Four Seasons, known for its luxury hotels and resorts worldwide, is now taking on the air and sea with ultra-extravagant travel packages. The Four Seasons Private Jet Experience offers a trip of a lifetime for that hard-to-please traveler—a $190,000, 24-day trip to exotic destinations wrapped in private aviation pampering, with up to 47 other like-minded venturers.

With private jet journeys built around themed concepts such as African Wonders or Asia Unveiled, the voyage is as exciting as the destination. The Toronto-based hospitality company customized an Airbus A321LR with 48 handcrafted Poltrona Frau lie-flat seats, ottoman leg rests, a bar and lounge, in-flight Wi-Fi, portable iPads and plenty of walk-around space for long flights or short hops.

Companies can also charter the jet for corporate meetings and training programs in tandem with well-curated destination tours. Jets fly with a private chef, doctor and Four Seasons concierge or guest services manager.

African Wonders takes in Athens, the Pyramids, Serengeti, Mauritius, Rwanda, Victoria Falls and Johannesburg. Asia Unveiled stops in Tokyo, Bali, the Maldives, Hôi An, Bhutan, Angkor Wat and Bangkok. And Timeless Encounters flies through Oahu, Bora Bora, Sydney, Bali, Chiang Mai, Agra, Dubai, Prague and London.

Conquering the seas is also ahead for Four Seasons, with new by new luxury yacht tours that will launch in 2025. The boat is a new-build design for Four Seasons, followed by two others on order at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. The sea-based travel experience joins the likes of Ritz-Carlton and Aman, which have also created company-branded yacht experiences as extensions of their hotel footprint.

The first Four Seasons vessel will be 679 feet long and 88.6 feet wide with 14 decks. At an average cost of $4.2 million per suite, accommodations in this all-suite vessel will number 95 in all, with 800 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space with private terraces and nearly eight-foot ceilings, allowing the sun to stream in through floor-to-ceiling windows. The most expansive residence, the Funnel Suite, takes up four levels and offers more than 9,601 square feet of combined indoor/outdoor living space, including a private wading pool and dedicated spa area. Design concepts are attributed to Tillberg Design of Sweden for the exterior and guest suites. For communal areas and creative direction, London’s Martin Brudnizki Design Studio and Prosper Assouline of Paris were in charge.

Naturally, dining will be divine, from endless sushi to perfect champagne. A full-service spa, salon and individualized wellness programming onboard round off the ultimate luxury travel experience. Itineraries and dates will be announced as completion grows closer.
