10 Trips on Our Holiday Wishlist 2020


This holiday book yourself a treat to a long wished destination that you have been dreaming of and enjoy the holidays in tranquility or with your loved ones.

  1. Backroads of Japan

Japan has the harmonious blend of both ancient history and modern architecture. The thousand-year-old Zen temples are dwarfed by brinies of skyscrapers; and neon signs are reflected in flooded rice paddies studded with green. On this trip, you’ll meticulously discover everything in between: Snow monkeys, geishas and the overflowing pedestrian scrambles of Tokyo’s Shibuya district.

  1. Costa Rica

A tour of Costa Rica offers a magnificent array of marvels and adventures with lush rain forests, primeval beaches, and a superfluity of wildlife like sea turtles and howler monkeys. Your Costa Rica vacation might include adventures like whitewater rafting, a rainforest canopy tour, relaxing at the beach, or exploring the rainforest from one of Costa Rica's ecologies. Vacation points include Manuel Antonio National Park, Tortuguero, Monteverde cloud forest and Arenal Volcano. Costa Rica is long known for adventure travel.

  1. The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur

If you wish to visit some place that’s new, this Four-Star stay should fit the bill. A convenient home base for exploring Malaysia’s capital—Kuala Lumpur, the stay at this state puts you within arm’s reach of some top attractions like Perdana Botanical Garden, the National Museum and the striking Petronas Twin Towers. Just outside downtown, The St. Regis offers a serene break between adventures with its extra-large accommodations (starting at 678 square feet), a lake-view spa and an impressive contemporary art collection — be sure to snap a selfie or two with Fernando Botero’s unmissable giant horse sculpture.

  1. AYANA Resort and Spa, BALI

Experience Bali’s treasured beaches, remarkable sunsets and rich culture in high style when you add this Four-Star Jimbaran Bay hideaway to your holiday list.

While you may feel like you’re on the edge of the world at this secluded 222-acre resort (no other hotels are visible from the picturesque grounds), you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to leisurely pursuits. Cooking classes and cultural trips, shopping in Seminyak, browsing the fish markets of Jimbaran—all of these are popular, but an afternoon at the ultra-exclusive Spa on the Rocks is a must. No matter how you fill your days, be sure to toast the evening’s sun-streaked skies at the resort’s Rocks Bar.

  1. Galápagos: West, Central & East Islands

Situated 965km (600 mi) off the coast of Ecuador, this isolated harbor of biodiversity remains nature’s greatest science laboratory, home to a astounding array of birds, reptiles, fish, and mammals that you won’t find elsewhere. Snorkel in with the sea lions, discover the unusual widespread marine life in private bays, and hike Sierra Negra, the largest balsatic caldera in the region. You'll head home with a new perspective. While there’s no bad time to visit, the holiday season marks the start of the mating seasons for many animals in Galapágos, making it a perfect stage for wildlife encounters.

  1. Crown Towers—Melbourne

Summer runs through February in Australia, and this lavish Five-Star getaway provides plenty of ways to take advantage of Melbourne’s mild (mid-70 degrees Fahrenheit) weather during that span. You may hop in a helicopter for a Yarra Valley wine-tasting adventure, hit the links with your crew at nearby Capital Golf Club or dine on seasonally inspired Italian cuisine on the terrace at Rosetta. Once you’re done, soak in your luxurious tub — marble walls, crystal chandeliers and TVs make these bathrooms a treat.

  1. Antarctica Classic

Antarctica’s otherworldliness appeals to the adventurous souls who come here. Its colder windier and drier that elsewhere in the world. This is a great place of adventure and visual glory. When you pass by the huge icebergs in the flat calm of a polar morning, the view is capable of blowing your mind away. Encounter huge whales, enormous crowds of penguins, and stunning landscapes few people have ever witnessed. You might get into the reggae pace of life on sunny Caribbean beaches.
