10 Ultimate Luxury Experiences to Treat Yourself to in 2024

If you’re looking for ways to treat yourself this year, you’ve come to the right place. Here are ten luxury experiences you have to have

Even though sometimes life is all about simple pleasures, such as comfort food, playing board games with your loved ones, stepping into the great outdoors for fresh air and some movement, catching up with the latest crime series, or pottering around the home, it’s all about finding the right balance between that and the more luxe things in life.

This year, we are encouraging you to grab ahold of your simple pleasures, mix them with luxury experiences and make 2024 all about experiencing the best life has to offer.

Here are our 10 ultimate luxury experiences for 2024…

A Private Jet Experience

Chartering a plane with your friends or family will be an extraordinary travel experience. These memories will last a lifetime and add a little spice to any holiday plans.

Imagine being able to set your schedule instead of getting up at the crack of dawn to catch a flight; what a bliss. Wherever you’re flying to, you’ll have a whole cabin full of comfortable, expansive seats all to yourselves. You can plan your excursions, catch up on some sleep before you land, or enjoy the extra time with the ones you love. 

Instead of arriving tired and crotchety, you’ll land at your destination completely refreshed and ready to take on the world. Besides, the food options are far more varied and customisable, as are the drinks.

A Salon-Quality Makeover

If you’re going to change your haircut or colour, get a new set of nails, or are looking for a new way to do your makeup, the best people to ask for advice are the experts. Wherever you are in the world, there’s a luxury salon just waiting to help you look your best. Here are a few top examples:

  • London: Brooks and Brooks
  • New York: Sharma Makeup Studio
  • Tokyo: Sozo Hair and Makeup
  • Milan: The Violette Salon

A Luxury Solo Staycation

Sometimes, you want to be around the people you love; other times, you need a little ‘you time’. For those that would love a staycation, may we suggest London? With so many incredible hotels, it’s about time we get to experience the best of it. Just you, a plush hotel room, heated pool, spa treatments, room service, and a fluffy duvet all weekend long. Here are a few luxury hotels to consider:

  • Chiltern Firehouse in Marylebone: A gorgeous retro interior concept, heavenly breakfasts, and celebrity clientele
  • Shoreditch House in Shoreditch: When you check-in, you get full access to the members’ club for your whole stay. Play table tennis or soak in the people-watching at the exclusive bar
  • Shangri-La at The Shard at London Bridge: If you can tear yourself away from the exquisite views from each room, you’ll want to relax in the sauna or sky pool

A Foodie World Tour

Experiencing foreign culinary delights is, undoubtedly, one of the best things out there. Of course, you can find authentic world cuisine in most major cities across the world these days, and those experiences are certainly nothing to sniff at, but they’re not a patch on experiencing the food culture of different countries in the places they originate.

Taking a luxury foodie tour is the only way to really get to know the culture from which your favourite cuisine comes. This is an essential component in really appreciating the national and culturally relevant dishes that you love the most. Imagine eating authentic teppanyaki in Tokyo rather than London or sampling paella in Valencia rather than New York.

All the cultural accoutrements traditionally associated with preparing and serving these beloved dishes for hundreds and in some cases, thousands of years would be present, enhancing the experience and making it one to remember for the rest of your life.

If you consider yourself a foodie, there are some places and dishes that should go hand in hand on a foodie world tour:

  • Risotto Milanese with ossobuco at Ratanà in Milan, Italy
  • Buzjenbo (warm udon topped with deep-fried tofu and satsuma-age fish cakes) at Udon Buzjenbo in Tokyo, Japan
  • Banarasi Kala Chana Masala (spicy tomato masala, black chickpeas, sweet potato, toasted chilli oil) at The Bombay Canteen in Mumbai, India
  • Banana flower salad with pig’s ears at Ann Quán in Hồ Chí Minh, Vietnam
  • Seafood Moussaka Special at 7 Thalasses on Rethymno, Greece

Book a Luxury Cruise

Booking a luxury cruise gives you that feeling of relaxing in the comfiest hotel room you could find while having the option to step off the ship or onto the deck and experience exotic locations and incredible service – it’s a win-win. 

For those, considering booking a luxury cruise holiday, here are some of the top contenders:

  • Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, Evrima. 11-Night Athens to Rome
  • Seabourn, Seabourn Venture. 13-Day Antarctica Exploration
  • Silversea Cruises, Silver Dawn. 15-Day Copenhagen to Lisbon

Treat yourself to luxury experiences this year, because life is for the living and memories are just waiting to be made. Whether you stay local, eat globally, or just get a new look, you won’t regret your luxury experience.
