The St Regis Nusa Dua is Fabulous as is Bali.

It is a 16 hour flight from the UK to Bali. Emirates now flies to Denpasar, so it could be a good idea to break up the journey and fly there via Dubai to reduce the jet lag. When describing Bali all I can say is “wow” what a beautiful place especially for it’s natural beauty…

How would I describe Dubai? “Simply Addictive”.

How would I describe Dubai: one word comes to mind “Simply addictive”. I have been going to Dubai now for over ten years and I still love it now as much I did when I first visited. Why? Because you know what to expect and it feels like home away from home.  It is a…

I fly American Airlines First Class very often for US domestic flights only. After seeing how bad the customer service is on board American Airline flights I now understand…

W Maldives – The most memorable experience of my life.

I have travelled most of the world and have always been put off going to the Maldives as I could not justify the extortionate prices to stay there. I always thought why would it be that great, what am I paying for, why is it so expensive, will the service even be good? So this…
