It is the season for festivals, getting away for weekends of fun and probably time at the beach. But if you would like that festival feel without the sand between your toes then the alternative lies in Platres.
More to the point, the place is the Forest Park Hotel where the organisers of the Nostalgia events will put on a massive party next weekend.
Get booking now for a weekend away at this historical four-star hotel where you can bond with nature and also your feel for music when you dance the night away in the ballroom on Saturday. The theme for the evening – there is always a theme, Nostalgia parties have taught us that – is 1930s to the 1970s, which just happen to be the golden years of the hotel. DJs Claudio and Mr Fox will be there to spin 50 years of songs in just two days.
After a night of non-stop music comes your lazy Sunday, complete with an outdoor pool party to add a bit of that typical summer feel to your getaway.
If you find yourself wanting a break from the party, the hotel also caters for that need with a tennis court, table tennis, a games room a sauna, jacuzzies, a library and gardens.
For those interested in taking advantage of a full-package party weekend, you can book the night at the hotel and enjoy an all-inclusive deal which will include tickets to the night party with an open bar, buffet dinner and breakfast on the terrace. The party by the pool is a free event. To book your room, call the hotel directly on 25-421751 or send an email to [email protected]
