On our way back from Zanzibar to Germany, we were flying in the Oman Air regional Economy Class. While the flight wasn’t nearly full, it was still not very comfortable. The seat pitch in the modern Boeing 737 aircrafts is very tight, especially for such a long flight. In addition, the breakfast served wasn’t any good either. Only the entertainment system was great for a medium-haul flight. We’ll have a full review… Read More

Transportation in Wellington is relatively quickly explained. The city does neither have an underground system nor trams. Thus, the public transportation network of Wellington consists of buses and trolleybuses only. While KiwiRail offers a few-weekly train service from Wellington to Auckland, there are no major train services in the Wellington Area. The only exception is a five-line commuter rail network that connects Wellington with Paraparaumu in the North and Masterton as well… Read More

The Dhow Lounge Zanzibar might be the worst lounge I’ve ever been to. Small, old, weak food offerings. Yet, it’s still better than hanging out in the public area of the horrible Zanzibar Airport. At least, the opening of the new airport is on the horizon. So, there’s still hope. Stay tuned for an extensive review of the Dhow Lounge Zanzibar here on traveluxblog!

After four nights at the DoubleTree Resort Zanzibar, we decided to head to the DoubleTree Stone Town. The hotel is located in the historic center of Zanzibar City and has a very traditional charme. As the hotel is relatively young, the rooms are modern and very cozy. In addition, the food and beverage offerings are very good. Stay tuned for an extensive review here on traveluxblog!

This airline review features the Turkish Airlines Business Class in a Boeing 777. I had the pleasure of enjoying this typical long haul configuration on a medium haul flight from Istanbul to London. I’ll also release another review featuring the real long haul Business Class in an Airbus A330 shortly. Turkish Airlines offers a 2-3-2 configuration in Business Class onboard the Boeing 777. At first, that sounds like a horrible and even… Read More

After six days in Zanzibar, we bid farewell to the island and are on our way back home. The amazing beaches will definitely stick to our memory. Visiting Stone Town was also fairly interesting. Yet, I didn’t find the place to be especially fascinating. We’ll have a full review of Stone Town here on traveluxblog shortly!

The DoubleTree Resort Zanzibar Nungwi is the only Hilton family beach property on Zanzibar and has a brillant location. While we had an enjoyable holiday, we were not totally happy with the hotel. While quite nice overall, the food & beverage and the request compliance weren’t especially great. Stay tuned for an extensive review here on traveluxblog!

Novotel Sydney Central is one of many Accorhotels in the biggest city in Australia. We had just a very brief stay at the property. Thus, I’ll keep this review rather short. You can find more content about Sydney on our city page! After flying from Queenstown to Sydney with Air New Zealand, we arrived at Novotel Sydney Central in the early evening. The hotel is located a mere five minute walk away… Read More

For our flight from Muscat to Zanzibar, we opted for an upgrade through Optiontown. Thus, we ended up in the Oman Air regional Business Class, which was comfortable, yet not any special. The regional planes, mostly Boeing 737-800, are quite old and the product is outdated. The seats in Business Class are quite comfortable nevertheless and the iPad handed out for entertainment isn’t bad either. Yet, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend the Oman… Read More
