Some people believe that luxury travel is expensive and restricted to the elite, but the great news is that there are many luxury experiences that can be enjoyed on a budget.
Luxury travel is typically determined by experience, rather than destination, whether it be by the beach or up in the mountains, in a city or in a remote area. It is the experience that matters.
So, without further ado, here are 5 luxury experiences to enjoy on a budget.
1. Luxury Hotels in Malaysia
Malaysia has affordable five-star resorts all over the country – even in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s capital city. There is a whole range of different luxury resorts and five-star hotels starting at less than $150 per night. Some include AVANI Sepang Resort and Thistle Port Dickson Resort. Both provide luxuries that would cost much more anywhere else.
2. Lavish Massages in Thailand
If you’re ever in Thailand, an hour-long massage is so cheap, you could have one daily and never break the bank. Places like 7SPA Luxury in Phuket are made to relax your body and your soul – incorporating programs for face and body, anti-stress and anti-aging, rehabilitation and wellness for the whole family.
3. Fine dining in Bali
Bali is one of the places in the world where you get the most value for money. A luxury fine dining experience is completely affordable and something everyone should do in Bali.

4. Airbnbs in Portugal
Airbnb in Portugal is cheap. And everything else in Portugal is cheap as well: food, wine, transport and activities. At an average of $80 a night with Airbnb, Portugal can offer you any luxury your heart desires, for a very affordable price.
5. A weekend in Las Vegas
Las Vegas is known for its countless casinos. And because of this, accommodation in Las Vegas is surprisingly inexpensive, as hotels try and get people through their door. Five-star hotels are as cheap as $200 a night, even on the famous strip. Best of all, they have all the luxuries you need – just don’t spend all the money saved on the betting floor.
These are just some luxury experiences that can be enjoyed on a budget around the world.
