<3 Hotels

To me, it is the hotel that ultimately makes or mars a trip; and I’d rather not travel at all than not be able to check in a nice/very nice abode. The following post is just a little ode to hotels and to experiences that go beyond money…

The moment when you first lay eyes on your hotel and you know that you’ve made the right choice

The feeling of leaving your everyday matters and worries behind; of entering a whole other time when setting foot in a breathtakingly beautiful hotel lobby

The silent, but insistent invitation of a hotel bathrobe to spend the day lounging by the pool, to book in for an extensive pamper session at the spa centre and to finish your day off by soaking in a foamy bath; and the comforting reassurance that this is all you need to do today
