Little by little, the borders begin to open and the desire to travel echoes in our dreams. But now what? What will it be like? Is it safe? When is it safe? Well, of course, a bombardment of questioning will invade this resumption after so many months of isolation, and especially with so many uncertainties about the coronavirus. Safety is essential, and with that, a trend that is gaining strength is the preference for destinations close to nature and with maximum isolation. To combine these two factors a great alternative is to rent houses, villas or bungalows inside luxury hotels and resorts that offer super exclusivity and good service. One of my favorites in the world is the Four Seasons group. They have a collection of over 750 houses and villas in 26 destinations around the world in a program called Four Seasons Private Retreats. I will suggest below 4 destinations, along these lines, that I have already had the privilege of living and that I recommend you.

1. Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora

French Polynesia steals the scene. The bluest blue of life is there. I stayed in a Two-Bedroom Premier Beachfront Villa and simply lived an unforgettable experience in my own little corner, with no contact with anyone else. An infinity swimming pool overlooking the white sand and breathtaking views of Mount Otemanu. Spectacular!!

2. Four Seasons Private Island Maldives at Voavah

Landing on a Maldivian atoll by seaplane is a dream in itself. In an atoll as exclusive as the Baa Atoll, which is considered as Unesca’s Biosphere Reserve. The villa has seven rooms and capacity for up to 20 people. It can only be rented in its entirety. An untouched tropical paradise surrounded by private beaches. A luxury! 

3. Four Seasons Resort and Residences Anguilla

The Caribbean island of Anguilla is of endless peace and beauty. The Four Seasons Anguilla occupies both the top of a cliff overlooking Meads Bay, voted the most beautiful beach on the island, as well as houses on the sand, facing the most blinding Caribbean blue imaginable. One of the most enchanting islands in the Caribbean, for sure. 

4. Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai

A perfect retreat in one of the most special places in Thailand. The resort is surrounded by greenery, and its high point is the rice terrace, which produces the rice consumed in the hotel, which in fact has a divine cuisine!  A place that doesn’t leave my heart in any way. It is among the most special memories of my travels around the world. 

And now how to choose? Hard, huh? Only heaven on earth. And know that the service is personalized, with governance twice a day, chef at your disposal, private pool and all services can be requested by the Four Seasons application. Essential at this time of so many uncertainties, but it will pass.

Take care, XoXo and see you next Tuesday.
