Adding lashings of luxury to your next holiday is an absolute must – you've worked hard, you deserve it! After all, holidays are the time to indulge yourself, whether it be with fine-dining, all-day champagne or simply taking that much needed ‘me’ time. Which is why we've found the best – and easiest – ways to add a little to a lot of luxury to your holiday, from start to finish.

Arrive in style

Schlepping from the airport to your resort should be done in serious style – after all, it sets the benchmark for the rest of your holiday. One resort that offers this premium service is Maxx Royal Resorts in Turkey, who provide a VIP transfer in one of their exclusive cars, which are stocked with all the things you'll need to freshen up after your flight.

Be welcomed with champagne

You arrive at your hotel and should be greeted in style. The best way to do it? Champagne of course! Nothing starts a holiday like a glass of fizz, and a warm welcome to follow.

Stay in a swish suite

Your accommodation needs to be full of splendour. A jacuzzi bath is a must – along with your own steam room, laundry services and a turndown service. But when it comes to taking luxury to the next level, Turkey's Maxx Royal Resorts offer some of the most amazing in-room facilities you could imagine; think being able to choose a fragrance for your room, a pillow menu, your own private butler and even private terrace pool. Plus, all Belek villas are undergoing a full, amazing renovation so will be even more luxe than before.

Make a date at the spa

You need some ‘you’ time, and the spa is the most perfect place to enjoy that – especially when it looks like the Maxx Royal Kemer Aven Royal Spa. A contemporary mix of classic treatments and bold architecture, you can enjoy a luxurious Turkish bath here or try out some of the latest treatments in cosmetology. Or, simply relax with a soul-soothing massage. And if you're not in the mood to make the journey to the spa, don't worry – therapists can come to you, be it in your room or on the beach. Talk about bliss…

Book in a babysitter

Travelling with children? When you need some alone time (with or without your partner), book in with a babysitter – many hotels and resorts offer an on-site kids club or even babysitting services with professional childcare specialists. So take the day off to relax, get in a round of golf or enjoy a sumptuous meal with your loved one, uninterrupted. A holiday needs to be a holiday for everyone.

Tour the area in a helicopter

The only way to explore the area you're holidaying in? A helicopter is the finest way to travel. Guests to Maxx Royal Resorts can explore the historical and natural beauty of Antalya by chopper, for the most breath-taking aerial tours of Turkey’s exclusive addresses, including Aspendos, Bodrum, Oludeniz and many more.

Enjoy multiple resorts

Why stick to just one holiday resort when you can enjoy two? Many hotels and resorts allow you to visit their sister hotels too, so you can reap the benefits of more than one resort. Maxx Royal resorts allow their guests to flit between both the Belek Golf Resort – the hotspot for golfers in Turkey - and Kemer Resort, a stunning location where nature meets luxury; that means new pools to swim in (heated, indoor, outdoor, saltwater – they've got you covered), private beaches to sunbathe on, restaurants to dine in, cabanas to lounge in and beach clubs to be seen in.
