Landi Burns, President

2021 Conde Nast Top Travel Specialist

Hi, I'm Landi Burns, a native of South Africa. My friends affectionately call me a "hospitality snob" because I have a love of the details that elevate special to unforgettable. I would describe myself as a connoisseur of the hidden and eclectic, combined with the persistence of a sassy perfectionist. It brings me great pleasure to delight you at every turn.

As you're able to work from anywhere, let me make your life as an intentional nomad hassle-free. Effortlessly connected via real-time messaging, we offer an experience of immediacy and ease that fits the needs of the on-the-go digital native. So you really can work. And relax. And immerse in experience.

When you join Emmy Blue, know that you can count on me. After crafting exclusive journeys for discerning clients, this year I was named a Top Travel Specialist by Conde Nast Traveler, a coveted distinction awarded to just 435 people worldwide. Under my management and direction, Turtle Island private island resort in Fiji was recognised as the top resort in the South Pacific and a Top 100 Hotel in the World by Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards. I similarly elevated Hopkins Bay Resort in Belize and several luxury wilderness safari lodges here in Africa. So I do know luxury!

I am truly looking forward to getting to know you, and delight you. Welcome to Emmy Blue.
