WELCOME

Dear Reader, hether it’s an exclusive beachfront property in the Cayman Islands, a traditional finca in Mallorca or a classic chalet in Gstaad – with the purchase of a second home at their favorite vacation spot, buyers often turn a lifelong dream into reality. Roughly 30 years ago, I, too, fulfilled one of my dreams when I purchased a 500-year-old finca – then a ruin – in Mallorca. Over the years we restored it carefully and cultivated the land. Today, together with my family, I retreat to this refuge as often as I am able to. We spend a lot of time there together, helping with the grape harvest, the production of our olive oil and the caretaking of our dogs, donkeys and polo ponies. Over time, I have come to realize just how much positive energy for my entrepreneurial activities I am able to draw from physical work. Over the last 40 years, we at Engel & Völkers have made a name for ourselves around the globe as specialists in luxury real estate in the most desirable locations. Particularly when it comes to exclusive second homes, we have built up a comprehensive expertise that has been shaped by our great passion. After all, there is hardly a pairing that resonates the same way as the coming together of vacations and real estate. In the most popular markets around the world, demand considerably outstrips supply. These markets boast exclusive locations, high levels of security and excellent infrastructure. As a result, property prices in top locations are high. In 2017, chalets on ­Suvretta Hill in the high-end ski resort of St. Moritz fetched prices of up to € 60 million. In the same year, prices for spacious properties in Mallorca went up to around the € 40 million mark. The U.S. also stimulates interest with numerous attractive locations for second homes, like the Florida Keys, the Hamptons or Aspen and Vail in the Rocky Mountains. Caribbean islands, too, are much sought after by international buyers. Only last year, we opened an E&V shop for residential real estate in the Bahamas. In 2017, prices for top beachfront properties with private beach access on the islands cost upwards of around € 20 million. Do you dream of a second home in an exclusive vacation destination? This new edition of GG showcases numerous breathtaking properties and whisks you away to places that feel like they were made for an unforgettable break from the everyday. Let us inspire you – and maybe you, too, will find the property of your dreams very soon!

WELCOME

Why experiences make us happier … Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer. You’ve probably heard those wise words before. They could have come from psychology professor Thomas Gilovich, who ­scientifically proved in a 20-year study at C ­ ornell that the joy we gain from material possessions doesn’t last as long as the satisfaction we get from investing in a special experience. This trend can be observed most clearly among ­Millennials (people who were born ­roughly between 1980 and 2000), and it’s one of the reasons we have dedicated this ­issue entirely to travel. In addition to sharing our personal selection of exceptional destinations, we feature some of the extraordinary personalities who have devoted their lives to creating ­unforgettable experiences and memories for their clients or guests: Izak Senbahar, Michael Poliza, Christoph Henkel and Liran Wizman. Allow us to take you away on an inspirational journey from the American West to Manhattan’s Upper East Side – and all the way to the Seychelles. We hope you enjoy the new issue! Yours,

here are a handful of places that defy certain rules of economics: the Hamptons in the ’70s, St. Barts in the ’80s, José Ignacio and Trancoso in the early 2000s. These are places where people who have a great deal of wealth go to spend a few days as if they had none at all. Where boldface names trade their Berlutis for Havianas and sit drinking cheap, local beer with weathered old fishermen. Where everyone gets to be themselves, forgets about being “on” and stops being a socialite. Where everyone takes off the mask.

INTERVIEW

1

Once in a Lifetime In times of mass tourism, The Bucket List Facilitator offers the opposite travel experience: total individuality. Founder Patrick Enste talks about unique experiences, goals and wishes. 3

Mr. Enste, in 2012 you founded The Bucket List Facilitator, a company specializing in making people’s exceptional wishes come true. How did you come up with the idea for your company? I had been working in the high-end segment of the tourism industry for quite a while already – renting out villas and chartering yachts. I very much enjoyed the challenge of trying to fulfill unusual requests. For example, things like arranging a meeting with a president, flying two bottles of 1947 Dom Pérignon plus a person to look after them from Paris to South America (the vintage of the Champagne was the birth year of the lady who was going to receive it as a 65th birthday present from her husband) or organizing a visit to an emerald mine in the Colombian jungle. These are just a few of the requests I received, and they inspired the idea. I realized that there was a clientele out there genuinely looking for people who could turn their ideas and wishes into reality. Something no travel agent was offering. this? Between 2005 and 2012, I was in South America converting pri-

vate villas into small boutique hotels and also managing them on behalf of the owners when they first opened. During that time I met five heads of state and a number of Hollywood greats. That probably wouldn’t have happened to me back in Germany. What has been your most difficult mission to date? I know of a car collector who is desperately looking for a 1931 Bugatti “Royale Kellner Coupé.” Only six of these cars were ever built and they are either exhibited in museums or owned by other collectors. To this day, I have been unable to find one for sale that he could buy.

Of all the requests you have received, which did you find the most

5

The world is full of fascinating destinations and things to experience, and 2 Patrick ­Enste knows how to turn your wishes into reality. In 2012, he founded The Bucket List Facilitator in Hamburg, a company that specializes in making a your unusual and discerning dreams come true. Among these are custom-made trips like 1 safaris, 3 trips to the Caribbean (to go diving with sharks, for instance), 4 rides in a hot air balloon at a festival in Cappadocia, 6 expeditions to the polar regions and 5 a special watch by Panerai, like the “Lo Scienziato” whose case is made of brushed titanium. 6

28

A gentleman asked for his personal love story to be written up beautifully like a piece of literature. So we had a custom-made hardback with lovely illustrations produced in a printshop in the town where he had met his wife. I’m a romantic myself, so I thought this was a magnificent silver wedding anniversary gift. Who is your target audience and how much do you charge? My clients are usually over 45, affluent and are retired professionals. There comes a time when people start looking back on their lives and realizing that despite their wealth, they have not fulfilled some of their dreams. My services are currently used mostly by North and Latin American clients, and I charge between five and fifteen percent of the cost of the job.

touching?

How do you develop these special experiences for your c ­ lients?

I try to get to know them as best I can. Some are very shy, so you have to be very sensitive in your approach to finding out the necessary details. After all, it’s all about someone else’s dreams, not my own. Each client creates these “once in a lifetime” moments in their imagination. It could be anything from wanting to own a unique item to meeting a particular person or idol or arranging a trip. You don’t just have to fulfill the wish itself, but also organize all the related extras: the right modes of transportation, the exceptional hotel room, that one special table in a particular restaurant, the photographer who will document the whole thing. Everything has to be just right. Normally, I rely on local guides in the various locations, but if the clients prefer, I am happy to accompany them myself.

On the office desk of Alexico’s president Izak Senbahar, huge piles of paper create a very similar scenario. “Each pile represents one of my projects,” says the dynamic businessman who could easily pass for actor Al Pacino’s younger brother. “I write down notes and thoughts wherever I am, collect them here and send them off to my team. This one,” he says, pointing to the pile closest to him, “are all my current notes on The Mark!”

underestimate bra making, it has its own perks (he smiles again). My parents sent me to the French Lycée in Istanbul. It was a strong school. When I graduated in 1977, Turkey was going through a difficult time. There were fascists, communists, socialists, all kind of movements and the hostility between these groups exploded at the universities. It became so bad that universities had to close for months at a time. My father decided that I needed to go abroad to continue my education. He was a big believer in education. The Lycée helped us with placements abroad and the government lifted restrictions for travel and foreign exchange if you scored high in the national university entrance exam that you needed Mr. Senbahar, last year the German business publication Bilanz-Magto take in order to go to university.

“In this business you have to like people. If you are an introvert, try something else!” IZAK SENBAHAR

Izak Senbahar in the bar of The Mark Hotel: “Branding this place has become my passion. Whatever I can think of to create the best!”


Hotdogs & flowers. Izak Senbahar is now excited to take The Mark to Paris: “We will design it with Jacques Grange and the same team.�


in my sixties and I have no time to waste. Don’t worry about my money. We will build a big building. I will teach you.” So I figured okay, I had warned him enough. We built a great building at 353 Central Park West that still looks good today. Then we built another high-rise on the East Side. After that he said he wanted to get into infrastructural work. I, on the other hand, wanted to continue and build more luxury residential buildings. So I formed my own company and continued building. Paying a lot of attention to detail – is that something you grew up with?  I don’t think so. It came to me gradually. As I continued building I got more and more enamored with design and aesthetics. Good design gave me enjoyment and bad design bothered me. If a hotel room doesn’t make me feel good I change rooms. In hotels I go to regularly, I know exactly what rooms I like. But in a new hotel (he laughs as he says this), my wife will wait in the lobby until I find the right room. But I do it in a nice way. I just tell the receptionist: “I am not happy, I need a different room.” Another thing that makes The Mark so different from other hotels is that it has become such a strong and quite chic brand… 

I really like branding. With Jacques Grange we created a timeless and unique product. The unique design coupled with the location and the service level from the seasoned staff caught the eye of trendsetters, fashion and art people. And Hollywood followed. It is private, chic, intimate, and in my humble opinion, beautiful. So you really are the mastermind behind it all. Were you personally involved in every little detail when you created this hotel?  I

meet every Tuesday morning and go over everything from service to aesthetics to other daily business. We discuss any comments we have received from guests. It is always about what we can do to improve, and our commitment to excellence. One of the biggest and most glamorous events in NYC is the yearly Met Gala, for which stars like Rihanna, Gigi Hadid or Kendall Jenner get ready in your hotel. After the official gala event, The Mark very often hosts the spectacular after-party... 

Almost everyone gets dressed at The Mark and that creates a surreal atmosphere for the departures for the Met Gala. Most of the time we have the Met Gala after-party where everyone returns to The Mark after the dinner. We have had incredible performances from Justin Timberlake to Migos. This year’s Met Gala after-party was hosted by Donatella Versace and Anna Wintour. It was pretty awesome. How much of your success do you think is due to the fact that you bring a European eye and feel to the New York hotel market?  I

do think there is quite a bit of appreciation for European flair in New York. Europeans are more seasoned hoteliers because of their long history with old-world hotels. That does not mean, however, that the Americans are not doing it right. In fact, America has been very successfully emulating the old European-style service and often besting it. You have to create the right ambiance. To me, the question is always – how do we make somebody feel good and at home.

“I tried 11 different mattresses, soaps, croissants. Yes, I can get obsessive...”

How many people work at The Mark? 

We have a big staff of around 300. We run a very heavy service business. We involve the entire staff and ask for feedback on a daily basis. Every staff member feels as if they are part of the family. We have a very good team under the watch of Olivier Lordonnois. Where is he from? He’s French. We imported him.

The Wrangell-St. Elias National Park stretches from Canada’s Yukon Territory to the Pacific Ocean and comprises one of the world’s largest nature reserves.

In the infinite vastness, the Amangiri looks like a dot in the landscape. The surrounding rock faces have been there for millions of years.

QUEEN of the desert It is a place that anyone who has ever visited will never forget. The tranquility, the colors of the desert, the rock formations that are hundreds of millions of years old – time capsules made of sand and stone. At the AMANGIRI resort in Utah, luxury is defined by minimalism. It is the manifestation of entrepreneur Christoph Henkel’s vision in concrete. TEXT: Steffi Kammerer  PHOTOS: Aman


“I was inspired by the tremendous idea of creating something there.� CHRISTOPH HENKEL

A patio for eternity: Looking out at the desert from the Amangiri suite, you see earth colors. Inside and outside blend into one another.

A 24-hour gym awaits those with energy to spare after long excursions through the desert. The Adventure Partners company offers unique outings, for example through the Mesa Rock Slot Canyon (top right). Half a dozen via ferratas have been driven into the rock all around the hotel. Children ages six and over are allowed to cross the ten-meter deep ravine on suspension bridges constructed specifically for them (bottom right). Panoramic windows and open fireplaces abound at the Amangiri (bottom left). The hot air balloon sets off from the hotel every day.

Today, the Amangiri comprises 34 suites with interior walls and floors made of exposed concrete. Everything is minimalist and luxurious in equal measure. Some of the suites have their own pools, but each has its own patio with a fireplace. In the mornings and evenings, guests can sit there and watch how dramatically the sunlight changes the color of the mountains to every conceivable shade from pink to deep red. It is a daily spectacle that never gets old, just like the clear, starry night skies and the occasional desert hare hopping past. The entrance to the resort features spectacular stairs. As soon as it gets dark, flickering candles line the way in, several dozens are lit every night. When you reach the top, a no less impressive, huge space opens up: It contains the reception and a library, an open kitchen, dining tables, extra-deep sofas and open fireplaces. Floor-to-ceiling windows give onto the desert and the swimming pool, which the Amangiri has been built around. The pool itself is only a backdrop for the huge, 165-million-year-old rock that protrudes into the water like a gigantic whale.

than a meter wide, it features an arrow and the word “Amangiri” in narrow black letters. At the end of a long side road that seems to lead nowhere in particular, there is a rusty gate like the kind used for an animal enclosure. The intercom next to the gate is the only indicator that this is the way to one of the most spectacular resorts in the world, whose room rates start at around $1,500, even in the off season: You’re asked to explain exactly who you are and why you wish to enter. Nobody gets in without having made a reservation. The drive through the desert from Las Vegas to this part of Utah takes five hours. Those who can afford it – and many of the guests can – arrive by private jet. According to media reports, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Drew Barrymore, the Kardashians, Gwyneth Paltrow and George Clooney have all stayed here before.

The “White House Beach Villa” is set directly on the beach near Yzerfontein, north of Cape Town.

A Dream in White

The White House Beach Villa stands proudly yet snugly in Pearl Bay on the west coast of South Africa. Some 80 kilometres north of Cape Town, Yzerfontein is known for its long white beaches and views stretching miles out over the Atlantic Ocean. The architect was inspired by the spray of the waves and the fine pristine sand during the design of the “White House”: the full spectrum of nuanced whites graces this holiday home, accented with soft blues. The overall feel is as relaxed as it is elegant. TEXT: Uta Abendroth  PHOTOS: Bryan Traylor

The colours, materials and design details throughout the interior of the house all evoke a sense of being on board a boat.

Maritime style inspires not only the architectural look of the building but above all the interior design: All walls and floors are white in colour, contrasted with blue and white cushions, ceilings and rugs, in stripes or checks. Meanwhile some of the round windows and mirrors throughout the space are reminiscent of portholes. Thin cord between the floor and the handrail form the balcony balustrades, designed in order not to detract from the views. The indoors and outdoors flow seamlessly into one another here, thanks to the fully retractable window frontages. The kitchen features a large central table. The table legs are on wheels, allowing it to be pushed out onto the balcony for dinner on an evening.

experiences, I create an arc of suspense. A successful trip works like a well-written novel: it has a soul, a narrative and offers unexpected twists. You only give away part of the itinerary, because you want to surprise the clients. As an unsuspecting guest, you may, for example, be taken to a forest clearing before sunrise, where a hot air balloon awaits you. Hours later the balloon lands in a deserted part of the savannah, where you find an opulently laid-out breakfast waiting for you. Such “wow” experiences are the DNA of our trips. What have you learned about your clients? It’s important to take guests out of their comfort zone, but not too far or for too long. For example, guests may spend one night in tents and sleeping bags at an altitude of 2,000 meters on the edge of an active volcano, with a great view of the redhot, bubbling lava and the bright yellow sulfuric rock. After this glimpse into hell, they will spend the following night at a high-end lodge with box-spring beds and a luxury spa.

How did you become an actor at age 10?  My parents’ restaurant was located close to the Studio Hamburg film production company, so their patrons included many producers and directors. One of these gentlemen took a shine to my sister and thought the quickest way to her heart was through her little brother. So he offered me a part as an extra. You acted in roughly 80 movies. Why didn’t you stick with acting?  At 17, I played the young version of German writer Walter Kempowski in a two-part TV drama and decided that this was the right moment to leave. Parroting words in a script written by others wasn’t going to be fulfilling in the long run. At the age of 18, I moved to the U.S., where I graduated from high school. I went on to study computer science in Oklahoma before founding an IT company in Hamburg that quickly became very successful.

Most people will only close one door if there is another one already open. I’m the kind of person who will close the door first, then looks around for new doors that are opening.

INTERVIEW: SVEN MICHAELSEN

That’s where I met gastronomy magnate Stefan Breuer. He said: “I have a helicopter in Switzerland and a farm in South Africa. Would you be interested in organizing a helicopter trip from Ascona to Kruger National Park and accompanying me on the journey?” I said yes and managed to convince Breuer that it would actually be nicer to travel to Cape Town from Hamburg, Germany. News of our eight-week helicopter trip got around. Suddenly, there were 30 people interested in similar trips. So, an off-the-wall idea turned into a passion and a job. Which parts of Africa would you say are definitely worth seeing?  My favorite regions are northern Kenya, northern Namibia and northern Tanzania.

The hotel offers all-inclusive daily packages, such as “Desert Fire,” which consists of yoga, a via ferrata excursion including the suspension bridge, hydrotherapy, Thai massage and a sound bath for around $1,500. According to Julien Surget, the manager of the hotel, it is all about “transformative experiences. Our guests want to really experience the environment.” And the Amangiri does not cut any corners: yoga by the light of a full moon or at sunrise. As an extra treat, guests can also set off to a yoga session by helicopter from the hotel’s own helipad. On a hill, roughly 300 meters above Lake Powell, you can unroll your yoga mat and pracround the same time that he founded the tice without any interruptions – guaranteed.

The result looks as though the Amangiri had been hewn into the rock. Three architects worked on the project, led by Rick Joy from Tucson. The hotel’s interiors were conceived by renowned architect Annabelle Selldorf, who is an old friend of Henkel’s. She also designed a stand-alone villa further up from the hotel. It is used to accommodate guests who would prefer to enjoy the utmost privacy and not be seen by anyone. At some point, other villas will be added, but there is no rush, Henkel says. “There is no pressure. Any growth should be organic.”

Ulrike Crespo, Kehrer, approx. € 44

The Dallol crater in the Danakil Depression in northeastern Ethiopia is one of the hottest and most inhospitable areas on earth. In 2017, German photographer Ulrike Crespo spent time traveling in this desolate but fascinating part of the world. On 184 pages, she shares what she saw – stunning desert landscapes shimmering with amazing colors. A book of plates featuring sulfur pools, salt lakes and camel caravans. Magnificent!

Asia & Oceania

Reuel Golden, Taschen, approx. € 50

This book chronicles people, cultures, archaeological discoveries and natural treasures in Asia and Oceania. It contains more than 250 images from the National Geographic archives, which spirit us away into unfamiliar worlds. Works by celebrated photographers ­Steve McCurry, Jodi Cobb and Frans Lanting invite us to travel all the way from Siberia to New Guinea to the Marshall Islands.

Sani

Sani Resort, teNeues, approx. € 50

The five-star Greek eco-resort Sani on Chalkidiki peninsula is surrounded by the scent of pine, sparkling azure waters and endless beaches that appear to have been dipped in gold. The gorgeous, 400 hectare family-run resort on the Aegean Sea combines luxury with sustainability. After flipping through the book’s 128 pages you’ll feel like you’ve found paradise.

BOOK TIP

Living on Water Phaidon, approx. € 40

Architecture and water have always gone together well, and the 55 homes pictured in this book – sharply contoured buildings and romantic residences alike – all bear this out. Ideally situated by or on the ocean, a lake or even a river, they are all wonderfully embedded in their natural surrounding. Whether it’s conjured by a building’s reflection or emanates directly from one of these homes on the water, the magic cannot be denied.

The Great Outdoors Markus Sämmer, Gestalten, approx. € 34

If you love camping and spending time outside, but still want to eat great food on your vacation, this is the book for you. German author Markus Sämmer (chef, surfer and enthusiastic mountain climber), has tried out each of the 120 recipes he presents. There’s something for everyone and every occasion, as well as helpful tips and tricks for preparing breakfast or dinner, on a grill or on a camping stove, hot or cold. So what are you waiting for?

Our creative team and myself sit around a table for a few hours weekly and try to create things like the hotdog cart, flower cart, Bergdorf’s 24-hour delivery, The Mark pedicabs, The Mark Boat, etc. We are always trying to come up with original ideas and trends that we feel add to our guests’ experience.

Actually, we originally opened our sales office the very same day Lehman Brothers went bust (of course we didn’t plan it that way!). The financial crisis put a hold on construction for four years.

It would drive my mother crazy until one day she started dancing to my beat. I knew then, I had made it into the big leagues (he chuckles). Once I was able to afford to hire bands or DJs for parties I would join in and perform here and there. The New Year’s Eve party you just mentioned was a lot of fun.

Home to Qi

T

Places where positive energy seems to have a particularly strong effect. The volcanic island of Ulleungdo in South Korea, located 350 kilometers east of Seoul in the Sea of Japan, is such a spot. The locals speak of unusually strong qi energy fields that permeate the island. Chanjoong Kim, the head of Seoul-based architecture firm The System Lab, has creatively interpreted this aspect of the isle: the Kosmos Hotel conceived by him is an organically designed building. Its white exteriors are reminiscent of a gentle wave washing around the space behind and underneath the hotel. From a bird’s-eye view, the hotel looks like a churning whirlpool. It is not hard to imagine energy fields having an effect on this structure. Contemplative calm reigns in the high-ceilinged rooms of the resort. Their straight-forward design features blueish-gray stone floors and the exclusive use of shades of white. In some ways, the rooms are evocative of seashells. The structure and character of the hotel demonstrate a profound respect for the setting and for the nature of the human being.

Architect Chanjoong Kim considers his design for the Kosmos Hotel to be a repository for energy rather than a building.
