The perfect braai – South African number 1 recipe

The word ‘braai’ is Afrikaans, originating from the Dutch word ‘braden’ which means ‘to roast’.

The perfect Braai

What’s cooking in South Africa? Well, how about the Perfect Braai?

Braai’s are a method of cooking meat in South Africa, a way to socialise and a way of life. 

The long cooking times allow South Africans to connect with their family and friends by sharing drinks and stories next to the fire. It can last for hours.

The perfect braai

The word ‘braai’ is Afrikaans, originating from the Dutch word ‘braden’ which means ‘to roast’.

So what can you cook and put on this perfect braai? Traditionally, you will braai boerewors, steaks, chicken, and other sausages. Anything goes, really

A traditional braai is cooked on local wood, while modern-day braai’s use charcoal instead, and both give the meat a distinct flavour. Using gas to cook doesn’t count as a real braai.

MSC Splendida to sail Saudi waters for the first time

November 28, 2022 –

Cruise Saudi, Jeddah Islamic Port and Yanbu Commercial Port welcomed MSC Splendida for its inaugural visit to Saudi ports, as part of Cruise Saudi’s third cruise season which runs from November 2022 until May 2023.

MSC Splendida

Following global cruise traditions to celebrate a ship’s inauguration visit to a port, plaque and key exchange ceremonies were held. The first was at Jeddah Islamic Port on Wednesday, November 23, in the presence of MSC Splendida’s captain, Chief Legal and Governmental Affairs Officer at Cruise Saudi, Dr. Hani Gharbawi, and officials from The Saudi Ports Authority (Mawani); and the second was held at Yanbu Commercial Port on Thursday, November 24. Throughout this season, the ship will make weekly calls at both Jeddah and Yanbu Ports, on 3, 4 and 7-day cruise itineraries, which also include Egypt and Jordan.

The visits are in line with Cruise Saudi and Mawani’s goals to establish a fully integrated, world-class cruise industry in Saudi – an additional arm to the country’s flourishing tourism industry – and to transform the country into a premier global cruise destination. This season marks Cruise Saudi’s third official season and will welcome 75+ scheduled calls from ships from five global cruise lines.

With a capacity of 4,300 passengers and 1,000+ crew members, MSC Splendida has a myriad of activities and facilities available for guests including four swimming pools, a jogging track, a squash court and gym as well as the MSC Aurea Spa and a sun deck which offers stunning views of the sea.

Dr. Hani Gharbawi commented on the arrival of the ship: “We are pleased to welcome MSC Splendida to Saudi – the fourth ship from MSC Cruises to sail Saudi waters since Cruise Saudi launched the industry less than two years ago. We look forward to welcoming more renowned global cruise ships and passengers to discover and experience Saudi – the newest player in the cruising arena – by land and sea as part of our newly launched season. The country’s breathtaking natural beauty, rich cultural heritage and historical wonders make it a must-visit destination for travelers – and we are proud to open a new gateway to share Saudi’s story with the rest of the world.”

Cruise Saudi previously welcomed three other MSC cruise ships to sail Saudi waters: MSC Orchestra kicked off the winter season last week, MSC Virtuosa visited earlier this year and MSC Bellissima was the first ship to homeport from Jeddah Islamic Port’s cruise terminal in July 2021.

In addition to MSC Splendida, the following ships are scheduled to call at Saudi ports during the ongoing season: MSC Orchestra, MSC Sinfonia, Silversea Silver Spirit, Residences at Sea’s The World, Viking Neptune, Silversea Silver Cloud and Fred. Olsen Bolette.

Since its launch in January 2021, Cruise Saudi – in conjunction with Mawani and other local and governmental entities – has equipped three ports in Saudi (Jeddah, Yanbu, and Dammam) with the required infrastructure to receive cruise ships. The company has operated two successful seasons in 2021/2022 and welcomed 50,000+ local and international passengers (from 80+ nationalities), ships from four global cruise lines that conducted 70+ sailings.

JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort

JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites opens with 52 keys

JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort

JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites opens with 52 keys

November 25, 2022 –

JW Marriott announced the opening of the JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites, an all-suite luxury retreat nestled in a beautiful beachside setting on southern Thailand’s Andaman coast. The resort’s 52 stylish two-bedroom suites range from 89 to 111 square meters with bright indoor and outdoor spaces, Southern Thai-inspired design, contemporary living areas and private terraces or balconies that overlook the natural tropical surroundings. On the ground floor, a collection of pool access suites allows guests to step straight into the inviting 2.4 km-long lagoon swimming pool, Southeast Asia’s longest.

JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort

JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites shares the extensive facilities of JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa, and is located in the box seat for family activities, overlooking the new Aqua Play Zone, an exhilarating destination for families and where the water fun, literally, lasts all day long. Highlights include the wave pool where kids and families get the chance to duck and dive before heading over to the fountain trampoline, an inventive activity designed for, what else, jumping!

The aqua theme continues with a waterslide and outdoor playground before kids and parents can retreat to the Sala Restaurant & Bar, a cool, casual outlet serving comfortable, familiar and healthy classics. Sala is expected to quickly become basecamp for kids during their stay so they are close to the action – and can take part in the daily pasta making, mixology masterclasses and marshmallow roasting held at Sala.

Friends and family can also have a go at Muay Thai Sea Boxing, a hilarious but highly competitive sport where two boxers sit astride a poll and try to knock each other off. One of many other activities available are helping the environment in the Art of Trash workshop, or guests can simply cruise around the 2.4 km pool on their floating hammocks, grabbing an ice-cold fresh coconut on the way courtesy of the resort boats that ply the waters – before catching a movie at the beach. Alternatively, families can enjoy a beach picnic in our family tents – or enjoy the interactive Teppanyaki Show at Sakura Japanese restaurant.

The resort’s collection of 11 restaurants and bars offer an array of dining choices, ranging from traditional Thai cuisine with sunset views at Ta-Krai to authentic Italian cuisine at Olive, and international fare at Waterfront. New additions include Sala Restaurant & Pool Bar, while Drift Beach Bar & Grill is the resort’s new steak and seafood grill, inspired by regional Mediterranean cuisine. All-day refreshments and cocktails can be enjoyed at the Deli, Beach Bar, Infinity Pool Bar, Aquamarine Pool Bar and Czar Lobby Bar.

Family vacations are all about reconnecting with your loved ones, and a key ingredient for this is the JW Garden, an outdoor space dedicated to cultivating organic vegetables and herbs. Here families are guided by the resort’s chef to pick fresh ingredients and learn how to cook Thai dishes. Alternatively, guests can enjoy a family picnic among the fragrant herbs and flowers, or even in the privacy of their own suite or villa.

The unique Suites experience also provides access to state-of-the-art meeting facilities, a fully-equipped fitness center, tennis and squash courts, the Kids Club and Quan Spa, which offers holistic healing therapies from traditional Thai massages to revitalising body wraps and scrubs, many of which use organic coconut oil produced onsite at the resort. A series of serene spaces such as cozy cabanas let guests reconnect and create memorable moments, whilst Khuk Khak Beach offers an idyllic setting to stroll, splash or sit in the shade of palm trees.

“The opening of JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites, with its spacious accommodation and outstanding service co-located with the expanded and renovated JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa, provides the perfect accommodation option for families, young and old, enabling all guests to come together and create meaningful connections,” said Jakob Helgen, area vice president – Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia & Myanmar, Marriott International.

“I am delighted to unveil JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites and to welcome travelers from around the world,” said Abhimanyu Singh, general manager, JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort Suites. “The JW Marriott brand focuses on what matters most in life, connecting with our loved ones and enriching the mind, body and spirit.”

Meliá Albania, a new jewel in the mediterranean for Meliá Hotels International

Meliá Albania

Meliá Albania, a new jewel in the mediterranean for Meliá Hotels International

November 24, 2022 –

Meliá Albania, the last undiscovered jewel in Europe. The hotel company trusts in the tourist potential of the area and is fully committed to leading the development of the international hotel sector, as it already did in other pioneering destinations in the Mediterranean.

Meliá Albania

In the words of Gabriel Escarrer, Executive Vice President and CEO of Meliá Hotels International, “after seeing first-hand the enormous potential of this country, as well as the commitment of its public and private sectors to open the doors to international tourism, I am convinced that that we are going to start a new success story in the Mediterranean and I am very grateful for the trust that our partners in the country have placed in our company to make this dream possible”. The Spanish company wants to ensure its presence in the most important destinations in Albania and opens the door to further expansion, which would make the country one of Meliá‘s strongholds in the Balkans and consolidate its leadership in the Mediterranean.

Among its projects, the future Gran Meliá Albania stands out , a 5-star luxury hotel with 125 rooms that will open in 2025 as part of an iconic architecture project in the very heart of the city. Gran Meliá Tirana will be the flagship to consolidate the company’s recognition in Albania, which with the arrival of the brand’s first hotel will bring the best luxury experience to the country. In Dürres, the second largest city in Albania and whose beach is the most visited in the country, Meliá will open two hotels in 2023, the Meliá Dürres and the Sol Tropikal Dürres .

The first will be an extraordinary five-star holiday resort on the Gjiri I Lalzit beach, with 455 rooms and 10 villas, as well as an extensive offer of complementary services. Together with the Meliá Dürres property, Concord Investment Group, Meliá Hotels International hopes to mark a before and after in the hotel offer in the area with this hotel, offering the quality and attributes of Meliá Hotels & Resorts, one of its best-known brands. The second, 8 kilometers from the city center, will be the result of the remodeling of the current Tropikal Resort, to which two new buildings will be added, forming a modern vacation complex on the beach with a total of 383 rooms, of which 180 will be available in 2023 and the rest will be progressively included. This property, owned by FT Management & Events, also hopes to become, thanks to the Sol by Meliá brand, one of the best holiday options in Dürres.

Muzsa Budapest Budapest – stunning art-deco bar launches new coloured theme menu

Muzsa Budapest

Muzsa Budapest – stunning art-deco bar launches new coloured theme menu

November 21, 2022 – Muzsa Budapest the stunning Art Nouveau cocktail bar of Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest, has unveiled its new colour themed menu. Aptly named “COLOROID,” every cocktail was carefully crafted by Head Bartender Ádám Rédli, who envisioned a menu where colours and flavours combined would take mixology to a whole new dimension. Elegant and refined, yet modern and playful, Muzsa Budapest has become the gold standard for craft cocktail experience in the city.

“After a very successful first menu, we knew we had a big challenge ahead of us. I wanted to take the craft cocktail experience to a new level, but still retaining the playfulness that our original cocktails are known for,” says Ádám Rédli, Head Bartender. “I’ve always been interested in the origins of colour, and I knew it was a theme that we would one day explore on our menu.”

The name of the menu is paying homage to the work of Hungarian professor Antal Nemcsics, who over the course of two decades developed the Coloroid Colour System, a colour-order system used by architects and visual constructors.

Consisting of 15 colours masterfully interpreted both visually and through flavours, the cocktails are divided into three eras and are paired with unique menu descriptions designed to stir the imagination. The eras are Chromatic Dawn, Golden Age and Luminous Horizons, each with five cocktails that narrate their own origins. Every cocktail is made with a different spirit and combined with the finest locally-sourced ingredients to provide unique flavour profiles ranging from umami to bittersweet to low ABV.

Muzsa Budapest

In the Chromatic Dawn, Muzsa Buapest’s cocktails pay tribute to the very first pigments and ancient dyes. The signature drink, Dragons Blood, is a modern take on the traditional whisky cocktail, Old Fashioned. Its bitter and nutty taste is provided by MÚZSA’s macadamia malt and maple, cherry herring and melon verjus.

In the Golden Age, the new-wave spirit-based cocktails are like a meeting with the divine. Its signature drink, the Martini-style Sunglow, is a sublime concoction made with pisco, saffron and edible gold, making it the most glamorous of all and with a characterful flavour.

The Luminous Horizons showcases the visible light spectrum; under the ethos of sustainability, using cutting edge mixology and technology are created the most adventurous cocktails on the menu. The signature drink, Cobalt, with its striking shade of blue promises to be the picture-perfect drink served in the iconic poppy head shaped glass. It’s a low ABV drink made with Szechuan button, jasmine and lemongrass and poppy, with fruity flavour notes.

Executive Chef Árpád Győrffy brings an exciting new selection of sophisticated bar food offerings such as Tofu and Avocado, Spicy Prawn Miso Soup, Wagyu Tataki and Mangalica Tonkatsu. Everything is presented on bespoke hand-painted Herend Porcelain sets. The menu, featuring small plates and tapas style bites, is designed for sharing.

With its inspired atmosphere to enjoy colourful cocktail creations, an exciting blend of Asian and Hungarian cuisines, and a diverse mix of local authentic live entertainment, MÚZSA portrays the best of Hungary’s rich cultural and culinary heritage.
