Stay on a private island near Tahiti on a week-long business trip? Yes, please! Sometimes I really love my job… I just returned from a Classic Vacations meeting for their President’s Circle travel agencies (of which Andavo Travel is a proud member), held at The Brando.

I recently had the opportunity to attend Oahu’s Fourth Annual Hawaii Food & Wine Festival trip, hosted by Virtuoso. I was invited because of Andavo’s membership in Virtuoso’s luxury travel network. This extraordinary event was held on three different nights and featured over 40 celebrity chefs along with 20 of Napa Valley’s greatest wine estates. The events were: “A Lucky Modern Buddha Belly”, “Corks & Forks” and “It’s a Food World After All”. The closing evening was a clear night

After the opening session and my first introduction to Matthew Upchurch, the CEO of Virtuoso, I was very convinced of the importance of my being there!

If you want to try a new destination and enjoy luxury, why not visit Nicaragua and enjoy a stay at the five star Mukul Beach Golf and Spa Resort?
Everything is incredibly lush and luxurious. The beauty of the property and location can’t be properly relayed in photos. It is magical. The cliffs, the waves, the birds, the gentle shower just after lunch, and the pleasant, soft breeze all mesmerize your senses.

After a recent tour throughout Malawi (that long, skinny country sandwiched between Mozambique and Zambia in Africa), I knew enough to expect beauty when we landed on Likoma Island. I knew that Lake Malawi was vast and that lovely properties could be found. However, I did not expect the grandeur of the hidden gem I found in Kaya Mawa, the exclusive luxury resort.

I was able to go to Puerto Vallarta in April and spend four nights at the Marival Residences Luxury Resort. This beautiful property is only 30 minutes from the airport located in Nuevo Vallarta. It is a fairly new resort — only five years old.
