Exceptional accommodations meet Butterfield and Robinson's trip planning expertise.
As we look forward to 2021 and beyond, one thing that's certain is that we'll all have something worth commemorating: maybe it will be an anniversary, a milestone birthday, a well-deserved retirement party or the joy of reuniting with your family. B&R’s Experience Designers are uncovering new ways of delivering experiences that are at once intimate and immersive to set the stage for the moments we will all be yearning to celebrate.
Singular Stays are a curated collection of private accommodations paired with the creativity of B&R's Experience Designers for a vacation that's as comfortable and care-free as it is luxurious and engaging.
Enjoy one accommodation for the duration of your trip (trust us, these are the types of digs you won't want to leave) and let our team bring it to life with exclusive activities and events that take advantage of your setting.
Once you're ready to gather your crew for a special occasion or simply a well-deserved getaway, we plan it to perfection.
Here are a few of our favourite ‘Singular Stay’ destinations and experiences.

Set sail aboard your private yacht or barge
Top destinations: Italy, France, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Mekong, the Amazon, Burgundy, Canada
Travel idea: Off the coast of British Columbia aboard the Pacific Yellowfin, steam through Desolation Sound—one of the calmest and warmest stretches of ocean in the Inside Passage—to witness land and marine wildlife from the boat tender and on your hikes through the coastal rainforest. Splash around on your kayaks and paddle-boards, forage with Chef Ben for fresh oysters and cap off your day with inspired cuisine and local wine
Soak up the sun from your private villa
Top destinations: Italy, Greece, Provence, Mallorca, Croatia, Corsica
Travel idea: Escape to Tuscany for a multi-generational family reunion: action-packed for the kids, relaxing for the adults and sublime for all. Unpack (only once), make yourself at home and bond over activities like pizza-making, medieval flag-throwing, hiking, biking and more experiences that know no age limits—though we'll be sure to designate the wine tasting for the adults. Chianti, anyone?
Live like royalty in a European Castle
Top destinations: Scotland, England, France
Travel idea: Take over a 17th-century castle seated on the shores of Scotland's Loch Ness. Rooms draped in opulent fabrics and classic wood furnishings meet 500-acres of immaculate gardens to set the stage for a next-level house party. Venture out to the 'real world' for rounds of golf or a paddle on the loch, then drift back in time with evenings curled up in an armchair by a roaring wood fire.
Ranches, resorts and camping in North America
Top destinations: American Southwest, British Colombia, Canada’s East Coast, the Rocky Mountains
Travel idea: Head to Eastern Canada for Maritime magic at Fogo Island Inn. This glass beacon of whimsical architecture peers over the craggy coastline off Newfoundland and features 29 suites, all of which you can reserve for your nearest and dearest. Looking to get even closer to nature? How about ‘glamping’ on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon for a secluded moment in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Experience Africa from your private lodge
Top destinations: Kenya, South Africa, Zambia, Tanzania, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Seychelles
Travel idea: Venture on safari in Africa at a private retreat that allows you to connect more deeply with the land by going off-the-grid—without compromising on sophistication and style. At the exquisite Arijiju, a private home carved out of bedrock in the Kenyan Highlands, indulge in a personal gym, spa and a cliffside pool that watches over the plains teeming with wildlife. Get an up-close look at the area’s big game, like zebra, lions, elephants and black rhinos, on 4x4 drives, horseback riding and adventures on quad bikes.

It’s our mantra and our guiding light—but only because “Slow Down to See, Sip, Taste, Meet, Greet, Learn and Become Enlightened” was too much of a mouthful. Rest assured, no matter where we bike, walk or (when appropriate) ride camels, each of these remains essential to a B&R trip.
Butterfield & Robinson designs and runs the world’s most immersive, inspiring and unforgettable journeys. Crafted from the finest ingredients (exceptional lodgings, incomparable insider access, stellar food and wine, and more than 50 years of experience), B&R trips combine adventure with unparalleled cultural immersion in the world’s greatest destinations.
