Celebrities reveal their favourite destinations to Gabrielle Fagan.

They’re what we all look forward to – and the stars are no different.

They’ve spoken about their top holiday choices and how a break helps them to wind down, relax and boost their wellbeing.

Lisa Snowdon, 41, co-presenter of Capital FM’s Breakfast show, says: “It has to be Kamalaya Koh Samui Wellness Sanctuary and Holistic Spa Resort in Thailand.

“You can go there just to chill and holiday, as I do, but there is also a wide selection of programmes to help people with a wide variety of specific problems such as burn-out, diet or stress.

“The spa’s amazing and the resort is set in the most beautiful grounds, with exotic sweet-smelling flowers everywhere.

“You can be comfortable going there alone or with a partner and I never fail to feel wonderful when I return.”

ITV weather presenter Sian Lloyd, 54, says: “Kangaroo Island, south-west of Adelaide, Australia, is the most amazing haven.

“It’s a pristine wilderness which offers protection to native Australian animals and so you can see sea lions basking on white beaches, koalas dozing in lofty eucalyptus, pelicans soaring over shimmering lagoons, and, of course, kangaroos bounding around.

“I fell in love with Australia when I appeared in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here in 2003 and I’ve been back to the country about seven times since.”

Sarah Beeny, 41, a TV property expert who’s backing a campaign by Keep Britain Tidy and cleaning equipment company Karcher, says: “France is definitely my favourite country for a holiday.

“My husband, Graham, and I are going this summer and will drive over in a car fully loaded with our four sons and too much luggage.

“We love the cities such as Paris as much as the countryside.”

Leeds-born actress Angela Griffin, 36, says: “Last summer for the first time in years I took two weeks off, because of work I never normally get more than a week. I went with the family to Valencia in Spain.

“I’m not a beach person so we had a villa with a pool and spent lazy days swimming and eating and others travelling by car to explore the area. It was a brilliant break and our two daughters, Tallulah, eight, and Melissa, five, had a ball. I’d like to go back this year.”

Kara Tointon, 29, who’s currently starring in West End play Relatively Speaking, says: “I’d always pick a ski holiday over a summer holiday.

“I enjoy being active and burning off lots of energy and I always feel brilliantly refreshed when I return from the mountains.

“Even when I go on a beach holiday, I hate lying around, so I’m in and out of the water and I’m always looking for activities to try such as jet skiing.”

Former JLS member Aston Merrygold, 25, who will appear at the new Leeds Arena later this year, says: “For a holiday with my mates, it’s got to be Ibiza; it’s such a fun island.

“But the holiday I’ll always remember and would love to repeat is going with my family to Florida and visiting the film studios there including Universal.

“It was fascinating and I’ve promised myself I’ll return to explore Miami as well.”
