For the vacationing ultra high net worth, luxury isn’t just first-class flights and stays in the top hotels any more. True luxury is skipping the lines, having a museum’s curator personally conduct tours and even a private recital from an opera star – all made possible with Scott Dunn Private. While the tour company has always operated within the luxury spheres, this new invite-only membership platform takes the personalisation even further with Scott Dunn’s ‘exceptional little black book of contacts’.
Arrangements can be made for any request: from taking a private jet from Kuala Lumpur to Botswana for a wholly exclusive safari adventure; to – god permit – a private audience with the pope. For the motorheads, Scott Dunn has access to a fleet of supercars, including the Aston Martin DB11 and Lamborghini Aventador S that members take a road trip through Tuscany with.
Curating these possibilities and servicing clients are the brand’s teams of personal travel advisors, each based in Singapore, London and California. Available 24 hours each day, these teams consist of experienced globetrotters that can not just curate experiences, but are privy to details like whether a property’s presidential suite is on point. Teams will be working closely with clients, building personal relationships – a la private banking – in order to cater to each member’s personal needs and travel habits.
This means that it’s not just the fun stuff that will be taken care of – but logistical details like nannies and tutors for the children, and personal security. Time, after all, is the most valuable thing money can (sometimes) buy.
