Grace Ormonde Travel Romance Collection: The Most Romantic Honeymoon Locations
Traveling well is an art form that takes years to perfect. Under normal circumstances, it is a daunting undertaking, but add the pressure of finding the perfect spot for romance, a destination wedding or honeymoon, and it can be a challenging and stressful journey. There are hundreds of websites to cull through that feature hotels and resorts, but the new Grace Ormonde Travel Romance Collection at WeddingStyleMagazine.com is a carefully curated group of the finest luxury romance experiences available.
With twenty years of personal travel, plus countless photo shoots at luxury properties, Grace Ormonde, editor-in-chief of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, realized that she could share that firsthand knowledge to help her readers optimize their dreams. “When you explore our Travel Romance Collection you’ll find inspiration in our hand-picked, select group of the most extraordinary resorts in the United States and internationally and an easy portal to book your travel.” All entries on this elite list have magnificent views, first-class amenities, superb service, world-class spas and exquisite cuisine, but for Ormonde it is all about the “experience” each location provides.
“Let’s face it,” says Ormonde, “in today’s world, travel is not always glamorous, like when you need to wake up at 5 a.m. to make a flight.” With the rigors of most travel, simple amenities are as important to these experiences as are the most indulgent services. “A hot towel and a signature drink on arrival can set the tone for the entire stay,” says Ormonde. Travel Romance Collection bookings strive to eliminate the stress of traveling by providing a car at the airport to transport couples to their accommodations, chilled champagne waiting in guests’ rooms and complimentary spa services. Should problems arise, 24-hour concierge and travel assistance are part of the package.
Ormonde’s travel team is headed by Kristin Chambers, a romance travel expert. Chambers is keenly aware of the fact that her clients are “travelers, not tourists.” She assists readers in creating and booking the ultimate luxury destination wedding or honeymoon with unparalleled attentiveness to details. Destination “matchmaking” is Chambers’ forte. “Everyone sees romance differently,” she says, “so I have to be totally unbiased and carefully listen to our clients’ dreams.”
Scheduling a creative itinerary is easy with extensive international resources. “We stay on top of the newest restaurants, chefs and resorts and know local private guides that can orchestrate everything from wine tastings to island-hopping yacht excursions,” says Chambers.
Visitors to the website experience a visual feast of stunning photography from each resort providing a sense of familiarity with the setting. After that, the Travel Romance Collection reveals the many layers of each property. Features and videos about essential personnel such as chefs and wedding coordinators help create detailed portraits of destinations allowing viewers to make well-informed decisions.
The Grace Ormonde Travel Romance Collection is dedicated to making the selection and booking of your luxury travel effortless and worry-free. “For me, romance travel is all about being in love and being together and having unique experiences,” says Ormonde. “Nothing should get in the way of that.”
