This year has been absolutely fabulous on the travel front. I’ve been fortunate enough to go across the length and breadth of the planet, experiencing the best that the luxury travel industry has to offer. Under the gambit of luxury travel come experiences like hotels, concierge services, airline lounges, aircraft premium cabins, upscale destinations, retail hubs, luxury services and more. From chatting with a fellow passenger in an aircraft lounge bar, to sipping tea in the middle of a Himalayan stream, from discovering the most exclusive barefoot luxury in Australia to playing golf overlooking the Indian Ocean, this year has been a rollercoaster of luxury experiences. Here are my top luxury travel moments of 2016 – in no particular order.
