Escape the Brexit news with Mrs O’s top 5 luxury picks for March

Pre-Brexit Holidays in March 2019

In the lead up to Brexit, I thought I would share my top 5 picks for a March Brexit escape – and a local one, in case borders literally close.

EDIT: Brexit did not happen in March 2019 as planned. But you can still go to all these places.


Surfside, Florida

Escape the UK for some guaranteed sunshine and a super luxury hotel. I recommend The Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club in Surfside, Florida, approximately 15 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Miami Beach.

Get there with British Airways in business class by flying to Miami from Heathrow from £1676 or Fort Lauderdale from Gatwick from £1508.


North Lake Tahoe, California

For skiers, I recommend a trip to North Lake Tahoe, ideal as a base to receive the news and then take to a different mountain everyday. I recently stayed at Squaw Valley and the Plumpjack Squaw Valley Inn. Incredible views when you ski Homewood Mountain and enjoy Lake Tahoe.

Get there with British Airways in business class by flying from Heathrow to San Francisco or San Jose from £1582.


Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi

One of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the UAE, Saadiyat is not as well known as Dubai, and that is absolutely fine by those who choose to return year after year like yours truly. Low construction, truly fabulous hotels – we always stay at the St. Regis Resort at Saadiyat and the food is a surprising treat. Alternatively, get on a little boat and go to Zaya Nurai private island for the day.

Get there with British Airways in business class by flying from Heathrow to Abu Dhabi from £2170 or Dubai, which is only 90 minutes drive away from £1886.


Igls, Austria

With all the uncertainty caused by Brexit, de-stress at Park Igls – in the world renowned Mayr spa, who offer a 7-night or multiple-week detox and de-stress programme. As well as shedding some pounds, enjoy medical-class treatments including daily massages.

Get there with British Airways in business class by flying to Innsbruck from Heathrow from £243 or from Gatwick from £279.


Great Milton, Oxfordshire

For those who would rather play it safe and stay local, Mrs. O suggests checking into a suite and dining with Raymond Blanc’s team at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons just outside Oxford.

Where would you like to escape before Brexit?
