From private jets to trains. The experiences offered by luxury hotels

Category:

Jet tour to the Galápagos Islands, luxury Andes train ride, or cooking class in Michelin-star kitchen can be yours by some luxury hotels. 

Imagine these experiences:

Latin Escape – a 16-days private jet experiences adventure in Central and South America.

Andean Explorer – a ride along one of the highest rail routes in the world and through the Peruvian Andes to over 4,000 meters above sea level.

Dim Sum Making Journeyonce in a lifetime experience to learn how to make dim sum with our gifted chef from our Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant, Spring Moon.

At first scrutiny, these may sound like bespoke experiences offered by a luxury travel agency. Instead, these are offered by high-end hotel chains, aimed at the discerning wealthy traveler, who can afford to enjoy a jet-setting itinerary above Costa Rica, Buenos Aires, Bogotá and Galápagos Islands, or a hands-on cooking session with a celebrated chef in a Michelin-starred restaurant’s kitchen.

Four Seasons organises experience tours on its private jets, featuring fine dining and recently announced its 2019 private jet itinerary, a 16-days swash buckling adventurous voyage on a private jet across Central and South America.

Increasingly, a growing number of boutique hotel chains are pushing the proverbial envelope on luxury travel by offering experience-led packages.

Although the global experiential luxury trend has been in the making for a few years, Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, Belmond and Peninsula Hotels are joining the fray to keep their clients happy.
