With the everyday stresses of work and other responsibilities, sometimes the perfect way to unwind is to treat yourself to a truly luxurious experience. Of course, a luxury experience can encompass many things. It could mean complete isolation in ultra luxury accommodation, treating yourself to a pampering of massages and treatments or experiencing the truly exclusive. We share our top four luxurious experiences where you can truly unwind and relax.
New Zealand has gained international acclaim for its stunning landscapes of rolling hills, mountainous terrain and nature experiences. So it’s no wonder that travellers visit the area looking for an indulgent experience encompassing the unique tapestry that is New Zealand. And on a hilltop overlooking some of the best scenery in New Zealand is the Azur Lodges just outside of Queenstown.

We recommend treating yourself to an in-villa massage and mini spa treatment. Take a sneak peek at Azur Lodges »
Described as progressive and glamorous, Dubai has become a popular destination not just for business, but for leisure too. Explore activities that are not so common for such a high density city, from skiing at Ski Dubai - an indoor ski resort to exploring the desert on quad-bikes. And with an active shopping, dining and nightlife scene, you’re sure to find somewhere to please your intrigue. So where do you stay in such a remarkable metropolis? We suggest staying at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, a luxurious beach resort located to the west of the iconic Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. The resort features the multi-international award-winning Talise Ottoman Spa, one of the largest and most luxurious spas in the Middle East! With a diverse selection of restaurants and an ideal location next to the beachside, you are sure to feel spoiled at this exotic resort.
The Cook Islands are a popular area to explore a luxury experience in a tropical setting - with flowing cocktails, crystal clear water and friendly locals. Most will recommend you visit the main island of Rarotonga for your holiday, as that’s where the most popular resorts and main airport are. For something a little different, we suggest staying at Aitutaki Escape Beachfront Accommodation on the island of Arutanga. Far less recognised and more remote, a stay here will provide a secluded experience other Cook Island visitors won’t ever experience. Each villa features its own private pool and has direct beachfront access. Enjoy a private and remote experience at one of the Cook Island’s best kept secrets. Explore this remote paradise »
How can we list our favourite luxury experience without a mention of the Maldives? Known to most travellers as the ‘go-to’ place for complete relaxation and seclusion, the Maldives is the perfect tropical paradise to experience luxury. Soneva Fushi in the Maldives is an ideal place to stay for those looking to experience the best of the Maldives. The ‘sunset side’ is ideal for snorkelers searching for dolphin sightings. Whereas the ‘sunrise side’ is ideal for privacy and tranquility. Regardless, you’ll view the famous crystal clear blue waters, white sand beaches and ultimate seclusion few have ever experienced. Each villa is designed to compliment its natural surroundings for a wholesome stay. Enjoy spa treatments, diving, private sandbank experiences and so much more.
