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.

emirates first class lounge entrance lhr

REVIEW – The Lounges of LHR T3 – EK, CX and BA (September 2014)

We quickly checked in at the Qantas First Class area (which is also available to BA Club Europe passengers as well as OneWorld Emeralds) and the agent let us know that we were able to use not only the BA lounge but also the Emirates lounge, as a result of QFs partnership with Emirates. I wasn’t expecting this as previously this wasn’t the case for flights on QF metal.

REVIEW – British Airways : First Class – London to New York JFK

We were warmly greeted as we stepped aboard and directed to our seats. K was taken through a full tour of the features whilst I went about exploring by myself. On the face of it the BA First Class seat has the same basic design as the Sicma Aero Cirrus […]
