For Immediate Release
THELUXENOMAD.COM LAUNCHES A WORLD OF WANDERLUXE FOR LESS WITH
AN INTERNATIONAL VILLA COLLECTION
APAC’s preeminent luxe-for-less travel booking portal expands with an exquisite villa
collection, now including popular European destinations.
The newly launced site features innovative features such as a group booking button
Leading luxury villa and hotel booking portal TheLuxeNomad.com has re-launched with over
1000 properties across Asia and Europe. Originally launched as a flash-sales only site in July
2012, the fast-growing startup has quickly emerged as a regional trendsetter in the travel market,
shifting its focus to villa bookings in the past year.
“The villa market has picked up exceptionally well, which is why we’ve redesigned the site to
make booking your luxury escape even easier and more enjoyable” says Stephanie Chai, Founder
and CEO of TheLuxeNomad. “New features, such as a live instagram feed of properties, really
bring our travel destinations to life. Plus, our group booking button allows friends and family to
conveniently split the cost of a trip.” With Europe touted as Asia’s most popular outbound
destination, TheLuxeNomad.com has added key properties in Greece and Italy to its collection.
“Villas require curation because most properties do not have a recognised brand name. When you
are flying a group of 10 or 14 people over for a holiday, it’s imperative you book with someone
TheLuxeNomad.com curates exclusive villas which come with a private pool, chef and butler
In tandem with its new focus, The Luxe Nomad has raised funds from strategic investors such as
Douglas Khoo, one of the founders of Qunar, China’s largest travel portal, and other private
investors. “When I first came across Stephanie and her team I gave them a test – to find me a great
5-bedroom villa in Phuket for my family and I. Not only was the rate cheaper than the hotel I
initially booked, it was a true 5-star experience as we had our own infinity pool, butler and private
chef,” Khoo notes. “Whilst there are travellers who just want the best deal in town, there are
others such as myself who want a site that makes booking a stylish getaway easy. With
TheLuxeNomad.com, you know that it’s a combination of both”.
According to the ITB World Travel Trends Report 2014, Asia takes the lead in the international
tourism market. Outbound trips from Asia itself increased by 53% from 2009 to 2013, and when it
comes to outbound trips, Europe tops the list for the Asian traveler, making adding European
villas a natural step for TheLuxeNomad.com.
TheLuxeNomad.com is Asia-Pacific’s leading luxury
villa and hotel booking portal with over 1000 properties
featured at affordable rates. Properties are curated and
hand-picked by its team of nomads, complemented by
beautiful imagery, as well as online magazine editorials,
and insider tips from a host of celebrity “Nomads On The
Go”. The site has also launched its own online magazine,
WanderLuxe, which combines fun travel-centric content
making TheLuxenomad.com the region’s go-to website
for all things travel.
The site is run by Singapore-based Luxe Nomad Pte Ltd
with offices in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Hong
