I really like hotels – so much so that I spent nine years devoted to finding the very best of them for the travel club, Mr & Mrs Smith. Propella Travel is my own way to spread the word about inspiring places to stay, in spectacular destinations all over the world.
For me, travel is about discovery, adventure, and escapism. It’s no good going where everyone else is going. You have to dig a little deeper, and get off the beaten track – to a family-owned farmhouse perhaps, a hidden bolthole in a bustling city, or a tent village under a star-studded sky.
Having personally experienced thousands of hotels, I know which ones truly stand out. I’ve also developed strong friendships with hoteliers and travel partners around the world – the kind of relationships that ensure you’ll be given an even warmer welcome, everywhere you go.
And the best bit? Propella donates a portion of everything it makes to community-focused and environmental charities in worldwide destinations.
