Now this is what we call a meal with a view. Found within the Leela Palace hotel in Udaipur, Sheesh Mahal serves Indian cuisine on the shores of Lake Pichola and offers views of the floating Taj Lake Palace hotel, City Palace and Aravalli hills. Fancy giving a try for yourself?

Oh, to live a life of luxury. An easy-breezy 40-minute speedboat ride from the Maldivian capital Malé, the pretty patty-cake-sized island of Naladhu has just 20 villas and one intimate restaurant. As well as ease of access, Naladhu offers privacy, hush-hush service and some splendid white beaches. Sound like something you'd like to try out?

Who wishes they were here right now? On a manicured 17 acres of private island in Venice's southern lagoon, the San Clemente Palace Kempinski is an ideal pampered bolthole if intensive sightseeing in visitor-packed Venice leaves you reeling.

That's right, you can actually sleep here. The hilltop Alila Fort Bishangarh, Rajasthan, is a majestic beast of a hotel with latticed screens, noble turrets and two-metre-thick walls. It took 230 years to restore the hotel, but it could take you just a matter of minutes for you to win a night there.

The Galápagos is probably the most famous wildlife-watching destination in the world.

And no wonder.

It's almost impossible to exaggerate the sheer spectacle of the place that provided inspiration for Charles Darwin's groundbreaking theory of natural selection.

This remote archipelago is a land of stark lava formations, cactus forests, lush green highlands, turquoise bays and quintessential tropical beaches.

But, best of all, it is overflowing with wildlife at every turn. Within minutes, sometimes seconds, of landing on this dot in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, you can be face-to-face with more strangely fearless and curious animals than anywhere else on Earth.

Is this the world's most idyllic place? We think Chianti in Tuscany has to be up there. Writing about the region for the Telegraph, Lee Marshall said: "First-time visitors to the area are often surprised by how untamed much of the landscape is – swathes of holm oak, arbutus, hornbeam, ilex and broom are draped over hills that bristle with wild boar and porcupines. The vines – which take up less than 10 per cent of the total area – draw their resilience from the fact that they need to fight for nutrients with wild nature. Good sangiovese grapes, like good extra vergine olives, and more than a few people, feed on stress."

Malta’s 16th-century citadel capital, the Unesco World Heritage city of Valletta, is one of the European Capitals of Culture 2018. A melting pot of European influences since it was built by the Knights of St John following the Great Siege of 1565, Valletta has long packed a historical and artistic punch well above its weight.

Valletta itself is tiny, a perfect place to wander beneath painted wooden balconies and baroque facades, as well as a few edgier new constructions by Renzo Piano, architect of the London Shard.
