With an increasing demand for truly private travel, luxury hotels and private aviation companies are finding creative ways to keep jetsetters safe and socially-distant. To take things further, two companies have solved the problem by joining forces to offer the most seamless combination of the two.
Picture this: your suitcases are packed, your passports are out and ready. Now, from the comfort of home, you and your nearest and dearest make a beeline for a personal jet that takes you to your own private resort complete with all the five-star amenities one could ever imagine.
ÀNI Private Resorts, a collection of four ultra-exclusive resorts around the world, has partnered with personal aviation consultancy brand Private Jet Services (PJS) to launch just that experience for discerning travelers. The reciprocal benefits program they've created provides ÀNI guests with $5,000 flight credit on their first trip with PJS and existing PJS members a $10,000 credit redeemable for their first stay at any of ÀNI’s four private resorts when flying with PJS.
“Our VIP members are always looking for vacation options to travel with friends and family where they can have a place exclusively to themselves," Greg Raiff, CEO of Private Jet Services, explained in a statement. "With ÀNI we have the confidence that every group is, in essence, a buyout, which gives our clients the same peace of mind they have when traveling with us.”
Now about those resorts. Groups of up to 30 guests can be accommodated across ÀNI's collection: ÀNI Anguilla, ÀNI Dominican Republic, ÀNI Sri Lanka, and ÀNI Thailand. Each resort comes with a dedicated culinary team including executive chefs trained at Michelin-starred restaurants around the world; mixologist curated bars; state-of-the-art wellness facilities complete and massage therapists on-hand to provide daily complimentary treatments. Sound good? What's more, there's also complimentary kid’s programming, local excursions, cooking classes, tennis lessons, and everything in between.
All this with an added layer of health and cleanliness protocols such as a 48-hour minimum between check-in and check out of guests to allow for a thorough cleaning, daily health checks, readily available sanitizer and masks, and general distancing guidelines in place for staff and guests.
It's the ultimate decadent, socially distant vacation.
