Travel + Leisure A-List Travel Agent Melissa Ladvala

Melissa Ladvala


Thanks to her focus on the national parks, Ladvala has connections with some of the top hotels and outfitters, particularly in the West. For families, she is able to create itineraries that balance individual needs and larger group requirements. She recently planned a family trip in celebration of a 60th birthday that strung together cultural events (a private Native American hoop dancing performance), outdoor adventures (a llama-assisted trek through Colorado’s backcountry), stays at luxury hotels (Utah’s Amangiri resort), and unique dining experiences (a gourmet picnic in the mountains). Also on the menu? A vegan cake for the birthday celebration. As Ladvala’s clients are willing to splurge on fabulous accommodations, she is up to speed on new openings, including Utah’s Camp Sarika and Montana’s Green O.
