Responding to the demand for more private luxury accommodations coupled with personalized private guided activities and curated experiences, Kensington Tours has launched Beyond Villas by Kensington Tours. 

This private villa portfolio is geared towards travellers who seek the ultimate privacy in the form of a luxury villa along with tailor-made customized itineraries with unique in-destination experiences.   

This “villa and beyond” approach includes luxurious private residences featuring amenities such as pools, Jacuzzis, private in-home gyms, expansive gardens, and more coupled with a range of add-on services including private chef, butler, in-villa spa treatments, and even yoga or fitness instructors for private sessions.  

Private guided tours, yacht charters and private jet services are all part of the villa offering.  

The portfolio includes an initial collection of more than 760 properties located in many of the most sought-after destinations in the Caribbean, Europe and South Africa with plans to expand the portfolio in Spring 2023 with an additional 200 plus properties across several continents.

There will also be a select offering of villas in the United States in Hawaii and high-end ski destinations. 

“Beyond Villas by Kensington Tours is a natural outgrowth of the increased demand for private luxury accommodations combined with the interest in highly curated personalized experiences whether it’s a chef preparing gourmet meals or organizing a private yacht charter,” said Helen Giontsis, president of Kensington Tours. “We have thoughtfully and intentionally created this collection of villas that meet the needs and standards of our clients and couple them with access to the best private guides and experts to complement the accommodations with an exclusive itinerary that is unique to what we do at Kensington Tours.” 

Guests can choose from fully curated itineraries or work with one of Kensington’s Villas Specialists to create their own. 

Sample itineraries include:   

Caribbean  Travellers can choose from an array of villa options across the region’s toniest islands including St. Bart’s Punta Cana, St. Martin Anguilla and others. What distinguishes the experience from other high-end trips at top resorts or residential homes are the addition of private planes, catamarans, immersive local tours and personal guides for distinct luxury yet private experiences.   

Europe: There is something for every kind of traveller from a chalet in the French Alps  where guests can enjoy a hot air balloon apres-ski; a Tuscan villa coupled with horseback riding, truffle hunting and wine tasting in Montepulciano; a villa on the edge of Ornos Bay in Mykonos  or St. Tropez where guests will enjoy a fully devoted Michelin-trained chef for the duration of their stay; private yacht charter to explore the Mediterranean and private heli-tour to enjoy views of the French Riviera. 

AfricaGuests can choose from villas in all corners of this continent replete with adventure throughout.  This includes South Africa where a villa in Cape Town serves as the launching point for a safari in Sabi Sands Park; private helicopter to an oysters, mussels and champagne lunch on the beach; off road excursion to Simon’s Town to spot rogue penguins on a secret beach that’s typically only accessible to locals, and more.   

Kensington Tours also recently launched Black Book by Kensington Tours. 

This exclusive collection of ultra-luxe VIP insider-style experiences is designed around prestigious global events with a carefully curated set of exclusive experiences that offer a level of access previously limited only to a handful of insiders, ranging from attending celebrity-hosted parties on Hollywood’s biggest night to private jet experiences to Europe and the White Desert in Antarctica
