Be Manos, Brussels: hotel of the week

There’s more to Europe's capital than MEPs and triple-cooked chips – set foot inside Be Manos hotel in Brussels and you could be forgiven for thinking you’d arrived in Carnaby Street’s hippest hangout during peak Sixties swing…

Yoga, chocolate and Caribbean bliss

Mmm, a yoga holiday in Grenada. And loads of chocolate. No, I’ve not eaten one too many liqueur chocolates, I’m at Laluna.

It’s all very well treating ourselves to a few days in a stylish boutique hotel in the Caribbean that’ll have us looking and feeling our best. But how many holidays also do good for the local community? The ‘Eco Chic Yoga Retreats’ taking place at Grenada’s most special boutique hotel Laluna not only promise a stylish escape but give guests the chance to help a local charity that works to improve the lives of local children – all while you lie back and say ‘Om’. I’ve been lucky enough to spend a few days here as the guest of the very delightful Wendy and Bernardo Bertucci and meet the founders of these extra-special charity trips, yoga guru, Neo Moreton and Dr Karen Lawson.
