Who’s ready to fantasise about the trip of a lifetime? Join us as we check out the top Summer lotto winners’ holiday destinations for 2017, from glamorous Granada in Spain to a 100% exclusive island group in the Bahamas.

Paris, France

As one of Europe’s biggest cities, Paris has countless different sides to its character, from the opulently luxurious to the rough-and-ready. Thankfully for luxury travellers, there’s plenty of the former to explore.

The famous Champs Elysees comes especially highly recommended, thanks to its high concentration of luxury boutiques, with top brands including Louis Vuitton, Abercrombie & Fitch and LE66 amongst those represented on this most glamorous of streets.

Unsurprisingly, Paris is also home to some of the most luxurious hotels in Europe. The Hôtel Fouquet’s Barrière would have to be our pick of the bunch – with rooms starting from over €1.300 a night, it’s the most expensive place to stay in Paris. Not only is this 5-star hotel fabulously luxurious, it’s also ethically spotless. Hôtel Fouquet’s Barrière was recognised for excellence in social and environmental responsibility at the Condé Nast Traveller 2013 World Savers Awards.

Musha Cay, Bahamas

Let’s push the luxury levels up a few notches… Musha Cay and the Islands of Copperfield Bay in the Bahamas are home to a private luxury resort that takes exclusivity to the next level. If you want to stay at Musha Cay, you’ll need to hire out the whole archipelago at once, for yourself and up to 24 guests. The only people you’ll encounter at Musha Cay are the people you invite, and the staff who serve you.

These luscious Bahamian islands are home to over 40 private beaches, a drive-in bar, snorkelling, jet skiing, and most importantly of all, an abundance of natural beauty.

Unsurprisingly, none of this comes cheap. A stay on Musha Cay will cost at least €35.000 a day for up to twelve people, and on top of that you’ll have to pay for your flight or ferry to this remote Caribbean idyll. Nevertheless, can you put a price on paradise?

Granada, Spain

The Andalusian city of Granada is perhaps one of the most overlooked holiday hotspots in Spain. It’s also one of the most beautiful. Granada was the last stronghold of the Moors in Western Europe, and its unique history shines through in its stunningly beautiful architecture.

Lonely Planet have described Granada as the “land of a thousand castles”, and chief amongst these is surely the iconic, 13th Century Alhambra palace, complete with its red castle walls.

Granada is a fascinating destination on just about any budget – but it’s extra special if you can afford to take advantage of the city’s more luxurious attractions. As far as hotels are concerned, we would have to recommend the Parador de Granada, where rooms start from around £338 per night. This exceptional hotel is literally at the heart of historic Granada, situated in a converted Catholic monastery that forms a part of the iconic Alhambra palace.

Aside from its stunning hotels, Granada offers easy access to the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains and some excellent fine dining options, notable including newly opened La Milagrosa and the higher end Alvaro Arriaga restaurant, which offers stunning a panorama of the city.

Chiloé Island, Chile

Chile may not be the first destination that springs to mind when you think of extravagant lottery winners – but this fabulous South American country is in-fact home to some of the most jaw-dropping holiday hotspots on Earth.

Our favourite Chilean destination is beautifully unspoilt Chiloé Island, where a totally unique seafaring culture survives to this day, well off the typical tourist trail.

All that’s not to say that Chiloé doesn’t offer plenty of options for luxury tourists. In fact, the island is home to one of the most highly rated hotels in South America: the Tierra Chiloé Hotel & Spa. This luxuriously appointed, 12-room design hotel is your gateway to the fascinating Chiloéan way of life. Guests can expect life-changing trips to local farming communities, woodland treks and voyages around the coast on the hotel’s private yacht.

There are plenty of people who haven’t even heard of Chiloé Island – which is all the more reason to add it straight to the top of your luxury holiday checklist! Please note that temperatures in Chile are lower during the northern hemisphere’s summer months. If you’d prefer to visit in hot weather, save your trip to Chiloé Island for your luxury winter travel itinerary at the end of the year.
