This week co-founder of Quintessentially and founder of the South Kensington Club, Luca Del Bono, launched his latest venture ONDA, a platform that provides access to members clubs around the world.
For a monthly fee, members will have access to around 135 members-only venues, co-working spaces and exclusive health clubs in cities such as London, New York, Singapore and Buenos Aires, with the opportunity to connect with other members through purpose-driven projects.
Del Bono created this platform to provide like-minded people with greater accessibility to the world’s most exclusive venues. Interactivity and hospitality are at the heart of this venture as he endeavors to cultivate a community through engagement and shared experience.
Aimed at frequent travelers who have a passion for exploration and collaboration, the platform encompasses clubs across five continents, with recognition given to venues that excel through their facilities, environment, service and style. With ongoing expansion, the portfolio currently includes Devonshire Club and Mortimer House in London, Griffin Club in LA, Spring Place in New York City, Straits Clan in Singapore and Ulu Cliffhouse in Bali.
Commenting on his new venture, Del Bono says: “A sense of place and community is so often lost whilst traveling. Onda is the first platform of its kind to help adventurers access meaningful experiences wherever and whenever it’s most crucial for them. The platform was created for a new generation of global citizens who value freedom, purpose and connectivity over traditional hospitality and accommodation.”
Through the ONDA platform, members can discover new clubs, co-working spaces, retreats and private properties, as well as gain access to curated events and content. Local events are to include gallery visits, yoga classes, intimate dinners and lectures. An ONDA Merits program will then reward patrons who contribute to the clubs’ social initiatives. New members are invited through a referral-only model, with a monthly fee of $80.
