Luxury Travel Advisor’s ULTRA Summit

May 21-23, 2019 | Reunion | Kissimmee, FL

This exclusive, invite-only event focused on the luxury travel market brings together world-class travel agency owners and managers with the most opulent, luxury suppliers to cultivate collaboration, share insights, and help carve a path into the future of luxury travel.

Here are some highlights of the trip:

Cape Town’s Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa, poised above the Atlantic Ocean against the Twelve Apostles mountain range, has both sea-facing and mountain-facing guest rooms. Guests can enjoy sundowners while watching the sunset over the Atlantic, go hiking amid the fynbos of Table Mountain National Park, enjoy the flavorful international cuisine at Azure Restaurant, or enjoy a body treatment at the relaxing spa.

At Lion Sands, a private game reserve within the Sabi Sand Reserve, guests are able to spend extended periods of time watching wildlife in its natural habitat. Only a limited number of vehicles are allowed on the property, which means there are no crowds to compete with. Vehicles are also taken off-road in certain instances, depending on bush conditions and specific sightings. Tinga Lodge, located on the banks of the Sabie River, offers a private plunge pool and deck, 24-hour air conditioning, and a range of luxury amenities.

Over 40 different species of mammals — including the Big Five — as well as 350 bird species roam Kapama Private Game Reserve, which spans 40,000 acres of pristine African bush. Visitors have the opportunity to observe these creatures in the wild with twice-daily guided game drives, nature walks, and elephant encounters. The Karula luxury lodge offers views of the Klaserie River through floor-to-ceiling windows, private pools, outdoor showers and a common lounge, bar and library.
