Hotel Review: Testing Out The #1 Resort In All Of BALI- The Five Star VICEROY Ubud…

To be #1 at anything, anywhere is no small feat. To be the number one ranked resort, in a country where tourism is their #1 industry, and resorts are everywhere- that's something special. On a recent trip to Bali we decided to see if the #1 ranked resort in Ubud, and a constant winner of Condé Nast Traveler awards lived up to the hype- and trust us there's LOTS of hype surrounding the Viceroy Ubud, so expectations were high...(Continue Reading)...

Review: A Glitzy Stay At The SLS BEVERLY HILLS In Los Angeles, California…

There we were, rooftop pool, mojito in hand watching the sun drift towards the ocean thinking "this place is everything".

Hotel Review: La Residence, Franschhoek, South Africa. The #1 Hotel In Africa…

La Residence is not just a place that treats you like a king, it's a destination that caters to actually kings, in a style only imaginable in a time long before. With celebrities such as Elton John, Robert Redford, Norah Jones and literal royalty making this unique property their home away from home in Franschhoek, the wine growing mountain region ofSouth Africa, you can certainly expect the red carpet. Of course, in order to deliver standards held by kings you need a general. In this case that is the command of General Manager Edward who takes personal interest in each and every guest in a way I can only affectionately describe as being Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel" manager in the real world...(Continue Reading)...
