Following its fall 2020 launch, Kensington Tours has expanded its unique Resort Collection to be a fully global offering, with new itineraries in the Maldives, Mauritius, and the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean, as well as in the Bahamas

Now travellers can combine some of the world’s most exquisite resort destinations with once-in-a-lifetime local experiences that are personally tailored to them. 

And agents have even more ways to deliver a unique getaway to their clients with the 24/7, single-point-of-contact support for which Kensington Tours is renowned for.

Enhanced getaways

The Resort Collection is designed for travellers who want to relax on a pristine beach, while also seeking more from their getaway. 

It allows them to enjoy their escape in combination with authentic local experiences one on one with local experts and private guides – experiences which (in keeping with Kensington Tours’ expertise in creating custom private-guided travel itineraries) are always tailored to each traveler’s own unique interests.

“We're so thrilled to make The Resort Collection a truly global offering,” said Helen Giontsis, President of Kensington Tours. “With the addition of the Bahamas, the Maldives, Mauritius and the Seychelles, travellers now have even more extraordinary ways to enjoy a world-class island or beach escape in combination with the authentic local best of their destination. It’s a magical pairing that no other travel company can do. It’s what resort life should be.”

Befitting the high standards of The Resort Collection, each of the new experiences is crafted around a carefully curated selection of world-class resorts. 

Some unforgettable properties that are included:

  • The Bahamas: Caerula Mar Club Resort, The Ocean Club
  • The Maldives: Velaa Private Island, Nautilus, One&Only Reethi Ra
  • Mauritius: Oberoi Beach Resort, One&Only Le Saint Geran
  • The Seychelles: Mahe, Anantara Maias

Local experiences 

Combined with these resorts are personalized local experiences that are relevant to each client’s interests or passions. 

Working with local experts in each region across a wide range of areas – including sailing, scuba diving, fine dining, history, spirits, ecology, architecture, and many more – a fully personalized itinerary is created for each client. Here are just a few examples of the kinds of local experiences that can be created just for them:

  • Immersing yourself in the vivid colours of vast schools of fish as you snorkel the reefs of the Baa Atoll, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, with your private guide.
  • Enjoying a romantic private dinner on the beach near your villa on Fregate Private Island, then taking a long starlit stroll along the sand.
  • Seeing Nassau up close through James Bond’s eyes with your private guide, while staying at the same resort as the character did in the movie Casino Royale.
  • Having your private guide introduce you to talented Mauritian artists who work in media as diverse as ceramics, sugarcane leaves, bamboo and coconut.

The Kensington Tours’ Destination Expert conveniently arranges all elements of experiences upfront, so the agent doesn’t have to worry about making any additional bookings. 

A single point of contact is also provided throughout the trip in case clients want to change their itinerary. And if any issues arise, agents can rest assured that Kensington Tours’ exceptional 24/7 support will take care of them.

Kensington Tours’ aim is always for their clients to feel confident and safe on their journey. 

As travel resumes, they have implemented a new set of Safe Travel standards – specific and stringent precautions that ensure a positive travel experience for their clients, and a safe working environment for local teams and hotel partners.

Agents can also earn up to $400 in prepaid VISA gift cards on each of their first five Resort Collection bookings (paid out after initial deposit), made before February 28, 2021 with travel scheduled through to the end of 2021. Some restrictions apply.

Also, when you book before Feb. 28, 2021, travellers may postpone a trip or cancel it for a 100% future travel credit. The travel investment is always fully protected, including airfare. No strings attached.
