Our short stay in Doha had us coming in to check out the brand new Westin Doha Hotel and Spa in Doha, Qatar.

With this in mind, we ended up in comfortable but familiar Nusa Dua resort area of Bali, Indonesia. Our stay at the Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali was everything we would have expected from a stay at in Nusa Dua; a hotel with comfortable rooms, a safe… Read More

For our overnight stay in New Delhi, we had a very short one day stay prior to our travels home. Instead of going for a higher end property, we ended up at the ITC Maurya for a quick stay in New Delhi. While it was not as exotic as The Leela Palace, it was more than reasonable at a far lower price point. Hotel Review: The ITC Maurya, A Luxury Collection Hotel,… Read More
