The Eden Collection has pitched its flag right at the summit of bespoke luxury travel and can offer some of the smartest holidays available. They’re not cheap, but the company’s added value resides in superb customer service and excellent destination knowledge (and, plugged in, they can also offer some exclusive deals for their regular customers). Interestingly the company is quite new - it was formed only in 2009. However, between the five members of the management team, the Eden Collection has around 80 years’ experience of the luxury travel market.
Having grown out of established luxury travel - and reflecting the growing opportunities for top end travel and the changing expectations of wealthy travellers - they also have a view about how luxury travel should be nowadays. When you inquire about travelling with the Eden Collection, you are assigned a Travel Director, who will be in touch at times convenient to you – perhaps during the evening or over the weekend. They are happy to come to see you to talk through the finer detail. And when you’re travelling they’re on hand 24/7 in case you need advice or help with a logistical issue.
The Eden Collection specialises in a number of geographical areas, including the Americas, from Canada to the southern tip of Chile and Argentina, plus the Caribbean (particularly for its many private villas). Also southern and south-eastern Africa, China and a handful of other Asia countries such as Bhutan, Burma and the Philippines.
And of course, being at the top end, they can offer private villas and yachts, luxury limousines, even a jet if that’s your brief.
