REVIEW – Capella Bangkok

There is no question that Capella is not only one of the top hotels in Bangkok it is probably in the top 10 city hotels in the world.

REVIEW – Mandarin Oriental Barcelona

I don't think there's any doubting that this is the best hotel in Barcelona but the value proposition is a little hard to justify, particularly when rooms at the newly refurbished Intercontinental are 1/3 of the price or less.

REVIEW – Amanpuri (Phuket, Thailand)

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.

REVIEW – Patina Maldives

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 […]

REVIEW – Qantas: Business Class – Sydney to Melbourne (B767)

Overall, the experience with Qantas was mixed. The crew are very helpful and friendly. They have their wits about them and behave like competent, experienced adults. With some other airlines you get younger crews who may look better but you get the feeling that their ability to improvise, go the extra mile or even engage in decent conversation is somewhat limited.

REVIEW – Park Hyatt Melbourne

The Park Hyatt Melbourne has all the makings of a great hotel but the finishes need to be spotless in a Park Hyatt. Any mechanisms need to function without problems. Cables need to be tidied inside consoles or at least pinned or bundled in some way. Empty plates, towels and bottles need to be cleared in a timely fashion. Most of all, the staff need to be helpful and courteous.

REVIEW – Grand Hyatt Melbourne

Overall this was a decent stay but I'd still be tempted to look elsewhere when returning to Melbourne. The sports facilities are fantastic as is the location but the dark and noisy rooms detracted from the overall experience, as did the quality of the offerings in the club lounge. This is a city that seems to struggle with delivering true luxury. I can't help but feeling that it needs a Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton or MO to really raise the bar for the current crop of properties...

CITY GUIDE – Sights and food in Melbourne

Whilst Sydney is undeniably the more famous city, with the likes of Bondi beach and the Opera House drawing millions of visitors each year, ask most Australians and they'll tell you that Melbourne has it firmly beaten when it comes to bars, coffee shops and restaurants. With four days to explore the city I went all out to eat and drink my way through everything the city had to offer...
