Although it’s not entirely a new concept, female-only vacations have soared in popularity over the last few years. One of the best things about traveling with friends is that a stronger relationship can develop out of the experience. You’ll share incredible and fun moments and learn more about each other throughout your adventures. 

When traveling with your female friends, deciding which place to visit can be tricky, especially if your group prefers destinations that exude luxury. To help you with this, refer to this list of the top five luxury locations for female group travel.

Hawaii 

Hawaii’s beautiful islands have everything every luxury traveler seeks – five-star resorts, award-winning spas, world-class dining, luxury poolside amenities, and plush guest rooms. For those who want to enjoy a quieter and more relaxing luxury holiday, head to Kauai. As the oldest island of Hawaii, it’s home to ancient rainforests, dazzling waterfalls, and brilliant green valley waiting for you to explore.

Kauai is beautiful anywhere you look, but the most stunning area is probably the North Shore, home to the magnificent Napali Coast. It’s a 17-mile coastline lined with cliffs of up to 3,000 feet tall and accented with cascading waterfalls, lush green valleys, and astonishing sea caves. You can only explore this natural wonder on foot, boat tour, or helicopter ride since it’s inaccessible by car.

The North Shore is also home to upscale Kauai lettings, where you can indulge in world-class amenities, including a pool and jacuzzi. What’s more, these North Shore villa rentals are spacious enough to accommodate groups of travelers.

Iceland

Iceland’s options for unique activities are endless, making it a top destination for females who love outdoor adventures. Each season offers varying options to create an adventure like no other. In winter, you can trek volcanoes, hike the glaciers, or marvel at the stunning Northern Lights! Meanwhile, summer activities include exploring the south coast, hiking through the Laugavegur trail, and making the most of the midnight sun.

The best way to get around Iceland with your group is to rent a car and drive the Ring Road, Iceland’s national road. This 820-mile route connects most towns and villages while passing along the country’s most iconic sites, such as Lake Myvatn, Hverfell Volcano, Dimmuborgir Lava Field, and Dettifoss Waterfall. The southern drive starting at Reykjavík all the way to Egilsstaðir is the most scenic, with glacial lagoons and majestic waterfalls visible from the road.

After a long drive, head to some of Iceland’s best restaurants to indulge in a variety of Icelandic cuisines, such as the sheep’s head and lamb meat soup. Reykjavik’s renowned nightlife is also worth checking out, starting at the area of Laugavegur and continuing to the streets of Bankastraeti and Austurstraeti.

North Carolina 

North Carolina is an alluring destination that you can explore all year round. It has diverse landscapes, thriving arts and culture, and historical sites. The state’s stunning mountain ranges offer a majestic setting for outdoor activities, such as horseback riding and hiking. For a more luxurious way of exploring the outdoors, consider glamping with your friends in North Carolina. You’ll find plenty of glamping sites in the state, offering a truly unique and fabulous experience.

When it comes to exploring North Carolina’s outdoors, the Great Smoky Mountains would be a perfect spot to visit. It’s one of the most visited national parks in the US, featuring breathtaking landscapes of thick forest, rugged mountain ranges, majestic waterfalls, and abundant wildflowers. The Great Smokies also offer more than a thousand kilometres of hiking trails, including a section at the famous Appalachian Trail. 

Take a break from hiking and make a stop at the beautiful Bryson City to explore its boutiques and art galleries. Then, experience a thrilling white-water rafting adventure and catch a scenic train ride along the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad.

Ibiza

Ibiza is the best place to be if your group loves to party. But aside from being a party destination, Ibiza also offers plenty of other things to keep you and your friends entertained. It has truly beautiful beaches and lots of fun outdoor activities. 

Gather the girls and get your blood pumping on a thrilling mountain biking adventure towards the island’s scenic roads and trails. Make your way to Santa Eulalia, and pedal through its low-traffic roads that line the coast. Try stand-up paddleboarding if cycling is not something your group is fond of. Like surfing, this activity involves a board and requires you to stand up on it and then use a paddle to propel yourself to move forward. 

After a fun-filled day, treat yourselves to a relaxing massage at one of the island’s luxurious spas. Some of these spas can send a team of skilled masseuses to your villa anywhere on the island to save you from the hassles of having to go to their place. In the morning, join one of those yoga classes by the beach. Choose a session to suit your group’s mood and capabilities.Ibiza Villa Dieguito Olivers Travels

At 2,565 metres tall, it serves as a sanctuary for a wide range of animal species and a wonderful place for birdwatching and wildlife spotting.

One of the best things to do in Chiang Mai, especially if your group loves to cook, is to take a Thai cooking class, where you’ll be taught how to prepare delicious Thai cuisines, from Red Curry to Pad Thai and Som Tum.
