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 – EVA Air: Royal Laurel Business Class – London to Bangkok (B77W)

The food is good, they have fancy branded soft drinks, spirits and champagne, PJs, slippers and Rimowa amenity kits. Why don’t people flip out over EVA Air and mention them in the same hushed tones reserved for the likes of SQ ?

eva air lounge BKK

REVIEW – EVA Air and Thai Airways Business Class Lounges, Bangkok Airport

Overall, the Thai lounge was good but a little old fashioned and quiet. Given the fact that wifi access required messing around with access codes as well, the value proposition just didn't stack up. In future I'd just stay in the EVA Air lounge, especially given the limited time.
