Why choose a villa?

The world is waiting to be explored and you deserve to recharge your batteries away from everyday stress. However, there are times when you long for the comfort and freedom of your own home, even when you are in your perfect holiday destination around the world. You can achieve this by opting for a holiday in a villa - your home away from home. In recent years, the word 'villa' has crept into every travel conversation, largely due to unrivalled perks.

Villas maintain your comfort and the leisurely pace of waking up and having breakfast in your own space. You will also enjoy isolation away from the crowds so you and your loved ones can truly relax in the privacy of your own space. The seclusion of a villa allows Muslim travellers modesty on holiday and families can enjoy themselves undisturbed under the blazing sun and stars in a villa with a private pool, a garden and even jacuzzi facilities. The view from the windows of a country villa lets you become one with the peaceful nature, perfect for families, honeymooners, groups and solo travellers!

With so many beautiful countries around the world to choose from, it can make it quite difficult to choose your ideal halal holiday destination. That is why we have selected our favourite countries for Muslim-friendly getaways.
