Luxury Hotels in Asia, so you can be assured your hotel won’t be what spoils

Shangri-La Hotel Singapore




The Shangri La Hotel Singapore, now
this is the hotel that foreign Heads of State & dignitaries chose to stay
when they are in Singapore, they don’t just stay because the Shangri-la is the
most secure hotel on the Island it’s also the service and attention to detail which
the Shangri-La is world famous for and in our books makes it number 1


On entry to the Shangri-La Hotel Singapore
you will be awe struck by the main lobby this theme continues throughout the
entire hotel.


Those in the know who only want
the best book a room in the exclusive Shangri-La Valley Wing.



Mandarin Oriental
Hong Kong



Since opening in 1963 the Mandarin Oriental
Hong Kong has been synonymous with luxury & style, this still holds true
today, mind you the hotel has gone thru a renovation in recent years which has
made it even better.

A highly recommended stay in Hong Kong! Our
favourite rooms at the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong are the Harbour View Rooms
for a standard room, for a Suite the Deluxe Oriental Suite is great, but for
pure indulgence the Mandarin Suite is number one!


Peninsula Hotel Tokyo Japan


Peninsula Hotel Tokyo is a relatively new Luxury hotel located in Chiyoda-ku
Tokyo, and can be considered the ultimate in state of the art luxury; each room
tastefully incorporates technology which will make your stay enjoyable.


ultimate room at the Peninsula Hotel Tokyo is the Peninsula Suite which has
wide sweeping views Hibiya Park and the Imperial palace gardens.



Mandarin Oriental Bangkok


Just as
the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong above the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok is a Luxury
hotel which should need no introduction with over 130 years of tradition the
Mandarin Oriental Bangkok is one of the best that Thailand & Asia has to
offer. Situated on the banks of the Chao Phraya River the views and atmosphere
should not be missed.


hotel is the choice of the rich and famous not to mention heads of state.


favourite rooms at the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok is the Mandarin Room, for a great
suite the  Executive Suite is great value
for money,  but if money is no object the
Royal Oriental Suite should be your first choice.



The Peninsula Hotel Bangkok


Another great Thai hotel set spectacularly on
the bank of the Chao Phraya river, this 5 star hotel with the lot, has awesome
views tip top service & some of the most luxurious outfitted rooms we have
seen in Asia. It’s for these reasons The Peninsula Bangkok makes it on the list
of the 10 Best Luxury hotels Asia

We recommend the Grand Deluxe Room which has
spectacular panoramic views, but the best room in the house is The Peninsula
Suite which is extravagance on a huge scale, with the rooms easy access to the
hotels helipad


Four Seasons
Chang Mai Thailand


The first thing which comes to mind every
time I visit the Four Seasons Chang Mai, is tranquillity with a whole lot of
luxury thrown in.

The four seasons Chang Mai set among the rice
fields & mountains of the Mae Rim Valley a stay here is truly one of the
most unique luxury hotel experiences to be had in Asia.

For extreme luxury Asia Travel Magazine
recommends one of the private residence rentals with private plunge pool


Oberoi Udaivilas – Udaipur,


The Oberoi
Udaivilas in Udaipur India is consistently ranked one of the best luxury hotels
in Asia if not the world and we agree, from the moment you enter you are
treated like a king or queen.

attention to detail and service provided by staff is simply breathtaking, for
some this service is hard to get used to!


Metropole – Hanoi, Vietnam

The Sofitel Metropole Hanoi is truly a little
piece of France in Hanoi, the French influence might have something to do with
the fact the hotel was built in 1901 which is smack bang in the middle of the
100 year French occupation of Vietnam. If there is one thing the French did
right in Vietnam it’s this hotel.

It’s the style the service and the staff that
make the Sofitel Metrople Hanoi the best Luxury hotel in Vietnam, East meets
West its best!

To experience the true history of this hotel book
a Luxury room in the Historical Wing, for those that love all the mod cons the
grand premium room in the opera wing is a must


St. Regis
Shanghai China

The St. Regis Shanghai is a premier luxury
hotel in the center of Pudong that yearly wins many of the top Luxury hotel
awards. Our view on this hotel is that it’s hard to beat, fantastic service
& great facilities

Our favourite room at this hotel is the
Executive Deluxe room, for a suite either the Shanghai or Beijing Suites or for
the extravagant the Imperial Suite.


Shangri-la Shanghai


The Pudong Shangri-La Shanghai China is an
ultra modern luxury hotel in the heart of Pudong, what we love most about this
hotel is the top notch service that the Shangri-La is renowned for, this
together with the most luxurious interior & rooms, puts the Pudong
Shangri-La Shanghai at the top of the pile of hotels we would stay at in China.

If you want a great experience we recommend a
Bund view horizon club room or suite, but for extreme luxury and indulgence we
can’t highly recommend the Shanghai Suite enough
