It's a question of choosing the right place for the occasion. That does not always mean super swanky restaurants. Sometimes more atmosphere is required, and other times less noise is valued most. Some privacy even.
Our Dining service is talking with you about what kind of eating experience you wish. Suggesting the #BestOptions then making the reservations and arrangements.
There is of course a cost to this service. We are humans making arrangements for people. There is not (yet) an app for that.
Helping you choose where to eat is a personal service and we are happy to share our own joy of great eating experiences in making the detailed arrangements for yours. No matter how simple.
This can be a romantic table for two, or an extravagant private dinner at home, in the boardroom or magical location. From hero chef, to floral artistry and after dinner entertainment. We know the best private dining rooms.
When it comes to private dining events, we work with marvelously creative and technical specialists to deliver dinners of all scale. We act like your personal event project office. Co-ordinating all of your preferred suppliers, as opposed to imposing our own in house teams or stock on your ideas.
So, when we say dining.....we do not mean just eating.
Making Great Restaurant Reservations For You
We run something like a small dining club, where we suggest and make reservations throughout the year for the same people, families or companies.
Various memberships and subscriptions are available, starting from only a few hundred pounds for the first series of reservations and initial access to this service. We bring back the joy of getting the table.
Making Beautiful Private Dining Arrangements
Our professional fees can be calculated between 10 -15 % of all expenditures depending on the scale and complexity and subject to sensible fee minimums - and maximums. Let us first discuss ideas & possibilities.
The Joy of Getting The Table Right
Part of our magic ability to get the table for you, is that we work with lovely clients. Restaurants the world over are always delighted to host lovely guests. Our recommendations are based on admiration. Most importantly the cooking, but also on plaudits for the design and feeling.
If you believe the location must always fit the occasion but are sometimes stumped for ideas, then this is where we can make life easier for you. Our #RestaurantNinjas ensure we are up to date with the latest and greatest. We suggest best options and book it all for you.
By working with you throughout the year on your dining plans, we can make sure you experience all the restaurants on the wishlist.
Sometimes You Actually Can't Get The Table
No one can ever always guarantee to get you the table. What if the restaurant was closed for a private exclusive use event? This is a growing trend, and one possible reason why you can't always get your first choice table.
Knowing this means our clients have already moved on from this on the rare occasions when the first choice table is not a possibility. Those times are when serendipity usually takes care of any possible disappointment. These times mean new discoveries are possible and likely.
Anyway, we are not big on client meltdowns on the telephone to us or at a restaurant so we like to set expectations around such moments.
On the occasions where plans are changed last minute, or when restaurants are simply unable to confirm your request, then perhaps this is when you would value our dining service most as it saves you having to make all these extra calls yourself, or need not waste your Assistant's time even doing this.
Eating Well & Booking Easily
Has anyone eaten in every single restaurant in the world? Our clients and network of restaurant ninjas enjoy the world's best; and that is how we keep up with the latest and greatest. Our lists are not compiled by a single person's food journey - they are shared recommendations of experts and insiders.
Speak with One Person.
Our service secret is that you always speak with the same person to get it all organised. The joy of that these days.
Clients call us, we discuss a few ideas. We speak with the restaurant and we respond with checked availability and confirm the chosen table then.
We can communicate this via telephone, whats app, video call or DM Instagram - whatever method you prefer - to ensure this is a fast and live process that suits you. No extra apps or passwords for booking a table with us. Just people.
When we say we run a small dining club, we mean you are part of a very well attended small community of selected and respected clients.

Private Dining Rooms & Chefs
When something more than dinner is required, trust us to organise an exquisite dining experience. Remember that in the same communication with us, we can also organise any required transport, accommodation or indeed after dinner speakers or entertainment.
If you would like to order flowers for the table or room. Or to send thank you flowers to the Host next day, again, this can all be organised via The Modern Concierge.
Flowers are a passion here (look at our #FlowersEveryDay on Instagram) so we know the best florists and creatives.
From super stylish single varietal seasonal cut flower bunches from Flowerbx to an artistic extravaganza when lunch needs a greater floral punch. As it were.
Restaurant News & Reviews on Social
Architecture and design converge with accomplished and modern authentic Italian cuisine. The enduring success of the River Cafe is testament to the long reigning purity of the concept and cooking. The wonderful wine list features the sublime Capezzana wine and olive oil estate near Florence. A fine pairing of provenance and Tuscan taste. The very best.
Some say the ultimate foodie find in Shoreditch and where the best informed are most likely to be found enjoying a low key BYOB lunch. Most particularly so on fine and sunny days. The food is modern British, with culinary lineage, and delicious. Simple genius that reminds you of the seasons. This wonderful canteen is only open during daytime.
Have you heard of this place? It's one of the reasons one can ever honestly guarantee reservations. This 7 seat sushi purist haven in Clerkenwell is perhaps the closest thing to invitation only Tokyo dining you may find in London. Seven star sushi. For the art and love of sushi.
Offering one of the great kitchen counter dining experiences in London, This always busy Soho jewel serves superb Mediterranean infused flavours of Jerusalem. The intimate, always busy, table seating at the back adds to the bustle.
Some of the best food in London right now, cooked by St John alumni Tom Harris and Jon Rotherham. Taste and texture served with realness in a smartly wood panelled pub. Design buffs request a table upstairs to enjoy the more modern Martino Gamper interiors. Delicious all round. Look out for the special CookBook Dinner series where guest chefs are invited to create a tasting menu, with dishes chosen from their favourite cookbook.
For a peculiar reason we specialise in private islands. Trust our experience to organise a wonderful romantic escape for the two of you (or even a Robinson Crusoe for one), for family holidays during celebration weeks or exclusive use of entire islands for larger private gatherings.
We are highly experienced in bringing these ideas creatively to life, including coordinating guests travel arrangements, by either commercial or private jet.
Speak to the owner on +442070601060 to explore the ideas and possibilities.
There are private islands all over the world, in every clime and continent. We have our own private island clubhouse in the Bahamas where our members enjoy exclusive access and benefits.
Islands can be rented entirely for your exclusive use for corporate or social gatherings. Some private islands make individual properties available during 'celebration' weeks for those seeking the experience but don't need an island to themselves. For solo, couples or smaller group escapes.
Simply call us in London on 0207 060 1060 and we can help find your slice of paradise.
You can also talk to us about creating business content for meetings and incentive trips. We can deliver a most effective programme in wonderful environments to create change and connection.
This 97 acre barrier island sits between Andros (the largest, least developed landmass in the Bahamas) and the world's third largest reef. Perhaps the quietest spot in the Caribbean. These pure shores are silently famous world over for the kingly sport of bonefishing which the family offer as experts and ecologists with a strong sustainability message. This reef island is home to the Hew family and they work wonders to continually reduce the carbon footprint of the island - it's their forever home.
The environmentally minded will love it, not least to explore the adjoining national park island of Andros, it's enormous expanse of forest and mangroves are to behold from the air, the pink flamingos, the manta rays, the manatees and darting bonefish. The mysterious blue holes inland, for cliff jumping thrills, and eco adventures.
The island is deserted it seems. Beautiful, barefoot chic individual beach front villas are available throughout the open year (Oct - Aug, dates vary). Beach front plots are available for sale along the 3km stretch for those who really have the private island dream. The Hews design & build the dream with you. The resort also manage rentals of the substantial privately owned beach front properties as well as the charming array of individual suites, cottages and villa within the resort estate.
CN Traveller described this international mix of island guests and residents all hosted by the Hew family as being 'like Mustique 50 years ago'.
These days the island itself is run by the new generation, son David and his husband, Mr. Michael King, the luxury hospitality and tech entreprenuer. This makes for a modern island experience. The Hew-Kings host a monthly sunday social when others gather from neighbouring islands by helicopter, boats and seaplanes. Or jet in from Miami, New York or Toronto.
Guest Chefs, Guest Wine and Guest Guests make for a very jolly day. Such monthly Sunday's are preceded by the weekly Saturday, all island get together for sunset cocktails and then a dramatic tiki lit single table in the sand, twinkling with candles and bright shining starts in the unpolluted sky above. That's a private island weekend.
You Want It ALL
When it comes to private islands, the dream of course is taking the entire island, if not forever then certainly for a vacation or special gathering. This is what we enjoy doing. Whether you want the whole place for just to the two of you, or simply a little bolthole on the beach for two, we can do that for you.
5 Day Trips & 3 Day Trips to Kamalame Cay
If you have something special to celebrate, then a 3 or 5 day stay on this island could be sufficient to escape and replenish.
See Kamalame Cay, our clubhouse for members, in its full glory within its own home page square. Getting to the island can include arrival by helicopter or seaplane. Literally walk up the beach to your house. First step is to get to Nassau or Miami first!
We can get you there by commercial flight or private jet. Call The Modern Concierge in London on 0207 060 1060.
Necker was probably the first private island that most ever heard about, perhaps except Tracy Island for the Generation Thunderbirds. We can organise your Necker experience from all island rental to securing individual rooms and pavillions during the Celebration Weeks. Imagine a week for two costing from around US$30,000. In a single call to us we can make the island booking, securing the best available room, and also make the international and internal flight and transfer arrangements. This way, your arrival is anticipated because we have planned ahead with the island managers.
We can book private jet travel or commercial flights using the super secret 'Friends of Richard' service. Guess which airline?

This is a perfect taste of island life in Scotland. Rooms are available all year round. This near 300 acre lake (loch) island is on Loch Creran, a designated special area for marine conservation.
This pristine environment is home to a wonderlife array of wildliife, and also, outdoor country pursuits including a course on the ilsnad itself. Eriska has a modern spa for restorative treatments.
It's a romantic island that offers couples the chance to disonnect, if only for 48 hours. You can get there via jet and helicopter, or train, or car. The island is accessed only via a boarded road bridge - which makes a wonderful sound to arrive and depart to.
This family run and much loved hotel offers every modern luxury, the rooms are glorious, and the setting is magical. Perhaps its the service and warmth from the Buchanan family and their team is what makes a stay here unforgettable. Book yourself or we can do it all for you having stayed there before.
Peace, tranquility and as much or as little to do as you wish. The Scottish private island life. Weather can be changeable but the experience is unforgettable.
When you want the private island dream, but you don't want a whole island. Cocoa Island is a spit of sand in the South Atoll in the Maldives. Perfect for crusoes, couples and familes seeking a haven in paradise. Take you pick from the iconic dhoni boat shaped over water suites. Take a dhoni loft suite for the extra space or splash out on the dream like water villas of varying expanse. The underwater world there is your very own you will Nemo experience. Giant napoleon fish, gentle giant whale sharks and magical manta rays. Delicious food, zen atmosphere and the Shambala Spa complete the experience.
You may not be imagining a romantic dinner like the candles being lit in the above picture of Cocoa Island. Whatever you are dreaming, or even if you just need some inspiration, we can help you organise just the right moment for you. Here are anywhere else.

That majority of frequent private jet flyers will tell you it is about having total control of time. Private flying opens up many more airport choices to get you closer to where you want to be. And of course you get to choose at precisely which time. That is the necessity of it.
We won't be told there is an app for private jet bookings. The market means people need to speak to people to get the right jet at the right deal. Under the right contractual terms and guarantees.
This is why we work almost exclusively with Air Partner plc.
Each week we publish a list of private jet empty legs in association with Air Partner . In Summer 2014 we launched the first dedicated empty leg service between London and Ibiza.
The innovation continued in 2015 when we launched the first The Modern Concierge JetCard with Air Partner. This introduced fixed price jets for the first time ever, on the Ibiza to London route.

Our service of course includes transfers to your hotel or apartment and indeed, organising your time there, making reservations, curated experiences, or simply putting a personalised list of suggestions for you, based on your vision for your time there.
Experiences include the cultural highlights of this great Renaissance city. Whether your interests are in art, the arts, architecture, design, culture or cuisine.
We organise privileged access cultural masterpience private tours of the great museums and private collections, including the Vasariano Ponte Vecchio Corridor - the famous Medici route between the great Uffizi and Pitti Palace.
Our team includes Art Historians to bring the Renaissance to life through their expert narrative as they discreetly escort you through the Uffizi, viewing private family collections as well as the public displays. Then, the heart stopping moment of the doors to the Vasariano Corridorio being opened specially for you.
You will never forget the experience, of walking in the Medici Grand Duke footsteps, our Art Historians talking and walking you through the allegorical collection of these rarely seen paintings which line the walls of this historic space. Then, that view, above the Ponte Vechhio. Towards the Pitti Palace side of the corridor, the wonderful self portraitof self ofartists through the ages including an honoured selection of modern day artists. Pausing at the unexpected view into the Medici chapel before emerging at the Buontalenti Grotto, at the foot of Boboli and the Pitti Palace. It is an awe inspiring experience of Renaissance Firenze.
If you have ever dreamed of learning to cook authentic Tuscan cuisine, then we can organise wonderful afternoons in private Italian kitchens; or longer, for formalised cooking courses.
For those seeking an immersive experience of learning Italian or Italian Cultural Courses, then our private apartments proivde the perfect base for that, and we are able to curate the courses to specifically match your needs.
And that's just what we can do in Florence. Don't even get us started on Tuscany!
This great enigma was solved in Renaissance Florence in the building of the Duomo. Make the newly re-imagined Museo dell'Opera del Duomo your first stop in Florence. Spend a few hours immersed in the history of this architectural masterpiece, symbolic of the cultural greatness of the city of flowers.
Stand in front of the Gates of Paradise, be sure to watch the short film in the museum about the architecture and construction of the duomo itself, and the great history of Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore. It should be a pilgrimmage for every architect and designer.
Enjoy privileged access to the Medici corridor above the Ponte Vecchio. Our Art Historians walk and talk you through the allegorical collection of rarely seen historic paintings and important self portraits.
The Southern walls of the corridor are surprisingly lined with self portraits of important contemporary artists. It's a wonderful contrast to the ancient self portraits and together display the spectrum of art, as each artist, in different times, but for the same walls, depicts their image of themselves or of the self.
This once in a lifetime experience is something that should be enjoyed again over time, because there is so much to see in these kilometres of the history of art, Florence and the world.
There are charming portraits of sisters eligible for marriage, the first single selfies, which were painted then taken around Europe on grand tours and shown to potential suitors.
This is the view from the centre windows of the Vasari Corridor. Above the Ponte Vecchio. Few get to experience this magical view of Florence, from above the Ponte Vecchio. Nice place of history to ask someone to spend forever with you?
Private Jet Charters to Florence are available by calling The Modern Concierge in London on 0207 060 1060.
Luckily there are some fine jewelers on the Ponte Vecchio, should something sparkling be required.
After lunch, the Masterpiece tour includes access to the rarely seen Contini Bonacossi private family collection at the Uffizi, and then the Vasari Corridor Tour.
The day can be finished off with a 45 minute drive out through charming villages and towns of Capezzana, home of the Contini Bonacossi family, and their world regarded wine and olive oil estate.
You'll find it on the list at The River Cafe in London. A family member will escort your through the cellar and around the grounds of the house. This is followed by aperitivos on the terrace, being in the view above.
Vinsantaia is the garden kitchen restaurant, run by the new generation family, offering modern inspired Italian cooking. Soaked in their Tuscan tradition, and presented with a millennial touch. Dinner at La Vinsantaia di Capezzana is a moment in mindful eating - because you will be absorbed by the tastes and the good energy atmosphere, where they used to make the estate vin santo.
Capezzana serves a modern model of sustainability: historic houses on the estate provide agro tourismo rustic luxury experiences. Such as a 500 year old Medici Hunting Lodge, but with modern pool.
Tours of the wine and olive oil making processes, bring a greater level of understanding and appreciation, while the new generation family members are reimagining old spaces and purposes to create cultural eating experiences.
Our members stayed there in Summer 2015, resident in the New York and Bahamas. They were completely absorbed by the Medici history of Villa Trefiano, part of the Capezzana family, imagining life their 500 years ago, and this glimpse they had into then.
We keep our own private apartments in Florence. It's a living there like a local experience. We can have delicious meals cooked for you everyday if required, or point you in the right directions if you want the independent Fiorintino experience.
Pampaloni is a great silversmith Florence, 10 minutes outside the centre. This historic family firm have collaborated creatively in silver skills with a list of the world's best designers. In Fabbrica is the factory canteen turned highly adorned restaurant by night.
The menus are a creative exploration in flavour and texture. The food is about juxtaposition as much as being Italian. The welcome through their private collection, featuring works of their labours and collaborations, enjoyed more with an chilled silver goblet of wine, sets the tone this wonderful eating experience. It's something else.
We propose lunch and dinner while you are in town. This is the perfect idea of the Florentine dining room. It is thankfully busy with Florentine locals enjoying a smart meal together. if you visit for lunch and dinner you will have the experience of being welcomed back, which what eating here is really all about. Florence is very pet friendly and dogs are welcomed here. It's so civilised.
Our love affair with Italy, continues beyond Florence to the amazing hillside and coastal villas. Choose from the life-in-perspective austere luxury experience of staying in historic 500 year old country house or Medici Hunting Lodges. Or keep it luxe and up to date by taking a fully modernised pristine luxury villa or castle instead.
We can also show you beautifully formed tiny boltholes for two.
About 25 minutes outside Florence, Vigliano is the romantic story of a 500 year old Tuscan country house, being slowly restored and reimagined as place to call home for gatherings of up to 14 guests in the long summer weeks in Tuscany.
Villa Trefiano is 23 kilometres from Florence. This Medici Hunting Lodge dates back to 1570. Like Vigliano, it's an historic luxury experience. It is part of the Capezzana estate, producers of wine and olive oil. (As featured in the River Cafe Wine List).
We organise cellar tours of the famous Estate, followed by lunch or dinner in their La Vinsantia garden kitchen, presenting new generation Italian Cooking. Arranging home deliveries of wine and olive oil to bring the taste back with you, should you wish.
ELSEWHERE IN TUSCANY
Of course there are many more villas and castles to choose from around Tuscany and we can help find your own idea of perfection.
For Tuscan stays we can arrange magical teams to take care of the cooking and shopping and villa services. Cars to drive, and places to see.
(You can arrange things like this with us, while you are also speaking to us about organising a work trip to Berlin or LA).
If you have always wanted to learn the Italian language in an immersive way, then we can arrange daily language lessons, cooking lessons and Introduced Italian film screenings during your time in Tuscany.
Cultural trips to Florence with special museum access and expert private tours can be organised. Architects can be accompanied by Architects on tours of city landmarks and masterpieces. Artisans can be shown Ancient Artisan Workshops and Lessons. Designers can have tours created to taste. Collectors can be shown private collections.
The Tank Pool View
Tuscany has so many heart breaking views. From marble mountains, to deep ravines, to the undulating hills that roll endlessly. There are beautiful gardens to explore, revealing the storied history of these hills and mountains.
Villa Pepi (Vigliano) sits above Rignano sul'Arno, about 25 minutes from Florence. Villa Pepi dates back to the sixteen century and was built as the country summer house of the aristocratic Pepi-Feri family - the great Traders who introduced pepper to Italy.
The ancient water tank makes a wonderful fresh spring water pool for swimming, with a deck for cooling out on the hottest days. At the end of the summer, the great walnut tree bears fruit and eating fresh wet walnuts from the tree as your skin is drying in the sun is a mindful treat.
Vigliano is a peaceful retreat for those seeing quiet time, or gentle celebrations of family and life's moments. The house can accommodate 14 treasured guests and of course welcomes well behaved dogs.
A week in Vigliano together is a really wonderful way to gently celebrate with family or friends. Having someone wonderful taking care of the cooking and shopping, balances the home from home without having to do it all yourself.
This will be our third summer of services. We work year round with lovely people based there to serve you a thoughtful take on Eivissa.
We only ever have a handful of clients on island at the same time. This is how we offer our elevated Ibiza experience and high levels of personal care and attention, throughout the year.
Of a certain age ourselves, we perhaps do not best cater for current party animals happy to pay the cost of rock star damages and party all night, every night. (Lucky things).
We present some very special villas that are available because we are able to vouch for our clients. We find beautiful places on the island.
Really we are here for those who might not yet have forgotten how to party, but instead prefer to enjoy the island's magical energies at a more gently rocking pace these days.
Appreciating amazing moments, delicious food, beautiful beaches, deep blue swims, Formentera boat days. And perhaps a bit of a party night or two, why not?
That Ibiza. With in villa wellness therapists, spa, private chef, driver.
Lunches out, dinners or party nights, beach days, private cooking for terrace lunches and garden dinners at the villa. It's a lovely way to spend a week.
Every Ibiza experience is a unique selection for you. We suggest different days of the week and different hours of the day for the same place for different clients. It's all about the experience you want.
We suggest the Ibiza edit most suited to you.
La Paloma, ECC Beach Club, PK2, Cala Bassa Beach Club, Rumours, Pikes, Ibiza Angels, Fish Shack, Lio, Heart, Ibiza Gran, The Giri, DC-10. Las Dalias. Benirras forever. Sunset Ashram. La Oliva. WildBeets. Beso Beach. Radici. Raco Ibiza. And so many more people, places and things.
This year also, Coricancha for sunset sushi on the Salinas salt flats. Sunny days at sea on the Vanquish 43 to Formentera or around the coast for a different sea day. And always Es Vedra Full Moons on the water.
Recommended restaurant bookings & VIP Tables and reserved areas when you wish to go out. Or hardly ever leave the villa. We arrange it all as you want.
Stay in a hand picked house. Our exclusive selection of villas across the island each offer their unique take on spending time there. Its's all about the Ibiza you seek. Our #VillaFinder service locates the sea, sunset or campo landscape view you are dreaming of.
From re-imagined ancient fincas (fit for the Prime Minister) to the temples of modern architecture synonymous with Ibiza villa stays. Perhaps Tagomago priavte island, or even a villa set on it's own private mountain.
Simply speak with us to have it all and with our #VillaFinder service, beautifully done for you.
Ibiza is seeped in ancient history and modern times there are equally mystical. From the magnetic wonders of Es Vedra, to the good energy of the wellness practitioners there, we create magical vacation experiences, all coordinated from our Shoreditch headquarters.
We also love creating expert wellness programmes around your stay and schedule. Your own bespoke retreat when your Ibiza time is more about wellness than a vacation.
We are excited about the forthcoming launch of Ibiza private jet summer services. The Modern Concierge #IBZ16JetCard, powered by Air Partner, which launches from the last week in May.
This one-of-its kind fixed price JetCard, offers private flyers guaranteed aircraft price and availability even at the peak heights of the summer season. (Ibiza becomes one of the busiest private jet airports in the world during the month of August).
On our Instagram we share latest villa availability and private jet empty legs throughout the season.
Our #VillaFinder experience includes our concierge services on call for the duration of your time with us on the island.
The beauty is that you can organise everything via a single trusted point of contact, which leaves you to concentrate on enjoying Ibiza.
Clients also ask us to help them with property searches on the island, or plots of land for sale.
Whether it's private practice with the best yogi on the island, or a fast boat for a Formentera beach lunch, it's all a call away.
Looking after only ever have a handful of clients on island at the same time, is the secret to our elevated Ibiza experience, a rare level of personal care and attention..
This ensures we maintain quality. The best drivers, restaurant and beach availability, and also accessing the smaller happenings we hear of.
Our Ibiza points towards the quieter places, as well of course as the Ibiza classics. In villa we provide a full range of services, with a fine menu of options. Family cooks, private chefs, pop-up parties or impromptu bbqs.
We offer our #AllWaysIbiza #VillaFinder clients #IBZ16JetCard access which uniquely offers fixed rate private jets between Ibiza and London.
The villas we show are not available as a collection anywhere else, because we work with a unique network of villa ninjas on the island to give you an authentic Ibiza villa experience. From ancient fincas to modern architecture temples.
We take care of the experience from start to finish, from booking boats to Formentera lunches, to diving or island cycling while you are there.
The point is, you just have to speak to one person to get it all done the way you want it.
Such a laid back place to enjoy the dazzling waters of Formentera, with a keep it simple vibe.
The Modern Concierge has roots firmly in Scotland. We are proud to present a portfolio of the very best Scotland has to offer. From the most romantic idea of a Scottish Castle, for a wedding, clan gathering or corporate event. Sumptious country or coastal houses and the finest hotels of this beautiful country.
You can walk from the plane to the golf course, take a motor yacht or sail up the West Coast (just like Mr. Abramovich did in the Summer 2015) or experience the alchemy of making whisky with the ultimate malt experiences.
The great outdoors of Scotland offer the great pursuits of the sporting minded. The fun of archery and clays in the garden. Over head casting lessons, and private fishing beats can all be arranged.
The famed NorthCoast500 offers breathtaking scenery for those seeking the spontaneity of classic car self driven or chaffeured trip around this drivers road.

In a single call to us, these arrangements can be made, even at short notice. We can take care of the transport (planes, trains, automobiles), accommodation and experiences.
Sea planes are great way to arrive at lochside hotels and houses. Also a wonderful last moment surprise to start or finish an escape in style.

This luxury bolthole has extensive gardens. Foraged herbs have been on the menus here since the late nineties. The jewel coloured interiors sum up the indulgence of a break away here.
Perfect for two lovers to catch up with each other.
For inland hotels and further away places, this can be a sensible as well as thrilling way to arrive and depart.

Oh this wonderful island! Forget everything you know about Jamaica except Bob Marley and think again. Jamaica is another love of The Modern Concierge and our knowledge is that of those who have lived there.
Jamaica is for the adventure minded and we can show you the Jamaica that drew the early jet set, and the place that has barely changed since they were there. The magical Port Antonio.
Land in Kingston, take the helicopter to Strawberry Hill and catch your breath high in the Blue Mountains, above the twinkling lights of Kingston, as the city beats below.
Sleep at Strawberry Hill in the luxe lap of Jamaican cool. Or go native from the get go, and sleep nearby at the eco minded magical Mount Edge Guest House. The world famous rambling shacks and award winning farm to plate foodie experience of EITS Cafe.
When you wake the next morning, you will feel a different kind of alive and the real Jamaican adventure can begin. A 3 hour 4x4 safari through the Blue Mountains, stopping off for impromptu waterfall swims and roadside street eats, lunch along the way.
Along the stunning north coast highway, surely one of the great drives of the world, towards the gentle parish of Portland and the enduring allure of old school Jamaica, to Port Antonio.
Our home there is Kanopi House. Imagine a 5 bedroom villa, of beautifully crafted, hand turned wood as a series of eco luxe treehouses gently perched on stilts, within a 6 acre private rain forest paradise, with shores on the mythical Blue Lagoon.
The house can accomodate uo to 10 people, with 5 bedrooms across 4 spacious treehouses, and The Living room, the gathering place.
A water pavilion provides plunge access to the water. The Blue Lagoon (where they filmed Cocktail) is fed by 14 fresh water springs as well as the warm waters of the Caribbean sea. The experience of diving in and feeling the warm then cool layers of fresh and saltwater thermoclimes is part of the magic of being there.
Jumping off the enormous Almond Tree into the deep waters, quietly paddle boarding around the lagoon, just taking it all in. Or exploring the reef and Monkey Island by kayak, snorkelling and resurfacing.
Take the boat to the beaches around the headlands, or git the road and explore farther.
Either a couple or family taking just one treehouse, or a larger group taking the entire property for exclusive use.
We organise unforgettable day trips, putting as much or as little into each day as you like. It's a special kind of magic, to just spend the day on The Living Room day beds, gazing over the tree tops to the sea beyond, and being immersed in the sounds of the forests, roots reggae gently playing on the Bose.
Ah, Jamaica. Soon come!
3,000ft High in the Blue Mountains above Kingston. Make a night stop at Chris Blackwell's historic Blue Mountain retreat.

Thrilling way to arrive in Port Antonio from Kingston, with a car waiting ready to take you to a jungle paradise....
Feel the hot Caribbean sea and cool freshwater thermo-climes against your skin as you dive in to the Blue Lagoon, from the private shores of Kanopi House.
Few places on earth stir the soul as the Amalfi Coast. The Modern Concierge Amalfi experience spans the spectrum of independent private travel. From low maintenance, classic Amalfi drive-yourself road trips to short or extended stays in the greatest luxury hotels, islands and private villas.
Secret Praiano view...
While many clamour for Positano, we suggest Praiano - only a short drive along the coast. The view here is across the coastline back to Positano. Our suggestions start with private apartments in Praiano, and we believe, the best view there is mixed with the independence of self catering.
Looking back at Positano, over the Li Galli islands, towards Capri in the distance. Or if it absolutely has to be a luxury hotel experience, then of course we know the very best and can plan a wonderful route for you with well informed stops and stays along the coast.
Have Caruso sandals handmade for you in Ravello, while you explore the views and gardens of historic Villa Cimbreo. Meet the Artist Paulo Sandulli in his torre studio. Take the boat to Capri, stay there, or come back in a day., stopping to take the waters around Nureyev's Li Galli.
Be driven, drive yourself along the classic coastal route or be radical even and take the reliable buses for days away from base camp.
Land in Naples by BA, Easyjet or take a private jet. We take care of you from the moment you land until you depart again.
The Amalfi Coast should be experienced at least once in your life.
Land in Naples, and wind your way along the Amalfi Coast. Hit the hot spots, or expertly navigate a less travelled road. Above all, be sure to include some time on the water and head to Capri, if only for the day.
Almost everything good on the Amalfi Coast involves lots of stairs, but the legwork is always well rewarded. For those seeking a more independent road trip, this is the view from our secret self catering apartments. Two well appointed rooms - with in room soaking tubs - open out to this Amalfi view towards Li Galli and Capri beyond.
