Welcome to my very own selection of hotels and travel services for the discerning traveler who values authentic experiences.
My love affair with luxury travel started when I was very little. As the daughter of a passionate hotelier, I was familiar with all the nooks and corners of hotels from a young age. I spent my teenage years exploring every facet of running a luxury hotel – from the housekeeping department to the front desk. I was also privileged to travel to remarkable destinations and to be exposed to a wide variety of cultures and sceneries.
These unique experiences have fashioned who I am today. They have defined my passion for luxury travel, which I want to share with you at Rebecca Recommends.
My client list showcases an eclectic mix of luxury hotels, residences and services from the United Kingdom and other destinations around the world. I want to work with like-minded people who believe that service is at the heart of our craft. In a world where truly good service seems harder to find, a real desire to serve and exceed people’s expectations is so important. Service that is genuine and heartfelt will always be remembered.
Rebecca Recommends is a staunch supporter of ethical travel, no matter which corner of the world calls to you. I firmly believe we travelers have the enormous power to benefit local communities, especially in developing countries which offer vibrant authenticity in their experiences, but where economies and livelihoods are heavily dependent on tourism. As cultured citizens of the world, we are able to choose ethical destinations based on values we identify with, like human rights, environment protection, social welfare and animal rights.
I think smaller is beautiful, and I love to work with owners or managers who are personally invested in their businesses, care for people and plan for longevity in their company. It is extremely fulfilling to recommend the amazing hotels and destination service specialists that we work with and instill enthusiasm about new or unknown destinations. It is a thrill to share local treasures – like a little known pub, a quirky gallery, an adventurous outdoor activity or a spontaneous visit to a private home.
Today Rebecca Recommends is one of the leading luxury travel representation companies in the United States. I am also a proud member of Carriage Trade Association, San Francisco, an invitation only non-profit, along with the most respected travel professionals in the luxury travel industry, and a board member of Ethical Traveler, a non-profit organization dedicated to building awareness about the social and environmental impact of travel. I am pleased to give back to an industry that continually brings so much to my life.
