Plan and survive incredible wedding, take amazing honeymoon. Or you could go for option two: Skip wedding and take awesome vacation anyway. You have quite a holiday checklist in store.
Estancia Colomé, Argentina
Drive through stunning mountain scenery to amazing remote vineyard, biodynamic farm, and hotel. Stare at lavender bending in the breeze, count more stars than you’ve ever seen, contemplate never leaving.
Xudum Okavango Delta Lodge, Botswana
Explore the surroundings by canoe or on bush walks. Befriend lions, elephants, hippos, and antelope on game drives in early morning or evening. Recover on rooftop lookout and in plunge pool at new safari resort.
Le Meurice, Paris
Debate why, whether it’s your first or 50th trip, it’s the most romantic town on earth. Hole up in your swank Louis XVI room. Emerge only for a decadent five-hour lunch at the three Michelin-star restaurant and a stroll through the Tuileries Garden.
Aqua Expeditions, Amazon
Ponder majesty of rain forest from your suite on the first luxury vessel to travel the Amazon. Learn about eco wonders on excursions, fishing trips, village tours, and jungle walks. A mere twelve rooms ensure it’s anything but a typical tacky cruise.
Dhara Dhevi, Chiang Mai
Live Northern Thailand at its beyond-belief best: opulent 14th-century wats, guided mountain treks, amazing authentic cuisine, morning serenades by the resident wood flautist. Venture into town for deals on some of the best designed home goods, clothes, and silver you’ve ever seen.
Petit St. Vincent, the Grenadines
Imagine this is your private island — the two miles of white sand beaches, the beautiful cottages and the sundecks, the discreet service (raise a yellow flag for attention). Splash through yet another day of snorkeling, kayaking, and backstroking in the sunshine.
