This Luxury Australia Vacations: 2017 World Polo Championship vacation was planned for a couple who wanted to catch the world’s most exciting polo tournament in Sydney. They also wanted to get a taste of Australia while they were there, so we gave them some incredible local experiences you can only get in Sydney.

They started their Luxury Australia Vacations: 2017 World Polo Championship vacation with a private transfer to their fabulous hotel, The Langham. While in Sydney, they had some incredible local experiences: surfing on Bondi Beach, lunch at the Opera House, a bike tour of Sydney highlights, and a twilight BridgeClimb where they were treated to 360 views of the city.

They had a full day to see the action at the World Polo Championship tournament. They made plenty of new friends in the crowd while watching incredible polo players from 8 countries. They also loved the vintage car display and fabulous dressage showcase. We arranged a private transfer to and from Sydney, so they were free to revel in the day’s excitement and celebrate their team’s win without worrying about getting back to town.

Next on their Luxury Australia Vacations: 2017 World Polo Championship vacation, they went to a stunning beach retreat north of Sydney to unwind for a few days. At Pretty Beach House, they were treated to exceptional service, delicious gourmet meals, unlimited premium drinks, and beautiful surroundings. Pretty Beach House offers just 4 luxury villas, offering a tranquil and exclusive getaway.

They stayed here for 2 nights of romantic and luxurious bliss. They were welcomed with drinks and an indigenous smoking ceremony. The rest of the time was at their leisure to lounge, hike, golf, go boating on a privately chartered launch, and enjoy heavenly spa treatments. It was the perfect way to end their Luxury Australia Vacations: 2017 World Polo Championship vacation after the hustle and bustle of the city.

At last, it was time to say goodbye to Australia. They enjoyed a private transfer back to Sydney, where they caught their flight back home.
