Our Philosophy

Ampersand has always believed that luxury is in the experience. We love working with people who adore travelling and who live life to the full. Real luxury is being able to do what you want, when you want to. For us, this involves leaving behind the crowds, finding somewhere beautiful and meeting inspiring people who show us their way of life. We can recommend the perfect hotel to suit you, be it one of our five star favourites or a home-stay where you dine with charming hosts at their table. Personally, we feel that the perfect holiday is a combination of cultural exploration, exceptional hotels and outstanding guides.

The Ampersand Team has a shared quality: we love travelling to Asia. All of us have lived, worked or travelled in our specialists region and we return as often as we can, partly for research and partly because we love it!

Ampersand Favourite

To help familiarise you with the Ampersand style we have developed
an ‘Ampersand Favourite’ icon which we have stamped
on select properties as our utmost seal of approval.
Of course, nothing goes on our website that we don’t rate exceptionally
but these places are particularly special to us.

Ampersand Best Seller

We have stamped this icon on all of our best selling itineraries –
firm favourites of ours and our clients.
All of Ampersand’s tours are tweaked and tailor-made to suit
your individual requirements, but these blueprints have been particularly popular
over the years for good reason!
