Last minute Xmas and NYE breaks in Turkey for single travellers

New for 2021: Friendship Travel launch 5 Star Hotel on Lara Beach, Antalya, Turkey

Single travellers wanting to enjoy either a spontaneous festive trip or see in New Year in the sun can now book a last-minute 5-star, all-inclusive hotel break in Turkey – with no single supplement payable – from just £1195 for 7 nights including flights, transfers, meals and accommodation (price quoted ex Gatwick).

10-night and 14-night breaks are also available with flights from London, Dublin, Manchester and Birmingham.

Single holidays specialist, Friendship Travel has just secured the Melas Lara hotel for single guests or solo travellers to enjoy a spontaneous break on Antalya’s most popular beach, Lara. With 15km of soft sand, Lara is known for its upmarket hotels and is just a short distance from Antalya airport. The city centre and old quarter of Kaleici, which is surrounded by a Roman Wall is also just a short drive or bus ride away.

According to Column McLornan, Friendship Travel MD, the last-minute launch will suit those travellers who are now having to find a ‘Morocco alternative’, now that the north African country has closed its borders again to UK and Irish travellers.

Guests will enjoy the company of a Friendship Travel host throughout their trip, up to 9 hours of sunshine and top temperatures hovering around 20 degrees.

Melas Lara Hotel has a lagoon style outdoor pool, and heated whirlpool and heated indoor pool. There’s a range of themed nights and live entertainment, several bars and an a la carte restaurant (the latter subject to availability and reservation). There is also a Turkish bath and spa where guests can enjoy a massage, facial and other beauty treatments.
