“The group of four I had out yesterday afternoon read about me on the Luxury Travel Diary! So thank you for featuring me!” – ToursByApril.

“I have been going to Bali twice a year since 2003, but have never visited the area of this resort. Always staying at the Four Seasons Sayan in Ubud and its sister hotel in Jimbaran Bay… I am actually going to add extra 4 nights to this stay so we can enjoy the place and the area. Winning this auction was a major factor in booking extra nights.” – guests of Plataran Menjangan Resort & Spa.

“I had a wonderful weekend at the Satri House. It is a beautiful hotel, with an excellent staff. Everything exceeded my expectations from the airport transfers to the beauty of the hotel. It was 2006 when last I was in Luang Prabang. I had forgotten what a lovely destination it is. Please pass on my thanks to all those involved in making last weekend a glorious one for me. I now look forward to my next auction win !” – Christopher

“Bambuddha restaurant had very stylish settings and the food was excellent!! The other prize I gifted to my sister for her birthday present and with her friend, they really enjoyed the dinner too! I’m sure I will be back at this restaurant!” – Robin

“I was very lucky to have won the winning bid for the ‘Private Butler for a Day’ Auction. Christopher and Thomas from Noble & Hitsch did an amazing job of looking after us for our cocktail party at home. They helped us set up for the party, prepare all the food and drinks, as well as serve our guests with the utmost professionalism. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a Butler in Hong Kong.” – Mrs Brewster
