Billionaires are seeking out the unknown and the exclusive, from off-the-beaten-path Kyrgyzstan to Nicaragua, newly removed from the FCO travel warning list. They're also looking to set sail, opting for intimate luxury cruises in far-flung destinations like the Maldives and Antarctica.

While they seem to have a taste for the exotic, they're also headed to the Middle East and Europe to visit a few more well-travelled countries.

With Nicaragua removed from the FCO travel warning list in 2019, it's set to welcome international visitors once again, Tom Barber, co-founder of Original Travel, told Business Insider. "Nicaragua has everything that we love so much about Costa Rica, but with fewer tourists and — as it's the largest country in Central America — more space to get off the beaten track," he said.

Its city of Granada has an edge over cities in neighbouring countries, he added, for its colonial appeal, pastel-coloured baroque buildings, and rich Spanish architecture.

Barber foresees an increase in tourism in Uzbekistan next year since it ditched its visa requirements for travellers from 45 countries including the UK. As such, he expects more intrepid travellers looking for somewhere untouched will head to neighbouring Kyrgyzstan. 

The country is home to mountains, Silk Road sites, and nomadic culture. "We're seeing a rise in people wanting to go off-grid, digitally detox, and taste the kind of wilderness that is as yet still untouched, untamed, and untainted by tourism," Amelia Stewart, brand ambassador for Original Travel, told Business Insider. "Kyrgyzstan ticks those boxes, and also makes a fantastic combination tour with neighbouring Uzbekistan. It's a country on the cusp of discovery but not for much longer."

Original Travel has seen a 396% increase in bookings in the Maldives for 2020, Barber said. It's largely because of the luxurious Four Seasons Explorer, a floating resort that only hosts a maximum of 22 guests. 

Original Travel and Four Seasons teamed up to send the luxury catamaran to the remote southern atolls for the first time, hopping across the Maldives' most secluded islands and exploring some of the least visited dive sites, Barber said.

The Maldives is also home to plenty of luxury resorts. Baros Maldives, which includes 77 ultra-luxurious villas, has been dubbed the "World's Most Romantic Resort" by World Travel Awards for four years in a row, and six times total, reported Business Insider's Katie Warren. And the adults-only Kudaadoo Maldives Private Island was named the best new luxury hotel of 2019.
