A message from our CEO


Dear LUXEsters,

Since day one, LUXE has always been about inspiring wanderlust and global gallivanting, so it’s been tough to see the world shutting its doors, country by country, as COVID-19 makes its way around the globe.

Firstly, we hope that everyone in the extended LUXE family is safe and essentially where they want to be (even if for longer than originally planned).  Secondly, rest assured that we at LUXE HQ are working hard to ensure continuity of service during this difficult time. 

We may be a little slower at sending out your gorgeous new print guide, or there may be fewer updates on your digital guide in the short term, but we are staying in close contact with our fabulous resident editors around the globe to bring you the best of what’s new—and accessible—when we can. 

Thirdly, we’d like to invite you to join us as we pause and celebrate everything that we love about travel, albeit from our armchairs. In the coming weeks, you’ll find more content than ever on our website (luxecityguides.com) championing the artisans and chefs, jewellers and hoteliers, baristas and mixologists, and architects and designers who deserve the spotlight and perhaps need the most support during this time of cancelled flights and tumbleweed streets.  

Finally, LUXE has always been powered by passion, professionalism, creativity and candour, and I still strongly believe in the transformative power of informed travel and the inherent wisdom of our community of like-minded travellers. As 2020 unfolds, I look forward to connecting with you more directly as we share inspiration, travel locally, and get ready for a LUXE-fuelled future once more.
