Luxury travel from expert

One of the best definitions for luxury travel was shared by George Morgan-Grenville: 

“Luxury travel today is defined less by thread count and Michelin stars and more by access to the people, places, and experiences that represent all that is authentic about a destination. There’s no denying that comfort factors still apply and high standards of accommodation and dining will always feature on the luxury traveler’s wish list. However, today’s luxury traveler seeks more depth of understanding and immersion into local culture than ever before. People don’t just want to see – they want to participate. The sales process is also critical and whilst the online proposition can be an asset in terms of booking more simple arrangements, clients looking for luxury experiential travel requires a deep level of sophisticated knowledge and confidence during the sales process.”

The chefs start with fine ingredient and finish with a fare of culinary art.   It is also special that you make reservations for lunch at 12.00 or 14.00 and dinner at 18.00 – 21.00 and set where to eat as your preference which can be in the dining room or own décor. Visitors can view the exotic tropical scenery while eating.
