Now that the world is opening again and emerging from Covid, one thing has become clear- it's time for the bucket-list vacation! After a year and a half of cancelled plans, travelers are anxious to fulfill their biggest, over-the-top travel dreams. Even in the middle of a pandemic, the hospitality industry never stopped creating, and as a result, there is so much opportunity to see something new in your dream destination. We'd like to invite you to plan your 2022 travel and consider the following bucket list trips.
Napa Valley, California
Napa is a once-in-a-lifetime trip, but also a destination you'll want to return to again and again. After struggling through the pandemic and a heartbreaking string of wildfires, Napa has rebuilt its hotels, restaurants, and wineries, and now they are better than ever. A great place to start your Napa vacation is in Calistoga, California. Calistoga is known for an eclectic mix of off-the-beaten-path wineries and Michelin-starred restaurants. We recommend Solage Calistoga, which just completed an elaborate renovation. It now has new multi-room suites, a brand new restaurant, Picobar, and a gorgeous redesigned pool area. Another great property is the new Four Seasons Napa Valley, where you can wine and dine in luxury.
Loire Valley, France
An hour-long train ride can whisk you out of Paris to the northern edge of
Pays de la Loire, where you'll find a château that was once owned by an actual baron and baroness. Hotel Chateau du Grand Luce opened to the public in 2019, but the property dates back to 1760 and is filled with statues given to the estate of Louis XV. Nothing says bucket list quite like staying in an actual French chateau that formally housed royalty. With a stay in this chateau, you can enjoy biking, picnicing in the flower-filled Jardin Exotique, and exploring the quaint surrounding town of Grand Lucé.
Sardinia is one of the most coveted beach destinations in Italy. Visitors love its beautiful white sand beaches, the glistening turquoise waters, and the amazing luxury resorts. You will love the brand new Baglioni Resort Sardinia, set on a beautiful marine reserve near one of the island’s most beautiful beaches, Lu Impostu. White sand and sparkling sea make this a dream destination for diving into Sardinia’s breathtaking natural world.
Turks and Caicos
If you love white-sand beaches stretching as far as your eye can see, Turks and Caicos will be your dream destination. From the idyllic shores of Grace Bay to the private islands, like Parrot Cay, Turks and Caicos offers some of the most lavish experiences in the Caribbean. One of the best choices you can make is The Ritz Carlton, Turks and Caicos. This newly opened property has ocean view suites, club level perks, two pools, and a spa.
Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience of Sedona and enjoy the natural beauty of the red rocks, undiscovered hiking trails, and the legendary energy vortexes. For a luxury experience, stay at the magnifent Ambiente, A Landscape Hotel, where each of the free standing atrium suites offer panoramic views of the red rocks and a private rooftop with a fire pit.
