Top 5 Luxury Hotels that won’t break the bank

It doesn’t have to cost several thousand a night to stay in luxurious surroundings. These are our favourite 5 top hotels that won’t break the bank:

1. Rosythe Rock Villa – Kegalle, Sri Lanka

Perched atop a rocky outcrop overlooking the 62-acre private tea and rubber plantations, the Rock Villa is Rosythe Estate’s piece de resistance. The colonial planter’s bungalow of Rosythe Estate is attractive, welcoming and luxurious, and a Must on any Sri Lankan itinerary.

2. San Agustin – Cartagena, Colombia

A whitewashed colonial building in the heart of colourful Cartagena, the timber balconies, verdant inner courtyards and redtiled roofs of San Agustin form a perfect haven. This hotel hits the sweet spot between colonial character, contemporary clean lines and cosy furnishings.

3. Vismaya Lake Heritage – Kerala, India

Serenity washes through your body as you enter the sanctuary of Vismaya. This two-bedroom private villa, set alongside a peaceful backwater, is an oasis of tranquility. A centuries-old and beautifully preserved property, intricate wood carvings decorate the panelled walls and solid teak columns form its core.

Watch the butterflies flit among the flowers in the garden, observe kingfishers and owls from the river bank or paddle gently along the peaceful waterway in a canoe, accompanied by floating water lillies. Dine on the verandah in the setting sun to the background hum of distant temple drumming and the echoing call to prayer.

4. Pacuare Lodge, Costa Rica

Jump aboard your raft – this secluded luxury hotel can only be accessed by river! A colourful haven tucked away amidst the jungle foliage, Pacuare Lodge sits alongside one of the best rivers for white water rafting. Seek adrenalin crashing over the rapids between the rivers vertical banks or enjoy the sounds and sights of the jungle from the comfort of the lodge.

5. Tierra Patagonia – Chile

Designed to blend seamlessly into the vast landscapes of the plains, at Tierra Patagonia you feel part of your environment. The ultimate spot for seclusion, your only neighbours are the sheep roaming the land and the giant condors soaring overhead.
