Artisans of Leisure


Though a relative newcomer, Artisans of Leisure has wasted no time mastering the essentials of luxury travel in Asia, Europe, and Latin America. The five-year-old outfitter has the bases covered—from finding the world's top spas (such as Japan's Gora Kadan on the flanks of Mount Fuji) to providing the easiest transport to rare Cambodian temples (via helicopter) to booking the most luxurious hotel in Queenstown (Eichardt's Private Hotel). It also runs philanthropic and ancestral heritage itineraries.
