The 5 Best Places to Host Private Events in 2022

Melbourne, Australia

Those that had to put their journey down under on the back burner due to COVID are eager to get back to Australia. Melbourne is getting ready to welcome back visitors to the cultural capital of the continent in 2022 with culinary and architectural delights.

In 2022 many great hospitality properties opened to coincide with Australia’s re-opening to international travelers in February. A new Ritz-Carlton hotel will open in the central business district this year. Local chef Scott Pickett has worked on experimental food concepts at Higher Order.

Bucharest, Romania

Romania has become the new place to visit in Europe. The country is full of monasteries and storybook villages located alongside the Danube. Romania is also a convenient add-on city for an itinerary that includes nearby Croatia or Montenegro. Those fascinated by the legend of Bram Stoker’s Dracula may wish to host a themed event around the legendary tale.

In the capital of Bucharest, there are many grand five-star hotels. New luxury hotels such as the Marmorosch opened last year to help bring the city back to its former glory. In the countryside, guests can have many great excursions including truffle hunting. The bespoke agency Beyond Dracula has many signature tours to help visitors discover Romania.

Newport, Rhode Island

Fans of the fantastic period drama Gilded Age may wish to pay a visit to its setting. The city is also within reasonable driving distance from many northeast cities including Boston, Philadelphia, and New York, which makes it a great destination for an event.

This historic city in Rhode Island is an outstanding place to host a private event any time of year. To get the most for your money, host your event in one of the shoulder seasons, which is generally March through May and October through December. Vanderbilt is a wonderful historic hotel that will unveil 33 redesigned rooms in 2022. In May, the Sailing Museum opens with interactive exhibits surrounding the America’s Cup boats.

Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are the holy grail of wildlife experiences and are considered a bucket list adventure by many. Now that international travel is opening, many hope to return to the archipelago.

It goes without saying that activities here include marine life and water activities. Cruise lines such as Silversea Cruises debuted the Silver Origin in June 2021. The ship contains many luxurious amenities including complimentary champagne and caviar, and 24-hour room service. For those interested in family trips, Relais & Chateaux ships will debut in December with many itineraries focused on children and teens, as well as cultural exchanges.


Singapore has become a popular destination in recent years. During the pandemic, when other countries locked down completely, Singapore had many travel corridors and became COVID-resistant. The country has become a great destination for travelers interested in health and wellness. The country also has become the premier green destination as a bonus. The National Orchid Garden will transport you to an unbelievable mountain rainforest.

The hospitality options in Singapore are in tandem with wellness and green interests. The Pan Pacific Hotel is a zero-waste property full of beautiful lush balconies, manicured gardens, and a rooftop lawn with mirror pools. For the ultimate in luxury, have your group trip at the Raffles Sentosa Resort & Spa, and get pampered on this island full of native flora.
