The start of a new year is the best time to plan your next luxury travel experience. As pockets of the world begin to open back up to visitors, travel is re-emerging with a new ideal in mind: secluded paradise in faraway lands.
Private jet travel, luxury yacht voyages, or both? You can maintain the balance of distance and full immersion into the awe-inspiring beauty of the natural world at the same time. Explore a remote island getaway on marine sanctioned waters, trek a misty mountain top lined with culinary delicacies and practicing monks. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most unique travel destinations and expeditions for your summer 2022 dream getaway.
Raja Ampat is one of the primary destinations of luxury vacation in Indonesia and sets the scene for the ideal summer getaway with 40,000 square kilometers of coral reefs, jungle-covered islands, limestone karsts, white-sand beaches, and a glimmering turquoise sea. This remarkably beautiful corner of the globe remains vastly undisturbed by modern development, making luxury yachts the best way to travel and enjoy the scenery of its many remote islands.
Develop a cultured palette this summer on a one-of-a-kind culinary expedition through Bhutan. Forage the deep pine forests for tender fern tips and rare species of mushrooms, explore vibrant farmers’ markets, and learn about the fascinating gastronomic culture of this isolated kingdom. Epicurean cuisine will be a highlight, with tailor-made expeditions hosted by a well-known chef. Arrive and depart via private jet and enjoy 5-star luxury accommodations at scenic lodges in Paro, Thimphu, and Punakha.
Board a private luxury yacht and set sail through the protected marine sanctuary of Komodo National Park (Komodo Island in Indonesia), home to the world’s largest lizard: the ancient Komodo Dragon. Snorkel over coral reefs, kayak the cerulean seas, swim with manta rays and dolphins and hike across the savannah. You’ll return home on a private jet, awe-inspired and revived by this one-of-a-kind expedition.
Home to a rich history of saints and sages, ancient monasteries, museums, and cultural sites of Bhutanese relics, spend your summer in the land of the Thunder Dragon, where you’ll immerse yourself in the spirituality, heritage, and landscape of this kingdom in the clouds. Visit the monasteries, attend purification ceremonies, archery matches, and blessings by Buddhist monks. Absolute luxury is assured with travel via private jet and chauffeured SUV, and accommodation provided by the most luxurious lodges available.
Enjoy remarkable views of rugged mountain peaks and verdant Snake River Valley from your luxury suite at Amangani, set in the lofty foothills of the Grand Tetons. Come in the summer to channel the spirit of the wild west on horseback, hike a myriad of mountain trails, and enjoy guided climbing adventures on the Via Ferrata. We also highly recommend a private tour of Yellowstone National Park to discover two million acres of crystal-clear lakes, roaring waterfalls, and breathtaking geysers.
