No clue where to jet off to next? Let the stars be your travel guide in this article from Marriott Traveler.
Over generations, each sun sign — also known as your star sign — has become associated with certain personality traits and preferences. Leos love to be the center of attention; they’re lions, after all. Virgos are practical and detail oriented. Born under the war god Aries? You’re likely fiery and opinionated.
If you’re stumped as to where your next vacation should be; consider these suggestions that fall in line with the stars.
As always, check for travel restrictions and closures before planning your trip.
Lover of adventure and excitement, Aries (March 21 to April 19); will often look for challenging travel situations. Like visiting a country with a different native language or a particularly far-flung destination. Zambia is ideal for Aries.
What’s more adrenaline pumping than tracking white rhinos with safari guides or braving the Class V rapids at stunning Victoria Falls; one of the world’s Seven Natural Wonders? Set up camp at the Protea Hotel by Marriott Livingstone. There you can head off on a game drive at nearby Chobe National Park. And then enjoy local cuisine at on-site Livingstone Restaurant.
Decadence, luxury, elegance — in other words that’s all Taurus (April 20 to May 20), all day. They love bucolic, relaxing, soothing surroundings when they travel. And Costa Rica is the perfect spot for bulls to spend time watching the ocean, relaxing in nature and eating delicious food.
The JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort & Spa is right on the Pacific Ocean. Therefore, it offers incredible panoramic vistas from its hacienda-style rooms. At the spa, enjoy a full array of serene wellness offerings; many of which incorporate the rich plants and minerals indigenous to the Costa Rican rain forest.
Represented by the twins, Gemini (May 21 to June 20) is the friendliest, most playful and most curious zodiac sign; they’re gregarious and always looking to have a good chat over coffee with their favorite people.
New Zealand is often listed among the world’s friendliest countries to travel to, so Gemini will be sure to make some new pals on a visit to this Pacific nation. Hang your hat in the middle of the action at the Four Points by Sheraton Auckland, close to many of the city’s lively points of interest, including Aotea Square, Auckland Town Hall and Classic Comedy & Bar.
Sweet, sensitive Cancers (June 21 to July 22) are always looking for a warm fire to curl up in front of with their favorite book or a deep conversation with someone they love. Cancers are masters of hygge, and where better to learn the “art of coziness” than in the Nordic country of Finland.
At the deliciously comfy Hotel Katajanokka, Helsinki, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Cancers can enjoy adorably decorated rooms in a historic redbrick building that is walking distance from the city’s market square, Seurasaari Open-Air Museum and more.
Always red-carpet ready, Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) is the leader we all need and want. Leos are more than willing to accept their place as kings and queens of the desert, and Dubai is where these vivacious and theatrical creatures should head next.
Full of opulence and visual interest, the Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel & Suites, right on the waterfront, is perfect for Leos. Spend your stay in a luxurious one-, two- or three-bedroom suite with marble bathroom, and then make an entrance at one of the hotel’s three dynamic restaurants.
Nothing brings out Virgo’s (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) nurturing, grounded earth sign personality like spending time in nature. While they can be logical and systematic to a fault, Virgos feel most at home when enjoying the outdoors, so Vancouver is the perfect travel spot for them.
Start the day at the beautiful JW Marriott Parq Vancouver enjoying its incredible mountain views. It’s a perfect jumping-off point for a visit to Granville Island, a hike around Grouse Grind and mountain biking along the North Shore.
Balance, harmony and peace are practically all that Libras (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) want in life. They love equilibrium and calm, especially in romance and relationships. Mérida, the capital of the Mexican Yucatan peninsula, balances culture and elegance with an array of museums, art galleries and theaters.
Boutique hotel Rosas & Xocolate, Mérida, a Member of Design Hotels — a historic baron’s mansion outfitted with modern luxuries — is the perfect spot for Libras to find balance within themselves and with their partners. Luxuriate in a traditional Yucatan spa treatment, or simply unwind with dinner and drinks at the hotel’s Moon Lounge Bar.
Oft-misunderstood Scorpios (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) are one of the most complicated and emotionally powerful zodiac signs. The seductive and beguiling scorpion fits well into the sexy Montreal scene, where a bustling Canadian metropolis gives way to the elusive and mysterious historic center with plenty of hidden nooks in which to steal a little alone time.
Check into the AC Hotel Montreal Downtown, a sleek, modern hotel with European-inspired amenities and stunning city views.
A true Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) knows no bounds and isn’t afraid to suck the marrow right out of life. Ambitious and adventurous, the archer is always on a quest for knowledge, fun and achievement.
New York City is where Sagittarius feels most alive. Sagittarius will be hard-pressed to find time to rest in the City that Never Sleeps, with its museums, entertainment, fine dining, libraries and bookshops galore.
But when they do rest, it should be at the W New York – Times Square, right in the heart of the city’s Broadway action.
It’s all about the Benjamins for true Capricorns (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19), and they’ve worked hard for it. Caps are experts at navigating finances and enjoying the finer things, provided they’ve planned for them.
Set aside some savings and head to Monaco for your next getaway, and enjoy the fruits of your perseverance, dedication and diligence at work.
Even if spending an evening at the Casino de Monte-Carlo is a little too risky for Capricorns, they’ll still love indulging in the top-class restaurants, entertainment and a few nights at the luxurious Riviera Marriott Hotel La Porte de Monaco.
Represented by the Water Bearer, the mystical healer, this air sign is humanitarian, innovative and shamelessly revolutionary. Aquarians (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) are open-minded and love a good conspiracy, so a trip to Sedona, with its mystical vortexes, makes an excellent getaway for these free thinkers.
Set up at the Courtyard by Marriott Sedona, which reflects the gorgeous red-rock surroundings in its rustic decor and features spectacular mountain views. The hotel also offers a private meditation area and a view deck where you can take in Sedona’s unique energies and beautiful landscape.
The two fish represented by Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) are swimming away from each other, representing the sign’s struggle between fantasy and reality. This duality makes Pisces a perfect fit for the wonderful, complex country of Japan.
Kyoto is Japan’s spiritual capital, and Pisces will find themselves swooning over the mindful, intuitive, sensitive culture of the temple complexes and the quiet, reflective luxury of The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto, set against the picturesque backdrop of the Kamo River.
