Marble bathrooms can be so overrated. So when you’re talking about invaluable vacation time, we feel pretty strongly that unbelievable experiences are in order. A hotel room filled with luxurious, all-natural bath products is great, but we’ve got ideas that are even greater to inspire you.
Treehouses: your inner kid meets your adventurous grown-up self in a treehouse. Some are super chic with amenities like heated floors and infinity edge pools while others are more rustic. There are definitely neat hideouts worth looking into if you’re a nature lover.
Private Islands: gone are the days of needing super deep pockets to land a private island getaway. The uber lux choices are still readily available, where over-the-top features can include a resident conservationist or a chef who will quite literally follow you anywhere on the island to cook. But you still can feel like a millionaire without having beaucoup bucks thanks to AirBnb’s private island offerings.
Glamping: if roughing it is not your thing, but you still want a close connection with your surroundings, glamping may be right up your alley. Think luxury camping that doesn’t sacrifice comfort. Some of the coolest experiences we’ve seen include safari lodges, tipis, igloos, and caves.
River Cruising: Imagine having your very own historian onboard a small ship and a chef who picks up ingredients from wherever you go to provide a taste of regional cuisine. That’s just part of the river cruise magic. Because river boats are not nearly as large as traditional cruise ships, they have access to small ports throughout Europe and the Asia Pacific that large ships can’t get to. That means an even more authentic experience for you.
