Award-winning Luxury Vacations
Creating a unique vacation experience has never been easier. By taking the time to truly understand your interests and how you like to travel we can arrange a customized, luxurious vacation that’s right for you. But we all need a bit of inspiration now and again so come and discover some of our most popular types of vacation and start dreaming about your next trip away.
Thinking about planning a safari vacation to South Africa or an adventure packed vacation around Japan? Perhaps a lazy escape to a tropical island like the Maldives or the Greek Islands where you can dine under the stars, or a fabulous ski vacation in the Italian Alps? Organising a vacation by deciding what type of getaway you want is a great place to start. These ideas have been selected by our leading travel specialists and their extensive personal knowledge. After all, choosing a vacation should be an exciting experience, not a minefield.
Vacation time is precious. Especially since it’s the one time you get to truly bond as a family and do what you enjoy best, together. Traveling through the eyes of a child can be magical, giving you the chance to share extraordinary experiences together that you’ll talk about for years to come. From adrenaline-fueled sports and wildlife encounters to family-friendly luxury beach resorts and mountain retreats, our unparaleled local knowledge and customized approach means your vacation will be perfectly crafted to suit you and your family.
When you think of Africa, no doubt a vivid picture springs to mind. Endless plains teeming with wildlife, vast landscapes with a never-ending horizon, white sandy beaches with crystal clear waters, and romantic nights under star-studded skies? Our African safari experts know this incredible continent inside out which makes them the perfect people to help you plan an unforgettable trip.
Imagine yourself staying in a barefoot hideaway on a powder-white tropical beach, island hopping in Croatia. Or, picture yourself enjoying your morning latte with a view across azure Caribbean waters that look like they’ve been photoshopped. If you’re dreaming of vacations on the beach, just let us know your wishlist and we’ll create the perfect trip for you.
Food and drink have the power to reveal the soul of a place. The plum and cedar notes of a fine South African red; the fluffiest Bengali-style potatoes; a simple picnic of yielding Saint-Nectaire with crunchy bread and cornichons; the zing of fresh chilies on the tongue; the merry din of a bustling Thai market. A culinary vacation is a sensual safari that evokes memories, binds people together and teases out your adventurous side.
Planning your next great escape? Celebrating a life milestone? Perhaps you just want to treat yourself.
