Everyone wishes they could be whisked away to an island paradise for a week or two, to just break away from the stresses of daily life. Whether the beach is your scene or not, no one can deny the healing combination of sun, sea, and sand, not to mention the rejuvenating effects of a deep tissue massage. Here are just a few luxurious vacation ideas worth saving for.
Forget the thrill of Orlando’s theme parks; Florida also provides stunning beach getaways for couples. Anyone looking to relax and rejuvenate can unwind at one of the many secluded beach spots in the state, including Key West, Sanibel Island, Cape Coral as well as popular tourist destinations such as St. Petersburg, St. Augustine and Miami. Whether you stay in cheap accommodation, or you check out Resorts and Lodges for a more luxurious place to stay, you’ll likely have a calming view of the coastline to create a serene vacation. You can choose to take part in a water activity, such as surfing, boogie boarding, or scuba diving, or book a sensual massage, but all you need is a long walk on the seafront to feel your troubles melting away.
Koh Samui, Thailand
Koh Samui is also known as the island of healing; there are a multitude of spas and retreats for visitors to relax, unwind and replenish their energy which has been sapped away by day to day living. The Anantara Spa, found in Chaweng Beach or Bophut, uses a special blend of oils in its spa treatments to promote healing and well-being in the body. Additionally, the Balance Wellness courses by Anantara offer holistic activities with Masters of Wellness to boost energy and restore peace of mind. Additionally, there are several yoga retreats to soothe aching muscles and calm busy minds.
St Martin/ St Maarten, Caribbean
There aren’t many people alive who don’t associate a Caribbean vacation with sun, fun, and relaxation. However, because this is a vacation that can get a bit pricey, you’ll want to be sure it’s worth the money. St Martin and St Maarten is one island with two distinct sides. French-controlled St. Martin on the north side is known for its beach parties, while Netherlands Antilles-governed St. Maarten on the southern rim is home to a variety of casinos and bars. Fortunately, both sides have some common ground; the food is delicious, the beaches are sublime, and the locals are welcoming. After one night of partaking in the Caribbean party, you’ll feel like a rejuvenated VIP.
Anyone looking for a luxurious beach holiday should always have Hawaii at the top of their list of places to visit. The temperature remains relatively steady throughout the year, the sun shines almost every day, and the cool breeze makes this a true island paradise. Whether you stay in cheap accommodation, or you choose to stay in a luxury resort, you’ll likely never be too far from one of Hawaii’s many beaches and lush scenery.
