Welcome to JarvisMarcos.com, a thorough and extensive database of my travel reviews.
I fly over 100,000 miles per year in First and Business class cabins and review every new product that I try. Similarly, I review almost every luxury hotel and airport lounge that I set foot in
I book the majority of my travel using sales, promotions and a variety of other tricks - often leveraging the power of hotel points and airline miles. If I use a special technique of any kind to book a travel experience, I'll mention it in the review.
This means that hopefully you'll have all the tools you need to book your own amazing trips too!

When one man, for whatever reason, has the opportunity to lead an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself.
The main service was chaotic, no doubt about it. However, the dine on demand really came into its own when I wanted to set my own schedule and here, much like at the bar, the service was sincere, friendly and professional.
The lounge is so quiet, cavernous and awe inspiring that it doesn't feel like a space in which to kick back and have fun. If you're expecting the Virgin Clubhouse you'll be disappointed. It is however one of the most striking and interior spaces I've ever spent time in. The calm and tranquility is a world away from the airport terminal below
The drive from Ubud to Uluwatu took around 1.5 hours, passing the airport and continuing to the far southern cliffs of Bali.
Alila Villas Uluwatu are quite well hidden, seeing the sign from the road you'd have no idea that a resort of this calibre was hidden at the end of the narrow, twisting road.
One of my favourite things about travelling far away is that there are always going to be residual elements of jetlag. You may wake up thirsty at 5am, have a sip of water and suddenly feel like you can't get back to sleep.
"What's good about that"? You may well ask yourself.
Sunrises in bed. That's what.
Staying here actually feels like an exciting architectural experience, just like Alila Uluwatu, albeit without the wow factor of the sunset cabana and the sliding walled villas. To live within the confines of such considered design is a truly wonderful thing.
