The world is slowly opening up to the magic of travel. It is taking time to readjust, but it is happening no matter what. As a result, the travel plans are rampant, the itineraries are unique and people are splurging more than ever. As if they saved the past few years to invest it all in travel and luxury. Lock down inspired our minds to travel to places that we never imagined to put on our bucket list. Imagination can surely do that. But to our surprise, most travel lovers have taken it upon them to make these rare dreams come true.
There are those who love the mountains, some who enjoy the cities, and then there are those who love the depths of the deep blue oceans and seas. Can you imagine the sand-kissed beaches, the dizziness triggered by the salty sea breeze, the cool drinks, the sost, soothing sound of the waves, exciting and calming all at the same time. With so many countries opening their arms for tourism, offering a warm welcome to domestic and international travelers, this is the right time to plan a fabulous trip to the never never lands of the world.
Indulge in a luxury stay
Whether your personal preference is the gorgeous beachside accommodation, a rustic-style stay, or a well-equipped apartment, you can choose from the best beach resorts in the world. They come with utmost luxury. Now how would you define luxury? Isn’t it a relative term, just like ‘love’? What we understand by luxury, however, is anything that lets you be you, just a bit better, and pampered to the hilt. Imagine relaxing spas, lavish spread of food, unparalleled hospitality, gorgeous sunset views, and hours and hours of undisturbed, unadulterated fun. To you it might mean hours of sleep, to others, it could be the disconnect from the busy life.
Now add to that the lure of the turquoise waters begging you to swim, the palms waving to grab your attention, the brilliant reef adding to your excitement, and the verdant islands insisting that you stay back forever.
Most exclusive beach resorts
To take in the destination, the best way is to find the loveliest accommodations. We suggest the most exclusive beach resorts that come with an array of amenities to enjoy. You can choose from a gamut of luxury villas for a private stay, or even entire private islands if you may. The best part is that such properties will come with amazing pools (think infinity), personal chefs, well-stocked bars, restaurants serving exotic global cuisines, hot tubs and perhaps helipads too. They redefine luxury for you.
If you think that you have experienced one high end beach resort, that is what you can expect at the rest of them, you are wrong. These properties come in variety, can be theme-based resorts with lazy rivers, can be over-the-water villas with private swim-up suites, can be a sun-drenched property allowing you to bare your body and relax. No matter where you choose to stay, consider the best beaches around the world.
