In summer 2016, BBC2 aired The Millionaires’ Holiday Club; a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the glamourous world of luxury holidays.
The show provided viewers with an insight into the passion, enthusiasm and hard work that goes into making every client’s holiday the best it can be. And the tour operator starring in this luxury travel show? The Inspiring Travel Company!
Following clients on made-to-measure holidays, viewers joined well-heeled travellers and were whisked away to destinations from Barbados to Bangkok. Filming started in September 2015, when the BBC crew began following former Inspiring Travel Company CEO, Jennifer Atkinson and selecting Inspiring Travel Company team members for the show, along with the true stars; some of our valued clients.
Inviting viewers along with them during their time in paradise, you took an insider’s view on all that a luxury holiday can be. Whether it’s relaxing on the beach in Jamaica, or experiencing the peak of luxury cruising, our Travel Specialists can tailor-make every aspect of your dream holiday.
So, without further ado, here are some of the incredible luxury holidays that received their close-up on The Millionaires’ Holiday Club!
Imagine going on holiday to some of the most exclusive destinations money can buy. Well, in episode one of this two-part journey, viewers were transported to the shining sun and shimmering sands of the Caribbean.
Jane and her partner, Michael had retired to spend their time travelling the world in ultimate comfort, and luxury cruising is their favourite way to see the world. They set off on a Christmas cruise around the Caribbean islands with SeaDream Cruises.
This was their 54th journey with SeaDream, and the were treated to the signature stamp of refined luxury that they have come to expect. Along the way, Jane and Michael enjoyed stunning views, impeccable service, divine dining, and special events like the Champagne Splash welcome party and the cruise’s legendary Champagne and caviar party on the beach.
Journey to Jamaica
Also receiving its much-deserved screen time in episode one was the beautiful island of Jamaica.
After spending much of the year hard at work on their Somerset fruit farm, Mervyn and Heather dreamt of a precious week spent in paradise. Knowing that their time away needed to be picture perfect our Travel Specialists arranged for them to stay in one of the most famous hotels in Jamaica, the Jamaica Inn.
The emphasis here is on relaxation, so there are no televisions, radios or clocks, ensuring total respite from everyday life. However, this year things were different for Mervyn and Heather, who usually travel as a pair; as their daughter was coming along too, and had plans to get them off their sun loungers and into the surrounding area. With activities including watersports, diving and snorkelling, we can make your luxury Jamaica holiday the perfect mixture of relaxation and adventure.
Beauty in Barbados
Romance and love were the order of the day in the second episode of The Millionaire’s Holiday Club. Over the course of their sixteen-year relationship, Richard and Martyn have stayed in some of the most lavish destinations in the world, so our Travel Specialists had to pull out all the stops to give them a holiday of a lifetime in Barbados. Especially when Richard let slip that he was planning to propose to Martyn while they were away!
The entirety of their trip to the prestigious Sandy Lane estate was designed to build the perfect proposal. Personalised cocktails upon arrival, a host of other enchanting Sandy Lane exclusives, and a private plane flight to nearby Mustique ensured that Richard’s romantic plans paid off.
Also seeking some romance to spice up their retirement, Peter and his wife, Christine were looking for the perfect couple’s trip to India.
As they had already been on several luxury India holidays, they were going to be tough customers to impresses. However, having them stay in the suite at Kumarakom Lake Resort that Prince Charles and Camilla resided in when they visited India certainly did the trick. Despite their long history with this beautiful nation, Peter and Christine were blown away by personalized service that was fit for royalty and will no doubt be returning for another dose of Indian luxury hospitality in the future. Nothing beats spending an indulgent time with your loved ones surrounded by world-class luxury, decadent dining, and stunning views.
Having an in-depth and detailed understanding of the destinations we offer is what makes our Travel Specialists so good at their jobs. Over the course of The Millionaire’s Holiday Club viewers got to follow several members of the Inspiring Travel Company as they travelled the world seeking out incredible luxury experiences. In episode one, our luxury experts went on a research trip to the Seychelles. They stayed at North Island, the honeymoon destination of Prince William and Kate Middleton and one of the most luxurious holiday destinations in the world. The perfect place for a private romantic escape, there are four beaches on the island, including the secluded Honeymoon Cove, a particularly exclusive hideaway beside the sea.
In episode two the luxury exploration continued for our knowledgeable staff. Members of our concierge team, who are more used to crafting dream luxury experiences, jetted off in search of the ultimate luxury Thailand holiday. Usually answering requests and questions from guests ranging from hiring private jets to filling the minibar with your favourite brands, arriving at Four Seasons Koh Samui and receiving personalized, dedicated service for themselves was a well earnt treat! The team then moved on to Bangkok for a stay in The Peninsula Bangkok. Standing tall on the banks of the Chao Phraya River the views here are impeccable, as is the service. The location in the heart of the bustling city makes it the perfect place for our team to end their luxury adventure in Thailand.
