Review ~ 99 The Heritage Hotel, Chiangmai

Back in February we went up to Chiangmai for a few days with my parents. As the only one who had visited before, my husband chose 99 The Heritage Hotel as he had a good experience in their sister hotel on a previous trip. It was just under £90 a room per night. This beautiful boutique…

Planning: Bali

I am well aware that we are very lucky to have the incredible holidays that we do. Trust me, I am. It blows my mind on the last day of term, the last day of every term, when my Facebook feed is frenetic with all the incredible places around the world that our expat friends and colleagues are…

Review ~ Baan Saitara Villas, Koh Samui

A few weeks ago we flew to Koh Samui for a few days. Flying direct with Bangkok Air is more expensive than doing the Nok Fly N Ferry option but in theory should save you about half a day each way – when your only going for four days this was precious time. We usually…

Review ~ Marriott, Hua Hin

A few weeks ago we headed down to the Marriott in Hua Hin for the weekend with some friends and our garish inflatables. We got a taxi down to the mainland  seaside resort town which cost around 5000 THB return and takes about 3 hours from central Bangkok. We got a great deal on our…

Review ~ Aleenta, Phuket

This weekend we headed to the beach for some R&R. Yes, I know, anyone who keeps up with my travels on Instagram will know we just got back from the UK and Spain but I had a holiday day to take so we headed to Phuket, more specifically to the Aleenta Resort & Spa. I can…

Hong Kong

For the first part of our two week Songkran holiday way back in April, we headed to Hong Kong with my parents and met up with my aunt and cousin who were flying in from Singapore. We flew  with Hong Kong Airlines from Bangkok and got ourselves straight onto the train link into the city….

Crown Lanta Revisited

It has been a very busy month – between visitors, holidays and work I genuinely don’t know where the past 6 weeks have gone. Well I do…mainly eating, drinking and holidaying but that’s besides the point. I have so much to fill you in on but today I wanted to tell you about one of…

Review ~ W Hotel, Bangkok

Last weekend was my birthday but it was also Chinese New Year meaning hotel prices by the beach were astronomical. Instead we had a two day ‘staycation’ in Bangkok, at a hotel about 5km away from where we live. We chose the W Bangkok which I have seen reviewed by a few travel bloggers and on…

How Do You Plan Yours?

Yesterday was spent on the sofa surrounded by travel guides and lists, utilising Safari on both my phone and laptop, organising our Thai holiday for when my parents visit in April. We are heading to Hong Kong for 4 nights during the first week of the holiday leaving us time to visit the beach for some down…

Anantara Lawana ~ Revisited

On Friday afternoon we left school and headed straight for the airport to catch our flight to Koh Samui. We were spending the weekend at the Anantara Lawana where we spent our honeymoon in January. If you missed my original review of the resort, you can find it here. If you follow me on Instagram you…

Indigo Pearl ~ Revisited

For the second part of our half term holiday (and after the fabulous Santhiya Resort on Koh Yao Yai) we spent three very relaxing nights back at the wonderful Indigo Pearl in Phuket. As we stayed in a different room to last time, and did a few new things at the resort so I thought it warranted another post,…

Review ~ Santhiya Resort, Koh Yao Yai

For half term we headed off with our friends to the Santhiya Resort on Koh Yao Yai for 4 nights followed by 3 nights back in Phuket at the Indigo Pearl Resort. We chose the Santhiya on Koh Yao Yai as we wanted to visit an island we hadn’t yet been to but that wasn’t too far away!…
