You might have already explored far-flung corners of the world and you crave the pass less trodden. Skipping the main sights doesn’t faze you; you seek authenticity, adventure, the heart of the destination.
That said, faffing around with complicated connections and interminable transit doesn’t much appeal to you - especially with the current state of the world. So these trips are stripped back to the essence of adventure and, while they may seem a little ‘out there’, for the seasoned explorer this could be just the thing.
Indonesia is home to thousands of islands of infinite possibilities, with landscapes that feel beyond this earth. This holiday encompasses two fantastic hotels in Bali and Komodo. Each property feels off-the-grid but is surprisingly simple to reach, and offers stunning surroundings with the opportunity for once-in-a-lifetime encounters with the natural world.
Go beyond the typical resort-style holiday in The Maldives, and we know that you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Staying on these two residential islands will not only give you all the tropical flavour you'd expect - beautiful beaches, snorkelling, coral reefs - but an enriching cultural experience, too. Travel on local boats, eat traditional Maldivian food and gain an insight into the local way of life.
Laos is one of those rare places that leaves you feeling rested while satisfying the urge for adventure. Its seductive, slow-paced rhythms against the backdrop of some of Asia’s most astounding scenery give it an almost otherworldly sense of calm. However, that’s not to say it lacks spark or an abundance of new experiences, from river cruising through rural villages to cycling between the 4,000 islands of the south.
