Founded in 2014 by Marissa Anwar, Darling Escapes started as a travel inspiration Instagram account in hopes of inspiring women to travel more.

Fast forward 4 years, and today, the site has become a hub of information and tools for the loyal audience of millennial women who enjoy luxury travel and see the site as the go-to spot for travel information.

Darling Escapes is finding that piece of paradise in the middle of chaos. That little of bit of sunshine on an otherwise gray day. That lust to know something so intimately that it becomes like second skin. It’s that place that you can go that instantly feels like home- even if it’s the first time you’ve been there. It’s finding luxury not in the place, but in the interactions.

Darling Escapes is made up of multiple touchpoints that makes an experience whole. It has something for the foodie, design freak, luxury lover, an adventurer in all of us.

Darling Escapes is about exploring the hidden coffee shop in your neighborhood and the beachfront villa in an exotic locale. It values experience and enjoyment over crossing countries off your bucket list any day.
