luxury holidays

Adventure holidays have been the tour de force in recent times but even the most active of us need a little luxury. If you’re determined to undertake an active holiday, book a night of spa-luxury in a five star hotel to sooth the ailments of your expedition. Alternatively, cut to the chase and get lose yourself in the finer things in life all holiday long.

We’re talking five stars, fine dining, sundowners, infinity pools – all the good stuff. And don’t think that means it has to break the bank. Luxury costs a little extra, sure, but bide your time and there’s some bargain deals to be had. Have a glance below at Travelbag’s five recommended destinations and keep an eye on the top offers section of the Travelbag homepage to score a bargain luxury holiday.

Dhigali Resort – Dhigali, Maldives

The Maldives is becoming more and more affordable. Five star resorts on the Maldives feature private islands, infinity pools and extravagant dining options are the draw. That’s without mentioning beaches and sunsets that make it a high hitter with honeymooners. Check out the Dhigali Resort that has a sunset facing bar and a wide range of water sports activities, like parasailing, wind surfing, canoeing, and stand-up paddling. Then there’s the beginner and advanced diving lessons for those wanting to get their open water qualification whilst on holiday. Take a look at Travelbag’s five star Maldives package holidays to see what else is available.

 

Moana Surfrider Resort and Spa – Oahu, Hawaii

Hawaii’s got luxury accommodation options in spades. They’re all tucked in between volcanic features like the secret waterfalls of Kauai, nicknamed the Garden Island and the towering sea cliffs of Molokai. Our top Hawaiian choice is the Moana Surfrider Resort and Spa; the lobby of which is decorated with Hawaiian Westin botanicals and permeated by the scent of white tea. Furthermore, there’s a private beach and the transformative rituals of the namesake spa. Incorporate your Hawaiian holiday into a multi-centre trip itinerary and break up the long journey out across the Pacific.

 

The Coco de Mer Hotel – Praslin Island, Seychelles

A blip of nirvana off the coast of east Africa in the upper reaches of the Indian Ocean. Only 16 of 115 islands have luxury resorts, delivering that Holy Grail ingredient of true luxury; seclusion. The Coco de Mer Hotel on the underbelly of Praslin Island south of Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve offers just that. There’s a string of private beaches that you can cycle to (bikes provided) and the Black Parrot Junior Suites boast a commanding view of the ocean from their granite outcropping. If you’re getting hitched, choose from three different wedding themes; tropical, ocean and traditional.

 

The Datai – Langkawi, Malaysia

Langkawi is the place to be place for five star Malay luxury. Many resorts are tucked into the crevices of rainforests. Our favourite is The Datai in the northwest of the island where you can bathe in hibiscus and receive treatment in one of the four open air villas. They’re spaced out along a soft running stream verged by fragrant forest. The spa menu features ancient Malay rituals and tonics that magnify the feeling of wellness and meditation. Try the nearby Gulai House restaurant that serves Indian and Malay dishes in its rainforest setting. 

 

COMO Uma Ubud – Ubud, Bali

Luxury Bali is a big player in the high end accommodation business. Its cultural reputation as a place of healing and wellness has opened the door to luxury resorts and retreats. COMO Uma Ubud is nestled in Ubud’s rice paddies that ascend from the Denpasar lowlands to Gunung Agung. Stone courtyards, infinity-edged plunge pools and banyan trees recall the Bali of old. Tropical gardens lead in underneath the thatched roofs of sleek and bright suites. Make your way to the 25 metre swimming pool, yoga pavilion and bar through the narrow lanes planted with foliage that complete the simple village feel.
