3 Last-minute Destinations Worth Blowing Your Entire Tax Return on

Tax season is upon us here in the U.S. If you played your cards right last year, that (hopefully) means a big tax refund. You could do something sensible with that cash like save for your kids’ college education or fund your 401k. Or you could splurge on a ridiculously unnecessary, bucket list vacation. Assuming you decide on the latter, here are three destinations worth blowing this year’s tax return on.

Sandals Royal Caribbean (Jamaica)

Royal-Carribean

Caribbean resorts tend to be bland, uninspired, and homogenous: swim-up bars, watered-down cocktails, and conga-lining around the late-night chocolate buffet. For years, the Sandals Resort chain has been no different, but their latest Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay is jaw-dropping. It’s proof that you needn’t travel to Bora Bora or Maldives to find stunning overwater bungalows. Every one of the property’s Tahitian-style villa features butler service, floating hammocks, a private infinity pool, glass floors, and two outdoor showers. What’s more: their “all-inclusive” program is actually all-inclusive. Every last thing is included in the $4,300 (USD) nightly rate and, honestly, shouldn’t it be?

Peter Island Resort (Tortola, British Virgin Islands)

Peter-Island

Perhaps an overwater Caribbean villa just isn’t disco enough. If you happen to be a Saudi oil baron or Jay-Z, you might want your own vacation compound. Peter Island Resort is an 1,800-acre private island off the coast of Tortola. While its luxurious oceanfront suites are nothing short of stunning, the real draw for travelers seeking seven-star accommodations is the Falcon’s Nest Villa. This absurd, 21,645-square-foot complex combines six full suites, 10 bathrooms, and offers every imaginable luxury amenity. Think: an infinity pool with a three-story, grotto-style waterfall, a full-time staff (including chef, butler, housekeeper, and a chauffeur), a private spa and gym, and a state-of-the-art media room. Guests can even request a no-fly zone during their stay to keep those pesky paparazzi drones at bay. The nightly rates aren’t publicly available, but, frankly, if you have to ask …

The North Pole (via Quark Expeditions)

Polar

Believe it or not, there are still a few “undiscovered” destinations in the world. If your idea of bucket list travel centers around going where (almost) no one has gone before, check out Quark Expeditions. For almost $30,000 (USD), you can board an elite icebreaker vessel and set sail for the North Pole — maybe the planet’s last pristine outpost. The nuclear-powered 50 Years of Victory takes a limited number of passengers on a 14-day, fully guided round trip tour from Helsinki to Earth’s northernmost reaches. Daily excursions include polar bear spotting, private helicopter rides, and tethered hot air balloon flights — all at 90 degrees north. Until commercial space vacations become mainstream, this is the most “off the beaten path” destination currently available.
