What is Luxploration?!

What is Luxploration?

Luxploration is travel trend making its way across the pond and is the idea that travellers relish exciting adventures but don’t want them to be too hard-core. “Travellers want to come home to plush amenities after they leap off cliffs,” (HotelMarketing.com).

They follow the view that – this is a holiday, after all, so a bit of pampering is required and we can’t help but agree at the Splendid Hospitality Group.

“The concept of a ‘home away from your home’ is back in vogue,” says Louise Gee, Cluster Sales Manager at The Grand Hotel & Spa, York’s only 5 Star hotel.”


“We have launched a special Sunday lunch offer to bring this idea home to people who want to explore the delights of York but who then want to return to a plush hotel with  stellar food and service to go with it.”

“Guests can make our home their home – without the need to do a thing. The experience comes with TV, DVD player, Nintendo Wii and a stack of traditional board games.  We look after the rest, like the three course Sunday lunch with all the trimmings.”


Building memories and experiences are the key reason behind most trips and we love to help build these at the Splendid Hospitality Group.

Vanbrugh House Hotel, a boutique hotel in the heart of Oxford and part of the Splendid Hospitality Group has partnered with long time Oxford resident Isabella Underhill, to celebrate the Year of Literary Heroes by offering bespoke walking tours of hidden Oxford.  Guests can then retreat back to the hotel and enjoy the experience of its sumptuous double roll top baths in the XX suite.


After a busy day of exploring London and its attractions. Hilton London Bankside a hotel part of the Splendid Hospitality Group have just launched Spa To You – a brand new wellness space for its guests.

The two new treatment rooms compliment the swimming pool and gym and offer anything from traditional Chinese medicine practice Tui Na to Hot Lava Shell massage.  Indulge in a facial from Caudalie and Bee Good – inspired by honey made from the rooftop beehives at the hotel.   A calming sanctuary in the heart of Bankside.
