Accor buys Moevenpick, South African’s endgame?, Etihad takes on Emirates, Alaska goes single engine, IHG has a new Pointbreaks list

Escape Lounge Oakland (OAK) Review

The Escape Lounge at Oakland Airport (OAK) is located behind security, just opposite Gate 9 – often Norwegian’s favorite gate for their flight to Stockholm. I arrived at Oakland Airport at 10 AM for my Boutique Air flight and it was deserted, with nobody waiting at security. There were several attendants busy serving drinks and […]

The Haven Bali Seminyak Review

The Haven Bali Seminyak appears on most OTAs (like Expedia and Booking.com) for around $50 a night most of the year. The hotel is located along Seminyak’s busiest road and just behind Double Six Beach – one of the best (and also one of the busiest) beaches along the western shore of Bali. I wasn’t […]

Radisson Blu Kochi Review

Radisson Blu Kochi Review

The Radisson Blu Kochi is a new building along one of the busy roads leading into downtown Kochi in the neighborhood of Ernakulam. I was expecting a ‘grand’ Radisson Blu, given the luxury aspirations of the brand and the typical attentiveness and grand luxury of Indian hotels.

If this sounds confusing, the hotel is also next to a major freeway and hemmed in by low-rises and the water canal. While on a map, the hotel seems reasonably close to most of the attractions near […]
