2024 is the era of personalized travel, where exclusivity takes center stage, and guess what? It’s not just for the rich and famous, but a reality that is gaining popularity among travelers who prefer to chart their own course.
“As a seasoned travel professional, I’ve experienced the growing trend that is redefining luxury experiences – property buyouts,” says Molly Mathis, founder of MOJO Adventures. “If you want to truly own your experience, let me introduce you to what a property buyout looks like and offer a few examples.”
The concept of property buyouts involves securing an entire property solely for the enjoyment of your group. This can be a multigenerational group, an executive retreat for twenty, and everything in between.
“When my clients opt for a property buyout, they are not just booking accommodation; they are taking possession of their entire travel experience. From the moment they step foot on the property, every detail is meticulously planned to cater to their preferences, making them the masters of their journey,” says Molly.
Imagine having an entire villa, resort, or private island at your disposal. Some of the highlights of a property buyout include:
- Access to a private chef who crafts menus tailored to the group’s tastes or meals specific to your region of travel. Whether it’s a romantic dinner under the stars or a lively beachside barbecue, the culinary experience becomes an integral part of the overall journey.
- Customized adventures curated to match your interests. Be it exploring hidden gems, embarking on adrenaline-pumping excursions, or enjoying cultural immersions – every moment is a tailor-made adventure.
- Exclusive access to personalized wellness programs and fitness activities. Imagine yoga sessions overlooking a serene landscape or spa treatments designed to cater to individual preferences – it’s wellness brought directly to the doorstep.
- Saving while splurging! Contrary to common perception, opting for a property buyout can be a cost-effective choice, especially for larger groups. When compared to the expenses associated with booking multiple rooms at a luxury hotel,paying additional resort fees, and unexpected “gotchas” and extras, a property buyout often proves to be a more economical option.
“I believe property buyouts are not just a trend but the new way to redefine travel for those who appreciate the togetherness when traveling and want a seamless experience all their own,” says Mathis.
