A Tuscan Treat: Castello del Nero Hotel & Spa

  • Tuscany
  • Italy

This October, I took a two hour flight from London to Pisa, the city with the infamous 12th century Leaning Tower. I then travelled forward to Chianti, a winemaking region in Tuscany one hour away, where I spent three blissful days eating the most divine local produce and drinking…

Glamping in Asia: Five of the Best

  • India
  • Sri Lanka
  • Indonesia
  • Cambodia
  • Thailand

Travel trends come and go, and for every fad that eventually gets committed to the tourism equivalent of Room 101 (extreme heat holidays, anyone? - have a google) there is one that becomes entrenched in the collective travel psyche. Having burst onto the scene in the mid noughties, glamping…

A Room With A View

  • Chile
  • Japan
  • Oman
  • USA
  • South Africa
  • Morocco

We may have shamelessly stolen E.M. Forster's title but fear not, we're not embarking upon a literary critique of 20th Century English society (that's next week). We've instead been pondering the very best views from some simply spectacular hotel rooms across the planet… a guaranteed…

The Best Hotels in Turks and Caicos

  • Turks & Caicos

Boasting immaculate beaches, bath-warm tropical seas, ultra-luxurious hotels, the least rainfall of any Caribbean island nation and a lobster season that lasts from August to April, the Turks and Caicos Islands should definitely be at the top of the Caribbean holiday hit list.

24 Hours at Six Senses Douro Valley

  • Portugal

Six Senses Laamu – A perfect Day In Paradise

I was lucky enough to spend a week at the fabulous Six Senses Laamu in the Maldives last year, and loved it so much I am going back this year! It really is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The island itself is stunning; the villas are, quite frankly, jaw-dropping, the food…

Sun, Sea, Sand and Relaxation at GoldenEye, Jamaica

In a world of endless emails, crowded streets, traffic jams and phones buzzing left, right and centre it can be really quite difficult to switch off (literally) and relax. Well this is absolutely not the case at GoldenEye in Jamaica, where you will feel so laidback you'll be practically…

Richard's Camp, Kenya

  • Kenya

I have been fortunate enough to travel to many far-flung parts of the globe but I've never been on safari or travelled to East Africa. In December, however, I was lucky enough to visit Kenya where I headed to Nairobi briefly, before heading down to the Masai Mara to stay at Richard's River…
