Everybody has their personal vision of heaven. If, like us, you enjoy buzzy tropical cities, earthy, soulful adventure, remote outposts, funky playlists, deep baths, lolling hammocks, coconuts, caipirinhas, and oodles of imaginative little surprises along the way, then read on…
We know how to balance downtime with adrenaline, off-grid hideaways with unbridled extravagance. Lounge access and tips on how to maximise your chances of an upgrade. A private terrace or a plunge pool go a long way. Massages and Champagne. Lots of Champagne. We always secure that little table under the olive tree, fix guest lists for private parties and spend an eternity dreaming up little indulgences…

Avoid the crowds and eye-watering prices of December and January, we love Uruguay in November and February thru April. Start with 2-3 nights in Buenos Aires, before hopping over the River Plate by ferry to the sleepy village of Colonia, all cobbles and pastel colonial facades. From here, go on to explore its lush hills studded with olive groves, vineyards, stylish owner-run boutiques; the thriving food scene of Montevideo; the tumbleweed village com legendary gastronomic enclave, made famous by Francis Mallmann’s Garzon, and vast expanses of pristine coastline for swimming, surfing and kitesurfing. As ever, we have keys for everything, from the Robinson Crusoe shack to the Bond Villain lair.
