Reunion Island: Redefining luxury travel

  • 15 November 2017

Luxury travel goes beyond staying in the top floor suite of a hotel. It’s about seeking the rare experiences that represent everything that is authentic about a destination. Travellers immerse themselves in a destination whilst indulging in experiences that make the destination unique. Reunion Island boasts a variety of spas and luxurious hotels that embody a touch of France, while emitting a rich cultural infusion of the Creole cultures present on the island. Travelers can indulge their senses with an aromatic full body massage while sipping on Rhum arrange or lounge next to crystal clear pools while the tropical sun kisses your skin. Visit the ultimate destination boasting an array of personalised experiences that can be best described as exhilarating with a touch of sophisticated extravagance.

This tropical destination is a short four-hour flight from Johannesburg with Air Austral, and visa-free for South African travellers, making it the perfect getaway spot for those seeking a trip with a twist.

The experience:

Reunion Island is home to the ultimate experience and has coined its rightful place within a market where the notion of luxury has become diluted and the concept of the singular experience has come to the forefront. Reunion Island has seen an influx in travellers that focus solely on the experience, as opposed to the traditional luxurious retreat, making it a destination that has redefined the luxury market.

Reunion Island offers a variety of tailor made experiences that are unique to this destination. One of these experiences is the Piton de la Fournaise, an active basaltic volcano that lures hikers across the plains and along its ancient routes. The Piton de la Fournaise is one of the most sought after locations in the Indian Ocean as it allows travellers the opportunity to behold the majesty of nature while simultaneously being able to indulge in the finer things of life.

From the Piton de la Fournaise to the lush green landscapes of Cirque de Salazie and the untamed wilderness of Cirque de Mafate, travellers are able to experience diversity at its best within the depths of the island. Luxury comes in many shapes and forms and can be found alongside the striking Bassins and waterfalls scattered around the island. Travellers can either experience these sights from the skies with a private helicopter ride or hike along the forested paths to dip their toes into the cooling waters.

Reunion Island has redefined the essence of luxury travel through providing unique experiences to travellers who want to escape the mundane while enticing their sense of adventure and longing for a one of a kind moment.
