Private jets are for the boldest travelers who desire new heights of luxury. If this sounds like you, we’ve got your guide to the top five places to travel in your chartered private jet from Luxury Rental Directory.
1. Cote d’Azur
The glimmering blue waters and high, rocky Mediterranean coasts of southeast France are brimming with reasons to fly in—starting with the aerial view. You might be coming for Cannes or for the storied casinos of Monte Carlo, Monaco, that have earned the French Riviera its reputation as a glamorous playground for the wealthy and elite. Or, perhaps you’re visiting the culturally erudite cities of Marseille and Nice. And despite the coast’s rapid development over the past few years, it still retains pockets of mystery and seclusion, such as in the medieval-era villages scattered throughout the region or the numerous secluded islands off the shore.
Don’t bother looking for a single plain and simple feature in Moscow: this is an appropriately opulent destination for private jet travel. Only Moscow would boast a civic building like the Kremlin, which is the seat of central government but has nothing staid about it, from its brilliantly lit interior to its colorful crown of minarets. Take in the city’s hundreds of years’ worth of rich and turbulent history as you walk the streets—an especially transporting experience when Moscow is covered in snow—or enjoy the nighttime view from one of its exquisite luxury hotel rooms. If you’re only in for a night, you’ll be remiss to skip out on the city’s pulsating club scene.
3. West Palm Beach
West Palm Beach is one of the more popular private jet destinations. Visit when you prefer something quieter and more sophisticated than in-your-face Miami, the glitz and glamour of which sometimes overshadows the charms of West Palm Beach with its miles of waterfront and deep blue water. This is the place for a rejuvenating, relaxing vacation filled with shopping on Clematis Streets, playing golf, fishing, jet skiing and boating. And in such proximity to the Caribbean, West Palm Beach is a perfect home base for island-hopping.
4. Necker Island
If you’re traveling by private jet, you at some point need to pay homage to aviation pioneer Richard Branson and visit Necker Island, his home in the British Virgin Islands, which doubles as an exclusive resort for jetsetters like you. This pristine tropical hideaway is accessible only by private jet, which makes for the ultimate getaway to end all getaways. While on Necker Island, enjoy cocktails on your suite’s private deck or relax in an infinity edge pool that makes you feel as though it’s just you and the ocean. Visitors to Necker Island can also kite-surf, paddleboard and boat at their leisure. If you’ve been looking for Paradise on Earth, you’ve found it.
5. St. Kitts and Nevis
Another hidden Caribbean gem, St. Kitts and Nevis are secluded in the Leeward Islands, which are little-traveled enough to retain some of the region’s wildness. Few commercial flights travel this way, but accessing St. Kitts and Nevis from stateside is as swift as a trade wind. This region of the Caribbean is too exquisite to be missed, especially when you factor in a stay at the Four Seasons St. Kitts and Nevis resort, where you’ll enjoy golf, luxury spa access and fine dining. From the highest point of the island, you’ll see a breathtaking view of its lush palms, white sands and turquoise lagoons.
