What is the next big luxury travel trend?
We firmly believe it is signature experiences which are unique and unable to be replicated by other operators that involve amazing scenery, a degree of adventure, amazing regionally-focused produce and unique modes of transport.
What is your own personal litmus test for whether a property is worthy of the 'luxury' tag?
I think it is the 'at ease' test where the service is friendly and seamless with the surroundings being uncompressing, but not ostentatious. Simply, a place where your requests are met with an air of efficiency and effortless ease.
Apart from your own, what are your favourite hotels/resorts? (and why)
Blanket Bay in New Zealand as the location is breathtaking, the service is outstanding and the architecture is both powerful and relaxing with an amazing range of wonderful experiences.
