The rise of post-lockdown luxury private vacations
There’s no better tonic than vitamin sea, and after limited travel for so long, we’ve all earned a little luxury
The past couple of years have played havoc with our travel plans, and while many of us, forced to slow down by the pandemic, used the time to reconnect with our close ones and take some time out, eventually the restrictions started to wear even the most optimistic of us down.
Now the world has opened again, it’s time to widen our horizons and take a well-earned luxury getaway, be it a private beach vacation or a private yacht charter in the Caribbean, where there are endless beaches to choose from.
As we emerge from the pandemic travellers are looking for more meaningful experiences, and few things are more meaningful than spending quality time with your nearest and dearest. On private yacht holidays, you can travel the world with your family and loved ones, while staying safe in these post-lockdown times.
Luxury yacht holidays are subject to fewer restrictions than other holiday options, as the environment on board can be carefully monitored, and they offer more flexibility, whisking you away to wherever you wish to go.
You can drop anchor at a private beach, and picnic or party under the stars, before boarding your yacht for a world-class meal and to relax in sumptuous comfort, before arriving in a new destination in the morning.
There are endless benefits of a private yacht vacation and there is no better way to holiday without limits.

With luxury yacht holidays available across the globe, the world really is your oyster. Edmiston has a huge fleet of yachts to choose from, depending on your destination and list of must-haves.
Stuck on where to go? See some of our most inspiring destinations or read on for three of our most popular luxury charter grounds.
Private yacht charters in the Caribbean
Chartering a yacht in the Caribbean gives you access to infinite heavenly islands that feel like they are yours and yours alone. Spend your days swimming in pure turquoise seas, take a night dive in the Cayman Islands and see the illuminations of the glowing corals and fish, or hang out at some of the fashionable resorts, from the golfing hotspot of St Croix to St Lucia or St Barths.
This winter PHOENIX 2, the 90m Lurssen, is available to charter in the Caribbean. An opulent yacht with glamorous Art Deco-inspired interiors, no fewer than three pools, a spa, and a packed toy box, she is an excellent choice for your luxury Caribbean charter holiday.
For a graceful sailing boat in the Caribbean, try SPIRIT OF THE C’s, a Perini Navi yacht, which has cool understated interiors and expansive decks, including an extended sun deck and a retractable swim platform.
AQUIJO is a luxuriously appointed 86m sailing yacht, which is the largest high-performance ketch in the world, and her amenities, which include a 24-seater dining table with retractable skylight, three outdoor bars and two Jacuzzis, make her well suited for Caribbean cruising.
Private yacht charter in Greece
Why not create your own Greek odyssey with a charter around some of Greece’s 6,000 islands and islets – most of which are uninhabited? Greece is a
place of quiet sophistication, where antiquities from the Classical and Roman eras vie for your attention. Elsewhere, sugar-cube villages cling to lush hillsides, overlooking sapphire seas with incredible restaurants, where you can watch the sun set, and exclusive beach bars and rooftop clubs where you can watch it rise again.
For out-and-out luxury as you glide between the Greek Isles, SAVANNAH is peerless. Plus, as Feadship’s first ever hybrid vessel, she’s a charter yacht that comes without the eco-guilt. SAVANNAH comes with an underwater observation lounge, a 30ft swimming pool, a private sun deck with DJ booth, and a full beach club. How’s that for a luxury vacation set-up?
At 88m, the award-winning MALTESE FALCON from Perini-Navi is one of the largest sailing yachts on the planet and can accommodate up to 12 guests in supreme comfort. You and your guests can make the most of those mild Greek evenings in the cinema under the stars, which boasts the largest outdoor screen of any yacht, take a dip in the Jacuzzi, or bliss out in the revamped spa.
ILLUSION I meanwhile, is a 55.50m classic Feadship motor yacht, which has been extensively modernised with all manner of luxury amenities, including a sun deck Jacuzzi, quiet sunbathing spots, and a beach club for days when you really want to mess about on the water.
Private yacht holiday in Croatia
An increasingly popular cruising destination, Croatia is a place that melds historic architecture with the natural beauty of the landscape effortlessly.
There are innumerable pretty anchorages off its more than 1200 islands and islets, and its 280-mile coastline is dotted with Roman ruins, Venetian palaces, and ancient walled towns.
In terms of luxury, there is no shortage of exclusive islands and Croatia has one of the most exciting culinary scenes in Europe – Istria in the north is fast becoming the new Tuscany, while at the Michelin-starred Monte in Rovinj, you can expect theatrical gourmet dining.
For a luxurious base for a bout of island hopping, try SUNRAYS, the 85.50m Oceanco superyacht, styled by the inimitable Terence Disdale, which has a large pool, plus two Jacuzzis, a spa, and an overflowing toy box, which includes an inflatable slide.
Also offered for charter in Croatia is LADY S, a 93m Feadship, which boasts some of the best amenities of any yacht on the charter market, including the first IMAX Dolby cinema, a fully certified helipad, a glass-bottomed pool, and a beach club with hammam.
And new to the market is RESILIENCE, a vision in midnight blue, which includes numerous amenities for the perfect Croatian charter, including a deep pool, plus a Jacuzzi, an outdoor cinema, a chic beach club and even a Turkish bath.
Wherever you choose to take your private luxury vacation, our range of luxury yachts will give an experience of a lifetime.
