Our Top 10 Favorite Luxury Resorts
Baby boomer travelers are continually asking us about our very favorite luxury resort destination, and our favorite quip has always been ‘our next destination’.
However, now that we’ve got a significant number of luxury travel resort destinations under our belts, we thought it was high time we answer the question without a smarty-pants answer.
Before we disclose our list, you should know that we limited this list to resort destinations and have left a great many metropolitan hotels, boutique hotels, bed & breakfasts, cruise ships, yurts, and other fine experiences for another list at another time.
Furthermore, we made absolutely no attempt to rate one over the other. We simply listed them as they came to our minds. However, I’m certain that there are a few psychologists in our readership who would cry that a subconscience prioritization was in fact happening.
Be that as it may, here are our travel video postcards from each of our top 10 favorite luxury resorts.
Grab a bag of popcorn, sit back and relax, and prepare to be amazed at some beautiful travel destinations that are certain to be added to your bucket list.

#5 – San Ysidro Ranch – Santa Barbara
The honeymoon spot for JFK, and one of our very favorite spots on the California coast. This was quite possibly the most luxurious room of all, and it’s a favorite of Hollywood types to sneak away from the peering eyes of the paparazzi. For more information, here’s a link to our feature.

A Scottish castle surrounded by mountains, forests, and lakes. Unbelievable! For more information, here’s a link to our feature.

Recently the setting for George Clooney’s recent movie ‘The Descendants’, this property’s mountainside location overlooking the northern shores of Kauai will absolutely take your breath away. We want to go back! For more information, here’s a link to our feature.

The Four Season’s on Bora Bora was our favorite too! Pure luxury in pure paradise! Thanks for this blog post, loved it.
The Fairmont Hotels in the Rockies of Alberta are all fabulous! I have stayed at all 3 – Lake Louise, Banff and Jasper. The best that luxury has to offer and the view and surroundings are incredible. I always want to stay forever when I am at any of these resorts.
