TORONTO — Resort To The Best and Canlink Travel, two leading luxury resort representation companies, have agreed to join forces to operate under a single banner, effective immediately.
Each company represents some of the most sought-after luxury properties around the world. Combined, they will operate as Canlink Travel and will provide Canadian retailers and tour operators with more choice and enhanced services, as well as increase visibility in the Canadian marketplace for the properties they represent.
“The hotels that Resort To The Best represent are my passion and I know that Canlink feels the same about theirs,” said Lillian Day, President, Resort To The Best. “There is no doubt that our combined strengths will be a great benefit to travel agents, tour operators, our hotels and other partners throughout the luxury industry.”
Elaine Carnegie, President of Canlink, added: “For many years we have admired Resort To The Best and their selection of luxury properties. Luxury travel is one of the fastest growing segments of Canadian travel and we are very excited about the opportunity this venture will create for us and all of our partners.”
Canlink will continue to operate their office in Toronto while Lillian will maintain the Calgary office, which was opened two years ago.
Under the Canlink banner, the combined company’s lineup of luxury properties now includes: Jade Mountain and Anse Chastanet in St. Lucia; Hermitage Bay and Carlisle Bay in Antigua; Spice Island Beach Resort in Grenada; Port Ferdinand and St. Peter’s Bay in Barbados; The Tryall Club and Jamaica Inn in Jamaica; Grace Bay Club and The Sands at Grace Bay in Turks and Caicos; One&Only Palmilla in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; and One Aldwych in London, England.
