As the world slowly emerges from the pandemic, we’re starting to let ourselves daydream about future travel again. Whether that’s a staycation, soon or an international holiday in a year’s time, we’ve teamed up with all-in-one shopping app Klarna to help inspire you to plan your next holiday asap!

One lucky winner will win a $2000 voucher to spend with Luxury Escapes – one of the many websites and online stores where you can use Klarna at check-out, to pay in 4 instalments, interest-free.

There’s literally thousands of accommodations, flights, tours and more to spend your Luxury Escapes voucher on, but if it were us, here’s three places we’d be booking!

Ovolo Woolloomooloo, NSW

Staying at Ovolo Woolloomooloo is a truly unique experience, being housed in an 100-year-old, heritage-protected wharf building right on the water. Hassell architects have completely transformed the site’s existing hotel to appeal to a new generation of guests, while reinvigorating its Finger Wharf location. 

Bridging heritage and modern luxury, the hotel offers five-star boutique accommodation options overlooking the water within walking distance of the CBD. 

Ovolo Woolloomooloo was named the country’s no.1 hotel in Tripadvisor’s Top 10 Hotels In Australia 2019, and is in the top 10 most highly-rated Australian accommodations on the platform. 

Nishi Apartments by Ovolo, ACT

Take a trip to Canberra for a holiday of museums, galleries, good food, history, and exploring the city’s many architectural marvels.

The place to stay is Nishi Apartments inside the Ovolo Nishi hotel, which offers sleek interiors and a location close to all the major attractions.

One of Nishi’s key focuses is sustainability, so the apartments feature cross-flow ventilation to ensure coolness in summer, plus floor heat retention in winter. 

There’s a reason so many people call this the best hotel in Canberra! 

Le Mas Barossa, SA

Enjoy a dreamy escape to Le Mas Barossa, one of the newest luxury accommodations in the Barossa Valley. 

This restored 1857 homestead evokes the romances of southern France’s own famous wine regions. Each of the four guest suites is deeply luxurious inclusive of Hermès products, heated travertine flooring and basins, rain showers and silk curtains. 

Spend your time here relaxing by the heated mineral pool, enjoying the in house hospitality of the hotel’s intimate dining room, L’Orangerie, with its classic French menu featuring ingredients harvested from the kitchen garden, and sampling the extensive cellar list, which features an array of wines from Barossa Valley wineries.
