WHAT’S ‘HOT’ AT HOUSE OF TRAVEL SHIRLEY

LUXURY or UNIQUE??

These two words become a bit blurred in the world of travel and sometimes luxury destinations can be either unique or more

mainstream. It can be hard to determine what luxury means to you or what unique looks like.

After a bit of research and our own day by day experience with our House of Travel clients we’ve

come up with some words that may resonate with you or suit your travel needs…

Luxury is appreciating the “insider” access to castles, cathedrals, galleries, kitchens or homes in a

way that becomes personally meaningful.

Luxury is about exclusivity - having an experience to yourself or with some like- minded travellers.

Luxury is having a seamless, personal service giving an authentic, memorable experience.

Luxury is a great travel experience enjoyed in comfort and style.

Unique can mean distinctive, eccentric, quirky, unusual. All words that can also describe luxury travel.

Many of you reading this today may have travelled around our globe (many times!) and now looking

for something new and different and perhaps a bit luxurious. In our article today we’ve highlighted

a few destinations and products that really offer an experience that will offer you luxury but also a

sense of uniqueness as well.

We hope some of these may inspire you to pop in for a chat about your next adventure abroad.

Africa Safari and the Blue Train

Combine a holiday to this amazing continent by experiencing a three day, two night journey on

the Blue Train. Start in the south in Capetown and travel north to Pretoria via this luxury train. This rail

journey is an incomparable all-inclusive experience in unsurpassed luxury. Enjoy tantalising cuisine

and take in the stunning scenery along the way.

Finish up your trip with time spent in the Kruger National Park in one of the many luxury lodges. Most

lodges include all your meals, scheduled game drives, park fees and amazing luxurious surroundings

set in a stunning national environment. Some of our favourite lodges are: Kapama River Lodge, Sabi

Sabi Little Bush Camp or the Ulusaba Safari Lodge.

A holiday you will never forget enjoyed in luxurious natural surroundings.

South America, from the desert to the jungle

Spend some time in the Atacama Desert in Chile where you will enjoy sand dunes, volcanoes,

geysers, hot water springs and crusty salt lakes. Stay for a few days at the Tierra Atacama

Boutique Hotel & Spa which provides an extremely comfortable experience combining outdoor

adventure, fantastic hospitality and a heartfelt feeling of not wanting to leave.

Then perhaps head somewhere completely different – the Amazon Jungle. Here you could

spend a few days on a luxurious ARIA cruise for a few days where you will enjoy the superb

surroundings on your small ship and witness some of the best wildlife viewing, in an area that

shelters dozens of endangered species.

Finish your trip with a seven-night cruise around the magnificent Galapagos Islands which has

a haunting and unique beauty filled with multi-coloured forms of life including the albatross,

penguins, blue-footed booby, giant tortoises, iguanas and much more. You could enjoy your

time cruising around the islands onboard a Silverseas Expedition cruise, the Silver Galapagos.
