How to Vacation Like the Rich

When most people vacation, they pick a few places they would like to travel and try and determine what their budget will buy them. There are always compromises in the place they stay, the activities they participate in, the length of time they vacation, or all three.

When it comes to the very rich, they set their vacation plans differently. They lay out an idea of the type of vacation they want to have, and then determine what destination will be able to accommodate them. They plan out how long they want that vacation to be and then they allot whatever funds are needed to ensure they have the best time possible.

There are vacations that cater to the rich and that know how to pamper them in the way they expect. They spare no expense and give them unforgettable vacations that meet their highest expectations. Here are some of the top vacation options around the world that cater to the very rich with one of a kind experiences:

Ultra-Luxury Cruises

When the rich want to cruise, they leave the large liners behind and indulge in the unique personal service aboard smaller ships. Where their every wish is met as they travel to the stunning locations that greet them along the journey.

Cruise lines like Silversea, Seabourn, Regent Seven Seas and Crystal Cruising have one clear objective: to provide the standard of service ordinarily enjoyed only by billionaires on their private yachts. Aboard their magnificent vessels, every stateroom is an ocean view suite, impeccable butler service comes as standard, and food is of Michelin star quality. Whatever a guest needs, a butler and his team will strive to provide – ensuring the guest enjoys a level of service that even the world’s most celebrated hotels would struggle to match. This is how the rich enjoy a luxury cruise holiday.

The resort has several villas each fit for royalty, but its crown jewel is the Lamarck House, a four bedroom seafront villa that is unmatched in Asia. The villa comes with a 50 meter infinity pool, a private concierge, maid service and a masseuse on 24 hour call to guests.

 Baccarat Hotel, New York

For the wealthy with a love of sports, there is only one vacation to choose in the United States. The Baccarat Hotel in New York has a US Open Men’s Final package that is a real winner.
