– The top five up and coming villa vacation destinations for 2020 have been
announced by Villas of Distinction®, the world’s premier luxury
villa rental company as part of World Travel Holdings. Based on increased
bookings in these destinations, the list includes — Grand Cayman, Sicily, St.
Martin, Orlando and Jamaica.
Cayman – Villas of
Distinction is not the only company seeing Grand Cayman as an up and coming
destination. Based on booking data from American Express cardholders, Grand
Cayman is also one of their trending destinations to watch for in 2020, up 33
percent year-over-year*. View villas in Grand Cayman.
Sicily – “We are seeing a trend of travelers,
especially ones who have already visited Italy, moving away from traveling to
the more traditional regions,” Steve Lassman, vice president of villa product
& agency relations. “With Sicily being the largest Italian island, it
offers travelers an array of activities from archaeological sites, popular
beaches, and mild climate to history, good cuisine and a vibrant nightlife.’” View villas in Sicily.
3. St. Martin –There is a resurgence in travel to St. Martin after it was impacted by Hurricane Irma. It had a setback and now it is a comeback destination. The Dutch side of the island even has new attractions like the Rainforest Adventures Rockland Estate and Topper's Rhum Distillery, and stayover arrivals are up 144 percent over 2018 year to date.**View villas in St. Martin.
Jamaica – “While Jamaica is always a popular
destination for us, the trend we are seeing here is increased interest in the
south coast of the island, and as a result of this, we are adding more villas here
this year,” said Lassman. “The south coast of Jamaica’s appeal is its relative
isolation. Travelers to this area will find nature, wildlife and tranquil
beaches. The most popular area is Treasure Beach, home to a string of Jamaican
fishing villages resting on black sand.” View villas in Jamaica.
Orlando – Orlando continues to be an up and
coming destination in the villa arena. So many families travel in large groups
when visiting Orlando whether it be multi-generational travel or family
reunions, and villas offer the space, privacy, amenities and value families are
looking for. This has become such a popular option that new villas are
continuously coming into the Orlando market, and the offerings and amenities
are truly top notch. View Villas in Orlando.
