Passion is at the heart of what we do. Our community is why we do it.

Who We Are

Our teams have been delivering luxury, privacy and adventure in the best destinations around the world for more than a decade. We’ve curated a rare collection of ultra-luxury villas, chalets and estates, and paired them with immersive experiences and thoughtful hospitality to create once-in-a-lifetime adventures — and memories — for our community of travelers. Explore the Cuvée difference.

Who We Are

Our quality and personalization have garnered unparalleled praise from our audience of discerning travelers, who consistently entrust us to host their milestone celebrations, indulgent escapes, and mind and body wellness retreats.

You can trust in our enduring 5 out of 5 star guest satisfaction rating.

Who We Are

Despite our commitment to our guests, we are not a membership. We know your travel needs change. So we invite you to experience the exceptionally tailored guest planning and elevated cultural experiences as often or as seldom as fits your lifestyle.

Who We Are

Ultimately, through our work in travel, we wish to give our guests and their families (the Cuvée community) an opportunity to authentically experience some of life’s greatest treasures — joy, wonder, and carefree ease.

We know you’ll see the difference.

Introducing Our Experience Curators

The quintessence of Cuvée, our Experience Curators are our heart and soul, delivering “The Art of Discovery” to our guests, every day.

The integrity, honesty, and respect within our Cuvée team are the reasons I’m very proud to be part of this family.

The satisfaction of having such an enormous impact on our guests and striving to exceed any expectations is extremely gratifying and is the reason I am lucky to say that I love my job with Cuvée.

We make their “rêves” come true.

My favorite moment of every guest stay is when our Cuvée guests walk into our St. Barts villas for the first time and run outside and are breathtaken at the beautiful Caribbean views. The beauty of St. Barts is “magnifique” and I’m so lucky to be able to share it with our clients.

I love forming connections between people, concepts, and places.

Helping others make their dreams a reality and assuring that things run smoothly is so satisfying for me. Discovering the world through travel is a passion of mine that I love bringing to others!

Aloha, my friends!

Our Cuvée ohana is the definition of the Hawaiian generosity of spirit. And, here in Hawaii and throughout the Cuvée world, we value family, personalized luxury, and every attention to detail. Knowing that I’ve made someone’s day brings me tremendous levity and gratitude, something we call mahalo here in Hawaii.

The land, our history. The roots, our essence. Italy, our home.

The passion and indissoluble bond I have for my homeland bestows upon me a profound responsibility to help our guests explore Italy’s beauty, discover hidden villages, and share Tuscan anecdotes.

Life is best experienced next to the ocean and soaked in the sun.

Connecting with guests and building a uniquely personal experience for each family is an absolute joy for me. I am passionate about the beauty of Los Cabos and love sharing this incredible place through moments curated by Cuvée.

I love being part of the Cuvée family.

I put my heart and soul into creating long lasting memories for our guests in Los Cabos. Whether they’re enjoying the beauty of this paradise, exploring this incredible land, or experiencing a delicious and authentic meal in our beautiful villas.
