The Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills is one of the most highly-rated Andaz properties amongst luxury travellers that I know - everyone that has been there has nothing but good things to say about this property. Check out my review of this Category 6 property and find out what makes this one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in!
Bali is one of my favourite destinations and I have been there on multiple occasions - I tend to go back at least once a year but from time to time, I revisit this slice of paradise a lot more than I should (four times this year!). The cool kids typically go to Seminyak and I have tried to be part of this club by staying at the Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort early last year but I did not actually like it - I liked the resort but not so much waking up in Seminyak. It goes without saying that if you are a Hilton Honors Diamond member, the place you can stay in Bali is the Conrad Bali as it is located in the quieter side of the island - Nusa Dua. I have stayed here previously in a Suite as well as a Deluxe Ocean View Room (even though these are currently being refurbished) but I was rather eager to check out the brand new Pool Villas which are newly-built.
AccorHotels has just announced the opening of a brand new international hotel (first of its kind) in Chennai's largest and upcoming industrial and automobile belt – Sriperumbudur-Oragadam. The Mercure Chennai Sriperumbudur combines tradition and modernity to immerse guests in a South Indian experience that is home away from home. The property is located approximately 45 minutes drive away from Chennai International Airport and an hour’s drive from the historic monuments and beaches of Mahabalipuram.
On my latest trip to Japan where I checked out Japan Airlines' Business Class product for the first time, I decided to take up iShopChangi's offer to check out their duty-free e-store which has over 10,000 products from across 500 different brands and it allows me to purchase things like wines and spirits to high-end electronics from Bose and DJI. Instead of being able to just purchase these products prior to your flight, iShopChangi allows all eligible passengers to select from the e-commerce portal 30 days in advance and up to 18 hours before your flight. In fact, if you do not wish to lug your purchases with you throughout your trip, a convenient home delivery service can also be arranged for selected beauty and electronics purchases that are more than S$380.
The Oakwood Premier OUE Singapore is one of the latest luxury serviced apartment to open in Singapore. Following its official opening back in June 2017, the serviced apartment is open in OUE Downtown 1 along Shenton Way and it is home to 268 beautifully-appointed residences which include studios, one-bedroom as well as two-bedroom apartments. It is important to note that the Oakwood Premier OUE Singapore operates as a serviced apartment without a hotel license - what this means is that there is a minimum stay of seven nights. Check out my review of the One-bedroom Executive Apartment!
