What to do when you’re so well‑travelled – and well-connected – that your own knowledge supersedes that of your members-only luxury travel club? If you’re Mona Khalil and Rana Dababneh, you start your own consultancy: Pomalo (pomalotravel.com; bespoke itineraries price on request), a Dubai and Amman-based, small-scale, all-bespoke luxury travel design company (though they accept clients from all over the world). Their mantra: no single trip is ever identical to another – and the more off-piste the itinerary, the better. Recent highlights include a yoga retreat in Iceland incorporating volcano climbs and long gallops on Reynisfjara’s black-sand beach; and private after-hours visits to the Jerónimos Monastery in Lisbon.
