'Tis the Season to be Jolly
There's something about the festive season that evokes warm, fuzzy feelings in all of us in the Exquisite Media team. The sparkling lights, the hearty food and the heartfelt singing of Christmas carols; it is the season to be spent with loved ones in a merry setting.
With that joyful inspiration in mind, we bring you the top destinations where you can spend the holiday, enhanced with plentiful themed offers and programmes. We also select some of the latest and most exclusive items that will make great Christmas gifts for the family, courtesy of world-famed brands like Aigner, Hublot, Burberry, Cartier, Dior, Tiffany & Co. and more.
We also take a look at the most enticing dining and drinking destinations in Jakarta and Bali, from BART in Jakarta, to the unique and beloved Cuca and the new Boy'n'cow in Bali. For an inspirational kick, we talk to some of the most respected general managers in the hospitality scene, from Cora Stuart of Keraton at The Plaza to Christiane Wasfy from Hotel Ciputra World Surabaya.
Since it is the holiday season, we'd like to take you exploring Asia, as well as on an escape from Asia. First we make a stop in Bintan Island, where Banyan Tree Group has just opened its latest property, before continuing to Samui in Thailand where you can get the complete package of luxurious stays, great food and amazing attractions. As the cherry on top, we head to the French and Swiss Alps for a mandatory year-end skiing holiday.
2017 has been a joyful ride with you, our esteemed readers, and we're looking forward to spending time with you in an even greater 2018!
