With ‘revenge travel’ trending and affluent travelers looking for vacations that prioritize experiences over possessions next year – one just-launched itinerary neatly ticks both boxes. Premier luxury Asia travel designer Remote Lands has partnered with Aman on a 12-night private jet expedition offering unparalleled access to beach oases in the Dominican Republic and Turks & Caicos, plus impossible-to-get reservations at Amangani and Amangiri in the height of ski season.
“We are seeing an enormous pent-up travel demand for 2022, and travelers are seeking true, bucket-list experiences to make up for lost time,” said Catherine Heald, CEO and Co-Founder of Remote Lands. “While our focus has always been Asia, we know many travelers are looking to start 2022 closer to home, so we thought it was important to expand on our long-term partnership with Aman to introduce an Americas trip.”

Turks & Caicos to Canyon Point, Utah
From palm-fringed beaches to the drama of the desert, the third destination on the jet journey takes guests to Amangiri in Canyon Point, Utah, a 600-acre oasis that blends seamlessly into the wilderness of the red rock country.

Cocktails and dinner kicks-off the stay, where travelers will hear tales from a Navajo storyteller and learn traditional Hopi dancing.

Utah to Wyoming
The final leg of the journey takes travelers north to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a great American wilderness flanked by the Teton and Gros Ventre mountain ranges.
