Oberoi Delhi - 360° bar

REVIEW – Oberoi New Delhi

The Oberoi New Delhi is a property which we almost stumbled onto accidentally but ended up loving. The room hardware and public spaces are thoroughly modern and service is as good as any that I have encountered in any city hotel.

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 – Dai-Ichi Seafort Hotel (Tokyo)

In a way airport and peripheral hotels are kind of sad places, they represent a lack of time, lost opportunity. I guess Dai-Ichi at least had nice views and an impressive lobby.

REVIEW – Park Hotel Tokyo

This was a surprisingly good stay. We obviously lucked out with the crazy room upgrade but honestly I wasn't expecting the public spaces to be so elegant and the service to be so great as well.

amrita hero 1 - REVIEW - Villa Amrita, Ubud (Bali)

REVIEW – Villa Amrita, Ubud (Bali)

I picked a villa with a very impressive website including a full 3D tour and drone videos of the villa's remote setting in the jungle. People don't just build holiday homes in Bali, the island seems to draw people who want to express themselves artistically.
