What is a luxury vacation?
Luxury travel is the experience of a lifetime, but what does it even mean? And what luxury destinations to visit should be on your list? Well, luxury travel is all about personalized experiences and service. High-end resorts and hotels are eager to learn exactly what their special guests want and then cater to their needs.

The voyage north
One of the best experiences on the planet must be the Northern Lights. This stellar attraction must be seen in real life to truly enjoy it, and the best place to experience the Northern Lights is to head to Tromsø, and to Clarion Hotel The Edge, to be exact. So, what makes this hotel so opulent?
Well, its location is a major draw. It’s located right at the water’s edge, which was the inspiration behind the hotel’s architecture. You will see that hotel is reflected on the way, which makes for quite an interesting sight. The hotel is also known for hosting concerts and high-end conferences. Here are some of the impressive facilities:
- Sky bar: Found on the 11th floor, the sky bar is where you can enjoy various events, live music, and some delicious drinks. But that’s not all. You’ll also have amazing views of the city and the Northern Lights! Here’s a helpful guide on when and where to see the Northern Lights.
- Living room: This is not a conventional living room. It’s more of a lively meeting place. Everything that went into the design of this space is centered around people, and you can enjoy something to eat and drink while meeting new people.
But the real highlight is the rooms. Their best room is the superior suite, where a maximum of two people are allowed. It’s the hotel’s largest room, and boasts massive windows so you can view the city directly from your room. With a king-sized bed and two seating areas, what more could you want? Well, plenty! The superior suite is located on the hotel’s top floor and even comes with a workspace should you happen to be working while traveling. The room also includes a coffee station in case you’re in need of a quick pick-me-up.
