Sports holidays

Luxury sports holidays for individuals and families to selected hotels and resorts around the world

Sailing holidays

For many the pleasures of sailing start with learning to sail a simple dinghy – the skills of tacking and jibing being best learnt in the warmer waters of the Mediterranean and Caribbean, where depending on your location, wind conditions are perfect for beginners through to the experts. Dinghy sailing can be arranged from several of our luxury hotels and resorts either on a daily basis or as part of a longer sailing course. If you are interested in learning the skills of dinghy sailing or are looking for a holiday where you can indulge in your passion for the sport, then give Expressions Holidays a call and we will be pleased to advise you on the best resorts and locations.

Tennis holidays

Tennis holidays with Expressions Holidays can be arranged in a variety of ways. We feature many hotels where there are extensive and high-quality tennis courts (usually clay or hard courts) and we can either provide you with all the information you need and perhaps pre-book some hours’ hire before you go, or we can arrange for you to have private tennis coaching sessions.

Golf holidays

There is no better way to enjoy a golfing holiday than to combine a stay in a beautiful hotel with superb facilities and have the pleasure of a few rounds of golf right on your doorstep, particularly when both are set amidst stunning scenery and an invigorating climate. Many of the luxury hotels and resorts we feature on our website have golf courses on the premises or very nearby. Others are great as a base for driving out to visit a variety of golf courses in the region, where of course there are plenty of other sights to see on the days when you need a rest from the fairway. For those who wish to have a short golfing break in Europe we can recommend golf courses in France, Italy, Spain and Portugal, whilst for those who wish to travel further afield there are many excellent golf courses in Mauritius, Sri Lanka and the Caribbean.

Water sports holidays

For many of our clients, whatever the age, the thrill of participating in a range of water sports whilst on holiday is one of the key ingredients of a successful and enjoyable holiday. From windsurfing and dinghy sailing to kayaking and scuba diving, the range of water sports activities that can be enjoyed at many of our hotels and resorts is truly outstanding. From a simple one-off try to a more serious desire to improve your skills, our hotels and resorts allow you a taste of sporting success.

Walking holidays

A walking holiday is a perfect way to appreciate the natural beauty of the country you are in, discovering the contours of the land and all they hold at your own pace and under your own steam. Depending on how much walking you want to do, Expressions Holidays can organise a holiday where walking is the focal point of your holiday, or taking a more relaxed approach, we can arrange for one or two beautiful walking itineraries based around your hotel. Make the most of your holiday by going tramping in New Zealand or Sri Lanka.

Sporting academies for children

We feature several hotels and resorts that run academies for children in a range of sports during the school holidays. Academies might include football, sailing, dance, windsurfing, swimming, tennis, golf, rugby and triathlon. The academies are usually arranged according to age group and the number of hours’ coaching will vary from place to place. Resorts noted for their academies for children in school holidays are Martinhal Beach Resort in Portugal, La Manga in Spain and Sani Resort in Greece.

Diving holidays

Because of its fascinating appeal and the unique underwater experience, the opportunity to learn scuba diving, or to enjoy a day’s scuba diving in the company of like-minded individuals and PADI-trained instructors is now offered by many of the world’s best hotels and resorts. If you are holidaying in any of the tropical scuba-diving havens of the world – from the Maldives to the Caribbean and the Great Barrier Reef and beyond, then scuba diving is a must. Expressions Holidays offers many hotels and resorts where scuba diving is possible, offered by a professional diving company on the premises or nearby. Let us pre-book tuition for you according to your level of competency before you arrive on holiday.
