Luxury Travel Magazine today announced the launch of their new Web site, introducing a groundbreaking resource for the affluent traveler. LuxuryTravelMagazine.com is changing the way luxury travelers find vacation options by providing ÂThe A-List of TravelÂ online Â the definitive listing of 6,000+ of the worldÂs ultimate travel experiences.
LuxuryTravelMagazine.com was created by former Beverly Hills 'travel agent to the stars' Christine Gray, to provide the first, one-stop resource for discerning travelers. The site's comprehensive database includes distinctive experiences that can't be found on existing travel mega-sites, such as luxury lodges of New Zealand, castles in Scotland, villas in Mexico and wilderness retreats in Canada, among endless other possibilities.
ÂUntil now, luxury travel on the Internet has remained very scattered and fragmented,Â says Gray, Âwe bring all the worldÂs best travel options into one complete resource with innovative search capabilities that compare to consulting with your own trusted travel advisor.Â
Travelers can search the more than 6,000 luxury properties by customizing their search to suit their needs. LuxuryTravelMagazine.com is the only travel web site with patent-pending search technology that allows consumers to specify exactly what they are looking for, or to enter general criteria so they can shop around for different vacation ideas.
LuxuryTravelMagazine.comÂs innovative search functionality differs dramatically from other travel web sites because it is based on Âthe experienceÂ rather than the destination. For example, if a traveler is interested in a Country House in Tuscany that offers Cooking Classes or a Boutique Hotel in Seattle that offers Yoga, the site's unique search returns recommendations based on those needs. Also, if a traveler is undecided on a destination, but has a certain experience in mind, such as a bungalow on the beach, a chalet in the mountains or a wilderness retreat with spa, the search will return all options available in various destinations.
The A-List of Travel is the definitive listing of the world's most admired luxury hotels, resorts, spas, villas, yachts, executive retreats...hand-picked by the editors of LuxuryTravelMagazine.com. Recommendations are unbiased because hotels do not pay to be listed on the site, they are selected for their ÂA-List AttributesÂ Â the signature qualities and unique experiences that set each of them apart. Travelers also have the opportunity to view ratings, guest and media reviews of hotels when available.
Other exciting features include a 'New Hotels' section so users of the site can be the first to know and the first to go, as well as exclusive Internet rates from the world's best hotels that are 110% guaranteed to be the lowest available. Destination guides assist in planning multi-stop trips.
ÂWe've built a web site that is far more than just a hotel booking site Â itÂs an ultimate trip planning resource,Â says Gray. Users can choose to book online or they can take the information they've gathered to their travel agent. LuxuryTravelMagazine.com fills a void in luxury travel by offering unrivalled listings, along with the tools and insight that let discerning travelers make informed decisions.
