Stays of Distinction - Worldwide



Also visit VIP Luxury Touring Ideas. Goway Stay of Distinction.

As a travel company, we deal with and are aware of thousands of hotels world-wide. Obviously we only decide to include in our programmes those hotels which meet our standards and requirements. However, there are hotels which are outstanding, not just because they are deluxe standard or expensive but because they are special. Goway selects and offers designated hotels under the exclusive banner “Stays of Distinction” in the South Pacific, Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe.

Not every selected hotel follows the same criteria for selection. The contributing factors could be any of the following. Stunning location, historical landmark, exceptional service and architectural design plus many other considerations.

Let us whet your appetite with a few examples of our “Stays of Distinction”. Imagine a converted Maharaja’s Palace on a hilltop in India, an ex Royal Hunting Lodge in Egypt, a designated seven star property shaped like a sail and reached by a causeway in Dubai, a luxury tented camp in sight of Ayers Rock in the outback of Australia, a hotel located on the Great Barrier Reef off the Australian east coast , and last but not least, a hotel in the middle of a scenic lake around which James Bond of 007 fame chased his adversaries (somewhere in Asia but you will need to see the movie to check this one out! – or just ask us).

Our “Stays of Distinction” properties have been packaged to include not only accommodation but some sightseeing in the destination and meeting and transfer services on a private basis. We suggest, if you want to pamper yourself, you strongly consider one of our selected hotels if there is one in the city or country of your choice.

Take the time to look through Goway’s selection of designated properties.
