5-Star Insider

March 3rd, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

I thoroughly enjoyed having breakfast at the Executive Club of the Westin Miyako in Kyoto. Every morning, I watched the fog from the mountains gently retreat from the sunrise, until I could finally see the tiled roofs of the temples of Nanzenji.

In almost all of my international trips, I’ve always had the pleasure of staying and dinning at five-star hotels. To date, I have enjoyed the tropical sun at the Ritz-Carlton Rose Hall Resort in Jamaica and at the Westin Resort and Spa in Puerto Vallarta. I have savored high-grade wagyu and otoro at the Westin Miyako in Kyoto and until today I still can’t forget the heavenly Hainanese Chicken Rice at the Meritus in Singapore. I have immersed myself in the warm waters of W Hong Kong’s 76th-floor outdoor pool (the highest in the city) in the middle of winter and I have beaten the heat of Ho Chi Minh City with overflowing cold drinks at the Club Lounge of the Sheraton Saigon. These great hotels are destinations in themselves, and as a tribute, deserve their own album of iconic photographs.
