There’s no doubt that the SBP team loves a little luxury getaway here and there. Whether we’re indulging in an easy, breezy daycation, local staycation or a more extensive holiday retreat, we’re always on the lookout for the next best spot to kick back and relax. And the latest travel trend we have our eye on? Doing absolutely nothing. Yup, you heard us.
Simplicity has become the ultimate luxury as travelers seek to escape everyday life and totally unplug. We all just need some good ol’ human connection amid nature, right? In today’s day and age, we’re constantly consumed by digital demands, making a stark disconnect from society pretty much the sexiest travel idea ever. So, we did a bit of research and compiled an epic grand escape bucket list. We’re good with paying the big bucks to do nada.
Tierra | Patagonia
Everyone should have Patagonia on their travel bucket list, but there’s no better way to do it than jumping entirely off the grid. Tierra is set within an uber remote locale adjacent to Torres del Paine National Park, pairing modern, minimalist design with absolutely unrivaled views of snow-covered granite towers and emerald lakes. Just be prepared to leave a changed person.
Longitude 131° | Australia
Next up on the list of faraway places to disconnect from society is Longitude 131°, situated in the rugged outback of Australia’s Red Centre. This is glamping at its absolute finest, complete with sixteen tented pavilions designed to offer both a luxurious sanctuary and a profound sense of place. Chuck your phone and experience a wellness journey curated specifically to your wants and needs.
Fogo Island Inn | Newfoundland
For those looking to escape to one of the four corners of the earth (because who isn’t?), look no further than Fogo Island Inn. This ultra-modern, architecturally distinct hotel is perched atop a cliff in Newfoundland with absolutely nothing in sight—besides miles and miles of Atlantic. Here, experience the luxury of simplicity with foraged cuisine, sustainably designed suites and a boundless natural playground just beyond your doorstep.
Amangiri | Utah
Utah probably doesn’t come to mind when you think of an incredibly off-the-grid escape, but Amangiri is here to prove you wrong. This super luxury hotel from five-star hospitality brand Aman is one of the most coveted destinations in America, offering a supremely hidden retreat amid 600 acres of Utah wilderness. All that’s required of you here? To find some serious inner peace.
