Around the World in Luxury

In celebration of its 80th anniversary, the Leading Hotels of the World is offering a $1 million trip around the world in 28 days with stays in the hotel group’s most opulent hotels and resorts, private air transportation, and customized luxury experiences throughout the journey. Starting in London, the “Around the World in 80 Ways” trip follows the journey taken by Phileas Fogg in the Jules Verne classic Around the World in 80 Days. From London, the trip continues on to Paris, Dubai, Mumbai, Jaipur, Udaipur, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Honolulu, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. Each private excursion is customized to satisfy the individual desires of the guests throughout the 28-day vacation. Highlights include a camel safari in Dubai (image shown); dinner at Le Jules Verne restaurant in the Eiffel Tower; and a stay at Rambagh Palace in Jaipur with rejuvenation therapies in the tented spa and a private visit to the Gem Palace to see the jewels of the maharajas. The bonus: 10 percent of the cost of the trip will be donated to the Elton John AIDS Foundation. (212.515.5704)
