Experiential travel boutique DreamMaker’s $14 million private jet trip, Passport to 50, takes 50 circumnavigating the globe, covering 50,000 kms in the air— which also includes a $500,000 charity poker tournament with the world’s top-ranked poker player in the air. What’s more, World of Diamonds Group is creating something really special for the travellers: the world’s most expensive set of swizzle sticks fashioned from 18k gold set with white and blue diamonds worth $1 million
Experiential travel and event boutique DreamMaker has designed a trip around the globe aboard a privately outfitted Boeing 767 for its ultra-high net worth clientele. Titled Passport to 50, this is the ultimate experiential trip for the billionaire client, with up to 50 friends and family flying in tandem on a second Boeing Business Jet. Offered at $13,875,000, the DreamMaker experience is slated for August 2017, covering 20 cities in 20 days.
Passport to 50 is the first of its kind to completely circumnavigate the globe and cover 50,000 kilometers in the air. The trip includes a time ratio of 88% on the ground and 12% in the air. “Since 1988, we have been setting benchmarks in the experiential travel space worldwide,” says founder and experience designer℠ Gregory Patrick. “In 2017, we will be the first to introduce Experiential Aviation℠ as the pinnacle of private aviation.” Highlights in the air include a $500,000 charity poker tournament with the world’s top-ranked poker player, inflight yoga session, a fashion show, and a Master Sommelier.
DreamMaker has also appointed hypnotherapist April Norris to develop a holistic program that integrates cutting-edge wearable sleep technology with alternative wellness techniques such as hypnotherapy, Reiki healing, Ayurvedic medicine, and the attention of a Doctor of Acupuncture. “It is irrelevant how big and beautiful your private jet is if you are unable to relax comfortably or get the required amount of sleep on the plane,” says Patrick. To ensure the utmost comfort for its guests, Passport to 50 will boast a one-to-one ratio of guest to staff, with a cast of 50 hand-picked professionals, each experts in their respective fields.
And if all of this wasn’t enough to create the most unique travel experience, partner World Of Diamonds group has been commissioned to create a super luxurious amenity for the travellers—a set of 18-karat gold swizzle sticks set with white and blue diamonds worth a total of $1 million. “DreamMaker’s commission demonstrates our expertise in creating spectacularly bespoke pieces out of fancy colored diamonds,” said Director Karan Tilani. Crafted into a spinning globe atop the 50 swizzle sticks are 20 white sparklers, each representing every city landing of Passport to 50. One rare fancy blue diamond, a specialty of the diamond mining conglomerate, evokes the blue skies traversed on this trip.
And to enhance the ‘Passport to 50’ experience, London’s Hotel 41 will be the first in the world to completely rebrand its identity to “Hotel 50”. The hotel will chip out its marble tile in the foyer, commission newly monogrammed bed and bath linens, and raise a “Hotel 50” flag. Other ground highlights include 50 monks’ blessings amidst an inundation of 50,000 lotus petals.
Passport to 50 begins in Koh Samui and continues through Siem Reap, Kathmandu, Agra, Florence, Siena, Cannes, Moulinet, London, Barcelona, Ibiza, Marbella, Marrakech, Havana, Knoxville, Kona, El Nido, A Secret Island, before concluding in Manila.
The best part of the whole thing, though, is that Dream Maker has partnered with organisations like Water.org, Starlight Children’s Foundation, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and Whole Child International to utilise the ‘Passport to 50’ experience directly for children around the world. Terming it Experiential Giving, Dream Maker would facilitate the distribution of 2,500 bicycles to enable rural children in Cambodia to attend school, the provision of clean drinking water for 50,000 at-risk children in the Philippines, as well as building “fun centers” for 50,000 children battling life-threatening illnesses in the United Kingdom. “Through this trip, we have a way to act as a conduit to positively impact children’s lives,” says Patrick. “It makes no sense to work so hard to please the most discerning of clientele without making the same effort to balance the decadence with an element of kindness that delivers higher levels of fulfillment.” We couldn’t agree more with that.
