Finally, the reality of a summer holiday is on the horizon. With most of our destinations no longer asking for pre-travel tests, the world has opened its arms to fully vaccinated travellers. We know how precious your time away is, and we have the best ingredients for a luxury summer getaway. Our team of travel experts and 24/7 luxury concierge service will be with you every step of the way.
Pent-up demand and postponements from last year mean that space is tight. We are keeping a tap on which of our favourite properties, superyachts, and local experts are still available this summer. Here are some of our top five luxury travel trends for summer 2022.
THE FAMILY REUNION
Is it time to get the extended family together? Many of our luxury villas with 5+ bedrooms still have space for July and August. We have handpicked every property in our portfolio, so we know which villas are best suited for families of all ages from tots to grannies. We understand that the prospect of organising large groups with their individual demands feels daunting, and we will take care of all the planning and logistics. Our book of contacts includes the best private chefs, house staff and local guides in every destination. Portugal and The Caribbean are excellent options for families dispersed in different countries with international airports that serve The Americas and Asia. Seychelles works well for family beach holidays. Our favourite luxury properties in Seychelles have plenty of activities to entertain young children and teens. Or visit our sister company, TJB Super Yachts for bespoke charter experiences that take you to the edge of the world and back.

THE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY
It is not surprising that there is a demand for stillness this year. As we emerge from last year’s turmoil, many people want to travel for unmitigated rest and rejuvenation. We have had several requests from solo travellers and groups of friends asking us to design a bespoke wellness programme. In Europe, many of our private villas have a dedicated spa centre. We bring in experts such as nutritionists, yoga instructors, personal trainers and life coaches. Further afield, look to Bali for nourishment immersed in nature and some of the best wellness retreats in the world.

CULTURAL DEEP DIVE
Travel is one of the best ways to broaden our horizons. By taking time to understand new cultures, we learn fresh perspectives. We have built a trusted network of local experts in various fields including fine art, history and gastronomy. We know the people who will open doors to your destination and give you honest and authentic travel experiences. Some call it experiential travel; we view this as the only way to travel. With our portfolio of luxury villas in Croatia and Italy, we take you behind closed doors with your passions at the heart of the journey. It may be exploring little-known treasures on the shores of Lake Como or discovering the beauty of rural Croatia, our luxury travel designers know the people and places that will reignite your curiosity.
GREAT DESTINATIONS FOR CULTURAL TRAVEL
Long-haul travel is back. With most airlines operating their usual schedules, those dreamy hard-to-reach destinations are on the map again. You can’t go wrong with The Brando for the ultimate private island retreat surrounded by pristine beaches and coral reefs. Those in search of bucket-list nature experiences will love Isals Secas in Pamana. August is humpback whale season here when you might be lucky enough to watch whales breaching right in front of your villa. Or let us arrange a private safari in Africa with a luxury tented camp hidden in the savannah all to yourself.
GREAT DESTINATIONS FOR ADVENTURE TRAVEL
JUST YOU AND ME
Might this year finally be when you escape for a much-needed holiday together? Perhaps you have recently had your grown-up children back home, raiding the fridge while they use your office for endless zoom meetings. Or maybe you have had to delay your honeymoon time and again. Have you missed discovering new places with your greatest friend? If you have decided you want to spend quality time away with someone special, we know just the place that will give you time to reconnect. From the perfect luxury Maldives honeymoon to a private villa for two in Santorini, we will design a tailor-made journey with memories to last a lifetime.
