Luxury vacations with added bonus

Last updated on

Top luxury lifestyle report Forbes Traveler has recently reported on a growing trend in the luxury travel industry: “Learn a Skill” vacations. These vacations allow luxury travelers to expand their horizons and learn something new in sought-after destination spots. From elephant rides to formal dance lessons, those who proficiently multi-task in the board room now are looking to have activity-filled getaways.

Guests at the Mansion Dandi Royal in Buenos Aires can sign up for Borello Travel and Tours’ four and eight-day tango immersion courses. Those traveling to the Anantara Resort Golden Triangle in Thailand can go to a nearby elephant camp and learn how locals care for the majestic elephants in addition to mounting and riding.

Viviani Destination Management in Napa’s “King of Grapes” program invites guests to try their hand at making wine over a two-year term. First, guests pick the grapes and de-stem them to begin the process. They return the following year to blend their wine and finish the process of aging, bottling, corking and labeling. In France, Valrhona’s Ecole du Grand Chocolat offers two cooking courses for true chocolate lovers on how to make only the most delightful (and decadent) desserts: truffles, candies, mousse, cakes and the classic chocolate cookies.

Other “skill vacations” include tile painting in Holland, glass-blowing in Washington state, and gambling tutorials in Monte-Carlo.
