ONDA enables inspiring individuals to discover and access private clubs around the world while connecting with each other through purpose-driven projects, from London to Singapore and Los Angeles to Buenos Aires
As people across the world mark the arrival of spring by planning their forthcoming holidays, Luca Del Bono, co-founder of British concierge group Quintessentially, is introducing ONDA (www.ondalife.com): a trusted single subscription platform that connects today’s generation of modern voyagers with the world’s most interesting members clubs, health clubs and co-working spaces.
Vetted, well-intentioned and well-spirited, ONDA offers its Patrons access to traditionally private clubs whilst connecting like-minded individuals with a shared ethos. With a current portfolio of 100 clubs across five continents and growing, ONDA recognises places that are truly special through their facilities, environment, style and service… the gems of the world. From London to Bali, Los Angeles to Stockholm, selected clubs benefit from new introductions to a vetted community of potential members whilst attracting interesting people and keeping the environment to a like-minded community.
“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,” says Founder, Luca Del Bono. “The platform was created for a new generation of global citizens who value freedom, purpose and connectivity over traditional hospitality and accommodation.
Patrons are invited through a referral-only model based on their purpose-driven spirit. Through the ONDA platform, members are able to discover and access selected clubs, co-working spaces, retreats, private properties, curated events and content. Engaging its community at its core, ONDA hosts local events such as gallery visits, yoga classes, intimate dinners and sustainability lectures for patrons. Moreover, as part of the ONDA Merits program and overall advocacy of social purpose, ONDA encourages and rewards patrons who contribute to the ONDA ecosystem by giving back to the clubs or by submitting social initiatives about which they are passionate, for support through the ONDA Fund.
The Membership Model
ONDA’s fee is £80/month (20% discount if paid annually and for members under 30). Patrons are offered six visits a year per members club and three visits a year per co-working space and health club, for further visits either one can join a specific club or pay a visitor fee.
