From beautiful beach escapes to iconic urban hideaways, there are so many destinations to choose from. Here are our top picks for the best luxury travel spots for your next vacation:
If you’re looking to indulge in world-class amenities and luxury resorts, then Lanai in Hawaii is for you. You can be as lazy or active as you like, with opportunities like snorkelling, horseback riding, and champion-level golf at your fingertips.
Equally, you can kick back on 18 miles of secluded beaches or pamper yourself at one of the many spa resorts on the island. If immersing yourself in the local culture is more up your street, you can try local delicacies and cuisine and explore prehistoric Hawaiian village ruins or the Keahiakawelo, the Garden of the Gods.
St. Barts, Caribbean
When you think of this tropical West Indies Island, you can already see the sun, sand, and glistening blue of the Caribbean Sea. Known as one of the hottest celebrity destinations in the world, St Barts spans just eight square miles but is plenty of ways to spend your time.
Sip a cocktail on one of the many sandy beaches, take advantage of the high-end shopping opportunities or rent a yacht for some relaxation on the water. For that extra touch of luxury, fly to and from St Barts on a private jet and enjoy the convenience and comfort that comes with private travel.
Tiwi Islands, Australia
Known as the ‘Island of Smiles’, this hidden gem on the Arafura Sea is located just 80km north of Darwin and is made up of two main islands, Bathurst and Melville. This is the perfect vacation spot if you’re looking to enjoy a unique blend of Aboriginal culture and coastal landscapes.
The Tiwi people are renowned for their distinctive art pieces, and you can purchase artwork directly from local artists. Then you can explore the diverse landscape, from vibrant rainforests, dense jungles, and picturesque beaches.
St. Moritz, Switzerland
Sand and sea aren’t everyone’s idea of the perfect luxury vacation spot. Snowy mountain getaways, like St. Moritz, are a perfect alternative, especially if you love to ski. St. Moritz is one of the most top-rated ski resorts in Switzerland and has hosted the Winter Olympics twice.
Known for its glorious terrain, you can enjoy the slopes, try your hand at bobsledding and tobogganing, or take a load off one of the many opulent spas.
