“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper”.
William Butler Yeats
AT Luxury Advisory was born from a long-standing dream to provide tailor-made services to a discerning clientele. Ana’s extensive travel and hospitality background is supported by a strong network of top industry professionals.
Taking inspiration from Italy’s understated sophistication, its contemporary dolce vita, combined with knowing and understanding her clients' requirements allows Ana to craft unique journeys and hospitality consultancy projects in Italy and worldwide.
By considering and qualifying each client’s style, preferences, and context of every travel request, Ana uses her expertise, unique industry connections and savoir fare topped with personal favourites to curate high level and customised experiences including the best of aviation, hotels, spas, villas, restaurants, wines, yachts, fashion, watches & jewellery, cars and more.
An independent affiliate of First in Service, a member of the prestigious Virtuoso network, AT Luxury Advisory has direct access to top hotels and travel partners worldwide. These partnerships allow clients to receive outstanding VIP treatment and added value.
Ana specialises in helping existing and new properties to flourish within the highly competitive international luxury hospitality market establishing an individual strategic Sales & Marketing plan based on innovative ideas, industry know-how and core values to generate outstanding and long lasting results. Projects include brand identity, positioning, rate strategy and revenue management, distribution, evaluation and implementation of affiliations, consortia, trade events and other premium networks as well as providing support in recruiting and developing talents.
Born in Rio de Janeiro, Ana chose New Zealand as her residence for university to pursue a degree in Design.
After returning to Brazil, Ana worked four years for Antonio Bernardo, a famous jeweller, overseeing sales for his top clients and celebrities. A desire to expand her career drove Ana to return to her roots (being half Italian) and obtain a Master’s degree in Luxury Management at the Polimoda School in Florence.
Having studied branding and marketing strategies for the luxury sector, Ana decided to pursue her passion for the travel industry – transitioning into bespoke hospitality communications at the J.K. Place. From there she worked at the Capri Tiberio Palace, in the privately owned Ferragamo’s Il Borro Estate and Villas and lastly at Borgo Santo Pietro & Satori Yacht, in various managerial positions.
Living in Italy for more than a decade has allowed Ana to discover some of the most beautiful and magical hidden parts of the country that most travellers never get to see.
The idea of starting her own company was a natural evolution following Ana’s over seventeen years of experience within the segments of jewellery, travel, hospitality and the yachting world.
For Ana, experiences are remembered more in a lifetime than objects.
