This is one of the best bases for your tropical Queensland escape, and of course, make time to visit the Great Barrier Reef.

It is nestled among the eclectic mix of heritage and modern buildings in the heart of Sydney’s CBD.

It’s time to disconnect from the mundane and the beaten track and reconnect with something pristine and wild in WA.

An adventure awaits everyone, whether it’s a gourmet Margaret River Wine Tour, a Perth escape, an epic Perth getaway with Rottnest Island, or a journey that includes a Nornalup Inlet cruise and exploration of Perth and Fremantle.

It’s time to plan your next getaway to Singapore and stay at one of the tallest hotels in Southeast Asia – Swissôtel The Stamford.

Embark on an epicurean fun and entertainment journey in Swissôtel’s 13 restaurants and bars, including Kirk Westaway’s JAAN, awarded with two Michelin stars. Be well located in the heart of Singapore with City Hall Mass Rapid Transit train station and other major modes of transport on your doorstep.

Go to Indonesia and stay in an ocean-view suite at Anantara Uluwatu Bali. This is where you’ll discover a slower pace of life at the southern tip, where the luxury resort unfolds on a dramatic bluff overlooking the Indian Ocean.

The retreat enchants with suites and villas that cascade down the cliff to the famous Impossible Beach below, where you can ride the waves. While away from the crowds, explore cliff-top temples, hidden beaches, and some of the world’s best surf breaks.

When in Thailand, discover Katathani Phuket Beach Resort which is perfectly positioned 850 meters from Kata Noi Beach, which is claimed to be Phuket’s most beautiful Beach with crystal clear waters.
