June 26, 2014

Travel.  Events. Magazine. Top Notch Recommendations. Membership Perks. VIP Treatment.  Full-Service Travel Concierge.

Over the past 3 1/2 years, I've had the privilege of building Galavante, into the luxury travel company we are today.  Our goal is to be your community, to share your recommendations, and get the inspiration for the best in travel, lifestyle and entertainment.  It is you that makes Galavante so unique.  Every single recommendation we make at Galavante is from one of our working jet setters.  Our Tastemakers are the foundation for our travel adventures, and you can expect to hear more from them this fall when we formally launch our Reviews & Forums.  We are the only company that is Travel for the Working Jet Set, by the Working Jet Set.  


We were honored to have our Working Jet Setters, Mary Cooper, Serra Eken, Cynthia Irons and Jana Beauchamp, who epitomize the hardworking, well-traveled, successful and in-the-know members at Galvante, to host an event for us at the Cosmopolitan Club.  Our partners, the Viceroy Anguilla, Italian Style Villas and Alto Atacama sponsored the evening, as three distinct yet each personally fulfilling destinations where we travel around the world.  The Viceroy Anguilla is definitively the no-brainer, quick flight, guaranteed gorgeous beach vacation from many major cities across the US.  We recommend it for any and all getaways, as the effortlessly cool, modern Caribbean destination, with one of the best pool scenes and restaurants to chill out for a weekend.  Italian Style Villas is the leader of all the villa rental companies, with its best pricing, exclusive listings and personalized services that exceeds any other company in Italy today.  Whether you're renting an apartment in Rome or Sting's villa, (you know, the rockstar) they've got you covered.  Galavante Members get a welcome aperitivo hour when  you rent an apartment, and a gorgeous dinner when you rent a villa.  Not bad at all.  Last but not least, Alto Atacama and Singular Santiago in Chile generous donated a 5 day trip, all food, beverage, transfers in the Atacama included, to a lucky guest.  Congratulations Scott and Elizabeth Christopher, who will embark on a trip of a lifetime.  The Atacama puts our existance into perspective, with its vast desert that mimicks the terrain of the moon, active volcanos and planes high in the desert with skies so blue and water more turquoise than any Caribbean island.  It's lifechanging.  

For at Galavante, that's what our mission is.  To change your life.  Thank you for being part of our adventure.
