Nowadays when planning your long-awaited family escape, the beauty of choosing the perfect property ensures that everyone’s desires will be catered to. In this space, luxury is defined as a bespoke experience where kids, parents and grandparents’ differing expectations are all fulfilled. As time flits quickly by, the quality moments spent bonding are simply priceless, especially set against a thoughtful and stunning environment. Whether immersing young explorers in Kids Clubs, taking advantage of babysitting services as you pamper at the Spa, or preparing a special feast under the stars, we have come up with the best places to stay. Childhood is fleeting and joy is doubled when shared, so witness your children in bloom as they romp raucously to their heart’s delight.

Destinations Worth the Wait: Journeying Towards Unforgettable Adventures

There are certain destinations on our precious planet whose names evoke an immediate sense of wonder and intrigue. Wild places that perhaps you have yearned to visit but couldn’t commit to, as they were deemed too far, too complicated, or too arduous. While they may take slightly longer to journey to, our travelling spirits are awakened once you finally arrive, and will be rewarded by a distinctive, palpable beauty that is found nowhere else in the world. Their reputations are known as the last safe havens with vast terrain that is largely untouched, whose natural environment is fiercely protected by its people. So when someone asks where you’re planning to travel next, just choose one of the most exceptional places below and watch their faces light up with awe and envy

Galapagos Evolution's Playground

Follow in the footsteps of Charles Darwin and broaden your mind as you tick off the 56 (!) native bird species that are endemic to the Galapagos, such as the finches and flightless cormorants. Snorkel alongside marine iguanas and sea lions, spot bottle-nosed dolphins racing alongside your boat, and meet the Galapagos penguins, one of the smallest in the world. There are a range of itineraries that cater to naturalists, active adventurers, or geologists. On Silversea, Silver Origin expedition, stay in Oceanview suites with teak verandas, indulge in fine dining, and learn from expert guides when ‘uncovering the secrets of this unique living museum.

Greenland The Arctic's Untamed Beauty

With the second-largest ice sheet in the world after Antarctica, the lowest population density with just 56,661 people, the purest air and water in the world, more boats than cars, and Sled dogs largely used as transportation during the winter, Greenland is a fantastic treat for those who make the journey. Arriving by boat through the Ilulissat Icefiord and perched on the edge of the cliffs, staying in a bungalow at Ilimanaq Lodge is a genuine insight into life on a Greenlandic settlement, just 300 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. Only open from mid-June to mid-September, sustainability is taken very seriously here, the pace of life slows down significantly, and the midnight sun is worshipped when you live this far North.

Namibia Land of Contrasts & Wonders

For silence and solitude seekers, Namibia will exceed your expectations and enrich your perception of true wilderness. Boasting desert landscapes visually similar to Mars, with free roaming wildlife that thrives in wild areas, the breathtaking splendour of this land must be seen to be believed. Soar above the endless landscapes by helicopter or hot-air balloon, traverse rocky outcrops and sip sundowners across the infinite horizon. In the depth of the secluded desert nights come stellar stargazing, so take advantage of andBeyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge’s state-of-the-art Celestron Telescope and surrender to the enormity of the universe from this tiny speck on where we stand. Staying in stone and glass suites with plunge pools, retractable skylights, a fireplace and a glass-encased rain shower, you’ll feel eons away from home.

Patagonia Where Nature's Majesty Unfolds

This remote region, shared by Southern Chile and Argentina, is visually spectacular and highly protected, with over 2500 plant species and 500 animals awaiting your discovery. The undeniable power of ice and wind has shaped this environment, a place where you feel the enormity of the elements. Staying in one of 14 spacious stand-alone villas at Awasi Patagonia, the interiors are rustic and refined, filled with natural light, and blessed with direct views to the enigmatic Torres del Paine. Everything is privatised to your liking, so whether you feel like horse-riding, puma or condor tracking, dining at a magnificent viewpoint or trekking to your heart’s delight – the enlightened days spent here will be unforgettable

Bhutan Tradition Meets Tranquillity

Renowned for the country’s pursuit of wellbeing and happiness, Bhutan has beautifully retained its cultural heritage which you’ll witness in their grandiose dzongs, otherworldly festivals, and intricate weaving artisans. Travelling through this country is a soulful and scenic delight, which harkens back to a simpler time without the escalation of technology or globalisation. Alas, nothing is sacred, so we advise arriving soon to see this unspoilt beauty firsthand. Six Senses Paro Lodge sits atop the valley with stunning mountain views, dining amongst stone ruins, and at walking distance to Samtenling Monastery to light butter lamps for blessings. Just wait till you see their pool and sauna

Rwanda Land of a Thousand Hills

The prospect of encountering majestic mountain gorillas up close and personal is reason enough to visit Volcanoes National Park. Offering a glimpse into their strong family bonds, personalities and behaviours, this is a transformative opportunity that will no doubt alter your connection to our relatives. One&Only Gorilla’s Nest has a coveted position tucked within the rainforest, where you’ll nest in immersive treehouses amidst a thriving ecosystem of fragrant roses and towering eucalyptus trees. Learn from Francois Bigirimana the Gorilla Whisperer, who has followed these families since 1982!

Travelling in Twos: The Magic of Matching Destinations

Connect the dots and maximise your travels by choosing regions that perfectly complement each other on the road. Whether balancing contrasting destinations that blend island life with the urban hustle, or landing at neighbouring wild jungles that awaken your natural self, there is no harm in being greedy and elongating your visit with the power of two. We have curated the best properties to serve as a base for exploration, each inspiring in their attention to detail and design. Allow yourself the pleasures of observation as you find similarities and differences between these duos on the beautiful journey ahead.

Vivacious Vietnam matched with Tantalising Thailand

Staying at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay and Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle

Not far from Nha Trang, Six Senses Ninh Van Bay has perfected the art of barefoot luxury in their hidden enclave. Along the pristine coast, take time out to cruise along the shoreline, island hop to fishing villages, rejuvenate on a yogic retreat, watch the days go by from your hilltop, beach or rock pool villa, or choose from the many outdoor activities that take advantage of this protected bay. Nourish your body at their healthy dining options, and to celebrate a day well spent at dusk, enjoy drinks and shisha by the jetty.

From coast to jungle, get completely off-the-grid, learn all about elephants and lose yourself to the rhythm of the most enviable location at Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle. Spoil yourself with friends and family at the Explorer Lodge’s spacious pool deck that is immersed in a lush environment of bamboo and birdsong

Pure New Zealand matched with Phenomenal Fiji

Staying at Eagles Nest and COMO Laucala Island

For somewhere truly off the beaten track, the pristine landscapes of New Zealand – and in particular the Bay of Islands – will exceed expectations. With just five contemporary villas fit for royalty that include luxury fittings from private jacuzzis to a home theatre system, Eagles Nest accounts for all your needs with resident chefs, personal trainers, and spa therapists to get you looking and feeling your best.

Sink into azure Melanesian waters and let your troubles wash away by escaping to COMO Laucala Island in the South Pacific. Take part in COMO’s farm-to-table philosophy as you nourish your body, go sailing, mangrove kayaking or horse-riding to maximise outdoor experiences, and perch at spacious family or friends Residences with spectacular views plucked out of a postcard.

Dynamic Hong Kong matched with Adventurous Australia

Staying at The Upper House and Silky Oaks Lodge

Hong Kong’s energetic pulse is unlike any other metropolis; a natural playground disguised as a financial hub, where vertical skyscrapers contend with mountains and gastronomes or oenophiles relish every meal. The Upper House is a masterclass of cool and an oasis of calm, central to everything and prioritising Wellness during your urban stay.

Over to Queensland on Australia’s Northeast Coast, where Silky Oaks Lodge is the perfect jumping off point to the most stunning natural attractions: Daintree Rainforest, Mossman Gorge, the Great Barrier Reef and Cape Tribulation. Bask in integrative treehouses that bring the outside in, renew your body at Healing Waters Spa and feel part of this ancient ecosystem.

Bustling Singapore matched with Bountiful Bali

Staying at The Singapore EDITION and Capella Ubud

Singapore has something for everyone, a foodie and cultural hub that welcomes families with open arms as one of the cleanest and safest nations in the world. The Singapore EDITION is an oasis of cool with lush dining spaces, the enchanting Punch Room for cocktails and trendy The Roof from day to night.

Find yourself on Bali less than 3 hours by flight, and continue with your spiritual and jungle immersion in the cultural heart of Ubud’s central foothills. Visit its rice terraces and dramatic waterfalls, appreciate the silver craftsmanship and holistic healers, and stay at Bill-Bensley designed tents at Capella Ubud which harken back to the time of European settlers from the 1800’s.

Mountainous Laos matched with Soulful Cambodia

Staying at Rosewood Luang Prabang and Amansara

Laos is still a relatively sleepy counterpart of its Southeast Asian neighbours, so arriving here has the delightful effect of stepping back in time as monks receive alms offering at dawn. Inspired by ancient temples and an explorer spirit, take in Rosewood Luang Prabang‘s French-Lao architecture from the comfort of a contemporary waterfall pool villa or hilltop tent.

Revel in the serenity of iconic Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, known as ‘City of Temples’ for its unique Khmer architecture, carved apsaras and artistic significance. At Amansara, rest within a transformed masterpiece that was once a residence for guests of King Sihanouk, and enjoy a private tour with the National Museum curator Dr. Ven Sophorn for a deeper insight into the Golden Era of the Khmer Kingdom.

Your World, Your Trip, Your Sustainable Choice

Oasyhotel, Italy

Oasyhotel’s first property based around values of environmental sustainability is in Tuscany, at the heart of the Dynamo Oasis Nature Reserve, a World Wildlife Fund-affiliated park that’s left its dark hunting past way behind. It’s the blueprint for several more with its wooded hillsides teeming with wildlife, including deer and wolves, and pristine flora and fauna. The spacious lodges, though, are ultra-luxurious. There are two haute-cuisine restaurants as well as relaxation and wellness centres, and a private lake. It’s simple yet sophisticated. And a model of social responsibility.

Crafted entirely from native lenga wood, with a living roof, it sits on the shores of Lake Sarmiento overlooking the iconic Paine Massif; entire walls of glass bring the outside in. Every day, local guides lead small-group adventures for hiking, kayaking, mountain-biking or horse-riding through pine forests, as condors soar above in blue skies. The sound of silence has to be heard to be believed! Then it’s home for a contemporary Patagonian dinner, great wine, and a soak in some enormous bathtubs.

The resort’s 25 sea-facing residences have traditional thatched roofs, and all five restaurants feature healthy COMO Shambhala options, reflected in the island’s own cattle and poultry farm, hydroponics, herb garden and fruit orchards.

Education, employment opportunities, wildlife conservation and sustainable practices are all part of the ethos, aiming to fulfil United Nations’ Sustainability Development Goals by 2030. Modular construction minimised impact; single-use plastic is banned and waste is recycled; and events proceeds are funnelled into reforestation. You’ll love the tranquillity as much as the attentive hospitality.

 

1 Hotel Central Park, New York

Sustainable responsibility… in the city that never sleeps? Really? Look no further than this Central Park location for the Big Apple that’s gone organic! Like all 1Hotel establishments, this one has been carbon-neutral since 2018, and is also 100% certified by the Leadership In Environmental Energy & Design scheme for building standards. The building is covered in 36,000, oxygen-giving ivy plants. The hotel supports charities and staff development. Food and menus are planned with sustainability foremost, with as much local, seasonal and fresh ingredients as possible. And they have a war on waste. Plus, as we say, like – hello, this is Manhattan!

Svart, Norway

Here is the world’s first energy-positive off-grid destination dedicated to the protection of nature and preserving the raw, pristine polar region… while offering activities in breath-taking surroundings. Its Green Framework is self-sufficient in electricity, water and waste management, with a farm-to-table ethos for food, but the service is always exceptional. In 2024 a Six Senses hotel will open where you’ll be staying in a fully carbon-neutral and emissions-free hotel, offsetting each guest journey using cutting edge technology via Net Zero Labs and we look forward to sharing the latest news of this exciting new property with you very soon.

Planet Earth, forever our Muse

“Nature does not hurry yet everything is accomplished.” —Lao Tzu

Close your eyes and cast your mind back to a transformative moment during your travels; finally arriving at a natural place, encountering a wild creature, gazing across a stunning landscape that rendered you speechless … and relive the sensation that reinforced the awestruck wonder. Recognising these unique moments are the cornerstone of our humanity, for the more passionate and interdependent we feel towards our planet, the more driven we are to nurture and protect it from harm. By harnessing the power of good people, conscious action, honest travel and positive change, the sum of these values strengthens our human evolution. We simply cannot whittle down our respect for the Earth to one day – she must be celebrated and nourished daily.

Here, we shine a spotlight on inspiring luxury hotel brands who go above and beyond to tread lightly and demonstrate a sustainable impact, sharing a focus on one of many key initiatives.

Soneva

Read through the A-Z’s of Soneva’s Sustainability list, and it’s clear they put their money where their mouth is. With their uniquely Biophilic design – “meaning a deep love and craving for nature, [while] reaping the rewards of being immersed in the wilderness.” – and ongoing restoration projects, this is one brand to watch.

Soneva Jani has perfected ‘castaway chic’ in the Maldives, and with access to some of the most pristine waters in the Noonu Atoll, their Marine Biologists play an active role in marine conservation efforts. Join the Marine Conservation Expedition to work alongside them, where guests take part in a beach cleanup to help gather vital data through conducting micro-plastic and coral bleaching surveys.

Virtuoso travelers receive:

Six Senses

 

Since its inception in 1995, Six Senses has built a brand reputation that is synonymous with barefoot luxury, a zero waste philosophy, digital detoxing and always plucking from its own organic gardens. Earth Lab displays their consumption data as well as communicating work around marine conservation, forestry or farming initiatives, and harnessing renewable energy from solar or biomass.

Six Senses Ibiza fights plastic pollution by supporting Pachamama Beach through micro-plastic beach cleanups on land, and iBi Foundation, who runs a solar-powered catamaran dedicated to the same cause at sea. Using an integrated collecting net to retrieve plastics floating on the surface of the ocean, in 2022, 1.552 kilograms of plastic was removed from the coast!

1 Hotels

 

With all properties LEED Certified, advocating huge carbon offsets, and donations that have exceeded half a million dollars towards their charitable partners, 1 Hotels harmonises with the natural environment while tracking their progress through energy-tracking smart technology.

Shinta Mani

Inspired to give back to the Khmer people of Cambodia, Shinta Mani Foundation which ‘Opens Doors, Opens Hearts,’ has shared a large percentage of their revenue to important wildlife and community initiatives. While some hotels pay lip service to community and environmental support, they go the extra mile by digging water wells, building school infrastructure, donating study materials and supplying food parcels.

With the Wildlife Alliance on their side, the figures speak for themselves. To share just a few of their successes, they have removed 14777 snares and 1999 bird nets, confiscated 10786 M2 of illegal wood and 685 chainsaws, and released 97 turtles and 1 sun bear. There is a commitment towards permanently ending poaching and logging in the Cardamom rainforest, as well as reintroducing wild tigers into the ecosystem.
