If you have a spare Dhs400,00+ and a desire to live like an A-lister, then we have the perfect answer for where you should holiday this year.
The Four Seasons is world-renowned as a luxury hotel chain, but it turns out the company also dabbles in exotic, bespoke getaways.
Using the five-star brand’s own private jet, the Four Seasons can whisk parties away on a mix of far-flung itineraries throughout the year – and several make a stop in none other than Dubai.
Up to 52 passengers can travel aboard the custom-designed plane, but the first-class flights aren’t the only attraction on offer – the excursions at each destination are pretty flash, too.
The next around-the-world trip is taking place in November, and will circle through three continents, taking in London, Moscow, Dubai, the Seychelles, the Serengeti and Florence.
The 19-day Cultural Experience, which rings in at a cool Dhs390,000 per person, includes dinner at the Burj Khalifa when in the UAE, along with a 4×4 desert safari, dune boarding, and a helicopter tour of The Palm. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also drinks aboard a private yacht and a trip to the Gold Souk.
The accommodation included in all trips is, unsurprisingly, at Four Seasons hotels as you criss-criss around the world. And don’t expect a cramped journey between destinations either as the private jet features leather-clad flatbed seats, an onboard concierge and chef, and complimentary Bose headphones and an iPad.
The priciest trip currently on offer is Extraordinary Adventures, which will set you back Dhs503,000 per person for the 25-day trip departing in September.
Travelling through the US, Costa Rica, Australia, Malaysia, Mauritius, Tanzania, Morocco and Portugal, passengers will be able to dive with dolphins, take a hot air balloon ride, journey by private catamaran, or immerse themselves in a wildlife-filled rainforest.
The 24-day Global Getaway, which will take place from March 2017 for Dhs495,000, is the second trip to stop off in the Middle East, sandwiching Dubai in between Singapore, Thailand, Hungary, France, Colombia, the US, Nevis and Portugal.
That budget deal to Greece via three different airports is paling in comparison now, hey…?
