Yacht day with the family

One of our members living in Florida in the winter received his whole family down for the weekend. For the occasion, he asked us to suggest different activities to keep them entertained and to make sure that all age groups were going to enjoy them. So we organized a yacht day for the whole family in the Fort Lauderdale canals followed by a nautical getaway to Miami. Onboard the boat, hors d’oeuvres, music, water toys, and cocktails entertained the family and made it fun for everyone. We organized a lunch in one of the best restaurants in Miami, where the guests arrived directly by yacht and were received exceptionally by the owner. Once lunch was over, the guests returned to the yacht to make their way back to Fort Lauderdale, where they could watch the sunset with a glass of champagne in hand and bossa-nova in the soundtrack. The day was a complete success and was repeated a few times during the winter.

A celebration on the glacier

As part of an anniversary celebrating a new decade, one of our members wanted to surprise her husband on the occasion. Being a huge fan of thrilling skiing and activity, we offered him a ski trip to Whistler, which included backcountry skiing, downhill skiing, and a helicopter tour. In fact, we had organized a celebratory cocktail for her husband and their group of friends on one of the most majestic glaciers in the region. All arrived by helicopter, no one suspected what awaited them. Champagne Dom Perignon, caviar, snow crab legs, lobster, and hors-d’oeuvre had been prepared by the chef on site. Creation of tables and chairs in snow arranged in furs had previously been set up by our team. It was one of the most northerly and most exceptional events that the guests had experienced! They were then escorted to the helicopters that took them back to the village, where supper was organized at one of the best steakhouses in Whistler.

A private dinner at the Vatican

During a business trip to Rome, one of our members wanted to organize a completely unusual activity to surprise his business partners. Knowing our desire to create out-of-the-ordinary activities, he asked us to organize an exclusive event never before done at Arthur Majordome. It was with this mission in mind that we managed to organize a private dinner at the Vatican after hours. Champagne, caviar, 6-course tasting menu served with great Tuscan wines had been created by a Michelin-starred chef from the city. According to our member’s comments, diners have never been so pleasantly surprised by the exclusivity, quality, and wonder of a business event. Many have testified to it as one of the best experiences of their lives. Mission accomplished.

A romantic picnic in the Hamptons

During a romantic stay in New York in June, we organized for our members a departure from Manhattan by private helicopter to finally land in the East Hampton where the surprise awaited them. A driver was on hand to take them to one of the region’s most beautiful beaches, where a wonderful picnic had been set up with blankets from one of the region’s most prominent designers, pillows and fresh flowers. They enjoyed a three-course meal in Chinese porcelain, inspired by the local chef. All obviously accompanied by great bordeaux and champagnes. After two hours of eating and relaxing, our members were escorted back to the helipad where their flight back to Manhattan awaited them. The day ended with a Broadway show and dinner at one of the city’s Michelin-starred restaurants.

A unique trip to northern Quebec

With the COVID pandemic, we had to review the journey in all its facets. This exploration allowed us to find hidden gems in places of hardly explored Canada. Thus was born the creation of a tailor-made trip for a member Arthur Majordome and his family in northern Quebec. For the occasion, we organized transportation by private plane, carefully selecting the perfect village to see the Northern Lights with the help of a First Nations member. We organized a unique evening with a local chef who introduced the typical cuisine of this region of Quebec and the children enjoyed this multisensory experience. The family greatly appreciated our turnkey service and the creation of a tailor-made experience. Young and old alike have returned to Montreal with memories in memory forever.

The perfect chalet to spend the summer in Quebec

Let’s face it, Arthur was not the only one looking for the perfect cottage to make the most of a summer without leaving Quebec. The mission was to find a cottage for the family and their pets, not too far from Montreal, but just enough to feel far away. Mission accomplished, they have decided to rent it again for the upcoming ski season!

An extraordinary corporate retreat

When planning corporate retreats and events, so many details are involved that a few are often overlooked, making things disorganized or worse – repetitive. In these cases, we come to provide crucial help to the assistants of the presidents, members of Arthur Majordome, to help them break the routine by exploring different avenues: new restaurants and culinary experiences, innovative locations, transport coordination -chartered or commercial-, and memorable teambuilding activities. For this mandate, we had to take care of the entire corporate retreat, including flights, hotels, activities and clients entertainment for a member, owner of a start-up business. Our creative minds have succeeded in planning and organizing a trip to New York by offering surprising and innovative alternatives to get away from the clichés of the Big Apple. We really had a lot of fun showing New York in a whole new light to this member who loves new and exclusive experiences.

A holistic experience in Tulum

One of our members wanted to live a unique experience and find a way to disconnect from his daily life, surrounded by his closest friends. We orchestrated, with the help of our contacts and partners in that region, a VIP and completely “holistic” experience. A short chakra realignment session at a high-end spa, guided by a local Mayan shaman, reservations in a mystical villa in the heart of the jungle, followed by a sensorial relaxation experience in a resort on the beach, accompanied by exclusive access and surprises throughout the stay.

Get a reservation in a sold-out restaurant

It is the kind of little extra that makes our reputation here and internationally, and that our members truly appreciate. Our client wanted a spot in a starred restaurant and, after calling herself the first time and finding that it was not possible, she handed it over to our team. We managed to get her a reservation at the time she wanted, as if by magic! Now she no longer has to worry, now she calls us first! Of course, when it is really not possible, we suggest comparable options, but never without first asking the Maitre D to pull out his hammer and build us a table … Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

A romantic weekend getaway

We cherish this type of request because we love to be the accomplice of thoughtful attention between lovers! #ArthurAime ! One of our members wanted a weekend of relaxation with her husband who was negotiating a business deal that was not relaxing at all. We managed to find them the perfect room – threw in a little upgrade in the process – and a romantic evening at the hotel restaurant. We were happy to receive a message from the satisfied member on Monday morning telling us that his spouse really liked the surprise and was ready to attack the week ahead!
