Oberoi Amarvilas - swimming pool

REVIEW – Oberoi Amarvilas (Taj Mahal)

Amarvilas is a palatial hotel with an enviable location, moments away from the Taj Mahal. Indeed every room enjoys a view of India's most famous landmark...

Oberoi Delhi - 360° bar

REVIEW – Oberoi New Delhi

The Oberoi New Delhi is a property which we almost stumbled onto accidentally but ended up loving. The room hardware and public spaces are thoroughly modern and service is as good as any that I have encountered in any city hotel.

After a fantastic few hours spent enjoying the restaurant quality food and drink at the private First Class Terminal, we were guided through a private border post and had our bags loaded onto our Porsche transfer vehicle.

Aman Sveti Stefan

REVIEW – Aman Sveti Stefan (Montenegro)

There's nowhere on earth quite like Aman Sveti Stefan: a spectacular private island resort, sitting majestically in the sparkling waters of the Adriatic riviera.

Matetsi 72 1080x750 - REVIEW - Matetsi Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)

REVIEW – Matetsi Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)

Superb room hardware and the game viewing was as private and wild as you could possibly hope for. For the majority of our time on the game drives, it felt like we were at one with nature, totally disconnected from other human beings and the outside world.

sake bar ana business class lounge

REVIEW – ANA and United Lounges : Business Class, Tokyo Narita

After having my hand luggage scanned I was able to proceed to the regular departures area of NRT. I headed straight for the ANA Suite lounge, excited to find a comfy chair... and a cup of coffee.

ANA suite lounge NRT

REVIEW – ANA First Class Lounge : Tokyo NRT

The NH F lounge is pretty unremarkable. You are greeted and offered a drink as you enter. You are then left to help yourself to a limited buffet and an extensive bar.

ANA first class canapes

REVIEW – ANA : First Class – Tokyo Narita to London (B77W)

To summarise, ANA First Class is the best experience I've ever had on a plane. The mixture of service, food and bedding is, in my mind, unbeatable. On the ground the handling experience isn't as good as TG, the lounge isn't as good as the VS clubhouse and the service in OZ F blows every other airline away. Despite all of this I wouldn't hesitate in picking NH F as the overall best experience.

ANA Suite lounge HND

REVIEW – ANA Suite Lounge – Tokyo Haneda (HND) Gate 110

I set the bar of expectations low and this facility under delivered with aplomb. The lounge is a seething mass of people. The food offering is below the standard you'd expect of a 3 star hotel...
