Hit the road, USA style
Nothing beats a road trip for a feeling of adventure. Jump in your dream convertible and discover America’s West Coast on a self-drive past the trendy beaches of Malibu, Orange County and the lights of Santa Monica at dusk. Head inland to the dusty Nevada desert to experience the glitz of Las Vegas, and head south for the jaw-dropping views of the Grand Canyon.
Barefoot luxury in the Seychelles
With no TV in sight in each luxurious room, the Beach Villas on Denis Island in the Seychelles have been perfectly designed for disconnecting from the world. Set on a private white sand island, the whole property has been built using natural local materials, and your personal space includes an outdoor bathroom, private courtyard and sea-facing deck. Kick off your shoes, melt into island life and you’ll never want to leave.

Wake up with lions
Wake up with the lions on a dawn game drive from super luxurious Kings Pool Camp in Botswana. Each sumptuous canvas tent here comes with its own private plunge pool, letting you watch wild animals at their watering hole while you enjoy yours. Follow in the footsteps of a certain British singer who chose this camp for his honeymoon for the fabulous food, perfect privacy, tailored service and luxury accommodation.

Live like a sheikh in a palatial Arabian-style tent amongst the stunning sand dunes of the UAE at the unique Banyan Tree Al Wadi. Surrounded by the peace and beauty of the desert you’ll feel a million miles from the bling of Dubai, when in fact, you’re only 50 minutes away. Explore the desert by foot, bike or jeep, wash off the sand in the world-class spa or simply soak up the sun in your private plunge pool. Bliss.

The crème de la Caribbean crème
If a four poster bed, marble bathroom, private plunge pool and butler service to your own private villa are on your wish list, look no further than the Viceroy, Anguilla. Relax on the soft white sand beach or head into the clear turquoise sea for water-based adventure, such as a deluxe travel day at sea – complete with scuba and fishing instruction. There is also a spa and 5 restaurants to choose from in tranquil, designer surroundings. What more could you ask for?
