If you are looking to live the luxury life of a celebrity for a week, the City of Angels is place for you. Walking along the Hollywood Walk of Fame and driving by extravagant homes in Beverly Hills is just the beginning. Book a sports car rental with Turo, sleep in a million-dollar mansion in “the hills” (thanks to AirBnB), dine at fancy restaurants (like WP-24 by Wolfgang Puck and Catch LA), and even see other celebrities around town. Best of all, even though this is a luxury trip – it doesn’t need to have a luxury price tag. This is a cost breakdown of how I spent $423.84 for a 6-Night luxury trip to Los Angeles.

Chefchaouen: the blue pearl of morocco is tucked up in the Riff mountains. The first thing you are struck by is probably the reason you decided to visit.. Everything is a different shade of indigo. The taxis, streets, walls, doors, benches, planters, utility boxes … it’s all different shades of blue. The decor is visually next level. Walking around Chefchaouen is an exercise in beauty. It’s as if the city is wrapped up in a giant sapphire. Additionally, a slew of casual restaurants, local hiking trails, a funky vibe and a laid-back souk capture the heartbeat of this offbeat gem.

This is the perfect destination for luxury travel. The safari lodges are small which means the service and activities are customised and are of the highest standard. The game viewing is at the highest level and the accommodation is absolutely perfect. Certainly, as African safaris go, it is the perfect place to experience wild Africa in a not so wild living environment.

The island of Panarea has been a jet-set and luxury travel destination for decades. This tiny island in the Aegean sea is closed for traffic (allowing only golf carts), and home to only 25 people. You can walk across the island in a day, but even though it’s small, it hosts white boutique hotels and private residencies host luxury travelers from around the world. Panarea snorkeling and diving experiences are amazing, and a reason for frequent stops of luxury yachts that are sailing the Meditteranean. One of the peak experiences you can have is climbing Stromboli, the live, smoking volcano on the island next to Panarea.

Tahiti, French Polynesia for the longest pool in the Pacific ocean Having spent a month on the other side of the world, on the island of Tahiti, it might be even better than the nearby island of Bora Bora, which is more famous for its overwater bungalows – but Tahiti has several of them as well! The reason, however, that makes Tahiti an even more luxurious destination than Bora Bora, is the place where I stayed: the very exclusive Carlton Plage accommodation. This private residence has the longest swimming pool in French Polynesia, 180 meters long, that ends right on the only white sand beach of the island of Tahiti – and therefore best beach of the island, with a view on Moorea island in the back. What can be more luxurious than a quiet private residence, the longest pool within a thousands of miles radius, and one of the world’s most beautiful beach in your backyard, with your own private access?
