A Visit to NIZUC Resort & Spa in Cancun, Mexico
October 6, 2017
By Graeme Green
It would take a pretty hardened or anxious soul not to be able to relax at NIZUC Resort & Spa. Located in Cancun’s ‘hotel zone’, at the tip of Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, the resort is just a 20 minute drive from the international airport, which makes getting there pretty hassle-free for a start.
A Visit to Lympstone Manor - Chef Michael Caines' New Luxury Hotel in Devon
July 20, 2017
By Graeme Green
The ‘new’ smell hasn’t yet faded at Lympstone Manor. The hotel, a modern take on the traditional English house, just opened in April 2017, and there’s a pleasant waft of the new every time you walk on the thick carpets or open a cupboard.
A Visit to Gidleigh Park - A Tranquil English Country House Hotel
July 17, 2017
By Graeme Green
“Down the rabbit hole” is how someone described Gidleigh Park to me, but, really, that’s the wrong literary reference. It’s less Lewis Carroll and Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland, far more H.G. Wells and The Time Machine. Arriving at the Tudor–style country house, having driven down narrow country roads, feels like a kind of time warp.
A Visit to The May Fair Hotel, London
July 17, 2017
By Graeme Green
Anyone who’s familiar with the Monopoly board game will know the most expensive street to buy or to land on is Mayfair. The same goes in real life.
A Stay at the St Regis Mexico City
April 18, 2017
By Graeme Green
Good things are happening up on the 15th floor. The Jacuzzi is bubbling away at 38 degrees.
Le Blanc Spa Resort - A Cool Hotel in Hot Cancun
February 24, 2017
By Graeme Green
“White, white,” laughs our butler, leading us through the corridors of Le Blanc. “”All white.” He's right, but really the explanation isn't all that necessary. Even if my rudimental French didn't mean I already understood the hotel's name, it doesn't take long at all to figure out there's a whole lot of white at Le Blanc.
A Visit to Hotel Esencia on the Riviera Maya
December 1, 2016
By Graeme Green
The old saying that “You can't judge a book by its cover” needs to be updated. These days, we judge everything not by the cover of the book, brochure or pamphlet, but by it's website.
A Visit to Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa
December 1, 2016
By Graeme Green
A good hostess is friendly and welcoming. It doesn't make a good first impression for any hotel if they're aloof and noisy, as happens at Belmond Maroma Spa and Resort.
A Visit to Banyan Tree Mayakoba
December 1, 2016
By Graeme Green
Arriving at Banyan Tree Mayakoba, you need to do a double take. Are you still in Mexico? The hotel is just a few miles outside Playa del Carmen, the lively party beach and party town on the coast of Quintana Roo on the Yucatan Peninsular, so this should definitely feel like Mexico.
A Visit to CasaSandra on Isla Holbox, Mexico
December 1, 2016
By Graeme Green
It takes just 25 minutes on a ferry, across from the mainland port of Chiquila on the northern tip of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsular, to reach Isla Holbox.
Checking In: Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites and Residences, London
August 23, 2016
By Graeme Green
I reach a set of black gates, the top of the rails coated gold. A Union Jack flag flaps in the wind above. There's more gold outside, in the form of regal-looking statues. A long line of people are queuing at the gates. Clearly, this is a popular place, but then this isn't my hotel, not yet.
Weekend Away: Shangri-La Hotel, Paris
May 24, 2016
By Graeme Green
As a child, Paris was a city stop on family holidays as we ferried across the Channel from England and drove down to the beaches in the south of France.
Luxury on the Riviera Maya at Grand Velas resort
March 4, 2016
By Graeme Green
Old, crumbled, faded, a shadow of it's former greatness…. There are plenty of buildings to match that description across the Yucatan Peninsula, this area of southern Mexico being a hotspot for ancient temples and archaeological sites from the mighty Mayan empire.
