$1 Million year-long luxury travel package while working as a researcher —- can it still be called work if it’s fun?

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. But what if work meant travelling around the world to test the finer things in life, would that still be work? A luxury travel company called Luxury Travel Intelligence (LTI) has recently come up with a $1 million year-long travel package for the researcher who is going to be hired to review different properties and luxury offers.

According to

Unlike’s other offers which cater to a fraction of the population with the means to pony up $99,300 for a Valentine’s Day dinner and $38,500 for a Christmas pudding, this latest package is an extravagant, all-expenses-paid trip that includes stays in some of the newest and most exclusive hotels in Buenos Aires, Venice, Las Vegas and the Maldives.

The only catch? It won’t all be frolicking on tropical beaches and champagne-soaked fine dining meals. Not all the time anyway. Because the winning candidate will serve as a researcher for VeryFirstTo’s partner Luxury Travel Intelligence (LTI), providing reviews and updates on the latest innovations and services at the properties.

Although the luxury trip is open to all adults all over the globe, the applicant who qualifies gets it for free. According to the organizers, the very special researcher has to be ” discreet, discerning, eloquent, sociable,” and have “considerable travel passion, knowledge and experience, and a fine appreciation of food, culture and entertainment.”

The $1 million trip begins this summer but the applications for the post of researcher will only be open until the end of April. Some of the places listed for the year-long trip are:

Venice: Aman, Gritti Palace, Necker Island
Buenos Aires: Four Seasons
Miami: Metropolitan by Como, Fisher Island Club, Roberto Cavalli Restaurant
Las Vegas: Hakkasan, Fizz
Maldives: Velaa Private Island
Ski resorts like W Hotel in Verbier, L’Apogée in Courchevel, and The Chedi in Andermatt
