Hotel Review: Four Seasons Hotel Singapore (Four Seasons Executive Suite) - Refurbished in 2018

The Four Seasons Hotel Singapore is home to one of the most impressive Chinese restaurants in Singapore and this is also where you will find the first L'Occitane Spa in Singapore. What is more important to take note however is that this luxurious property has only just recently completed a massive renovation of rooms and suites to reflect a brand new colour palette that is inspired and influenced by the nearby Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Check out my review of the Four Seasons Executive Suite here!

Hotel Review: Mandarin Oriental, Singapore (Club Marina Bay Room)

The Mandarin Oriental, Singapore is one of the first few luxury hotels that I have first experienced in Singapore - the hotel is one of the best properties in Singapore and it has one of the best swimming pools and club lounges in the Lion City. While I have previously stayed in a Club Marina Bay Room back in 2015, I was interested to check it out once again since The Oriental Club has been recently refurbished. Check out my latest review of the Club Marina Bay Room here at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental, Singapore with an impressive view!

Hotel Review: The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong (Club Deluxe Victoria Harbour Room) - World's Highest Hotel

When I visited Hong Kong in November (2016) last year, I traveled directly from Haneda on ANA's Boeing 787 Dreamliner (787-900) product in Business Class (check out my review of ANA's Business Class here!). While the hard product was very good, I can't help but to feel that the service on-board Singapore Airlines in Business Class was consistently better. In any case, I was pretty excited to check out the World's Highest Hotel, The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong after paying so much for a club room there. Check out my review of this luxurious property with sweeping views of the city.

Hotel Review: Shangri-La's Mactan Resort and Spa, Cebu (Ocean Wing Panorama Room)

Philippines is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes and beaches in the world. While Boracay and Palawan often come to minds of people who dream of perfect beach vacations, Cebu should be right there too - alongside delicious Cebuano cuisine like the lip-smacking lechon. During my visit to Cebu a number of months back, I stayed in a Ocean Wing Panorama Room at the Shangri-La's Mactan Resort and Spa, Cebu. Check out what makes this the best hotel in Cebu, Philippines!

Traditional Japanese Cuisine with a Contemporary Twist at Kazahana - Conrad Tokyo

The Conrad Tokyo is one of the most highly-rated hotels in the city of Tokyo - some of the rooms and suites overlooks the iconic Tokyo Bay and the Hamarikyu Gardens which is just stunning in the fall. When I visited Tokyo last month, I stayed in one of the Bay View Rooms with Executive Lounge access (from my Hilton HHonors Diamond Status) for two nights and during the stay, I took the opportunity to check out Kazahana (a Japanese restaurant within the Conrad Tokyo) which was easily one of the best meals that I have ever had in Tokyo.

Gourmet by Le Planteur in Yangon, Myanmar - Romantic and Luxurious French Restaurant by Inya Lake

I visited the city of Yangon in September 2016 and was blown away by the energy and striking contrast between old and new. The former capital of Myanmar has been opening up a lot more in recent years and it is always great to visit a city like that when it is still in its infancy stage of tourism development. After hearing so much about Le Planteur online and from people who have been there, I decided to check it out one afternoon myself to find out why Le Planteur is constantly talked-about as the best restaurant in Yangon.

Hotel Review: Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa (Villa du Jardin)

When I stayed in the Junior Suite of the Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa earlier this year, I fell in love with the place - in fact, I dare say it is my favourite hotel in Sentosa for a weekend escape in Singapore. I had the recent opportunity of running a company event at this beautiful property once more in the crème de la crème room type - the Villa du Jardin. Since I could not seem to find enough photos of the villa while I was researching the place, I made it a point to take a couple of photos so people will know what to expect if they are going to shell out over S$2,000 a night for this amazing space.
