Accor is offering travellers the chance to have a ‘Take Two’ on their missed holiday plans and celebrations.

‘Take Two’ deals are available at hotels, resorts and apartments across Australia with room rates from $95 per night.

Accor has more than 340 Allsafe hotels, resorts and apartments to choose from in Australia, including international brands such as Sofitel, MGallery, Art Series, Pullman, Swissôtel, Grand Mercure, Peppers, The Sebel, Mantra, Novotel, Mercure, Tribe, BreakFree, ibis, ibis Styles and ibis Budget.

Accor’s ‘Take Two’ deals are valid for new bookings made 31 January next year, for stays up until 13 months from the booking date, and are available exclusively.

For instance, positioned in the heart of Surfers Paradise, just 160m from the beach, Mantra on View Hotel is available from $136 per night.


 Aboriginal Australia: the oldest living culture on Earth.

Australia isn’t just home to the oldest living culture on Earth: it can also lay claim to an exceptionally rare suite of Indigenous tourism experiences.

But incredibly – despite being highly sought after by global travellers – many of these activities are virtually unheard of by most Australians.


 Tasmania’s remote south-west: characterised by isolated beaches.

Take a private expedition into Tasmania’s remote south-west next year and enjoy a 5 per cent discount when booking out the Odalisque vessel.

Visit Port Davey, Bathurst Harbour — Tasmania’s last frontier and a region characterized by rugged, mountainous landscapes, white sandy beaches, mirrored waterways and panoramic views.

The purpose-built vessel allows explorers the opportunity to experience and appreciate the south-west while experiencing full comfort and safety.

Fresh Tasmanian produce and fine wines are a definite highlight of the escapade.

A personal chef will cater to any and all needs, preparing meals to perfectly match palate and dietary needs.


Rydges Canberra: a multi-million dollar renovation.

Rydges Canberra, formerly Rydges Capital Hill, has completed its multi-million dollar renovation to deliver an invigorated guest experience.

The works have transformed the arrival lobby, reception, lounge and public areas as well as bar, restaurant, conference and function spaces, while all guest rooms have undergone new detailing and finishing.

The property’s renovations draw on 1950s style cues to make the most of the unique atrium space, using interior design to celebrate the architecture of the building.

The newly refurbished hotel features terrazzo tiles, textured layering of natural materials with tan and deep blue colour tones.

At the heart of the design is the Rydges guest experience from the introduction of a signature scent – designed exclusively for the property — through to a modern pod-style reception and multiple immersive lounge and seating areas built around a pond and central fireplace, as well as luxe bar and dining areas.


 Crystal Serenity: New Zealand bound.

Free international business class flights and savings of more than $33,000 per couple are on offer for bookings made before October 30 next year on a new fly-cruise-and-stay package exploring New Zealand and southern Australia for February 2022.

The 19-night package has been released by Cruise Traveller, in conjunction with Crystal Cruises, and offers guests flexible booking terms with no deposit required for 30 days and relaxed cancellation terms.

Ports include Tauranga near the thermal centre of Rotorua, the fjords of Picton, Sydney, the scenic NSW port of Eden, Melbourne, Adelaide and Busselton in WA.

Including the flights, an onboard open bar, a specialty dining experience, wifi and gratuities, the 19-night luxury package from $12,995 per person twin-share.


 Japan: a country of flowers.

Spring is one of the most enchanting times to visit Japan.

From late March to early April, the whole country springs to life as the weather warms up and the country’s national flower comes into bloom.

The Tobu Railway operates in Tokyo and in neighbouring northern prefectures Saitama, Tochigi and Fukushima which boast some of the nation’s most spectacular cherry blossom destinations.

Kawagoe is a small town located just 30-minutes north of Tokyo which is overflowing with historic charm.

Kawagoe is known as ‘Ko-Edo’, meaning little Edo.

This is because time here seems to have stopped in the Edo Era (1603-1867) – a time of Samurai.

The town’s quaint streets are lined with heritage buildings, shops selling traditional souvenirs and Japanese food.


NOTE: Potential travellers should check the status of individual events and establishments with regard to the coronavirus outbreak.
