One – or more – of these amazing places. Passports at the ready
Warm sunny days, paired with cool, breezy evenings makes June the perfect month to visit the island of the gods. You can sample some of the world’s best surf, practise your downward dog in Ubud or take a tour of Monkey Forest – bliss.
And if that doesn’t persuade you, this will… W Retreat and Spa in Seminyak has a Whatever/Wherever VIP Concierge who will help you book that surfing trip, while the famed COMO Shambhala estate is in Ubud. Taxi!
FIJI AND NEW ZEALAND
Why have one holiday, when you can have two? Book a trip to New Zealand and Fiji, and you can enjoy a summer holiday and winter break all rolled into one. Thanks to the fact it’s now winter in New Zealand and constant summer in Fiji, you can swoosh down the slopes one week, then relax on the beach the next. Now that’s what we call one great getaway.
And if that doesn’t persuade you, this will… The Spire in Queenstown will arrange ski hire for you so you can hit the slopes as soon as you arrive, while divers will pleased to know that the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort can be found on Vanua Levu in Fiji.
Called the best safari in Africa, Botswana really takes some beating. Expect vast savannas teaming with wildlife, breathtaking landscapes and chic safari lodges. If you want to live out your Out of Africa moment, this is the place to do it.
And if that doesn’t persuade you, this will… The luxurious &Beyond Sandibe Okavango Lodge in Botswana comes with its own massage sala.
For an awfully big adventure, head to Peru. The rainy season is over, which means it’s the perfect time to go trekking, spy festivals and take on Machu Picchu. Go on – you know you want to!
And if that doesn’t persuade you, this will… Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge lies at the gates of the famed Inca citadel, so you can tumble out of bed and step straight into the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As Audrey Hepburn said herself: “Paris is always a good idea”. But now it’s even more of a good idea thanks to the fact that the Ritz has just opened its doors following an USD$22 million renovation. The VIP makeover includes a tunnel, so the A-list can avoid the gaze of the paparazzi and the launch of the world’s first-ever Chanel Spa. Ooh la la!
And if that doesn’t persuade you, this will… Oh, we see that you’re already persuaded…
