If you are looking for an amazing travel experience for the remainder of 2017, try one of these unique and incredible experiences from around the world.
At Luxury Travel Diary we love to do something different, unusual and fun. I can’t think of anything that ticks these boxes more than the French bubble hotel. Imagine sleeping in a transparent bubble in the isolated countryside just outside Marseilles. Yes, at night you can watch the stars as if you are sleeping in a swag bag, but you are equally protected by a glorious and crucially water and wind proof bubble!
Operated by a family team that aim to bring their guests closer to nature, this innovative plastic bubble is filled with stylish modern furnishings. You will be stepping back to nature, you will be able to enjoy the vast canopy of stars, watch the moon and spot shooting stars. But in your bubble, you will be cosy and protected from the wild side of nature that is less appealing, like getting wet and cold!
This beautiful resort has only six bubbles, and for extra bubbles, enjoy the jacuzzi bath. Wake up to a dewey morning and a gorgeous breakfast cooked up by the family.. bliss.
We all know the line, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. But trips to Vegas do not have to be about partying untul dawn, there are a whole lot of luxury and awe inspiring experiences to take advantage of. In this experience you get picked up from your accommodation in a stretch limousine and transfer to luxury helicopter for a memorable flight above the most famous light show in the world. See the dancing fountains of the Bellagio, the exploding volcano at the Mirage, and circle the Stratosphere Tower, and many other Vegas landmarks.
Ideal for a special experience, this sunset tour of the Strip is truly unforgettable, See the city’s legendary lights beneath you, and the dark desert stretching out all around.
Affectionately known as “Yank Tanks”, the old American cars that are seen everywhere in Havana are a mark of Cuban ingenuity, kept running for years with engineering skill. Ride around in a chauffeur-driven convertible and see the unmissable sights such as the Plaza de la Revolucion, the Colon Cemetery and the Capitol Building and the Gran Teatro in comfort and style.
Your car will take the famous Malecon drive along the seafront through Havana’s historic quarter, past the suburbs of Miramar with its diplomatic buildings and embassies, and Russian-influenced Verdado, into the Centro to see the authentic Cuba. Finishes with a cocktail at the luxurious Hotel Nacional which has been visited by Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando and Ernest Hemingway. Sip your drink to amazing views across the city and harbour.
For something completely different in New Zealand, take advantage of a Maori Village experience. First, you are introduced to the village with a formal ritual, beginning with a series of intimidating haka challenges and a peace offering laid at the feet of your group’s leader. Then the Powhiri welcome dance invites you into the marae, as the haunting Karanga calls goes around the forest. Your peaceful intentions have been accepted – you may enter!
Exploring the village you’ll learn about the migration of Maori in canoes across the ocean; see warriors training with their weapons; watch weaving and ancient horticultural practices, and even experience the traditional Maori tattoo ceremony! The hangi meal, cooked underground with hot stones, follows. The experience ends with a magnificent ceremony at the Sacred Meeting House.
Who doesn’t dream of being 007? Well now you can.. almost. In this experience you will be whisked to Phang Nga Bay, famous as the location for Scaramanga’s hideaway in the 007 film “The Man with the Golden Gun”. With 100+ islands and the iconic limestone rocks spearing out of the water, the scenery is unforgettable. After taking in the reclining Buddha statue in the Suwankuha Temple, then you will climb aboard a long-tail boat and head out into the bay.
The boat will take you to James Bond Island and another called Koh Tapu, and may also stop at Khao Phing Kan, where souvenir stands and food stalls are found in tiny caves.
Thalu Island, with its stalactites and limestone cliffs is breathtaking, or you can just relax on the beach. Finally, visit the floating village of Panyee. Built by an Indonesian fishing community, you can be sure of some excellent seafood in the restaurants before ending your day at the beautiful Raman Waterfall National Park, where you can take your time swimming, sunbathing and sightseeing before the boat ride home.
