Asia-Based Secret Retreats and Rare India partner to serve better their respective community’s members and clients
We have all learnt during the pandemic the importance of community and collaboration, and it is with that spirit in mind that both Rare and Secret Retreats agreed that a collaborative partnership between them will be mutually beneficial for all: members, guests, agents and media.

Representing together a collection of 200 independently owned boutique hotels, lodges, camps and palaces, but also restaurants and cruises across Asia, Secret Retreats and Rare share the same values, ethos, vision and selection criteria for their members and aim to introduce new travellers to discover the diversity of Asia as well as to promote sustainable tourism practices.

The partnership will help to serve each community’s existing members and clients by promoting the other’s offerings allowing travellers to meet passionate hoteliers and chefs and discover the richness of authentic hospitality on the different countries across Asia. It will help also each member property to be known to a wider audience, increase market penetration with both the B2B and B2C markets and to share best practices to benefit both communities across multiple levels: sustainable practices, supporting local communities, developing experiences...

 



“Secret Retreats shares a common objective with Rare – to continually discover and help other people discover the heart of Asia. We share the same commitment to quality and service and we also like to share our “secrets” – our knowledge and our terroirs – with other travellers. By entering into this partnership, we are certain that travellers who have trusted Secret Retreats over the past eight years will now find the same insight and intimate experiences with Rare properties,” said Secret Retreats Managing Director, Stéphane Junca.



“The pandemic seems to have nudged Rare & Secret Retreats towards a slightly better world where partnerships and collaborations seem to lessen our pain. For Rare to collaborate with Secret Retreats means to join forces towards a common destination where like siblings we seem to have grown to common values, to promote travel and experiences which are earth friendly and people centric. It also mean many more destinations to a wider audience of world travellers,” said Shoba Mohan, the Founder of Rare.
