The Online Travel Shop

A Cool Way of Shopping for Luxury Travel Packages

Lily of the Valley Deck

Just in time for the holidays, we’ve launched The Travel Shop. You may not even need to partake in Black Friday sales. With The Travel Shop, all you need to do is point, click, and buy, and the world is yours. The Travel Shop’s superpower is that it cuts through the fat and gives you bespoke experiences from around the world. Our focus is bespoke boutique luxury hotels around the world, but also luxury travel packages in destinations like Rome and Florence.

Either way, these places are what you define as special, and what you’ll get is a no-brainer 4-7 trip with all the basics. You know, someone to fetch and drop you off at the airport, and a special dinner during your trip at the hotel, or a special tour. And, of course, breakfast, because that’s the most important meal of the day.  So, come check us out, and welcome to your wish list of luxury travel packages around the world.

A Preview of Our Travel Experiences

The Fine Print on our Luxury Travel Packages

We’re kicking off the Travel Shop with luxury travel packages in destinations, right in time for the holidays. In January, we’ll have a whole new slew of special hotels where you can buy your travel online. Given the holiday availability as we all know that’s always a challenge, all you need to do is Book Now below. From there, send us your dates and we’ll create a custom luxury travel package for you from now until the start of 2024.

All experiences on the Travel Shop are for up to two people, double occupancy unless otherwise noted. Of course, if you’re two guests you can buy out ANI Resorts anyway, as we’ve had that happen too. Packages do not include airfare, but of course, we can hook you up with that too. The world is your oyster, and The Travel Shop is here to make your adventures as inspired and easy as can be.

A Winter Retreat in St. Tropez

Days: 5 days/4 nights

The Itinerary

The secret about the South of France is that the weather is good all year round. You may not jump into the Med in December (though kudos to you if you do) but it can be warm enough to walk around sans coat. Either way, you have good prospects for lots of sunshine, good food, and the authenticity of the South of France experience. Also, the hotels that are open, like Lily of the Valley, are at a fraction of the price. What is not at a fraction though is the experience. At Lily of the Valley, you can unplug, join in on the wellness activities, and luxuriate in their gorgeous rooms.

Base Price: Starting at 2,000 euros

For 4 nights in a standard room, breakfast daily, special welcome amenities, upgrades where available, and airport transfers from Nice.

The New Year in Tunisia

Days: 5 days/4 nights

The Itinerary

Tunisia is one of the countries that is the most rich in history, beauty, and culture. It’s often overlooked for Morocco, though our philosophy is the two are not mutually exclusive. Morocco is like your Masters degree and Tunisia is like your PhD when it comes to travel. Tunisia’s capital Tunis is located at the heart of the Mediterranean and has picturesque blue and white towns. Designer Alaia even has a fashion museum, as most people don’t know that he was of Tunisian heritage.

Today, Tunisia has been and continues to be a major point of trade between Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. This has brought in a confluence of cultures over the years that have resulted in the city’s complex history. Tunisia has been colonized by the Phoenicians, the Romans, the Ottomans, and most recently, by the French.

For your four nights in Tunisia, you will be looked after from start to finish with airport VIP, 4 nights at the Four Seasons, and a customized tour one day. Additional touring is highly encouraged as there is much to uncover in Tunisia. This will be one of your most memorable trips not only of the year but of a lifetime.

Base Price: Starting at $5,500

For 4 nights in a standard room, double occupancy at the Four Seasons, breakfast included daily, $100 stay credit, VIP service on arrival, transfers to and from the hotel.  One full day of touring customized to your interests in Tunis with a top guide/driver.
