Having said that, I donít think the SL is in a...

I would return to Amantaka just to get in their river boat again as well as for the fascinating discussions with their cultural ambassador (not sure if he is still there). Rosewood looks amazing...

If I were going to Bali with teenagers, especially with active and curious teenagers, I would choose - despite it being a short hop away - Nihi Sumba.

In terms of crowds however, the problem is that you are very accurately describing pretty much any major seaside and photogenic destination. From Santorini to Positano to Tulum (and with a myriad of...

Forced seat change at the gate

For the fourth or fifth time in a row, BA has changed my assigned seat whilst at the gate.

Today I was flying to ATH in CE (and had my friends in the row in front me fwiw). My previously selected...

It has been a great summer so far with a long week stay at Bill & Coo in Mykonos, La Reserve in Paris and Monart in Co Wexford (my first destination spa - against all my protests).

I stayed at the Cavalieri on a work conference earlier in the year. It is dated (hard to put my finger on how but I would say it has a 60s kitsch vibe to it). The pool area is nice as is the rooftop...

It's a 2:30-3 hours drive. I don't think you will find much cheaper than that.

I've used the Russie for all my recent non-business stays in Rome. My time spent in a hotel in Rome is usually limited to just going to bed (it is Rome after all) but for anything that I've ever...

I think they had a conference with physicians and I assume I looked different to a sea of khaki trousers and blazers? I do think I was more casual than their average guest but generally speaking I...

Hi Jaykay

I wouldn't leave Amanzoe to go have another Greek beach holiday in Crete (or even Mykonos/Santorini). As it stands this is the best (by a long-shot) beach resort in Greece. If you want a...

I think it is highly common to combine Amanjiwo and Amankila (we did that exact trip + Singapore this past Christmas). It's a bit of schlep to do Amanpulo or Amankora in the same trip. Plus Bhutan is...

Beautiful grounds and rooms, great food (if...

This is very interesting.

We were there 2-3 years ago and found 101 to be underwhelming. I would rate it more than an "ok-ish" 4* boutique with quite a few amateurish errors (and didn't fall in...
