When I visited Tokyo back in May, I travelled back to Singapore on Japan Airlines - I have been flying JAL rather frequently (this was my fourth Business Class flight) this year since it costs a lot less to redeem my miles on it than on Singapore Airlines. More importantly, I have found the food served in Business Class on day flights to be comparatively better than Singapore Airlines (if you are picking the Japanese meal). Read about my Business Class experience on Japan Airlines from Tokyo back to Singapore!
The Six Senses Duxton is the first city property for Six Senses and it is also one of the most highly-anticipated hotels to open in Singapore this year. The Six Senses Duxton has been sustainably-restored by famous British designer, Anouska Hempel and it features a synthesis of Chinese, Malay and European design elements. The Six Senses Maxwell (which is just located a couple of minutes away on foot) is slated to open in October 2018 and guests staying in either property will be able to enjoy all the amenities across both hotels. Check out my review of the Duxton Duplex Suite here!
Hoshino Resorts will be unveiling a brand new KAI property in the Hakone district on 27 July 2018 and this will become the 15th property under the greater brand umbrella. The KAI Sengokuhara will become the second KAI brand in Hakone (the current KAI Hakone is situated along the Sukumo River), and it will feature private hot spring baths in each of its 16 guest rooms.
When I traveled from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo back in May, I spent a week at the Hyatt Regency Tokyo (which I really liked!) before moving over to the Hilton Tokyo which is located just across the road. Check out my review of the huge King Tower Suite Executive at the Hilton Tokyo where you will also get to enjoy evening cocktails and a great Japanese breakfast!
ShopBack is one of the best ways for a smart consumer (using the right credit cards) to get even smarter - it rewards you by sharing a proportion of incentive that they get through affiliate marketing. Airbnb is finally on the ShopBack platform and you will be rewarded with S$5 credit when you make an eligible booking on Airbnb via ShopBack. It is definitely worth remembering that you do not make the transaction on ShopBack as it simply redirects you to the actual site (Airbnb in this case) where you will make and complete the actual reservation.
