Just for Two
Loggers Lodge, Swedish Lapland
Stunningly still at any time of the year, get lost with your love amidst Northern Lights, lush forests, or the endless midsummer sun, ensconced in an idyllic Swedish cabin in the woods. Disconnect from the demands of modern life, and let nature run its course through your veins as an exceptional itinerary is curated for enhanced romance. Head to the Arctic Circle where you’ll have authentic insight into Sami culture and reindeer herding. At The Spa, indulge in floor-to-ceiling sauna views or an outdoor hydrotherapy jacuzzi to immerse yourself fully.
Private Island Paradise
Elang Private Residence, Bawah Reserve
Takeover this paradisiacal island in the Bawah Reserve, and you’ll be blessed with total seclusion. Arriving by seaplane, you’ll be blown away by the native trees and pristine coral lagoons that are completely yours, as well as bespoke dining, private butlers, a Club House, saltwater infinity pool, and 6 Cliffside Lodges to accommodate your entire crew. The quality of furnishings and interiors are inspired by the natural surroundings, and most sea or land activities are available to you – just say the word and let your imagination run wild.
Travel in Style
Venice Simplon-Orient Express
Whether you’re seeking a one night hop or journeying from Istanbul to Paris on an incredible 5-night stint, there’s no doubt you’ll feel transported to another era from the moment you board this iconic train. Touting timeless glamour aboard its blue and gold carriages, embrace this opportunity to meet other well-heeled travellers. Every route promises exciting excursions, sumptuous meals, a dedicated steward service and continental breakfasts. The restoration alone is worth seeing firsthand, as are nights in ‘Bar Car 3674’ with a pianist serving classic tunes. Legendary indeed!
For the pioneering traveller who joins a group of 12 other polar enthusiasts, White Desert is the crème de la crème when setting foot on Antarctica. Flying by private jet from South Africa and staying at Whichaway camp’s luxury pods, choose to get up close and personal with the incredible Emperor Penguins, touch the South Pole, or take an Arctic Truck safari and summit a rugged peak that has hardly been touched by other humans! Expand your knowledge about the 7th continent in the most unforgettable manner and in the company of a passionate and experienced team.
