The Epitome of Cross Country Comfort

Black Tomato are award-winning creators of unique, perfectly-tailored travel experiences. This team has made it their mission to redefine the luxury travel experience, by bringing insight and inspiration to every bespoke itinerary they plan.

Black Tomato has recently launched their latest scheme of luxury road trips across America, in partnership with Auberge Resorts Collection and Mercedes-Benz, guaranteeing elevated pit stops and access to awesome vehicles. 

Thanks to Black Tomato’s partnership with Mercedes-Benz, travellers will have access to the 2021 S-Class sedan and the ultra-luxe GLS600 Maybach.

East Coast itineraries will offer a selection of the newest models from the C-class, E-class, GLC, GLE and GLS lines, while West Coast itineraries will feature the E450 Coupe, GLE 450 SUV, Maybach S560 and Maybach GLS600 “to ride in superior comfort and luxury guided and directed by Mercedes-Benz artificial intelligence, MBUX”. They are certainly providing the adventure of travel in the country’s comfortable accommodations both on the road and off.

The five brand new US road trips include the following destinations: 

The artistically inclined will gravitate towards the Texas & New Mexico itinerary that starts with a stay at the sprawling Commodore Perry Estate in Austin. This ten-night trip includes a hands-on graffiti experience with a street artist and a Victorian jewellery design workshop before driving west to the artistic enclave of Marfa. Things wind down amidst southwestern heritage at Bishop’s Lodge in Santa Fe. Exclusive access to Georgia O’Keeffe’s residence is also on the agenda.

Package starts from US$8,950 per person, including ten nights’ accommodation.

A trip to New England spans 12 nights along the Eastern seaboard, both ocean air and old-timey traditions dominating this next itinerary. A stay at the idyllic Mayflower Inn & Spa and an immersive pottery experience set the tone for what’s to follow: checking into the Vanderbilt in Newport, taking a lesson on the art of “scrimshaw” (bone carving), and touring Newport Mansions with an interiors docent. Lobster fishing and eating freshly dug clams are also both on the menu.

Package starts from US$17,250 including twelve nights’ accommodation, a private charter from Sanford to Nantucket.

The Utah, Colorado and New Mexico road trip is adventurous in nature, featuring a foraging experience, a 4×4 adventure in the Telluride backcountry, and an open-air art class. But there’s also room for leisurely pursuits. Farm-to-table cuisine and a chocolate journey inspired by colonial recipes provide sustenance, while the likes of Madeline Hotel & Residences and the Lodge at Blue Sky offer shelter.

Package starts from $10,950 including ten nights’ accommodation.

The Connecticut, Maryland and Virginia journey weaves through the coastlines and mountains of the East Coast, beginning at the aforementioned Mayflower Inn & Spa in Connecticut and heading south to Chesapeake Bay for an oystering experience and walking tour of St Michaels.

Rounding off this eight-night trip is a stint of wilderness at a luxury resort, where an RTV trail riding expedition in the Blue Ridge Mountains caters to one’s inner explorer. And because even the most eager explorer is rightfully risk-averse, every booking is refundable if cancelled up to 30 days before departure.

Package starts from US$7,750 per person including eight nights’ accommodation.

This year’s multi-destination routes are designed to showcase the country’s more unexpected corners, with road-trippers offered the option of taking a private charter flight with Surf Air for added ease.

Craig Reid, president and chief executive officer for Auberge Resorts Collection, says: “Following a year of limited travel, multi-stop trips allow guests to discover more of the beauty that this country has to offer. With the expertise of Black Tomato, we’ve conjured up some of the most exquisite stateside journeys, so guests can experience multiple destinations in one trip, all while staying at our award-winning Auberge properties.
