A fantastic vacation is the hallmark of any first-rate holiday. If you’re looking to relax this season and reconnect with your loved ones, here are 4 luxury destinations for the ultimate pleasure getaway.
St. Moritz, Switzerland
This Alpine resort town may be a world-renowned winter sport destination, but it remains to be one of Europe’s most exclusive (and most discrete) vacation spots. Featuring both athletic and leisure amenities, St. Moritz is the perfect blend of recreation and relaxation, set in an opulent winter wonderland that promises peace and quiet. This town is the ultimate getaway for winter sports enthusiasts, but visitors can find other entertainments in several high-end casinos, clubs and bars (including one with the world’s largest whiskey collection), spas, Michelin-starred restaurants, and luxury boutiques.
The region known as “the Dolomites” are a breathtaking mountain range in northeastern Italy which forms a part of the Southern Limestone Alps. While the mountains themselves are a wonder of nature, the picturesque town of Corvara, tucked in the quiet corner between Italy and Austria, is the peace-seeker’s paradise. It is an outdoor wonderland that surrounds visitors with 360-degrees of awe-inspiring, unspoiled vistas, and offers a unique experience of the Ladin culture—a South Tyrolian ethnic group of Swiss, Austrian, German, and Italian influences. Corvara’s peaceful seclusion is a much-needed break from fast-paced everyday living.
Bisate Lodge, Rwanda
Live like a king (or queen) in an authentic jungle getaway at the Wilderness Safaris Bisate Lodge. This secluded sanctuary only hosts six villas, all faithfully designed to resemble the traditional Rwandan palaces, and is located right in the middle of an African volcano. The eco-lodge is situated beside Volcanoes National Park, allowing guests to easily commune with nature through activities like hiking, park walks, and even encounters with native wildlife like gorillas, golden monkeys, side-striped jackals, buffalo, and elephants.
Amalfi Coast, Italy
The scenic beauty and picturesque landmarks of this breathtaking Italian coastal town has earned it a spot on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Despite its global acclaim, Amalfi Coast remains to be a fantastic spot for peace and relaxation. Dubbed as “an exemplar of a Mediterranean landscape,” the coast is a gorgeous stretch of bluffs and hollows, interspersed with terraces, coves, vineyards, and groves, anchoring the majestic Mediterranean Sea to the untamed Lattari Mountains. A natural and cultural treasure, Amalfi brings together the best of both worlds: relax in the wild magnificence of nature, and reinvigorate in the dynamic culture of Italy.
The holiday season is a wonderful time to refresh and recharge. Go on a winter paradise at St. Moritz, Switzerland, find peace and quiet in Corova, Italy, live like royalty in Bisate Lodge, Rwanda, and bask in the tropics of the Amalfi Coast, Italy.
Amalfi at City di Mare is a project by Prestige by Filinvest set against stunning land- and seascapes much like the inspiration for this charming resort-themed condominium. This master-planned community of specially-crafted living spaces and leisure concepts evoke a sense of palpable sophistication for that distinctly sublime tropical pleasure.
