Morning Departures

WE ARE SERANDIPIANS

Serendipity is a legend, an inspiration, and a quest.
It is the wide-eyed and the unexpected.

Serendipity is the mother of all discoveries.
It is the force which brings to life wild and unforgettable encounters,
it is the power to propel our journeys into something life changing.

Life is a mere blink in time, a flickering impermanence.
We must remain inspired by our dreams,
to experiment with our innate search for joy,
to be eager to love,
to achieve self-transcendence,
to connect with unfamiliar cultures,
to lock eyes with Mother Nature herself to feel the full range of emotions she can present.

Serendipity is the Enchantress of life's adventures.

Collectively, we strive to achieve a common ambitious quest, a shared purpose defined by our curated knowledge, our altruistic hearts, our deepest passions, and by our visionary pursuit of an ideal.

We are Serandipians.

We, the Travel Designers, the Luxury Hoteliers, the humble Craftsmen and Masters of the unseen,
with the refined and adventurous Travellers,
we love the art of joy, surprise, and happenstance.

We are explorers of the «Art de Vivre».
We are pursuing an ideology.
Together, we are designing a new beginning, one of wonder and discovery.

We are Serandipians.

DESTINATION MARBELLA


I am thrilled that we chose Marbella to host our 9th Edition of the Essence of Luxury Travel show 2023.

Marbella has an incredibly rich history, with various cultures that left their mark throughout the region. While there have been remains found dating as far back as the Paleolithic age, there are also a number of substantial Roman, Arabic and Christian remains in the historic Old Town, which have been magnificently preserved.

Marbella thrived as an agricultural and fishing settlement from the 16th century, but it wasn’t much later until the mid- 1950s when figures like Ricardo Soriano and, followed by the Hohenlohe, Goizueta, or Coca families, invested in turning Marbella into a symbol of quality tourism. These sudden changes in the area’s economy also altered its inhabitants’ lifestyle.

Led by many aristocratic families that settled in the area, Marbella was part of the route frequented by the international intellectual jet set. World-renowned figures like Liza Minnelli or Brigitte Bardot were attracted to Marbella’s year-round mild climate and the sense of freedom, far from the spotlight.

A tight-knit community of bohemian artists and writers, like Jean Cocteau, Jean Marais, Edgar Neville Romrée, Ana de Pombo or Luis Escobar also found refuge in the area’s beaches, and white-washed buildings, where inspiration flowed naturally.

Marbella is one of the most attractive locations for the international community, which effortless blends with the locals to enjoy the biggest concentration of golf courses in all of Europe, upscale beach clubs and a coveted cultural offering. And, at less than two-hours-distance from major cities like Granada, Seville and Cordoba, Marbella is the perfect home base for the busy traveller.

Today, Marbella is still host to international artists like Antonio Banderas or Rod Stewart and Sean Connery, though, more importantly, the town has rightfully become the go-to destination for an exquisite blend of traditional Andalusian gastronomy, vibrant nightlife and outdoor leisure without losing sight of an authentic Spanish experience.

Looking forward to seeing you in Marbella,

Quentin Desurmont
