A Façade or a Getaway?
How many times have you thought of a vacation and felt at your wits end deciding on the destination? If the destination is great, then it’s the distance and travel time. Once you get that out of the way, the next big challenge is to find a place to check in. You will find a dozen hotels which deem themselves ‘Star Hotels’, an ordinary Bed & breakfast will wishfully call itself ‘A Boutique Hotel’ and then you have the five star hotels and all their conundrums of booking, waiting, checking in, etcetera. These options, and plenty more, are available in all dream destinations, but in the end it leaves us with nothing special. The rooms’ feel the same; the restaurants serve you the same ‘complimentary’ breakfast – an isle which is more of an assembly line actually, starts with a choice of fruits, often its raw pineapples, over-ripe papaya and tasteless watermelon. This is followed by a saccharine spread of dry Danish’s, eggy sponge cake, Special ‘K’ and cocoa nibs. Lest we forget, the shallow filled buffet bowls, the lids of which – never hold at the top, neatly filled with canned baked beans, packaged sausages, roasted tomatoes, and flavored water as Saambar! Can we also give a special mention to the ubiquitous vinegar and spice filled jars, which are placed randomly throughout the restaurant cum coffee shop? This experience is hardly out of the ordinary, and yet, we find ourselves succumbing to this façade of a ‘Getaway’. The current situation of luxury vacationing is arguably downgrading, so what is the future of luxury vacations? Perhaps now would be a good time for you to explore the unexplored side of Luxury Vacationing.
Tired of Empty Promises?
You give up the search on the star hotels and look for a resort and it’s the same story repeated with a different twist. The promises are tall, but as they say, looks can be deceptive. What you see is never what you get. The pretty pictures you would have seen of the resort online or in that fabulous looking ad will not match when you check in. The serenity promised will be broken with noisy holiday makers and their entourage. Either you will feel like running away again or shutting the door of your room and watch a recorded IPL match.

Now, before you settle for that exotic sounding resort with aisles of rooms, a pool which is common for toddlers and their big tubes, a bikini and boxer clad honeymoon couple, and let’s not even mention the uncle who is determined to swim his way to a six pack.
