Our Alliance beyond Asia with

Secret Retreats partners with les Collectionneurs, Romantik Hotels and Gondwana Collection to unveil the heart of Europe and some regions of Africa to its travellers. In tune with our common vocation to help travellers discover the world, to offer them unique experiences given with generosity, to encourage a greater curiosity for new regions, new tastes, new sensations and new products, it was only natural that the four communities specialising in charming addresses and refined tables - Secret Retreats for Asia and les Collectionneurs, Romantik Hotels and Gondwana Collection for destinations beyond Asia - would unite their knowledge and passion for travel to offer new destinations, new experiences and new exchanges to their travellers.

Who are les Collectionneurs ?

Founded in 1975, « les Collectionneurs », chaired by the Grand Chef Alain Ducasse, have drawn together discerning restaurateurs, hoteliers and travellers with a taste for travel. They place curiosity, exacting standards and generosity at the heart of a collection of unique journeys and dining experiences.

In 2020, 585 addresses of passionate restaurateurs and hoteliers were selected by les Collectionneurs. With high criteria for quality of services, these addresses have also a unique personality, embodied by the couple or the host who animates the property and offers extra soul that transforms a meal or a stay into a real experience. Present in 15 countries in Europe, les Collectionneurs open their doors to welcome you for your next trip.

Who are Romantik Hotels ?

Tradition, history, quality and a warm welcome are the characteristics of the 200 Romantik Hotels & Restaurants in 10 European countries – mainly in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy. For more than 45 years, the brand has been offering travellers a selection of high-end country inns, city hotels located in the heart of metropolises, and wellness retreats.

United around an exceptional art of hospitality and cuisine, these properties are the ideal starting point for an unforgettable stay: exploring a region, discovering or practising an activity or simply relaxing. Under the auspices of the Romantik Hotels & Restaurants brand, travellers will find an exclusive collection that will meet the highest standards.

What is Gondwana Collection ?

Inspired by our love for Namibia and preservation of its heritage, Gondwana Collection has for 20 years been making Namibia’s many unique African experiences accessible to visitors from around the world. With more than 20 properties carefully and individually constructed by Gondwana Collection Namibia, ranging from secret luxurious refuges for two to comfortable unique lodges to rustic camping offers, the collection today includes quality accommodation offerings across Namibia’s key tourist destinations. Each providing exceptional value. Each with a different character and story of Namibia to share. Each striving to connect guests with the area’s beauty in its most pristine, authentic, and memorable way.

As visitors enjoy the warm Gondwana experience, they are also contributing directly to Namibia’s development, through Gondwana’s many tourism funded conservation, social and integration efforts. This is the Gondwana experience: Namibia with heart and soul.
