Butterfield & Robinson, the world’s premier active travel company, has announced a new collection of luxury properties titled Spectacular Stays. The collection launches in North America, Africa and Patagonia, Chile with 17 properties consisting of adventure ranches, world-class resorts, luxury safari lodges and camps – many being hand-picked from B&R trips. Spectacular Stays has been created to allow travellers to book exceptional stays through B&R, with additional properties and types of accommodation being added throughout 2018.
“For decades, the unimaginable, unattainable, and frankly hard-to-book luxury accommodations that highlight our trips have been the hallmark of our business,” says Norman Howe, CEO and President, Butterfield & Robinson. “With Spectacular Stays, we’re not only showcasing our relationship with visionary owners, proprietors and hotel managers around the world, but we’re giving guests access to the first-rate service and accommodations that set B&R apart.”
Guests booking their accommodations through Spectacular Stays will pay the same rates offered by the properties themselves, have unfettered access to B&R’s award-winning team of Trip Designers, and receive add-ons such as complimentary airport transportation, early check-in and upgraded room categories. *
The Spectacular Stays collection represents B&R’s vast network of luxury properties across the world, and in some of the travel industry’s most compelling and diverse destinations. From a growing network of national parks in Patagonia, properties across Africa reflecting B&R’s new Safari offering, and beautiful North American lodges and resorts highlighting unspoiled landscapes, B&R is proud to partner with these leading properties.
“Our trusted partners at Butterfield & Robinson are truly some of the best and most innovative in the business. Their attention to detail, level of customization and in-depth knowledge of a destination are exceptional, and a perfect fit for our property,” says Jessica Cook, Director of Sales, The Ranch at Rock Creek. “B&R guests that stay at The Ranch at Rock Creek will receive a bespoke itinerary during their stay ensuring that each fun-filled day is tailored to their personal preferences and immerse them into the raw, authentic beauty of Big Sky Country.”
Offering a range of additional amenities including available room upgrades, accommodation credits and extras like complimentary wine and shuttle service, the North American Spectacular Stays provide luxury escapes in extraordinary backcountry settings.

Finally, with 11 million acres of newly donated parkland in Chile, the opening of five new Patagonian parks, and expansion of three well-known national parks, the timing couldn’t be better for B&R’s South American offering. Additional amenities at Patagonian properties include complimentary room upgrade, daily breakfast service and unique extras like cooking classes and wine tastings.
The three Patagonian Spectacular Stays are:
- Awasi Patagonia, Torres del Paine, Chile
