Our favourite luxury holiday destinations

  • Fiji: Here, luxury comes in the shape of bolt-hole bure accommodation, butler service, private dining and spas where the sounds of the world are muffled by the jungle.
  • Bali: The sky’s the limit as far as luxury goes in Bali. This is the island of infinity pools, thatched villa accommodation with private plunge pools and hotels where staff bring around infused face towels every hour to keep you feeling peachy.
  • Thailand: Floating hotel rooms, indulgent spas and private bleached beaches where hammocks bow the tree boughs are just a few of the ways Thailand adds a touch of luxe to a holiday.
  • Maldives: The Maldives offers luxury squared. Private islands, overwater villas, private pools and barefoot sunset dinners for two are simply par for the course here.
  • Greece: The home of hedonism knows exactly how to do luxury. Watch the sunset with Champagne on a rooftop terrace in Oia, Santorini, sip cocktails in the bijoux bars of Little Venice in Mykonos, and take private catamaran trips through the gem-blue waters of Kefalonia.

Top tips on how to get a luxury holiday for less

Booking early and booking late are two ways of cutting the price of a luxury holiday. Keeping an eye on deals works a wonder, too. Prepare to be super flexible about when you travel and where you travel to and you’ll get the best bargains.

If you’re a frequent flyer or rewards club member, see if you can trade in your points for an upgrade on your flight or your hotel accommodations. Some programs like Accor’s free Le Club program offer perks like welcome drinks, priority check-in at hotel and free Wi-Fi access.
