If you fancy spoiling yourself and visiting somewhere that’s a little more upper class than your average package vacation in Benidorm, then you’re likely looking for exclusive holiday destinations. We’re talking places with luxurious boutique hotels aplenty, fine wine and dining on tap, plus private white sanded beaches on your doorstep. We’ve put together a list of some of the most exclusive holiday destinations in the world; taking all of the hard work out of your getaway planning.
Those who are looking for an exclusive holiday destination that is home to the stars should look no further than Antigua, an island in the West Indies. Celebrities that have holiday homes here include Oprah Winfrey, Giorgio Armani and Eric Clapton, to name a few. It must be something to do with the crisp, white beaches and the shockingly clear and warm waters that Antigua is so famed for. Tucked into the little bays surrounding the island, you will find some of the world’s most exclusive resorts; including the renowned Hermitage Bag. This is the kind of destination where you can just put your feet up, soak up the sunshine and enjoy some well-deserved R&R. There are things to see and do around the island too, including the historic Nelson’s Dockyard, so take some time out of sunbathing to investigate further.

You may be surprised to see Cape Town on a list of most exclusive holiday destinations, but we can promise you that it fully deserves to be here. Certain areas, such as the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, are known for attracting plenty of rich and famous holidaymakers. The best thing about this South African city is that everything you could possibly want to see is on your doorstep. Take a trip to the simply stunning Table Mountain, peek at the brightly painted homes in Bo-Kaap or visit the historic Robben Island & Nelson Mandela Gateway. If you want to go celebrity spotting, whilst topping up your tan, then you have to check out the Clifton Beaches; particularly the fourth one.
The capital of Kuwait is home to some of the richest people in the world, along with some of the best luxury hotels and designer shopping outlets. It isn’t just modern attractions and high rises, however, as Kuwait City has plenty of historic places to visit. Some of the buildings are still damaged by wars from yesteryear and there are plenty of old Islamic buildings, along with bustling street markets. This really is the perfect place to live like the rich and famous, whilst also visiting beautiful historic sites. You don’t have to be a lottery winner to experience this exclusive destination, as there are now plenty of cheap flights to Kuwait City from airports around the world.
