Elegant Resorts is certainly adding a dash of luxury in the lifestyle of the UAE residents. You just name any of the lavish destinations from the world map and they would offer you a tailor-made travel itinerary exactly matching your likings and personality. In just few months of its UAE operations, Elegant Resorts has managed to win hundreds of hearts and now boasts of a loyal clientele in this part of the world.
However Elegant Resorts has carved its place as a reliable travel expert through its sheer commitment to excellence many years back as it is serving global customers from its UK office that was set up nearly three decades now.
It has recently expanded into the Middle East market and has opened a dedicated office in Dubai with a team of Arabic and English-speaking travel consultants, who are specialised in delivering the finest luxury holiday experiences to the discriminating patrons in the UAE and wider GCC region.
Anthony Challinor-Cole, who has joined the Dubai office in December 2015 as General Manager, Middle East, is leading the Elegant Resorts operations from the forefront now. His role requires him to oversee the entire operation of Elegant Resorts in the Middle East as he looks to build and cement the resorts’ presence in the region as a leading luxury travel company.
With a keen focus on further developing its tailor-made itineraries and programme, Anthony is looking forward to upgrade the offerings of the luxury market in the Middle East, while ensuring that exceptional client service standards are kept intact while following the world-class criterions.
While talking to Emirates Business regarding Elegant Resorts, Anthony said, “We have found UAE clients to be incredibly discerning when it comes to travel. Living, dining and enjoying leisure time surrounded by an abundance of five star hotels naturally set the bar high when it comes to delivering a luxurious holiday experience that goes the extra mile.”
The history of Elegant Resorts stretches back to 1988, when two of the UK’s luxury travel pioneers recognised a gap in the market for a travel company that offered only the finest hotels and first-class client service, delivered by an enthusiastic team of professional employees passionate about travel.
The duo then embarked on their journey to create Elegant Resorts in the heart of prosperous Cheshire county in the UK. With their sights firmly set on the upper end of the market, the vision of this award-winning British company was to include only those hotels, villas and resorts that could be said to deliver a genuinely luxurious experience.
By partnering with world’s major airlines, they are ensuring that the
experience of travelling in premium class – particularly in First and Club Class – complemented the luxury
While sharing the business prospects in Dubai, Anthony said, “Our Arabic and English speaking consultants who are passionate about travel and are true experts in their field, they create a tailored experience from our handpicked collection of beautiful hotels, villas and resorts worldwide. Through careful understanding of each client’s preferences and desires from their holiday, we match our clients’ requirements with the world’s very best accommodation, facilities and destinations – wherever they want to stay and whatever they want to do.”
