Enter this month’s competition and you could well be jetting off for seven days in private-villa luxury at shore-side Phuket hideaway Sri Panwa, with flights from Etihad and, for Mr Smith, £3,000 to spend on swim shorts and beachwear at Orlebar Brown. To win, all you have to do is send us a snap that you think captures 'the Orlebar Brown way of life'…
Thailand island hideaway
Win, and you and a companion will be whisked away to Phuket aboard one of Etihad’s notoriously luxurious aircraft. Once there, you’ll be checking into Sri Panwa, a teak-chic cluster of villas nestled in the coastal forests of the island’s southern peninsula. Your glass-walled pavilion opens onto a private infinity pool, with panoramic views of the Andaman Sea. As well as seven night’s pampering, thanks to the ever-obliging staff, you’ll get two 90-minute spa treatments, breakfast each morning, one three-course dinner at Baba, the hotel’s Thai and international restaurant where delicacies such as freshly caught Andaman Snapper are followed by cocktails on the rooftop bar.
We like short shorts
Our friends at designer swim and beachwear brand Orlebar Brown are celebrating their fifth birthday. They’ve just released a series of 12 limited-edition swim shorts featuring prints that they reckon represent ‘the Orlebar Brown way of life’ (10 per cent of proceeds from the collection go to ocean-conservation charity the Blue Marine Foundation). Their celebratory mood has clearly gone to their heads, as they’re offering our winner £3,000 to spend on tailored beach and holiday wear from the Orlebar Brown collection. There are runners-up prizes too: two £1,000 vouchers and four £500 vouchers.
For your chance to win this rather spectacular prize package, all you have to do is send us a picture you've taken that you think best captures ‘the Orlebar Brown Way of Life’ – maybe a retro poolside, a chilled-out surf shot, an alfresco backgammon session or just a sunny sandcastle. Email the shot, along with your contact details, to [email protected]. Good luck!
