Phoenix (PRWEB) October 13, 2008
Raquel Baldelomar, a hospitality industry consultant and the official spokesperson for Luxury Travel & Living (http://www.LuxuryTravelandLiving.com), reminds travelers that luxury destinations continue to offer specific attractions other places do not offer. While not wholly immune from current global market volatility, luxury travel appeals to individuals who value exoticism and unparalleled service.
"The luxury travel market is fundamentally different than conventional vacation spots. The typical luxury patron, who is either a CEO or a successful independent professional, has certain expectations and wants a travel experience that only very few locales can provide. At the highest levels, people will pay a premium for the opportunity to visit places that combine extreme beauty and distinctive accommodations," says Raquel Baldelomar.
Notable destinations include:
- The Amalfi Coast
- The Maldives
Incomparable Standards: The Luxury Travel Experience
"When things get bad, the luxury market is insulated because of the types of people who stay in these hotels," states Bobby Bowers, senior vice-president of operations with Smith Travel Research in Hendersonville, Tenn. "The world's most private and luxurious locales excite people and forever generate interest among a diverse group of individuals. Top guests recognize this fact and appreciate these benefits, " states Baldelomar.
