Our expanding luxury leisure division has been globe-trotting through six continents to pick our favorite destinations for 2014. If you’re looking for adventure, experiential travel, and luxury family getaways, here’s where we recommend exploring. We’ll handcraft the journey for you:
Kangaroo Island + Barossa Valley, Australia – South Australia’s Kangaroo Island is considered the country’s Galapagos Islands, with spectacular native wildlife. Pair the visit with a luxury stay in Barossa Valley, where some of the world’s finest wines are produced.
Malawi – Lake Malawi is one of the world’s best fresh water diving destinations. Still under the tourist radar, this tiny nation dubbed the “Heart of Africa” also enables visitors to see the Big Five on safari while avoiding crowds.
Paracas, Peru – Desert meets beach and mystery in southern Peru. Charter a plane to explore the Nazca Lines, the famous ancient desert geoglyphs. Then savor dinner in a desert tent while being lulled by ocean waves in the distance.
Seychelles – One of the world’s most romantic hideaways, this archipelago nation of 115 islands makes you feel as if you’ve landed on your own private slice of paradise – with butlers! The luxe resorts are experts in pampering.
Pipa, Brazil – While World Cup fever is making Brazil super hot this year, off-the-beaten path lovers will savor this remote fishing village. A popular Belgian and Portuguese colony, it’s also a dolphin and sea turtle sanctuary with an immaculate 1.2 mile stretch of postcard-perfect beaches.
