The parties from New Year's have just settled down, but we already have our eyes on what trips we want to take this upcoming year. The latest trend in 2023 for luxury travelers is isolation. Here's a closer look.

It seems tourists want to experience unique destinations without having to share them with many other travelers. In 2023, luxury travelers will seek out destinations off the beaten path, according to the Robb Report. They want to go on vacation without the hassle and noise that comes with crowds and popular destinations. Need some ideas to get your isolation vacation started? Here are a few ideas for your next trip. Head to Kenya for a safari vacation. Condé Nast listed the country as one of the best places to travel in 2023. The Angama Mara lodge in Kenya is the ultimate safari destination, and they will open another location in November 2023. The Angama Amboseli will have ten tented suites to choose from and be in the Amboseli National Park.

If the easy European lifestyle is calling to you, then try booking a trip to Mallorca. It is the largest island in Spain's Balearic Islands, just 112 nautical miles away from Barcelona. The island has long been known as a beautiful beach destination. Except now, it is easier than ever to live like a celebrity and experience the white sand beaches, crystal blue water, and Spanish architecture. United Airlines has added a seasonal flight from Newark to Mallorca's capital, Palma. This is the first time a nonstop flight has been introduced to the island, allowing Americans more accessibility to the Spanish island. Another European destination off the beaten path is the city of Melides in Portugal. The Portuguese beach city is also listed in Condé Nast's list of the best places to go in 2023. The lesser-known Melides boasts stunning beaches and majestic forests and is about to become home to the Vermelho hotel, the work of passion of shoe designer Christian Louboutin.

Like Robert Frost, many travelers will be choosing the road less traveled by this year, with isolation travel being the hot new thing. Where are you booking your next getaway?
