For my 6th visit to Maldives I chose Cinnamon Hakuraa Huraa resort due to very good reviews and fantastic photos. However, I wasn’t aware that “one of the largest shallow lagoons in the Maldives” means no swimming during winter. Although the resort facilities, as well as its staff are wonderful, I did come to Maldives to swim. The management of Hakuraa was very helpful with relocating us to their sister island Cinnamon Velifushi. To cut things short, this resort has it all and here is my Cinnamon Velifushi Maldives honest review.
Resort Review: The Anvaya Beach Resort (Bali, Indonesia)
Bali is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, hence thousands of rooms and villas are available for different budget levels. There are only 2 relevant questions you should ask yourself before you book a hotel in Bali. First, where to stay in Bali in terms of logistics, travel plans and personal preferences. And second, how much money you are willing to spend for a perfect vacation. In this post I’ll write a review of the Anvaya Beach Resort, which is located in Kuta.
Hotel Review: Appia Hotel Residences (Prague, Czech Republic)
Finally, I had the chance to see my favorite band performing live in Prague. Guns ‘n’ Roses concert was scheduled for Saturday 18th June 2022, so we decided to take a long weekend, combining the event with 2-days of city sightseeing. In term of accommodation, Prague is packed with options, from hostels to high-end hotels, you just need to set your budget and priorities. Mine were: the location, parking, good breakfast, comfort and price performance according to the reviews. We chose Appia Hotel Residences Prague and totally nailed it!
Lodge review: La Pointe Beach Huts (Praslin, Seychelles)
After having decided to spend winter vacation in Seychelles and just go with the flow, the only question remained where to stay in Praslin Island. For me, choosing the perfect location for our base camp is usually very important. And in this case in particular, our choice turned out to be a vacation saver. While Praslin left us with mixed feelings, La Pointe Beach Huts was something that we’ll cherish in our memories for a long time.
Hotel Review: The View hotel at Monument Valley (Utah, USA)
Imagine that Monument Valley was something you’ve always wanted to see. Now imagine searching “where to stay in Monument Valley” and these words appear on your screen: “The view from each guestroom at The View Hotel is unlike anywhere else in the world. It is worth a journey from across the US or from the other side of the world.” And finally, imagine yourself not booking a room there. CAN you, seriously? Me neither!
Lodge review: Red Cliffs Lodge (Moab, Utah)
Utah is home to some of the United States’ most popular national parks. If your Utah itinerary includes Arches and Canyonlands national park, it is a good idea to stay somewhere in or near Moab. We stayed in Red Cliffs Lodge, which looked absolutely gorgeous on the web page. I admit, I felt for the photos. In this post you will find a detailed review of Red Cliffs lodge and see why it’s rated as one of the top places to stay in Moab.
Hotel review: Moxy Phoenix Tempe (Phoenix, Arizona)
Our USA road trip in October started and finished in Phoenix, Arizona. Since we were facing a lot of hotel-changing on the road, we wanted to stay somewhere nice and comfortable for a start. Our plan was to spend the first 2 days in Phoenix and the itinerary involved some hiking and shopping. We weren’t interested in visiting downtown, hence I searched for the hotels in Tempe to be as close to our interest points as possible. When the name “Moxy” appeared in my search, the decision was instant. I love Moxy and Moxy Phoenix Tempe it was. And once again, Moxy did not disappoint.
