Grandiose. The Fairmont in Singapore is big, to state the obvious. This is apparent from the moment the bellhop unloads your bags to when the doorman ushers you inside the high ceilinged and confidently decorated foyer. It’s a true hotel, a hotel in the traditional sense of the word, and the Fairmont does it well, with the Singapore branch having undergone an impressive renovation where no expense has been spared…

From the moment you drive through the gates of Huka lodge you are aware that you are in an extremely unique and special place in the world. The grounds are immaculate. The level of luxury that is instantly apparent is indescribable. Huka Lodge is not your run-of-the-mill five star experience (in any 5 star experience can be call run of the mill). This nook of New Zealand is unimaginably serene and tranquil. It’s like a secret garden reserved just for you and your guests, and no one would ever know that it was there amongst the tourist traps of Taupo and its famous lake…

Shamballa Residence is one of three villas in Ubud owned by the lovely couple, Atsu and Wendy. They make a good impression in the booking stages, and this only gets better on arriving at the villa.

Two words: tropical paradise. Qunci Villas is one of the best-rated hotels in Lombok and there are a number of reasons for this: the grounds are gorgeous, the pool is to die for and the staff make everything so damn easy for you. First impressions can be simplified to lots of lush greenery, inviting water, a warm greeting and lovely rooms…what more can you ask for…

Arriving at Hamilton Island Airport, it’s not hard to grasp the fact that you are about to begin a luxury experience. The qualia team greet us by offering cold towel and a bottle of cold water because, well you’re in Hamilton Island so you’re likely already feeling a little warm. The qualia staff take the liberty of collecting your baggage for you at the airport so you don’t have to wait, and delivering it to your made-up room in a secret and swift manner before you even realise what has happened…
