If revenge is a cold dish, then revenge travel is an indulgent feast.
The term “revenge travel” gained popularity during the height of Covid-19. People sat in their homes, wishing for the time they could finally take revenge on the pandemic that kept them from their dream destinations. And now that we’ve fully stepped out of a long stretch of social distancing and travel restrictions, it feels especially joyful to embrace open spaces, engage with new faces and tread down unfamiliar territory.
Our moment of revenge is squarely upon us. Let the revelry begin.
If you are still carefully devising your revenge travel plans, here is a thoughtfully curated set of suggestions for you to consider when ramping up your holidays.
For the epicurian
For those whose holidays revolve around dining, skip the cookie cutter must-try lists and aim for remarkable culinary experiences that cater to both the palate and the soul. Imagine a lovely four-course wine pairing lunch at a classical Tuscan restaurant in the shade of Castello Banfi's medieval castle in the breathtaking Brunello di Montalcino region. Or, picture yourself at The Ginstitute in London, where you will learn all about gin’s storied past in its home city. And of course, Nahm in Bangkok awaits you with its innovative and award-winning Thai cuisine, prepared to perfection.
When you seek serenity
For those who dream of exotic hideaways, envision yourself staying at one of the world's most exclusive retreats that harmonise luxury and comfort. The enchanting COMO Cocoa Island in the Maldives offers a private island sanctuary, where every detail is thoughtfully considered. The breathtaking COMO Uma Paro in Bhutan provides stunning vistas and itineraries made for exploration – a perfect blend of adventure and serenity.
Travel as rejuvenation
To nourish the body and soul, escape to any of our COMO Shambhala retreats around the world. Just a short hop, skip, and a plane ride away, COMO Shambhala in Phuket offers half-day or whole-day wellness packages designed to reinvigorate with a harmonious blend of innovative therapies and ancient Eastern practices.
