Whether it’s the wildlife, scenery, or people you remember most, Africa is out on its own for sheer scale, variety and dramatic impact. It’s an extraordinary place that will entice you back again and again, from the elegance and charm of Cape Town to the primal attractions of the Serengeti and the impossibly-perfect beaches lapped by the Indian Ocean.
Straddling the two Poles and encompassing myriad landscapes and cultures, The Americas offer an almost tireless treasure trove of experiences for travellers, from the remains of ancient civilizations in South America to the gleaming cities of Canada and the US, peppered amongst ever-changing landscapes which define majesty.
With its gleaming towers rising out of the desert, constantly sun-drenched beaches, world-beating designer shopping and fabulous hotels, the UAE serves up the very last word in urbane glamour, while Oman is a stylish and sophisticated choice for those looking to enjoy the very best Arabia has to offer.
How can you begin to sum up Asia? Mysterious, majestic, surprising, spiritual, energetic, enticing… it’s all those and more. A trip here is a true voyage of discovery, not least because its cultures and history have been hidden to Western eyes for too long, and with so much to explore, you’ll be back time and again.
Explore, cherish and fall in love with Australia, the world’s largest island; the epic countryside and adrenaline-junkie Eden of New Zealand, or the spectacularly laid-back islands of French Polynesia – which bring to life just how dreamy reality can get.
Hunker down by translucent shores and shady palms to breathe in jasmine and hibiscus and watch the hovering of miracle-winged hummingbirds. Why not explore the stunning tiny islands of the Caribbean?
From the sun-kissed Mediterranean to sophisticated cities, Europe’s diversity is without equal. Its converted castles, restored monasteries, refurbished palaces and rolling landscapes are all testimony to its fascinating history, whilst the gourmet cuisine, vintage wines and glamorous nightlife reflect the continent’s irrepressible joie de vivre.
Choose from idyllic islands adrift in the Indian Ocean, seducing you with overwater villas, underwater reefs, iridescent white sands, swaying sugar cane and cerulean oceans; or the magnificence of the Indian Subcontinent’s temples, Buddhist Kingdoms and beaches throughout Sri Lanka – all serving up a feast for senses as well as the soul.

Favourite Dining Experiences
The Ranch at Rock Creek, Montana, USA
All of the dining here is exquisite and plentiful, but the most memorable experience during my stay was after the rodeo, when all the cowboys and cowgirls joined the guests at the Blue Canteen and around the campfire for a fabulous barbeque prepared by the Executive Chef.
101 Dining Lounge and Marina, One&Only The Palm, Dubai
I absolutely love this place, particularly at sundown. It’s super-welcoming, the service is first-class, the tapas are as fresh as you can get… all in all it’s a chic, overwater experience with stunning views across The Palm and the Dubai skyline.
Most Heavenly Hotel Rooms
Private Granite Suites at Londolozi, South Africa
All accommodation at Londolozi is incredible, but the Private Granite Suites are in my mind Londolozi’s own private little hideout. Just three suites which can be booked individually or as a private camp for up to six guests, convey the raw essence of Africa with a contemporary, elegant flavour; and each seamlessly integrates with nature – their large doors and windows opening directly out onto the Sand River, and a private heated swimming pool.
Beachfront Pool Villa Suite at Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman
Their beachfront location means you can enjoy the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore as you relax in your infinity-edge pool, an ice-cold drink in hand.
Most Sublime Spa Experience
The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, New York
Its jaw-dropping city views, tranquil medative setting, and seductive spa treatments guaranteed to turn even hard-nosed Manhattanites into purring kittens with astonishing ease.
