Last updated on

Spring Break may conjure images of students running wild in the Bahamas or swimming through foam parties in Cancún. However, doesn’t everyone need a break from the office for a delightful getaway from the roaring lioness weather in March?

A luxury Spring Break can take you away to some of the most beautiful places in the world, without the rush of the crowds. This list is a compilation of the top luxury vacation destinations for Spring Break 2009, with a guarantee that there won’t be a dancing devil or plastic bracelet in sight!

St Barth’s: If you missed a winter vacation in the powdery beaches of the Caribbean islands, now’s your chance to make up for it. St. Barts is the ideal island for a luxury getaway without the crowds of “Spring Breakers” that flock to Jamaica and the Dominican Republic. Rent a yacht charter and cruise around the idyllic seasides or simply relax in a private villa overlooking the sparkling Caribbean. Known as a haven for the fabulously chic and infinitely wealthy, St. Barthélemy is a virtual sanctuary for bold-face names. You won’t find any sprawling resorts on this eight square mile island. St. Barth’s is where the discerning traveler comes to relax, unwind and reconnect with that special someone.

Ambergris Caye: Many visitors with discriminating taste traveling to Belize cruise right on over to this sparkling gem of an island, and spring break is no exception. Eat, drink and be merry on the vivacious island Ambergris Caye this spring and enjoy a discreet private villa that will truly whisk you away from it all. It’s a laid-back island with fun restaurants and divine beaches. You will definitely return bronzed and refreshed after a few days relaxing on this caye’s sugary beaches.

Colorado: Hit the slopes for the final run of the winter season in deluxe luxury ski resorts in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Hotspots like Beaver Creek and Telluride are dreamy Colorado resorts and often offer special discounts for skiers and boarders looking to book a luxury spring break getaway on the slopes. Interested in renting equipment? Check out concierge services like Ski Butlers and they will do all the heavy lifting so you don’t have to! Ski Butlers is a full-service ski and snowboard shop that will come to you for fittings, delivery and pick-up so all you have to worry about is how many runs you want to do before lunch!

The Alps: Europe’s legendary peaks are enjoying some of the best conditions right now as the winter rush comes to a close, leaving the slopes powdery and free from crowds. Austria‘s stunning mountains are covered with fresh snow and the temperatures have risen to provide excellent ski and snowboarding conditions. Head to the luxury Swiss ski resort Verbier for ideal ski conditions and fantastic weather. When not riding the demanding trails, feast on sumptuous cuisine in the luxury resort‘s collection of restaurants and warm up in one of the stylish bars in the village.

Mexico: If you really can’t imagine a Spring Break without heading south of the border, skip Acapulco and Cabo for the quieter (and equally beautiful) Costa Alegre. Discerning travelers have discovered the charm and unbelievable vacation rentals in Costa Careyes, one of Mexico‘s best-kept secrets. Careyes is a sexy, ultra-luxury resort hidden among the dramatic Pacific coastline and sleepy palm-shaded coves. It’s the Mexican version of St. Tropez, brimming with playboys and international jetsetters sailing aboard sparkling yacht charters and dining in elegant bistros. The vacation rentals in Careyes definitely have the “wow” factor, some sporting infinity pools wrapping around the entire private villa.

Spring Break 2009 is almost upon us and it’s time to get moving on booking your private villa or mountain chalet for the ultimate dream getaway. Regardless if you’re looking forward to wild week with the guys in Miami or a quiet family vacation in Tuscany, the whole point of Spring Break is simple: have the time of your life!
