REVIEW – Emirates Lounge – Dubai (DXB) – C Concourse

They serve free flowing £500 bottles of First Growth Bordeaux in this lounge. What else do you really need to know?

Nuriss – A Luxury PCR test in London

PCR Testing is an inevitability of the current travel environment and if you're UK based it certainly seems that this will be a requirement for some time to come. With PCR tests ranging in price from £100 to £200 or even more, I've been curious to try various options at the lower end of the pricing spectrum to see how they compare...

Emirates A380 First Class cabin

REVIEW – Emirates : First Class – A380 – London (LGW) to Dubai (DXB)

Expectations can be an odd thing. Emirates First Class is an internationally renowned product, even outside of the frequent flyer community people are likely to have heard of the shower suites and the on board lounge bar (which I had no time to visit on this short flight). This is a cabin which has a halo effect over the entire Emirates brand, meaning that people buy Economy seats on Emirates, on the basis of how good their First Class is...

Emirates Gatwick Lounge seating

REVIEW – Emirates Lounge – London (LGW)

This isn't the kind of place the you turn up early to experience, although outstation lounges very rarely are. The food is the only truly premium aspect of Emirates' Gatwick lounge offering. What's strange is how easily some glaring errors could be fixed to radically transform the experience...

constance moofushi 148 1080x750 - REVIEW - Constance Moofushi : Water Villa

REVIEW – Constance Moofushi : Water Villa

There are a lot of things to like about Constance Moofushi. The reef and lagoon are truly spectacular. If you're into diving, the Ari Atoll also has some of the very best dive sites on earth. The vegetation is lush and dense and the sand quality is fantastic too. This is not a resort which is lacking in natural charm.

maafushivaru 134 1080x750 - REVIEW - Lti Maafushivaru : Water Pool Villa

REVIEW – Lti Maafushivaru : Water Pool Villa

Sometimes you really look forward to an experience and it lets you down. The weight of expectations just can't live up to the hype. Then you have an experience like this. I honestly wasn't expecting a whole hell of a lot from Lti Maafushivaru and instead it delivered one of my most fantastic hotel stays in recent memory...

Stratajet 37 - Massive Amex UK retention offer!

Massive Amex UK retention offer!

Amex just offered me 50,000 Membership rewards points to keep my Platinum card. I’ve always been a huge advocate of the benefits of owning an Amex Platinum Card. Between the travel insurance, concierge service and special offers I always easily make my annual £585 fee back. However there’s no doubting […]

REVIEW – Andaz West Hollywood (and some L.A. sights)

The Andaz was a great hotel for our purposes, in a city the size of LA location is really important and for me The Strip is where it's at. Next time though, I might spring for the Chateau...

swiss 777 throne seat

REVIEW – SWISS : Business Class – Zurich to Los Angeles LAX (B777)

There is a lot to like about SWISS business class but there are more than enough negatives to place this in the second tier of business class products behind the likes of Qatar, Etihad and Singapore Airlines. If the cabin was all throne seats...

star alliance lounge LAX 21 1080x750 - REVIEW - Star Alliance Lounge, LAX - TBIT

REVIEW – Star Alliance Lounge, LAX – TBIT

The food and drink are excellent, the decor is very elegant and modern, power sockets are freely available and there's an outdoor terrace from which to enjoy the sunshine and view some of the most diverse traffic of any airport in the world.   THIS LOUNGE IS AWESOME.

air canada a320 first class

REVIEW – Air Canada : Business Class – Los Angeles to Vancouver (A320)

The seat was large and comfortable and featured both power and entertainment. The crew were polite, friendly and efficient (if a little lacking in oenoligical knowledge). The food was plentiful, healthy and delicious with a decent selection of drinks to accompany it.   If BA Club Europe was anything like this I wouldn't hesitate to pay the premium every time I fly!
