Travel Tuesday | Thinking Pink - Mama Kelly, Amsterdam

 
MAMA KELLY

 

Today's Travel Tuesday isn't about sleeping, it's about eating... eating at the renowned Mama Kelly in Amsterdam. 

Surrounded by a sea of pink and all things glam, Mama Kelly's menu is simple - Lobster or Chicken... so if lobster, chicken or pink isn't your thing then this place isn't for you! 

MaMa Kelly Amsterdam seats 230 guests and is located in an old cigarette factory in Olympisch Stadion in Amsterdam’s outskirts. Mama Kelly's success has been largely through modern marketing techniques, such as Instagram... because if this isn't the most Instagram worthy restaurant you've ever seen then I don't know what is! 

Mama Kelly also has a secret bar... and it's the only part of the restaurant that's not pink, definitely a challenge to see if you can find it!

Glamping in India!

 

In Rajasthan, India, Aman-i-Khás, a camp of 10 canopied tents, is perched on the edge of Rajasthan's Ranthambore National Park - India's sanctuary for wildlife and natural beauty.

The air-conditioned ‘tents’ have soaring six-metre-high canopies, elegant interiors, the most luxurious marble bath tubs and custom-made furniture, these tents are seriously divine – Glamping is the only word to describe them!

BOOK HERE

 
Aman-i-Khás x Dot + Pop
Aman-i-Khás x Dot + Pop
 

Gorgeous soft cotton curtains divide the beautiful space into sleeping/bathing/lounging zones. And the hot tip is that tent number one is the most private as it’s set the furthest away from the main camp! Fall asleep in your king bed, listening to the calls of the wildlife.

 
Aman-i-Khás x Dot + Pop
Aman-i-Khás x Dot + Pop
 

The Dining Tent cooks traditional Rajasthani cuisine, inspired by the royal kitchens of the Mughal emperors, with most meals created using vegetables and herbs grown in the camp's own organic garden. Lit by flickering candles at night, the Dining Tent has one large communal table and several smaller settings, but dinner is just as often served outside beside the roaring fire.

 
Aman-i-Khás x Dot + Pop
 

The pool is a sight to be seen, a sparkling oasis in the middle of the wilderness, a place for relaxation and rejuvenation or just an afternoon spent on a sun lounger. And once you are feeling refreshed pop over to the Lounge Tent where there is a wide selection of novels, magazines, games, and music or the Spa Tent, where Massages and treatments are available.

 
Aman-i-Khás x Dot + Pop
 

The fireplace is the camp's focal point, a large open plan and equally stunning space which is surrounded by cushioned banquettes for a relaxing evening taking in the stars, with a cocktail of course… afternoon G&Ts and post-dinner whiskies are poured in the Dining Tent and served around the fireplace each night.

Travel Tuesday | Tokyo Escape - Hoshinoya Hotel

Images courtsey of Hoshinoya Tokyo

 

Tokyo – one of my favourite cities on earth, a place for food, culture, people and history. And in the middle of the bright lights, swarms of people, shiny shopping malls and delicious restaurants is the most beautiful hotel – well more of an escape, Hoshinoyo Tokyo is divine.

Traditional in its approach but with modern features and a lot of luxury – it is a 5 star knock out in the centre of Tokyo. With 17 floors and 84 rooms (there is only approx. 6 rooms per floor), and with traditional elements such as its requirements to walk around the hotel and your room barefoot, we love that!

The top floor of Hoshinoya Tokyo consists of two bath halls, separated by gender. The baths are fed by hot spring waters drawn from 1,500 meters below the ground. Due to its high saline content, the bath water is pleasant to the skin, gently relaxing the body while improving its ability to preserve heat. Each bath hall contains an indoor and outdoor bath, connected by a cave-like tunnel. The outdoor bath is located at the bottom of an open-roof chamber with soaring walls that frame the sky above. Through the open roof, guests are presented with a private viewing of a dynamic tapestry painted with the ever-changing colours of the sky and decorated with clouds of many shapes. At night, pleasantly cool breezes blow in, bringing seasonal aromas with them.

There’s one feature that we love so much we had to share - every floor has a communal living room where attendants serve complimentary roasted green tea, sake, onigiri and miso-soup and for the night owls there is instant Ramen to curb your cravings, yay for that!

See Hoshinoya Tokyo here.

So to start us off, I welcome you to MACq 01, a hotel dedicated to sharing stories which rests on the Hunter St Pier Precinct in waterfront Hobart and coincidently my home state of Tasmania.

By design, the hotel invites a journey, designed in collaboration between The Vos Group developers, Circa Architects and Pike Withers interior designers. The rooms are designed with a neutral palette to showcase the original artworks by Tasmania artist Troy Ruffels which are on show in all rooms. These artworks set the overall tone of the rooms which are supported by other stunning design features, such as plush sofas, luxurious beddings and touches of Tasmania. Where possible, local designers and craftspeople were engaged for the internal fit-out, which is robust in character but serene in it's aesthetic.

The on site facilities will have you never wanting to leave. The Lounge which features an open fire, oysters and a stunning interior, valet parking, gym, butler services as well as wifi, in-room massages, dry cleaning, shoe shining, security safe, on-demand movies, games, minibar, tea and coffee and so much more!

But please make sure you get out and enjoy the neighbourhood. MACq 01 is nestled amongst Hobart’s premier precinct for art, design, food, fashion and more, you are a stones throw away from all that Hobart has to offer.
