Ahh, the Holidays! It’s almost that time of year, and the planning has begun.

Many of us choose to spend the holidays away from our normal, everyday lives and gift ourselves, or others time away together.

Just as everyone spends the holiday season differently, we at TierOne Travel, believe in providing unique vacations that suite your individual desires. If luxury is your thing, this is your blog post.

We have compiled four completely different ways to spend the holidays. Each option includes a heavy luxurious component, to ensure that your holidays are filled with the finest magic.

Four destinations for a luxurious holiday season

Namibia, Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp

If you’re looking for a unique holiday season away from the hustle and bustle of city life and into the most surreal natural environment on the planet, Skeleton Coast needs to be on your list.

On the Northwest Coast of Namibia lays the stunningly beautiful Skeleton Coast. Filled with skeletons, shipwrecks, sand-dunes, and wildlife. This stark desert gives life to many fascinating stories and a variety of wildlife including elephants, giraffes, hyenas, and lions, to name a few.

If you’re looking for pure luxury in this remote location, book into the Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp. Although it’s called a camp and the rooms are tents, I assure you it’s far from camping.

Inclusive rates include extreme comfort in a unique setting, plus access to the never-ending grounds.

It’s hard to describe the extraordinary environment of the Skeleton Coast, it’s truly unlike any other place on earth and will leave you feeling a sense of awe like the holiday season hasn’t done before.

Maldives, LUX* South Ari Atoll

If for you, the holiday season is about giving thanks, then there is no better place to do that then the Maldives.

Contemplate the season in an overwater bungalow staring at the rich turquoise waters, or spend your days floating by some of the world’s most beautiful coral gardens.

The Maldives is known for its impressive scuba diving, snorkeling, white sandy beaches, wellness offerings and fresh culinary delights.

The name at LUX* South Ari Atoll gives you a good idea of the vibe of the property – pure luxury at its finest. Choose from a variety of overwater bungalows that make you feel as if you have your own private remote island.

The best part about this property is that the world is literally at your fingertips. The resort is all-inclusive and truly stands by their offering to include everything. You have nothing to worry about and can leave the credit card in your bag for the duration of the trip.

In the Maldives, you get to embrace you most peaceful, grateful, holiday self.

Norway, Lyngen Lodge

If you’re looking for a winter wonderland this holiday season, Norway is it. In a white, velvet blanket of snow, you will find stunning scenery that lasts 24hrs of the day.

Norway has a lot to offer, from big city thrills to remote wilderness wonder. We think that where the Alps meet the fjords is true magic and the exact location of the luxurious Lyngen Lodge.

Explore the beautiful scenery by foot or by snowmobile, cozy up next to the wood burning fire, and get ready for the evening spectacle of Northern Lights.

Here is one of the cleanest places on earth to watch the Northern Lights, and from your room, in Lyngen Lodge you can soak them up from your private outdoor hot tub.

An escape to the enchanting North may become a holiday tradition quickly.

New York, The Mark

Holiday spirit pours out of New York in December.

Ice skating in Central Park, Washington Square Christmas tree, Rockefeller Christmas tree, Nutcracker at Lincoln Center, the lights of Times Square and of course, sales and shopping everywhere. The city is cold, snowy and alive.

If you like the buzz and energy of the holiday season, New York will provide it.

In the centre of it all is The Mark. A luxurious, five-star hotel that is known for its exclusive experience. Within the hotel Chef Jean-George prepares the restaurant for one of the most highly rated Christmas dinners in the city.

Be in the middle of it all and experience the cities finest luxury at its most famed time of year.
