Going on a Luxury Holiday: What Does the Extra Money Buy You?

There are times in all our lives when we deserve to be spoiled. Whether you’ve had a stressful few months at work, or life is simply getting a bit too much, a luxury holiday can be just what you need to reinvigorate yourself.

Before committing to booking a luxury holiday however, we’re sure you’re more than a little curious about what that extra money buys you.Luxury Holiday

Privacy

This is, by far, the biggest selling point of any luxury holiday. Rather than having to compete with the throngs of other holiday makers for space on the beach, for example, luxury holidays tend to include access to your own private beach.

This extra privacy and seclusion may come at a premium, but a price tag cannot be put on the positive impact that it can have on your enjoyment of any holiday destination; it’s certainly worth spending that little bit extra.  

Facilities

Access to high quality facilities is an inherent part of any luxury holiday. A luxury resort will contain a vast swath of activities and facilities for its guests, including private swimming pools, gyms, saunas, Jacuzzis, access to private boats and in some cases, even romantic dining experiences, on secluded islands.

In addition to high quality facilities, luxury holidaymakers can expect only the finest and most comfortable living quarters. Stylish design, soft mattresses and all the mod cons are certain to come as standard.

Service

While you would be right to expect a higher level of service on a luxury holiday, you will still be pleasantly surprised by the care and attention that you receive from members of staff.

Express check-ins for luxury holiday customers is quite routine. You will be given priority seats on your flight and upon arrival, your hotel’s staff will work to ensure that you want for nothing.

Companies such as Club Med, for example, even go that one step further and offer luxury holidaymakers access to private concierge services.

Food and drink

The finest wines, freshest ingredients and most diverse menus await you on your luxury holiday. With many luxury resorts hiring some of the world’s most highly-rated chefs, booking a luxury getaway is a cast-iron guarantee that you will be feasting on some of the finest food that the culinary world has to offer, while sipping delectable wines, against an idyllic backdrop of your own choice.

A once-in-a-lifetime experience

The individual facets of a luxury holiday are impressive in their own right, but it is the experience, when taken as a whole, that will stay with you for a lifetime.

Whether you fancy some time on the slopes of the Alps, scuba diving through the crystal waters of the Dominican Republic, or relaxing on the pristine beaches of the Turkish Riviera, the memories that you’ll create on a luxury holiday alone, are certainly worth paying that little extra.
