Hotel Review: InterContinental Singapore — travelux

The InterContinental Singapore is a luxury hotel with a historic setting in the heart of town. In this extensive review, I’ll explain why staying here is a good choice, but why I still wouldn’t consider the hotel to be particularly special.

Singapore is an interesting city for a couple of reasons. As a business and leisure destination, there are tons of different luxury hotels with the InterContinental being one.

  • Classification: Five Stars
  • Room Category: Deluxe Room
  • Month of Stay: January

There’s actually even a second InterContinental (Robertson Quay) in the city, which is the newer of the two. The “original” InterContinental Singapore is located in the city center, a good 10 minutes walk away from the bay. Thus, I’d say that the location is quite good, so are the rates usually.

Island time on Pine Island, Florida — Littles Adventures

After a long, cold New England winter, the warm Florida sunshine is the type of vacation we needed! Even though we’ve visited Florida a number of times, we’ve never spent time on the Gulf coast. After doing some research my husband and I settled on Pine Island for the first stop of our stay. I came across Pine Island while looking at Airbnb on Sanibel Island and kept seeing homes listed on Pine Island. After doing my research I found that Pine Island was more laid back, not as touristy and less expensive than Sanibel. We were sold!

Where to stay

There are a few hotels when you first arrive on the island in Matlacha. We ended up booking an Airbnb in St. James City which is located on the south part of the island. Our Airbnb was nothing but perfect. It was located in an adorable community, located right on the water.(Use my Airbnb code to get $40 off your home booking and get $15 to use toward an experience worth $50 or more.)As soon as we walked in the door, we immediately felt like we were on a island vacation. The owners have everything you could need; kayaks, bikes, beach towels, fully stocked kitchen and washer and dryer. I could not recommend a better place! We enjoyed taking walks around the island in the morning, there is nothing quite like waking up to a water view.

Eco-Conscious Travel: Where to Stay — tinycaravan

Eco-conscious travel part two: tips on how to be more mindful when choosing where to stay.

As we continued to do our research, we found that finding a sustainable place to stay is not the most simple task. Sustainable accommodations are made available at larger hotels, but we also wanted to take into account the local environment, community, and economy. There are lots of factors that go into making your stay in a country a bit more green, and while we have a few suggestions, we suggest that you continue your research with the specifics from each place you decide to visit.
