My favourite part of any holiday is the moment where you arrive at the beach, kick off your shoes, feel the sand in your toes and just completely relax. Whether it’s in the Caribbean, Africa or Asia no holiday is complete without some R&R time at the beach.
Born in South Africa, raised in England, and now a permanent resident of the United States, I have been fortunate enough to spend a large portion of my life exploring the world. I first fell in love with the Asia Pacific region when I spent 6 months as a student at Victoria University of Wellington, in New Zealand. Whether it was indulging on soft shell crab in Indonesia, sky diving in Taupo, or hiking in Fiji, my days were spent discovering everything Oceania had to offer.
Since then I have raced through Japan by bullet train, soared to the tallest building in the world in Dubai, and explored the depths of the Great Barrier Reef while night diving in Australia, but there is still so much left to do. From bustling cities to private beaches let me help you create your dream vacation to the continent that truly does offer it all.

Why a Stay at Amanemu Needs to be Added to Your Bucket List
Favourite places I've been
Travel with socks in your hand luggage. If you’re on the plane and your feet are cold, you probably won’t sleep.
If you find yourself in Dubai, watch the sunset from the top of the Burj Khalifa. There is something magical about seeing the setting sun over this glamorous playground from the tallest building in the world.
Don’t be afraid to ask your guide for advice. Chances are they know a great local spot off the beaten track where none of your friends have been before!
If your medical limitations and dietary requirements permit, step out of your comfort zone and be a yes (wo)man. You never know what new experience or delicacy might become your favourite thing.
Be selfish! Whether it’s stopping for food or spending an extra minute marvelling at the sights, this is your holiday and you never know when you’re going to be back! Enjoy yourself.
