Top Luxury Travel Trends 2018

Ready to get out there and explore?

2018’s Top Luxury Trends are in—and Equity Estates has you covered. Whether your bucket list items consist of cruising Europe’s Danube River or going “off the grid” or indulging in a highly-curated food and wine tour--we can make your travel dreams come true.

  1. The Rise of Adventure Travel & Luxury Expeditions

    Let’s face it—some bucket list trips are daunting to plan. When your travel dreams span different continents, time zones, languages and currencies, it can be difficult to handle all the details. Where would you even begin planning an African safari or a trip to explore Antarctica? That’s one of the reasons our Expeditions program was created.

    Equity Estates Expeditions allows investors the opportunity to enjoy once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences outside of our portfolio of homes. We curate the perfect itinerary, elevate all accommodation and services, secure the best area guides, and more. Highlights include a tour of the Galapagos Islands via private yachtan authentic safari in Botswana and an off-the-grid family “glamping” adventure out west. Let us handle the details—you just show up and enjoy!
  1. River Boat Cruising

    The cruise industry’s largest growth segment and the hot ticket for many is the European River Cruise. The intimacy, focus on food and wine, ease of access to major city centers and available on-shore activities make river cruises very distant cousins of their ocean counterparts.

    We’re pleased to announce that next September, Equity Estates Expeditions will be floating down the Danube from Vienna to Budapest on the premiere river cruise line—Crystal Cruises. This meticulously planned adventure offers our investors ultra-luxe suites with private balconies; Michelin-star dining; elevated, never-done-before tours and activities; an upgraded wine selection; and so much more.
  1. Culinary Craze

    Enjoying food and wine has become experiential. Folks are traveling long distances for culinary adventures--everything from five-star cuisine to local street fare.

    According to Travel + Leisure, the best cities for foodies include BarcelonaRomeFlorenceParisSan Francisco and New York, all of which you can access with Equity Estates.  Your Personal Travel Concierge can get you reservations at the hottest new restaurants around. We think Napa Valley is another American highlight, and our Calistoga Ranch residences put endless options at your fingertips. Browse our Perfect Weekend in Napa Valley Photo Diary and begin dreaming!
  1. Wellness, Fitness and “Personal Healing”

    Whether you’re into holistic wellness retreats, training for a fitness milestone, seeking spiritual enlightenment or simply looking to reconnect with your loved ones and the world around you, this rising travel segment speaks to everyone on some level.

    Our most recent Expedition to Tuscany was specifically designed to engage the spirit and indulge the senses in an intimate setting. It was such a success that we’ve decided to recreate the trip again this fall.

    But you don’t have to sign up for an international expedition to feed your soul—our Personal Travel Concierges can arrange a customized wellness retreat at any of our destinations. Why not try a yoga course in Costa Rica or explore nature’s wonders in Hawaii?
