Where did your love of travel come from? 

Some of the best memories of my childhood were of my dad always getting lost and my mum struggling to get help from the locals. Though the places we went to were always different, the sense of family, love and exploration were always constant and that is something that has always stuck with me. 

Top recommended ultra luxury experience?

A private chartered surprise trip to the Sabi Sands in South Africa. There’s nothing quite like flying door-to-door from the city right into one of the most fertile and densely natural settings in the world. Though you’ll find yourself waking up as early as 05.00 with an excellent safari guide and spotter you see a whole new side to the natural world. The private reserves of Sabi Sands are also few in number and will go the extra mile to ensure you’re well taken care of after a long day on the trail. 

Hotel with the best service?

My favourite hotel group would undoubtedly be Aman Hotels & Resorts. What Aman has done astoundingly well is adapted the hotels so naturally to their local environments whilst maintaining an impeccable level of service across every destination.  

Ultimate dining experience?

Endo at the Rotunda run by third-generation sushi master Endo Kazutoshi. He is the former executive chef for Zuma who opened their Australia, New York, and Dubai locations. Endo delivers an incredible ‘back to basics’ omakase experience overlooking London’s West End and BBC television studio. Endo spends an incredible amount of time sourcing the highest quality product, with clams from Brittany to tuna from Spain and rice made with water from his very own rice paddies in Japan. Endo will not disappoint. 

Best kept travel secret? 

Stay in a charming villa in Hacienda, on the north coast of Egypt. The residential compound shares the Mediterranean Sea with Greece, boasting unbelievably white sands and clear blue lagoons. Andrea restaurant serves classic Egyptian dishes, highly renowned by locals and known for its delicious flavours.
