Summer seems to be getting better and better and here at JG Black Book, we are beyond thrilled to be partnering with such exciting experiences. From luxury African safaris and island paradises to the most exclusive and authentic journeys in South America, there’s plenty of travel inspiration to go around.
Fairmont The Norfolk
Traditional, yet refurbished to offer modern flair, the hotel is just minutes from Nairobi’s top attractions, including the home of Karen Blixen, author of Out of Africa and David Sheldrick’s Wildlife Trust Elephant Sanctuary. Artisanal craft shops and chic boutiques line the nearby streets. The international jet-set crowd and savvy locals flock to the Lord Delamere Terrace for its all-day worldly cuisine, while guests find respite throughout the tropical landscaped grounds, in the heated outdoor swimming pool and in the lavish guest rooms and suites.
Fairmont Mara Safari Club
Masai Mara, Kenya
Reopened to great acclaim following an extensive renovation, the Fairmont Mara Safari Club sits on the edge of the Seventh “New” Wonder of the World, Kenya’s Maasai Mara.
Consistently ranked as a favorite luxury resort, the property is surrounded on three sides by the Mara River and, in addition to incredible game-viewing opportunities to glimpse the region’s “Big Five” wildlife, offers fine dining, massages in private tents, a swimming pool, a traditional Boma, spacious decks overhanging the river and luxurious and romantic tent-style accommodations. For those seeking the quintessential African safari experience, this is a superb choice.
Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club
A dreamy setting for relaxing in the shadow of majestic Mount Kenya, the Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club is a soothing respite for those who seek to golf, swim, ride horseback, play croquet, visit local wildlife and be pampered in all possible respects.
Days are spent on an enormous range of attractions and activities here in Nanyuki, Kenya, while evenings bring superb dining and complete comfort in the luxuriously appointed guest rooms of this lavish resort, set on more than 100 acres of landscaped gardens for an oasis-like ambience – it’s little wonder the resort is so award-winning and beloved worldwide.
The Island House
Opening late spring 2015, The Island House is a 30-room boutique hotel and cultural gathering space in western Nassau, Bahamas. Designed with both visitors and the local community in mind, and as a symbiotic extension of the surrounding environment, it will offer a unique experience that merges the height of contemporary luxury with the understated elegance of authentic island life.
