“Nova Luxe” is a play on the Latin phrase lux nova, or new light. This phrase was coined by a 12th century French Abbot, who, upon seeing sunlight streaming through a stained glass window for the first time, marveled at the light’s transformative beauty. Like the ability of light to illuminate new perspectives, travel ignites transformative experience which gifts travelers with the ability to see the world in a new light.
Hi! I’m Kelly
Travel Design Specialist
It all started when I had the opportunity to move to England.
My family and I lived there for a year when I was 13 years old, and that is where I first immersed myself in history and culture. And yes, I even attended school in a 500-year old manor house that looked and felt strangely similar to J.K. Rowling’s magical tales.
Growing up, I would get lost in whimsical stories about adventures in far away places. I’ve had a passion for adventure for as long as I can remember.
After college, I set out to do just that! I spent my 20’s living and traveling abroad. I even had an opportunity to teach in Korea. To date I’ve visited 20 countries and counting.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Nova Luxe Travel?
Nova Luxe Travel is a full service travel design company. I’m passionate about helping adventurous travelers experience the world’s treasures through an itinerary that fits your needs and wishes.

Why should I use a travel advisor?
In the digital era, it’s easy to book travel yourself – but why would you want to? A great travel advisor takes a trip from ordinary to extraordinary! As your travel advisor, I can often secure special perks that you can’t get booking on your own, such as complimentary breakfast, resort credits, and room upgrades. And because part of my job involves spending plenty of time on the road researching hotels, scouting out the best restaurants and bars, and getting to know tour operators, you can feel good entrusting your most valuable asset to me–your time–because of my firsthand knowledge of destinations.
There is so much information out there! How do you know which hotels and tours to book?
As a member of a Virtuoso affiliated agency, I have the privilege of partnering with over 1,800 of the world’s best luxury hotels, cruise lines, tour operators, and more to offer my clients the best of the best. These travel partners are thoroughly vetted prior to being accepted into Virtuoso’s prestigious portfolio. Working with Virtuoso’s preferred partners allows me to create bespoke trips for clients that often include complimentary perks, VIP treatment, and unique travel experiences that aren’t always easy to find with a simple Google search.
Can you help me book just a flight?
Yes! I charge a $50 booking fee per ticket. I often have access to unpublished flights and can get you a better deal than you will find by yourself.
Why do you charge for your services?
Planning travel takes time, and I want to be able to dedicate the time that is necessary to plan the trip of your dreams. An investment for my services secures the time I need to research and book the lodging, flights, transportation, and excursions that all play a part in forming a trip of a lifetime.
