Amina believes that luxury travel must encompass three key components: exclusive access, unique experiences, and exceptional service.
This ethos is built on Amina’s more than 15-year career as a luxury beauty and fashion executive where she learned that what consumers truly crave is personalization. Amina’s goal is to get to know her clients as the individuals that they are, so that she can create their moment of luxury anywhere in the world. Amina has fueled her skills as a master to-do list maker, organizational maven, and travel enthusiast and transformed them into a career that lets her create immersive and authentic travel experiences for clients. She is a huge proponent of learning her clients’ goals, priorities, and preferences for each trip, and always encourages them to learn a destination through its cuisine and cocktails.
As a 2020 Travel+Leisure A-List Advisor and Caribbean specialist, Amina particularly enjoys sending clients to “unspoiled” islands like Dominica, Canouan, and Nevis. She also relishes the opportunity to plan what she calls pavement and paradise travel. These multi-destination jaunts take clients to a vibrant city center where they can be immersed in history, art, and culture before being pampered while relaxing on a beautiful beach. Amina’s affection for the Caribbean started early with annual family trips to the Bahamas, and was deepened when she got married on picturesque Green Turtle Cay, in the Bahamas.
The moment I hit the water after jumping off my overwater bungalow in Bora Bora is something I’ll never forget. French Polynesia was the number one destination on my bucket list and it was more spectacular than I ever imagined. When I got to Moorea, I thought I was in paradise and then I stepped onto Bora Bora and I completely understood why it’s ranked as a top destination for so many people. From breakfast being delivered via a traditional Proa boat to swimming with stingrays and sharks, this trip was the perfect mix of relaxation, adventure, and exploration.
My dream vacation day begins with walking up to a view of the ocean around 10am, just in time to have breakfast delivered with a mimosa made with fresh-squeezed orange juice. Then, I’d venture out with a private guide to explore the city center with stops at locally owned boutiques, art galleries, and important cultural sites. After lunch at a restaurant frequented by locals, I’d grab a book from my room before heading down to the beach. The next four hours would consist of me jumping waves, sipping on craft cocktails, collecting seashells, and pretending to read my book while I’m actually dozing off! After a quick outfit change, it’s time to take a chef-led cooking class followed by live music at an intimate venue.
