luxury holidays

Adventure holidays have been the tour de force in recent times, but even the most active of us need a little luxury sometimes. Whether you're after an all-out family holiday, or an all-inclusive break, we've got plenty of luxury options for you to choose from. We’re talking five-star resorts with fine dining, plush rooms, infinity pools – all the good stuff. And don’t think that treating yourself has to break the bank. Luxury holidays do cost a little extra, sure, but bide your time and there’s some bargain deals to be had. Intrigued? We've rounded up our top five destinations for a luxe escape. Remember to keep an eye on the top offers section on our homepage to score a good deal.

 

Luxury Holidays in the Maldives – Dhigali Resort

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.

Luxury Holidays in Hawaii – Moana Surfrider Resort and Spa

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 is decorated with Hawaiian Westin botanicals and permeated by the scent of white tea. Plus, there’s a private beach and the transformative rituals of the namesake spa. Why not turn your Hawaii holiday into a multi-centre trip, and pop over to mainland USA while you're there.

Luxury Holidays in the Seychelles – The Coco de Mer Hotel

The Seychelles are a slice of Heaven, floating 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 on your hotel-provided bikes, while the Black Parrot Junior Suites boast a commanding view of the ocean from their granite balcony. If you’re getting hitched, choose from three different wedding themes: tropical, ocean and traditional.

Luxury Holidays in Malaysia – The Datai

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.

Luxury Holidays in Bali – COMO Uma Ubud

Luxurious 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.
