What is it with a holiday that just makes you want a new one? Isn’t the whole point that you go a holiday to recharge your battery, so you are all fresh to start working again? Then why are we all, first day back at our desk craving more time to explore or relax? One of my best tricks, is to always have the next holiday, it being a long weekend or your next long trip, booked before your sit back at the desk again.
So if you are one of the people that haven’t booked anything yet, here are 8 destinations that are high on my bucket list.
Ryad Dyor, Marrakech, Morocco
When arriving in Marrakech, be prepared to leave your sense of direction behind, so they say. Characterized by small alleyways that are only accessible by foot, this is one of the oldest medinas in the world. Walking through the Sidi Ben Slimane neighborhood you should stumble across Ryad Dyor Boutique Hotel.
Huus Gstaad, Gstaad, Switzerland
Friendly and welcoming, Huus Gstaad typifies the very best of Alpine life, marrying natural splendor and outdoor adventure with high-style comfort.
Thonga Beach Lodge, Elephant Coast, South Africa
Four hours north of Durban, as the timber plantations and pineapple fields give way to lush wilderness, you enter the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. ISimangaliso means miracle and wonder, which really can’t be bad right?
Le Sirenuse, Almalfi Coast, Italy
Pastal facades cling to steep cliffs above a sea of the clearest blue water. Back in 1951 four Nepolitan brothers turned their family house overlooking the bay of Positano into a charming hotel, Le Sirenuse definitely makes its mark.
Okahirongo Lodge, Purros Conservancy, Namibia
In the vast Namibian wilderness, in a landscape of rugged beauty where the stars rain down the night sky, the stillness penetrates your very soul. This is where you’ll find the loxurios Okahirongo River Camp.
Playa Viva, Guerrero, Mexico
On the Pacific Coast of Mexico, near the small village Juluchuca, sits the eco-chic Playa Viva, an enchanting balance in sustainability, hospitality and luxury – perfect spot for a yoga retreat.
Memmo Príncipe Real, Lisbon, Portugal
In the heart of Lisbon’s trendiest neighborhood—amid gardens, tranquil squares, and a vibrant social scene—sits the area’s first five-star luxury boutique.
The Robey, Chicago, United States
Towering over two happening neighborhoods and boasting a rooftop cocktail lounge, The Robey is a hip new star in Chicago’s heavens.
