"I also suffered from observing every single fault, due to how expensive it was. Some points I'd have just ignored at other resorts, but not here"

Very astute comment, and it really is s/t that can put a damper when staying at fancier locations.

With less than stunning prices.
The truly wealthy can't be bothered taking photography lessons.

While the same holds true for the photos, I did write "prices" not pictures".

Some stunning hotels.

just the exterior and architecture look great. The interior and the comfort/cleanliness don't look so "5-Star".

Best bed ever is the St. Regis Monarch Beach king. Literally sleeping on a cloud. (Newly redone rooms have brand-new carpeting. No more old-mildewy wool area rugs.)

I regret this will be my last TR on FT. It's become quite labourious editing to flyertalk-specific code, and still getting chastised on rule after rule. Hope you'll continue to follow on my blog

Sad. Both him and SFO777 are stopping to write TRs on FT due to the crazy moderation going on there.

The heavy handed moderation on FT is breathtaking. I'm in final warning status :P
One link or on-topic joke and you get in trouble.
I don't blame them a bit.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Amazing photos in this TR: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/luxury-hotels/1769195-shangri-la-tokyo-mandapa-chedi-club-amanjiwo.html

Borobudur is an amazing place to see

Wow. What resort did he stay in there? Didn't spot the name of it.
