These are just a few handpicked luxury travel locations to choose from but whichever one you decide on, you’ll have an incredible time, one that will be hard to forget.

Vacations are times of relaxation and doing things you enjoy. Finding opportunities to do new things and having some fun while you have experiences that you will always remember. Travelling in luxury can enhance this and helps create memories to be treasured forever. Luxurious accommodation, gourmet meals, and personalized services all add to the uniqueness of the experience.

You’ll need some cash to splash if you want that luxury and pampering when visiting those luxurious destinations. 

Listed below are 5 luxurious destinations that we feel are well worth splashing out on to build unforgettable moments.

Provence
If you’re looking for a luxury escape in France, that’s an alternative to Paris, then Provence with its exquisite cuisines and culture is the place to go to. 

It has an almost endless choice of luxury hotels and is a destination that has always offered stunning landscapes that generations of great artists have found alluring and inspirational for their works of art. 

Cote d'Azur gleams, while the peak of Mont Ventoux in Provence is majestic, and they definitely make for a better alternative than the city of Paris that is so overcrowded.

If you’re a culture and history buff, then exploring the picturesque towns of Provence will be right up your street. These ancient cultural sites will take you back to the Roman period and give you that historical feel. One such site is the mostly intact Théâtre antique d'Orange which was built in the 1st century A.D. 

Alternatively, if you’re a nature lover, than Provence has scented lavender fields, beautiful groves of olives, and lush pine forests for you to explore.

There are also some extraordinary landmarks that Provence is home to. You could visit the imposing Pont du Gard tower. This is a three tiered aqueduct built by the Romans that is well preserved and crosses the River Gard at a 50 metre height. You can complete your day by taking a leisurely stroll along the meandering streets of Avignon, or the Old Town of Nice, which is also quite charming.

The Galapagos Islands
Located off the coast of Ecuador are the Galápagos Islands and a favourite destination for lovers of wildlife and nature. These islands, which are like an open air  museum, offer a fascinating experience that you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll find an array of endemic species that are simply astonishing, and visitors can observe all this exotic wildlife from up close.

If you want to explore these magical islands, then book yourself on a luxury cruise via an expedition ship. Your booking should be for a small group cruise that starts and ends with a stay in the most lavish Ecuadorian hotels. You can also opt for a customized cruise for your group to these magical islands, that is specially designed for the way you want to explore them.

You can also look at visiting off the beaten path destinations in the area like the Isabela Island's Tagus Cove and Punte Vicente Roca. Go to the Fernandina Island and explore the Punta Espinoza where you can interact with not only the flamingos, but also the Galapagos penguins that are said to be the world's smallest species of penguins.

Bozburun Peninsula in Turkey
This peninsula is a picturesque destination in Turkey that straddles a forested coastline that is near to the Aegean Islands. Your luxury vacation in the Bozburun Peninsula will have you visiting olive groves, azure bays, and sheltered coves that you’ll never forget. Even at the height of summer, the beaches here are peaceful, and life in the village is centred around fishing, agriculture, and the manufacture of gulets, which are traditional wooden sailing vessels.

Your stay can be at a luxury villa while you’re visiting the Bozburun Peninsula, and immersing yourself in Turkey's peaceful rural life. There are many alternatives available for accommodation. You can get a villa with a private pool that also has spectacular views of the seas and valleys. You can hang out at cosy beachside cafes, or sit on your terrace while relaxing and watching the beautiful sunset.

Spain's Balearic islands
These islands are famous for having a breezy and laid back charm. They do have a vibrant nightlife that they’re famous for, but you can also experience a more sedate and luxurious visit. Every island has its own feel and charm, while Ibiza will give you a hedonistic vibe, the vistas on Menorca are dreamy, making the Balearic Islands the place for a luxury vacation in Spain.

Gorgeous views of the Mediterranean can be had from all the lavish villas that overlook it from each of the islands in the Balearics. You’ll get a taste of five star luxury if you stay at Casa Conchica, one of the best villas for a holiday.

This villa is tucked into the verdant green of Majorca and has lavish accommodation that gives you the ultimate in comfort and relaxation. Ibiza has modern villas that are designed for holidays, and are perched high on the hill that overlooks the deep blue waters. These villas are equipped with the most modern amenities, and come with heated pools and breath taking views. 

Seychelles
The Seychelles is one of those places that most would liken to paradise. It has flawless beaches of white sand that extend to miles, and many other diverse tropical landscapes. Seychelles is set in the Indian Ocean and is one of the islands in an archipelago of 115 islands. 

The main island of Mahe is where its capital city Victoria is located, and has a lot of colonial charm. It was first settled by the French in 1778, before the British took it over in 1841 and is a city that is of great historical significance with its rich mixture of cultures.

For some adventurous fun, you can dive among shipwrecks and other marine life, or visit nature reserves where you can see rare animals, among them, the giant Aldabara tortoises. Go hiking in the rainforest in the mountains of the Morne Seychellois National Park, where you can explore the highest mountain peak and find forests of mangrove. 

A vast variety of lavish accommodation is available, from rooms with contemporary décor, to villas that give you views of the India Ocean that cannot be surpassed so that you can have a truly memorable holiday in the Seychelles.

The Raffles Seychelles is luxurious and staying there gives you direct access to Praslan Island's beautiful sandy beaches.

These are just a few handpicked luxury travel locations to choose from but whichever one you decide on, you’ll have an incredible time, one that will be hard to forget.
