A PERSONAL NOTE
Fifteen years in the hotel business, reinforced by five years of Hotel school – the Prestigious Lesdiguières Hotel in Grenoble France, where they teach you the basics, made me a well diverse hotelier.
I worked at numerous properties in all the different services hotels provide: from folding sheets and peeling eggs for 300 guests in the kitchen to hosting a lavish banquet during the Cannes Film festival and checking in 120 guests in less than 1 hour during a winter storm. After 15 years in this industry, I went on to sell hotels to travel agents, and I had an incredible advantage: I knew the hotel business inside out and what could be done or not and therefore what it meant to provide exceptional service, meet clients’ needs and exceed their expectations. At last, with my years of experience from hotels around the world and my passion for the hotel industry, I created Voyage By Pascale (VBP).
In this collection, I have gathered what I believe are the best hotels in the Caribbean and Mexico. Over the past 27 years, I have traveled to many resorts and kept in my personal collection the ones that I love. I know that you too will love this collection of hotels, and will experience the true essence of luxury: elegance, style, an unlimited sense of service and of course, a little bit of "je ne sais quoi"!

THE TEAM
Pascale Gherardi
President
646-201-9372
Born in November 19xx in Grenoble, France, Pascale, one of four siblings was always the determined one. From a young age, she exhibited great determination whether it was her years mastering the piano at the conservatory or later assisting the prestigious hotel school, Lesdiguieres. Pascale always seemed to have a plan and clear vision of her next steps.  In the mid 90's, Pascale decides on spending a Summer in St. Barth. That Summer turned into a year and that year turned into a long-lasting love affair with that vibrant island. She sets her eyes on the land of opportunities, where she landed in Rhode Island and eventually worked her way south-bound to NY. With the planets and stars aligned, here is when and where Pascale begins a very important chapter of her life.  She begins to cultivate her unparalleled relationships with industry partners and also gains the reputation of being persistent and tenacious, most often fighting for a travel agent’s client's needs.  Next to the birth of her daughter Madison, the creation of Voyage by Pascale (her second baby) in 2007 stands as one of her most significant accomplishments.
Family has always been of paramount importance for Pascale. She is very close to her family who still reside in France and Pascale's extended family is her team. The VBP family is tight. They are present at each other's milestones- weddings, births, and unfortunate life circumstances - and they all share the passion for travel and exceptional service.
This Scorpion is strong, intense, and loves a good fight (and usually wins it). A side you may not know of Pascale is that she has a bit of a dare devil trait - she has jumped out of a plane solo, has a motorcycle license, has scuba dived 40 meters and has changed hair color more than 15 times. You can call this Westchester resident a work-a-holic but she has recently discovered a love for painting and Pilates. Earlier this year, Pascale’s life took another change with the arrival of Benji, her and Madi’s rescue pup. Life is good!
Amy St. Just-Pineda
Operations Manager
646-201-9372
Amy St. Just-Pineda joined forces with former colleague Pascale in 2009 and has been her “right hand woman” ever since. As a graduate from The Hospitality College at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, she received hands-on training in all facets of the hospitality industry. She started her career over 20 years ago at RIHGA Royal Hotel in New York City, where she maintained positions as Front Office Manager, Concierge, Night Manager and VIP Client Manager. Amy’s next venture was as Group Sales Coordinator at Preferred Hotels & Resorts. After her time at Preferred, Amy began her years in the luxury wholesale side where she & Pascale met and worked together for 12 years. Amy is a true Virgo- honest, super-organized and a true friend. With her expertise and commitment to perfection, Amy ensures that VBP is always running smoothly. What you may not know about Amy is that she is a fierce salsa dancer (has been dancing since in the womb like every true Puerto Rican), loves a good romance book, and the bond with her family is everything to her. She currently resides in Westchester County with her husband & 2 beautiful daughters.
Angela Gerou
Concierge
646-452-2773
Angela Gerou, a native Tennessean, joined Voyage by Pascale in 2013 as the company’s very first Luxury Travel Consultant.  With an extensive hospitality background including Reservations Management, Front Office, Concierge, Room Inventory and Groups, she was excited to have a challenging opportunity to be on the “other side” of the industry. After having worked for the (Los Angeles-based) Viceroy Hotel Group in various capacities for 10 years, it was Angela’s close relationship with Pascale that led her to such a big change, as the two were in touch almost daily while she was the Reservations Manager for Viceroy Anguilla. As both women are Scorpios, their intuitive and ambitious nature led them to make a big decision without much hesitation. Pascale was very impressed with her from the beginning and knew that with her great sense of service and ethics, she would be a tremendous asset to the company.   Angela’s passion for traveling was inspired by a character named “Uncle Traveling Matt” who was in a television show created by Jim Henson. When she was in kindergarten, her teacher asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, to which she answered, “I want to travel all over the world.” Her teacher laughed and said she couldn’t make a living by doing that, but it turns out Angela proved her wrong, and is incredibly grateful for the many destinations she’s been able to visit throughout the last 15 years of her career.  Despite that, she’s a true California girl at heart, as her favorite place will always be Big Sur, CA. She has since returned to Tennessee so that she can be closer to her family again, and now works remotely for VBP from there. She lives with her husband, and their 13 year old Yorkie, Jazz. Angela also serves as our exclusive holistic healer with her expertise in essential oils.
Claire Arrindell
Director of Sales & Marketing
646-201-9376
A native New Yorker, Claire Arrindell was first introduced to travel when spending her summers with her extended family as a young girl in the Dominican Republic. After high school, she studied Hotel and Restaurant Management at CUNY’s New York City Technical College where her favorite courses were of the culinary realm. She ended up taking the hotel route working at different luxury NYC properties in roles in the front and back of the house. Claire’s path crossed with Pascale and Amy, and later with Donna, when they worked together at the same luxury wholesale company. Looking for a change after 10 years, Claire went back to the hotel side working for different Caribbean resorts but it was only a matter of time when she would rejoin forces with Pascale, this time at VBP. A deep-thinker, independent and with a sarcastic sense of humor, this Aquarian is most happy when in her kitchen creating innovative meals for loved ones. Claire, who lives in Riverdale, NY, also enjoys snowy winter days, channeling Ms. Streisand or Ms. Carey at karaoke with friends and most of all, spending time with her family. She also has an alter-ego named Lola who LOVES to dance on tables…wearing a boa.
Sasha Nosonowitz
Luxury Travel Consultant
646-201-9372
The latest addition to the VBP team, Sasha is our resident drama queen- no, really! Sasha studied musical theater at the American Musical & Dramatic Academy in NYC. After many auditions and waiting on tables (sounds like a cliche but...), Sasha switched lanes and started her career focusing on her other passion- travel. A travel agent in the making, Sasha loved to plan her family vacations every year. In May 2012, she starts to work for Liberty Travel in Westchester and after 2 years is promoted to Assistant Team Leader. As her professional travel experience grew, so did her aspiration towards the luxury market. This is when VBP comes into her life! Sasha lives in Mamaroneck, NY with her soon-to-be husband and their 2 cats. During her downtime, Sasha enjoys stand-up comedy, live music, food & wine festivals and the NY Giants. Sasha also does a spot on impersonation of Brittany Spears and Christina Aguilera which has us in cracking up every time.
