At Luxury Link, we’re committed to discovering the world’s finest hotels and resorts, and offering them to you as part of unique, curated vacation experiences not available on other travel sites.
Therefore, it’s probably no surprise that our staff is a globetrotting bunch ourselves; we relish in every opportunity to visit Luxury Link properties ourselves, sharing our knowledge with travelers like you!
I had a chance to poll some colleagues and find out what Luxury Link vacation experience most resonated with them personally, asking one simple question – What makes this property truly luxurious?
Scott (CEO) – Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, Zimbabwe
I stayed at Victoria Falls Safari Lodge in Zimbabwe with my wife and had what can only be described a as magical and luxurious experience. The rooms are Spartan but clean and feature balconies that overlook a watering hole for animals. You can enjoy a glass of your favorite beverage and watch the wildlife as the sun sets on the African landscape. Simply breathtaking. The hotel restaurant offers inside and outside seating with an amazing menu of both exotic and mainstream fare. It's an experience I will never forget.
Bart (Operations) – Estancia La Jolla, California
The rooms are understated, elegant, and quite. We love the quite gardens throughout the property. Our package included breakfast at Adobe El Restaurante, and dinner at Mustangs and Burros. The service and food at both are outstanding. The romantic vibe at Mustangs and Burros feels like an old Southern California ranch house; far away from the crowds of San Diego. The highlight for us is the saltwater pool, whirlpool, and of course the spa –complete with a eucalyptus steam room.
Tony (Marketing) - Kamandalu Resort and Spa, Ubud, Bali
My wife and I booked Kamandalu Resort in Ubud, Bali on Luxury Link or our honeymoon. Kamandalu is a luxurious resort with expansive lotus ponds and gardens, a great swimming pool and terraced views that are breathtaking. Our package included a 60-minute massage for each of us, a gourmet meal under the stars, breakfast each morning & more. Our room was beautiful, full of light and had a small infinity pool right outside with stunning views. Kamandalu Resort was luxury at it’s finest because of the attentive and friendly staff. The luxury amenities included with the package made it a complete five-star experience.
Greg (Media Sales) – The Stafford London
Back in 2007, my wife and I stayed at The Stafford London and had the privilege to spend our last two nights in one of their cozy Carriage House rooms. More than just a room, The Stafford London is a luxury experience which exudes romance, elegance and charm. Although the trip was years ago, I still find myself dreaming about the private Carriage House entry, the cobblestone courtyard, the quintessential British lobby and dining areas, and the luxury and grace of The Stafford London.
Karina (Marketing) – Secrets Aura Cozumel
This was my favorite place to stay. The room was very spacious with two bathrooms, a bathtub, and a private lap pool. Our balcony had a great view of the main pool and the ocean. We were greeted with fruit platter and champagne at the room. By the second day the servers greeted us by name and were always ready to go out of their way to please us. The comfortable, luxurious island atmosphere was the perfect scenario for a few days of pure relaxation and restoration.
Kat (Accounting) – Red Mountain Resort, St. George, Utah
Upon arrival at the St George airport, we were greeted with a huge smile, a cool, scented cloth and a bottle of water. I had landed in heaven. I started each day with a guided hike. Different guides and locations each day, as well as different levels of intensity. With each step, I felt the stress from my daily life melting away. Meals are another great plus. Breakfast & lunch are a buffet, with a huge selection of healthy choices. When I arrived back home, my friends told me I was "glowing" - of course I was, I just returned from Heaven!
Stefany (Media Sales) – One and Only La Palmilla, Los Cabos, Mexico
This was our honeymoon spot and we were spoiled for life. While the property was situated on one of the most breath-taking beaches, the staff catered to every need from reoccurring foot massages, to a personal butler, to making sure every meal was to our liking. Accommodations faced the ocean and were true to the Mexican heritage. Prepare yourself for the ultimate vacation when staying at La Palmilla.

…and finally, my turn
Ben (Marketing) – lebua at State Tower, Bangkok, Thailand
A true urban oasis in bustling Bangkok, lebua at State Tower takes luxury to the next level in a region of the world with already-lofty service standards. A personal concierge introduces you to every corner of your two-room Riverview suite, turn-down service includes pillow chocolates and slippers placed bedside, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the included breakfast buffet; above-and-beyond anything Las Vegas has to offer, with gourmet dishes from across the globe, catering to the hotel’s international clientele.
