The Hotel: One & Only: The Palm

One of the most decadent resorts in the world, The Palm is an exclusive enclave stretching away from mainland Dubai on an artificial palm-shaped peninsula.

What They Said:

“If I could live here, I would! Everything about the hotel is super-luxe and the view is inane. The boat service [you can island-hop in a speedboat!] to the sister hotel on the mainland is pretty fun, too. To be honest, though, they had me at the home-made protein balls at the gym. It's the little things!”

Dani and Suraj

The Blog: Dani and Suraj are a married blogging team from Sydney, Australia who love a good sight as much as a good meal. Find Dani and Suraj's blog here.

The Hotel: Icelandair Hotel Vik

A cozy sanctuary of calm on Iceland's rugged and beautiful southern coast. A 15 minute hike north will bring you to the outstandingly beautiful Heiðarvatn plateau and waterfall.


What They Said:

“We highly recommend the hotel. Excellent staff and extremely friendly. The room was spacious and well-equipped. The bathroom as fantastic and the heated tiles were just divine!

It's only a 5min walk to the black sand beaches of Vik. Vik is perfectly situated as its right in between Reykjavik and the Jökulsárlón iceberg lagoons.”

Follow Me Away

The Blog: Follow Me Away is another blogging duo (travel is better with a buddy, of course). Victoria and Terrence are from Florida and specialise in pictures not words, accounting for their huge Instagram following.

The Hotel: Caribe Hilton, San Juan

A stunning ocean-side hotel in the beautiful Caribbean island of Puerto Rico. The Caribe Hilton has a beautiful private beach, making it a perfect beachside hangout.

What They Said:

“I would have to say that Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico, is by far the best beach hotel! Tons of place to eat properly, amazing views from lots of the rooms. There's a private beach with waves splashing on the rocks, a huge, beautiful pool with swim-up bar and a boardwalk where you can feed fish and see the sea life!”
