2023 has been a year of partners, and we’re ending it with a bang. ‘Tis the season for celebration, after all, and what better way to do so than with an ever-growing travel family? This month, we’re thrilled to welcome into the Fora community six new partners, from a duo of Spanish boutique gems to an artsy Manhattan hotspot. 

Read on for more details about what makes these properties, and these relationships, so special. Then, sign up to become a Fora Advisor today.

AlmaHotels: enhanced commission & VIP traveler perks

AlmaHotels consist of two design hotels in Spain: Alma Barcelona and Alma Pamplona. The brand as a whole takes hospitality very seriously, and cares a lot about imbuing their properties with a strong sense of place. There are numerous cultural activities to choose from. At Alma Barcelona, you’re steps away from the city’s best museums and entertainment venues. The hotel’s garden restaurant makes for an especially serene place to recharge after a day of exploring. At Alma Pamplona, kayak, cycle and jog in the surrounding nature, then retreat to the hotel’s spa, complete with a dry sauna, steam room, swimming pool and contrast showers. And thanks to Fora's partnership with AlmaHotels, you'll receive enhanced commission and exclusive traveler perks when you book.

Fora Perks:

  • Minibar & coffee kit by Nespresso.

  • VIP welcome amenity.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

Ambiente Sedona: enhanced commission & VIP traveler perks

There’s something magical about Sedona — the red rocks, the good vibes, the famed “vortex” energy portals — and Ambiente Sedona, an adults-only resort in the Coconino National Forest, embraces that magic. Guests stay in one of 40 “atriums,” each of which is outfitted with floor-to-ceiling windows and rooftop stargazing terraces, so the surrounding views can be maximally enjoyed and appreciated. During the day, take a guided hike, attend a crystal workshop, bike up a mountain or indulge in a holistic treatment at Velvet, Ambiente’s spa. Even better, you'll unlock VIP perks for clients and receive enhanced commission when you book.

Fora Perks:

  • $100 hotel / resort credit.

  • Welcome amenity.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

ModernHaus SoHo: enhanced commission & VIP traveler perks

Walking into ModernHaus SoHo feels like walking into a modern art gallery. The decor is clean and colorful, art is everywhere and the lively common spaces (a sleek rooftop pool bar, a hip Mediterranean restaurant) are beloved by savvy travelers and fashionable locals alike. Speaking of art, works by renowned artists including KAWS, Harland Miller and Jean Dubuffet are on display throughout the property. Plus, the location is prime. More galleries, restaurants, bars and some of Manhattan's best shopping are all within walking distance, if not right across the street. And don't forget: you'll get enhanced commission and snag exclusive client perks when you book.

Octant Hotels: VIP traveler perks

This Portuguese hotel collection is all about delivering a truly local experience. Each unique location — Douro, Furnas, the Algarve — determines the design and direction of the hotel. The food is locally sourced, and the experiences (surfing, cooking classes, meals cooked by locals, pottery workshops, hot-air balloon rides) allow guests to immerse themselves into each locale. Octant is big on authenticity, and helps guests experience Portugal in a more meaningful way. And because of our partnership, when you book an Octant hotel, you'll unlock VIP perks at select properties for clients.

Fora Perks (perks vary by property):

  • Complimentary 50-minute massage for two.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check in/out whenever possible.

Firmdale Hotels: VIP traveler perks

Firmdale’s 10 stylish hotels in New York and London are a study in chic, meticulously sourced design. Kit Kemp, the brand’s co-founder and creative director, is a master at combining British sophistication (pastel hues, bold patterns, posh gardens) with modern art, antiques, global artifacts and a warm playfulness. Afternoon tea at any Firmdale property is top-notch, and the brand’s restaurants — bustling art-filled spaces serving refined, comforting fare — are just as inviting. Even more inviting? Fora Advisors will get exclusive client perks when they book.

One Hundred Shoreditch & Lyle Washington DC: enhanced commission & VIP traveler perks

These fun, trendy hotels are both part of Lore Group, a super chic hospitality company that designs and manages hotels, restaurants and bars in Amsterdam, London and DC. One Hundred Shoreditch, in London's East End, is a neighborhood hotspot, with a sexy rooftop bar, a cozy coffee shop and yet another sexy bar in the lobby. (Don’t miss the latter’s live DJ sets on Thursdays and Fridays.) And the gym is *chef’s kiss*: their “Peloton Studio” comes equipped with the fitness company’s treadmills and bikes, and guests staying in a Studio Suite can even have a bike brought up to their room. (See more of the best hotel gyms.) At the Lyle Washington DC, in the city’s Dupont Circle neighborhood, expect a clean and modern aesthetic, plus a distinctly local feel. All of Lore Group’s properties have that intimate, neighborhoody, hyperlocal vibe we love. And now, Fora Advisors will receive enhanced commission while unlocking VIP client perks when they book.

Fora Perks:

  • $50 food / beverage credit.

  • Welcome amenity.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.
