The most exotic locations 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 has so much to offer the modern traveller with luxury holidays that will fit the most demanding of criteria. Regardless of whether it is a six star deluxe resort hotel or a more chilled out island destination, you are sure to find something that fits the bill.

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.

Mauritius is an island that has always been synonymous with the term “luxury holidays” as this Indian Ocean Island has a very high density of first class hotels. As well as being the first destination to offer the “super all inclusive properties” where you can enjoy free golf, free spa treatments and free gourmet food there is a huge choice of luxury properties offering many other board basis.

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.

For the slightly more adventurous traveller the Far East offers probably the very best value for money luxury holidays. Nearly all the luxury hotels in the Far East feature first class spas and are set on some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Far East luxury holidays also offer the perfect opportunity to enjoy a twin centre holiday visiting the exciting cities of Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok or Singapore.
