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.
On the whole, the Hilton Cairns was hard not to like. The location is just so great, the feel so relaxed, the staff so welcoming, it makes you feel like you're a million miles away from the 'real world'. The flipside to this is that some of the luxuries of city life are missing. On the whole though, I'm not complaining. I mean just look at Cairns
Another fantastic stay in one of my favourite city hotels in the world. The Conrad is serene, modern and beautiful. The lounge takes the experience up another notch and really cements this hotel's standing in the top tier of luxury properties.
I had been looking forward to this stay for a while.
The pictures of the pool, with huge floor to ceiling windows, opening onto a snowy garden, looked fantastic.
All reports and reviews that I had read indicated that this would be a cut above the usual airport hotel experience.
