Hi, I’m Marie Olin from the UK. Welcome to my luxury travel blog! I love to travel, explore, write and I’ve circled the globe many times and still have many more places on my wish list.
I share my tips for luxury travel. Unlike many other luxury travel bloggers, I simply write about my everyday life – aware that I am very, very lucky to live this lifestyle.
I am writing a book and also write for various magazines around the world. I accept invitations for trips, events and so on, if they fit with my luxury brief. I only write about things I have experienced and can recommend to my readers. Luxury Travel Diva readers are like me, luxury world travellers who can AFFORD the luxury hotels and resorts!
WHAT I AM TRYING TO ACHIEVE:
“How may followers/page views do you have a month?” This is the question Travel Bloggers are asked all the time. The questions should be “How many people follow in your footsteps?”, “How many clients do you bring to the hotel/resort/travel company?”, “How many repeat invitations do you receive from PR’s and hotel groups?”.
Luxury travel bloggers promote very high end, expensive trips ….. not a £5 bottle of shampoo! Quality over quantity.
Media pack on request. I have a reach of 250,000 a month with the blog and social media including FB, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram and Flipboard and articles in publications around the world. 80,000 social media followers.
Bloggers are playing an increasingly important role in offering travel advice for their readers, encouraging them to explore the world and making the most of their valuable holiday time.
This blog provides reliable and trustworthy advice for my readers searching for information about destinations and places to stay, appealing to the thirty plus luxury market looking for luxury adventure and top class hotels, resorts and experiences.
I want to make the world a fun and interesting place for my readers! Travel safely, travel to countries that are not on the typical tourist trail, be adventurous and I want to give great advice and help people to explore emerging travel markets. My greatest reward is to receive messages from readers who visited somewhere because of my recommendation!
Bloggers can help promote countries, travel experiences, resorts and hotels and become a trusted and reliable resource for our followers. Encouraging people to take a trip out of high season and to emerging markets is very rewarding.
Top luxury travel bloggers probably have more experience of the luxury travel market than just about anyone else! We visit luxury resorts all the time.

If I write about something and say I like it, I really do like it and use it. Also, many of my trips are Press Trips, invitations or subsidised. I only accept invitations to places that I really like so my recommendations are always impartial.
