Sometimes, getting close to nature and having a unique experience is the most important thing about travel. But other times, what you want is a unique experience AND to be treated like royalty.
Luxury travel is about having access to something exclusive, but it’s also about being taken care of to an exceptional degree during that experience. Today, we’re sharing 10 luxury travel journeys from Trips100 bloggers that we are definitely adding to our Travel Bucket List.
Long Beach Hotel, Mauritius
This 5* resort hotel on the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius is picture perfect. Suze from HIBS100 blog Luxury Columnist describes it as a “five star spa hotel with an urban beach chic vibe”. With loads of sporting and sailing activities on offer, plus half a dozen decent restaurants, we want to exhaust ourselves, then enjoy this view…
Hannah’s Winchester Boutique B&B
Sometimes, nothing is better than close-to-home luxury and we absolutely fell in love with hannah’s, boutique B&B in Winchester after reading this review over on Feet on the Ground. With awesome interior design and loads of amazing close-by entertainment, it’s the perfect place to spoil yourself. Personally, I’d opt for an evening at the Everyman Cinema (complete with in-seat service and velvet sofas) followed by a night-cap on THIS sofa, armed with a good bedtime book. Sorted.
Another bucket list destination for many of us, we are feeling thoroughly inspired by this review of Kurumba in the Maldives over on Hey, Dip Your Toes In. Along with spectacular beaches and mind-boggling views, you can be indulged in every way here. We especially loved the idea of a wine-tasting in the sea.
HDYTI describes it thus: “The bar was the lagoon itself, arranged in such a way that guests could stand waist deep in the water surrounded by elevated tables laden with wine. A chatty waiter waded from one group to another, topping up empty glasses. Soon, we were chatting away with other guests while watching the changing reflections of the sun on the turquoise blue waters.” Sounds magical, doesn’t it?
The Beverley Wilshire Hotel, LA
As Mrs O puts it, “Every woman should have a Pretty Woman moment in their lives.” Quite so. This review inspired us to save our pennies for a break at one of the world’s most iconic hotels, and who wouldn’t want a “diamond facial” at one of the world’s most luxurious spas?
The Pavilions Himalayas, Nepal
Sometimes luxury is as much about the experience as the thread count of the bedding. We are utterly enchanted by this post by Paper Planes and Caramel Waffles about her stay at Nepal’s newest luxury resort. Stay in your own peaceful villa in this eco resort, looking out onto some of the world’s most beautiful countryside. We especially love the sound of fresh flowers being left around your bath… it’s a bit special isn’t it? This resort is also committed to helping and benefiting the surrounding community, so you can support locals, while enjoying a bit of luxury. Perfect!
