How to Travel in Lockdown: The Best Virtual Getaways on Youtube, by The Luxury Travel Expert.

One of my past times is watching good quality, travel-based Youtube videos. There are some amazing creators out in this beautiful world, who are able to bring destinations, accommodations, and adventure activities right to the comfort of your couch. 

The Luxury Travel Expert, is just one of those creators, and I have been “obsessed” with his videos, for a very long time. Often being transported from my couch on a rainy day, to these beautiful places around the world, simply with a click of a button. 

All the below videos were filmed by The Luxury Travel Expert, who gives us a real feel, jump through your screen experience.


One day is one day. I really look forward to visiting the Soneva properties in the next few years. Taking into account the amazingly designed properties, villas and accommodations, there is also the fact that the Soneva group, is deeply focused on sustainability. 

The Maldives is high on my list of places to explore, I stumbled across these amazing in-depth videos of their properties, by The Luxury Travel Expert.

Make sure you have access to some uncapped wifi, as the videos are between 30mins – 1h long. It’s well worth it, snuggle onto your couch, get a warm blanket, some red wine and behold the properties below.

Next, we pop across to another island in the Maldives, to another property group. One that I have had dreams about visiting, for a very long time. This property would be a lovely getaway with your partner, its romantic and intimate settings, evening sunset views and room interior, are perfectly catered for a romantic getaway.

Keeping in line with some island travel, we pop over to the, Seychelles with The Luxury Travel Expert.

Lake Como, Italy

Next we move over to Italy, a place I have wanted to visit since I was 11 years old. Starting in the heart of Lake Como, at the famed Grand Hotel Tremezzo. This captivating hotel, stands tall on the hillside of Lake Como in the picturesque town.

If you’re like me, and your vacation is all about being outside, taking in expansive views of the ocean, or dipping into the pool, on hot Summer days, then start watching at the 17:00 mark. Take in the grand scale of the building, and then dip into the waters and “that” pool! Oh and did I mention the pool bar, and the orange and white stripped, umbrellas? As you sip on an Aperol Spritz? Its what travel dreams are made of.

After an afternoon of laying in the sun, and watching the boats go by from the pool deck, we move along.

Portofino, Italy

Tucked into the hills of the Italian Riviera, you’ll find a grand hotel, hidden amongst the trees. What is now the Belmond Hotel Splendido, was once a 16th Century Monastery. After it was revamped, and turned into one of the most prestigious 5* star properties, in Italy. It was frequently visited by old Hollywood stars, notably Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

“Italian Glamour” as it is self described, and I can see why.

Albeit quieter than Lake Como, you can expect to spend your days in glistening pools, sipping on drinks, named after silver screen stars. And watching the luxury yachts, drift along the water. Fresh seafood brunches, made with local ingredients, and wine directly from the region, can you image anything better?

Thanks to the Luxury Travel Expert, you dont have to wait to long. Step right into the Belmond Hotel Splendido, right here.
