Especially in today’s times, as we all were experiencing stay-at-home orders, fantasizing about our next vacation once travel returns was the new norm. A lot of time was passed filling up our Pinterest boards with white sand beaches and tropical palm trees, hoping somehow, we win the lottery to make it all come true. We’re all eager to fulfill our wanderlust needs, but what if you had no budget and could travel anywhere you desire. Let’s take a few minutes and fantasize about these four dream vacations as if money were no object.
Fiji comes to mind almost always when you think of a luxurious, tropical paradise with white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters. It is a dream location that can be budget-friendly when experienced in standard resorts, but why not experience Fiji like the rich and famous on Laucala Island.
Laucala Island is a 3,500-acre private island owned by billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz, the founder of Red Bull. Here you will find all-inclusive private villas with its own infinity pools, private dining, and huge stone bathtubs starting at $4,600-$9,600 per night. Throughout the island is a 240-acre farm growing all the fresh food needed for the five restaurants on the island, including a Rock Lounge bar located at the top of a cliff with breathtaking views. You can even find an 18-hole championship golf course! A stay on this island will also allow you to experience the blue lagoons by canoeing, snorkeling, or even taking a complimentary submarine for a ride among the reef sharks and rays. Laucala Island is the ultimate luxury resort vacation that checks off all the marks of what makes it a dream island.
When stepping off the plane in Tahiti, you will be warmly welcomed by the natives of the island placing a lei around your neck and mesmerizing you with their Tahitian dances. Tahiti is one of the 118 archipelagos located in French Polynesia that is full of blue lagoons, palm-fringed beaches, lush mountains, rainbow coral reefs, and romantic overwater bungalows. It’s what dream vacations are made of! Staying in one of the famous overwater bungalows here is the epitome of tropical luxury for the rich and famous, or honeymooners. Included at the luxurious villas are private plunge pools, attentive butler service, and private beach dinners experienced in the most breathtaking settings.
Tahiti has all kinds of activities to do to make it an unforgettable trip. You can book a private Jet Ski tour across the crystal clear waters, go on a shark and ray safari via a private boat, and even rent a Porsche to cruise you to yacht club restaurants and clubs around the island. If you’re ready to put your hiking boots on, then be sure to make time for a hike up an extinct volcano and bathe in magnificent waterfalls along the way.
Tahiti offers a mix of culture, adventure, and indulgence that really makes it a vacation you only think about in your dreams.
If you’re looking for a safari get-away but in luxury, then South Africa is just the place. Cape Town is Africa’s most glamorous city. Located on the coast, you can get a little bit of safari and a little bit of beach time. Indulge in the cultural cuisines of southern Africa with a food tour along the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront with a view of the dazzling ocean, then make your way inland for a wine and dine at the Vineyards around Franschhoek.
After exploring the food, culture, and coastline of Cape Town with a private guide, make your way to Kruger National Park and stay in the most luxurious stays at Richard Branson’s Ulusaba. The views at Ulusaba Rock Lodge are breathtaking, as it sits on a hilltop for full panoramic views. At the base of the cliff is a watering hole, where you can see a rhino sleeping nearby or hyenas strolling through from the private viewing deck of your lodge. Each room at the lodge even has its own infinity plunge pools that offer gorgeous views! During your stay, you can adventure in an open 4×4 vehicle for a game drive to enjoy South Africa’s nature and even catch sightings of the Big Five. The Ulusaba is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience South Africa in a whole new way.
Cruise Through the Mediterranean
Exploring the Mediterranean attracts luxury travelers every year, but why not go big and cruise into your dream vacation on a private mega-yacht. Cruising around on a private mega-yacht sounds exotic and glamorous because it is. While chartering a fully crewed luxury yacht, you will experience gourmet meals, fine wines, service at your fingertips, and the experience to wake up every day in a different port or country to explore. The best part is the flexibility and privacy. You can choose to spend a few days in a certain location or spend each day in a new one. It’s all up to you! Cruising around the Mediterranean will give you totally different experiences every day. You can explore the ancient ruins of the Roman Empire in Italy, wine and dine in Marseille, France, or explore the volcanic islands of Spain. There are many beautiful coastline cities around the Mediterranean that are waiting for you to explore by yacht!
