Destination Expert at the Western & Oriental
After travelling to Belize, New Zealand and Thailand after university I started a career working in the city. However, I soon realised I had an obsession with travel and quickly changed my career path to work within the industry. Since then I have travelled all around the world visiting spectacular countries and staying in some of the very best luxury hotels.
Where I have travelled recently
My passion lies in South East Asia but I have always wanted to do a USA road trip. This summer I did a self drive from Los Angeles up the stunning Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco and across to Las Vegas. I stopped in Yosemite National Park which has some of the most stunning scenery I have ever seen. I was also recently lucky enough to spend my birthday in Dubai at Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa and the amazing Banyan Tree Al Wadi in the Desert.
Most Memorable Experience
It is so hard to choose just one! Cruising through Ha Long Bay in Vietnam on a Chinese junk boat was as spectacular as you would imagine. Climbing to the summit of Mount Kinabalu in Borneo and going inside one of the world’s largest caves in Gunung Mulu National park was an amazing experience.
My Favourite Destination
I absolutely love the beaches of the Caribbean but for me Malaysia has everything! You can trek into jungle or climb mountains in Borneo, relax on a stunning beach in Langkawi or Tioman and gorge yourself on delicious Malay food in Malacca.
My Favourite Accommodation
My favourite hotel has to be Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort in St Lucia. It’s set between the two iconic Pitons with a white sand beach and rainforest clad mountains and is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. I was lucky enough to stay in a Grand Luxury Villa which has a private pool and the whole experience was incredible.
