You know you’ve really “arrived” when you can ditch the standard taxi-transfer from the airport, and rock up at your luxury hotel in a manner that James Bond would be proud of.
In keeping with this idea, we try to inject your holiday with the wow-factor well before you reach your hotel - and preferably, before you've even landed. So, if you want to arrive in style, let us know and we can dream you up the transfer to end all transfers.
Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman
Spectacular mountain range will greet you as you swoop down over Six Senses Zighy Bay in Oman: accompanied by your guide in a paraglider, and with pods of dolphins heralding your arrival.
The Standard High Line, New York
With stunning views over the Hudson River, and the achingly-cool meatpacking district on its doorstep, The Standard High Line will have you well and truly hooked on New York. However, if you want a little breather from the city, you can hail their bright red seaplane, and hit The Hamptons in style.
Watch this space for our Luxury Holidays in North America. They’ll be touching down sooner than you think…
Pacuare Lodge, Costa Rica
Feel the spray on your face as you raft some of the world’s most exhilarating rapids, and get a preview of Costa Rica’s mesmerising wildlife as you make your way to Pacuare Lodge.
Duba Plains, Botswana
Light aircraft is literally the only way to arrive at the remote Duba Plains which is totally surrounded by Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Gliding over this watery world, you’ll not only have a real ‘Out of Africa Experience,’ but have amazing views of elephants wading through the marshes.
Palazzina Grassi, Venice
There are few things more chic than cruising down Venice’s Canal Grande in a 1962 Celli speedboat – and so you don’t disrupt the glamour, the Philippe Starck-designed Palazzina Grassi lets you check in whilst you’re still on the boat.
