With most of the planet still in the grips of the pandemic, travel might be the last thing on your mind in 2021. We know vaccines may be a long way off for so many of us. Traveling for pleasure could be seen as foolish, at worst, downright risky.
One thing we do know, however, is that this situation isn’t forever. For some of us, escape could be a matter of weeks away. For others, it could be coming in the middle, or even the end, of the year.
Here are a few places to keep on your radar in 2021.
Firstly, we’d like to feature this gorgeous Tulum resort. AZULIK Uh May is a 42-villa jungle hotel. It features a contemporary art space as well as a residential space. Not a single tree was removed during construction of this resort, creating a hidden oasis. This is a perfect honeymoon getaway.
Next we have gorgeous Banff. A must see in Canada, Banff has a lot to offer. The most stunning hotel in Banff is the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel. It is the top-rated hotel here for a reason. The Fairmont hotel is like a castle, with the beautiful Canadian Rockies as a backdrop. It also features a huge complex with restaurants, conference hall, stores, and short trails. It is a perfect wedding venue, honeymoon vacation, and luxurious stay-cation resort. Additionally, their on-site restaurant is one of the finest in the area! A perfect secluded getaway for 2021 travel.
There are so many stunning sights in Dubai. With man-made islands, epic buildings, and world-renowned restaurants, this city has it all. A chic merging of Asian style with an Egyptian aesthetic, Raffles Dubai is perfectly positioned in the heart of the city. This hotel delivers the unexpected luxury of space, impeccable service and sophisticated style. Raffles Dubai offers some of the most spacious rooms in the city. You can’t beat these bathtub views!
The next hotel we are crazy about is Aman in Tokyo. This hotel is a serene sanctuary high above Tokyo with just 84 guest rooms and suites. The hotel’s design is the epitome of iconic Japanese minimalism. They also have the largest and most comprehensive hotel spa in Tokyo. Notably, they have a 100ft swimming pool that stretches across the skyscape. A great place to take in the city sights!
Featured in Crazy Rich Asians, Marina Bay Sands is an iconic hotel. Boasting the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool, this hotel is a must see. Gaze down on the glittering expanse of the city from 57 levels above. Sunbathe on a luxurious poolside lounger, or relax in the shade of a palm tree with a glass of champagne in hand. Or simply soak in unparalleled views of the city. You can also explore the integrated resort’s attractions, restaurants, and shops. We highly recommend this Singapore stay.
We love these Thailand villas! Featuring two floors, these spacious villas are the pinnacle of luxury and include a private pool. Additionally, there is an upper level master bedroom and a large lounge and dining area on the lower level. The interiors of the seven Tree Pool Houses incorporate suspended furniture and cocoon like beds and loungers. The Tree House offers rain forest and resort views alike. Including a spacious bathroom with monsoon shower, outside shower, guest washroom and a stand-alone bathtub, you’ll never want to leave! The private nature of these villas are perfect for 2021
Want to see the pyramids? Experience the wondrous beauty of the Pyramids from Marriott Mena House, Cairo. A frequent stop for dignitaries and celebrities, this historic, 5-star hotel offers travelers a taste of modern luxury. Set at the base of the Pyramids, hotel guests can walk to one of Egypt’s most popular attractions. The Giza resort is also near the Sphinx, Cairo University and the Egyptian Museum.
In 2021 we are focusing on unique destinations. We highly recommend an Antarctica experience! Explore from every perspective using a range of exploration tools aboard ships such as National Geographic’s Explorer, Endurance, or Resolution. They even have a device that captures footage of the ocean floor. A once in a lifetime trip!
Next we have the Kulum Hotel in Switzerland! With its prime location 1,856 m above sea level, this hotel offers the very best views of Lake St. Moritz. Situated in the heart of the village, guests can soak in the atmosphere and while enjoying modern comforts. This hotel captures the tradition of hospitality that goes back over 160 years. We love the 5-star service this hotel provides.
Lastly, we have Hotel Sanders in Copenhagen. This hotel is ideally located in the historic part of Copenhagen. Notably is it only minutes away from cultural and historic institutions such as The Royal Theatre and The Opera House. Additionally, it is only steps from Copenhagen’s most exclusive shops and leading galleries. Surrounded by the best street food and most inventive gourmet restaurants, this hotel is a must see.
