Lufthansa First Class Terminal - bar

REVIEW – Lufthansa First Class Terminal – Frankfurt (FRA)

The best airport lounge in the world? What Lufthansa offers in Frankfurt is all the convenience of a private jet terminal with markedly superior facilities.

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.

Park Hyatt Maldives - Sunset Overwater Pool Villa

REVIEW – Park Hyatt Maldives

A lot of Maldivian resorts are like fast food: convenient, nicely packaged, initially satisfying but ultimately devoid of substance. The Park Hyatt is the antithesis to this.

REVIEW – Silvan Safari (Sabi Sands, SA)

My expectations were very high going into this and Silvan quite honestly smashed them. In terms of hard product, Silvan is in the very top tier of anything I've ever seen.

bangkok airways domestic lounge BKK

REVIEW – Bangkok Airways : Economy Class Lounge, Bangkok (BKK)

Overall, I think the Bangkok Airways Economy class lounge offering is fantastic. The decor and lighting are far superior to numerous LH and BA lounges that I've visited. From the moment you set foot through the door, you enter holiday mode and that's a great feeling.

REVIEW – Bangkok Airways : Economy Class – Bangkok to Koh Samui

One thing I like about flying Bangkok Airways is that they rarely use jet bridges. I love being out on the tarmac, close to the planes

REVIEW – Bangkok Airways : Blue Ribbon Business Class Lounge , Koh Samui [International Side]

As we were connecting from Koh Samui to Bangkok and onwards to LHR we cleared customs in Samui and were given purple CIQ stickers, to put on our tops. This meant that we were now considered to be international passengers and were therefore given access to the international departures section […]

USM PG lounge

REVIEW – Bangkok Airways : Blue Ribbon Lounge (Domestic), USM

The Bangkok Airways domestic lounge is located between gates 2 and 3 at Koh Samui airport. Access is open to pretty much anybody with a credit card but much like the international lounge, this facility was still not heaving with visitors as a result.
