Robb Report has been providing luxury travel trends since the first launched in 1976. In the last 40 years, the company supplies comprehensive travel guide to the readers, including the hotels and resorts.

Here are the top 5 greatest travel trends that Robb Report featured.

Private-Island Resorts

For the past 20 years, private-island resorts have overwhelmed the market. In 1979, Richard Branson opened the Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands. It offers Balinese-style villas, swimming pools, tennis courts and more than a hundred staff. The resort costs $78,000 per night. Soneva Fushi is a Maldivian private-island resort which goes for $39,000 per night.

Infinity-Edge Pools

In the early years, pools are just old boring rectangular in shape with a small waterfall or a mini grotto. Today, hotels have been offering infinity-edge pool to experience more fun while swimming.

Craft Cocktails

Pre-made mixes, syrupy sweeteners and maraschino cherries are the selection of cocktails in the 1980s. In 2002, a cocktail craze was introduced by award winning Milk and Honey in London. Today, the trend has spiked and bartenders now distill their own brands of cocktail.

Full-Service Spas

Spas are essential amenities today. The first full-service hotel spa opened in North America in 1986. Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas is a 431-room golf resort which provides private facial and massage rooms, steam room, sauna, whirlpool and cold plunge pool for leisure. The facility became a hit and today, a luxury hotel is not indulgent without first-rate spa facility.

Hotel Residences

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in Toronto was one of the first to introduce living in a hotel. The hotel has eight levels for condominiums, bringing the Four Seasons Residential program in 1982 for the first time. The residence became a hit. Today, the concept remains, hotels have 24-hour room service, daily housekeeping, on-call concierges and rental income.
