The Value of Luxury Travel Partnerships

#1 It's all about who you know

Behind every great travel advisor is a network of industry connections. From personal relationships with individual resorts and in-destination suppliers to knowing just who to call for specific expertise, Virtuoso and Hotel Elite advisors leverage our community of experts whose goal is making your vacation spectacular.


A recent example: Repeat clients of mine wanted the Mailani Loft Family Suite at Royal Hawaiian on Oahu where they had stayed two years ago - but it was sold out. I reached out to my Marriott Luminous/Virtuoso partners, and not only did I secure the sold-out suite my clients wanted, but I also secured VIP airport transfers and all the Luminous VIP perks. Then for their Big Island stay, I leveraged my personal connection at the Fairmont Orchid (whom I've met with twice during our stays on Maui), and secured one night free, a $200 resort credit, and complimentary breakfast for the whole family! It's all about who you know!

#2 Even better in person

We understand that vacations are a big investment in time, money, and memories. If you've ever experienced a trip where the resort looked fine online but not so fine in person and everyone was disappointed, you never want that to happen again. 


With Virtuoso and our Hotel Elite programs, you have peace of mind knowing that all properties are thoroughly vetted to ensure they deliver on the networks' impeccable Best of the Best standards. Prepare to be wow-ed because your accommodations will be even better in person! 

#3 VIP treatment

Exclusive perks like red-carpet welcomes, complimentary experiences, and room upgrades help make your vacation spectacular!

When we book you at a Virtuoso or Hotel Elite property, you're considered a VIP from the get-go. We notify the General Manager at your hotel that a VIP guest is arriving, so they're ready to roll out a red-carpet welcome. You'll be treated to exclusive perks like complimentary breakfast, room upgrades (hello, oceanfront suite!), resort credits to spend on dining and spa, local treats in your room, cabanas, and more! My son still talks about the amazing (and free!) breakfast at Fairmont Kea Lani on Maui!

#4 Richer, more meaningful experiences

After-hours tours, sporting events, and yacht charters

Being part of these elite networks means we have personal connections that enable us to secure once-in-a-lifetime experiences you can't find anywhere else. Need tickets to the French Open or the Olympics? Want a private, after-hours tour of the Vatican in Rome or St. Mark's Basilica in Venice? We know who to call! These connections open doors to richer, more meaningful experiences for you away from the crowds and tourist traps.

#5 Inspiration at your fingertips

As our client, you'll get Virtuoso's magazine and access to their online Wanderlist.

Virtuoso's travel guides and website will inspire you to dream big and fill up your travel calendar. As a client of Show Them the World, you'll receive Virtuoso's bi-monthly magazine for free. When it arrives at my door, it's almost as exciting as when Bark Box arrives for our dogs.


Virtuoso also offers an online tool called Wanderlist where you can find new travel ideas, add them to your Wanderlist, and share your Wanderlist with your travel party for inspiration at your fingertips!
