AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND
SOFITEL AUCKLAND VIADUCT HARBOUR
A beautiful hotel near the waterfront in Auckland, the SOFITEL AUCKLAND VIADUCT HARBOUR is the perfect location to experience the city while being at the waterfront. The beds are comfortable, great linens and outstanding 'tub for two' in our room. It's not a huge hotel which is a plus because it feels cozy and quaint. Great stay!
The Racha is a beautiful resort with wonderful rooms and service. The two bedroom suite with it's own infinity pool, jacuzzi tub, outdoor shower, amazing view of the beach from the comfort of your king-size bed, and all the amenities is worth the boat ride and the price. And the warm ocean water, the beach, & the amazing snorkling are awesome. Grab a body board and have fun in the surf, or an ATV to explore the island, and then return for cocktails at sundown. Such a fun and relaxing resort.
PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC
BUDDAH BAR HOTEL
The Buddah Bar Hotel and Restaurant in Prague is in a great location and a really cool, boutique-hotel vibe. We upgraded to a suite and it was well worth the money - top floor, cozy room, almost perfection (the towels could have been better), and a perfect location near Old Town Square in beautiful Prague
HONG KONG, CHINA
THE LANGHAM in Hong Kong is a fantastic hotel in Kowloon. The suites are beautiful and have all the amenities, including our favorite - a tub that's comfortable for two - and you can walk to all the sites, street markets, shopping, and the Victoria Docks to catch the water taxi to Hong Kong...exceptional stay and can't wait to return!
CROWN TOWERS in Melbourne is the perfect stay! The rooms are comfortable and well thought out, including a tub for two, and the location in the CBD, right on the river with a ton of great shops and restaurants can't be beat...and, there's a casino, gaming for kids and other fun things to do! Awesome stay, especially the suites.
The new Mondrian, Doha, newly opened Oct, 2017, has a lot of great things going for it. The hotel is trendy and chic, including a very unique and cool elevator system. We stayed in a hip 'studio suite' which was plenty big enough for two with a great, ONE OF THE BEST EVER tub and in-ceiling rainfall shower. The room decor could be described as a bit cold and sterile, (with so much white and even marble floors), but the room itself was great. Wonderful, comfortable king-size bed with quality bedding, mini bar (was still being 'stocked' for the expats of Qatar), Nespresso machine, great snacks, huge balcony, and lots of space. A great staycation if you live in the region, and one of the best if you are visiting! And, the restaurants such as CUT and MORIMOTO, as well as a sweet at MAGNOLIA BAKERY are great additions to the Doha scene.
