Apiary is a private membership based community for families who want to experience the very best of travel, food & wine and health & wellness. We provide our members with a technology based lifestyle management platform exclusively created to service affluent families. Apiary combines the power of technology and the Internet with the world-class personalized assistance and high touch services our membership base expects but has yet to be offered by any other company.
Our mission is to connect our members, their families and friends to lifestyle and leisure choices that consistently exceed expectations. We provide unique insights and experiences that are defined by "interests" and "activities." Apiary leverages our team of global experts, scale of our community and our proprietary technology to ensure the very best experiences at the most attractive prices.
We have outlined a few limited examples of why to use Apiary:
Our members typically have limited available time to plan a remarkable family vacation. Since very few people have trusted friends that have recently travelled around the globe, most of us heavily rely on the following when planning a vacation:
Research. The internet is filled with unwieldy information from sources that are tough to validate. Trip Advisor and Yelp are both heavily populated by a very different demographic. In addition, their algorithms rank top hotels and restaurants based not only on scores but number of reviews so the higher end options get much lower rankings and are not easily visible. Travel magazine writers also have different backgrounds / tastes and are paid to write stories that make trips, restaurants and hotels seem larger than life. Lastly, when you do find useful information, remembering and keeping track of it all is often a challenge and difficult to easily access when you need it the most.
The Apiary Solution. Apiary was formed by a group of affluent families to solve the problems articulated above. The combination of our own vast amount of travel experience coupled with our well traveled senior staff, input from our global community of affluent families and technology platform provide a unique solution not found anywhere else. Importantly, each member has an ability to easily explore their world from an iPad, PDA or laptop and search out the very best hotels & resorts, restaurants and activities recommended by Apiary and our global membership base. In addition, each user has their own home page, enabling them to electronically store and share relevant travel information and save notes (through a review system) which is then shared with the rest of the community (i.e., users have self interested reason to fill out reviews that are in turn accessible by the Apiary Community).
