With 10-14 people, the goal is to be surprising and hyper customized.  



Things we can support, to make your event over-the-top:

  • Menu arrangement and creation. We work with the resort chef on the menu design and will have printed menus for each guest.
    • To ensure all food preferences and quality standards are met.
  • Event Registration with DocuSign
    • Digital signature collection on waivers using tablet and sending the signed documents to the host.

    • Survey sent and results reported

 

To pull this off we would need to collect a dossier on each guest – which is customary for custom travel experiences. This dossier collects food preferences, interests, social media profiles. We use this dossier to research each guest (privately) and build deeper interests lists


Experiences and tailored gifts, that we can provide for each guest:

  • Themed parties/ experiences
    • If you are into outdoor active lifestyle events, we would plan for those experiences for all.
    • If you are into food and wines, we plan rich and exclusive food/wine types of experiences. 
    • If you are a car lover, we can plan for a racing activity in a private racing track 
 
  • Local attractions with exclusive access (each locations have their local attractions). Like:
    • Via Ferrata 
    • Hot Air Balloon 
    • UTV Tour
    • E-Bike tour
    • Horseback riding
    • Sage smudge
    • Astronomy
    • Qi Gong in the forest
    • Drumming
    • Yoga – Meditation – Pilates – Thai Chi – Sound bath 
    • A shaman for a healing session 
    • Gratitude journaling 

Each of the above activities will have all details taken care of. For instance, if your group want to go to a Ferrata, we will provide new gear, clothing, boots, water bottles, backpacks. All carefully selected from the best sports brands, and adapted to everyone’s sizes. 

  • Curated gifts per person based on interests in dossier:
    • Autographed Album of favorite band
    • Hand rolled cigars
    • Custom piece of artwork in their room with a note that it’s theirs and will be shipped to their home
    • A loved one’s surprise arrival at last day dinner
    • High end luxury item, such as a personalized jewel (for men too)
    • Their favorite water, coffee or snacks in their rooms based on dossier and social media research
    • Specialized guest touches (notes under doors, pre-programmed Alexa notifications and music in each room)
    • Their own new iPad for the event – note taking, pictures etc.


*Note: if any relationship or attendee is limited by law from receiving gifts from the host, we should have the host disclose this and sign a release from Yogando that these gifts/ items are legally allowed.  IE: Government officials are not allowed to accept gifts valued over $100, etc.

Experiences and gifts package can range from $25,000-$115,000 for 15 guests. Depending on how many gifts will be selected.
