About Elegant Resorts


Elegant Resorts celebrates its 30th birthday in 2018. Founded in 1988 by luxury travel industry pioneers, we began in Chester with a small team and the aim to fill a gap in the UK market, providing tailor-made luxury holidays to the finest hotels in the world, complemented by the highest standards of client service and travel, particularly in First and Club.

Since then, we have gone from strength-to-strength, winning many prestigious industry awards and being at the forefront of travel innovations such as the concept of the modern travel brochure and being the first UK tour operator to be appointed a Virgin Galactic Accredited Space Agent. We also hold the record for sending the most UK clients to the Caribbean on the legendary Concorde aircraft.

Elegant Resorts offers discerning clients an ever-expanding, eclectic portfolio of luxury holidays and bespoke experiences that span the globe. Our team of highly knowledgeable, expert Travel Consultants is passionate about luxury travel and provides clients with the benefits of first-hand travel experience, while our supportive concierge team offers exemplary service throughout each client’s booking.

2018 promises to be a hugely exciting year for us, with a number of celebrations, events and special offers planned throughout the year, as well as an expanded selection of inspirational destinations, products and thrilling experiences to tempt travellers who enjoy the finer things in life. We have also welcomed our new Managing Director, Lisa Fitzell, who has joined the team based at the Chester headquarters, bringing a wealth of travel industry and business expertise to the company.

The Caribbean Early Days And Concorde


The luxury Caribbean market, which was the main area of Elegant Resorts’ expertise, was the initial focus twenty-five years ago. Travel to exotic destinations within the Caribbean was aspirational to many and, despite an economic down-turn the company achieved a profit within its first year. A major contributor to the success of the early years was the weekly winter service to Barbados from British Airways by Concorde. With a flying time of less than four hours, clients could leave the UK and be on the golden beaches of the Caribbean that same afternoon. Elegant Resorts was credited with booking more arrivals to Barbados on Concorde than any other travel company and it was a sad day on 30 August 2003 when the last scheduled supersonic service flew from Barbados. Clients who flew – and even chartered – Concorde now had to find a new mode of transport; the business then started to focus on private jet travel.

Elegant Resorts grew from strength to strength and gradually, over time, other areas of the world were added; meaning today, our portfolio now also comprises hotels, resorts, villas and private islands in the Indian Ocean, Arabian Gulf, Middle East, Mexico, North and South America, Canada, Africa, Europe, North Africa, Asia and Australasia. In addition, we offer a range of experiences, from luxury cruising, yachting and skiing holidays to a selection of adventure holidays – and not forgetting space travel, for our more daring clients.

Our Travel Experts


Our continuing dedication to staff training, means that Elegant Resorts’ Travel Consultants are some of the most knowledgeable in the travel industry, with an unerring ability to match clients with their ideal holiday. We are very proud to have a long-serving team who believe in delivering uncompromising service. This extends overseas too, where we have established teams working their magic in Barbados, Antigua, Dubai and Mauritius.

Both overseas and here in Chester, there’s a friendly atmosphere conducive to a good working environment. We like to enjoy ourselves and have had some fantastic occasions over the years that have included everything from home-grown theatre productions to events that our supplier and business partners join in with and every year we host an awards ceremony in London to say “thank you” to the people we work with. Testimony to our extraordinary relationships with our friends and colleagues are all the wonderful awards we have received over the years.

It’s these relationships that enable us to bring our clients exceptional experiences throughout the year and ensure that they can rely on us for all their travel needs.

Luxury Holidays

Space Flights

We take great delight in sending our clients on fabulous holidays in this world; now we can send them to another... In 2006, Elegant Resorts was the very first UK travel company to be appointed Virgin Galactic’s accredited Space Agent, selling tickets on the planet’s first commercial sub-orbital space flights. We are very proud of our own Accredited Space Agents who have been put through their paces as ‘space cadets’ and experienced for themselves the dynamics of space and the effects of G-force, during a sub-orbital space flight simulation.
