Here are LUYA’s favourite travel hotspots of 2019 – whether it be a staycation in the historic city of Chester or an idyllic overseas holiday to the clear blue waters of the Caribbean, we have a list that is going to make you want to book your next trip right away…


Who doesn’t like clear blue waters, white sandy beaches and rum punches galore?! We most certainly do! Yes, you do have to sit on a plane for over 8-hours to get there, but it is well worth it. If you’re not one for lying on the beach with a book in one hand and cocktail in the other then don’t panic, there are lots of fun-filled activities for you to get stuck into. From snorkelling with the turtles to visiting the islands enchanting gardens, there is something for everyone. The choice and quality of place to eat out in Barbados is second to none, from Barbados’ most famous restaurant The Cliff to The Tides in Holetown.

Why not try The Lawns at Thornton Hall for a luxurious fine dining experience or Australasia for a modern dining experience.

Where to begin… only a 2-hour train journey from Chester, so many restaurants we don’t even know where to start, bustling bars and the most iconic tourist spots – count us in any day! Top of LUYA’s agenda would of course be food, which means us heading straight from Euston Station to Soho. With is extensive range of restaurants and bars to satisfy any craving from Yauatcha, an all-day dim sum teahouse to Barrafina, a cosy tapas bar – Soho is definitely top of our London checklist.

Want to get that London atmosphere a little closer to home? Why not visit Sunset by Australasia or Red Door’s rooftop bar, Eden, for that buzzy, London bar feeling.
