March 25, 2019 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Scott Dunn introduces ‘Duo Destinations’ – a showcase of two distinctively different places within one exceptional trip. Offering a new way to travel, Scott Dunn’s ‘Duo Destination’ experiences explore a destination through two different lenses, specifically tailored to individual interests. Whether it’s contrasting adventure with relaxation, combining the urban with the rural, or coupling culture with gastronomy – the experiences introduce a dynamic way to get the most out of a single trip. From an unconventional immersion into Indonesia with the impressive World Heritage site of Komodo and the idyllic beaches of Bali – to Cambodia’s vibrant Siem Reap contrasted with the undisturbed island of Koh Rong, these expertly selected marriage of destinations make for unrivalled getaways.

Siem Reap and the Koh Rong Islands, Cambodia

Scott Dunn enables travellers to experience Cambodia’s charming and eclectic Kingdom by coupling a historical city break with a luxurious island decompression – tailoring exclusive experiences of the urban and rural highlights of the country. The itinerary starts at the temple haven of Siem Reap – a slow-paced way to begin the discovery of the country’s culture, led by specialist guides who ensure each temple and ruin is visited at the least busy time of day, including the world-famous Angkor Wat. The first four nights are spent in the Amansara, undeniably the most exclusive hotel in Siem Reap and a tranquil enclave that is encircled by forests and rice paddies. Twinning this city break is a visit to the untouched island of Krabey where guests can unwind in serene natural beauty. The hotly anticipated Six Senses Krabey Island opened its doors last week, an iconic luxury hideaway located on a tiny private island in the Koh Rong Archipelago. With an emphasis on wellness, incorporating Cambodian healing treatments, multi-day rejuvenation journeys and yoga – this is the idyllic decompression after a few days exploring Siem Reap’s temples on foot.

South Africa and Zimbabwe, Africa 

Where city meets safari – Scott Dunn has combined Cape Town’s modern African luxury with the far- flung planes of Zimbabwe. As one of South Africa’s most cosmopolitan cities, Cape Town has various pursuits depending on preferences – from relaxing on the vast, golden beaches to trekking up Table Mountain. In recent years South Africa has become one of the most sought-after culinary destinations with an eclectic food scene and ‘quaffable’ local wine. Offering five-star personalised hospitality, The Cape Grace Hotel is a real Cape Town landmark situated in the heart of the harbour with opulent rooms that showcase the exquisite detail of the hotel. Alternatively, The Silo towers located just above Cape Town boasts a rooftop pool to escape the bustle of the busy city and magnificent views of the architectural restoration of the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa.

After guests have enjoyed the city exploration, it’s a flight to Zimbabwe to visit the Singita Pamushana Lodge. Through Singita’s partnerships with the Zimbabwean non-profit organisation Malilangwe Trust, This intimate eco-lodge has set a new benchmark for luxury safari experiences. Focusing on wildlife sustainability and ecology while harmonising conservation and community, this is one of the world’s most pioneering luxury travel brands which gives an eye-opening guest experience.

Komodo and BaliIndonesia 

Indonesia is one of the world’s largest archipelagos which is so vastly undiscovered. Scott Dunn enables guests to stretch beyond the realms of Bali and extend their trip with a discovery of nearby Komodo, a fascinating juxtaposition to the vibrant and cosmopolitan Balinese lifestyle. Starting the getaway in the Island of Gods, Scott Dunn can tailor a Balinese retreat away from the tourist traps – whether it’s dedicated to surfing, adventure or gastronomy. The recently opened Capella is a luxury tented rainforest resort on the outskirts of Ubud and one of the most sought-after properties on the island – offering an entirely new way to experience Bali. Paying homage to the early 19th Century European settlers, the camp is inspired by nature with a full-service spa and a team of leading chefs to create Indonesian feasts. For a relaxing beach stay, the clifftop Six Senses Uluwatu showcases unrivalled views of the Indian Ocean, just a stone’s throw away from the iconic Uluwatu Temple.

Following Bali, a short flight or boat ride takes guests back in time for an off the beaten track adventure of World Heritage Site, Komodo National Park – the only place to experience a close encounter with the legendary Komodo Dragon. Luxury accommodation at the exclusive and laidback Komodo Resort epitomises Balinese hospitality – sixteen seafront bungalows made in teak wood from local controlled plantations. The resort offers a house reef and what many claim to be the “best diving and snorkelling in the world’’.

Tokyo with HakoneJapan 

Travellers will broaden their horizons in the Land of the Rising Sun with a twin destination trip in Japan – from the energetic lights of Tokyo to the outstanding natural beauty of Hakone. The towering skyscrapers, energy and excitement of Tokyo make the city an intriguing metropolis, with some of the world’s most unique hospitality experiences. The illustrious Aman is centrally located near to Tokyo’s central station – the small and exclusive hotel with traditional distinguished Aman style is an urban sanctuary in the heart of Tokyo. For those seeking a regal destination, The Palace Hotel leads directly into the Imperial Palace gardens, separated by a moat. Whilst in the dazzling city of Tokyo, spa enthusiasts can enjoy the first-ever Evian spa where ‘health water’ is promoted.

Following the Tokyo adventure, Scott Dunn has designed an itinerary to take in traditional Japan with a visit to Hakone to enjoy the breathtaking Japanese landscape. The extraordinary natural beauty of Hakone’s mountainous forest region allows visitors to immerse themselves in Japan’s quintessential tranquillity. As one of Japan’s most luxurious and chic Ryokan’s, Gora Kadan is located in Hakone National Park. Renowned for its ‘onsen’, Hakone’s natural hot water springs from the active volcano and is an essential activity for spa lovers. In the evening, guests can feast on authentic traditional Japanese Kaiseki cuisine.

Kuching and Gaya IslandsMalaysia 

Ideal for a long weekend getaway – on Singapore’s doorstep yet a world apart. Scott Dunn curates a visit to the quaint city of Sarawak, Kuching on the banks of the Sarawak River. This lively city is cradled by the emerald Borneo rainforests and is close to two impressive national parks;; Buko and Kubah and the Semenggok Orangutan Centre. As a city, Kuching has always been an important trading port and is a cultural melting pot that holds a romantic and unlikely history that will charm and endear guests. The Ranee is a boutique hotel located in the heart of the Old Town, converted from two 19th century shophouses, epitomising the Kuching character. For those seeking a contemporary hotel, Pullman is centrally located with panoramic views of Kuching and the Sarawak River. After guests have enjoyed perusing the narrow buzzing streets, it’s only a short flight and boat transfer across to the secluded Gaya Island, located just off the coast of Borneo. This exclusive island is a tropical hideout surrounded by rainforest and a marine national park, nestled into a hillside with seascape views towards Mount Kinabalu. Scott Dunn offers a number of ways to experience the destination as including a visit to the tranquil haven of The Spa Village – with traditional treatments using fresh and local ingredients.
