The Ultimate Guide to Ultra-Lux Getaways

  1. Stay on a private Island such as Thanda Island 

Spoil yourself, whether alone, a partner, family or friends, at the gorgeous Thanda Island, a luxury private island retreat. This is one of the most beautiful Islands where you can just relax,  soak up the sun, enjoy the beauty around you and take sunrise or sunset walks along the gorgeous sandy beach. This is a holiday where you are king of your castle, or should we say island. It’s equipped with all the luxuries imaginable from five star dining experiences, to top class activities, and what makes it that much more special, is that you can do as you please without the prying eyes of others, or the crowds that beautiful islands attract. This is your private island for as long as you are there! If you decide that you want a little time out in nature, sleep almost under the stars, you have the thatched bandas on the beach that is yours to use as you please. There is much to keep you busy with water activities such as jet skiing, snorkeling, paddle boarding, diving or yachting.

  1. Book out a chalet on the Ski slopes of Switzerland

Switzerland is almost always on those must-visit lists written by formidable luxury travel sites such as Conde Nast. One reason, is because it’s beautiful of course, and ideal for travellers interested in nature, adventure, culture and beauty – and who wouldn’t be keen on that? Whether you choose to go in winter or summer, Switzerland will never disappoint. Switzerland transforms into a winter wonderland during the winter season with its snow capped peaks and christmas-tress. It certainly looks like something out of a fairytale which is why we recommend you book yourself a chalet on the slopes of Switzerland, where you can enjoy the winter and learn to ski while you’re at it. Switzerland is the ‘birth-place’ of skiing, starting in the nineteenth century and burst forth during the twentieth century. Still today, people from all over the world choose Switzerland over every other ‘ski-country’ because it’s just got that edge that cannot be found anywhere else.

  1. Stay in a luxury villa in Lake Como

Lake Como, also known as Lario, is situated north of Italy and just an hour drive from Milan. Lake Como with a depth of about 410 meters is not only the third largest lake but also one of the deepest in Europe. Lake Como is one place in Europe that encapsulates beauty, charm, romance and tranquility. Driving along the lakeside with its stunning views, gorgeous landscapes, villages edging the way, will make you want to stop and take out a sketch pad and start drawing or painting the exquisite views. This is one of those destinations that draws the rich and famous but has now become popular amongst all tourists as there is so much to offer. The quaint towns and villages of Como each have their own unique charm and places to explore. Visit one of the oldest churches, that date as far back as the fifth century AD, the Basilica of Sant’ Abbondio. The church building draws a lot of attention as it was built over different periods and each era brings with it its own flair, represented in the architecture. 

  1. Stay at a five-star hotel in the heart of the English countryside

The English countryside is without a doubt, one of the most relaxing locations in Europe. The scenic country roads, lush green hills that look like a sewn quilt; old historical buildings, ancient forests and striking valleys captivate all who visit. Stay at a five-star hotel in the heart of the countryside, where you can explore gorgeous manicured gardens, ride horses and have a picnic on the grass. In the summer a walk along one of the beautiful rivers is a must do, while exploring the daffodil valleys in spring is another favourite not to be missed. But don’t you worry, either one of the four seasons will have surprises in store – the countryside is absolutely breathtaking during Autumn and winter, and there’s no wonder why. If you are a real book fan, you may want to visit Bronte Country, it’s one of the most stunning places in Britain and the perfect place for any bookworm. This town draws hundreds of fans of Emily Bronte, the author of Wuthering Heights. Here, visitors will see where she lived and where she gained her inspiration for her best-selling novels. There are many five-star hotels in the countryside to choose from, it all depends on what you want to get out of your experience.
