I am so fortunate that my partner Nix is such a health buff that even if I feel like sleeping in being lazy you have someone that nudges you to work out and get healthy. So even if were on a holiday in Paradise we work out. Happily the gym in AMANpulo is just beautiful and just like anything else here it felt like we had the gym all to... Continue Reading

I think that I may have started a bad case of an addiction. It started several years ago when I visited Thailand and was introduced to a world of luxury like no other. This was more than 20 years ago when I visited an AMAN resort in Thailand. I did not have the means to stay in the resort but I had the opportunity to have a meal there and to... Continue Reading

This is part two of the Golden Globes….Black edition. Where 98% percent of all the attendees are in black! In support of the Times up movement. I think it’s wonderful when an industry solidly supports a truly important cause. In my opinion there were many hits as well as several misses this year and you really get to see it more as it...

When in the Paradise that is known as SIARGAO there are several must do’s! The first is have a fresh, beautiful breakfast at SHAKA! I loved their fruit bowls that tasted so good and healthy.

I found my favourite island in the Philippines and it is called Siargao. I have been to this island once before and stayed at DEDON and because it was so secluded I failed to explore the island and just stayed at the resort which was really such a travesty because I failed to really see and appreciate the magic that this island gives.
