“I am building my business on my own terms with my 360 Private Travel partnership and all the contacts it brings,” Vilena says. “With the 360 bonding and booking systems to hand I’m freed up to concentrate on the most important thing of all – my clients – and make sure I keep wowing them with incredible rooms and journeys.”
She has 15 years’ experience that was kickstarted with a BA degree in International Tourism Management and Marketing at Middlesex University. Even while studying she worked in some of London’s most renowned five-star hotels. Vilena was soon opening and managing new hotels, which helped forge her expertise in tailor-made luxury itineraries and concierge. It was just a matter of time before Vilena, still based in London, chose to work her own way with a personal clientele.
“I have a vast destination knowledge, and I’ve never stopped loving travel myself. I’ve toured historic Japan, relaxed on the white beaches of St Kitts and Nevis, and partied at the Burning Man Festival in Kerala…”
