Planning a vacation to Walt Disney World can be tricky considering all there is to do at “The Most Magical Place on Earth.” In terms of hotels alone, Disney World offers 32 different destinations to call home during your visit. Some of them include Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and of course, Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

Unfortunately, for those planning to visit this week or for those who are already there, storms are coming and they have forced Disney to reduce the availability of its vast collection of hotels.

Florida residents, as well as those traveling to Florida in the coming days, have been urged to pay attention to weather forecasts from law enforcement and other local authorities and officials as the Sunshine State prepares for the rapid intensification of Tropical Storm Ian.

As we reportedthe most recent data on Tropical Storm Ian suggests the storm will intensify, becoming a hurricane later in the day on Sunday and becoming a Category 4 hurricane as it passes over Cuba on Tuesday. Hurricane Ian is expected to weaken slightly before making landfall along the Gulf Coast of Florida.

The potential for flash flooding in Florida also exists, as shown in the graphic below from the National Hurricane Center.

Hotel Review: SAii Laguna Phuket, Bang Tao Beach, Phuket in Thailand Sat, 24 Sep 2022 09:00:00 +0000

Dotted across Thailand’s pristine, if often stormy coastline, the SAii Laguna Phuket is a truly stunning resort that recently wowed me. However, I have to admit that I felt like I was in something ultra-special over the next four days, minutes after stepping onto the hotel porch after a short drive from the airport.

Greeted with a garland of orchids, a scented cold towel, a refreshing iced hibiscus drink and that quintessentially Thai greeting, I knew I had made the right choice choosing this place for my first trip to Thailand in near three years.


The grand lobby has a colonial and traditional Thai style Room architectural style

While there’s no shortage of luxury accommodation options at Laguna Phuket – one of Phuket’s most luxurious enclaves – SAii Laguna Phuket is a truly exceptional resort destination. Located next to Bangtao Beach, one of Thailand’s most exquisite beaches, its lush tropical gardens open onto a tranquil lagoon, just steps from the Andaman Sea. Part of the aforementioned gated Laguna Phuket resort –– which is also home to several other five-star resorts, interesting restaurants, and shopping areas — this sprawling resort seems to have it all.

Arranged in a traditional and colonial Thai sala architectural style, the Grand Lobby is an impressive space. And one that offers guests stunning waterfront views that form a spectacular backdrop. Outfitted with plenty of polished teak wood accents, plantation-style hanging fans, and basket-shaped pendant lights, the space is inviting and relaxed. However, I should particularly mention the corner Chinese apothecary cabinet that hands out free cookies and mini packets of mixed nuts that you can take home 24/7.


saii resort phuket suite
The One Bedroom Ocean Suite has a private terrace with a view of the Andaman Sea

Appointed to perfection, the various wings of the resort have 255 rooms and suites overlooking the lagoon, pools or the mighty Andaman Sea. One such example is the One Bedroom Ocean Suite. All appointed with terracotta floors, silk furniture, a private terrace and a sumptuous Thai-style reading nook, this one is as luxurious as it gets.

Since my ocean-facing room was a Club Room, I had all-day access to the resort’s dedicated club — a separate structure, which appears to float above the lagoon. An exclusive club lounge with panoramic views, this is where one can get complimentary drinks and snacks for club and suite level guests. It also includes personalized check-in, an elegant a la carte breakfast, as well as all-day tea, coffee and refreshments, afternoon snacks and evening cocktails with tasting plates.

Food and drink

The resort has a number of dining options including Miss Olive Oyl

Speaking of food, blame it on the beach look, but I was in a constant battle with my hunger pangs throughout my four days at SAii Laguna Phuket. Luckily for me, a satisfying snack or hearty meal was never too far away.

The resort offers a number of dining options ranging from the beautifully named duo Miss Olive Oyl and Mr. Tomyam to others. While the former offers something you won’t find anywhere else in Phuket: a culinary tour of the Mediterranean with a menu ranging from Sicily to the Levantine Coast, the latter is an interesting open-air restaurant.

Beachfront on Bangtao Beach, in the resort’s spectacular swimming pool, Mr. Tomyam offers meals from morning to evening. It’s the combination of the essence of Thai dishes with the delights of international classics that has made this my favorite place to dine. For those who prefer something lighter, the Locavore restaurant is an inviting indoor terrace to relax at any time of the day with a coffee or to watch the sunset with cocktails and soft music.


watersports saii resort phuket
The resort offers a variety of water sports for guests

Being a beach resort, there is no shortage of gambling activities here. Whether you are a child or an adult, you will find what you are looking for. Because there are not one, not two, but three swimming pools, including a 55-meter waterslide and a variety of sports options for everyone.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the resort offers all of its non-motorized water activities like paddleboarding, kayaking, and surfing for free. For those who want to stay active, there is also a fitness center and an international tennis academy with indoor and outdoor courts, squash and badminton courts.

Or maybe we could always spend an evening lounging in the cabanas by the pool. These are accompanied by personalized butler service offering spectacular grilled prawns, washed down with perfectly prepared Mai Tai cocktails. Pure happiness.

For sybarites like me, there is the massage room near the main pool. Offering a variety of traditional Thai and oil massages, this makeshift tent spa area that replaces a more permanent spa structure is no less luxurious and relaxing. With qualified therapists on hand to take care of all your treatment needs, you’re sure to be in bliss when you’re done.

In a word

swimming pool saii laguna phuket
SAii Laguna Phuket is one of Thailand’s most luxurious retreats

With its multitude of natural, cultural and culinary attractions on offer and almost every inch of its space imbued with that quintessentially Thai hallmark of hospitality, choosing the SAii Laguna Phuket is a no-brainer. Add to that the guarantee of fun and sunny days with a number of water sports and other ‘luxury activities’ and your holiday on the Andaman Coast of Thailand looks good.

Getting There

Laguna Phuket gated resort is 25 minutes drive from Phuket Airport. This bustling international airport offers plenty of connection options from all over Thailand, Asia, Europe and Australia on a number of airlines. If arriving by speedboat from one of the many islands on Thailand’s Andaman coast, such as Koh Phi Phi in Krabi, the resort is a half-hour drive from Phuket’s Ao Po Grand Marina pier located on the east side of the island.


Rooms start from £114.

Last update

All-Inclusive is Kimpton’s first all-inclusive venture and will open in early 2024

The hotel brand Kimpton is preparing to open its premier all-inclusive resort and chose Playa del Carmen as the location to do so. The new resort adds to an already growing number of accommodations in the Mexican Caribbean.

The resort, which will be a similar conversion to the one currently taking place at the Ritz, is currently known as Hacienda Tres Rios Spa And Nature Park and will simply add its Kimpton name to the front. The conversion itself seems to be much more complete.

While the current resort is still all-inclusive, Kimpton’s vision plans will be to add more options for guests. Currently, six restaurants are available on site, as well as a cafe. Kimpton’s conversion suggests there will be as many as eleven or twelve different culinary options, depending on the source cited.

On top of that, guests can expect five pool options, including at least two adults-only pools, three bars, a world-class spa, and a range of amenities from kids’ clubs to a wide range of entertainment. business facilities. Of course, its location on the water allows guests access to a private beach to avoid the crowds in the main part of town.

The resort as it is now is already known for being an eco-conscious establishment, something Kimpton hopes to continue. Beautifully sandwiched between lush greenery and the beachfront, the resort sits in the middle of a protected natural park that guests can explore at varying abilities. Within the natural park are at least ten cenotes, as well as an array of wildlife and flora.

There are 255 rooms available on the resort, keeping it a bit more intimate than some of the massive new seven-hundred-room behemoths dotted around the area. Its location will also help add to the remote feel of the place.

It’s a new step for KImpton, which is generally considered a more boutique, urban-style hotel brand. It is growing rapidly worldwide, with many more hotels planned for North and Central America in the months and years to come.

This is only Kimpton’s second property in the Mexican Caribbean and its first-ever all-inclusive. The other Kimpton, named Kimpton Aluna, is located in Tulum. The boutique hotel is more in line with the typical image of the brand, although in a very different location from their other hotels.

The current schedule puts the opening of the newly renovated station in early 2024, or late 2023 in some cases.

playa del carmen from above

It’s not the first and it won’t be the last major brand to set its sights on the Mexican Riviera. Hilton, Hyatt and a range of other hotel giants have invested millions of dollars in the area, with a diverse range of hotels springing up from Cancun to Tulum. Hilton was particularly aggressive in its development, opening at least seven hotels over the next few years. It is already open all-inclusive in Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum.

playa del carmen beach

Even some foreign brands with little traction in North or Central America are popping up. The Cancun Ritz, an iconic hotel in the area, has already had its flag taken down to be replaced by a relatively unknown brand named Kempinski. The handover only took place last month, but will see a much-needed overhaul of the classic hotel’s interior.

Those hoping to hit Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum over the winter break should start thinking about booking soon. With travel demand still high, it’s likely that many hotels will start to see their bookings dry up in the coming month.

Fall vacations are also available, and cheap flight deals can be had from a variety of airlines across the states.

Leisure travelers and youth sports teams hit the road again last year after largely staying home during the early months of the pandemic in 2020, pushing hotel stays up in County Hamilton at an all-time high in 2021.

After tourism spending in Hamilton County jumped 40% from 2020 to 2021, industry leaders said Tuesday they expect an even better year for tourism this year.

“2021 has been a great year for Chattanooga’s tourism industry,” Chattanooga Tourism Co. President Barry White said at the group’s annual meeting at the Chattanooga Trade Center. “On average, more than 15,000 people per night stayed at our hotels last year, and those guests generated the highest total hotel revenue in our history.”

White and other executives said travel spending in Chattanooga is expected to be even higher this year, having already pushed employment in the local hospitality industry in Chattanooga to an all-time high of more than 31,000 people this summer.

Hotel Cheval Blanc in St. Barts has private pools and better beach views Mon, 19 Sep 2022 06:30:00 +0000

when you enter Cheval Blanc St-Barth, there is an immediate sense of peace and tranquility. Soft whites, tropical greens and the hotel’s pale pink color surround guests as they enter the House. Wooden walkways reminiscent of beach promenades wind from room to room and building to building, protected by palm trees and other island foliage. It’s the kind of destination where every moment is clothed in that unmistakable holiday glow – and an Instagram-worthy photo sits around every corner. By Lydia Mansell

LVMH’s Cheval Blanc hotel brand opened the St. Barths property in 2014, but after Hurricane Irma caused severe damage in 2017, the hotel underwent extensive renovations. Since then, the team has maintained a steady stream of updates and programming to ensure the 61-room getaway is fresh, innovative and luxurious.

Here’s a look inside the luxurious St. Barts hotel

Part of the ongoing magic and appeal of Cheval Blanc St-Barth is its location, perched directly on the edge of Flamands Beach, one of the largest beaches on the island. Guests can easily access the shimmering turquoise waters and white sand, as it is just steps away from both pools as well as the hotel’s popular beach restaurant, La Cabane, and La Case, an “ode to the Caribbean” from the hotel. famous chef Jean Imbert.

While Cheval Blanc and St. Barth as a whole have plenty to offer, it can be hard to leave the comfort (and air conditioning) of the room. Designed by the famous Jacques Grange, each room of the House is the epitome of holiday happiness. Crisp white cottons, warm woods, bold colors and touches of rattan here and there create a stylish and welcoming abode, whether you’re staying right on the beach or in one of the garden bungalows.

I’m a hotel manager and my shower cap makes staying in a hotel so much easier Sat, 17 Sep 2022 10:55:51 +0000

David Antico took to Quora to share the hacks he learned as the manager of five hotels.

He said: “Whether you’re gearing up for the day, taking a midday break, or waking up at the end of the night, use these suggestions to make your travels a little easier.”

His first piece of advice was to make your bathroom double as a steam room.

He said: “When you travel your clothes are normally folded up and put in your bag.

“Allow the steam from the shower to remove wrinkles by hanging your clothes in the bathroom.”

Then he suggested a very practical alternative use for the free shower cap that is often left in your bathroom.

He said: “Hiking, walks in the rain and sandy toes are all part of the holiday experience.

“Put your dirty, wet, or salt-soaked shoes in the shower caps that come with your room.

“Keep the rest of your clothes clean by securing the beanie.”

His next tip was to use the coffee machine for more than just coffee.

He said: “The coffee maker is useful for more than making coffee in the morning.

“It can also be used to boil water for porridge or quick noodles.”

Finally, he offered a hanging trick to make sure your curtains are fully drawn and your bedroom is totally dark while you sleep.

He said: “It’s bad enough to wake up to an alarm, but it’s so much worse to wake up to blinding sunlight streaming through the gap in the curtains before your alarm went off.

“Use the hangers in your closet to prevent this. Secure the curtain gap with the clips you would normally use for pants or skirts.

“You’ll be well on your way to becoming a morning person after a good night’s sleep.”

Streaming the Magic shared a post by Joshua Keller, who checked into Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort after a 7-night cruise on Disney Fantasy. Keller wrote that 20-30 bugs were crawling around the room while recording. Initially, the front desk told Keller they would move his room, but later backtracked and said they would send a cleaner:

Having honeymooned at Disney for the past 2 weeks (staying at All Star Sports for 5 nights and a 7 night fantasy cruise) to be treated this way is brutal. As I actively type this, more and more bugs are continually crawling out of the vents and under the doors! I understand it’s that time of year, but they shouldn’t be in a “cleaned” room.
