With promising news of the vaccine rollout, new data shows that up to 70% of travel consumers are hoping to make the most of their unused vacation days in 2021. Some of the most popular destinations include luxury beachfront destinations in St. Barth’s, and Los Cabos and driving trip through California’s wine country. While many travelers feel ready to get in the car and go, others are ready to safely hop on a plane again for the ultimate getaway. Here are four destinations on my 2021 Travel Bucket List that I plan to visit:
St Barth’s is magnificent, yet sadly many of the resorts and properties were damaged due to Hurricane Irma, and then the pandemic hit. The completely rebuilt private beachfront hideaway Le Sereno St Barth is now open and ready to receive guests. Located on the ultra-private crystal-clear waters of the Grand Cul De Sac in St. Barths, there is a fresh new look to all guest rooms, including 39 newly renovated waterfront suites, and luxury four-bedroom villas. The re-imagined Restaurant Al Mare now has a new beach restaurant extension, and offers relaxed luxury and attentive service. Besides a new retail concept store, they also expanded the spa featuring exclusively curated Valmont products and treatments. Le Sereno’s guests can enjoy a beachfront sunset picnic experience with a private butler, painted porcelain dinnerware, champagne and Mediterranean-inspired fare from the hotel’s Michelin-starred executive chef.

The legendary Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford, CA was the dream of French restaurateur, Claude Rouas. In 1981, with business partner, Bob Harmon, Rouas opened Napa Valley’s first fine-dining restaurant, designed to reflect a taste of Provence in California wine country. The immediate success prompted the addition of “The Inn of the Sun” five years later. Nestled within 33-acres of heritage olive and oak trees, the hotel’s 50 contemporary guestrooms and suites, blend relaxed sophistication with understated elegance. Guests have two different outdoor picnic options set in the olive grove. Guests can choose from an intimate, private dinner and champagne toast under fairy-tale twinkle lights or a deluxe daytime experience offering French-inspire cuisine, artisan cheeses, charcuterie and wine.
