ILTM Americas: 2016 bigger than ever  

Once again I feel honoured to have been a VIP Media in ILTM Americas in Mayakoba (Mexico). The perfect meeting place for luxury hotels, unique destinations and buyers. The figures:
- 300 exhibitors fom 41 countries
- 300 hand-picked hosted buyers from 135 cities across Canada, Mexico and US, a 16% year on year increase
- 71% of these buyers were completely new to the ILTM experience and 
come from outside LA, New York and Mexico City
- A total of 15,000 one-to-one business appointments took place throughout the event

St Regis Singapore, refined luxury in the shopping area

The St. Regis experience begins when you arrive at Changi Airport:  A luxurious St. Regis Bentley picked me up and drove me to the wonderful timeless elegant hotel. The hotel has 299 rooms & suites and features over 100 original art works by world-famous artists such as Botero, Gehry & local artists.
I truly loved my Executive Suite with hand-painted silk wallpaper and king-sized bed robes with signature linen, and the signature standing alone bathtub!
Do not miss a meal in the award-winning Yan Ting restaurant offering Cantonese food. Truly delicious.
The  amazing Remède Spa offers individualized experiences, it includes sensorial lounge with an aquarium, heated wave loungers and Finnish cedar wood sauna. Among the most notable services are pedicure treatments designed by world-renowned French pediatrist Bastien Gonzalez. On my top of luxury hotels in Singapore.

Park Hyatt Saigon, the luxurious Vietnamese essence

Elegance & history translated into the best luxury hotel in Saigon: 244 colonial-inspired rooms in the heart of the city. The urban sophistication of the interior décor redefine urban luxury, blending sophisticated design and décor with the latest modern comforts. I loved Square One, the Vietnamese Restaurant where I enjoyed a truly feast of local food. The Park Lounge is the place where local gather and enjoy the sweets and chocolate by the awarded Korean Pastry Chef Narae Kim.
The huge pool is perfect for instagram pics and the Xuan Spa, is a tranquil urban retreat offering treatments inspired in local products obtained in the Mekong Delta.

To arrive to Vietnam I flew with SilkAir, entering via Danang & flying back from Ho Chi Minh with Singapore Airlines.

For my transportation to and from the Barcelona airport I always use Abaser Barcelona, my preferred limousine service in town.
