    A single point of contact, no matter your destination

    From your very first booking with us, one of our 30 Guest Experience Managers is assigned to you. That's the person who will accompany you on all your travels. A weekend getaway to the jagged mountains of Italy, a family holiday to Asia or a recommendation of a new restaurant to try, there is nothing your GEM can't help you with, and over time, your tastes and preferences will become theirs so they can better assist you.
