Overall it is hard to deny that Amanpuri is the best resort in Phuket. This is manifestly clear. However the leap in price between Amanpuri and its very close peers means that the resort will continue to work to prove itself....a fact for which I am deeply thankful.
A once in a lifetime opportunity to lock in remarkably low hotel rates all the way until August of next year (2023)!

Intro The Maldives is perhaps the country which is most synonymous with luxury travel. There are a huge number of hotels that charge north of $2,000 per night, so the addition of another into their midst would usually not be cause for a huge deal of fanfare. However when Patina […]
If you want a truly pristine island experience, enjoying all the natural wonders for which the Maldives is so justly famed, then few places will match the overall quality of experience at Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru.

After a couple of months of reading the Trip Reports forum on FlyerTalk.com, I slowly became aware that an itinerary involving multiple flights in international First Class, was no longer a lottery winning dream. This could actually be done. Not only that but with judicious routing and planning it could be done cheaply and awesomely, maximising all the little extras that make each airline unique.

Shortly after the seat belt signs were turned off, one of the 2 female FAs came over with menus
