Established in 1999 BH (Before Hobbits), Luxury Adventures is a New Zealand based travel company specialising in tailored luxury itineraries for people travelling to the South Pacific. In the beginning, and as loyal ‘kiwis' we promoted New Zealand. Soon after we realised that although some wanted primarily to discover New Zealand others wanted to incorporate different South Pacific destinations such as Australia and Fiji into their plans. With us you'll be able to select one destination or combine a few to create your luxury travel experience.
What is a ‘luxury travel experience'? The definition of luxury is such an individual thing, some define it by price, or brand - I think luxury can be simple. For me it's defined by spending time the way you want, be it with family, friends or personal pursuits. For you it's perhaps a particular experience, beautiful accommodation or a moment shared with someone special? Essentially the definition of luxury is different to everyone and it's our job to find out how you define luxury in order to deliver it. We like to learn as much as possible about our clients interests and travel objectives in order to tailor something that fits just right.
We also realise you have a choice about who to book with, so why choose us and what makes us different? We believe the below sets us apart from the rest:
- Unique thoughtfully tailored itineraries
- 24/7 phone and email service whilst travelling
- Based in New Zealand with expertise garnered via actual experiences
- Integrity and a personal touch from our small dedicated team
- We care whether you enjoy your self, it's important to us!
It's one thing for us to sound our own trumpet and another for you to believe it. Have a look at our testimonials page or better still we'll put you in touch with someone (from your country if possible) who's travelled with us and you can decide for yourself! No two travellers are alike and we understand this. Our bespoke itinerary service can include extravagant ‘one off experiences' that are extraordinary, and undoubtedly costly.. however we're also realistic and understand that not everyone has a 7 star budget and still wants to enjoy a luxury experience, which is why all of our proposals are unique to you and your travel budget.
Over our years in business we've established strong relationships with key suppliers and have personally experienced many of the accommodation and activities we sell, therefore we can offer you honest, unbiased advice alongside realistic planning. Tie our advice in with your preferences and these two factors become invaluable in ensuring you maximise your time and ultimately receive value for your money. We have an assortment of travel packages to give you ideas. Some are based on previous clients itineraries and others we have put together as examples of what is possible. Go on, take a look and feel free to get in touch, we're confident you'll be pleasantly surprised.
