If you’re getting a bit bored with holidays in the same old locations, and are willing to spend a little more cash than you usually would, it might be worth opting for a more upmarket destination. This tiny planet of ours is home to some fantastically luxurious resorts; all you need to do is perform some research, and there’ll be no reason why you shouldn’t be relaxing in the sun very soon.
With that in mind, i’ve written this short article to help highlight some of the most popular holiday paradises in the world, alongside some of the most exotic hidden gems. Have a quick read through and see if I can inspire you.
1 – Shoal Bay – Anguilla
The island of Anguilla is renowned for it’s relaxing, almost sleepy atmosphere, but don’t be fooled by reputations, the Shoal bay area can be quite vibrant at the right time of year. With feathery white sands and clear blue waters in every direction, you’re certain to get the rest and rejuvenation you require when spending your holiday in one of the many luxury villas that line seafront.
2 – Gold Coast – Barbados
Popular with celebrities and jet-setting business people, the Gold Coast in Barbados has been attracting British tourists for over 60 years. To book a Barbados holiday in 2013, you’ll need to move fast because any vacancies in this area tend to disappear by around October, as many people pre-book their Christmas retreat.
3 – Playa del Carmen – Mexico
Located just outside of the popular tourist hotspot Cancun, this hidden gem is truly a sight for sore eyes. With pristine white sands and a much better climate than you might find in other areas of the country, Playa del Carmen is certain to become very popular with upper-class Brits over the next few years.
4 – Sandy Cay – British Virgin Islands
For anyone who love snorkeling and swimming, opting to travel to Sandy Cay could be a very wise move. This area has some of the clearest waters in the entire world, but you better be ready to get your wallet out, as prices can be extremely high. Next door you’ll find Richard Branson’s private island called Necker – which he famously rents out for £10,000 per night.
5 – Rosalie Bay – Dominica
As this area of Dominica is mostly undeveloped, you’ll get a real “at one with nature” feeling when you spend a few days and nights relaxing on the wild Atlantic coastline. You’ll also have no trouble finding some really cool hiking routes, so make sure you bring your kit, as the nearest city is around a 20 minute drive away.
6 – West Snake Caye – Honduras
This resort is set seventeen miles away from the beautiful town of Punta Gorda in the port of Honduras. With endangered species and mangrove trees at every turn, this is by far the most exclusive hidden gem on this list. Travelling here can be just as expensive as your accommodation, so make sure you factor these costs in when booking to avoid disappointment.
7 – Costa Alegre – Mexico
It’s probably unsurprising to see Mexico make it onto this list twice, as many people are now realising just how desirable this destination really is. Costa Alegre boasts over 2 miles of clean, calm coastline and only a dozen or so villas for accommodation, meaning you won’t have to fight for beach space – plus, you might even bump into Brad Pitt, as he’s known to adore the location.
So there you have it guys. Those are the most highly exotic and luxurious places in the entire world, and not visiting them at some point during your lifetime would be a crying shame, so start planning your holiday now!
