Traveling with friends is fun. But traveling with your 50 friends on a 20-day trip around the world is even more fun. Experiential travel boutique DreamMaker has designed a trip around the globe aboard a privately outfitted Boeing 767 for its ultra-high net worth clientele. Passport to 50 is styled as a milestone celebration for the billionaire client and up to 50 friends and family flying in tandem on a second Boeing Business Jet.
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 surprising time ratio of 88% on the ground and 12% in the air. 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.
Thinking far beyond flat beds, chef-inspired cuisine, and amenity kits, DreamMaker has 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. 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.
World of Diamonds Group is a consortium of diamond mining, polishing and distribution companies, and also has interests jewelry manufacturing. World of Diamonds Group Director Karan Tilani said that “The swizzle stick is a Picasso of diamonds & beyond – a masterpiece that stirs conversation.”
Partner World of Diamonds Group was commissioned to create the trip’s most luxurious amenity: a set of 18-karat gold swizzle sticks set with white and blue diamonds worth a total of $1 million. 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.
In line with the 50 signature DreamMaker experiences, London’s Hotel 41 will be the first in the world to completely rebrand its identity to “Hotel 50” and accommodate the unique story with its famously personalized service. The hotel will chip out its marble tile in the foyer, commission newly monogrammed bed and bath linens, and a raise a “Hotel 50” flag. Other ground highlights include 50 monks’ blessings amidst an inundation of 50,000 lotus petals.
The Passport to 50 experience directly benefits children around the world through Experiential Giving, such as 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.
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, and A Secret Island, before concluding in Manila. The trip is currently being offered at $13,875,000 for a party of up to 50 people in August of 2017.
