Not everyone likes flying. You could hate the idea of being high in the sky or perhaps you just dislike the wait times that you experience at the airport. Whatever your reason for disliking flying, it’s not unreasonable or uncommon to prefer more grounded holiday ideas. But you might feel like without flying, you’re limited to what you can and can’t do as a luxury holiday.
Luckily, pampering yourself doesn’t mean you have to get on a plane. There are many luxury holiday ideas that you can indulge in without ever stepping foot into an airport or getting into the sky. To help you plan your next luxury holiday, here are a couple of tips on where to go.
If you’re not against sailing, then how about taking a luxury cruise? Cruises usually last for a couple of days and there is plenty of entertainment and fine dining aboard the cruise. There are also shops that range from typical high street brands to luxurious and expensive designer labels. You can eat everything from typical fast food such as McDonald’s all the way to Michelin-starred experiences, and there is entertainment ranging from video games to swimming and lounging. Some cruises even allow you to stop at tropical destinations for tours of the various islands around the world, and some include water sport activities.
However, if getting on a cruise sounds like a lengthy time investment, then you could also consider a service like Prime Luxury Rentals if you want to get on the sea. Rent a luxury yacht, take a couple of friends with you, bring drinks and food, and you’ve got a stylish and relaxing way to throw a party. In fact, most rentals even come with a captain to pilot the boat and drinks to keep your thirst quenched!
Planning a small weekend break or even a length holiday in another city typically comes with a few considerations. First of all, what do you plan to do? Is it a trip for food, perhaps you want to see a specific show, or maybe you just want to visit your friends. Whatever you decide, you’re probably going to pick a budget hotel because if you’re spending most of your time outdoors, there’s no need for a luxury hotel. Sadly, this is what many people think and it leads them to believe that five-star hotels are just not worth the effort or money.
But they’d be wrong. Luxury hotels are in a league of their own and some hotels could even become the attraction that makes you want to visit another city. They have wonderful buffets and fine dining experiences, lots of entertainment such as swimming pools, and amenities like a gym and spa. You’ll be surprised at the number of activities you can indulge yourself in and you won’t even need to leave the hotel—the extra sights and places to visit around the hotel will just be extra. So why not book a weekend at a luxury hotel and spend the end of the week pampering yourself?
