Merry Christmas to all, from the hotelnepal gang!

About Yasmine

Peace, love, gratitude ... plus, what's happening here in the new year.

It’s been an exciting year for us here at hotelnepal, where we’ve been enjoying the process of building a community/lifestyle magazine where you, our valued readers, feel you belong.

We'll have plenty for everyone in the new year.

On behalf of the gang here, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support as we’ve taken our first steps toward becoming your favourite online community.

We've gone from strength to strength since going live in October, with a loyal following since launch. And please, keep the feedback rolling in. This is your site and we love hearing from you.

In return, I can promise that there will be plenty for you to get excited about here in the new year.

For starters, the first of our YsShopping malls will open.

So if you or somebody you know (producers, creatives, existing retailers) could do with taking their business to the next level in 2017, now is the time to get on board with us.

You can read exactly why this may be the best opportunity for your business

We’re also in the process of recruiting bloggers so we can provide much more of the informed, expert opinion that you like right here at hotelnepal.

Existing bloggers and those who dream of sharing their voice can find out more about this great opportunity right here. You'd be mad not to take a minute to watch our two blogger testimonials.

We are also intent on rallying community support, fundraising and driving new volunteers toward the nation’s hardest-working charities and not-for-profits. If this sounds like you, then drop me an email here at [email protected]

So please, keep us firmly in your sites in the new year, check out our hotelnepal page on Facebook and if you like what you see, why not follow us there. For those interested in blogging, you can keep up to date with developments via our YsBlogger Facebook page.

Also, it's free to sign up to become a member (you'll become one of our YsOnes), for plenty of special discounts and offers in the new year. If you do it before December 31, you'll also go in the draw to win a dinner for two (WA only).

In the meantime, as we take a week off to recharge the batteries for the new year, may I offer you and yours, with the utmost sincerity, the most joyous and safe Christmas imaginable.

Peace to all, happy travels and we’ll see you in the new year,
