“Our new partnership with The Langham takes shape around our collective focus on sustainability. In addition to pre-launching our exciting new recycled TUMI V4 with the ‘Celebrate the Perfect Journey’ staycation package, our collaboration aims to elevate eco-friendly experiences for when our customers will travel again,” said Adam Hershman, Vice President of TUMI, Asia Pacific and Middle East.

“This merging of the ecological aspirations for both The Langham and TUMI has been in the works for months and I am delighted that we are playing a part in inviting people to travel responsibly,” said Stefan Leser, Chief Executive Officer, Langham Hospitality Group.

“While we may not be able to venture far at the present time, there is still much to explore closer to home and I know many of our guests are now very mindful of being safe and environmentally conscious at the same time,” continued Stefan.

Guests who book the “Celebrate the Perfect Journey” staycation package will also receive a complimentary room upgrade at the selected The Langham hotels along with daily breakfast for two, an afternoon tea experience on the arrival day, a 20% off F&B and spa treatments, early check-in and late check-out privileges, and complimentary valet parking.
