We are an owner run travel and events specialist, founded by Alex and James Wix. With over 30 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.
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 for 10 years, ultimately heading up their Asia+The Middle East team for 5 years, before launching Wix Squared.
Whether on business or for the sheer joy of it, I have visited some 40 countries, developing invaluable first-hand knowledge and personal contacts in each destination. Condé Nast Traveler have also named me as one of their top travel specialists 2019-2023, with a focus on Morocco from where I am currently based.
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.
