Special Occasions

Big birthdays, anniversaries, graduations: milestone events give you the perfect excuse to whisk kith and kin away to an exotic location for a celebration on steroids. How about a family reunion at a private house and observatory in a South Africa wildlife reserve? Snorkelling with turtles off the Galapagos Islands before a gourmet birthday dinner on your private yacht? Memories are out there for the making.

So far we've planned weddings at palazzos, helped families summit Mt. Kilimanjaro, coordinated a mum and daughter graduation getaway to see gorillas in Rwanda, even arranged a private Valentine's dinner party in the Temple of Luxor surrounded by 5,000 candles. We do it all, from extra-special experiences to start to finish productions. Simply get in touch, tell us what you have in mind and let us take care of the rest.

Bold, bright and beautiful

Coveted coastlines, colorful culture and Carnival, Central & South America is made for celebrating.

Galapagos in luxury

Whisk your family away on this small but super-luxurious yacht to cruise the Galapagos archipelago. Head ashore to explore in the company of world class naturalists, get closer to marine life in your glass-bottomed kayak, and marvel as dolphins ride the bow wave. The MV Origin has been built using eco-friendly, zero emission materials and is elegantly furnished to make it perfect for any special occasion.

Wildlife heaven at Playa Cativo

Are you a wildlife lover? Escape to this upscale, ultra-private eco-hideaway surrounded by 35,000 acres of Piedras Blancas National Park--one of the last remaining stretches of pristine lowland forest in Central America. While away your time on hikes through the rainforest, marvel at waterfalls, and make your way through your checklist of the 350 bird species that abound here.

The romance of rail

Sip Champagne and watch the drama of the Peruvian Andes sweep by from the comfort of your luxury train carriage. One of the world's highest train journeys and dripping with romance and culture, this rail journey with bragging rights was made for lovers.

Fit for a Maharaja

From glorious powder-pink Jaipur to the languid charms of Kerala, India is chock-full of extra-special ways to spoil yourself and your loved ones.

Private houseboat on Kerala backwaters

Set sail on your private family houseboat and cruise Kerala's tranquil backwaters for an extra-special Indian odyssey. Soak up the sights and sounds of Keralan life as you drift by before dining on delicious local dishes as prepared by your crew.

Romantic pontoon dinner in India

Celebrate an anniversary or pop the question over a romantic dinner while you float on a pontoon on Lake Pichola in Udaipur. Guaranteed to be a highlight of your extra-special vacation to colorful, vibrant and oh-so magical India.

Guided walk through the bazaars of Jaipur

Jaipur is a shoppers paradise. Mingle with local artisans in bustling alleyways and bazaars in the heart of rose-tinted Jaipur. Once the world's gemstone capital, Jaipur is the perfect place in which to pick up a sparkly bauble or two (you can even have a piece of jewelry made just for you). Then enjoy a romantic stroll through the historic gardens of the famous Rambagh Palace and learn about Maharajas gone by.

Explore in the Maharaja's vintage car

Take a vintage car from the Maharaja's personal collection for a spin through Udaipur's romantic serpentine lanes, marveling at the architecture and perhaps stopping off to snag yourself a ridiculously soft cashmere shawl along the way. Then leave the bustling city behind and drive up along winding hillside roads until you reach an ornate palace where you'll dine on the rooftop terrace and soak up the staggering views of the illuminated city below.
