by Zoe Dickens
You may not even have set sail on your Med season vacation yet but, to secure the finest New Year’s Eve celebrations, it always pays to plan ahead. For 2019 luxury concierge company Pure Entertainment Group is offering something truly special in Racing Time – a carefully curated 12-day trip that allows guests to celebrate the New Year twice while indulging in gourmet food, fine wine and unique experiences while staying in some the world’s best hotels.
Starting in Hong Kong on December 27, the 30 privileged guests will meet at a welcome dinner before boarding a private A340 jet to Sydney. During a three-night stay in the Australian city guests will visit the famous Hunter Valley wine region, enjoy a helicopter tour taking in the Sydney Opera House, harbour and UNESCO World Heritage listed Blue Mountains and ring in the first New Year of the trip from a private yacht in Sydney harbour.
From here guests will travel to Maui, Hawaii, for their second New Year which will be celebrated with a private beach party featuring Michelin-starred food and Dom Perignon champagne. Along with plenty of time to unwind on the island’s beautiful beaches, guests will also be offered the chance to experience a guided diving tour, whale watching and a private visit to the Haleakalā National Park and Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm.
The final stop on the tour is Las Vegas where guests will experience ‘Sin City’ in true high roller style. A three-night stay in one of the city’s famous hotels will be accompanied by a Casino Royale-themed gambling evening, VIP tickets and a behind-the-scenes tour of a Las Vegas show, supercar racing, a private helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon and fine dining at some of the city’s numerous Michelin-starred restaurants.
To finish the trip guests will return to Hong Kong, landing on January 8, 2019.
The Racing Time experience runs from December 27, 2018 – January 8, 2019 with prices starting at $116,000 per person and are limited to 30 guests. For more information visit purentonline.com.
