The Kartika Plaza Hotel is in the South Kuta area of Bali and is managed by Discovery Hotels and Resorts
The Hotel Borobudur in Jakarta sounds well located and has the added advantage of being set in a green oasis with the only Olympic size pool in the city. Contact them at www.hotelborobudur.com
If you have any questions contact Leilani Merilo their Director of Sales and Marketing on [email protected]
I would have no doubt choosing the Shangri La hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for a top end luxury stay.
Their hugely helpful sales director is Yip Lai Fong and may be contacted at [email protected]
I would also recommend the Shangri La‘s hotels in Kota Kinabalu, both the Rasa Ria and the one in Tanjong Aru sound magical.
Another hotel chain that really impressed me was the Sofitel Group who told me about their hotels in Los Angeles, Chicago (a Sofitel Ledgend hotel) and Washington DC. The softly spoken Director of Sales for their Los Angeles property Bill Hanley was extremely knowledgeable and refreshingly helpful.
And if you still have a few days for a short break once you’re back in Dubai I would try the Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit. www.sofitel.com and a big Thanks to their Director of Sales for the South East Asia and India Anthony Slewka-Armfelt.
I have to mention the Zuri Group who have a gorgeous property in Kenya, I’ve been to their Diani Reef on the Southern coast and would also recommend their Ayurvedic spa at the tropical Zuri Kumarakom as a perfect base to explore Kerala’s backwaters.
Zuri are a member of Preferred hotels and resorts and their senior marketing person Shobu Mathew can be reached at s[email protected]

And as usual do mention DoinDubai if you do go to any of these places ! Remember these are just my recommendations and genuine views of the people and organisations I met. DoinDubai is not affiliated in any way with these hotel groups.
Wishing all my readers a great set of holidays for the coming summer and all year round !
