dealchecker Picks: TUI’s Top Five Activity-Packed Hotels

Post Thumbnail

While holidays are a great time for relaxation, we have to admit that after a few hours of lying on a sun lounger, we’re ready to get up and do something. That’s why hotels brimming with activities are such a win: you can try a whole handful of new things but in a way that couldn’t be easier! We’ve rounded up our five favourite TUI hotels that offer just that.

TUI MAGIC LIFE Kalawy, Hurghada

Great for: families and groups of friends

This five-star hotel has a prime location on its own stretch of golden sands. It’s the location of the hotel, right beside a lagoon that makes it such a great spot for watersports (many of which come included in the price of staying at this hotel). There are stand-up paddle boards to hire, canoes to take out and windsurfing to try (for those with an existing accreditation—courses to learn are available at a supplement). One of the most unusual activities available here is the aqua cycling, where you’ll be testing those legs out in the pool. It’s not all about being in the water either—back on dry land, there are tennis courts and beach volleyball to be played.


TUI BLUE Madeira Gardens, Funchal

Great for: couples

Not every holidaymaker wants activities where they have to break a sweat, and we totally get that too. That’s why this four-star, adults-only number is Funchal is so great. Yes, there are two pools to dive into and a fitness programme that you could take part in, but there is a whole host of more grown-up activities on hand too. You can learn new skills here thanks to the wine tastings, cooking classes and cocktail-making opportunities.


TUI MAGIC LIFE Calabria, Italy

Great for: families and tennis fans

This sprawling resort in the Italian countryside is set up to make family holidays as fun and relaxed as possible. There are four different children’s clubs so your children are all set to make friends their own age, then when they’re with you, you’ll be able to take them to the dedicated children’s splash park.

It’s not all about the kids either—there are a whopping 11 tennis courts here and there are free lessons available for players of all abilities, while the cycling programme will see you get out into the local area with guided mountain bike tours.


TUI BLUE Sensatori Atlantica Dreams, Rhodes

Great for: those looking for a little luxury

This five-star hotel on the Greek island of Rhodes is incredibly chic with muted natural tones and interesting textures throughout. However, it’s not all about sitting pretty here—there’s an impressive exercise programme on hand too. You’ll be able to book in for yoga classes, meditation sessions and HIIT workouts using the TUI BLUE App®. There’s also an archery range onsite if you’re looking to try a new activity!


TUI MAGIC LIFE Bodrum, Turkey

Great for: dance lovers and active holidaymakers

This five-star hotel, perched on Turkey’s picturesque turquoise coast, is brimming with onsite activities. There are guided mountain bike rides for those who want to get out and explore the beauty of the local area, while the canoe hire will let you get out onto those crystalline waters.

However, what sets this hotel apart from its counterparts is all the dancing opportunities here. Not only are there your usual Zumba® classes, but salsa courses are on hand to ensure that you leave looking all the fancier when you hit the dancefloor.
