Luxury Travel is a growing industry in travel, driven by increased disposable income of middle and upper class individuals, their need to explore exotic destinations, and their desire to spend quality time with family. The growth in the market is also due to a shift from traditional hotels to upmarket hotels and resorts, a preference for individualized experiences and an inclination toward social responsibility and sustainability.
The Millennials are the new ‘Premium Tourist’
Digital-first Millennials and Generation X are a key demographic driving luxury travel trends. This group has a global outlook and travels more frequently than any other generation.
They want to stay at boutique and bespoke properties, experience the local culture, and be involved with the community. They also prefer to have access to local experts who can help them understand the local language and customs.
A luxury hotel is one that has got this right – the Andaz Mayakoba, on the Riviera Maya in Mexico, features local crafts throughout the lobby and rooms. It hosts tequila classes and has a street artist in residence.
Personalized Service is the key to a successful luxury vacation. A dedicated travel planner will work with you to match your needs and desires with experiences that are tailor-made for your specific preferences.
The benefits of Luxury Travel are endless. A luxurious travel experience can give you memories that will last a lifetime. It can also open your eyes to the world in a way that you never thought possible.
