For many, the chance to unwind and explore some of the best views the world has to offer is a life defining moment. Whether it’s relaxing on a private island or watching the sun set over the mountains, here at TJB we have access to villas, private islands and hotels all over the world so can tailor your holiday for a unique experience.
Here’s our top 5 locations that will create lasting memories to cherish and are guaranteed to take your breath away.
Thanda Island, Tanzania
Approx 30km East of Tanzania, Thanda Island is a private marine reserve measuring 1.1km in circumference and 350m wide. Sat just South of the equator, the island is reached by either a 45 minute helicopter ride or a 30 minute boat ride from neighbouring Mafia Island.
Accomodation wise the Luxury Villa is everything and more that you would expect from a high end beach house. For a more authentic Tanzanian stay, the two Bandas on the Island are a more traditional option, whilst still ensuring a luxury stay.
Relax and unwind in the glass rim-flow swimming pool or soak up the amazing 180-degree views that the dining area has to offer of the ocean.
Thanda Island offers its guests with ample opportunity for snorkelling and exploring the vast marine life that the Shungimbili reef has to offer.
Four Seasons Resort Lanai, Lanai, Hawaii
This luxurious location is a 5 diamond resort, nestled on the South coast of the unspoilt island of Lanai. Overlooking Hulopoe Beach with breathtaking views of the North Pacific Ocean, it’s accessible via private air transfer courtesy of Lanai Air. The resort features 9 bars and restaurants, 2 pools and a chic spa.
Nearby there are plenty of activities to choose from, be it racing around the island on buggies, taking in the many exquisite snorkelling sites or lowering your handicap with a round of golf at the Jack Nicklaus designed Manele Golf Course, there is plenty to keep you occupied!
Carlton Hotel St. Moritz, Switzerland
A stunning boutique hotel with views across Lake St. Moritz in the Engadin valley, nearly 2000m above sea level in South East Switzerland. This destination is a must for those alpine lovers amongst us. Offering 5* superior accommodation across the range of 60 suites, the hotel boasts a number of recent awards in the past few years.
Should you wish to have complete privacy, the entire hotel is available to rent comprising of 7 floors, 21 suites, 39 junior suites, 2 restaurants, 2 bars and spa area covering an impressive 3 floors!
Coco Privé Private Island, the Maldives
Situated 35 minutes via private yacht from Malé International Airport, the Island itself is 1.4 hectares of pure relaxation! For those looking for an intimate location for close friends and family, the master residence and 5 guest villas will see you looked after by your own team of staff 24/7.
Your own personal therapist is on hand to offer spa treatments literally anywhere on the island. If you get your adrenaline rush from water sports then look no further, windsurfing, canoeing and catamaran sailing should keep the smile on your face long into the evening when your own private chef will cater for your every need.
Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort, Oman
Styled on a traditional Omani fort, this mountain retreat is the highest 5* hotel in the whole of the Middle East. A 2 hour drive from Muscat airport, only 4WD’s are allowed to enter the reserve.
Boasting 33 suites (our pick of the bunch is the Cliff Pool Villa with canyon views!), infinity edged pool and spa with five treatment rooms this is your very own high altitude indulgence.
The resort makes a fantastic base to explore the local region which includes the World Heritage site Birkat al Mouz. Due to the higher altitude, the climate is much cooler than you would expect on the coast. After a busy day exploring why not relax in one of the 6 restaurants and lounges, serving a range of local food including fresh seafood from the Sea of Oman.
