4 Most Luxurious Destinations in 2018

4 Most Luxurious Destinations in 2018


As travel has become more accessible for all, seeking the perfect destination for a vacation for the traveler who likes the finer things in life has become a little harder. The definition of a luxury destination varies from traveler to traveler; is seclusion in a natural environment a luxury, or is it the standard of the food and service that a hotel provides? To cover all bases, here are 4 of the most luxurious destinations for you to consider in 2018.

  1. Best for Conservation

While Rwanda made the headlines for terrible reasons in 1994, this African country has been transformed in recent years and is now unrecognizable from its previous horrors, and it has reinvented itself as a progressive go-to destination for those who like the wilder side of luxury. Visitors can see the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat and enjoy a safari in the re-established Akagera National Park which is a must for safari veterans.

  1. Best for Romance

You cannot fail to feel the romance on the ancient streets of Paris, from the discreet doorways that welcome visitors to hidden gardens that dot between the mansions of the fashion houses. There is something for everyone in Paris, and it caters for all tastes within this bustling metropolis. Wonder at the mist on the River Seine with the Notre Dame in sight, the magic of the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, and food to die for.

  1. Best for Elegance

While you are in Europe, you should take advantage of just how close you are to other fabulous luxury destinations. Besides, any European flight delay of over 3 hours means that you are eligible for compensation that can pursue on your behalf. You truly have no excuse! For an experience of luxurious elegance, head to Venice, and specifically to the Hotel Cipriani. You will be able to rejuvenate from exploring the streets and beauties of Venice in this hotel which you’ll find on an island in the Venetian lagoon. You will be amazed how such a grand and elegant hotel can also provide such an intimate and relaxed atmosphere.

  1. Best for Glamor

Most adults in Nicaragua will be able to remember the Sandinista Revolution which ended only in 1990 clearly, but they have also witnessed its reinvention as a luxury beach holiday destination with strong safety and security, and newfound glamor. While many people head to the Caribbean for beach holidays, Nicaragua provides a quieter alternative that is drawing a wealthier crowd to the new super resorts that have been developed.

In deciding which destination to head for, you must think about your personal definition of luxury. What is it that would set a destination apart from others for you? The options open to you are varied, and your interests and likes must be considered. If you are making a trip to Europe, try and incorporate as many of the countries that you can – they benefit from being on average only a two-hour flight apart.

    All these destinations sound unique and beautiful. I want to visit Nicaragua someday. Another luxurious destination I would add is Dubai. I went there, and all the buildings and scenery were amazing! 🙂

      I was actually in Dubai a few months ago, the cityscape is definitely unlike anything I’ve ever seen before!

    All of these locations look stunning. I loved Paris and while I went to Rome, I wanted to go to Venice. I’ve also always wanted to go to Africa, too!

    Such wonderful suggestions! I love to travel as well but my heart is in mountains. If there is a town nestled in between peaks, I am drawn to it!

      We certainly love the mountains for skiing! My family and I recently returned from Vail 🙂
