Our Culture


A team is more than the sum of its parts, but it can not stand if it is not united. The team as a whole must work together to create something big, beautiful and wholly authentic - to be something different and unexpected. We work hard and play together to be the best in the business for our customers and ourselves.

Do it differently (Blazing trails)
Dare to be at the forefront and question the commonplace, be willing to make a change

Be Dynamic and open-minded

Embrace creativity without being reckless, but take risks and aim for something more than the expected

Always deliver exemplary service

We must look to serve our guests with the same care we would want to be bestowed on us, no matter who they are or where they come from. We aim to be extraordinary.

Lead with authenticity
Be honest to yourself and the traveller. If something does not feel right, say something; do what you believe is in the client's best interests.

Visit our website to know more of the The Luxe Nomad!


Founded in 2012, The Luxe Nomad was built on a simple idea - that booking a luxury villa should be easy. With an initial fundraising round of USD 200,000 from Tigris Capital in Singapore, Chief Nomad and Founder Stephanie Chai launched the company out of her apartment living room, along with a team of three humans and two cats (though the cats have since moved on!).

As the company evolved, so too have our vision and our goals. Known primarily as  Asia-Pacific’s leading luxury villa booking portal, we expanded into villa management in late 2017. Today, we boast an exclusive collection of 85+ villas in Thailand and Indonesia; expanding The Luxe Nomad experience from booking to check-out.

At The Luxe Nomad, we believe in going ‘above and beyond’. Our exceptional reservations and on-the-ground concierge teams enjoy Excellent ratings from TrustPilot and TripAdvisor, and will ensure you never have to lift a finger while on your holiday. 

When it comes to the ‘what to do’, our online magazine WanderLuxe and destination guides provide plenty of ideas: from the newest restaurant openings to the best in activities, plus exclusive offers and deals.

Last but not least, we believe in doing our part for the planet. In 2018 we said goodbye to plastic water bottles and straws, and have made a pledge to get rid of single-use plastic by 2020. 
Our mission is to champion, inspire and enable our guests to travel well. We take pride in our attention to detail, our focus on great service, and building personal connections with our guests. By taking the guesswork out of your holiday, we invite you to “Dream a little. Travel a lot.”
