Intercontinental JNB - Swimming Pool

REVIEW – Intercontinental JNB Airport

This is a hotel that is moments away from the airport. It ticks all of the items in my basics checklist and also has a full size gym and excellent restaurant. The room decor is a cut above most airport hotels globally, as is the service. Unless you have a layover of over 20 hours I can't imagine why you'd consider anywhere else in Joburg.

Amilla 88 - REVIEW - Amilla : Sunset Water Pool Villa

REVIEW – Amilla : Sunset Water Pool Villa

It's safe to say that this stay absolutely blew away all of my expectations. Amilla is a resort that delivered not just on the things that I thought I wanted it fulfilled knew needs that I didn't even know I had. The food was comfortably amongst the best we've ever encountered in the Maldives. The bed was also the biggest and the snorkelling the best I've ever encountered. The variety of accommodation options is fantastic and the combination of beach, treetop, bubble and overwater could keep you entertained for weeks.

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.

Conrad Koh Samui - Jarvis Marcos

TRIP REPORT – Cambodia and Thailand

I know they say that you shouldn't revisit your favourite places, they never live up to the memories. Here I'd built a trip around three return visits and still I was quietly confident that things wouldn't just turn out ok... they would turn out spectacularly

Park Hyatt Siem Reap - Pool

REVIEW – Park Hyatt Siem Reap (Park Executive Suite)

The service here was better than expected and the hardware in the room was excellent, even if our suite was a little lacking in daylight. Overall I would definitely recommend the Park Hyatt Siem Reap and would gladly stay here again...

Angkor Wat - Jarvis Marcos

GUIDE – Touring the Temples of Siem Reap

Being driven around in an air conditioned Lexus was great in and of itself but better still was the endless supply of icy cold towels and water and of course the friendly conversation from the man himself. I made all the arrangements via email, which he responded to very quickly.
