Top Exotic Luxury Destinations

Since the early 2000s, there has been a significant turnaround in the way we perceive travel. Whether it is the Millennials who have made wandering to places far and wide a part of their culture, or the ever-growing middle-class with their disposable income, travel is the in-thing, and people are ready to step out of their homes to discover a world packed with stunning sights, and diverse cultures.

There’s also been a change in the way we travel. The boundaries that once existed between different types of travel are slowly dissolving with backpacker hostels becoming flashier and glamping becoming a norm, even though purists believe it is not precisely camping. There now exists opportunities for everyone to travel in any way they want to, whether it is by roughing it out or enjoying their time in the lap of luxury.

Another industry trend has been the revival of exotic destination that are attracting travellers in mass numbers. This has led to locations around the world, opening up luxurious accommodations that cater to enthusiasts who enjoy the good things in life. If you want to experience the exotic while sipping on cocktails and lounging on the beach or immerse yourselves in vibrant local traditions that never ceases to amaze, check out these three fantastic exotic options that give you the best of both worlds.


Spring break central for many, there’s a lot to Mexico than partying and just going crazy. It’s idyllic location, and temperate climate makes it the perfect place to bask in the sun and take it easy. Resorts with infinity pools, ocean views, and luxurious spas are typical and the ideal respite when you want to visit the many wonders of Mexico. As a country brimming with enchanting ancient surprises and colourful people, there’s something truly magical about visiting its many sights while coming back to your luxurious abodes that guarantee to accentuate any holiday to a whole new level.


For the longest of time, India was a destination popularised by backpackers. While there were great hotels all along, it lacked a certain luxurious appeal, at least in the eyes of most travellers. Things are a lot different now as luxury accommodations are found dotted along the length and breadth of this beautiful country. From old forts converted into amazing residentials in Rajasthan and seaside villas with private plunge pools to air conditioned boathouses in the backwaters of Kerala, India is now the perfect amalgamation of exotic and luxury.


An island nation that has been in the news as it struggles with the effects of global warming, Maldives is quite simply heaven on earth. As the sea level around them rises and the future of the country is in doubt, now is the right time to take in its beauty, for it may be lost forever soon. Most of the liveable islands in the Maldives are luxury resorts, including some of the very best in the world. From on-water villas to fine-dining options, Maldives is romantic, secluded, and everything that a dream vacation should be about. It is the place you go to escape from the world and indulge in luxury like nowhere else.
