Award-winning luxury tour operator Scott Dunn is known for its tailor-made holidays and honeymoons to destinations around the world. The company is now in the UAE offering a host of bespoke getaways to destinations in the region and internationally.
An off-the-beaten-path escape, a romantic adventure, a family getaway or an exotic journey – these are just some of the themed travel itineraries that Scott Dunn can create. The company operates luxury ski chalets in the Alps and villas in the Mediterranean, all of which come fully staffed with Scott Dunn private chefs, nannies and hosts.
These incredible travel facilities are now being offered to guests based in the UAE. But how does it work? The Scott Dunn website highlights a large variety of holiday ideas departing from the UAE, all priced in Dirhams. The company’s bespoke service is initiated by a conversation with its UK-based Travel Consultants, which are available to UAE residents through a local freephone number and free also during UAE working hours.
The idea is to create your own luxury tailor-made holiday. From a week spent in the Seychelles, a tour of Japan and a safari across Africa, almost anything that guests can imagine is possible.
For those who love skiing, choose from a one of 29 luxurious chalets in the Alps, which is fully staffed by Scott Dunn. For example, Chalet Genepy in Val d’Isère, France, costs from 127,195 AED a week for a party of 10. Includes a private chef, host, in-resort driver service and transfers. If your dream is to stay in a luxury villa with your family, then head to one of Scott Dunn’s 15 villas in Mallorca and the South of France, which come fully staffed with a private chef, host and nanny. A stay at the dreamy Bastide des Virettes in the South of France costs 84,000 AED per week for eight people. It includes two hired cars and flights with Emirates to Nice.
Also tailor-made are special getaways for families with young children. These are trips that allow children to learn and be inspired. Scott Dunn runs Explorers kids clubs at Soneva Kiri in Thailand, Pine Cliffs in the Algarve, Daios Cove in Crete, Verdura in Sicily, Sun Gardens in Croatia, Anassa and Almyra in Cyrpus and, brand new for 2015, NIYAMA in the Maldives and Eagles Palace in Greece. For snow lovers, there are winter clubs in Val d’Isère and at Le Portetta hotel in Courchevel 1650.
Without a doubt, the epitome of luxury travel is the honeymoon and Scott Dunn has this covered as well. These are unforgettable, bespoke getaways that catered to every desire of the bride and the groom. These could include a week on a private island or a three-week adventure. For example, a honeymoon that combines safari and beach time in South Africa and Mauritius comes to 20,775 AED per person on a fully-inclusive basis in South African and half-board in Mauritius. It also includes transfer and international travel with Emirates.
And for the many who simply love to conjure up exotic and adventurous travel plans, Scott Dunn has several new itineraries that guests will fancy.
