Four Seasons Private Jet has updated its 2024 itineraries, which include the new Asia Unveiled, with 16 unforgettable days that span Tokyo, Bali, the Maldives, Hoi An, Bhutan, Angkor Wat and Bangkok, in addition to bringing back popular private jet journeys African Wonders, Timeless Encounters, World of Adventures, and more. Four Seasons Private Jet has been incredibly popular; its 2023 journeys are already 90% sold out.
Particularly in these pandemic times, where some Asian countries have been slow to reopen to independent travelers (see Why Japan Hasn't Reopened to International Independent Visitors) and COVID-19 protocols and requirements as well as commercial flight schedules continue to change, white glove private jet service can be the perfect way to see multiple places in Asia without stress. Plus, for our clients interested in Four Seasons Elite status, the quickest way to it is typically as a Four Seasons Private Jet guest. All of the itineraries are on the new Four Seasons Private Jet, which includes an onboard lounge for culinary demonstrations and educational talks.
We've sent clients to all the destinations on this itinerary, and have personally visited all of them except Bhutan. With our many years of experience traveling to and working in Asia, we can also assist TravelSort Clients with pre and post Four Seasons Private Jet stays, naturally with luxury hotel preferred partner or Virtuoso benefits.
Asia Unveiled (January 11-26, 2024)
Tokyo (January 11-13, Four Seasons Tokyo at Otemachi)
Start your journey in the eclectic capital city of Tokyo, where ancient temples are juxtaposed against modern skyscrapers. Experience a private sumo training session with a master, take a bonsai-styling class with a renowned artist, or visit the Tsukiji market with a professional chef to source fresh ingredients for a sushi-making class. Explore the Meiji-jingu shrine and Imperial Palace gardens before enjoying a shabu shabu (hot pot) lunch at a local restaurant.
Bali (January 13-16, Four Seasons Bali at Sayan)
Bali has long attracted visitors with its picturesque terraced rice fields, jungles, and magnificent ocean views. Explore its dynamic local culture in Ubud, the island's artistic center. Embark on a rafting adventure through Class 2 rapids, take in a shadow puppet performance, cleanse your soul with a traditional water purification ritual, restore your inner balance with a private chakra yoga class, or take a batik painting class in the home of a local artist.
Maldives (January 16-19, Four Seasons Maldives at Kuda Huraa)
One of our clients' absolute favorite luxury beach destinations, the Maldives must be experienced to be believed. White-sand beaches, crystal-clear waters and island breezes set the tone for three days of relaxation and exploration in the Maldives. Take in the sunset on a private cruise, embark on a turtle safari with the Resort’s resident marine biologist, recharge with an award-winning lunar spa treatment under the night sky, or simply take in the stunning views from the deck of your luxurious overwater villa.
Hoi An (January 19-21, Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai)
Ancient temples, verdant rice paddies and pristine beaches give this former port city a timeless flavor that soothes and entices. Get an authentic Vietnamese experience with a festive market dinner featuring the city’s street food specialties on the lush banks of the Thu Bon River. Savor a unique culinary tour by Vespa, opt to get fitted for a custom-tailored outfit, or explore quiet countryside roads and villages on a cycling tour of Cam Kim Island.
Bhutan (January 21-24, Zhiwa Ling Heritage Paro)
Travel by local charter to Bhutan, where you watch daily life unfold and discover why this remote Himalayan kingdom is known as Asia’s happiest country. Embark on a spectacular hike to the cliffside Tiger’s Nest Monastery, uncover Bhutan’s unique history and heritage in the capital of Thimphu, explore the massive walled monastery known as the “Fortress on the Heap of Jewels,” or restore your inner harmony with a wellness retreat incorporating local rituals and traditions.
Angkor Wat (January 24)
Renowned both for their grand scale and elaborate carvings, the temples of Angkor stand as a testament to the Khmer people who constructed them nearly a thousand years ago. On the way to Thailand, touch down for a special day stop in Siem Reap, allowing us to encounter the majesty of this world wonder with ease. Uncover the mysterious ruins of Ta Prohm and Bayon, experience a traditional Buddhist blessing, and enjoy afternoon refreshments in a picturesque setting overlooking the temple complex before returning to the Private Jet for the flight to Bangkok.
Bangkok (January 24-26, Four Seasons Bangkok at Chao Phraya)
For the final stop on your adventure, uncover Bangkok’s dynamic spirit from our riverside urban resort in the heart of the city. Encounter magnificent, gilded temples and palaces, or get a glimpse of life on the river as you explore the city’s interlinking canals on a private klong cruise. Learn the secrets of Thai cuisine in a hands-on cooking class, or go behind the scenes in the up-and coming creative district.
Other Four Seasons Private Jet Journeys in 2024
African Wonders, December 28, 2023 – January 9, 2024
Athens – The Pyramids – Serengeti – Mauritius – Rwanda – Victoria Falls – Johannesburg
Thanks to the holiday timing and the incredible sights and safari experiences it includes, African Wonders is especially popular with families.
Timeless Encounters, March 23 – April 15, 2024
Oahu – Bora Bora – Sydney – Bali – Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai – Taj Mahal – Dubai – Prague – London
This perennial favorite includes bucket list destinations and experiences such as the Taj Mahal, Sydney Opera House, cocktails on the 122nd floor of the Burj Khalifa, and overwater villas in Bora Bora, to say nothing of the option to interact with rescued elephants at the Four Seasons Tented Camp in Chiang Rai, explore Oahu's north shore beaches or Iolani Palace while staying at Four Seasons Oahu at Ko'Olina, or take in Prague's beautiful Old Town, with the Four Seasons Prague as your base.
World of Adventures, April 17 – May 10, 2024
Seattle – Kyoto – Bali – Seychelles – Rwanda – Marrakech – Bogotá – Galápagos Islands – Fort Lauderdale
What could be better than including such diverse experiences as Japan's ancient capital of Kyoto, the curious and fearless fauna of the Galapagos islands, gorilla trekking in Rwanda, the souks of Marrakech and snorkeling and relaxation in the Seychelles all in one itinerary?
Ancient Explorer, May 12-June 4, 2024
Fort Lauderdale – Mexico City – Easter Island – Bora Bora – Great Barrier Reef – Bangkok – Lost City of Petra – The Pyramids – Athens – Madrid
We love the inclusion of Easter Island, Bora Bora, the Great Barrier Reef, and Petra on this journey. The majestic moai statues must be seen at least once in your life, not only the ones that were successfully erected, but also those that languish at the stone quarry where they were carved. Listen to the local Rapa Nui language, and you'll find similarities with Hawaiian and other Polynesian languages, which have common roots. Snorkelers and divers won't want to miss the Great Barrier Reef, and Bora Bora is a wonderfully idyllic resort to unwind at, before the more urban adventures of Bangkok and the architectural and historical marvels of Petra and the Pyramids. Madrid, one of the newest Four Seasons in Europe, ends the journey on a high note.
International Intrigue, September 21 – October 14, 2024
Seattle – Kyoto – Hoi An – Maldives – Serengeti – Marrakech – Budapest – Florence – Paris
One of the original Four Seasons Private Jet itineraries also remains one of its most popular.
Uncharted Discovery, November 30-December 20, 2024
New Orleans – Costa Rica – Machu Picchu – Buenos Aires – Antarctica – Bogotá – Bahamas
To be honest, we worry a bit about the timing of this particular itinerary, as the dry season for Machu Picchu is April-October and there's quite a bit of rain, on average, in December. For that reason we recommend selecting one of the other private jet journeys.
