They hope to be a trusted guide as you seek out tomorrow’s journeys and invite you to join them in their continuing pursuit of discovery.
Central to JG Black Book’s mission of leading the world to inspired destinations is the belief that travel leads to a more connected, tolerant and peaceful world. By working to harness the power of the tourism industry and travelers themselves, we can ensure that the natural and cultural wonders that make these destinations so special are sustained for future generations to experience and learn from.
Many members of the JG Black Book Collection have donated wonderful trips for this year’s auction. These members include:
The Chedi in Andermatt, Switzerland
This new hotel is a modern Swiss chalet with an Asian twist. Warm woods, natural stone, clean lines and a touch of European opulence make The Chedi Andermatt a unique Alpine retreat. Ideal for winter and summer getaways, the hotel features 123 rooms and suites, an indoor and outdoor pool, spa and sumptuous dining venues. The property is conceived and operated by GHM Hotels, a worldwide leader in creating distinctive hotel concepts inspired by the landscape, architecture and culture of a destination.
Sonnenalp Hotel, Vail Colorado
Since opening in 1979, this charming, family-run gem has been recognized for beautiful accommodations, fine food and first-class service. Guests can unwind in the Bavarian-inspired rooms and suites while admiring striking views of Gore Creek and Vail Village. The property offers a selection of seasonal activities including a private 18-hole golf course, easy ski access and a rejuvenating spa facility with an indoor and outdoor pool. The Sonnenalp is also committed to sustainable practices and philanthropic efforts benefitting the local community.
Martinhal Family Hotels & Resorts
Founded in 2005 by Chitra and Roman Stern, Martinhal Family Hotels & Resorts was conceived with families in mind and aims to offer a luxury holiday experience with high class family-friendly facilities in some of the most prestigious areas of Portugal. Four properties make up the collection: Martinhal Sagres Beach Family Resort and Martinhal Quinta Family Golf Resort in the beautiful Algarve, and the Martinhal Cascais Family Hotel and soon-to-be-opened Martinhal Chiado Family Suites in historic Lisbon.
