Luxury Hotels


What’s the buzzword been this January? Authenticity, the real thing.  In this growing world of fake, real becomes all the more important.

There’s a fascinating Netflix programme about fake news and manipulation of elections, and how Brexit was ‘faked in’.

Let us go REAL. You cannot fake Northern Lights, as above, at Octola Private Wilderness & Spa in Finnish Lapland. It’s a 600-ha estate owned by F1 World Champion Mika Häkkinen.  This is REAL There’s a 19-room hotel and a two-bedroom villa. Bliss, to get away from fake and watch the Northern lights (best time, by’ the way, is February and March).
