If you’re looking to go all out for your next vacation, these especially luxurious trips are sure to fit the bill. Some of the world’s most incredible destinations that made the list include the British Virgin Islands, North America, Costa Rica, and so many more we couldn’t list here.
Guana Island, British Virgin Islands
Guana Island is a private 850-acre resort island in the British Virgin Islands, known as a playground for Britain’s wealthy. It has no public access, which means that you’ll need to fly into neighboring Beef Island and then take the resort’s boat to your final destination. You can spend your days lounging in a hammock and sipping exotic drinks, enjoying the powdery white sand beaches practically all to yourself. You can get more active by going snorkeling in the clear, warm, azure waters, hiking, and taking yoga or tennis lessons. The all-inclusive experience includes sea view cottages with meals, including gourmet offerings, as well as snacks, wine, and use of all facilities.
Amangiri - Big Water, Utah
Amangiri is a very high-end luxury resort nestled in a remote area of Canyon Country in southern Utah. It’s a place where you’ll be treated like a VIP, and not surprisingly, quite a few celebrities have been known to stay here, from Kiley Jenner, Justin and Hailey Bieber to Brad Pitt. Guests can sip their morning coffee while watching a sunrise over 400-year-old limestone formations and then take off on horseback or on foot with a personal guide to explore the red rock canyons. After a day of adventure, there are pampering spa treatments and mind-blowing organic dishes to enjoy before returning to one of the chic suites, all with private plunge pools and terraces that open to a brilliant night sky filled with countless stars.
Hana-Maui Resort, Hawaii
Hana-Maui Resort is one of the most luxurious resorts on Maui, located in the peaceful town of Hana, set among lush rolling fields and palm trees overlooking Kaihalulu Bay. Each of its guest rooms, suites, bungalows and family residences has a private lanai and full or partial ocean views and is designed without clocks, radios, or TVs. There’s also an on-site restaurant serving farm-to-table fare, an indoor and outdoor spa, a yoga center and pavilion, and a wellness center.
Nayara Tented Camp Hotel - La Fortuna, Costa Rica
An offshoot of Nayra Springs Resort, Nayara Tented Camp Hotel offers luxurious tents inspired by a high-end African safari. They offer 1,700 square feet of living space, each set on its own platform with a plunge pool that’s fed by the hot springs nearby while boasting spectacular views of Arenal Volcano. If it sounds familiar, that might be because Eugene Levy stayed here in episode two of The Reluctant Traveler, a comedic travel documentary on Apple TV. It’s the perfect place to do nothing but relax and perhaps soak in the hot pools or take part in all sorts of activities, from hiking and horseback riding to ziplining, mountain biking, and whitewater rafting. There’s a spa with open-sided treatment rooms overlooking the lush surroundings, and outstanding dining on-site in a magnificent rainforest setting too.
Fogo Island Inn - Newfoundland, Canada
An all-inclusive luxury resort, Fogo Island Inn offers one of the world’s most stunning views set on what’s often called the “edge of the Earth.” Located on Fogo Island, accessed by ferry from Farewell on the Newfoundland mainland, it’s an escapist’s fantasy come true. Every room comes with handmade Scandinavian-inspired furniture, a wood stove or fireplace, giant soaking tubs, and expansive ocean views. In the spring, you can watch for blue-tinged icebergs that float by while summer brings the chance to marvel at the whales that come to feast on capelin. In late fall and winter on clear nights, you might even see the colorful northern lights.
