Royal NewsK2 at Borgo Di Colleoli

Holiday options for Royal Points members just got even better with the addition of apartments at K2 at Park View in Bansko, Bulgaria. K2 at Park View is a stunning new development of well appointed apartments, all with spectacular views, situated in the central part of Bansko ski resort. It holds a prime position, just 300 metres from well known 5 star Kempinski Hotel, and the Gondola ski lift for those of you that love skiing, or would like to learn!


Great ExperiencesThere can be nothing nicer than planning a holiday. Possibilities abound. Thoughts of relaxation, great food and good times very often lead to images of azure waters and swaying palms trees. There's something about a beach destination that is simply irresistible!

We are therefore delighted to be able to announce that The Royal Kovalam Beach Club has been added as another Royal Points destination.

Royal RewardsIn this day and age of intense media bombardment and hectic lifestyles, it is hardly surprising that the average person receives thousands of messages in a week. It is therefore no wonder that we filter out what doesn't seem important or interesting to us, yet we always seem to have a ready ear to those closest to us


When you ask the inhabitants of the many islands in the eastern Indonesian archipelago for the name of a sailing ship that regularly comes calling at their shores, the first name they invariably remember is Ombak Putih.

In the Indonesian language 'Ombak Putih' means 'White Wave' and her gracious beauty makes her instantly recognisable. More than any other traditional 'Bugi Schooner', she is a familiar sight from Bali to Papua and from Sulawesi to Savu. Having logged close to a hundred thousand miles over the past ten years, her captain and crew know more about the remote islands of Indonesia than any other people alive and there are very few bays in this part of the world where she has not anchored yet...

John Spence (Chairman)

We all need time to enjoy the finer aspects of life and there is no better time to do that, than when taking holidays.

As a family man myself, living in a world where these days we all seem to have to work extra hard, I believe that we therefore cherish, all the more, the simple pleasures in life as well as any quality time we manage to spend with the family...
