A Safari Lodge in South Africa
One of our luxury custom travel consultants bought out Richard Branson’s Ulusaba Private Game Reserve for two nights for a family of 17—ages 13 to 57—as part of a custom itinerary she produced for them. During their stay at Ulusaba, which borders Kruger National Park in South Africa’s northeastern Mpumalanga province, guests enjoyed private helicopter flight-seeing excursions, twice-daily game drives, daily walking safaris and gourmet meals—with plenty of interesting, engaging and relaxing diversions in between.
A Boutique Hotel in Bali
Boutique hotels are luxury properties with a handful of well-appointed rooms, suites or villas. They tend to occupy smaller footprints, but do not lack for space, style or service. They can be a nice alternative to larger brand-name accommodations, without having to sacrifice amenities. One of our travel consultants built a nine-day privately-guided itinerary with a wildlife focus for a guest traveling solo through Bali. She booked him into the Shunyata Villas Bali, a gorgeous three-villa boutique hotel located on a beach in the middle of Bali’s eastern coast. Highlights of this property include individual infinity pools, private outdoor spaces and sun decks, open-air lounges, optional open-air bathrooms with large indoor and outdoor raindrop showers, and romantic gardens. Shunyata Villas Bali would be a perfect buyout for three singles or three couples traveling together on a custom itinerary through Indonesia.
