We are an owner run travel and events specialist, founded by Alex and James Wix. With over 25 years combined experience in the travel and hospitality industries, we have a passion for searching for inspiring experiences, interesting people, dramatic landscapes, idyllic beaches, cultural wonders, architectural marvels, unusual properties, event venues and gastronomic encounters.

Wix Squared have a host of travel and event experts specialising in the most exciting places worldwide. Our up to date knowledge and genuine enthusiasm comes from first-hand experience and not just internet searches and press releases. Knowing what lies behind slick photography and the posed smiles in brochures is priceless and it’s what sets us apart.

We will take the time to chat through what really matters to you in order to create a unique holiday, honeymoon, or event. Each of our guests is just that – our guest – and not just another sale.

THE FOUNDERS

Alex Wix (née Townsend)

Travel is in my blood. My parents lived and met in Asia and first introduced me to the Far East as a teenager and my love of the Orient has grown exponentially year on year. I adore the vibrancy of the colours, sights, smells and cuisine not to mention the people.

After leaving school I took every opportunity to travel, starting with half a year exploring East Africa before taking a degree in Business Management.

After another 6 months discovering South America I joined cazenove+loyd ultimately heading up their Asia+The Middle East team.

Whether on business or for the sheer joy of it, I have visited some 40 countries, developing invalauble first-hand knowledge and personal contacts in each destination.

James Wix

I  have lived “Hospitality” since I was a toddler, since my father was an hotelier.

I took my degree in International Hospitality Management, during which I had a year with the Four Seasons.

I then spent several years with the Admirable Crichton where I learnt to achieve the unachievable under the wing of the incomparable Johnny Roxburgh.

I have designed and executed events all over the world, gaining invaluable experience that will ensure that your party exceeds your expectations and dreams faultlessly and on budget.

With exciting far flung places becoming more accessible there are so many stunning locations that we can access in order to ensure that you and your guests have the perfect unique celebration whatever the occasion.

MOROCCOA surprise birthday party in the depth of the Agafay desert. Complete with all-night live entertainment, dinner for 200 people and surprise guest appearances.
MALDIVESAnywhere in the Maldives, with white sand, turquoise waters, incredible service and fresh seafood, you can’t beat it.
KYOTO, JAPAN For its beautiful architecture, traditional tea ceremonies and hidden local restaurants in the Geisha district. It is particularly stunning during the Autumn months when the gardens come into their own.
RAVEN, UKA 140 person wedding, aboard a heritage steamer, gliding through the beautiful scenery surrounding Lake Ullswater, in Cumbria’s Lake District.
RIAD FARNATCHI, MOROCCOAs owner of Riad Farnatchi in the heart of the Marrakech medina, I might be a little biased!
EVENTSA banquet in Buckingham Palace, a dinner party in a private house, a ball for a thousand guests in a tent and a discrete three day break for a FTSE 100 board. Most had strict budgets, some had no budget at all. What always unites them is the need to exceed the client’s expectations at every level.
