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.

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...

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.

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.

REVIEW – Bangkok Airways : Economy Class – Bangkok to Koh Samui

One thing I like about flying Bangkok Airways is that they rarely use jet bridges. I love being out on the tarmac, close to the planes

REVIEW – Conrad Koh Samui – Part 1

After an hour long ride through some pitch black roads (including an immensely steep final climb, once on the grounds of the property itself) we finally arrived at the lobby, of one of the crown jewels in the Hilton property portfolio.

REVIEW – Conrad Koh Samui – Part 2

Aside from the obviously spectacular hardware, what really shines through here is the service. Everybody greets you with a Wai and a smile.
