After seeing a sizable jump in private villa bookings,
Virtuoso has partnered with Luxury Retreats to make its private villas
available to Virtuoso members and their clients.
"Over the past year, we've seen demand for private
villas reach new heights with a 40% year-over-year increase in bookings,
leading us to seek out more products and services to feed this skyrocketing
trend," said Albert Herrera, Virtuoso's senior vice president of global product
partnerships. "People want to experience destinations
as if they're living like residents, not merely tourists, and many times they
want seclusion and privacy as well."
Luxury Retreats has over 4,000 homes and villas in hundreds
of destinations. Virtuoso members will be offered access to those properties as
well as travel credit and the support of Luxury Retreats' team of 400-plus
Luxury Retreats provides guests with 24/7 concierge
services. Virtuoso clients will receive a concierge credit per rental.
