Who We Are


We created Collective Retreats because we love travel and believe in its power to help us connect—to places, to people, and to ourselves.


But most traditional hotels are simply places to sleep. We’re changing that, with an innovative approach to travel that unlocks the true potential of places.

Our team has decades of experience in travel and hospitality—and more importantly, a shared appreciation of exploration, adventure, and innovation. We are building a company that makes it possible for luxury to coexist with ruggedness, for fine dining to happen under the stars, and for people to connect to a place and to those around them.

Collective Retreats is made up of dozens of talented individuals across our retreats. Here are just a few of our team members.

Collective Good

 

Our Collective Mission

To revolutionize travel through a collection of dynamic destination retreats and enriching experiences that connect person, community, and environment.

Our Reason for Being

We started Collective Retreats to help people experience travel the way it should be—as a way to connect. Beginning with our first retreat in Vail, we took inspiration from the mountains and their raw beauty, as well as our own experiences traveling and connecting with people and places over the years.

 

We aimed to create transformative moments and a way of traveling that would provide connection and meaning. Luxury coexisted with ruggedness, fine dining happened under the stars, and our guests connected deeply to a magical place, to those around them, and to themselves.

Eyes lit up, grins stretched from ear to ear, and over and over we heard, ‘This is travel the way it’s meant to be.’ We quickly realized that we weren’t the only ones craving simple, beautiful travel experiences and thoughtfully designed luxury accommodations.

 

From there, we began bringing our unique retreats to unexpected places across the country. By creating intimate retreats without investing in permanent physical structures, we’re able to focus on the experience rather than real estate. We aspire to return travel to what it should be—a way of connecting to each other and to our natural world. And the foundation of all of this is our commitment to safeguarding these destinations, in form and spirit, for generations of travelers to come.

Our Name

“Collective Retreats” references more than our collection of destination retreats. “Collective” comes from our core belief that we’re inextricably tied to each other and to our world, and that travel is the way we experience, understand, and deepen that connection. “Retreat” is rooted in the idea that travel leads us to a more grounded and true version of ourselves. When you bring these two ideas together—exploration to foster deeper connection—you have the spirit of Collective Retreats.

Like any Collective, we know the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We embrace our connections to each other and to our planet and commit to protecting our natural environments so that future generations can experience them as we have. The thread throughout our mission, our name, and our day-in-day-out work is a stewardship of our environment; we work to leave the world a more beautiful place than we found it, to help people experience and appreciate their natural surroundings, and to inspire others to join us in our mission.

Our Values & Environmental Stewardship

Our values reflect who we are and what we believe in. We’re a team of outdoor explorers and travelers driven by a desire to help others experience the world the way we have.

 

We share a love and respect of wild and beautiful places, and know that that demands participation in the ongoing fight to save them, and to help reverse the steep decline in the overall environmental health of our planet. We also know that travel, especially luxury travel, creates pollution as a by-product. That’s why we work steadily to reduce those harms and practice the most clean and environmentally friendly hospitality we can.

The reality is that unless we address climate change and pollution—both devastating effects of human activity— we won’t have beautiful destinations to visit or environments to experience.

Our work will always begin by first acknowledging that travel is part of the problem. From airplanes to large, resource-gulping hotels, our industry generates significant waste and environmental damage. That is why we are committed to not just minimizing our effect on the planet but proactively working to protect it.

Our Pledge: Collective Good

We pledge to be stewards of the environment in two ways.

First, our retreats are designed to help guests immerse themselves in extraordinary destinations, leaving them more aware and connected to natural environments. With trip after unforgettable trip, we aim to create more environmental stewards to join our mission.

Second, knowing how integral travel is to environmental stewardship, we seek to make our own role in the industry as low impact and innovative as possible.  

Where We Go From Here

We commit to accountability in these areas, to measuring our performance against them, and to continuously improving in each one. We’re all too aware of how big this problem is, and don’t think there are any easy answers. But we believe Collective Retreats has a unique opportunity to be part of solutions that aren’t available to individuals or governments, and we believe all businesses have a responsibility to take steps to stop the environmental crisis we face. We believe in a future of stewardship that is a better, brighter future than our present. We believe in the Collective spirit.

There are more molecules in each glass of water we serve our guests than there are cups of water in all of the world’s oceans. Likewise, there are more molecules of air in each breath we take than there are breaths of air in the earth's entire atmosphere. We borrow from the Earth and we return to it every minute of every day.

To us, this is more than a scientific thought experiment. It’s a deeply humbling but simultaneously invigorating idea. Not only are we connected to each other and the world around us; we’re also connected to generations past and present. The molecules in that cup of water passed through the bodies of Einstein, Lincoln, Galileo, and Mozart; the molecules of air you inhale passed through the lungs of Beethoven and Socrates.

The Traveler's Mark

Long before smart phones and guide books, old world travelers used a system of personal symbols to communicate to each other and connect. We took inspiration from these adventurers to develop the Collective Retreats brand mark, which is derived from the symbol for shelter. In addition, each of our retreats has its own unique badge with marks within representing its standout features. And like the travelers of the old world, each of our team members and guests is invited to create their own personal Traveler’s Mark—a mark that uniquely represents you and travels with you along your own journey—learn more about Traveler’s Marks and our community of adventurers.

The Collective Traveler

As a seasoned traveler, you’re probably accustomed to earn-and-redeem loyalty programs with points or miles. But that doesn’t mean you like them. These traditional programs are outdated for many reasons: they handcuff you to a single brand, reduce your experience to opaque numbers—and who can remember all those usernames and passwords?

At Collective Retreats, you’ll always be an individual person to us. One way that we want to acknowledge your personal preferences, needs, and quirks is by giving you the option of creating your own individual Traveler’s Mark. This unique symbol is a beautiful representation of some of the key qualities you identify with, and a way to welcome you into the Collective family. And, because each of Collective team members and your fellow guests will also have individual marks, we suspect these symbols might lead to some pretty enriching conversations.

Once you create your mark, it will become a part of your Collective Retreats experience before, during, and after a stay at one of our retreats. And that’s just the beginning of our commitment to you and your individuality—you can look forward to one-on-one service, personalized recognition and rewards, and more. We can’t wait to have you in our world.
