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
Venice Simplon-Orient Express
A true bucket-list experience… romantic and nostalgic; outstanding attention-to-detail every step of the way; a veritable onslaught of gastronomy; lavish silver service; and of course gorgeous, ever-changing scenery. Food and drink is consistently-excellent and bountiful, particularly dinner which is spread over five set courses. Beautifully presented dishes are made from fresh local ingredients picked up at various stops along the line, and it’s all wrapped up with a truly- wonderful on-board atmosphere.
The Beachhouse at Chatham Bars Inn, Cape Cod, USA
If you’re looking for the most fantastic classic New England clam bake, then look no further than this relaxed beachside restaurant overlooking the beach and the sailing boats in Chatham Harbour.
Most Heavenly Hotel Rooms
Pool Casita Suite - One&Only Palmilla, Mexico
Even the standard oceanfront rooms here are pretty spacious, but if your budget allows then I’d definitely recommend a Spanish, hacienda-style Pool Casita Suite, which comes with a private plunge pool just steps away from the beach – perfect if you like snoozing to the sound of the ocean.
Rahimoana Villa – Eagles Nest, Russell, New Zealand
This super-sleek, ultra-modern four-bedroom villa sitting atop its own private 44-acre headland has to be home to one of the world’s best views. Drenched in sun from morning to night, this iconic, one of a kind masterpiece enjoys 360-degree panoramic views of New Zealand’s famed Bay of Islands, over a mile of beach and ocean frontage, a 25-metre infinity pool overlooking your own private beach, a helipad, and acres of pristine private land and native bush. Simply stunning, absolutely beautiful inside and out and a true once-in-a-lifetime experience.
