Whether you dream of a romantic hideaway, an unforgettable ski experience, an African safari, an escape to your own tropical paradise or a scuba diving adventure, there are plenty of fantastic destinations that can make that dream a reality. Here are some of the best the world has to offer.
Nestled in the coral-rich turquoise waters of the South Pacific, Fiji’s Turtle Island is a romantic couples-only hideaway. This secluded, intimate resort and its welcoming staff cater to your every whim. You will stay in a beautiful, traditional thatched cottage, steps away from the island’s pristine white sand beach. One of the original ecotourism destinations, this Garden of Eden is committed to environmentally sound, sustainable practices. Guests are treated to fresh fruit and vegetables from one of the South Pacific’s most amazing organic gardens, picked only minutes before it arrives at the table. A private, romantic candlelit dinner for two on the resort’s floating dock is the stuff dreams are made of.
If you prefer to frolic on snow covered mountains, you’ll find that the Whistler Resort Village on Canada’s beautiful west coast is a dream come true for skiers and snowboarders. Nestled between two mountains, the village of Whistler offers something for everyone; from world-class skiing on some of the steepest and longest vertical runs in North America, to snowboarding on its renowned terrain parks, not to mention the après ski nightlife, exceptional dining opportunities and superb spa facilities. The village offers accommodations to suit every taste, many of which are ski-in, ski-out, from the five-star luxury of hotels like The Fairmont Chateau Whistler to private chalets and condos.
If you dream of getting up-close to nature on an African safari, then the Governors Camp in Kenya is the place for you. This is where Prince William proposed to Kate. The Camp is located on the banks of the Mara River in the Masai Mara National Wildlife Preserve. You’ll stay in a luxury tent complete with an en-suite bathroom. In fact, the entire camp is under canvas. You can view a stunning array of wildlife from the camp’s fleet of four wheel drive vehicles or from a hot air balloon high above the sweeping plains.
For those who have dreamed of having a tropical paradise for your exclusive use alone, The Rania Experience provides the ultimate fantasy island vacation. On this tiny private atoll, hidden away in the Indian Ocean’s Maldives chain of islands, you will stay in a luxurious villa, with an eighty-six foot yacht at your disposal. A discreet butler will be your contact to the island’s staff of twenty-five, including chefs, spa therapists, scuba instructors and a yacht crew, whose only purpose is to see that your every wish is met.
Located on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, Heron Island is a paradise for scuba divers, with over twenty different diving sites and family holiday parks. The island is surrounded by stunning coral gardens and a kaleidoscope of remarkable sea-life. Its pristine beaches offer exceptional swimming and snorkeling and are home to green turtles and a huge variety of birds. At the Heron Island Resort you have the unique opportunity to stay and play in one of The Seven Wonders of the World.
