Welcome to The Travelling Munschkin’s luxury travel info centre, a one stop shop for the ultimate in luxury travel; accommodations, restaurants/nightlife, unique experiences and adventure plus the hottest deals around.

To some the epitome of luxury accommodations is 5*+ hotel/resort with impeccably designed rooms, avant-garde technology, luxurious amenities, Clef D’Or concierge service, and a celebrity chef. But, to others it consists of less while still retaining a luxury feel.

This section will be referring to accommodations designated as 4.5* and higher as per most rating systems. They are often part of The Leading Hotels of the World and other such designations. Preferred chains are the Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, the Starwood Group, JW Marriotts and Shangri-La to name a few. Fairmont Hotels may also be included from time to time due to their unique locations and original Canadian heritage, (Four Seasons Hotels/Resorts as well :) ).

Some of my favourites luxury hotels and resorts? Inkaterra, a luxury lodge in the Peruvian Amazon Jungle, the Westin Turnberry in Scotland, the Hyatt Regency in Kota Kinabalu, the Shangri-La in Nadi (Fiji) and Sydney as well as the Four Seasons Chiang Mai in Thailand, Nevis and Istanbul.

There is so much choice when it comes to luxury dining and one of a kind experiences and I hope this site will help you whittle down your choices and guide you in the right direction. Many restaurants will be Michelin designated, the most talked/written about and feature the hottest chefs. Experiences may be something you’ve never heard of or even thought possible. Live your best life by adding experiences that change you. The best way to find about them is to keep up with my tweets and Facebook page to receive the most up-to-date information.

Maybe reading my “Travel Tales,” and immersing yourself in a narrative adventure is what you’re looking for. Read about where I’m going and what I’m doing in the luxury travel world? How about swimming with humpback whales in Turks & Caicos, yachting in the South of France, luxury elephant trekking in northern Thailand (yes, it does exist!) and the best game reserves that Africa has to offer.

Perhaps you’re looking for a different style of vacation where you’ll mix and match budget with luxury, spending less on accommodations and more on unique experiences. Either way you’ll find everything you need here for your luxury travel needs.

Happy Reading!
