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.

REVIEW – InterContinental Maldives

The resort with the lighthouse: Bookable for only $600 a night using IHG points, is the InterContinental Maldives truly a luxury property? In some ways yes...

My first encounter with a Belmond property was a fantastic experience on the whole. 'Old school' elegance, paired with friendly service and a great location.

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.

The Singapore Four – 77WN J, A380 J, 77W F and 380 Suites – Fairmont SIN Suite

My plan was to maintain my body clock on Asian time, whilst living and working in London. I would be visiting the gym at 4am and getting to sleep by 7pm (work permitting). Having completed my RTW I was going to fly back to Asia

sq a380 j - REVIEW - Singapore Airlines : Business Class - Singapore to Frankfurt (A380)

REVIEW – Singapore Airlines : Business Class – Singapore to Frankfurt (A380)

Singapore Business on the A380 is one of the very best products in the sky. The whalejet has huge side bins, wide aisles, less engine noise and notably better air quality than the 77W. If you aren't in the mini-cabin on the 77W I'm sure you can make an argument for this being the better product.

OneWorld F Around the World / The Singapore Four : Conclusion (April 2015)

This trip was awesome. Super awesome. I went one and a half times around the world in the space of 2 weeks. I snowboarded in Japan, hung out by the pool in LA, went to Katz's deli in NY, drank at a rooftop bar in Singapore, hung out in the world's tallest Park Hyatt in Shanghai and tried four different SQ premium cabins.

A Tale of Two Islands – SQ Suites, TG F/J – Conrad Koh Samui and Wreck Diving

It turned out that we could connect onward to MNL from SIN in First Class with a very comfortable connection time, at no extra mileage cost. This is the longest free First Class connection route ex-Europe on Singapore Air.
