In 2006, we welcomed our very first guests into awardwinning luxury lodges, on the former farm of our Chief Executive, Matt Spence - we have not looked back since. From decadent castles to beach-side penthouse apartments, Together Travel has grown carefully and with integrity, pioneering unique luxury travel experiences, across the UK and USA. We remain ambitious for growth, with the strong demand for new product from our loyal travellers remaining un-tempered. We now open the Ark as a means of showcasing the very best accommodation that reflects our values, meeting the needs of the dedicated Together Travel audience, who continually seek original, stylish and inspiring experiences. We know our guests - their tastes are refined, but their time is precious, so we are here to cast the net on their behalf, deliver great service and guarantee them luxury accommodation that stands out for all the right reasons. Do you have a bespoke proposition, and want to partner with us on our incredible journey? Step aboard the Ark.
