There are certain times in life when you just need to get away. If you want to leave your responsibilities—and country—behind, grab your passport and check out any of these international treasures to get a taste of some exotic cultures.
Wimco Private Villas was founded with isolation in mind. Combining the thought of being in your own home without dealing the with the responsibilities of owning one, these 1-8 bedroom villas on the island of St. Barts are as far away from the urban life style as you get. These villas, which span the styling spectrum from West Indian styled cottages to hilltop colonial retreats and modernist compounds, can easily convince guests to extend their weekend getaway into a permanent vacation.
Just a stone’s throw away from the US, our neighbor to the south offers miles upon miles of magnificent beaches for visitors to enjoy. Cuixmala is no exception. The estate and its 25,000 acres of land located on the Mexican Pacific was originally conceived as a private home but offers visitors an ideal resort to experience an unspoiled, beachfront landscape.
For the puddle-jumpers at heart, Europe offers visitors a plethora of vacation spots, each with their own respective culture and array of attractions. Adding to the charm of the Italian beachfront, Villa Tre Ville offers guests an atmosphere filled with art and culture. Liz Taylor (and her husbands), Leonard Bernstein, Laurence Olivier, Liza Minnelli, and Elton John are just a few of the artists known to have frequented the culturally-rich property.
Juxtaposing old Chinese culture and new world trends, Beijing offers a shopping paradise in its new malls and night markets, as well as ancient cultural landmarks like the Great Wall and the Forbidden City. However, actually wanting to leave the Shangri-La Hotel, Beijing in order to visit all of the attractions will be a bit more challenging.
If you enjoy the Far East cultures but fancy more of a beachfront retreat, then the Maikhao Dream Hotel & Resort is where you want to be. Situated on a waterfront property in Phuket, Thailand, this über-luxurious and amenity-rich establishment blends the best of both worlds to offer guests the ideal getaway location.
