New Global Luxury Trend – Personalized Travel & Bespoke Experiences
I have approached this subject in my previous articles on https://medium.com/@giannisgeorgiadis
about what Luxury Travel is all about. Is it about luxury shopping, restaurants, and VIP events? The answer is that it includes all these elements, however, the main concept is deeper.
The Perceive Of The Past
In the past, the all-inclusive travel packages, such as air tickets, accommodation, transfers etc, from a travel agent of your neighbor was really a luxury service. Then this product transformed into tailor-made packages of multi-stops travel product, like combining in your holidays’ different Greek islands, such as Crete, Santorini, and Mykonos within a couple of weeks vacation period.
The fact is that many travelers, in the flair of our bombing age of information, already know many things and hidden gems of the world. Consequently, flashy events, good restaurants, and good shopping therapies still consist of a big part of someone’s holiday, but the true experience worths much more!
Even TripAdvisor has changed its segment of “activities” into the segment of “experiences”. But what is an experience? It is a feeling, a unique moment, a tailor-made experience which is fully personalized for you and the beloved ones.
Let’s take the example of Luxury Hotels & Villas which welcome their guests with personalized services, such as their favorite music, and their preferences, such as special beverages and a selection of fruits that they are fond of.
The Case Of Greece Luxury Holidays
As a matter of fact, this trend Personalized Travel trend has great capabilities to be expanded even more. Let’s take into consideration Greece, where true paradises and cozy islands are yet to be explored. Not to mention the limitless culinary experience and rehabilitation opportunities.
We in Snami Travel Boutique DMC have perceived this idea. We are not trying to be above the travel competition, we thrive just to be different! From the first meeting at the airport during the Meet & Greet service we try to spark our travelers’ first feelings about Greece.
Furthermore, we try to supervise and enhance their staying experience in their booked hotels and villas. Then we just listen to their needs and expectations by tailoring their unique tours, a luxury like a local concept, bespoke excursions, chauffeur services, weddings, luxury lifestyle services and much more unique things to do in Greece. Not to mention the small cruises to wild Cretan Beaches surrounded by the Libyan Sea https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWl1fLudPKA.
A reference to Steve Jobs…
– For the rest t of his career, Jobs would understand the needs and desires of customers better than any other business leader, he would focus on a handful of core products, and he would care, sometimes obsessively, about marketing and image and even the details of packaging. “When you open the box of an iPhone or iPad, we want that tactile experience to set the tone for how you perceive the product,” he said. “Apple taught me that.” –
In the light of this reality, Greece is this unique product and a great experience. The majestic white and blue little box and that sparks the feelings when opening it. But not in terms of past exploitation. It is a destination that can be considered a sustainable tourism experience, with much respect for the environment and culture.
