Fantasy Friday: Four Seasons Adds Americas To 2014 Private-Jet Trips

April 5, 2013 at 3:26 PM | by | ()

Yep, it's Friday and time for a little fantasy travel...this one's so very, very exceptional...

Remember when we dreamt about that little Four Seasons private jet trip last year? The September 2013 journey might already be sold out, but two new itineraries have just been announced for next year. In addition to a slightly different selection of destinations for the round-the-world version, Four Seasons is adding a “Rediscover the Americas” option for spring.

The basics remain the same: private jet travel, dedicated staff along the way, and of course Four Seasons hotels in every location. The size of the group has decreased to 56 passengers however, and while inflight you’ll be able to Instagram and Vine away, courtesy of on-board internet.

Go Around The World, Four Seasons Style

Four Seasons Maldives at Kuda Huraa

Feeling blue because you weren't one of the lucky winners of Sofitel's round-the-world dream trip? Four Seasons could have the perfect answer if you have a bit of spare cash lying around. Like $71,000 of spare cash. That amount gets you a space on an Around-The-World Tour By Private Jet. Yes, we're dreaming again, but it's Friday, so why not?

Knowing Four Seasons, this isn't your average trip: you'll be taking a 22-day voyage by private plane with a maximum of 76 guests. There's expedition staff to accompany you, including a dedicated physician (!), private chef, expert lecturers, and a Four Seasons concierge.

A room at Sofitel So Bangkok

Always wanted to live out your own round-the-world trip dream? Now you have your chance to win one, courtesy of Sofitel Hotels & Resorts. Inspired by the 1001 nights tales and the novel "Around the World in 80 days", Sofitel is running a competition on www.sofitel80nights.com to win a number of travel prizes.

All you need to do is register on the website and choose eight destinations from the Sofitel network worldwide that you would pick for your dream trip. One winner will receive 31 complimentary nights for two in a selection of Sofitel Hotels and two round the world passes from Skyteam (the airline alliance that includes Air France / KLM and Delta Airlines). Seven other people will win seven nights for two at one of their selected Sofitel destinations.

Want to up your chances? Join LeClub Accor, Sofitel's parent group frequent guest programme, become a fan of Sofitel on Facebook, or invite friends to participate, for five more chances to enter.

The lobby at Sofitel Chicago Water Tower

We wouldn't struggle to put together our eight destinations. We'll start with a few days at Sofitel Chicago Water Tower, then head south for some time in Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires. From there, we'll head across the date line to Sofitel Sydney, making our way up to Asia, stopping at the designer Sofitel So Bangkok. For a bit of history, we'll add Sofitel Legend Hanoi Metropole in Vietnam, and since we've never been to Cambodia, we'd include Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeetra. Finally, a bit of rest, culture, and good food at the Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese would round up our trip quite nicely we think.

Where would you go? Tell us in the comments!

As with all competitions, we do recommend to read the fine print on the website for detailed rules, hotels included, and terms & conditions.
