Top tips to make your travels more luxurious

Travel expert Jason Short offers some top tips on making your travels even more luxurious.

Indulging in a luxurious trip complete with stylish accommodation, personalised service, authentic things to do and Michelin star restaurant food is one of the finer things in life that you should experience at least once. Whether you’re visiting a luxurious casino to practice your chip tricks at the blackjack table or you want to sail on a private yacht complete with champagne and cheese tasting, there are plenty of ways to make your travels more luxurious.

Choose your location carefully
Luxury and an appreciation of the finer things in life can differ depending on which country you are visiting on your travels. It is important to look for the best of the best, and choose somewhere that will offer you an intimate, personalised experience with high class accommodation and world class amenities that you can take advantage of. An example of this would be in countries such as The Maldives, Thailand, Mexico and Dubai.

Fly first class
You can start and end your trip in style by flying first class. This will give you the ultimate flying experience through a range of luxury amenities such as extra leg room, champagne, big screen TV, excellent food and more. This is particularly important if you are planning on travelling for a long distance, as travelling can be an uncomfortable and at times unpleasant experience. Traveling first class will make sure your travels have no trouble.

Use frequent flyer miles for first class or business class
Travelling internationally can be quite expensive, so booking ahead and using frequent flyer miles and loyalty programs for your seats will allow you to upgrade your flying experience to one you may not have been able to pay for. With airport lounge access and a flatbed for a better sleep, you can be sure to arrive at your destination feeling refreshed and ready to relax, when flying first class or business class. This can also reduce the effects of jet lag, which, when travelling on a long flight, can end up ruining a trip.

Stylish upscale accommodation
Stylish, upscale accommodation offers personalised levels of service that provides an extra-ordinary, more intimate experience. Luxury and boutique hotels or villas often offer sumptuous suites, complete with space, comfort and high quality. The qualities you should look for in stylish upscale accommodation is its location, a quiet atmosphere and a personalised service so you can be certain to thoroughly enjoy your trip. Accommodation on your travels is more than just a room to sleep in. It should offer you the ultimate relaxation with everything you need right at your fingertips. Staying world class with a tranquil atmosphere will make your travels ultimately relaxing and luxurious. Upgrading your room can also be a fantastic way of making your travels even more luxurious than you had originally planned.

Expand your experiences
When you’re travelling there are many things that you might want to do, be it shopping in boutique stores, discovering the best designers in the city or indulging in an extensive international experience in order to fully immerse yourself in the culture of the country you are in. Whether you’re looking at expanding your experiences to helicopter rides, Michelin star lunches, sipping on champagne or simply indulging in creative cocktails laying by a private pool, there are many ways to fully indulge yourself in luxury throughout your travels.

Indulge in culture & cuisine
Indulging in local cuisine doesn’t have to be a scary experience. There are plenty of Michelin star restaurants that may take your fancy and some of the world’s delicacies can be delicious. Whether you’re looking to sip on champagne and caviar, tempt your taste buds with the aphrodisiac of oyster, taste the subtle flavour of a lobster or treat yourself to foie gras, there are plenty of luxury foods and dining options that you can enjoy no matter where you are in the world. If culinary delights are what you’re searching for on your travels, there are a huge number of gourmet destinations that offer unique flavours, balance textures and experiment with a country’s identity through food.

Take the time to care for you
Taking the time out from a fast-paced lifestyle at work or home is one of the main reasons people travel. To give yourself a luxurious experience, it is important to take care of yourself over others. Whether this will be done through a personalised spa experience or indulging in a relaxing yoga session on a beach in Bali. Finding inner peace and discovering a form of relaxation that is perfect for you is an important way to enjoy your travels in a luxury setting.
