Don't get us wrong, we love to travel the world—but the long journeys can't half be a lot of hassle. Instead of wasting time with mini shampoos, ever-shrinking carry-ons, and suspicious airport security, discover exotic lands within driving distance courtesy of this week's Escape to the divine Zanzibar International Hotel in historic, coastal Hastings.

What exchange rate? We'll swap you an overnight stay in an eye-popping garden-view room at the supremely elegant hotel for £179 of your British pounds (up to a £408 value), or a sea view room for £249 (up to a £505 value). This is where the far-flung destination comes in: you'll lay your bags in accommodation that's decadently styled after South America—with a sea view bath; India—with spa bathroom, Jacuzzi, and monsoon shower; Japan—with deep-soak Japanese bath and floor-to-ceiling windows, or Morocco—a split-level room featuring its very own lounge, and a storm shower that's big enough for two.

If you're foodie types, this place will really speak your language: a bottle of prosecco and homemade truffles will greet you on arrival—a mere appetiser for your decadent, inclusive three-course meal at the award-winning Pier Nine Restaurant. Forget your global aspirations as you tuck into local fare including Sussex 36-day aged fillet steak; Rye Bay scallops and pomegranate panna cotta; and a cheese board with chutney and crackers—and that's all before the champagne breakfast arrives at your room the next morning.

Follow the dotted lines on your map and touch down at the epic Hastings Country Park—all rugged cliffs and raw nature—or the shabby-chic cobbled Old Town, where the one-time fishermen's houses are now home to boutiques, bars, and restaurants. Elsewhere, the market town of Battle takes its name from that fateful day in 1066—come in to land here for historic sights such as the abbey, unusual architecture, and the Battle Museum of Local History, complete with intriguing engravings of the Bayeux tapestry.

This Escape is for two people. Got a question? Contact our Travel Concierge at Guests can upgrade to the exceptional Manhattan Penthouse apartment for an additional charge. There is seven-day availability on this property, however, a £30 supplement is applicable for Friday stays, and a £60 supplement is applicable for Saturday stays.

  • "Max O'Rourke has turned this five-storey Victorian town house into a 'boutique B&B with an exceptionally good restaurant'."
