With its innovative Blink program, Black Tomato is redefining what luxury travel means today.
 

For a trip to Villamar, Bolivia—located in the rugged Andes Mountains, and dotted with salt lakes and volcanoes—Blink set up a lodge tent adorned with luxe furnishings and indigenous plants. For $198,000 per couple, this three-day adventure included a full staff, guides, meals, custom-designed accommodations, transportation and more. 

Although the world is teeming with incredible destinations, honeymooners seeking that once-in-a-lifetime trip that merges adventure with extravagance may have found themselves at a loss. Now, with the launch of Blink, luxury travel company Black Tomato is filling the void with a service that builds bespoke, glamorous temporary structures in some of the most beautiful, isolated spots. “The Blink traveler seeks far-off locales that no one else will ever see, and longs to discover the world in a way that is entirely [his/her] own,” says Black Tomato co-founder Tom Marchant. “[These people] are seekers of the unknown who want to sleep under the stars but expect the bespoke luxuries that only our team can provide.”

From start to finish, the experience is seamless, with couples meeting with travel experts to share their every whim and preference. From there, the team creates a complete package, including transfers to the locales, food and beverage, staff and more. “If guests want a wine cellar and sommelier, we would be happy to create [that] and source talent,” Marchant says of the possibilities and staff, which includes butlers, chefs, spiritual healers, spa therapists, adventure guides—and that’s not all. Structures, such as yurts and various tents are available, as are completely customizable interiors (think a Hästens bed with mink throws, Frette linens, Diptyque candles and more). Says Marchant, “As people constantly search for what true luxury is, Blink, in our eyes, represents what it should be: the ultimate expression of creativity in action.”
