It's true, there is a great gin collection at the Hyatt Regency London, The Churchill - but what I didn't know existed was their Winter Garden. It is absolutely lovely and I spent all the time I could there - and it was freezing. Whilst, I do not love 'reused blankets', I gladly accepted the hot water bottle, a lovely touch. And service was impeccable.

If you're a fetishist for fine furnishings in the heart of Seminyak, Katamama is an oasis of thoughtful, sensitive interior design which is as thought provoking and soul uplifting as it is a getaway for good times.

The W Maldives is located in the North Atoll on a small island, and the 78-room resort is only accessible by seaplane, which can take between 25-45 minutes (depending if it makes other stops along the way). The very secluded and private beach villas come with a private pool and direct beach access. Perks included post its in our bathroom inviting us for a free 2nd drink at the bar. There are many 'Sweet Spots' by our room, where you could help yourself to soft drinks, ice cream water, and…

A girls trip is always a special occasion - and every special occasion deserves a fab hotel! The Bahia Hotel & Beach Club were our gracious hosts for our stay - and they did change my mind about Mexico! Spending a lazy afternoon at the pool indulging in poolside massages, and great cocktails was absolutely lovely!

After a few disappointing trips to Mexico, I think Los Cabos and the fab Bahia Hotel Los Cabos, Mexico may make me change my mind.

I wasn't sure what to expect about Seminyak, Bali, but it did grow on us after the second day. Despite having booked our plane tickets months before, I kind of left it to the last-minute to actually where to go and stay. I had asked my readers on Facebook and a plan was set. The Oberoi was the hotel we felt was the right choice for us, located in the centre of Seminyak (but once you enter the hotel, you feel like you are miles away).

Hotel Valverde, Lisbon, Portugal is small in size, but great things come sometimes in small packages. Its interior design is part of the experience, with dark walls, low lighting, gorgeous wallpaper and carpets, it's very intimate. Each room is completely different to the other, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I loved the colour scheme and the furniture - everything felt very Portuguese in a way, yet super modern. My room faced the main street and I couldn't hear any noise.

'Made by artisans' is the Katamama's tagline, but it's also their purposeful philosophy, communicated through unrivaled attention to detail. Those anjat woven orchard-wine bags and hats for guests to borrow have been meticulously hand-loomed from strands of orchard vine in Kalimantan. Ceramics have been individually crafted and the pottery is a world away from anything mass produced. Tableware and bathroom accessories have been designed with Jenggala Keramik and made exclusively for the…

The Four Seasons London at Park Lane is one of my favourite hotels in London - so much so, it is where I have my London office. Well, not really - what I mean by this, is that it is the place that I choose to have business meetings and the occasional after-work cocktail.

I was looking for ideas for where to stay on our annual summer trip to the south of Portugal, and there were few openings, so I asked those who know best: my readers. With 40+ individual recommendations from a post on my Facebook post, there was a clear candidate: São Lourenço do Barrocal, located near the beautiful historic village of Monsaraz in Alentejo, Portugal. Set on a huge property, it only has 40 rooms. There are plenty of activities for families and couples and plenty of…

Whilst Vancouver, which I got to visit and love, is on top of everyone's list, there is another place that has always been on mine: Victoria, the capital of British Columbia. My husband had a conference in Seattle and I decided to come with and leave him 'conferencing' whilst I played with the girls in Canada.

I went stateside and explored my first Belmond property in the Americas: Belmond El Encanto, located in Santa Barbara, California. Like most Belmond hotels, El Encanto is no standard hotel - it has something very unique about it.

Like most Belmond hotels, El Encanto is no standard hotel - it has something very unique about it. Although, the infinity pool is without a doubt, the most photographed hotel spot, even though it's tiny. Not sure how it could be change, but it opened up an opportunity for us to explore the nearby beaches.
