Artisans of Leisure Offers Honeymoon Registry for Luxury Travelers

Couples design their perfect honeymoon through luxury tour operator; friends and family help pay

Artisans of Leisure, the NY-based luxury tour operator specializing in private, customized tours in Asia, Australia, Europe and India, now offers a Honeymoon Registry. Honeymoon couples plan and book their dream honeymoon, and their friends and family members contribute to the cost.

“Many couples getting married these days are looking for new registry options,” says Ashley Isaacs Ganz, president of Artisans of Leisure. “Our Honeymoon Registry is unique: it allows couples to register for a tailor-made, international honeymoon. Couples will appreciate being able to design their own sophisticated luxury honeymoon, and gift-givers will appreciate the ease with which they can contribute to such a significant life experience,” says Ganz.

First, couples carefully consult with an Artisans of Leisure travel specialist to design their perfect honeymoon. Once it has been added to the Honeymoon Registry database, the couple’s friends and family members can contact Artisans of Leisure to arrange gift contributions. Artisans of Leisure then sends the couple a handwritten card with a personal message from the gift giver. Honeymooners’ personal and travel details are kept strictly confidential.

All Artisans of Leisure honeymoons include accommodation at luxury hotels and resorts known for their design, location, cuisine, facilities and service. Costs also include flexible touring with private guides and drivers, when desired; visas; admission fees; regional transportation; airport transfers; and access to the company’s extensive network of international associate offices. Honeymooners also receive special amenities and privileges (e.g., massages, upgrades, late check-out and welcome gifts).

On this two-week trip, honeymooners stay at Thailand’s most acclaimed luxury resorts: the Amanpuri on the island paradise of Phuket, the Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai in northern Thailand’s center of ethnic and traditional culture, and The Oriental in vibrant Bangkok.
