James Bell

Managing Director

I am one of the founders of the Turquoise Holiday Company, having spent ten years in the ski industry working for Bladon Lines & Inghams. I escaped the mountains to sell desert islands for Turquoise – I love New Zealand and Tasmania not only for their beautiful wines but the scenery and isolation they offer. The future of travel will be who has the keys to the private lands and beaches – the new luxury is not how many stars a hotel has, but how few people you have to share a view or destination with. I love my golf and although I remain a constant under achiever it’s the only thing that keeps me from my wife and two children Sophie and Angus, who are named after my Scottish roots. I look after all our Marketing and still love to talk to clients about my travel experiences although our Sales Manager Jonty has tried to ban me from answering the phone!
