Sometimes you simply want to get away from it all on a luxury, exclusive escape. Leave behind modern life, with all its responsibilities, demands and deadlines, and take each day at a tranquil, stress-free pace. A great escape is entirely possible, over Yonder. You could be cut off from the world on the flawless beaches of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, one of the world’s most far-flung paradises, the opaque, emerald waters sheltered by teeming reefs.
Or you could retreat to the simple pleasures of Inle Lake in Myanmar. Arriving at the vast tranquility of Inle feels as if you have escaped to a world altogether more serene. You’re surrounded by marshes and floating gardens, villages built on stilts and Buddhist temples rising from the water.
Elsewhere in Burma, when it comes to great escapes, Ngapali is often criminally overlooked by travellers but, hey, who’s complaining. You get get all the more space to enjoy the 3km arc of fine white sand lapped by the tranquil waters the Bay of Bengal, complete with glorious sunsets and superb seafood.
Looking closer to home for your luxury escapes, you might just like to jump into a classic Italian sports car and hit the winding roads of Italy’s Amalfi coast, or sail off Yonder around the thousand islands of Croatia…
