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 […]

Round the World in First Class for $1,400 worth of US Airways miles, plus taxes. Just for fun I checked the cash price for these flights in the cheapest non-flexible First class fare buckets: $23,400.

REVIEW – British Airways : First Class – London to New York JFK

We were warmly greeted as we stepped aboard and directed to our seats. K was taken through a full tour of the features whilst I went about exploring by myself. On the face of it the BA First Class seat has the same basic design as the Sicma Aero Cirrus […]

The Andaz Wall Street has huge rooms, a free minibar and two hours of free (slightly horrific) booze every day.The staff are friendly and the rooms are cool and modern without emphasising style over substance...

REVIEW – American Airlines Flagship First Class Lounge – New York (JFK )

We asked our uber driver to pull up by the priority entrance. Once inside we saw lines of people snaking around in all directions. It wasn’t exactly clear where the first class area was but eventually we found it. A surly woman was guarding a rope and barked “can I […]
