“We are looking for innovative, designs that balance the needs of todays ever increasingly demanding and well travelled luxury adventure traveler, with the challenge of creating extraordinary guest experiences using sustainable solutions in remote and sensitive destinations.”

Owners Debra Fox and Chris Browne create lasting value  through the  artful and seamless merging of design, architecture and hospitality services in the luxury sector of the hospitality industry.

Fox Browne Creative offers direction and assistance for the development of luxury lodges and small hotels.  We have 50 years combined experience in luxury tourism and travel having designed, built, project managed, styled, opened and operated over 60 award winning lodges in some of the most remote parts of Africa and India..  Between us we have tackled and overcome just about every challenge imaginable and more importantly, we have loved every day creating beautiful guest experiences.

Our philosophy in both design and operations is very simple – it is all about the guests and what they will experience whilst staying there. We have a deep understanding of what works and what doesn’t when creating and operating a product for the luxury international traveller. There are many hundreds of extraordinary experiences across the world and the marketplace is extremely competitive and will only get tougher as the traveller becomes more demanding especially considering the prices they are paying. Today’s luxury traveller seeks truth, soul and meaning.
