The ultimate weekend for wine lovers as guru Felton Road winemaker Blair Walter tackles the big question of what’s truly important: Site or Winemaker? Over a fabulous weekend at The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs, Blair Walter will take guests through a unique tasting of Felton Road wines. He'll explore themes of site expression and house style in Felton Road’s single vineyard wines and the role the winemaker plays, or as the case may be, does not! Illustrated by pairs of wines from... Felton Road’s portfolio of single vineyard and single “block” wines, the importance of consistent house style in winemaking will become apparent. Will the nuances and subtleties of individual vineyard characters worthy of these individual bottlings be something to discuss and celebrate? After a comprehensive tasting and discussion, guests will no doubt learn from Blair as he challenges some traditional views on where character and quality derive from in fine wine. Robertson Lodges’ Felton Road Wine Weekends are always sell-out events, so we recommend getting in quick for this one! See more

When someone as #OutOfTheOrdinary as photographer Erin Quigley of goaskerin.com visits Laamu, it feels like things get even better than usual around here. Erin had a rare encounter of a leucistic manta ray at our resident manta cleaning point. She caught her at the safety stop, so unfortunately didn’t get an ID. Hopefully we see this mysterious manta again!

From the moment the doors opened in 1889, The Savoy has helped create memories for generations of guests and colleagues. Stolen glances across the dining rooms becoming beautiful weddings in the ballroom. Families gathered together for Afternoon Tea to celebrate special birthdays, graduations and anniversaries.

Thanks to Remote Lands, Inc. for mentioning our wonderful products👍👍 ‘Not every tub’s a stage, but in the Romance Suite at The Reverie Saigon, this one-of-a-kind is thanks to a strategically placed porter chair that’s capable of turning any sitter into a spectator. This tub is in a suite favored by honeymooners, and since deep tubs inspire long soaks, well, that porter chair makes practical sense. The tub itself is collared by Italian marble and embraced by lurid red mosaic tile. It’s deep enough, but perhaps what’s even more compelling is the mirror in the background. You’ve heard of an infinity pool. Well, here’s an infinity tub.’
