365 Days Of Accommodation: 2014 - 2015

Our third year of nomadic travel. The previous year we had a great compilation of all the places we stayed and due to popular demand here is our third installment.

We hope you enjoy our easy one-stop reference for your holiday inspiration.

Best Value: Royal Sun, Sunny Beach, Bulgaria

We saved a bundle by staying in Sunny Beach off season. This place came with 3 pools, a weekly cleaner and an onsite restaurant.


Most Unique: Camping Kautenbach, Luxembourg

During our time in Luxembourg we had the opportunity to glamp. A safari tent with beds and electricity was my kind of camping. 


Most Luxurious: The Athenaeum

In the heart of London is the glorious Athenaeum. This once-in-a-lifetime hotel is frequented by celebrities and will have you talking about it for the rest of your life. 


Most Beautiful: Samabe Bali Suites & Villas

Positioned atop a steep cliff with jaw-dropping panoramic sea views, private golf carts, personal butlers and mouthwatering food. This insanely beautiful resort complex effortlessly blends high-end luxury with Balinese charm.


Most Surprising: Sheraton Bali Kuta

The first time we opened the door to our hotel suite, we found framed photos of our family and themed cakes for our kids. The thoughtful staff read our blog and found out our kids favourite cartoon characters and designed the cakes accordingly. We were gob-smacked.

If you need accommodation in the same cities we’ve visited, below is a full list of all the places we have stayed in the last 365 days dating back from May 2014 until May 2015.
