Joy~Nostalg Hotel & Suites Manila is located in Ortigas, Pasig which is a popular business district and has multiple shopping malls within walking distance.

I enjoyed two nights in a one-bedroom suite which was spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked and the room had high speed internet. The shower also has a steam option and there was a TV in the bathroom which was convenient.

The hotel has a rooftop bar on the 43rd floor with panoramic views of Manila Bay, it is the perfect spot for sundowners. They also serve food from the grill to accompany your cocktails.

The hotel’s main restaurant, Nostalgia Lounge & Bar, offers buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. The breakfast was delicious, the buffet included, pastries, hot dishes, cold meats, cereals and more, the chef will cook your eggs while you wait. 

The indoor heated pool is the perfect place to relax after a long day and be sure to take a dip in the jacuzzi. The pool even has underwater music playing! The fitness center has all the necessary equipment for a good workout.

This hotel is perfect for long stays, or a short staycation when you are in Manila. The suites are pet friendly and spacious for families.

Perfect oasis in the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg.

We had the pleasure of staying at Hyde Park Guest House on a recent short visit to Johannesburg.

As a family of four, with 2 young children, it was ideal for us since we were able to have adjoining rooms which gave us plenty of privacy and space. 

We were offered the choice of a cooked breakfast, made to order, there was also a full breakfast buffet with a variety of items to choose from.

Thank you, Elfreda, for a lovely stay. The hospitality from the friendly staff was wonderful, the accommodation was very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious.

Villa Caemilla Beach Boutique Hotel – Relaxed luxury and the perfect location on Boracay Island’s White Beach.

Villa Caemilla is located on Station 3 of Boracay’s White Beach, one of the most famous beaches in the world. Station 3 is the quieter side of the beach, away from the hustle and bustle, so it’s perfect for a relaxing stay.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the friendly reception staff and were given a handmade garland, fresh coconut water and a cold towel.

The receptionist assisted us with booking an excursion to one of the nearby islands, it was booked within minutes and the guide arrived shortly after. We had an amazing day trip to Magic Island.

Beach Bar

We were given a complimentary beach bag and reusable water bottles and there was a water jug in restaurant where we could fill up anytime. The hotel also has an ATM which was really helpful.

The room had the most perfect view of the ocean and surrounding palm trees. It was the perfect place to relax and watch the sunset. The bedroom was comfortable and the jacuzzi bathtub was amazing.

The restaurant served an à la carte breakfast, I had fresh orange juice and a delicious omelette with a view of the beach. For dinner, I enjoyed the Bitterballen and the crispy chicken wrap, both well-presented and full of flavour. At night the restaurant has the most romantic and beautiful ambience.

If you are looking for a carefree and relaxing beach holiday, this unique boutique hotel is perfect for you, it is great value for money, presenting affordable luxury.

Hilton London Bankside – A luxury modern hotel in London City Centre.

We recently had the privilege of staying at Hilton London Bankside for three nights in a king deluxe room.

The ambience of the hotel is warm and welcoming. We were delighted to enter our room and find a complimentary drink accompanied by delectable macaroons – my sweet tooth is still dreaming of them.

We immediately felt at home, especially since the bed was extremely comfortable and plush, we had such a good night’s sleep. The bathroom was every inch of modern perfection, with interesting colours and lighting to help one relax after a day of exploring the extensive sights of London.

We were also fortunate to have access to the Executive Lounge which was very organized and had amazing food and drinks available. With their super-fast Wi-Fi this was a great place to catch up on some work.

Hilton London Bankside has a perfect location in London with many cultural and historical sites within walking distance. The Concierge surprised us with his tips on how best to navigate the area, as well as assistance in finding some interesting nearby attractions.

With a fitness centre and beautiful indoor pool, this modern contemporary hotel has everything to offer. Our time at Hilton London Bankside was such perfection, we can only say that we highly recommend you choose this hotel for all round comfort and good memories from start to finish.

Pan Pacific London – a modern urban retreat in the heart of the City of London.

When in London we had the pleasure of spending a night at Pan Pacific London. We arrived to immediately feel embraced by the ambience and were impressed with the décor which was matched by the friendly and attentive staff who welcomed us.

My partner and I enjoyed the comfort of a beautiful en-suite deluxe room with a stunning view of the city. The room was super-modern with all the amenities at hand to make one feel at home. 

We chose to dine at the in-house restaurant, Straits Kitchen, which proved to be an experience we will never forget. The restaurant serves South East Asian food with dishes from Singapore. Our favourite was the variety of small plates, which included spring rolls, prawns and vegetables, to top it all off, we indulged in the Mandarin dessert which was absolutely delicious. 

My partner and I are both very keen on keeping up with our gym routines when travelling and this was undoubtedly the best gym I have ever seen in a hotel. The gym is fully equipped with the latest technologies and is clean and organized. We also took the opportunity to have an afternoon dip in the pool at the spa, it was extremely relaxing and the setting was amazing with an incredible view of the city. 

We will definitely return to Pan Pacific London on our next visit to London.
