The definition of luxury is divided into material meaning, a term for habitual indulgence or a means of ministering enjoyment. Collectively these definitions perfectly sum up what luxury holidays are and why we love them.
It was as I was thinking about what makes luxury holidays so special that I began to think of The Leading Hotels of The World. As there is nothing wrong with wanting the best of the best I have looked into what makes members of The Leading Hotels of the World stand a cut above the rest, for those seeking the ultimate luxury experience.
