One&Only and Atlantis unveil Ultimate Explorers fam trip winners

Six Aspire agent readers have won a place on a fam trip hosted by sister brands One&Only and Atlantis, The Palm Dubai in partnership with Aspire. 

Ben Murtagh of Luxury Travel By Ben and Elegant Resorts; Ashley Grant of La Vida Travel; Jen Bekker of Travel Counsellors; Olivia Chetham of Papillon Travel; Richard Frampton of Hurlingham Travel and Lesley-Ann Birley of La Concordia Personal Travel will take part in the Ultimate Explorers fam trip in October 2021. 

The seven-day trip will see agents fly to Dubai for two nights, where they will stay at either One&Only Royal Mirage or Atlantis, The Palm, before heading to one of four other hotels in the One&Only portfolio for three nights.

Agents won’t know where they are going on the second leg of their journey until they are in Dubai, but the options include One&Only Reethi Rah, Maldives; One&Only Cape Town; One&Only Le Saint Géran, Mauritius; or the new One&Only Desaru Coast, Malaysia.

The group will then meet back in Dubai for a final two nights before flying home. 

To enter, agents were asked to submit a two-minute video explaining why they should be picked as the ‘ultimate explorer’.

Craig Jeffs, account director for leisure sales for the UK and Scandinavia at Kerzner International, said: “We were overwhelmed with the engagement and excitement the Ultimate Explorers fam competition created.

“The Kerzner and Aspire teams settled in for a day of judging earlier this month and it was filled with fun, amazement, laughs and surprises.
“The breadth of entrants, the effort people went to and the heartfelt words used in the videos was overwhelming and goes to cement why our industry is the best. It also made the panellist’s job extremely difficult. After four hours of judging and some lengthy discussions, our six explorers were finally selected.”

One&Only and Atlantis, The Palm will give away an additional two places on the Ultimate Explorers fam trip over the next month. 
To enter, agents need to log any bookings for all Kerzner Resorts made from December 3, 2020 until June 1, 2021. Agents should send their bookings to by June 1, 2021. The two winners will be selected at random.

The Ultimate Explorers fam trip is part of a Kerzner International initiative running across several source markets, with 40 agents from across Europe taking part.
