Known as one of the most beautiful locations in the world, the Maldives is about to step it up a notch in the world of luxury accommodations. Say goodbye to the traditional thatched roofs and hello to the new double story residences of Lux* North Male Atoll.

Heaven can wait – go to Sukhavati Spa instead

EARTH, Inspiration, Lifestyle, STAY, Travel

Fat bumblebees hum as they dip in and out of violet trumpet flowers languidly swaying over the verandah.  Tiny yellow-bellied warblers dart in between sucking nectar as they sing.  Sukhavati Ayurvedic Retreat and Spa is only 50 minutes from Bali’s international airport but stepping through its ornately carved wooden door is like entering the land of the lotus eaters, Homer’s mythical isle of honey-sweet fruit, which once tasted banishes any desire to leave.

Transformation at the Golden Door

Inspiration, Lifestyle, STAY, Travel

When you first become a vampire, you’re fixated on the small things. You look for hours at a pattern on a carpet, a stained glass window or even life itself, according to Ann Rice in The Vampire Lestat. This is the book I take with me for my week at Golden Door in NSW’s Hunter Valley. And whilst perhaps the Golden Door is not the perfect place for vampires: lack of night life, in bed by nine and up at sunrise, being there does transform you into a mindful mortal. You take time to watch nature such as the flight of the butterfly who mesmerised me with its golden wings that flitted and danced upwards to the clear sky and back to the magnolia tree with its white flowers and large brown leaves.

Adventure, EARTH, Inspiration, Lifestyle, Travel

New Year is a magical time. And it’s not just because of the fireworks.

From Brewery to Boutique Hotel

EARTH, Inspiration, Lifestyle, STAY, Travel, Uncategorized

When I was younger, I either wanted to be an actor or an archaeologist (Indiana Jones was regularly watched in my house). But over time that dream changed. Before I had realised I wanted to be a writer, I was fortunate enough to already be doing it professionally. One thing which has stuck with me from my childhood dreams is a love for the back story, for learning about the history of a place, a person or in this case a building, specifically the B2 Boutique Hotel and Spa in Zurich.

The Christmas Collection

EARTH, Festivals, Inspiration, SHOP, Travel

Every year, cities all over the world are decorated with lights, tinsel and trees bigger than houses. It’s a time of year that brings out smiles, a little silliness and of course, the Christmas markets. With Christmas music filling the air, the aroma of cinnamon and mulled wine and stalls bursting with unique gifts, it is impossible not to be filled with excitement at a Christmas market. No one does a Christmas market quite like the Europeans and with the start of market season upon us, here are the top Christmas markets to visit in Europe paired with a luxury hotel stay. After all, what is Christmas without a little indulgence?
