Our favourite Goa beaches and how you can discover yours

I’m a beach kind of girl. Always have been. Obviously I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve been to Goa over the years, since it’s always been the go-to weekend beach destination for Mumbaikars such as us. A lot of Goa has changed over the years, and with it so have our favourite haunts. But there are some beaches that will always remain special to us. Our favourite Goa

Staying at the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong – An unmissable experience

To say that we’re fans of the Mandarin Oriental group of hotels would be an understatement. It is by far our favourite luxury hotel chain, and we’ve experienced their hotels across the world. What began at the erstwhile Mandarin Oriental Dhara Devi in Chiang Mai was then continued at the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur, the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok, the Mandarin Oriental Prague and most recently the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong.

Cathay Pacific Business Class Review – Life Well Travelled

Between the two of us, we’ve had our fair share of business class and premium economy travel on long hauls over the years. Most of my upgraded travel was when I was younger, so a lot has changed when it comes to J class travel, and I couldn’t wait to check out the much discussed new flatbeds on Cathay Pacific’s Business Class A 330. And what better way to do

Kaziranga National Park, India – Taking the safari by the horn

My breathing is loud, heavy and slow. My heartbeat thuds just as loudly, threatening to explode out of my chest. My hands have gripped the railing in front of my seat and my knuckles are white. They’re sweaty, and my fingers keep slipping off the rusted metal. I’m at the edge of my seat, ready to flee. But there’s nowhere I can flee. Right now, I’m in the safest spot

How to get the most out of Flights and Hotels

We love flights and hotels. We’ve said it often enough, and while we do enjoy our home in Mumbai, there’s something about enjoying a glass of champagne at 33,000 feet, or waking up on a lovely goosedown pillow in some exotic locale that just can’t be beat. Before you take off on me about the painful bits like lack of legroom, crying babies and noisy street facing rooms or musty

Diphlu River Lodge, Kaziranga – India’s secret luxury lodge

Dhiplu River Lodge, came highly recommended. By the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. As with each time we’ve gone on safari, it takes a bit of an effort to adjust our luxury expectations of a wilderness lodge in India, keeping in mind the remote location and that it’s open to the elements. But so far, we’d been lucky to have been pleasantly surprised every single time, and I didn’t want
