With Summer nearly upon us, it's time to think about where to go for that all important Summer break. Here are some of the finest, most luxurious trips this year.
If your Summer plans take you over to Europe, then you have to make a stop at the Amanzoe. Known for their amazing white beaches, Amanzoe beats them all thanks to their private beach, surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters, finished off with an idyllic beach bar for some fine Greek food. But if beaches aren't your thing, fret not as the Amanzoe has not one, but four swimming pools all with pergolas and sun loungers to while away the day on. While the spa and many dining options on site are perfect for anyone wanting to take it easy, there's also a watersports centre for windsurfing, kayaking and surfing for those looking for something a bit more active from their days.
If you are headed State side this Summer then one place you won't want to miss is the Montage Beverly Hills. At this Preferred Hotels & Resorts backed luxury hotel, you can get pampered like a star with the in-house Rolls Royce, available to all guests, the dining menu at one of the hotel's restaurants prepared by none other than Chopped judge, Geoffrey Zakarian and then there's the Turkish steam rooms, fitness centre, lush gardens and then celeb haunt, Kim Vo salon.
If it seems like everyone has been going to Croatia for the past couple of years, it's because they really have been. With crystal clear waters, fabulous food and a relaxed, welcoming culture, Croatia is the latest buzz word in luxury travel. And if you wanted to experience the very best of what this fair country has to offer this Summer, why not take a trip to an 18th Century bishops house turned luxury hotel, Lesic Dimitri Palace. Everything you imagine a luxury resort in Croatia will be, this quiet, serene and stunning boutique hotel has all the mod-cons including Nespresso machines, DVD players and even a spa, while still feeling very much like a traditional Croatian residence. When it comes to dining, there's a marvellous medley on fresh seafood on your doorstep, or take the hotel's private boat out to a neighbouring island for a meal you are sure never to forget.
If your Summer plans include more getting away from it all then Preferred Hotels & Resorts have got a real treat in store with The Lodge & Spa At Bush Creek Lodge. Nestled on a 30,000 acre working ranch in Wyoming, the lodge is considered one of the finest resorts in America. Featuring rolling hills, stunning river valleys, lush forests and majestic rock formations, guests can book private two-, three- and four-bedroom log cabin residences with stunning views of the Rocky Mountain wilderness. To help you wind down after a long day trekking, horse riding or indulging in some yoga, the choice of five restaurants, including a camp side pit, will prove to be the perfect end to a busy day.
