Anantara Peace Heaven Tangalle Resort

Looking through the window of the airplane as you are about to land in Sri Lanka you see a beautiful tropical jungle ! Sri Lanka is a unique place ! Is a beautiful island just below India and very close to the Maldives.

After landing you take a car and you travel about 4 hours to reach the ultimate heaven! The Anantara Peace Heaven Tangale Resort is a brand new resort and the first of the Anantara group in Sri Lanka.

I cant really describe how amazing my experience at this resort was.

Although we arrived very late at night, the check in was a fantastic experience. Our driver got complementary accommodation in the resort for as long as we were staying there.

The fist night we checked in to a beautiful garden villa but the next day we asked to be upgraded and got the most amazing ocean view pool Villa you will ever see! All villas are really spacious and the bathrooms are massive with luxurious amenities.

Extra Luxury : Each villa has a Butler service

The management of the this hotel really thought of everything !! Inside the villa you can find flip-flops (in case you didn’t bring with you), a bag for the swimming pool, 3 kind of pillows, even a anti-mosquito gel.

The breakfast was huge as well! They are offering wonderful selection of every kind of breakfast you can think of: from international, to Arabic and Chinese. All the fruits were really tasty and fresh. Do not forget to try the amazing coconuts!

Beautiful to See: The resort has a local person who climbs the coconut trees and cuts the fruits to be served to the guests!

Although the infinity pool is beautiful we fell in love with the beach. The sun beds were really comfortable, the staff very nice and very considerate.

Extra Pampering: Once you were siting in the pool or in the beach, the staff would bring you the towels and a basket with: two bottles of water, a pair of flip flops, 2 fresh oranges and a sun block!

Everyone in the hotel is really friendly and polite. They were extremely helpful. The Resort also offers 3 restaurants and 3 spots for private dining.

I would definitely recommend the Private Dining as the set menu is really massive and delicious.

Once in Sri Lanka you have to try the sea food and especially the crabs, the lobster and the shrimps. Do not miss the curries ! Although most of them are really spicy, the taste is rewarding!

Enjoy !

Palazzo Versace Dubai

Dubai is ready to welcome a new hotel opening! The stunning Palazzo Versace is finally ready to open the doors!

It was 2008 that the residents of Dubai were expecting this master hotel. Then the crisis hit Dubai and the plans for this enormous hotel were put on hold.. The people who purchased apartments in the property had to wait 8 years to get the keys!

High-Tea on Al Qasr Jumeirah Hotel

In the dawn of nineteen century the tea consumption was increased in Great Britain and few years later the art of High-Tea was mastered. All of my British friends agree that this is a great tradition. It is a perfect, chic get-together way for every occasion; from meeting friends to celebrating birthdays. For the non-British, like myself, it was just a great experience!

High-Tea is served from 2pm until 5pm. So start your afternoon by booking in any five star hotel that offers the afternoon tea experience. Choose the type of the tea that you prefer and enjoy the delicious canapés and pastries, prepared exclusively for the afternoon tea. Add a glass of bubbly that will blend perfectly with the tastes and the fusions!

The Al Qasr Hotel offers a unique experience with a generous variety of canapés and pastries. Do not get yourself full because there is an amazing chocolate fondue at the end of your tea!

Hotel Report – Paradise Road Tintagel – Colombo, Sri Lanka

In Sri Lanka you will find many differences. You will meet very rich and very poor people, you will see luxurious hotels and houses without doors, you will see beautiful temples, street artists, gems trading and dancing snakes.

If you are planning visiting Colombo and you love the boutique hotels, there is only one place I would recommend.

The Paradise Road Tintagel Hotel.

paradise-road---tintagel-colombo-hotel

From the architecture, to the interior and the food everything is exquisite! The building is a piece of art, a real British old-school mansion. The suites are really spacious with several spaces and a huge bathroom. It’s not a secret that Prince Charles and Kamila, the Duchess of Cornwall, were staying this beautiful hotel during their visit in Sri Lanka.

Paris is probably my favorite city! Even the air is different in this city. The city surrounds you with elegance and beauty. I also love the Parisian people. Many people think that they are snobbish and arrogant, but I cannot blame them. After all they are living in the most beautiful city in the world.

During my last visit in Paris, mon petit ami, took me to stay in a fabulous boutique hotel downtown; Hôtel le Burgundy.

hotel-le-burgundy-paris-boutique-hotel-luxeLa-Verriere-

This hotel has a true Parisian character; simple and elegant. Located in the heart of Paris, just minutes away from the Champs Elysees, the Louvre, the Opera and the Seine river.

The location is also perfect if you are into shopping as you have all the high-end fashion brands within minutes including the Galeries Lafayette!

Spoil yourself and get a one of the suites. The suites are really spacious and you feel that you are inside of a dollhouse! The atmosphere inside the rooms is Zen and relaxed, as the decoration is on warm tones.

Do not miss the opportunity to explore the restaurant in the secret garden and use the indoor pool and the SPA.
