Mastering the Art of the Private Jet Set
It's like a cruise ship in the sky: the next ultra-high-end way to travel across multiple countries is in a private jet. Four Seasons is linking its best hotels via 757 on trips like January’s eight-nation “Timeless Discoveries” ($132,000 per person), which, in one L.A.-to-London itinerary, combines white-water rafting in Bali with flying in to Agra to marvel at the Taj Mahal.
Remote Lands has two eight-seat Gulfstreams hopscotching Asia with stays at Aman resorts; the March departure (remote lands.com; $58,888 per person) offers lessons from a sword fighter in Tokyo and lunch with a Cambodian princess at her dance academy. And next September, Abercrombie & Kent’s tricked-out 757 will take 50 guests from the streets of Cuba to the stone statues on Easter Island to estancias in Patagonia ($99,500 per person).
