Are you a girl in her 30s looking to take a break and enjoy some quality me-time? A solo luxury vacation could be just what you need. Especially because you won't have to make unnecessary compromises or deal with tedious planning — this trip will be all about you and what you want to do. The following solo trip ideas let you bask in life's finest pleasures guilt-free and embark on a journey of self-discovery that you'll never forget.

Bali's Serene Sanctuary

Bali caters to the soul-searching solo traveler seeking spiritual renewal and physical rejuvenation. If that sounds like you, consider booking a stay at one of the upscale villa resorts in Ubud, the island's cultural heart, arriving via a charter plane.

You'll spend your days marvelling at mesmerising emerald rice paddies and ancient temples while immersing yourself in traditional Balinese rituals and practices such as yoga and meditation.

Relish the solitude with sunset yoga sessions and luxurious spa rituals using local herbs and flowers. You can also participate in spiritual cleansing ceremonies at water temples and fill your days learning about traditional woodcarving, batik, and other crafts.

Savour haute Indonesian and fusion cuisine at acclaimed restaurants while you’re there — there’s every reason to enjoy decadent foods. But Bali is also known for having the country's most diverse fruit selection, so be sure to try exotic fruits like mangosteen and snake fruit during your stay.

Culinary Immersion in Italy

Feed your passions — both literal and figurative — on an Italian food and wine journey. Italy overflows with opportunities to learn, eat, and drink exceptionally well while soaking up incomparable history and art.

Imagine wandering the cobblestone streets of Rome, Tuscany's medieval hill towns, or the Amalfi coast. You'll visit world-class wineries, olive oil mills, and artisan food purveyors. Take a cooking class or two and learn to craft pasta and pizza with local chefs who are masters of their craft and passionate about their culinary traditions.

If you’re a history enthusiast, then you should definitely indulge your love of art, architecture, and antiquities with visits to museums, archaeological sites, and private villas. A decadent solo Italian adventure promises an intimate cultural connection you'd never find on a group tour.

Refined Adventure in New Zealand

For the active yet luxurious solo traveler, New Zealand delivers incredible hiking, water sports, and wellness pursuits amidst stunning natural beauty. You can soak in mineral hot springs and recharge at vinotherapy spas. Enjoy private helicopter tours over magnificent fiords and soaring peaks, and taste your way through the country's acclaimed wines and fresh farm-to-table cuisine.

For a truly immersive experience, stay in one of the plush lodges or luxury boutique hotels. They offer a refined outdoor escape that nourishes your body, mind, and spirit. At night, you can stargaze under the brilliant night sky, far away from city lights, and lose yourself in the vast sparkling canopy of stars overhead.

Unwind in Pristine Beaches and Desert Sands

If scenic tranquility is your goal, look no further than luxurious beach and desert retreats. Imagine yourself lounging beachside at upscale resorts in Bora Bora, Fiji, or the Maldives.

Remote island locales like the Maldives or Seychelles offer total serenity and sumptuous privacy. Imagine snorkeling over vibrant coral gardens in turquoise lagoons, then indulging in lavish spa rituals and romantic private dining experiences that pamper and rejuvenate.

For a different vibe, embrace the serenity and sweeping desert vistas of places like Namibia, Jordan, or Dubai. You can choose to either stay in chic tents or sleek villa resorts — depending on your preference. Either way, you’ll be able to enjoy thrilling desert adventures like dune bashing and sandboarding balanced with unforgettable stargazing and moonlit evenings.

What sets these escapes apart is that they let you unplug completely. Nature's gentle rhythms, pampering amenities, and lush surroundings are an oasis for reenergizing and reflection.

City Chic in the Fashion Capitals

If fabulous food, fashion, art, and endless pampering are priorities, treat yourself to a glamorous luxury getaway in the iconic cultural and style meccas of the world like Paris, New York, London, Milan, or Dubai.

You can start your mornings with flutes of champagne and lavish breakfasts in bed. Then, spend days exploring amazing boutiques, art galleries, world-class museums and exhibits, and extraordinary restaurants.

After sightseeing, enjoy high tea or aperitifs at posh lobbies and clubs, or indulge in private guided tours and ultra-exclusive shopping experiences curated just for you. Your evenings will be spent savoring multi-course tasting menus paired with stellar wines. Perhaps even infuse your stay with private self-enrichment classes in subjects like art, fashion, or wine.

This is your chance to immerse yourself fully in the finest offerings of the world's most chic and cultured cities.

Treat yourself to the best

Solo travel unlocks a liberating new mindset around possibilities and self-discovery. These luxury trips ensure you experience the journey exclusively on your terms. Give yourself the gift of uncompromising freedom and unforgettable memories earned through personal passion and fulfillment.
