Exotic destinations for luxury holidays

by Peter Smith

As with most things in life what constitutes luxury holidays is a matter of opinion, as they say “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. For some the incredibly chilled atmosphere of the Indian Ocean Islands is the perfect way to relax, where others may enjoy something a little more cosmopolitan.

The world is a very large place and there are luxury holidays for all tastes; whether you want the opulence of the newest 6 star hotels in the Middle East and Indian Ocean or something more relaxed, there is an island or hotel to suit every conceivable want and need.

Some of the newest destinations offering “luxury holidays” are to be found in the Middle East but these all tend to be large modern hotels and are not to everyone’s tastes. However, with year round blue skies, a comparatively short flight time of only 7 hours and arguably some of the world’s most “bling” hotels, this is shore to be a favourite for years to come.

Consistently in the world’s top ten long haul destinations, Mauritius has always been a mainstay for discerning travellers looking for the ultimate in luxury holidays. There are a number of new luxury hotels offering the “ultimate all inclusive packages” where daily spa treatments, golf green fees and fine dining are all included in your holiday cost, add to this beautiful beaches and great climate and it is understandable why Mauritius remains so popular.

The Caribbean has always been a very popular choice with the British public looking to escape on their luxury holidays. Arguably the Caribbean offers a more traditional luxury experience, coupled with some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and relaxed service. With so many islands to choose from, each with its own style and climate, there is certainly something to suit everyone.

That leaves the Far East with its incredibly diverse cultures and luxury spa hotels. For those prepared to fly that little bit further you are rewarded with exceptional value for money luxury holidays, with breathtaking rainforests, cosmopolitan cities and some of the most beautiful beaches on earth. With so much to see and do it is understandable why so many people choose twin or multi centre luxury holidays when travelling to this part of the world.
