About Collective Retreats
Let's get to know each other
Collective Retreats is a new, meaningful way to travel. Each retreat is located in an iconic destination and features luxury outdoor accommodations, exceptional culinary experiences, and genuine hospitality. We created Collective Retreats because we love travel and believe in its power to help us connect—to places, to people, and to ourselves.
We love travel and hospitality—a shared appreciation of exploration, adventure, and innovation. We’re dedicated to making luxury coexist with ruggedness, fine dining to exist under the stars and people to connect with unique places and the people around them.

Our Collective Mission
To revolutionize outdoor hospitality 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, 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 aim to create transformative moments and a way of traveling that would provide connection and meaning. Luxury coexists with ruggedness, fine dining happens under the stars, and our guests connect deeply to a magical place, to those around them, and to themselves.
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.
“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.
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.
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.
Our Collective Viewpoint
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.
