About Us

What we do?

In the travel world, many a world-class venue flies under the radar. Structured cruises and tours often miss the best stops in town. This is the Directory to the plush, unique, and unknown. These hidden spots remain “unknown" because guests become loyal and protective of their special-ness. Check them out as they are posted. Pin them, like them, or share them with others who have luxury bucket lists like you.

We get to see, smell, and taste the world, so we can bring it to you as vividly as we can. We try to capture the colors, scents, and flavors of unique hotels, luxurious spas, and culinary hot-spots around the world – but off the tour guides’ beaten path in big cities and small. We want to surprise you, thrill you, and overwhelm you with new opportunities in exotic, mysterious, and even dangerous places.
