If there is one person you need to meet when seeking inspiration for your next extraordinary travel experience, it is Jules Maury. An avid globetrotter and Head of Scott Dunn Private, Jules has lived all over the world from Hong Kong to South Africa and in more recent years France, Australia and Vietnam. As a testament to her exceptional travel knowledge, Jules has received the coveted accolade of Conde Nast Top Travel Specialist five years running (2019-2023), as well as being named one of the best travel specialists in the world in Robb Report’s inaugural Travel Masters List 2023 and one of the 50 Most Influential People in British Luxury on the annual Walpole Power List 2023. She was also named one of Spear’s 500 Top Recommended Travel Advisors in 2022 and Robb Report’s Best of the Best in travel in 2021.
For Jules, it’s all in the detail and her passion is creating magical experiences for any occasion, elevating a luxury holiday into a truly unforgettable memory. Her unerring ability to find what is new and trending, combined with a black book of contacts that can unlock any door, anywhere, make her an invaluable source of endless travel knowledge to her discerning guests. Think behind-the-scenes access, whether uncovering the Acropolis’s highlights on a private tour with the chief curator or exploring the vast wilderness of Antarctica with an intrepid polar explorer. Her relationships with General Managers, concierges, leading experts, renowned chefs, and local guides ensure her guests receive special insider access to some of the world’s most remarkable places, moments and people. Whatever the request, Jules can make it happen.
When asked to recommend her favourite destination she is challenged, as there are so many unique places she has visited, both personally and professionally. Her passion to anticipate what will please each individual guest has always meant that wherever she may be, she is imagining who will share her love of that particular place, sensational view, or curated experience. Jules regularly travels ahead of her guests, arriving in the destination to ensure each detail is perfect; whether it’s securing the best table at the most talked-about new restaurant or bringing the land of the pharaohs alive with a treasure hunt led by an inspiring Egyptologist. For every single guest, she goes above and beyond to deliver that extra sprinkling of magic.
