Join Nicole Trilivas of Forbes Magazine as she explains why hotel and resort buyouts are on-trend to becoming even more popular in 2022.
Part boutique hotel and part private villa, private resorts are high-end hotel/villa hybrids deliberately designed to be booked out in full for exclusive use.
Hotel buyouts—where an individual or group buys out the whole of a property for the duration of their stay—was once only common practice among paparazzi-dodging celebrities or ultra-private, high-profile VIPs; however, during the pandemic, the heightened need for seclusion and security led to a rise in demand for exclusive takeovers among UHNWIs. Hotels rushed to adapt and change their operating model in order to accommodate the new requests, but for ÀNI Private Resorts, a collection of four prestigious properties based all around the world, there was no need to adjust.
Called “the world’s first collection of private resorts” by founder and owner Tim Reynolds, ÀNI Private Resorts proved to be ahead of the curve. “Combining the privacy of a villa with the staff, services and amenities of a five-star resort is the concept of ÀNI Private Resorts,” says Reynolds.
