While the Lotte and The Shilla are the most well-known hotels in the Seogwipo neighborhood in Jeju, the Kensington is a newer upscale resort that is certainly worth a try on your next visit to Jeju Island.
The process of trip reporting has always been a passion of mine and is one of main reasons that I started this blog in the first place. Here is my trip report Hall of Fame – a collection of the top 10 reviews of all-time as judged by your views.
If you’re looking to escape the relative hustle and bustle on the other Hawaiian islands, then Lanai is the perfect getaway. With a population of just 3,000 and another 1,000 or so guests on the island at any given time, you won’t find much competition for space on the beaches or the 30 miles of paved roads around the island.
I’ve had a blast being featured on BoardingArea this week, and as a final reminder before signing off, make sure to sign-up for the newsletter or follow me on social media to keep updated on all the latest posts. In case you missed it, here’s a recap of the top posts from the past week.
I was looking for a sit-on-the-beach-and-do-nothing kind of vibe, and as I did my research, Lanai looked like it would be the perfect match. The timing worked out well for my May trip, since the Larry Ellison-owned Four Seasons Lanai had just completed a vast refurbishment a few months earlier and was was offering a 4th night free as part of the re-opening.
Even though we’d be flying in and out of Zurich, we actually weren’t planning to spend much time there. So really we just needed an economical place to crash the night that we arrived, and the night prior to our return, and for both of those nights we settled on the Zurich Marriott.
Thanksgiving is my favorite time of the year to travel for a couple reasons. Firstly, while other holidays rotate around, there’s no guessing which days you’ll have off for Thanksgiving – it’s a 4-day weekend every single year. Secondly, while domestic travel during Thanksgiving week can be a nightmare, it’s the perfect time to travel internationally. As an added bonus, you can essentially bank on the fact that there will be a premium cabin sales each year which means that you can fly in style, most often to Europe, for a fraction of the normal price.
While I’m primarily a Hilton loyalist, Hyatts are a close second and the Park Hyatt brand in particular is my favorite within that group. And what if I told you that you could stay in a Park Hyatt for just $90 per night? Or how about a 1,200 square ft. suite for $175 per night? Welcome to the Park Hyatt Hyderabad.
I’ve heard this sentiment shared by many others and I’d tend to agree. Singapore is a frustrating hotel market. While there’s a nice mix of boutique and chain options, the prices are in no-man’s land. In other words, they aren’t expensive enough to feel like you’d get a good deal by using points, but they’re expensive enough that you’d consider using points rather than shelling out cash.
My wife and I aren’t really the types to plan our weekends well in advance, and actually prefer to make spontaneous, last-minute plans. So halfway through the week prior to the 3-day MLK weekend in January, we decided that it’d be fun to drive up to Mendocino for a couple nights. Despite having both lived in Northern California for essentially our entire lives, neither of us had been to Mendocino before, but we’d heard that the drive along the California coast was something that everyone needed to do at least once. Given that it was January, the weather wouldn’t be ideal, but we were fine with the gloom as long as there wasn’t constant rain.
