Inspiration for your luxury travel experience

All the way from the first spark of inspiration down to the perfect cocktail before the sun sets – you don’t want to miss a single thing. Our role is to find that perfect sunset spot you’ve always dreamed of and to make sure that your journeys are filled with moments like these. If you are not sure where to travel but you feel the need to escape, to treat yourself or learn something new – well, we are ready to inspire you with our expertise and insights for you to find your very own “Passion Place”. Like a perfectly tailored dress or suit, each and every journey is unique – just as each traveller is unique. We design each trip individually, recommend the best hotels and plan tailor-made experiences for you and your loved ones. Explore our travel styles and find out which one will suit you best for your next journey. We can’t wait to hear your ideas, so we can turn them into reality interjecting our knowledge and creatively tailoring your trip around your needs.
People often say they can create their own round trip and we are sure many could. But we know we can deliver so much more than just a holiday. We provide a complete experience covering more than you knew was possible. It’s about being one step ahead of the crowds, having a personally selected guide that shares his local knowledge or being whisked away to a private luxury tented camp just for you in a Cambodian jungle, taking a sea kayak to a private island for a romantic dinner as the sun sets on a glistening sea. Getting to destinations like Asia is the easy part, getting around efficiently and having unique and memorable moments, that’s where your Travel Designer comes into the picture. With our deep understanding of the destinations and our vast experience in the travel industry, we shall handcraft a perfect journey just for you, making sure you find the hidden gems of each country. Travel isn’t one size fits all; it’s about creating bespoke experiences, ones you won’t find in any usual brochures. It’s the welcoming smile at the air bridge when you just landed, the warm “good morning” of your driver and every little detail planned with care, passion and always up-to-date expertise.
When you are looking for a city break in Europe’s most vibrant cities such as Paris, London, Madrid, Berlin, Amsterdam or Stockholm, we will recommend the best hotels or – if you can’t decide for just one place to go – we will customize your city-hopping to explore Europe’s most popular places. The central location of The Passionist’s head quarter in Germany – the heart of Europe – allows us to explore each and every corner of the most fascinating cities and to stay up to date with the latest travel trends. We partner with the most renowned luxury hotel brands that will add up to your experience with personalized service and exclusive amenities. All hand-picked and chosen to spoil you with sophisticated and heartwarming hospitality. To spice up your trip, we will arrange for the best local guides and activities that will take you behind the scenes and off the beaten tracks.
For us, safaris are among the most breath-taking journeys we get to experience ourselves and plan for our travellers. Whether in the depths of the South African bush, on the banks of the Zambezi River or in the heart of the spectacular Okavango Delta – each of these places has very its own magic. Being able to experience the wonders of our earth always leaves us amazed and sometimes speechless. We will probably carry many of these moments and encounters in our hearts forever. Whether you dream of tracing South Africa’s Big Five, trekking to the gorillas in Rwanda or experiencing the spectacle of the Great Migration in Kenya – tell us your safari dream and we will plan your very own rendezvous with the African wilderness. We have travelled to the most beautiful safari areas of South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Zambia, Kenya and Tanzania ourselves and know the best wildlife reserves, lodges and guides. We work directly with our partners to ensure that you enjoy only the best quality, comfort and seamless transfer service on your trip.
Island & Beach escapes
Grab your sunscreen and the latest beach read for a trip that swaps busy schedules and endless to-do lists for sunshine, sand, and ocean air. As we are passionate sun-seekers ourselves, we know the most pristine beaches and island escapes for you to unwind and explore. Hop on a surfboard and catch waves off the coast of France or Bali, explore bays and beaches by boat, or let that sun work on you in a private, poolside cabana. From Greek Islands like Mykonos or Santorini or the Balearic Islands of Mallorca and Ibiza to the pearls of the Indian Ocean like the Seychelles and the Maldives, all the way down to the beaches of Thailand and Malaysia – with The Passionist you will discover fifty shades of blue and turquoise around the globe, always keeping your eyes on the essential – the ocean. Pick the location you’ve always dreamed of or let your travel designer surprise you with a destination you may never have heard of (ever heard of São Tomé & Príncipe, by the way?). Plan a staycation on your favorite island or hop around. Stay in the most sophisticated luxury island resorts or cruise around on your private yacht. Just bring your beach attire and we will take care of the rest.
Your perfect match: Found. Your dream wedding: Successful. After the party planning and Champagne toasts are done, spend those blissful newlywed moments unwinding in an overwater bungalow in the Indian Ocean, in an intimate safari lodge in the South African wilderness, in a honeymoon suite hidden among the rolling hills of Tuscany in Italy, or in your private, fully serviced sea-view villa on an island of Thailand. Icing on that multitiered cake!
Travelling with your loved ones. Isn’t that the most beautiful time of the year? We love to put the biggest smiles on your kids’ faces – and let’s make it a multigenerational feast having grandma and grandpa alongside. We know the most beautiful family destinations around the world. How about some beachy moments in Europe which are easy to combine with urban discoveries for the whole family. Or let’s plan a family safari in South Africa, where all generations sit in front of the fireplace and experience memories for a lifetime. And not to forget the Asian hospitality in Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia and Malaysia, where families are welcomed with open arms.
During a time of containment and isolation, we’ve all faced a massive variety of challenges. Leaving us feeling exhausted, lethargic, bored, confused or even a bit lost and numb. While life has picked up pace again, you might still struggle with the mental and physical affects of the pandemic. Whether you are facing profound challenges in your “new normal” or simply need a time-out from your routine – pushing the pause button and taking care of yourself is the most liberating and sustainable investment you can make. This is our conviction. Our travel designers will assist you with planning your “Me-time” based on your needs and goals. With empathy and a broad network of experts taking care of you. We partner with the best wellness-clinics and resorts in Europe and Asia who offer a variety of therapeutic approaches ranging from light wellness-therapies, fitness programs, stress- and weight management, Traditional Chinese Medicine to holistic Yoga and Ayurveda retreats. All beautifully located and connected to nature for you to breath deeply and find rest and rejuvenation for your body, mind and soul
For those who love exclusive travel and do not want to commit to a single destination, a luxury cruise is just the thing. With our selected partners like Silversea Cruises, Ponant, Aurora Expeditions and Explora Journeys you will explore the most beautiful and spectacular destinations on this earth – with comfort at the highest level on board small ships. Large enough for everything you need, small enough to create a personal atmosphere and offer first-class, individual service. Our partners share our enthusiasm for exploring remote ports that larger ships cannot call at. The small, but refined luxury vessels can navigate narrow waterways to reach the heart of cities or moor directly at the pier, while other ships have to anchor offshore. Look forward to an exclusive yet casual lifestyle, gourmet cuisine, exceptional shore programmes curated and accompanied by experts, and excellent entertainment on board. A relaxed journey begins with a carefree arrival and departure. Together with our partners, we offer a wide range of services for your luxury cruise – from flights and transfers to tailor-made pre- and post-cruise programmes.
