Our last article discussed the importance of ensuring that your wealth will maximize the quality of life that you and your family share. In that spirit, why not take steps to gift yourself with the lifestyle you deserve? Here are a few luxurious wintertime destinations we’d like to recommend.
Lake Tahoe, California
Our first destination is one of the world’s most reputed locales for winter travel, and for good reason. Its natural beauty during the winter season is a sight to behold, and this is paired with some of the finest luxury winter resorts out there. The Ritz Carlton Lake Tahoe, for instance, is not only the perfect place for the avid skier; its comprehensive spa treatments, sophisticated yet cozy interiors, and impeccable service offer an uncompromisingly lavish experience.
St. Moritz, Switzerland
Any European winter getaway simply begs a visit to the famous town of St. Moritz. World class skiing, shopping, restaurants, and flawless champagne climate have earned it a sterling reputation among even the world’s most beloved celebrities. The Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains and the Carlton St. Moritz, featuring Michelin star-rated cuisine, incredible views, and ornate architecture, are just two of countless luxurious resorts to choose from.
Offering some of the most upscale and exclusive winter accommodations in the world, Niseko is the crown jewel of Japan’s ski resort towns. Ki Niseko Penthouse and Zaborin both provide gorgeous views and stunning modern interiors, with Zaborin’s private hot baths flowing directly from an underground hot spring. It’s The Vale Niseko, however, that boasts a perfect hillside location and has been named the best boutique ski hotel in the world more than once.
Canary Islands, Spain
For a warm-weather escape, the world-renowned Canary Islands can’t be ignored. From beautiful sandy beaches and sunny weather to irresistible gourmet food and volcanic mountain views, there’s a lot to explore even without considering the resorts on offer. The Royal Garden Villas in Tenerife, the Grand Hotel Residencia in Gran Canaria, and the family-friendly Princesa Yaiza Hotel in Lanzarote are all idyllic centerpieces for an upscale adventure.
Speaking of sunny locales perfect for winter travel, we’d be remiss not to recommend the Maldives. With flawless weather and crystal-clear turquoise waters, this is truly a remote-island experience wrapped in a luxurious package. Whether you opt for its award-winning water villas or a full-scale resort with unbeatable amenities and exquisite cuisine, it’s hard to go wrong when choosing accommodations, and many of the options are even family-friendly.
