Almost every country in the world offers tourists the option to enjoy a luxurious vacation. But, not every country is top of its game. It takes a bit of finesse and style to deliver luxury, and only a few places in the world can do it gracefully. So for a real luxury experience during your holidays, you must visit these places. With that in mind, let us explore three must-visit luxury holiday destinations for 2022.

#1 The Maldives

Nature blessed the Maldives with some of the most spectacular natural sceneries on earth. This cluster of islands floating on the Indian Ocean is home to some of the finest white-sand beaches and blue lagoons with palms swaying over them.

The Maldives is the ultimate blend of luxury and nature. It has five-star resorts with scenic views of the ocean, mouth-watering food, exciting activities, and much more. Ideally, you would want to go to the Maldives for your honeymoon, but a trip with your friends or family members can also be very enjoyable here. 

An all-inclusive luxury vacation in the Maldives can cost you well over $9,000 per person. You can bring the average cost to under $7,000 if you are going as a couple or in a group. 

November to April is the best time to visit the Maldives if you want to avoid the crowd. You can expect the weather during this time to be dry, with plenty of sunshine and blue skies. This time of the year is also enjoyable after sunset. As long as the night weather is calm and breezy, you will have a great experience walking across the beaches.

#2 Scotland

Start your Scotland tour by visiting Edinburgh first to witness its medieval and Georgian architecture. After that, explore Balmoral where you can enjoy some luxury pampering at a Rocco Forte Hotel. Their 5-star service is worth the money, and their Michelin-starred dining is one of the best there is.

Spending $200 to $300 per day will be good enough for a luxurious vacation in Scotland. However, Scotland is known for its rainy and cloudy weather, so you do need to keep an eye on the forecast while planning your visit. 

You should also keep yourself updated on accurate weather forecasts using real-time data-driven weather apps during your visit. We found the forecasts for the weather by Tomorrow.io quite reliable. During your trips, you can check the Tomorrow weather app for all sorts of weather predictions. You can also check the AQI and pollen index at your destination on the app. That makes it a perfect app to have on your phone as you travel the world. 

In case you want to play things safe, just visit during March and May. That is when the weather is all warm and nice. You can also visit from September to November during Scotland’s autumn season.

While in Scotland, you will get to enjoy some beautiful scenery in the Highlands, and marvel at the amazing architecture of the country’s 1,500+ castles. However, if you want to break the bank, You can always take a helicopter ride down the country’s western coast. 

#3 Thailand

People often say that Thailand is the ultimate destination for backpackers and economy tourists. And while that is true, do not let them fool you into thinking that Thailand has no room for luxury.

Thailand has a lot to offer when it comes to luxury travel. Phuket, Krabi, and Koh Samui are the country’s most happening tropical islands. There, you will find a variety of luxury resorts to stay in. Not to mention, all these places are located deep within the country’s scenic environments. So while you will be living the five-star life, you will also get the best scenes Mother Nature has to offer in this part of Asia. 

While in Thailand, do not forget to feast on the local dishes. Tom yum Goong, pad thai, Khao pad, and Tom Kha Kai, are some of the most popular must-try local delicacies of Thailand.

$200 to $400 is more than enough to spend per day in Thailand if you are looking to enjoy a luxurious stay over there. Food will cost you around $50 per day, and rest for accommodation and travel expenses.

So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags, get your passports ready, and head out when you can. These fascinating luxury holiday destinations await your arrival.
