The definition of a luxury vacation varies considerably depending on the interviewee. However, there are hotels that should make everyone agree because they are the epitome of luxury. And they come with a price tag.
On Tripadvisor, Bicittini Posette wrote: “Perfection.
“It is the jewel of the Caribbean. A perfect paradise from every point of view. Great staff who go out of their way to make sure you are happy.
And Bruce C said, “It’s wonderful to be back in Jumby Bay. I look forward to this visit every year. Usually the worst part of the trip goes through the airport, but Jumby Bay customers are escorted via expedited service for Covid documentation review and passport control.
“We were done and got our bags back within half an hour of opening the plane door. Yet another reason to book a stay at this fabulous hotel!
DO NOT MISS
Next is Soneva Jani in the Maldives, at $ 6,130 (£ 4,530) per night.
There is also an all-inclusive plan, but it will cost more for vacationers.
The overwater resort has a dozen dining options and a wellness center with spa and yoga pavilion.
NetoDourado said: “Soneva is the place to go if you are looking to live a dream!
“Not only is it the most beautiful place on earth, but you will also be treated like a king! Come on, take off your shoes and enjoy the view! It’s spectacular!
In fourth place on the list was the private island of Kokomo Fiji, which costs $ 5,500 (£ 4,065) per night.
This isn’t the most luxurious option, as an island-wide buyout costs $ 65,000 (£ 48,000) per night and can accommodate up to 40 people.
Naturally, most vacationers chose to book just one of the 25 villas.
The price includes all meals (excluding alcoholic beverages), non-motorized water sports and a 45-minute spa treatment or one scuba diving excursion per adult per stay.
Johanna Sonneveldt said: “There are no words to describe how amazing this private island is.
“The airport lounge had everything we needed to relax while we waited for our seaplane to Kokomo. The seaplane ride was an experience in itself and the views were fantastic!
“The food at both restaurants was exceptional. The villa with our private pool was just perfect. We almost wanted to stay inside all day.
Rounding out the top five, the private island of Kudadoo Maldives at $ 5,400 (£ 3,990) per night.
With the motto “anything, anytime, anywhere”, a stay on this private island will be unforgettable.
The rate includes unlimited spa treatments, water sports, diving excursions and meals.
For the underwater restaurant and private yacht tours, this will be extra, as will private jet charters.
Lotus Dk said: “This resort is beyond amazing and words cannot describe it.”
