If there is that one special person you need to meet when seeking inspiration for your next extraordinary travel experience, it is Jules Maury. As the child of ex-pat parents and later as an expat wife herself, she has lived in and travelled to more places in the world, ranging from Hong Kong to Switzerland, France, Australia and Vietnam and more, than most of us could even place on a map. Always, as one would expect, in considerable style. Since joining Scott Dunn and now leading Scott Dunn Private, she likes nothing better than using her wealth of experience and personal contacts to match the perfect unique travel experience to each of her guests, many of whom she is proud to now count as friends.
When asked to recommend her favourite destination she is challenged, as there are so many special and unique places she has visited, both personally and professionally. Her passion to anticipate what will please each specific guest has always meant that wherever she may be, she is imagining who will share her love of that particular place, sensational “room with a view”, or individually curated experience. It is her skill in identifying the best possible choice of these to recommend to her guests, that is Jules’s intuitive strength, underpinned by the secrets of all the “special relationships” reflected in her very personal Private Notebook, which she uses to select each unique hotel, fabulous restaurant and amazing guide, that is the perfect match for each of her Scott Dunn Private guests.
Some of the challenges she has been set by her discerning and demanding guests have at times taxed even her extraordinary imagination and the Private Notebook, but Jules can always be relied on to create magical experiences for any occasion, such as The Birthday resulting in a steadily increasing list of happy guests. Her years in luxury travel, and the coveted accolade of being identified as one of the Condé Nast’s “Top Travel Specialists” two years running in 2019 and 2020, are testament to her exceptional skills in continuing to delight and surprise her many loyal guests all over the world.
