Holiday Type / Learn from the Experts

Cultural enrichment is fast replacing material indulgence amongst the luxe-travel cognoscenti, as more opt for learning experiences over lavish pampering. Inspired by their regional heritage, luxury retreats connect their guests with local experts to create unique cultural encounters; from harvesting rice in Thailand to uncovering centuries-old bushmen secrets in Botswana or capturing the coral houses and spice bazaars of Zanzibar with a professional photography lesson. Others forge winning celebrity partnerships to elevate their resorts to centres of excellence - the excitement of Wimbledon is recreated in Antigua as Annabel Croft leads a tennis camp whilst aspiring golfers pick up tips from PGA pros on a Jack Nicklaus course in Mexico.
