Hotel Chateau de Grand-Luce – Loire Valley, France
Spending a few nights in unique heritage accommodation is an amazing way to see a new area. If Paris is your destination, add on a few days in the Loire Valley and check out the area’s newest hotel, the Hotel Château de Grand-Luce. This neoclassical mansion, just an hour from Paris, was built in the 1760’s and has now been converted into a lux boutique property. Guests can enjoy la belle vie, taking in the chateau’s French gardens, antique furnishings, and the best of European hospitality.
Rates start from $1000 USD per night.
Luxury African Safari – Magashi Camp
If an African safari is on your radar for this year, look no further than Magashi Camp, part of the Wilderness Safaris group. The camp is the only private accommodation within Rwanda’s Akagera National Park and will open its doors in spring 2019. In addition to private, glamorous tents, guests can join in on daily game drives to see Africa’s ‘big five’ and enjoy the on-site wine cellar, the wines a perfect accoutrement for a sundowner over Lake Rwanyakazinga.
Magashi also has a strong focus on conservation, working to stop rhino poaching and creating tourism initiatives as a sustainable resource to better the lives of the local community. The hotel will become one of the best hotels in Africa.
