Vogue decided to survey a group of hospitality experts to find the best destinations for 2023.
Here’s what they have to say:
Both Iceland and now Greenland offer “segregation with intent”. This is your chance to escape the crowds and test your limits. It’s where people go next for pristine beauty and Northern Lights sightings.
Benguela Island, Mozambique
Mozambique’s Bazaruto archipelago comprises five islands known for their sandy beaches and abundant marine life. The second largest of these, Benguela, has become a casually wild and mysterious haven for the wealthy. Board a dhow, a traditional African fishing vessel, or ask the lodge to take you to see dugongs (rare manatees).
This pristine region is known for its beautiful beaches, fascinating history and mouth-watering fresh seafood. Looking for the ideal starting point? Journey to Maratea, the ‘Pearl of Tyrrhenia’ where the owner of Puglia’s Borgo Egnazia has opened her beautiful 5-star Santa Venere Hotel.
Guatemala has long been overshadowed by the more popular Latin American locations, but this is a mistake: it offers the true “best” without the crowds and is one of the most culturally rich LATAM destinations. One. Shine.
Yukon Territory, Canada
The Yukon is known for its historic sites, rich culture and breathtaking scenery. What makes it truly unique is the people you meet along the way.
Douro Valley, Portugal
This year, visit the lush and dramatic hills of the Douro Valley in northern Portugal to experience some of the most breathtaking scenery (and one of the most delicious wines) in all of Europe. The heart of the region is just a few hours’ drive east of Porto, and getting there by car is a highlight in itself. A drive through idyllic vineyards and picturesque villages, winding narrow roads up from the mountains, is like stepping into another world.
If you want to have a great time, you must experience the food, the people, and the combination of nature and city. Coming to Singapore for the Grand Prix is a very thrilling experience as the atmosphere of the city changes completely.
Málaga has undergone a cultural resurgence over the past decade, becoming a vibrant cultural hub on the stunning Costa del Sol. Several new museums have opened there, including the Center Pompidou, a modern art treasure housed in a colorful glass cube.
Everyone wants to go to Japan and it is in great demand. As this was a pre-pandemic ‘destination’, there is still demand from travelers who have had to change their travel plans, along with renewed interest in Japan’s rich culture.
The recently opened Gleneagles Townhouse skillfully blends old and modern elements. Abstract art hangs beneath a beautiful 19th-century dome, and the restaurant serves both experimental drinks and Sunday roasts.
