Regular meetings with hoteliers are so important for keeping up to speed with the latest unique experiences on offer.
Last week I enjoyed lunch with @etiennedalancon GM @waldorfastoriamaldives Ithaafushi and @larafossat_hotelconsultant @artezzanrestaurantandbar Chester.
There is so much choice when it comes to high end luxury resorts in the Maldives but Ithaafushi by Waldorf Astoria really stands out for its huge villas, treetop concept restaurant 'Terra' and superb @caroljoylondon spa.
The Maldives are so popular right now - booking well in advance is essential!...
Great to catch up with @hotelletoinystbarth President Charles Walker and Theresa @highlifemarketing @chestergrosvenor last night.
Le Toiny St Barth oozes style and personal touches designed by the fabulous Bee @osborninteriors
Small, independently owned and managed, this is the place to go for a warm welcome, laid back luxury vibe and exceptional food.
With its new pool, spa, surf shack and restaurant down at the 'private' beach, days can be spent enjoying a morning surf followed by a massage and long lazy lunch before snoozing under the palapas - sounds pretty perfect to me!
St Barths is easier than you may think to get to from the UK with flights via Antigua, New York and Miami to name a few, using @flytradewind to hop over or why not stop over for a spot of shopping en route.
If you've done the bigger Caribbean islands, get in touch to try something different!...
Thought I'd watch this new @netflix series produced by @reesewitherspoon @hellosunshine and @zoesaldana since it starts in Florence and I just returned from there.
I didn't read up about it so didn't realised it was based on a book from a real life memoir. It starts out as a light hearted love story with beautiful Tuscan, Sicilian and LA scenes - right up my street....but soon develops into an emotional rollercoaster of a story beautifully written and acted.
What to do when your flight home is delayed by 14 HOURS due to Italian Air Strikes.....jump on a train to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa (you only need a couple hours, not much more to see!) and then pop over to Lucca for lunch.
Tuscan trailride on Debra the 22 year old Chesnut @oasyhotel Not the most exhilarating ride as think she's ready for retirement but absolutely beautiful scenery and great to be back in a saddle again, even if it was a Western!...
My beautiful room @lungarnocollection Hotel Lungarno directly overlooking the Arno River and famous Ponte Vecchio in Florence - thank you for your hospitality! We loved the fresh, nautical style and perfect location 👌...
Thank you @azurecollection for a fabulous evening with great food, wine and company @didsburyhouse_11didsburypark on Tuesday night.
It was great to catch up with Lisa @ljr_consultancy for @amillamaldives , Julie @holberry_associates for @nizucresort , @virginlimitededition & @baglionihotelsandresorts @baglioniresortmaldives
To top the evening off, I was delighted to be presented with an Outstanding Achievement Award for my support and business with @azurecollection since emerging from the Pandemic stronger than ever. I even won a stay at the stunning new @aubergeresorts
Etereo Mexico which I hope to twin with @nizucresort for a family holiday next year.
@azurecollection are a great tour operator with a small, specialist team I love working with.
I also really admire their commitment to support charities close to their hearts.
Congratulations on 20 years and here's to another 20!...
Having visited @experimentalbeachibiza a few months back, it was great to spend a night and day checking out @menorcaexperimental - with its artdeco house party style, low key tunes playing throughout the grounds and a more upbeat vibe in the evenings, this is a great spot for couples or friends to hang out for a few nights as a base to explore Menorca.
Torre Vella is the sister agritourismo to Santa Ponsa by @fontenillemenorca - surrounded by lush countryside with views and sunsets to die for, this is the perfect place to re-charge in peaceful surroundings....
