The global pandemic we have been facing for the last 22 months has undoubtedly changed the travel priorities from the most demanding travelers worldwide.

In this post we are going to explain the luxury travel trends in 2022 and why Marbella continues to be one of the world’s favorite destinations for those looking for a trip in style with a high degree of exclusivity.


Travel trend 2022 in the luxury market: #1


According to Brian Chesky, CEO of Airbnb, travelers are now booking longer stays, as, since the pandemic, more people are location independent when it comes to work and is certainly taking advantage of it to travel, extending their vacations over weeks, months, or even entire seasons.


As a consequence of the above, workation (working vacation) has emerged as a new trend in the world of remote work.  When you take a working vacation, you take a break not entirely from work itself, but from your traditional workspace and work structure allowing employees to improve their work-life balance keeping them energized and motivated which are the best factors to improve their productivity.

According to a survey, 37% of global travelers have considered booking a destination trip for work.

There is a new concept of travel that emerged during the pandemic called “travel less, travel better”, And the best of luxury travel is undoubtedly creating a personalized experience.

According to a recent study by Virtuoso for YouGov found that 80% of travelers would spend more on brands that tailor products to them.  This personalization starts even before the guests arrive at their vacation destination by offering them specific services to their personal needs.

Guests can ask for the organization of a special event, personalized excursions to close-by destinations, romantic dining experiences, activities for kids or “kids clubs”, leisure activities for adults, or any other concierge services that are mandatory to adapt to the traveler’s needs in 2022.

That is why at Marbella Mountain Resorts we offer a concierge service to all our clients so that they can enjoy the most complete personalization of services during their vacation, without any hustle. You travel to enjoy yourself, we will take care of the rest.

As the number of billionaires grows according to Forbes, and COVID-19 has added to incentives for avoiding crowds, the multi-billion-dollar global luxury boat industry is rebounding fast after near-paralysis at the onset of the pandemic. Some have seen that their ultra-rich friends who own yachts and a Luxury Villa had a nice time during the pandemic, while they had to lock themselves at city apartments!

The younger generation—Millennials are tending towards charting a superyacht rather than owning, finding its origin in the sharing culture and economy we currently experience. They like to be users of everything but owners of nothing. This generation value to be debt free, and not having any responsibilities

In Marbella Mountain Resorts we offer our clients the opportunity to rent their own luxury yacht or speed boat with exclusive onboard services during their vacation. Our Luxury packages include accommodation in one of our luxury villas, luxury yatchs, private jets and helicopter service.
