5 luxury holidays you have to try at least once

Luxury holidays aren’t just about staying in an excellent hotel or visiting a beautiful destination; the real luxury comes from the whole experience and the sense of fulfilment you get to take home with you when your holiday comes to an end. Here are five types of luxury holiday you have to try at least once…

Sail into the sunset

Imagine having the whole ocean to yourself, on board a luxury sail boat. Relaxing on secluded beaches, sipping Champagne as you soak up stunning sunsets or enjoying water sports as your captain prepares delicious feasts. A yacht charter enables you to experience multiple destinations as well as the delightful serenity of the ocean. Fill your days with as much or as little as you please with plenty of choice at your fingertips; from snorkelling amongst ruins to overnight stops so you can dance the night away. Discover different towns, each with their unique sights and activities, swim out at sea or enjoy exploring caves by kayak. Perfect for a thoroughly revitalising break, your captain can take you on a trip perfectly catered to your tastes; whether you prefer to experience the vibrance of Europe, uncover Asian delights or cruise the coast of Australia, the world is your oyster.


Have an animal encounter

Get up close and personal to nature on a luxury safari and experience a holiday like no other. Reawaken your soul as you watch majestic lions, elegant giraffes and lazing hippos in their natural environment and feel inspired by the enchanting planet that we live on. With plenty of luxury accommodation to choose from, you can relish spectacular views as you swim in your private infinity pool then sleep out under the stars on your private deck. You can choose to stay in one place or experience several locations; either way, a luxury safari will leave you invigorated.


Get the party started

Oozing with glitz and packed with fun; a Las Vegas penthouse break certainly has the wow factor. This action packed destination is much more than luxurious casinos and grandeur… from desert sunsets and the mighty Grand Canyon to the hottest clubs and delicious cuisine. Relax and be pampered at a luxury spa, tee off with a game of golf or get a thrill at a theme park – there really are no limits. With entertainment galore you can take your pick of shows from illusions to comedy, shop till you drop or relax in Las Vegas’s own Venice.

Laze in luxury

With some of the best beaches in the world, the Seychelles is the ultimate in relaxation. Spend your day soaking up the sun on pristine white powder beaches and snorkel in tropical turquoise waters. With 16 islands offering accommodation there is no shortage of options for sea views from the comfort of your own private hot tub. Ideal for a romantic holiday, couples can enjoy secluded dinners on the beach as well as on board a sunset cruise. Island hopping, diving or horse riding can be added to your itinerary if you can manage to drag yourself away from your luxurious bliss.


Take it to the excess

Known for its utter extravagance and lavish encounters, Dubai is like nowhere else. With endless designer shopping, a 7 star hotel and plenty of activities – you certainly won’t be bored. Adventure lovers will be in their element with a choice of sand boarding, camel riding, skiing and hot air ballooning. White sand beaches await those who prefer to relax. By night you can dine in the desert complete with belly dancing and cultural entertainment or walk along the beautiful marina.

    It has always been a dream of ours to go on Safari. Hopefully we want to plan a trip to Africa for next year. I didn’t know about Hot Air Ballooning in Dubai, its one of my new favorite activities as I did it in Luxor 2 years ago and we’re going next week to Cappadocia for hot air ballooning! Should be fabulous. Unfortunately I am limited on the sailing trips as I get rather seasick, but since we’re going to Greece in a month, perhaps a small sailing trip is in order! Nice list.

    The Seychelles is my kind of luxury holiday.

    Snorkelling with the brightly coloured fish, laying on the pristine white sand next to the cool clear water.. Sounds like absolute heaven to me. Even better, you’re waited on hand and foot and can lay there sipping cocktails until the sun goes down… ahhh bliss!
