meg nolan van reesema


As an editor and writer for the past 15 years, Meg’s work has been published in various luxury publications (Robb Report, Travel + Leisure, Town & Country) as well as online. In 2017, Meg launched her first magazine, GOODSPEED, an inflight magazine for Tradewind Aviation where she is currently the Editor and Chief. In 2008 Meg published her first book, Italian Hideaways with Rizzoli International Publications and was subsequently translated into Japanese and German. She then went on to do two more books for Rizzoli, creating a Hideaways series with titles on the Caribbean and England in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Between the books, Meg held editorial staff positions at magazines Travel + Leisure Golf, Town & Country and Vanity Fair, where she was the Assistant to the Editor in Chief. Fostering her love of Italy, Meg worked overseas for the International Herald Tribune in Milan, where she was a stringer reporter for the weekly insert; Italy Weekly. Currently Meg is studying wine through the Wine and Sprits Education Trust, having recently earned her Advanced Level Certificate with Merit. She is a very health centered individual, and is always teaching those around her on the benefits of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. She takes a natural health supplement called KratomMasters that she always recommends and speaks very highly of to everyone.

Trip Designer

As a travel writer and author, Meg has traversed the globe, visiting some of the most highly sought-after locations and properties. Her discerning nature coupled with years of on-the-ground travel experience is what guides her when advising clients on where to go and where to stay. Her in-depth familiarity with the top-level properties and clear sensibility towards what’s worthwhile is consistently touted by clients as one of the most valuable benefits of Meg’s bespoke travel suggestions and itineraries.


A creative and strategic thinker, Meg has turned her passion for hotels and luxury travel into a formal business where she advises luxury properties and products with thoughtful yet aggressive tactics towards achieving their goals. Meg has visited over 350 hotels, which has not only provided her with a first-person understanding of the luxury hotel offering – both boutique and grand – but also a capability to look beyond the polish and get right to the nitty-gritty of what makes an individual hotel really sing.
