TCS World Travel's New Private Jet Trip Heads to Remote Locales

TCS World Travel has unveiled a new private jet itinerary: “Silence and Darkness.” The customizable 25-day trip takes guests to remote destinations around the world. From dark sky destinations with little to no outside light pollution to designated quiet ecosystems around the globe, guests can reconnect with nature in nine secluded locales.

TCS’ new "Silence & Darkness" trip transports guests by private jet to isolated places around the world, from tropical paradises and Arctic lakes, to a remote desert and a private island, with experiences and accommodations included in each destination. Guests will stay in Australia’s Outback and explore the bushland in Queensland, Australia; kayak and fish in New Zealand’s remote and unspoiled Bay of Islands; relax and recharge at the spa at the new Kona Village, A Rosewood Resort in Kona, Hawaii; and marvel at wildlife in Sri Lanka’s Yala National Park; among other experiences.

TCS’ curated journey includes luxury accommodations, local guides, exceptional dining experiences, transfers, gratuities and end-to-end service. The trip pricing includes all accommodations and activities in the proposed itinerary, private jet transportation between each destination on a Gulfstream G550, Global Express or similar, and the ability to add on a private jet or first-class commercial travel to the itinerary starting points.

The full itinerary includes:

Kona, Hawaii (two nights)

The trip begins on the Big Island of Hawaii, one of the best places in the world for stargazing. Travelers can take in the night sky from the high altitude of Mauna Kea, the tallest mountain in the state. Through spa treatments and a range of outdoor and ocean activities, one will start to experience the regenerative state of lōkahi—a concept from traditional Hawaiian healing that means harmony mentally, physically and spiritually.

Accommodations: Kona Village, A Rosewood Resort

Bora Bora, Tahiti (three nights)

The private compound at The St. Regis is enclosed on three sides by coral walls and opens to its own private beach facing a sparkling lagoon and Mount Otemanu. One will spend the time on this remote island taking in all that nature has to offer, from snorkeling and diving to stand up paddleboarding and hiking. Travelers can also relax and rejuvenate at the resort’s luxurious spa or watch the underwater show from the spacious overwater bungalow. 

Accommodations: The St. Regis Bora Bora

Bay of Islands, New Zealand (three nights)

Travelers will take the private jet into Auckland and then board a helicopter to transfer to The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs, located in New Zealand’s remote Bay of Islands.

Koh Rong Archipelago, Cambodia (three nights)

Travelers will take the private jet to a coastal city in southwest Cambodia and then board a speedboat for a three-night stay at a resort on a secluded island in the Gulf of Thailand’s Koh Rong archipelago. The Song Saa Private Island is home to a diverse range of marine life; one can snorkel, dive or kayak to explore the island’s hidden coves and bays. Travelers can also relax at their “spa with no walls,” little sanctuaries dotted across the island, where treatments take place nestled in nature.

Yala National Park, Sri Lanka (three nights)

Here, the wildlife is of the larger, land-based sort—including elephants, leopards, lions and sloth bears. From the luxury tented camp, one can enjoy game drives along with a variety of other activities in the beauty of the national park, from guided bush and nature walks to biking. One can also savor sundowners at the lodge’s watering hole, where elephants and other local fauna come to drink, and dine under a canopy of stars.

AlUla, Saudi Arabia (two nights)

As travelers venture to Saudi Arabia and the surroundings of AlUla, they can visit the ancient city of Hegra, a rock-cut Nabateans marvel that rivals the grandeur of Petra. During the day they can adventure into the desert, while at night they can marvel at the blanket of stars on display.

Luleå, Norrbottens län, Sweden (three nights)

Spring is the best time to see the northern lights in Swedish Lapland, and Arctic Bath, a floating spa hotel, is well-situated for viewing them.

Relax in one of the six floating saunas or simply opt for indulging in the full menu of spa treatments.
