Amber Hopkins

My passion for travel was kindled at an early age when vacationing with my family – experiencing safari in South Africa, witnessing the geothermal wonders of Iceland, and multiple USA road trips to name but a few – eventually underpinning my decision to read Geography at University and pursue a career in travel.

I’ve since avidly explored even more of our wonderful world, and have been fortunate to have lived for three amazing years in beautiful Sydney, Australia. Next on my to-do list is South America as I’m yet to explore this vast and diverse continent - can’t wait! I really enjoy assisting my guests’ with their travel plans, particularly when I inspire them to explore somewhere new and unexpected.

Travel nuggets

  • When in Sydney, splash out on a seaplane flight from Rose Bay to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park for a delicious lunch at the delightful Cottage Point Inn – if you’re lucky their resident kookaburra will make an appearance!
  • If in Volcanoes National Park, Big Island Hawai’i, make sure you time your visit so you’re at Kilauea Volcano at sunset, as walking over the lava fields and seeing it glow beneath your feet is an absolutely incredible experience.
  • If planning an east coast USA vacation, flying via Iceland for 4 or 5 days is an excellent stopover – relax in geothermal waters at the Blue Lagoon, witness the majesty of the Gullfoss waterfall, and marvel at the breathtaking volcanic scenery.

My hot picks

COMO Shambhala Estate,Ubud, Bali

Ideal if you’re looking for a tropical retreat to relax and rejuvenate. The raw food menu is extremely unique, and the Hot River Stone Massage amazing!

Shangri-La Le Touessrok,East Coast, Mauritius

This beautiful property holds sentimental value for me as it’s where I got engaged, but that aside I still love it! Fantastic cuisine, incredibly friendly staff, and taking the complimentary boat across to their private island is a real highlight.

Twin Farms,Vermont, New England

For when you want to immerse yourself in a remote, lush green environment, where you can totally and utterly relax (and be extremely well fed!) A truly exceptional experience.
