Enjoy Authentic Experiences and Unforgettable Escapes Around the World
With so many choices now back on the map when it comes to travel, a cultural break no longer needs to translate to museum visits in European cities and ancient ruin exploration dating back to the archaic years. Culture can take many forms, from cooking with locals to embarking on a safari to witness the rarest primates in Africa. According to global travel network, Virtuoso®, 37% of high-net-worth individuals are travelling for cultural reasons, in search of authenticity and out-of-the-ordinary local experiences. Storytelling is a significant component of what travellers want: experiences to take home with them, to go back to their offices and dinner tables and share with their friend groups. With an enticing portfolio that spans the globe, Cenizaro Hotels & Resorts focuses on just that – offering enriching moments perfectly suited to the cultural traveller. From Tunisia to Mauritius, each property provides experiences unique to its own corner of the world and helps create everlasting memories.
