Who says luxurious vacations have to come with a hefty price tag? With a little bit of research and planning, it’s possible to take an unforgettable trip that won’t break the bank. Here are some destinations around the world where you can experience luxury without emptying your wallet.
Bali, Indonesia has been a popular tourist destination for many years, and it's also a great place to experience luxury on a budget. With beautiful beaches, exotic jungles, and many sights to see, Bali offers everything you need for a relaxing and rejuvenating vacation. You can learn the land by visiting Ubud, the cultural hub known for its traditional Indonesian culture, waterfalls, and historical museums. Or visit a more popular option, Canggu, home to five beaches, restaurants, and fitness centers.
Accommodations range widely from budget-friendly house rentals to high-end resorts, but even the mid-range options offer plenty of luxurious amenities. Steps away from the souvenir shops at the Legian Traditional Art Market, Fourteen Roses Beach Hotel offers great deals with luxury-styled amenities, plus it’s just a short walk to Kuta beach, known for its surfing atmosphere. The nightly rates vary by season, from as low as $16 USD per night, up to $45 USD per night.
Lisbon is a charming city with memorable architecture, delicious food, and vibrant culture. While it may not be the first destination that comes to mind when you think of luxury vacations, there are plenty of ways to experience the city in style without spending a fortune. Walk through the beautiful neighborhood districts of Alfama and Belém, each boasting historical landmarks, unique shops, and traditional street food. Lisbon’s many museums unveil the rich history, culture, and art of the country.
Stay in a stylish boutique hotel, indulge in local cuisine at a high-end restaurant, and enjoy a glass of port wine while taking in the stunning views from one of Lisbon’s many rooftop bars. Lisbon has many luxurious hotels in the heart of the city with beautiful views of the historical architecture for as low as $41 USD per night. By staying in the city, you can avoid transportation costs by walking from one destination to another without renting a car or using a taxi.
Marrakech is a city full of exotic sights, sounds, and flavors, and it’s also a great destination for a luxurious yet affordable vacation. Stay in a traditional riad (a type of Moroccan guesthouse) for as low as $14 USD per night, where you can enjoy beautiful courtyards, rooftop terraces, and delicious Moroccan breakfasts. Indulge in traditional hammam spa treatments and explore the city’s colorful markets and souks.
Outside of the city there are many breathtaking nature tours at affordable rates. From Marrakech, you can join a guided tour to the beautiful Ouzoud waterfalls and get the chance to appreciate Mother Nature up close. While on this guided tour, you’ll learn about traditional Moroccan culture and meet playful Barbary apes native to the area.
