Sri Lanka joins the world elite of wellness holiday destinations with the exceptional mountain hideaway of Santani, a place where your mind and body will be cleansed of impurities, and anything jarring is banished.
There’s no roughing it at Tswalu, where the accommodation and hospitality is restful and delicious. Just a few metres away, though, is a natural wonderland just waiting to excite and enchant.
This is new – and there’s nothing else quite like it: luxury sleeper train travel comes to South America for the very first time; the unfolding Peruvian vista is absolutely breath-taking, and the sumptuous accommodation and attentive service aboard is, we think, a global standard-setter.
Ahhh, getting away from it all – there’s nothing like it. Or so we thought. The super-luxury and soul-soothing silence at Amangiri at Canyon Point, Utah, USA is one thing, but getting out there in its 600 acres of rugged vastness is an experience like no other.

Fregate Island is a stunningly beautiful paradise that’s completely private, with little more than a dozen, sumptuous villas. But you should take your binoculars as well as your sunglasses when you go because its wildlife – free-roaming Aldabra giant tortoises, sea turtles and a plethora of rare and exotic birds, is as wondrous as its peaceful seclusion and turquoise seas.
