Remote luxury is an oxymoron to those who have yet to spoil themselves with a lavish overnight stay, and do so while tucked away from the world in an off-grid hotel.

Luxury Gold travelers, of course, are no strangers to staying in the best city-center hotels in the world, though many will confess that they prefer the particular feeling of escapism that only remote luxury hotels can deliver. 

Whether you’re a nature lover, a thrill seeker, or just desire a break from the crowds on your next vacation, take a peek into the luxurious remote and inaccessible accommodations that globetrotters will stay at during a Luxury Gold tour. 


Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, Canada

Set on the shores of Lac Beauvert, Jasper Park Lodge mixes its backcountry heritage with chalet-style lavishness to create one of the most opulent outdoor retreats in Jasper. Rest your soles after a day hiking with a foot massage at the spa or tighten your cleats and play eighteen at one of Canada’s top-ranked golf resorts. 

Discover the Majesty of the Rockies on this 9-day guided tour. Trek through Alberta and British Columbia, seeing Canada’s best natural playgrounds. From wildlife spotting in Banff National Park to crossing hiking through the canyons of Jasper National Park, this Canadian adventure is unrivaled. 


Te Waonui Forest Retreat, New Zealand

Impeccable eco-luxury surrounded by pristine wilderness, Te Waonui Forest Retreat is remote luxury at its finest. The West Coast of the South Island is your home for the night, but don’t feel limited to just viewing the rainforest from your suite. Explore it. Every step through the lush bush uncovers glaciers, rivers, mountains, lakes — and all of the wildlife that inhabits it.

The Long White Cloud covers 19 cities in just as many days, instantly becoming one of Luxury Gold’s most comprehensive tours of New Zealand. Discover this country from every angle, with curated experiences including an exciting river safari, dinner with a former rugby star, and a private boat tour to the Waitomo Cave.


GHL Hotel Lago Titicaca, Peru

Set adrift on Lake Titicaca, the private island of Esteves hosts an unforgettable overnight experience. GHL Hotel Lago Titicaca stands alone on a rocky bayside hill, surrounded by reed forest. You’re welcome to turn in early after a soak in the jacuzzi or sit in the sauna, but the best way to say goodnight is sitting at the hotel’s sunset viewpoint with a hot chocolate in hand.

Feast your eyes upon the Treasures of the Incas during Luxury Gold’s 12-day otherworldly excursion of Peru. From Lima, through the Sacred Valley, and onto Cusco, this tour showcases the landscape of a country that’s far more rich in beauty than its metallic tokens will ever be.

Leave it to Australia to redefine remote luxury in the desert. Sails in the Desert, Ayers Rock Resort refines the standard five-star experience yet leaves your favorite forms of relaxation untouched. Dine on Indigenous-inspired cuisine paired with regional wines then find a shady spot under a gumtree where only the thick heat of the Northern Territory stands between you and a sparkling pool.

Feel revitalized after 13-days spent exploring Inspiring Australia. Start and end in Sydney, departing only to cruise the Great Barrier Reef, savoring a barbecue in the outback, and drinking in the Hunter Valley wine region.


Hotel Union Geiranger, Norway

It goes without saying that remote luxury in Scandinavia will include a bevy of spa services so allow Hotel Union Geiranger to slide you a menu without a word. The roaring fireplace crackling beside the pool in the Union Spa does the talking: between the sauna, steam bath, Japanese hot bath, and hydra walk, every muscle of yours will unwind in warm relaxation.  

The Timeless Scandinavia tour combines popular city breaks in Stockholm and Copenhagen with a visit to the mythical Geiranger fjords. Once in a lifetime places to travel are hardly as accessible as this tour makes it seem: the ride on the Flåm Railway Scenic Train itself will show you the raw, untouched beauty of Scandinavia that few people other than passengers ever see. 


Ashford Castle

Ireland’s Ashford Castle is far more than a remote luxury hotel in the regal County Mayo. This site has seen nearly a millennia travelers come and go. Follow their footsteps across 350-acres of rolling hills as you engage in falconry, fishing, traditional boating, and archery. And as any good guest should, you’ll pay homage to the Guinness family that once called Ashford Castle home with a pint in the George V dining room.

With imposing fortresses lining the countrysides, Great Britain and Ireland have long coveted remote luxury far removed from the town center. Luxury Gold’s Castles & Kingdoms tour affords you 20 days to indulge in regal experiences throughout England, Scotland, Ireland, and Northern Ireland, including a night spent in the five-star hospitality of Ashford Castle. 

Extraordinary hotel stays are just an average travel day with Luxury Gold. Book the trip of a lifetime today and discover a new level of luxury.
