Here on my blog I often write about the places I’d love to visit with my kids. But I have to be honest and say that sometimes the pressures of everyday life get a little bit too much, and I find myself daydreaming about dropping everything and heading off on a luxurious adult only holiday where I could get myself some me-time without having to worry about a thing! Is that bad of me? I’m hoping it isn’t.
With that in mind, I thought I’d share a little bucket list of luxury holiday destinations I’d love to be able to visit one day. I hope you enjoy having a read. And if you’ve visited any of these destinations yourself, don’t forget to leave me a comment at the end of the post to let me know what you thought of them. I love hearing about other people’s experiences. So, are you sitting comfortably? Then let’s get going …
First up, I’m dreaming of visiting a tropical island hideaway with dazzling beaches, turquoise waters, and amazing accommodations that offer an air of exclusivity and romance. Yes, Id love to visit Mauritius! The island has a fairly mild climate throughout the year, which makes it the perfect place for me to visit as I’m not a massive fan of hot weather.
Believe it or not, there’s absolutely loads to do in Mauritius. It’s not just for those of us who want to lounge on the beach all day soaking up the sunshine! I could definitely see myself heading down to Port Louis, the capital of Mauritius, and home of the super stylish Waterfront. Here, I could do a spot of shopping and dine out in one of the many beautiful restaurants there, before getting my glad rags on and heading out to enjoy the nightlife.
Mauritius is also known for its rich heritage, and I’d love to visit the naval museum to learn more about this. I also fancy hiking through the forest in the hope of finding a waterfall or two, visiting the botanical gardens and diving in the beautiful turquoise sea. Mauritius offers everything I could possibly want from a getaway, and much more. Want to find out more? Then make sure you visit the website.
Next, I’ve picked out the South of France. My other half holidayed here with his family when he was younger and he always talks about how much he enjoyed it. I’d love for us to spend a weekend away here together at the Caudalie Spa in Bordeaux. Just imagine how relaxing would it be!
At luxury French hotel Les Sources de Caudalie excellent regional wines can be found in bottles, barrels and infused into facials, scrubs, massages and more. Designed to look like a country village from an antique postcard, each of the hotel’s elegant rustic buildings has a new treat for visitors to discover. Things I’d like to do while staying here include exploring the surrounding countryside on one of the hotel’s bicycles, taking in the stunning views on a horse-and-carriage ride around the winery, visiting a nearby art gallery, and of course getting some treatments at the spa. Pure bliss!
If time allowed, I’d also love to take in some of the local area. I can think of nothing more intriguing than visiting the Bordeaux Cathedral, seeing a production at the Grand Theatre and cruising down the Garonne River whilst enjoying a delicious meal and a glass of wine. I truly think that Bordeaux would be right up my street.
And last but certainly not least on my list of luxury holiday destinations I’d love to visit was actually voted as the world’s favourite by travellers during TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice Awards back in 2017. And that place, is Bali. Known for its forested volcanic mountains, iconic rice paddies, beaches and coral reefs, this beautiful Indonesian island seems like the perfect place to take a well-deserved break.
Beyond the beaches, there are many natural wonders to take in in Bali. And I for one would love to visit its verdant highlands and go hunting for one of its many photogenic waterfalls and lakes. Bali enjoys around 12-13 hours of sunshine per day, which would give me plenty of time to explore the island.
While in Bali I’d be sure to visit some of the wonderful temples they have there. There are so many of them, magnificently set against the most scenic backdrops. And, whilst most Bali temples might be centuries-old, they come to life with daily flower offerings, ornate decorations, lively processions and seasonal festivities. They’re sure to give an amazing spiritual experience no visitor will ever forget. It looks amazing!
And there you have it – 3 luxury holiday destinations I’d love to visit one day.
