For the last few days, a news has been doing rounds on the internet that Ananda in the Himalayas could be one of the destinations Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might consider for their honeymoon post the royal wedding celebrations. While the news is not confirmed yet, we would want them to come to India but before that let us take you through a pictorial journey of one of the most luxurious and holistic resorts in the world.

Brijrama Palace Hotel – a royal affair in Varanasi

Nestled on the Darbhanga Ghat in the holy land of Varanasi, also known as Benares and Kashi, is the Brijrama Palace, a 200-year-old structure restored to its original glory two years back. It took the current management nearly two decades to restore the abandoned structure. As soon as I entered the hotel, the grandeur and ambience left me spellbound. The interiors are carefully done with beautiful antiques and exude serenity. Here is a pictorial journey of the majestic Brijrama Palace. The

Andy’s Boutique, a home away from home for Mumbaikars

City breaks are always great but what's even better is ditching the crowd and concentrate on something that is perhaps not so rustic. So here’s a good news. On the northwest coast of Mumbai in the Madh Island a young brain, who gets an utmost pleasure in shaping up the best possible facilities for his guests, Andy, has designed the extravaganza boutique hotel called Andy's Boutique. It's a weekend getaway resort, built in the middle of nature. There's just not

Stanmore Garden Bungalow: A Slice of Heaven

Nestled in the picturesque hill station of Valparai is the Stanmore Garden Bungalow, under the ownership of Briar Tea Bungalows. The journey towards Stanmore is equally delightful as the property itself. The theme for Stanmore Garden Bungalow is the Plantation Evolution and the nostalgia that surrounds it. It has a very spacious compound. From the Stanmore compound, you can have a spectacular 360-degree view of the tea plantation and the surrounding hills. Yet another fantastic view is that of the

A day spent at Koolwal Kothi, Nawalgarh

The Koolwal Kothi is an impressive heritage building in Nawalgarh. Its monumental facade blends traditional and European elements. Constructed in 1934, during the time of Anandilal Ji Hemraj Ji Koolwal, it has a magnificent facia with a series of tasteful rooms organised around a central hall. This deviates pleasantly from traditional courtyard house planning of the region. The city of Nawalgarh was founded by Nawal Singh, the fourth of the five brothers in 1737 AD on an existing village of Kaimkhanis.

Property Visit: Radisson Blu Udaipur Palace and Spa

Travel changes you as a person, bringing in you requisite modesty and a spirit of adventure. With these words in my heart, I planned a trip to Udaipur. The city of lakes turned out to be more than my expectations so much so that it left an indelible mark on my spirit. My day 1 started from Chandigarh. I had to attend a few imperative meetings in Delhi, so I decided to take a halt. I had an early morning flight from

Weekend Getaway At The Phaltan’s Jakson Inns

After a six-hour-long drive from the city of Mumbai is a small rustic town called Phaltan. Right there, situated just off the highway is India’s first LEED GREEN Platinum Rated Hotel, Jakson Inns. Hidden in a faraway village, Jakson Inns may look like an average no-frill bed-and-breakfast inn, at first sight. A closer look would reveal it's an extensive property spreading across six acres of land, so spacious and airy that it would give a quintessential Mumbaikar a much-needed relief from

A Golden Time At Golden Tusk

Jim Corbett National Park, in Uttarakhand, is one of my favourite places to go to. This year for my summer vacations, my mother and I with her friend and her son stayed in a resort named The Golden Tusk. We went to Ramnagar by train from Old Delhi Railway Station. I was so excited to see an open jeep with 'The Golden Tusk' written on it waiting for us at the station. We reached around 9 in the night and
