[Hotel Review] The Ritz Carlton, Jakarta, Pacific Place

Grabbed from official site

This trip happened due to my friend’s mileage run which was the perfect excuse to have another holiday. Yay.

Knowing our sole intention is to chill and not really wanting to mess with the infamous Jakarta traffic, we then decided that this spot is the best option we have to allow us to simply chillax. After all, it’s not everyday you come across a Ritz where all guests get club access – time for us to find out if this is a good thing!

[Hotel Review] Capri by Fraser China Square

Grabbed from official site

This stay is so postponed that I am kind of glad that I am finally checking this off.

The story is that during COVID era, I found a great rate which was eligible for their Best Rate Guarantee (BRG) which was honored and all ready to go. Until they closed to be a Stay Home Notice (SHN) facility. Then they re-opened after some time but they closed The Den (their interpretation of an Executive Lounge) which was what I wanted to experience for my stay. So I opted to reschedule only after The Den is re-opened (and kudos to the property for accommodating this allowance). Now, I am ready to stay after 1.5years postponement!

[Hotel Review] Vinpearl Landmark 81, Autograph Collection

Ah, a hotel in the clouds.

Ho Chi Minh was one of those cancelled-because-of-COVID plans and I have always remembered I need to check this city off my list. With soaring airfares all around, a $250ish return ticket on Singapore Airlines caught my eye and off I went for 4nights. This property also came highly recommended from a trusted friend and it was just in time to clock double elite nights so win win!

[Flight Review] SQ335 Paris (CDG) to Singapore (SIN) – Business

I was kind of excited for this last leg of my trip as it has been a while since I’ve been in this J cabin and I honestly miss the super flat and straight bedding (A380 why you so wrinkled).

[Hotel Review] Paris Marriott Opera Ambassador

Again, over-researching led me to this property for its offering of location, an Executive Lounge, and decently new rooms. After a somewhat underwhelming Eurostar experience, I couldn’t wait to settle in soonest to check out the city as I only had 2 full days in the city..

[Train Review] Eurostar London to Paris – Business Premier

My virgin Eurostar experience!

Their website says it all – it’s like pointy end of the train, with fast track immigration, lounge access, and 3-course meal with champagne on board. Why not.

[Hotel Review] St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London

Picked to move from Park Lane to this for a one-nighter because the property is so historic and honestly looks so impressive – just look at that architecture! But alas, it turned out to be memorable for all the wrong reasons.

[Hotel Review] Marriott London Park Lane

After much researching for places to stay in London, I landed on this property because the rooms look really nice, it has an Executive Lounge, located at a metro station plus Big Bus Tours stop is just around the corner.

My second time on SQ J in this aircraft and I still love very much the color tone of the cabin, because purple! The only part I was not looking forward to was the uncertainty about getting enough rest on this redeye as I didn’t feel rested on my first experience. Really not sure if it’s the cabin specific thingy (its weird, I know) but let’s see.
