Melbourne’s The Royce hotel has been accepted into Virtuoso’s exclusive global portfolio of luxury travel partners.

Comprising over 2,200 suppliers in 100 countries, Virtuoso will present new sales and marketing opportunities to the network’s more than 20,000 luxury travel advisors and their highly desirable clientele.

The 94-room hotel includes 18 spacious, uniquely designed suites, including six two-storey loft-suites with original cornicing which were once home to the original Rolls Royce mechanic workshop, inspiring the hotel’s namesake.

Virtuoso agencies worldwide reportedly sell an average of US$25–$30 billion annually.

“Virtuoso’s acceptance process is incredibly selective, so becoming a preferred partner is a true honor,” said The Royce Business Development Manager, Rui Martins.

“The reputation Virtuoso member agencies have for outstanding dedication to their clients is a perfect fit with our own bespoke approach to service.

“Now that we’re part of this renowned network, we look forward to offering Virtuoso advisors and their clients the special amenities, values and experiences that surpass their expectations.”

The Royce joins Virtuoso’s collection of the finest luxury hotels, resorts, cruise lines, airlines, tour operators and other travel entities worldwide.
