One of the hardest decisions to make when planning a trip is finding the right accommodation for your needs and preferences. For a long time, hotels have been the go-to option for travellers seeking out a luxurious stay. However as we transform into an increasingly digital world, new alternative accommodation for luxury travel has started to appear.
Be it Florence, Paris or London luxury accommodation, we’ll go through the top three options worth considering for whatever trip you’re planning next.
Glamping or luxury camping is an alternative to traditional hotels that’s gained popularity massively over the past decade. A stay in a luxury campsite offers all of the comforts of a hotel, with the added bonus of being entirely surrounded by nature. You can sleep in a spacious tent or cabin equipped with comfy beds and private bathrooms.
Luxury campsites also offer a range of activities, such as hiking, kayaking and fishing so you can get even closer to nature. What’s more, some campsites even have their own restaurants and bars, so you can enjoy a fancy meal or glass of wine under the stars.
If you want to experience the great outdoors without having to sacrifice any of the luxuries, pick glamping over a hotel stay.
- Serviced apartments
An increasingly sought-after alternative to hotels is serviced apartments, especially if you’re thinking of booking a longer stay. They offer all of the comforts you have at home with the added benefits of luxury hotel services such as housekeeping and concierge. Serviced apartments are fully furnished, with HD TVs, free Wi-Fi and washing machines, making them ideal for a super relaxing and stress-free stay.
Depending on where you stay, the serviced apartment you pick could come with luxury extras like a rooftop terrace, pool or gym. More and more travellers are opting for serviced apartments for the home-away-from-home experience with the added hotel luxuries.
- Private villas
If you’re looking to stretch out even further, a luxury villa may be the way to go. These properties offer a huge amount of space and comfort that a hotel room simply cannot offer. The choices are endless when choosing a villa as you can pick a specific area, with a specific view or amenities that are perfectly suited to the holiday you want.
Many private villas come with a private pool, hot tub, and ample outdoor space so you can enjoy the sunshine in complete privacy. If you’re staying with a big group, a private villa would be the perfect option.
Gone are the days when hotels seemed like one of the only fail-safe options for travelling in luxury. With so many different accommodation options available, there is no limit to your stay. Think outside of the box when you’re booking your next trip, it might be one of your best holidays yet.
