Stop everything - Four Seasons’ private jet is back
If you’ve got $100,000 to spend on a holiday then take your pick from these five incredible trips.Neil Churchill May 4, 2016
Four Seasons hotels have always been the pinnacle of luxury resorts. Their three properties in the UAE are testament to that.
But almost two years ago the Canadian hotel chain did something extra special. It unveiled its own private jet, and with it, some incredible bespoke travel experiences to whisk its guests to in style.
We’re talking nine cities in just over three weeks, travelling by the jet, and staying exclusively in Four Seasons hotels. Travel really doesn’t get more luxurious than that.
If you missed out last time (let’s be honest, we all did) the Canadian hotel chain has just announced five new routes over this year and the next, taking in some of the world’s greatest cities and most sought-after destinations.
If you were planning to spend over $100,000 on your next holiday, then take your pick from below.
Culinary Discoveries, May 27 – June 14, 2017
Seoul – Tokyo – Hong Kong – Chiang Mai – Mumbai – Florence – Lisbon – Copenhagen – Paris
One for serious foodies, the three-week long journey across Asia and Europe will give those on board access to private kitchens of renown chefs and some of the world’s most acclaimed restaurants.
Highlights include: joining chef Namae Shinobu in foraging outside of Tokyo, before dining that evening at his Michelin star restaurant L'Effervescence; cooking classes with Michelin-starred chefs in Hong Kong; dinner in Florence with legendary chef Fulvio Pierangelini; and picking your own ingredients with the Noma team in Copenhagen, before dining at the acclaimed restaurant.
If food and travel are what you live for, then this will probably be the greatest 19 days of your life. And it will cost you $135,000 all in. Remember, that includes the private jet travel and rooms at Four Seasons hotels. So, you know, it's probably worth it.

Global Getaway, March 16 – April 8, 2017
Singapore – Koh Samui – Dubai – Budapest – Nice – Lisbon – Nevis – Bogota – Miami
A mix of modern and old, the Global Getaway route hits nine countries in 24 days. From Singapore’s Lion City to Dubai’s deserts, to the French Riviera and Colombia’s Cerro de Monserrate mountain. If you’ve not travelled much in life, this is a good way to fill up those passport pages. Cost: $135,000.
International Intrigue, September 3 – 26, 2017
Seattle – Kyoto – Beijing – Maldives – Serengeti – Budapest – St. Petersburg – Marrakech – Boston
An updated version of one of the original private jet trips from two years ago. The eight countries in 24 days includes a craft brewery tour in Seattle, a Shaolin performance on the Great Wall of China, swimming with turtles in the Maldives and a hot air balloon safari in the Serengeti. Cost: $135,000.
Extraordinary Adventures, September 17 – October 11, 2016
Austin – Costa Rica – Lanai – Sydney – Langkawi – Mauritius – Serengeti – Marrakech – Lisbon
This one is a trip of shocking differences. Starting in the heart of Texas, a few days later you’ll be swimming with dolphins in Lanai, before you circle Sydney in a sea plane, ride horseback in Mauritius, and tour the souks of Marrakech. Cost: $106,000.
Cultural Escape, November 4 – 22, 2016
London – Moscow – Dubai – Seychelles – Serengeti – Florence – London
We’d say that every trip so far will include its fair amount of culture, but apparently this one is the certified ‘cultural escape’. It’s also just a bit shorter than the others, with 19 days to visit six countries. Cost: $106,000.
