The loss of my Accor Platinum was not an enough deterrent for me to try this much-delayed property. Railway junction theme and 19th century roots of luxury travel here I come!Continue reading “[Hotel Review] Pullman Singapore Hill Street”
This was an impromptu staycay due to my expiring D$ and I figured why not since the refurbished rooms looks really great on sites I’ve visited. So off I went to have another whirlwind stay! I last visited the property in 2022 and it has since been refurbished extensively including some of the F&B so I was keen to float by these spots too to see what the exciting renovations are about.Continue reading “[Hotel Review] Pan Pacific Singapore – Deluxe Room”
This trip came up but of course due to the Cathy Pacific giveaway which happened earlier this year, and I decided to try this RC for its amazing views (and eye watering prices). This stay comes after a fantastic stay at RC Tokyo just last month and I was super excited to be able to make a comparison between these two similarly highly-raved about properties.Continue reading “[Hotel Review] The Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong”
This all came about because of the Cathay Pacific free ticket promotion back in early March 2023. With economy tickets booked ready in hand and another cash ticket to bring my mum along, here I go to experience as far as I remember my first CX experience.
I decided to combine my depart + return experience in one post as both were similar.Continue reading “[Flight Review] Cathy Pacific CX658 Singapore – Hong Kong / CX657 Hong Kong – Singapore (Economy)”
Ah the because-last-night splurge of my trip!
After so many days of running around for work and clocking too many steps for leisure, I figured I deserved a splurge for my last night in Tokyo. To be honest, it was between this and EDITION but I picked this in the end because CLUB LOUNGE.Continue reading “[Hotel Review] The Ritz Carlton, Tokyo”
My first Indigo experience!
It was timely that I saw this new IHG property opening close to my stay dates so booked this to get some Shibuya shopping done and grab more Diamond breakfasts while I can!Continue reading “[Hotel Review] Hotel Indigo Tokyo Shibuya”
New city, new-ish property!
Decided to hop over to Yokohama from Tokyo for 2nights since I haven’t been here before – and it helps that this property is new in the city and I was excited to experience the first club lounge of my trip!Continue reading “[Hotel Review] The Westin Yokohama”
I’m usually not a IHG person but I had my Ambassador free weekend night to burn and after much researching, I realized that this spot makes for quite a good base to kickstart the leisure part of my trip. So might as well make full use of my IHG Diamond while it lasts?Continue reading “[Hotel Review] The Strings by Intercontinental Tokyo”
This was the company’s choice of accommodation for the business trip so that was that. So I was quite relieved to see that pics in most reviews showed decently modern rooms as well as the gorgeous views which I hope I would get. This property is under the IPrefer programme which I am a member but as far as I know, corporate bookings usually do not accord member benefits anyway.Continue reading “[Hotel Review] The Prince Park Tower Tokyo”
It has taken me this long to try this property.
While I had my eyes on this spot pre-COVID, prices were hovering around SGD300+ which was too expensive for Batam. So COVID came and went (or still around) and the idea for a short family trip came up, I decided to spring for this as the prices had gone down and I would be able to utilize my Suite Night Awards (SNA) which otherwise would have expired end 2023.Continue reading “[Hotel Review] Batam Marriott Habour Bay”
