Luxury Escapes: The World’s Best Holidays returns

After two successful seasons, Luxury Escapes: The World’s Best Holidays is set to return to Australian screens for a third season, airing at 6pm, Saturdays from 14 July on Network 10.


The 13-part travel series, which is produced by Australia’s largest luxury holiday site, Luxury Escapes, in partnership with American Express, follows presenters Sophie Falkiner and Shane Jolley as they explore 22 destinations -- from the pristine shoreline of the Maldives to the desert plains of Kenya.


Together, they visit some of the world’s most coveted hotels and restaurants whilst enjoying bucket-list experiences. The show, much like, is guaranteed to entice viewers to travel near and far, from the comfort of their home.


Each destination featured on the show will be matched with unbeatable deals online, enabling holiday-makers to relive the experience for themselves at some of the world’s most revered hotels.


Co-host, Sophie Falkiner commented: “Shane and I have been so incredibly privileged to travel the world and experience things I could only ever dream of before. From making the most of our own backyard, to exploring the islands of Fiji, to living it up in Las Vegas and beyond, we’ve been truly spoilt with an array of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. I can’t wait to share it all with the rest of Australia.”


Adam Schwab, Managing Director, Luxury Escapes commented: “We’ve been blown away by the success of the show’s first two seasons and are delighted for its return. This season will be bigger and better than ever -- it encompasses the world's best hotels and a world of incredible experiences, offering inspiration for all types of travellers.”
