As the term “luxury travel” continues to be defined and transformed, The Pursuitist is talking to the leading travel experts as they share the latest trends, innovations and topics in travel. Today, we speak with two experts in the luxury travel industry as they share the emerging trends in travel that they see on the horizon for 2014. Here are the latest luxury travel trends:

“The big question every luxury traveler faces upon returning home in 2014 is: Where did you eat? Foodies are flooding the world with silverware in hand; traveling to eat is one of the most significant travel trends of the year. Among the latest and newest restaurants is Le 6 Paul Bert in Paris, which rounds out a threesome in the city of love, along with the already world-famous Le Bistrot Paul Bert and L’Ecailler du Bistrot. A world away, upon the western coast of South America, the Peruvian cuisine in Lima has captured attention with it’s sumptuous South American cooking, and boasts two new restaurants: Astrid y Gaston and La Mar by the world-famous Gaston Acurio, who has two dozen restaurants around the world. Restaurants are rapidly replacing hotels as the landmark touchstones around the world. As any in-the-know traveler will tell you: The meal is the ticket in 2014.” – from Stacy Steponate Greenberg, @StacyGSG

“Trends for Luxury Travel in 2014? Comfort. Not equated with price but with personalization. Satisfying a travelers pleasure points, be it a grand view, how minibar stocked to avoiding security and checkin lines for flights. Negating what irritates them and enhancing what pleases them. A diver? Reservations on boats to best sites. A choice-all possible from the moment they arrive. Separately and most interesting I am seeing a real trend to what you could call ‘cottaging.’ Back to basics, making jam, rustic settings. Not quite Marie Antoinette playing milkmaid but more a new ‘Arts and Crafts’ movement as last seen in the 1900s post Gilded Age. Will be writing much more about this trend so follow my blog at www.jeannewmanglock.com.” – from Jean Newman Glock, @jeannewmanglock
