Janine Cifelli–Janine Cifelli launched her namesake company in 2007 after a history of success working with the most prestigious and distinguished properties in the world. Since then, Janine has broken from the pack, carving a niche in the industry: personally hand-selecting each of the extraordinary, exquisite, and often family-owned hotels, resorts, villas, and islands represented in their JCR portfolio.
Janine can be found circumnavigating the globe–visiting properties; out-and-about in cities across the US and Canada, meeting one-on-one with A-List travel advisors; attending the world’s most coveted industry and client shows; and in-office, fielding inquiries, virtually educating advisors; and documenting via social media, newsletters, and journalistic-style blogging, the stories, and backstories, people and places that comprise their collection. Janine Cifelli Representation–JCR is a US-based company that provides sales and marketing services for exclusive hotels, resorts, private islands, villas, and destinations seeking representation in the luxury travel agency market.

By staying at Chan Chich Lodge, each guest is directly contributing to our ongoing efforts to protect both the natural and cultural patrimony of Belize.
Soneva Resorts–If ‘luxury’ is defined as a rarity, then in today’s society that means peace, time, and space. At Soneva, their unique experiences are in keeping with their interpretation of luxury. Real luxury is about feeling sand between your toes or enjoying dinner under a canopy of a billion stars. It is about reconnecting with oneself and the natural world, and so the experiences we create for our guests are as far removed from the urban environment as possible—Soneva Resorts intend to provide real luxury and rare experiences that strike a chord in guests’ hearts. Set on remote islands tucked away in the Maldives and Thailand, Soneva’s barefoot luxury resorts are designed to inspire a lifetime of rare experiences. It was their love for the environment that led Sonu and Eva Shivdasani to share their authentic way of life. From that passion, Soneva was born–a collection of ultra-luxury resorts where a barefoot philosophy and sustainable living are part of the natural order. Every day, sandy feet, inspired minds, and full hearts weave a new story. If the experiences are magical, the philosophy is simple; no news, no shoes
