A home to one of the eighth wonder of the world, The Angkor Wat, and a living proof of Khmer Empire’s glorious era and flourish civilization with impeccable geometry, extraordinary architecture, and unmatched designs, Temples of Angkor, Siem Reap is a Star Attraction and a city that is truly like no others. It is a kind of place to be seen by your very own eyes only. Truly magical and forever sensational to both of us! We are so excited to be back, always have ton of fun shooting here as unlimited amount of fine photography is being made despite numbers of our visit. The Temples of Angkor have the grand scale of The Great Wall of China, the majestic beauty and delicacy of Indian’s Taj Mahal, and the strong resemblance of Egyptian Pyramid, all combined into one; making its European castle counterparts blush. Akin to that of Egyptian Pyramid, they both provoked an obvious question “How were they built? (Especially when It was build almost a thousand years ago, in 1101”). These irresistible authentic Cambodian charms, unanswered wonders, and endless inspirations luring us to make our repeat visit to Siem Reap. As we have always been very fond of how Park Hyatt flawlessly and exquisitely blends chic modern vibes together with that of the charm of local authentic heritage, we have chosen to stay at Park Hyatt Siem Reap. It is exactly what we thought and hope it to be, an ultimate 5-star oasis located at the very heart of the vibrant, Siem Reap. It totally is a perfect & long waited holiday, a little break from GMAT. Ready to explore the enchanted Siem Reap and its spellbound temples of Angkor? Come this way! Quick!
As soon as the boat pulls up to the balcony of our ultra-luxe 250 square meters’ overwater villa home “Crusoe Residence No.5”, we wanted to jump out into this endless crystal clear turquoise water and blue lagoons, plant both of our feet in the sand, then swim out to our private overwater hammock along with incredible underwater wildlife friends, and lay there from sunrise to sunset. Then stay right there without moving as we watch the stars coming out at night, each one of them blazing out so brightly across the sky, like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Yes, our overwater villa home can only be accessed by boat, that is how exclusive this paradise is. This is by far the best overwater villa we have ever stayed in here in Maldives. Gili Lankanfushi or the formerly known as Soneva Gili Lankanfushi runs with one rule and one rule only “no news, no shoes”. Making it feel so damn good leaving the rest of the world behind as this place leaves us breathless and makes us believe we can walk on water, an ultimate barefoot luxury. Not only that they are a home to the world’s Overwater Villas (Yes! All of those you now see in Bora Bora is the imitation of this) but they also are a home of The World’s Largest Overwater Villa “The Private Reserve” 1,700 Square Meters. It is not often you found yourself in a place that its real life beauty surpasses that of magazines and advertisement you have ever seen. Gili Lankanfushi is a resort beyond any words and expectation. Something truly to be experienced by oneself.
With long history in perfection of attention to details, world class service (you can expect to be addressed by name at every turn starting from the doorman at the entrance to chefs at restaurants and all the way to the hotel management), and authentic oriental influenced ambiance of “Your chic home away from home”, our high expectation is always met and even overachieved at Mandarin Oriental. That is what we have chosen to stay at Mandarin Oriental Paris during our Easter Holiday in Paris. Mandarin Oriental never fails to surprise us, they spent 5 years just searching for the perfect location in this Magnifique French Capital “Paris”. Located on Rue Saint-Honoré of the first arrondissement, one of the most prestigious areas and most luxurious shopping streets in Paris. Mandarin Oriental is standing tall shoulder to shoulder with luxurious designer boutiques including Christian Dior, Chanel, Hermes, Balenciaga, and the magnificent Graff, just to name a few. Le Lourve, Le Jardin des Tuileries, Place Vendôme, and Opera Garnier are only few steps away. If you are ready to check in to the Haute Couture Holiday Runaway Heaven of pure elegance and understated luxury at the very heart of Paris, come with me. This way.
From Sky rocking buildings to golden ancient temples, from buzzing nightlife to authentic floating markets, from high end designer shops to street markets, Bangkok is a vibrant, dynamic, and charming city that has it all. Anantara Siam Bangkok is your luxury authentic escape at the heart of Bangkok (3 minutes walk from Rajadamri BTS Station). You gotta love their elegant rendezvous lobby filled with dozens of blooming flowers (oh yes!) and lush green gardens, grand marble staircases, hand painted silk ceilings and walls, embedding Traditional Thai to contemporary architecture, seven restaurants for dining choices (Every Sunday the hotel offers Brunch to showcase mouth watering dishes from their award winning restaurants, and of cause we got this covered for you :)), and outdoor pool surrounded by tropical foliage . It is hard to believe that you could have it all in the city center. Oh have I mentioned that they got the BEST SPA in TOWN!? Checking into our 3 Days 2 Nights stay at One Bedroom Corner Suite. Follow me, this way.
Our jaws drop as our longtail boat cruising closer to Koh Kradan and the ocean started turning into crazy shades of vivid turquoise blue. No wonder why our resort is called “Sevenseas Resort”. The water is crystal clear we can see white sand underneath the ocean’s floor. As professional island hoppers we are not afraid to say that this is most definitely one of the most beautiful islands in Thailand. We got asked by many of our followers where the under radar, non-touristic, and secluded tropical paradises are? Koh Kradan just made it to that list.
Couple at Six Senses Yao Noi Thailand
“Welcome Back Home” the gentle voices echoed. We looked up and encountered with heartfelt smiles and grins upon the faces of Six Senses Yao Noi team whom warmly welcomed us as we stepped into their private jetty. Among those was my super GEM (Guest Experience Manager) from my previous stay “Pee Kawee” who is now promoted to Assistant Manager but still insist on coming to see us upon arrival and through out our entire (magical) stay. This is how superb and unparalleled service is here. Six Senses will always have our hearts and there is no end to our future returns to this property and our future visits to that of others.

This is most certainly the ultimate tropical island dream that one shall experience once in a lifetime. Get ready for luxurious pampering among the great nature where soul soothing is guaranteed.
