Editor: How would you define “Luxury” in travel?
Lambrini: When it comes to travelling , luxury can be approached in many different ways. I believe that the concept of luxury must be closely related to the maximum enjoyment and convenience that the traveler is getting through his stay. The pleasure from a premium experience and the feeling of refreshment that is drawn through it, is what characterizes a luxury trip.
Editor: Where do people, in your opinion, find sources of inspiration? Where do you find yours?
Lambrini: Inspiration cannot be precisely defined. Every person has different sources of inspiration, but also every source of inspiration is reflected differently by every person.Ιn recent years I have noticed that my greatest inspiration comes from experiences throughout my travels. I have always believed that traveling broadens someone’s horizons and develops his spiritual world. I feel delightfull when I manage to capture an emotion or an experience through my work because it’s a way of expressing myself.
Editor: How would you describe your own perfect luxury experience?
Lambrini: The perfect luxury experience is divided into many different factors that can turn a trip into the ultimate luxury experience. Some of the fundamental conditions that must be observed are comfortable accommodation, good food and impeccable views. But don’t forget, in order to be a real pleasure, all of the above must be accompanied by good company and positive mood.
Editor: If you only had 24 hours to get a taste of a hotel experience, what would you recommend guests must do? (in and outside of the hotel)
Lambrini: In case I only had 24 hours to spend in a hotel, the hotel facilities and services would be crucial. A morning session at the gym, followed by a sauna and hot tub, is undoubtedly a great way to wake up in the morning. Delicious meals and a variety of activities in the surrounding area like museums and spots of natural beauty, can complete the experience. While the best way to end a great day is to relax and sleep in a cozy bedroom.
