casa de la Flora, Phang Nga, ThailandFlawlessly placed on a pristine coastline of Khao Lak, Casa de la Flora’s privileged location is for those seeking the utmost solitude. A dazzling addition to the lush island, this tranquil resort of 36 low-rise villas provides spacious privacy in unspoiled surroundings. Here, sleek cubist structures evoke Brutalist sensibilities only to be softened by the verdant green of tropical flora. The villas by VaSLab Architecture have their own private pool, and the staff provides genuine Thai hospitality where rest and relaxation is paramount. For those looking to expand their skillset, Thai cooking classes and aqua yoga are on offer, while the staff is also happy to set up island hoping adventures to secluded secret spots.Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img read more

When is the next Steam Sale the Summer Sale 2019 is now

first_imgBlack Friday Black Friday News Deals Here at Trusted Reviews, we understand two key things: Steam sales are one of the best ways to bolster your library, and it can be difficult to keep track of when they’re going on. So, we’ve made an essential guide of when you should expect the next Steam Sale and when a sale is on, as is the case with the current Steam Summer Sale 2019, we’ll bring you some of the must-have deals so that you don’t miss out. What’s not to love?Steam sales take place throughout the year, and offer up some of the best-in-class PC gaming deals. Now, as Steam feels the pressure from Epic’s Game Store and other digital marketplaces, expect these deals to get even better.While Valve rarely releases details of its Steam Sales in advance, we keep track of all of the latest rumours and news to make sure you’re kept up to date about when and where to spend all your money.When is the next Steam Sale? 2019 dates and timesSteam’s summer blowout is now live and it will run through until July 9.Related: Best Gaming PCIt’s better to get your fill now, because after this there likely won’t be another suitable sale until Halloween, so look at some of the deals below and get a big handful of those games, why don’t you?Steam Summer Sale 2019 — What are the best deals?Here’s our pick of some of the best games you can get in Steam’s 2019 Summer Sale. If any of these take your fancy, move quick, the sale ends on July 9.Ape Out – £7.69 (30% off)You’re an APE. You want to get OUT. Simple but effective, this one offers up stylish simian ultraviolence, and it’s one of the better indie action games of the last few months.Football Manager 2019 – £12.91 (66% off)Football manager is probably one of the best strategy titles in existence, with a level of simulation around the beautiful game that is perhaps obscene. If you skip this one because you don’t like Football, that’s a major own goal, it’s a unique story-generating machine like no other.Related: Best PS4 dealsResident Evil 2 – £29.69 (34% off)Quite simply the best horror game released this year. There are several pretenders, but this is a perfect example of how remakes should be handled, and a zombie game that makes its zombies feel terrifying.Total War: Warhammer II – £19.99 (50% off)Wouldn’t Total War be fun if instead of Samurai or medieval knights, it was lizardmen, elves and vampires giving each other a good shivving? That’s the basic premise of Total War: Warhammer and this sequel is brilliant. Bonus deal – the original is only £9.99 a the moment, also going for 50 percent off.Yakuza 0 – £7.49 (50% off)Yakuza 0 is the best Yakuza game, and by extension, probably one of the better open-world crime games. It’s not GTA, it doesn’t feel a thing like Saints Row, and it has a tone all of its own. This lets you explore an 80’s era Tokyo, and we can’t recommend it enough.Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – £24.99 (50% off)Do yourself a favour and play this one as Kassandra. Using Kassandra, stab, sneak and stalk your way around ancient Greece, in the pinnacle of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. While there’s DLC available, this game should last a casual player until Christmas, there’s rafts of things to see and do.Surviving Mars – £9.99 (50% off)One of Paradox’s less successful strategy games, Surviving Mars is still a Paradox title, and Surviving Mars has you building a Mars colony. Paradox’s after-launch support is some of the best in the business, so there’s plenty more content still to come, and although keeping humans alive on Mars isn’t easy, this will keep you coming back for more.What are you looking to buy in the next Steam sale?
