How Inspirato’s Luxury Travel Concierge Service Goes Above and Beyond

Celebrating a special occasion with your closest loved ones is always a great reason to take a vacation, but when you’re stuck planning the whole thing yourself, it can feel like you’re not truly able to unwind. But Inspirato members have peace of mind knowing that their luxury accommodations will meet or surpass their expectations—and that when you’re on vacation, every last detail will be handled by a dedicated, Inspirato luxury travel concierge.

When you arrive at an Inspirato home, an on-site Destination Concierge will greet you, give you a tour of the home, and ensure that everything is as you expected. From then, your luxury travel concierge will check in with you daily.

He or she can make last-minute dinner reservations, arrange transportation for an excursion, book a private chef, deliver groceries, and handle any maintenance issues during your stay should they arise. Inspirato’s on-site team is expertly connected and familiar with the best local vendors and tour operators to recommend, too.

How Inspirato’s Destination Planners and Luxury Travel Concierge Delivered a Milestone Birthday to Remember

Inspirato member, Rachel Kalafer, relied on Inspirato’s destination planners and luxury concierge service when she was planning her husband’s 40th birthday. Originally, she had started planning a party near home, but as the guest list grew, the burden of figuring out logistics started to overshadow the fun. Rather than get lost in the details, Rachel decided to switch gears—and have Inspirato take care of the travel planning.

She reserved three Inspirato homes in Punta Cana, Dominican RepublicVilla Ana, Villa Bagua, and Villa Caona—that are located side-by-side in a private enclave with landscaped grounds, oceanfront lawns, and a private pool at each. Together, the three homes form a secluded compound perfect for a large group—and with a full 30 family members spanning three generations, Rachel says that having ample space for everyone was essential.

“I wanted it to feel like a resort for the weekend,” she says. The Inspirato planning team delivered on that vision, arranging an itinerary full of entertainment, dining, and activities that could all happen on-site, meaning all Rachel and her guests had to do was arrive and have a fantastic time.

The central house, Villa Bagua, became the party’s hub. All 30 guests came to the villa for buffet-style breakfasts, lunches, and dinners each day. Following their planning team’s recommendations, their menus featured Caribbean, Italian, Mexican, and other types of cuisine.

Even better, they hired bartenders to make cocktails (and kid-friendly drinks) every afternoon. Rachel says that having a private chef to make food and a luxury travel concierge to keep tabs on the entire operation was a major convenience. “Ordering for 30 people isn’t something I do every day, so they made it really easy. I didn’t have to know we were out of wine because the team was so on top of it.”

Of course, no party is complete without entertainment and activities. Massage therapists were on-site each day, and Rachel’s planning team arranged live music from two different bands and a DJ—they even sent Rachel YouTube clips of the performers so she could hear them beforehand. With so many activities planned around the homes, the group mainly stayed on the villas’ grounds, but they took an off-site catamaran excursion, and used their six included golf carts for trips to the nearby beach club.

Being able to rely on Inspirato for everything, from finding bartenders to cleaning up after the whole event, let Rachel focus her attention on what truly mattered—spending time with the people she cares about most. “It was really special having everyone together,” Rachel says. “It was a dream come true.”
