I loved my stay at Point Yamu by COMO. As a hotel, it was pretty close to perfect – the food, design and service were all wonderful. However, if I could change anything about the hotel, all I would change would be the destination itself. If you picked up Point Yamu and put it on […]

As much as I love a good resort getaway, I do find that having everything at my fingertips can sometimes make me a little bit complacent when it comes to actually getting out and exploring the towns and cities outside of the comfort of whatever resort I happen to be staying at. So to combat […]

I think I have already established that Soneva Kiri is pretty damn beautiful (click here and here and here)Β but it really is the sorta place that just keeps on giving.

My villa at Soneva Kiri was nothing short of amazing and I could have happily lazed away days (or months) without ever leaving the confines of my gorgeous digs.
