"Cynika Drake delivers excellence with a personal touch! I wanted my wife to feel like a Queen for our 10th Wedding Anniversary and Cynika Drake; President of Lavish Lifestyles Concierge exceeded my expectations. I am an experienced World Traveler and I will always cherish my wife’s smile when she saw the location of our dinner; a magnificently decorated romantic table for two on a Private beach; with the best Gourmet meal I have ever eaten from the top chef in the Dominican Republic. My wife said the night was the “Epitome of Love and Happiness!” I wanted the best for my wife and Cynika exceeded my expectations! I am an attorney and I was impressed by Cynika’s attention to every detail. She has a stream lined process to learn what her clients’ wants and desires are and then using her years of experience working with celebrity and corporate clients she designs package options that cater to different budgets and your personalized taste. I give Lavish Lifestyles Concierge "6 out of 5 Stars”. I will trust her for my professional and personal travel and event planning needs in the future." Attorney Terrence McRae (Ret. Army Officer)
"I never considered using a travel concierge, now I'm hooked after one trip with Lavish Lifestyles Concierge. LLC's President Cynika Drake walked me through the process without taking up a lot of time. In one 30min consultation via phone I was able to tell Cynika what I was looking for in my 3day/2night birthday weekend getaway. And all I can say is, Cynika delivered! I stayed at the San Juan Water & Beach Club which was literally on the beach. A fruit and cheese plate with designer water greeted me in my oceanfront room with a breathtaking view of the beach. There were also two handwritten welcome cards from the hotel and LLC's president Drake welcoming me to Puerto Rico and wishing me a happy birthday. Thanks to LLC I got the royal treatment and a preferred rate on one of the best rooms at the hotel. Amazing details, deals and perks.She nailed it! When I tell people I had an amazing time in Puerto Rico, it's an understatement. Thanks to Lavish Lifestyles Concierge I had the time of my life, celebrating my life! Best birthday weekend ever!" Nicole Mayo, Multimedia Journalist
"Creative, driven, team player, and an outside of the box thinker, are descriptions that come to mind when I think of Ms. Cynika Drake, founder of Lavish Lifestyles Concierge. LL worked with our team at FreshDirect to plan the groundbreaking ceremony for our new home at Harlem River Yards in the Bronx. The ceremony was a huge success. I highly recommend Cynika & LL for any size event. Thank you for a job well done." Larry S. Blackmon, VP of Public Affiars, FreshDirect
"Based on a co-worker’s referral, I contacted Lavish Lifestyles Concierge to coordinate my friend’s surprise 40th birthday dinner party. Since I currently live in Abu Dhabi, I was a little apprehensive to entrust this task to anyone I had not worked with before but Lavish Lifestyles did not disappoint. To calm my fears, Cynika maintained communication with me throughout the planning process. I received pictures of the venue, better than those on the website, as well as pictures of the table settings and other touches that were added to personalize the event space. Although there was an additional fee, I preferred the fresh flower arrangements prepared by Lavish Lifestyles rather than the artificial ones provided by the restaurant. I requested that a company representative remain throughout the event in order to address any concerns that arose so that the birthday girl could enjoy her guests. I am still saddened by not being able to attend this party but I am comforted by the fact that EVERY guest had a great time. During the following week, I received calls and emails thanking me for coordinating the event but complete credit must go to Lavish Lifestyles! I’m looking forward to working with them again, preferably at my own “Welcome Home” party this summer". LaTanya Youngblood, US resident living in Abu Dhabi, UAE
"Cynika planned an outstanding 40th birthday celebration for my boyfriend. From beginning to end, Cynika was professional, courteous and just an all around pleasure to work with. She made sure everything was seamless and that I did not have one worry. She helped to create beautiful memories for my boyfriend and I that will definitely last a lifetime". Marjani Hall
"Throughout the entire planning process and through the event itself Cynika was outstanding. The level of customer service I received was absolutely above and beyond. I felt more than comfortable in her hands and knew she would make sure my event was perfect. The experience would not have been the same had I worked with someone else, and I want you to know how truly lucky you are to have her on your team. I cannot say enough about her level of dedication and involvement with my event." - Rebecca Freedman
"Who would think you would need a Concierge Service. Well obviously we found out we did. We started out with the basic service to try it out. And in a matter of a month upgraded to Platinum! We have found Cynika and Lavish Lifestyles to be timely, informative, reactive, innovative and well downright indispensable!! Cynika is always there to listen, problem solve and create! What a rare gift.! From lavish trips to Italy and London to a quiet dinner for two in the neighborhood, Lavish is worth it's weight in gold and we couldn't live without her now!!" - Alimi Ballard (Actor CBS drama Numb3rs) and wife Dahn Ballard
"I can't begin to put into words how grateful I am to have Ms. Cynika Drake and her concierge service "Lavish Lifestyles" coordinating our "Feeling Fab Goes To NYC" trip during Fashion Week! The quality of service she provides is second to none! She arranged for Feeling Fab to stay at the new "Aloft Harlem Hotel" with a 33% discount! Who Does That?... Cynika Drake does, that's who!"
