Jetset & Travel was inspired by Addie’s passion for travel, love of the finer things in life, and an unrelenting commitment to delighting her clients.
The ultimate connector with charismatic energy. Addie has been in the ultra-luxury spa industry since 2008. She previously worked in hospitality at Montage Resorts and Spa as well as Bellagio in Las Vegas. She most recently worked with Live Love Spa as the Director of Events, a company known as the leading connectors in the spa industry. While working for the company she planned every detail of each event from start to finish. This included group room block contracts, travel and activity planning, as well as cultivating vendor and client relationships. She wanted to continue perusing hotel relationships and planning travel, but with multiple clients, so travel planning was the perfect match for her. She’s an East coast girl at heart, but made the move out to the West to earn a degree in Hospitality Management at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and now resides in Newport Beach, CA. Addie has a passion for spa, health, beauty, wellness and travel. She is a Jetsetter herself and is always on the go, traveling and learning about the next best resort and spa.
First, a packing list! Especially for longer trips. If I’m leaving the country, I always locate my passport, put it in a safe place and make sure that it won’t expire within 6 months of my travel. Next, I make a loose itinerary of what I want to see, eat, explore and do!
Sleeping in and than working out. Preferably running or walking around the local area. Or, if I’m in a winter destination, I go skiing. I follow up my exercise with an adventure to see more local hot spots. Usually this involves getting a little sun by a pool. I’m a “spa girl” and the best time to spa is around 4:00pm so you can enjoy the facilities and then shower and get ready in the spa. I love relaxing in the comfy robes before going out for a nice dinner. Or I go check out some local music after the spa and enjoy a glass of local wine! Whatever it is, it’s always a jam packed day!
Always take a carry-on suitcase. That way you don’t have to worry about your bag getting lost once you get to your destination. In order to fit everything in your small carry-on use spacepack bags and roll everything into them. Also, reversible work out pants (if you like to workout) you can get 2 wears out of them, thus creating more space in your bag!
Addie is definitely one of the best in the business! My husband and I travel a lot and we almost always stay in a 5-star hotel, which means we are also very picky. When we asked Addie to assist with our Paris and Amsterdam holiday, she immediately sent me the best options available. Not only were the prices better than what American Express Centurion could offer, we even received a double upgrade upon arrival. The cherry on top was the handwritten welcome note in our hotel room - I knew I found my girl! Our trip and accommodations were so enjoyable that we will continue to work with Addie forever!-Bri Steck
Addie, we loved our honeymoon! Thanks for all your help. It was incredible. We will definitely use you again in the future. The whole trip was absolutely perfect. We both agree Four Seasons Lanai was our favorite. Super intimate and just an extremely elevated experience. Thank you so much for the recommendations. Again, you were amazing and our honeymoon was TOP notch. We will be spreading your name around.-Melissa Thompson + Phil Kohlagen
Thank you for helping to make our 38th anniversary amazing! The roses, champagne, cupcakes and chocolates were unexpected luxury touches! You really helped to make our stay fabulous! Thanks again.-Jennifer Worrall
We arrived in Costa Rica yesterday and are so in love with this beautiful place. Thank you so much for your help over the past year. I truly couldn’t have done this without you. I will definitely be contacting you when we plan our big honeymoon this year. I’m so happy I was able to work with you through this process. You’re amazing!-Lia Costa Pierce
Thank you so much for everything! This trip was beyond perfect and you made it so easy to enjoy. Thank you for all that you did, looking forward to the next trip!-Justin Bruni + Deziea Klaizner
Almafi was amazing! The hotel was incredible the service and all the employees were so so nice. The breakfast was great and of course, the views were spectacular! The hotel hooked us up with a private beach just around the mountain. We took a small boat to get there and when we arrived we were blown away! It’s tucked into the mountain! They had champagne and fruit on a private deck with lockers! We had the best day there and the best lunch! It was the perfect last day of our once in a lifetime trip to Italy! Thank you again for making it that much more special!-Avra + George Karakoglou
Our trip to Cabo was so amazing! One & Only Palmilla has a piece of my heart. We have never stayed at a place so attentive and pleasant. They anticipated what we wanted before we even knew what we wanted it. I literally got teary-eyed leaving as they knocked on our car door and waved at us as we left because the employees there as so special. We loved the amenities and notes/ornament/balloons you treated us too. They upgraded us to a junior suite! We now want to try all of their properties; Capetown is the next one on our bucket list. The director of sales even came up to us and introduced herself because she worked with you on our reservation so it made us feel special. We will definitely consult you on every trip we take because of the amenities you were able to get us. We loved it, thank you so much!-Karen Todsen
The trip was AMAZING! We loved Lutetia and Sources de Caudalie. The venues, food, and people were all wonderful. We loved Caudalie so much, we want to go back and just spend an entire week there. I can't say enough great things about it, but the staff really made us feel special and we had such a great time. Thank you so so so much for the hotel recommendations, everything you did in the booking process and coordination, and for getting us in at the Michelin star restaurant at Caudalie. It was the greatest vacation we've taken so far, and we definitely did a "cheers" to you a few times while there. You're the best, Addie!-Hefley Family
You are the best! Such an amazing trip. I will be in touch with you soon with other trips I need help planning, I keep telling people you changed my life.-Liz McCray
Addie was amazing in helping us plan our honeymoon. With all of the stress of planning a wedding we were struggling to come up with the time and energy to book our dream honeymoon. Addie listened to what our ideal honeymoon would be like and came back with many options for us to look at. It wasn’t just location either it was flight options, lodging options, activities, and information on the islands themselves. As soon as we picked our destination she made everything so easy. We gave her our information and that night we had all of our confirmations. We will absolutely be working with Addie again on our future travel arrangements.-Rachel Markovich
We had a great time at the Carmel Valley Ranch. We appreciate all your efforts in setting up the reservation. Everything went flawlessly.-Steven Berkus
Thank you so much! We had the most AMAZING time and everything went seamlessly. Thank you for all the gifts at the hotels and all your hard work, it really was amazing and I recommended you to a couple from LA who was at Deplar with us. Deplar stole the show. We definitely want to do another eleven experience resort in the future, maybe for my 40th. We will be using you for all our future vacations. You are truly amazing. Thank you for making it all so easy! I didn’t worry once! It was the trip of a lifetime.-Justin + Justine Solot
Addie was extremely helpful throughout our travel search. We told her what we were looking for and within just a couple days we had a list of 5 options with all the information we needed (hotel, flights, amenities, local adventures, cost, etc.). She is very professional and thorough. When we decided on a location the booking process was a breeze. In just a couple minutes she collected all the information she needed and that was it! We feel extremely confident in her knowledge and expertise. We know that if there are any airline issues that her company will take care of all the frustration and get us to and from our destination efficiently. We look forward to working with Addie much more down the road.-Dan McFarland
I wanted to thank you for planning an unforgettable Greece vacation for our family. Everything worked out perfect – the hotels were great (you know how bougie Lisa is), all of the transfers happened on time and were first class (Lisa loves it when there's a sign waiting when we arrive!), and we sat in first class on the ferry to Mykonos. Above all, it was so nice of you to include a special gift when we arrived in our hotels. Thank you, thank you, thank you!-Michaelis Family
The pleasure of working with Addie Bell starts with her sincere enthusiasm and caring for her clients! The perfection with which she planned and took care of every big and small detail for our girls trip to the Napa Valley cannot be overstated! The continued communication and follow through gave us all the confidence we needed to just show up and have the best worry-free, perfectly planned vacation we could have hoped for! Her connections and contacts for the best accommodations, restaurants, tours and spas were stellar! I am recommending Addie to all my friends and family and will be using her for all my trips moving forward (both corporate and personal). Thank you Addie and SmartFlyer!-Lynne Gerhards
Addie coordinated and executed a flawless corporate group trip for my sales team. She did not leave out a single detail from the start of the planning process, was readily available to assist during the trip and still greatly helpful to provide feedback and answer questions regarding our accommodations and activities when we got back from the trip. I will definitely reach out to Addie for all future personal and corporate travel needs. A+++ service all around.-Green Street Advisors
The resort, the room, the staff and the food were all outstanding. We had an awesome time and enjoyed every minute. We ventured over to Harbour Island and it was nice, but not even close to Eleuthera. Thanks for recommending The Cove, you "checked all our boxes", we're definitely going back and will be sure to use your excellent services. All in all, a wonderful, relaxing and fun filled vacation, couldn't ask for more. We truly appreciate all your help in making this trip a special memory.-Michael Canessa
