    Chateau Saint Martin & Spa, France.

    Staying at a château in South of France has always been one of those things I had always wanted to do. When I had discovered Château Saint Martin, it was love at first sight and I knew I could not rest if I had not booked a few nights there. What was once a Knights Templar fortress in the 12th…

    Hôtel de Paris Monte Carlo

    When I think of Monaco, a few things come in mind : the grand collection of uncommon supercars that you don’t ever get to see in KL, the majestic grandeur of the Casino de Monte Carlo, the mega yachts (And here I thought, Dubai had it all), Grand Prix and of course, the glamorous men and women dressed in luxury…

    Glamping at Tiarasa Escapes

    I have always wanted to give glamping a try. It is the closest I could get to camping considering I am not an adventurous person and camping isn’t something I am particularly interested in. Having a good private shower is something I could not compromise. With that in mind, with a lot of photos of beautiful girls adorned in summer…

    Anantara Qasr Al Sarab, Abu Dhabi.

    I must say, like my other stays with Anantara, Anantara Qasr Al Sarab had offered us an experience like no other. There is something oddly magical about being in the midst of nowhere, amidst miles and miles of golden sea that stretches as far as your eyes could see. Being stranded in the desert has always been a nightmare no…

    Fun fact : That one party scene at the Indian palace from Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol was actually filmed at this very hotel. Jumeirah Zabeel Saray stands out as one of the most grandiose hotels with its ornately carved entrance and palatial façade. It makes you feel like you have just stepped into a palatial golden age of the Ottoman…

    I Am Here

    Just a few months ago, never would I have imagined that I would be sitting right here on a balcony overlooking the Arabian desert in Abu Dhabi. I came across pictures of this picturesque hotel months ago and had them saved on my Pinterest thinking maybe, someday. I did not expect that someday would have happened so soon. Traveling during…

    My trip to The Datai, Langkawi

    I am writing this in the midst of a 10-million-year-old rainforest – accompanied by the luscious green as well as the cacophony of insects and other mystical creatures. Occasionally, the trees will start dancing in the wind and other times, it is because of the little playful monkeys that would swing from one branch to another. The sounds and ambience…

    Everything You Need To Know About Positano

    I am sure you have seen aesthetically pleasing photographs of Positano everywhere on social media – the many-hued houses, the lemon trees, the ceramics and the picturesque view of the deep blue Mediterranean Sea from the balcony, beautiful restaurants’ terraces overlooking the view, women wandering around the streets in linen dresses and lounging at the beach in bikinis. It is…

    Ciao, Venezia – 8 Travel Tips for Visiting Venice

    Venice has got to be one of the most picturesque cities on earth. The colourful buildings, the narrow streets paved with archaic stones, the canal, the gondolas, the historic bridges, and the exquisite findings you might unravel when you wander aimlessly. Even so, because of its stature, an average of 25 – 30 million tourists frequented the city in a…

    Philippe – May 2019

    It was almost 40 degrees outside. “The heat has killed two people in France,” I overheard on the French radio. I could sense sweats trickling down my skin as I wheeled my luggage towards the train station under the summer heat. Our gestures moved with such familiarity after a week of being in Europe – finding the right platform, validating…
