Luxury Travel Manager

Laura

Born and raised in Cape Town, Laura’s Italian roots took her to Italy where she spent a year working in hotels, before returning to the Mother City to attend Hotel School. After a long career in hospitality, it was clear that travel was the next adventure. Two loves combined – groups & travel. She truly believes that if you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life. She is a people’s person who believes her most valuable asset is her relationship with both guests and suppliers.  On the home front, family is everything. Spending time with family and having that balance is something she strives for. There’s nothing like a weekend camping trip or a big family dinner table with lots of chatter.

Laura's top trips include:

  • A jam-packed incentive trip to Livingstone where 160 guests were active every minute of the day. Activities included walks in the wild, helicopter flips over the Victoria Falls, Elephant interactions, river rafting and even a lazy, boozy sunset cruise. Private group dinners included a fairy light dinner on the lawns along the Zambezi River and an elegant dinner overlooking the gorge with African music echoing into the night.
  • 4 back-to-back groups of 120 people each visited Cape Town to explore the city, dance with the folk in Llanga, enjoy beach games and a braai at Cape Point and hop from wine farm to wine farm while tasting the best wines. They didn’t want to go back home to Spain.
  • An incentive trip for 140 people to Mauritius where guests experience the luxury of the resort and all its culinary delight, private beach parties, a magical dinner under the Banyan tree, snorkelling and the best floatilla party under the sun.
