Luxury hotels in Rajasthan, India

No place in India exemplifies the spirit of monarchy and the splendor of royalty better than the state of Rajasthan. The very name contains royalty: Raja translates to “king” and sthan refers to “place” in Hindi and other Indian languages. When the British left India, there were about two dozen princely states in the region, which merged into the new Union of India, along with other princedoms around the country. The erstwhile royalty was allowed to retain their properties and was granted an...

The most beautiful hotel pools

Hitting the hotel pool used to be little more than letting your kids blow off some steam while you got an overpriced drink in a plastic cup. But just as expectations for everything about hotels have been raised, so have the standards for hotel pools. Now, they’re an amenity up there with restaurants and fluffy robes, a place not only to cool off but also take photographs and make friends back home jealous. Hundreds of hotels and resorts around the world have added pools with views overlooking...

Luxury Trip to India – My Favorite Experiences

Although I’ve traveled to some fairly dodgy places around the world, for some reason the idea of traveling to India deeply intimidated me. Looking back at it now, I feel silly but at the time my concerns felt very real. Listening to stories from friends and family, traveling around India sounded daunting and I wasn’t sure if I was even up to such a trip. It wasn’t from a lack of desire, quite the opposite actually. I’d long ached to see not only the country’s famous landmarks, but I also wanted...

Udaipur, India – Surprises Any Visitor Will Love

Mumbai, Delhi and sure, even Jaipur – I had heard of all of these cities before leaving on my first trip to India, but Udaipur was different. It had never come across my radar before, a relative unknown and another Indian mystery I couldn’t wait to explore. Traveling with luxury tour operator Abercrombie & Kent, although my first introduction to India was in Mumbai, I feel like the first real introduction was in Udaipur. Mumbai is a mega-city and an intensely worldly one, but Udaipur is differe...

Incredible Palace Hotels of India Photo Series

An important aspect of any trip for me are the hotels and resorts that are my temporary homes. A truly great property is so much more than a simple place to spend the night, they become integral aspects of the trip itself and, many times, even create some of those incredible memories we take home with us. Traveling with luxury tour operator Abercrombie & Kent, I know that the hotels will always be amazing, but in India even I was surprised at the incredible quality of hotels across the country....

Join Me On An Extraordinary Journey To India With Abercrombie & Kent

Photo Source: Abercrombie & Kent Sometimes in life we connect emotionally with a company or brand. That would, I suppose, explain why I have a Diet Coke Christmas tree ornament. The same is certainly true in the travel experience, perhaps more so. Travel is emotional for so many reasons not only for the investment that we make, but thanks to the benefits as well. If done well, travel can be a transformative experience – sometimes dramatic, other times more slight. Travel is also an investment t...

These Hotels Are More Romantic Than The Notebook

Photo: Courtesy of the Springs Resort & Spa. Love is in the air — not just because Valentine’s Day is around the corner, but also because it's officially cuffing season. Between the seemingly endless winter, the post-holiday blues, and the decidedly tense political climate, getting away with the one you love has never seemed more appealing.But when it comes to planning an epic romantic escape, not all hotels are created equal. Sure, high thread count sheets and room service are nice. But if ...

Jaipur to Udaipur India: The Journey Is the Destination

It's a ten-hour drive from Jaipur to Udaipur in the Indian state of Rajasthan. Most first-time visitors fly from one to the other, if they go to Udaipur at all. But add another day or two to your itinerary and you'll benefit from a deeper dive into the smaller villages, where locals are happy to engage, and invite you into their generations-old family compounds where you'll gain a better understanding of the non-touristy side of this vast and diverse country. Things to Do From Jaipur to Udaip...

A Tuk-Tuk Tour of Udaipur India

Around 10am every morning, Rosie's cleaning lady, Ajju, comes to the apartment to clean the bathroom and make the bed (not necessary but definitely appreciated). Let me tell you about Ajju. She is probably four feet and maybe nine inches (makes me feel like a giant) and is the cutest, littlest, sweetest ball of energy I've ever met. I want to put her in my pocket. She knows about five words in English (which is far more than I know in Hindi) so communicating is a bit challenging but that doe...
