Revisits are not typically our thing. More likebeen there done that moving on to see what is next ..but The Filadelfia Coffee Resort in Antigua, Guatemala was too tempting to pass up for another long holiday weekend.

The PERFECT Holiday
My GF and I were lucky enough to spend four nights in Phinda Mountain Lodge followed by four nights in Phinda Forest Lodge (we won 2 four night auctions and combined them) in May this year.
We flew overnight from Heathrow with BA to Johannesburg where we stayed at The DOreale Grande for a night. The hotel was running an American Express Card Holders promotion so we were picked up on arrival by a limo and taken to the hotel (only a 5 min ride).

But now for my experience of the LL property we used :Zanzibar Kempinski which we stayed in for five nights.
Just returned from a fantastic trip to Guatemala. This was our third trip to Guatemala and it keeps getting better. We arranged our land transportation with Elizabeth Bell's company, Antigua Tours. Elizabeth is fantastic and offers great trips in the Guatemala area. All of her drivers are prompt, efficient, and truly excited about their country. Our first stop was to Montericco; a beach town on the Pacific. It is not a tourist destination...yet. We were told that it is mainly visited by Guatemalans
Skiing Les 3 Vallees - Val Thorens, France
We have been skiing in Val Thorens, France, for a number of times. We knew the FitzRoy as much more than just a Hotel. It was a Landmark in Val Thorens. Not only was it the only 4-star Hotel in the Resort but it's the highest one in Europe at nearly 2300 m. When LL put the Hotel Le FitzRoy on its auction list, we were thrilled and we auctioned and won the package. We knew the property as a top of the line Relais&Chateaux
