Where did your love of travel come from? 

My love of travel was nurtured from a young age. I developed a deep passion for exploration and adventure, which came from my innate curiosity about the world.

My family encouraged me to embrace different cultures and landscapes, and I took my first trips with them to captivating destinations such as Bolivia, Oman, Italy and more. These early experiences instilled in me a profound appreciation for the beauty and diversity of the natural world and human cultures.

As the years passed, my love for travel only grew stronger. I found myself drawn to transformative journeys. For example, a trip to the heart of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil was not only awe-inspiring but also had a profound effect on me. Navigating the mighty Amazon River and encountering wildlife in its pristine habitat reinforced my belief that travel has the power to expand our horizons and deepen our understanding of the world.

Top recommended ultra luxury experience?

My suggestion is to stay in an overwater bungalow on the French Polynesian island of Bora Bora. You will have the most spectacular views of the extinct volcano Mount Otemanu.

Having personally swam alongside sharks and rays in the crystalline waters, I can vouch for the enchanting place. The bungalows have breathtaking vistas and direct access to the azure ocean. Here, you can submerge yourself in the exquisite allure of the South Pacific while relishing world-class amenities and enjoying impeccable service. It's a sanctuary that combines natural beauty and opulence to create an unforgettable escape where the boundaries between the dreamlike scenery and your reality blur into one harmonious experience.

Hotel (collection or boutique) with the best service?

Throughout my extensive travels, I've had the privilege of experiencing some of the world's most exquisite destinations. Among them, Six Senses has consistently stood out as a true embodiment of exceptional service and luxury. For me, Six Senses is not merely a place to rest; it's an immersive journey that rekindles the senses with wellness offerings and experiences that transcend the ordinary. It brings me immense joy to introduce this remarkable brand to my clients.

Ultimate dining experience?

For the ultimate dining experience, I recommend an enchanting dinner in the heart of the African savannah within the wilds of Kenya or Tanzania.

Nothing beats a secluded candlelit dinner set against the backdrop of the untamed wilderness, with the Big Five gracing their natural habitat. This remarkable dining adventure not only promises gourmet cuisine but also invites you to forge a deep connection with nature. Immerse yourself in the serenity of the wild, where the stars above mirror the splendour of the landscape below, creating an ambiance that is nothing short of magical.

Best kept travel secret? 

My hidden travel gem is uncovering the treasures of Central America, a region often overlooked by mainstream tourists. This part of the world abounds with untouched natural beauty, vibrant cultures, and diverse landscapes that promise adventures. From Guatemala's awe-inspiring Mayan ruins at Tikal to Nicaragua's pristine beaches and Costa Rica's lush rainforests, Central America offers a wealth of experiences waiting to be explored.

What makes this region special for me is its relative obscurity to mass tourism, making it an ideal destination for travellers seeking authentic, off-the-beaten-track experiences. You can immerse yourself in local traditions, savour mouth watering cuisine, and witness stunning landscapes without the crowds.

Central America's hidden gems promise a deeper connection to the land and its people, creating memories that linger long after your journey ends.
