Elegant Resorts & Villas has merged with its sister brand, Alquemie, following the closure of international borders as a result of COVID-19.
Alquemie, a high-end Australian and South Pacific DMC previously named Wilderness Australia, is now looking towards the domestic market, according to David Greenland, CEO of the Concierge Travel Group (which owns Elegant Resorts and Alquemie).
“Since 2001, Alquemie has specialised in creating magical, high-end experiential travel and tailor-made luxury itineraries for international travellers,” he said.
“Now with the merge, we can offer Australian travel agents our expertise and access to the most exclusive properties and experiences in Australia.”
Greenland said the company wants to help domestic agents sell the same kind of Australian-style safaris and experiences it would sell to Africa, South America or Europe.
“Most Australians have no idea how many world-class experiences are in their own backyard and we want to help agents get this message out,” he said.
If you’d like to learn more about the experiences on offer, Alquemie is hosting a webinar training session for Aussie agents.
