Days 1-4Saint Lucia
This outrageously, customized & exclusive, around the world honeymoon began by flying the couple to St Lucia where we secured them 4 nights in a 2000 sq ft suite at Jade Mountain, with 180 degree views of Deux Pitons and stunning infinity pool. We arranged private beach excursions, jungle treks and scuba diving while the couple decompressed from the wedding hubbub. They took part in spice tours, tropical fruit foraging, fishing day trips, evening leatherback turtle nesting and a jungle excursion. Rest was the biggest feature here as they prepared for their global honeymoon. Karolin Troubetzkoy, the Owner looked after them.
Next, the couple was off to Europe for a visit to Madrid where we got them the best suite at the uber mod Urban Hotel and mixed in an experience for the bride which was a private/after hours entry to The Museo del Traje for a look at fashion throughout the centuries, and for the groom cooking lessons with a Michelin rated chef on Basque cuisine.
The couple jetted off to Taormina, Sicily where their suite at the Grand Hotel Timeo, opened to the infamous Teatro Greco (Greek Amphitheater) where a private, candlelight dinner was arranged for them on arrival on her grounds. We included an expert naturalist/guide on an excursion to Mt. Etna. On their return from the Mount, we arranged a visit to a private winery.
From there, the newlyweds took a turn for some tropical adventure in The Maldives, where we arranged a 2 island experience at Soneva Fushi & Soneva Gili Resorts. Their private seaplane whisked them off to their first few days at Fushi. Their butler was waiting for them on arrival with spa treatments at The Jungle Reserve which comes with its own massage pavilion, steam room, gym and near wrap-around swimming pool as well as a Mr. and Mrs. Friday. After 4 days of pampering they set off via speedboat to Soneva’s swankier sister resort, Gili. On arrival we had dinner planned and ready for them on a nearby, deserted island for just the two of them. Here, they indulged in the ultimate in seclusion staying in the Private Reserve which is a virtual private estate in the middle of the Indian Ocean—one with five separate buildings linked with walkways. On a spa day for the bride, we arranged a private boat to take the husband surfing on the eastern edges of North Male' Atoll and South Male' Atoll. Sonu Shivadasani, the Chairman & CEO of Soneva/Six Senses Resorts helped secure the best of the best for the honeymoon couple and the highest level of personal attention.
They set off via Private Jet to the mythical isle of Bali the scenic isle of dense jungle, volcanoes, stunning beaches, and rich, ancient culture. We had the best suite in the resort waiting at the Rome-based luxury jeweler Bulgari’s new resort near the stunning cliff top Pura Luhur Uluwatu Temple, on the island's far southwestern tip known as The Bukit. Their Bulgari Villa was their home for a week of Balinese adventure. The General Manager, Robert Lagerwey, personally facilitated all VIP activities for the couple and met them on arrival. On the isle we arranged a private, sunrise, commitment performed by a local shaman, visits to have custom jewelry made in Ubud and private guides to the many temples, monuments, volcanoes, villages & sites. A private plane and guide were secured for a visit to Borobudur, a ninth-century Mahayana Buddhist monument in Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia. We arranged an overnight stay at Amanjiwo in their best, Dalem Jiwo Suite prior to returning to Bali the next day.
