The Quintess Collection, a leader in private luxury travel since 2004, has announced the addition of two new exclusive experiences and a suite of other adventures to the club’s collection of travel opportunities worldwide. Members may now explore the Amazon and Machu Picchu, tour Sri Lanka, India and Bhutan, discover truffles and wine in Lake Como, cruise around Alaska, and experience Burgundy’s rich culinary culture.
By teaming up with other travel and experience experts, such as Natural Habitat Adventures, Nomad Tanzania, &Beyond, and IfOnly, Quintess is now able to offer bespoke experiences across five continents.
The club’s new Quintess Adventures include: Alaska, where an eight-day Quintess members-only experience allows participants to choose their own activities as they bear witness to the remaining glaciers, enter some of the world’s deepest fjords to hike and kayak, and relax in the tranquility of the natural wonder of the landscape. With the Safari Explorer, a luxurious private yacht, as basecamp, Quintess members can discover the Alaska wilderness on the grandest scale through the “Land, Air and Sea” adventure co-created by Natural Habitat Adventures.
Part of the recently released “World of Wine” collection, the Quintess members-only experience in Burgundy offers members the chance to explore the famous wine region with noted wine critic John Gilman. Members stay at L’Hôtel de Beaune, a luxuriously restored nineteenth-century mansion, and venture out to some of the area’s top wineries, including Chateau du Clos De Vougeot and Domaine Joseph Drouhin. Sommeliers and vintners who know Gilman personally open their homes to create experiences unavailable anywhere else.
In collaboration with IfOnly, and under the guidance of David Lynch, one of the world’s leading sommeliers, Quintess members are invited to tour Northern Italy’s wine country during the “Truffles and Wine” experience. The eight-day journey features activities centered around the renowned local food and wine, including foraging for truffles, dining at Michelin-starred restaurants and learning to make pasta from noted local chefs.
A 10-day Quintess members-only experience is on offer in Peru for adventurers to explore two of the world’s great natural and cultural treasures: Machu Picchu, the mystical stone city built by the Incas in the fifteenth century, and the Amazon Basin, home to a staggering array of wildlife, including the elusive jaguar. Throughout the journey, and through the work of Natural Habitat Adventures, members enjoy upgraded accommodations, transportation and activities.
Meanwhile, Quintess members are invited to explore some of the world’s beautiful and sacred sites with the “Three Country Tour.” The 14-day excursion starts in Bhutan, the heart of Buddhism, and ends with four days relaxing on the shores of Sri Lanka. Between time in Bhutan and Sri Lanka, guests immerse themselves in the history of India with a full-day guided tour of Delhi. This expanded itinerary was created after member feedback about the Bhutan and India offered last year with the assistance of &Beyond.
The Quintess Collection offers two ways to experience the club – the new Club Card and Memberships. Both choices provide access to the club’s entire portfolio of 170 residences in 60 worldwide destinations complemented with extensive pre-travel planning and support and in-destination service. Memberships start at $75,000 for 14 nights plus nightly fees, and the Club Card is $100,000 for 50 nights of usage over a three-year period.
