After nearly a year of living with travel restrictions, we’re all anxious to to get back out and explore this big, beautiful world. With winter settling in, that urge to escape has never been stronger. Fortunately for the sun-chasers among us, there are places where safety and quality go hand in hand – and we’d love nothing more than to take you there! Here are four properties on a pair of islands that make for the perfect (and perfectly safe) beach holiday.
Beach Breaks – Aloha Hawaii
Hawaii needs no introduction; the island state has long been a top destination for travelers of all kinds. Each of its islands offer something unique: Maui with its stunning beaches and watersports, Oahu with the thriving capital city of Honolulu, the Big Island with its awe-inspiring volcanoes and world-class hiking. There is something for everyone in this Pacific paradise, and the state has recently re-opened for visitors, with stringent health policies designed to ensure the safety of all who make the journey.
Maui’s best resorts blend the romance and seclusion of a remote island sanctuary with the comfort and choice one finds in a central hotspot. The epitome of this balance is on display at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea. The property sits on the pristine shores of Wailea Beach, from which an endless supply of adventures are launched: learn to surf the perfect wave (you’re in Hawaii, after all) or reel in a big-game fish for your chef to prepare that very evening! This is also the season for even larger swimmers – humpback whales gather offshore for social play, a sight you’ll carry for a lifetime.
Maybe you need more than a couple of days for your getaway, or enjoy a sunnier place to work remotely; look no further than The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Waikiki Beach. Mere minutes from downtown Honolulu, these suites combine a residential touch with the brand’s globally-renowned service to produce the oceanside home you’ve always dreamed of having. Brand-new furnishings, world-class sushi, and the highest infinity pool in Waikiki Beach – you may never return to the mainland!
Beach Breaks – Joy in Jamaica
For our East Coast friends, Hawaii can be a little far for a tropical getaway – luckily, the Caribbean offers just as many sun-splashed locales for safe travel. One such destination is Jamaica, which like Hawaii suffers no shortage of international renown. The easy breezy island living is the perfect antidote to the pressures of this past year, and we partner with a handful of fantastic resorts which embody this ethos in perfect style.
Montego Bay is synonymous with Jamaican luxury – and the best of its properties is the Half Moon Resort. This sprawling property offers three “resort experiences” in one: the historic stylings of Founders Cove, the crisp modern luxury of Eclipse, and the ultra-spacious multi-bedroom homes of the Rose Hall Villas, with your own butler, housekeeper, and chef. No matter what you choose, you’ll enjoy a full two miles of private powdery beach. Who said social distancing can’t be fun?
If you like your travels to come with a good story, there’s only one property in Jamaica for you. GoldenEye is a legendary destination; Ian Fleming wrote all of his James Bond novels in this very spot, and visitors have been coming for inspiration ever since. It’s not hard to see why: a collection of villas and cottages, each uniquely furnished, provide a connection with the surroundings that a larger resort never could. We could all do with a mental and spiritual refresh, and there’s no better place for it than this one. It’s fresh, authentic, and the furthest thing from pretentious – the spirit of Jamaica itself.
Whether it’s the vast Pacific or the cozy Caribbean, you deserve a sunny getaway this winter, and The Luxury Travel Agency will find the ideal place for you. We only work with the best properties around the world – and today, that also means the safest. Let us whet your travel appetite with the perfect beach holiday!
