Mandarin Oriental Bodrum: sleek chic at the Turkish Riviera

Mandarin Oriental Bodrum is located in the heart of the Turkish Riviera. Add to this two private beaches strewn with extra-soft white sand, four swimming pools, a three-level spa where signature treatments share space with famous local hammam, some of the best restaurants of the region and a team which is totally committed to delight and satisfy its guests. I visited this gem this summer and it will be a pleasure to share each detail of my amazing stay. Enjoy the ride!

L’Assiette Champenoise is the starred experience in Champagne

This stay was a dream coming true to me. L’Assiette Champenoise is a place I always wanted to visit. First time I heard about it was during a trip to Champagne some years ago, when a champagne producer told me that this was the best and most exclusive hotel and restaurant in the region. I finally spent three nights in the property last month only to conclude that this statement is absolutely true. Enjoy the ride!

Pulitzer hotel: Dutch elegance in Amsterdam’s top location

Pulitzer has been one of my favourite hotels in Amsterdam even before I stayed in it and the reason is quite simple: the property is all about quintessential Dutch elegance in an intricate maze of 25 connecting Golden Age canal houses which were fully renovated in 2016. I gladly spent a couple of days at Pulitzer some weeks ago and it will be a pleasure to tell you every detail about my wonderful stay – another great trip with Preferred Hotels.

MOMO: high-end Asian immersion in Amsterdam

I don’t really know how many times I have been to MOMO just as I don’t know how many times I have been to Amsterdam before living here. MOMO is a classic. Years go by, there is always a bunch of new restaurants in town and MOMO holds strong as a trendy hotspot. This restaurant is the originator of high-end Asian cuisine + distinct design in Amsterdam and has been raising the bar for more than 9 years.

Thumbs up for fresh and inventive Asian fusion that is food for our body, soul and also our eyes. Do not forget the amazing cocktails prepared to perfection by some of the best bartenders in the Netherlands.

I returned to this beloved restaurant two weeks ago and it will be a pleasure to share my impressions with you.
