For many, a New Year heralds a fresh start. After all, this is a time for reflection and a time to look ahead, learning from the previous’ years challenges, and exploring new opportunities for growth. This is a time for new beginnings, as businesses around the world set their plans for the upcoming year.

Yet, the luxury market never sleeps. Where others might tentatively step, the luxury industry launches forward, capitalising on client interest on the back of the festive season. This issue’s inclusions truly epitomise this mindset. From interior designers and restaurants to wedding photographers and hotels – these are the people who are breaking new ground every day in pursuit of perfection.

There can be no doubt that Cocoon Events is one such firm. As an award-winning agency dedicated to producing luxury destination events, they have harnessed their considerable talents to provide truly once-in-a-lifetime moments. Naturally, we were eager to speak to Cocoon’s CEO, Fabrice Orlando, to find out more about his inspirations and ethos.

Further in the issue, Mario Ovsenjak, General Manager of Hotel Gotham, offered some insight into Gotham’s remarkable reputation and unique approach to hospitality. The 5-star hotel has a history of ‘wowing’ guests with its quirky yet stylish décor, creating a lasting impression that remains long after they’ve stepped over the threshold and back onto the streets of Manchester.

Finally, LUXlife spoke to Nawaf Ali Al-Obaidly, General Manager at Sealine Beach. After we recognised Sealine as the ‘Best Luxury Accomodation’ in Qatar, Al-Obaidly took some time out of his busy schedule to explain how the resort aims for nothing short of perfecting the guest experience.

Meanwhile, the team here at LUXlife Magazine hope that you enjoy reading this New Year edition and hope to hear from you very soon.
