Luxury Vacations: Where to Go for Extravagant and Unique Experiences

We all look forward to a vacation away, but sometimes we crave an escape that is out of the ordinary. Luxury vacations look different for each traveler. For some, it’s lounging on the deck of a superyacht, while others prefer to get lost in wildlife safaris or immerse themselves in unforgettable cultural experiences.

Whatever it looks like for you, you won’t regret embarking on the extravagant journey of a lifetime. The luxury travel industry has rebounded back to pre-pandemic levels with a global market value of $1.2 trillion and is offering itineraries that are sure to leave you breathless.

For travellers seeking a bespoke getaway that offers a unique blend of opulence, adventure, and culture, look no further than these four extraordinary destinations.

Luxury Vacations South Africa Kruger national park

Spend time in the wilderness of South Africa national parks

South Africa

Luxury vacations in South Africa are more than just opulent accommodations and lodges on game reserves. They’re about the unparalleled animal encounters that are waiting around every corner!

Climb into a private Jeep guided by a seasoned ranger to unlock the secrets of the African bush. Afterward, you can unwind and relax in the comfort of a secluded lodge.

Thrilling safari destinations include the vast Kruger National Park that is renowned for its big cat scenes, Addo Elephant National Park for sightings of three out of the big five, and Hluhluwe-iMfolozi National Park, a spot revered for its encounters with white rhinos.

Luxury Vacations Mexico


Beyond the pristine beaches and lush tropical forests, Mexico offers visitors a world of Mayan mystery and extravagance. Let the rich history of the Riviera Maya wash over you when you explore the ancient ruins of Tulum, the beautifully preserved wonder of Chichen Itza, and Cobá, the tallest pyramid in Quintana Roo.

Unplug and recharge in 5-star resorts overlooking the Caribbean Sea, where you can receive personalized spa treatments and sample the vibrant culinary scene. You can bask in the sun, take a swim, or enjoy water sports on the crystal-clear waters.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka offers a tropical climate all year round and is made up of a captivating blend of ancient cities, hill stations, and stunning beaches. Climb aboard a lavish train that takes you around the verdant tea plantations and colonial towns before reaching the majestic fortress-palace of Sigiriya.

For a more cultural experience, take a trip to the cultural hub of Kandy or consider a private yoga retreat nestled in the serene Knuckles Mountains. You can take some time to reconnect with yourself while taking in the breathtaking scenery. There are few places in the world as lush and vibrant as the Resplendent Isle.

Luxury Vacations Morocco

Find luxury in Marrakech


Morocco is a country of unique and contrasting landscapes. You can wander through the bustling alleyways of Marrakech’s medina or relax under a canopy of silent stars in a desert camp within the Sahara Desert.

For a vacation of unlimited indulgence, why not stay in a restored riad? These are historic Moroccan mansions featuring intricate mosaics and handcrafted furniture that have been transformed into a luxurious haven that has to be experienced to be believed.

If you want to get away from the busy city, explore the sand dunes of the desert in a traditional camel caravan. Upon arriving at your camp, you can enjoy traditional Berber music and the awe-inspiring emptiness of the Erg Chebbi.
