5 Luxury Getaways to die for
When you book a luxury vacation, you already have an idea of what to expect. While not all hotels and resorts are the same, they do offer a variety of similar options, making it difficult to choose just one. You may be hard-pressed to choose the infinity pool over the spa mud bath, or maybe the regal environment of one seems a little more appealing than the simplicity of another. Each generation of new resorts and hotels brings to the table something interesting and unique, and well worth checking out.
A truly luxury vacation should include a few specific details, such as:
- A relaxing atmosphere
- Friendly staff
- Comfort and convenience
The best luxury hotels and resorts don't necessarily have to be 5-star or winners of many prestigious awards. In fact, some of the world's most lavish getaways are found tucked away on private islands with little contact to the outside world.
