Here at Blue Sky Luxury Travels, we select only the best in villas, resorts, yacht charters and private islands for our discriminating guests. Our local team ensures quality and unique experiences as well as planning tailored and unique itineraries. When you’re making the decision of which villa is right for your island vacation, here are 10 important questions to consider:
1. What is the location of the villa?
Is it located near a city or town or is it in a more rural area? Are there any shops nearby? Banks? Ferry boats? Asking the right questions about the area can help you get a better idea of the location you’re staying at and how accessible it will be to pick up any last-minute supplies or gifts.
2. What services and activities are offered?
As an all-inclusive operation, Blue Sky offers a variety of services at most of our villas including private chefs, personal trainers, childcare professionals, massage therapists, tour guides, private transportation services, and more. We are able to tailor a dream vacation that is unique to your interests and desires. Experiences can include day charters for powerboats, catamarans, and sailboats, private jets, event planning, helicopter charters, excursions (guided hikes, kayak, and paddle boards), private local land and sea tours, and more. If you’re looking for a specific diving experience or for snorkeling near to where you’re staying, you might want to choose a close-by villa for your stay, and we will be glad to advise you on the best selections.
3. Can I send a wish list of important things we are looking for in a villa?
YES! The more specific the better! You can let us know the location you prefer, your range in budget, if full AC is important or if AC in the bedrooms only is ok, beachfront or a high up view, etc. Asking the right questions can help narrow down your options. From there Blue Sky will go to work on locating your perfect villa!
If you’re opting for a private chef or villa provisioning, you’ll be able to make dining plans for your entire villa vacation in advance. For provisioning prior to your luxury villa vacation, you’ll fill out a shopping list so our team can do the shopping for you and have your kitchen stocked before you arrive. For private chef services, you’ll fill out a questionnaire to provide the chef with your food and beverage preferences along with any dietary or medical conditions in your party. Then the villa chef will work their magic to prepare gourmet meals for you to enjoy!
Blue Sky is a company with over 15 years of experience planning events from small intimate parties to large scale corporate gatherings and even worldwide tours. From arranging talent to planning production logistics, we handle all aspects of private events and believe anything is possible. Our team can make your party or wedding dreams come true during your vacation, but you’ll want to make sure that the villa you select allows this type of function.
6. Do the luxury villas allow pets?
We are pet lovers! Let us know if you have any pets joining you during your stay. We are at your service to create the ultimate luxury vacation for you and all your loved ones. Our concierge team will help you choose a villa that allows pets if you choose to bring your furry friends along on vacation.
Great question! Cancellation policies vary by property, but we are always here to answer any of your questions. Please let us know which property you are interested in and we can discuss the cancellation policy with you before you plan your luxury vacation.
8. Is the area safe?
We personally visit all of our luxury villas to make sure we know what’s out there. Many villas have extensive security systems and are in guard-gated communities. When security is paramount, our concierge team will help you select the appropriate villa for your needs.
Your villa will come fully equipped with everything needed for luxury, safety, and meal preparations. Of course, you’ll want to remember the basics like passport, prescription medication, reef safe sunblock (we can recommend some great ones as well as chemical free if you like), lip balm, and insect repellent. As far as clothing, definitely pack several cute swimsuits, comfortable walking shoes, and sunglasses!
10. How do I get there?
Some villas are more remote than others. If time is short, you may want to select a villa that has quick access to a local airport so you can start your vacation quickly. For longer vacations, it might not be such a big deal to take a ferry and a boat to get to your vacation home. Either way, our team will make sure you have all the information you need on the easiest and most convenient way to arrive at your vacation destination.
Here at Blue Sky Luxury Travels, our clients are our top priority and we strive for excellent service. You will have access to our luxury concierge, Shanna Dickerson, and her on-site staff to assist during your entire luxury villa stay. We hope these questions, along with our personalized assistance, will help you choose the perfect vacation villa for your next luxurious escape.
