Luxury city breaks in Latvia
Latvia’s dynamic capital Riga brings together gleaming commerce with renowned Jugendstil treasures and rolling parkland. As you are taken on your own customised walking tour of the Central District, every third façade echoes the luxurious Art Nouveau of fin-de-siècle Paris. Scale St Peter’s at sunset for a perfect panorama of this cosmopolitan metropolis, the horizon glittering with the onion domes of fresco-ceilinged and icon-filled Orthodox churches. Your eye feasts on the luxury of Riga’s verdant expanses, the cascades of Arkadijas Park and the Tsar Forest, landscaped for the Romanov royals.
Luxury beach breaks in Latvia
Summer means spectacular midnight sunsets, dramatically offset by the fine white sands of Jurmala on the Baltic Riviera. Grand dachas, distinctive wooden villas and writers’ retreats have greeted discerning visitors since Tsarist officers sojourned in the luxury of its healing spa waters. The beaches of Majori and Bulduri today sport the blue flags of eco-friendly approval, fringed by aromatic pine forest and nature trails.
Luxury retreats in the Latvian countryside
Lagoons dot the wetlands of the Kemeri National Park, known for its therapeutic springs and rare bird life. Enjoy the luxury of solitude and spot sea eagles, black storks and eagle owls hovering over elks and wolves. Opulent baroque mansions dot Latvia’s plains, the noble winter retreat of Jelgava and the summer palace of Rundale where today Latvia accommodates visiting dignitaries and heads of state.
Enjoy a luxury hotel stay in Latvia with Small Luxury Hotels of the World and step out from your designer hideaway right into the Riga’s Art Nouveau heart, and relax with spa treatments like a healing massage in wine-grape oil.
