You couldn't travel, so we came to you! Thanks to all who joined our MAK.MOBILE tour in 2020-2021. We're proud to report we won a Gold Award in the 2021 Travel Weekly Magellan Awards for our innovation!
J.MAK knows that you can't know a place until you've tasted, learned, experienced, FELT IT from the locals. And our DMC partners have ALL THE CONNECTIONS for you. In Israel, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Croatia... leave it to them.
Sir.J here, just returned from my first trip to Europe since the pandemic started... what a treat to return! First stop on my hop across the pond was the U.K. to visit several new partners: St. James's Hotel & Club in Mayfair, Beaverbrook Town Home in Chelsea, and Beaverbrook in Surrey.
OMG!! Bonus Commissions from these awesome J.MAK partners (plus a few exclusive offers), because, hey, you deserve it! HOORAY!! LUVYA!!
Founded in the year 2000, the Worldwide Adventures team lives by the fundamental practices of luxury, simplicity, and transparency. Each journey has been thoughtfully curated to ensure that clients experience the best each destination has to offer.
The Beaverbrook Town House is a new boutique luxury hotel in the heart of London's Chelsea neighborhood, and sister hotel to Beaverbrook in Surrey. The property's two beautifully restored Georgian townhouses are home to 14 suites, each styled and named after celebrated London theatres, a Japanese restaurant and a vibrant bar.
Team J.MAK recently checked in at Cape Cod's most beautiful address to report on what makes this resort such a New England icon. 2020 and 2021 were record summers, and leisure sales records, for CBI, a resort with a 107-year history! Proof that it just keeps getting better.
Leave the car home! Try out a sweet ride at these partner properties with loaner cars and auto-focused events that let you hit the open road where the scenery is stunning. And you won't get even one "are we there yet?" Promise.
August is National Wellness Month — and health and wellness is on everyone's mind right now. While J.MAK gets training, Sir.J spas it at Zemi Beach House, and peP.R. gets centered on the beach — we've got a few ideas for how you might nourish and flourish this summer.
Going rugged in the Southwest, tasting the terroir in Bordeaux, or framing a fantastic shot in the Sonoran Desert... no matter what manly activity you're into - seize the day and take that vacay!
It's been a year. In need of sun, sand and a fruity cocktail? us, too. #JMAKSGOTYOURBACK at beaches all over the world - and in your backyard. Take a look for some inspiration (and special offers)...
Jon Makhmaltchi, founder of J.

Axiom has also partnered with luxury travel company Roman & Erica to offer 10-day, $55 million trips for civilians. And J.MAK Hospitality recently joined the effort to sell those packages through advisors; the company says that while the first trip is sold out, there are still two seats available for an April 2022 mission.
The pandemic has made it difficult to safely hold in-person meetings, which the travel industry has thrived on in the past, but one hotel representative has found an innovative solution: Buy a custom Winnebago camper and drive it around the country, holding meetings for advisors at the properties he represents and sometimes even in advisors' driveways.
At J.MAK, we specialize in connecting independently operated hotels and operators with luxury travel advisors. No doubt we have already started to see change and will continue to as we begin to recover. There is room on the advisor side to be placing fees for their services so that they are not solely reliant on commissions should bookings cancel. On the operator side, there will have to be new consideration for deposits, how those funds are spent and when, as well as a revisit of cancellation policies and fees.
To discover unique hotels with personality—at any time of year—here’s where to look. It takes more than Insta-inspiring views and high thread counts to become part of the exclusive hotel portfolio at J.MAK.
