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.

Park Hyatt Maldives - Sunset Overwater Pool Villa

REVIEW – Park Hyatt Maldives

A lot of Maldivian resorts are like fast food: convenient, nicely packaged, initially satisfying but ultimately devoid of substance. The Park Hyatt is the antithesis to this.

REVIEW – Plaza Premium : Arrivals Lounge, LHR T2

In no time at all I found myself at LHR T2. This did not happen by accident. I had planned to arrive on LH as I wanted to check out the recently opened Plaza Premium Arrivals lounge at the *A terminal. It is the only Priority Pass arrivals lounge that I know of anywhere.
