For all those who associate package holidays with bland buffets, cringe-worthy entertainment and a Piña Colada by the pool, Barradoro, priced at $198,000 (£125,000) per person for a seven-night trip, is set to blow away any preconceptions about the all-inclusive.
Featuring a round the world trip taking in seven cities in seven days, Barradoro is the world’s most extensive and expensive ‘all inclusive’ holiday.
Instead of coach transfers, buffets, and Phil the magician, Barradoro supplies guests with luxury limos, vintage Champagne, Michelin-starred chefs, and some of the biggest names in rock and pop music.
Throughout their trip, guests will fly on their own private jet and visit worldwide renowned party and cultural hotspots from Tokyo and Shanghai to Istanbul and Los Angeles, attending star-studded events and being wined and dined in some of the world’s most exclusive venues.
Working out at $1,190 (£750) per hour and only available to 100 people, Barradoro guarantees a trip of a lifetime and is definitely not a package holiday, nor is it available at your local travel agent. With luxury and privacy as key, this niche trip is only available to members. Entrance and membership is based on who you are rather than who you know, and every member has to go through an intensive admission process. Each applicant attends one-to-one interviews with the founder, as well as undergoing visa, credit, and criminal record checks
World’s coolest cities
The trip starts in Tokyo with guests attending an exclusive launch party at the foot of Mount Fuji before jetting off to feast on a gourmet banquet in the bright lights of Shanghai. Here, guests will be treated to world-class entertainment on the waterfront of Shanghai’s Huangpu River.
Abu Dhabi is the next stop, boasting culture and cosmopolitan luxury and hosting a line up of musical performances that would make any diehard music lover jealous. Continuing onto Istanbul, energy and spirits are kept high with a clever twist of ancient and modern arts amongst the stylish nightlife scene of one of the world’s most exciting cities.
Next, a stop in the founder’s hometown of London promises an insight into the one of world’s coolest cities. Focusing on innovative music and fashion trends, the London event will be held in the iconic venue of Battersea Power Station. This yet to be announced, amazing display of fashion, rock and performance is tipped to get the nation talking.
A-listers and celebs
After a well-needed rest on the cross-Atlantic flight, guests disembark in New York, where they will attend a star-studded ball celebrating America’s Big Apple for its diversity of culture, glamour, and attitude at a secret location.
The journey of a lifetime makes its final stop in Los Angeles for the ultimate grand finale to conclude this luxurious trip. With A-list talent, live performances and a firework display like no other, LA will provide the perfect backdrop to the Barradoro goodbye party.
