When it comes to luxury travel, do you imagine yourself soaking at a marble bath with golden light fixtures in a 5-star hotel? Or perhaps, enjoying a fancy dinner at some Michelin starred restaurants? According to a recent survey, the concept of luxury travel is dramatically changing. However, one thing remains the same – we want to enjoy the moment and treat ourselves to an unforgettable travel experience. Here’s our luxury travelers’ guide to world travel.
From posh to scandalously expensive, London has it all. Splurge on your accommodation at the Rosewood London, a blending of English heritage and modern sophistication or indulge at the Bulgari Hotel London, a haven of quiet in the middle of the city. You can also check out the exquisite collection of apartments at the wealthiest neighborhoods of London, such as the Sloane Club Apartments in Chelsea and the Prince of Wales Apartments in Kensington.
While in London, make sure you stop in the luxurious Radio Rooftop Bar, the iconic department store Harrods, and the famous Somerset House, home to some of the city’s Fashion Week exhibitions. To get around London in comfort and ease, consider renting a chauffer-driven luxury car.
Modern yet ancient at the same time, Bhutan is a feast of fascinating and enriching contrasts. If you’re looking for tranquility while on a luxury business holiday, Bhutan is the perfect place for you.
For ultimate relaxation during your holiday in Bhutan, stay at the Gangtey Lodge, a serene hotel overlooking the stunning and remote Gangtey Valley. You can also check out the Le Meridien Paro Riverfront, the Dhensa Boutique Resort, and the Aman Kora. Treat yourself to a memorable dining experience at the Bukhari Restaurant, Cloud 9, and Babesa Village Restaurant.
The most comfortable way to travel around Bhutan is with a private car. You can also travel with other tourists in a comfortable minibus with a driver and an English-speaking guide.
From luxurious accommodations, incredible cuisines to abundant wildlife and magnificent coastline, Tanzania never fails to impress luxury travelers out there. If you’re looking for a romantic and secluded hideaway, stay at the &Beyond Mnemba Island. Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature by staying at the Singita Faru Faru Lodge or the Four Seasons Safari Lodge.
For a pleasurable holiday in Tanzania, head to the Serengeti National Park, Tarangire National Park, and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. You can enjoy the most elegant dining experience at the Mediterraneo Restaurant, 305 Karafuu, or the Two O’ Six. The best way to travel around Tanzania is to rent a car with a driver. Self-driving is not recommended due to inadequate road conditions.
With its intriguing culture, sumptuous cuisine, and historical landmarks, Italy continuously tops the world’s list as one of the best tourist destinations. It offers luxurious accommodations at its finest, from Belmond Hotel Caruso in the Mediterranean to Aman in Venice to Il Sereno in Lake Como to Gran Melia in Rome.
When visiting Italy, taking a luxurious Sicilian villa break, from any business travel, for an exceptional and lavish experience, is one hundred percent recommended. Check out the Castello di Falconara, Villa Tenuto Nemo, Villa Pyro Pyro, Villa Valguarnera Villafranca, and Villa Don Mimi Guarnaschelli. Some of the best restaurants to visit in Italy are Club del Doge Restaurant in Venice, Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence, and La Pergola in Rome. For a luxurious, convenient, and unique way of touring Italy, get on board a first-class train that travels across quaint towns, villages, and grand cities.
- The Maldives
Few countries have successfully blended urban charm and tropical allure as the Maldives. Considered as one of the most expensive places to stay in the Maldives, Soneva Jani is the perfect place to relax and recharge. You can also enjoy an idyllic vacation at the Soneva Fushi, or the Velaa Private Island, both set on privately owned tropical islands isolated from the clamoring crowds of other resorts.
Other impressive places to check out in the Maldives are the Cheval Blanc Randheli Resort, St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, and the Six Senses Laamu. Getting around by car may not be the most suitable option to see places in the Maldives due to the country’s topography. However, the island offers comfortable and luxurious transport alternatives, from yachts to ferries to speedboats and seaplanes.
