By Aysia Reed
Marriott International and Quintessentially have collaborated to create luxury road trips for travelers that are ready to up their game!
Nine different trips are available on these new itineraries, all with immersive experiences that are devoted to embellishing the lifestyle of travelers and to provide meaningful memories that will last a lifetime.
Each destination on the itinerary is promised a chic Marriott estate, a high-end cuisine experience, and astonishing views.
The estates include The Ritz-Carlton, The Luxury Collection, St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, EDITION, and more to equip guests with the most ultimate trip.
Curating Unique Experiences
Quintessentially has specialized in curating the unique experiences for each of the locations. Quintessentially is the world’s leading luxury lifestyle group, so a trip organized by the company will be nothing short of extravagant.
The package’s locations range from the United States to countries in Europe.
Marriott International’s joining forces with Quintessentially was a result of a change of tendencies of travelers wanting to be safe, and follow health guidelines. Road trips are the new craze and are a cautious alternative from past journeys.
One lavish experience is “The Classic” package.
The total cost for the six-night experience, is $14,245 for 2 adults.
The nights are spent at St. Regis in San Francisco, two are spent at the Ritz- Carlton Bacara in Santa Barbara, and the last two are spent at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel.
The car hire is a Ford Mustang Convertible, or a plus Valet parking at all hotels.
Seaplanes in San Francisco
In San Francisco, guests are able to sail by sunset or enjoy an evening seaplane ride. In Santa Barbara, cycle the overlook accompanied by a professional biker.
Exploring the Channel Islands is a prime highlight of The Classic package.
A wildlife expert guides a tour of the sea caves, otherwise known as “‘The Galapagos of North America.”
For a thrilling experience, guests can catch a wave at Laguna Niguel. A professional instructor gives surf sessions right off the coast of California’s waters.
