We asked our clients to choose their favourite luxury holiday destinations - and this is their shortlist...

Peloponnese

Why? A place of discovery that's ripe with Ancient Greek architecture and pristine beaches. It's gone under-the-radar for years but a new flight route into Kalamata means the Peloponnese is a destination on the up. It's our little secret…. Shh!

St. Petersburg

Why? Russia's cultural capital is alive with colour and the opening of the luxurious Four Seasons in 2012 has been a catalyst for a wave of new visitors. Ideal for families as well as couples - St. Petersburg is trending.

Borneo

Why? Borneo is a big bucket list trip that will wow adults and children alike. There's no better time to get up close to Orang-utans and snorkel with giant turtles than June- September.

Mauritius

Why? This tiny Indian Ocean island has long set the standard for tropical luxury. The months of May and June are a cost-effective time to visit. For a late booking we recommend a stay at The Residence - catch it while it's hot!

Cyprus

Why? Cyprus is home to some of the best family hotels in the Mediterranean. It's a destination that time and time again reaches our top destinations hit list. We particularly recommend the Anassa and Almyra for family-fun that doesn't compromise on style and sophistication.
