Here is a small selection of luxury holidays that are currently available within countries that are placed on the ‘Amber list’. For more information, please contact us.
A memory-making escape at ÀNI Villa – Anguilla
This uber-luxurious property features ten suites and catering to only one group at a time, the staff here really know how to look after you – think private butlers, your own Executive Chef, housekeepers, and a children’s activity coordinator. So whether it’s knowing exactly how you like your margarita, or which of the children need a little encouragement to head on down to the beach, they’ll be on hand to cater to your every whim.
To get you on your way, in the calmest and safest of ways, your journey begins with a private airport experience. Avoiding the main terminals, crowds and queues, you’ll arrive directly at your very own lounge before passing through your personal check-in and security processes. Complimentary refreshments await in the privacy of your lounge so you can unwind whilst waiting to board. You’ll then be driven across the tarmac to the aircraft for your Business class flight to Antigua. On arrival, a private charter will whisk you away to Anguilla, where a private boat transfer awaits for your final leg of the journey.
For your peace of mind, the staff at ÀNI Villa are pre-tested and isolated prior to your arrival, and they will not leave the property at any time during your stay, so you can relax in the knowledge that guest safety is of utmost importance. Talking of relaxing, what you choose to do on your week away is completely up to you – the resort mantra is “it’s all yours” – and with customised itineraries you can include as much adventure, or relaxation as you desire.

Sacred island sanctuary on Lopud 1483 – Croatia
Situated just off the coast of Dubrovnik lies the car-free Croatian island of Lopud, perhaps the prettiest settlement of all the Elaphiti islands. It’s here that you will discover a 15th century monastery that has been lovingly transformed over the last two decades into a breath-taking boutique hotel. Comprised of five exquisite and uniquely designed suites for your exclusive use, it offers you the unique opportunity to ‘live like a collector’, as it is said to house the world’s largest privately owned art collection after Queen Elizabeth II.
Curated with your health and well-being in mind, your journey begins with a private airport experience. Avoiding the main terminals, crowds and queues, arrive directly at your very own lounge before passing through your personal check-in and security processes.

A resident chef will cater to all of your dining desires and whether you’re looking for a focus on wellness, active pursuits or culture, your stay can be personalised to suit the tastes of the group. Although only an hour by boat from Dubrovnik, here you’ll find a completely different pace of life to the city. Explore the hiking trails, sandy beaches and the Black Horizon Art Pavilion, or take to the water for a private boat trip around the island. Practice mindfulness in the sacred garden – a contemplative pathway with nine stops designed to allow you to connect to the deeper teachings of plant medicine and spirituality in the peaceful surroundings of the monastery grounds. The Sunset Terrace, located on the rooftop of the fortress offers pristine views of Lopud and the neighbouring Elaphiti islands and is the perfect place for stargazing under a glittering night sky.
