Lauren Berger Collection specializes in bespoke hospitality, providing unrivaled levels of comfort and service in exclusive properties around the world
In the world of luxury travel, certain things are a given—lavish accommodation, extensive amenities, and excellent service. But, for Lauren Berger, the hospitality offered to guests of the Lauren Berger Collection goes far beyond this.
“This is not just my business, it’s my life,” she says. “It’s my world, it’s what I do. If I only had a day to live, I would spend that day taking care of my guests.”
With around 300 select and luxurious properties in more than 20 countries and islands worldwide, Lauren prides herself on finding the perfect home for each guest; homes that are not only elegant and sophisticated but also the perfect fit for the guests staying there.
“Hospitality really is what I’m made of,” she says. “It’s not just what I do for a living. I take care and decorate for my guests to make them feel like they never left the comfort of their own home.”
Lauren Berger Collection is underpinned by the philosophy of personalized hospitality, where a guest’s every whim is fulfilled, and the team combines discretion with efficient service. A 20-hour day is not uncommon for New York-based Lauren, as she responds to emails and requests from guests from around the world, including Europe and Brazil. However, the most important thing is that individual touch.
“I try to spend as much time as I can getting to know my guests before their arrival,” she says. “Detailing in my homes is not just about comfortable beds, pillows, and blankets. It’s about paying close attention to their needs, whatever they might be.”
Luxury on tap
From the Hamptons to the Caribbean, from Paris to the Adriatic, the international properties offered by Lauren Berger Collection are without exception spectacular. One of the latest luxurious additions is Chalet des Sens in Megeve in the French Alps, whose unique quality, comfort and caring staff make for an unforgettable stay and a devoted clientele.
“This outstanding chalet is a piece of artwork,” says Lauren. “A ski-in, ski-out chalet, it’s one of the most extraordinary and most elegant homes in the world for rent. The home is truly fit for a king.”
Lauren Berger Collection offers membership programs, while regular guests and those enjoying lengthy stays are rewarded with VIP Ambassador Concierge Service and the option to include yachts, luxury vehicles, and classic sports cars. No request is too difficult, be it private-jet services, a 24-hour butler, an in-house chef and sommelier, or a crew for a luxury yacht.
Hospitality is what I am made of — not just what I do for a living
“There’s nothing I love more than taking care of my guests,” says Lauren. “There are no limitations whatsoever, no boundaries. If it’s legal, if it’s possible, it’s done.”
The collection is expected to expand, enabling more guests to experience these outstanding levels of service and hospitality. “Some of the grandest families from around the world would like Lauren Berger Collection to represent their properties,” says Lauren. “They own outstanding properties that have never been on the market.”
But whether these properties belong to royalty or the tech elite, Lauren ensures every guest is given a welcome to prove the truth of her motto—“never leave home.”
