A few days of bliss is what all of us wish for and this time it was my trip to the holy city Amritsar that I was looking forward to. Well, I have been to Amritsar before but this time it was special because I was staying at Ranjit’s SVAASA, a Heritage Boutique Spa Haveli. The 250-year-old British Colonial Haveli of the Rai Bahadur Rattan Chand family has housed royalty and eminent personalities of all lineages.
A few days ago I was planning my trip to the holy city Amritsar. While I was looking forward to my time of bliss, I also had a lot of things running on my mind! Whenever we plan a vacation, on one side we have to finish all the pending stuff at work so that we can enjoy at ease but at the same time, we have our travel related things running on our mind – booking tickets, booking cabs, sightseeing plans, checking local transport, internet connectivity and not to forget web check-in and waking up on time. Ah! I wanted more hands or more hours in the day as I was going crazy thinking about all this! You will be surprised to know I managed everything with ease. Yes, I am back from my wonderful vacation that went on so smoothly! Want to know how? Read on to know more.
A trip to Thailand had been on my travel list for long. Afterall who doesn’t want to experience shopping that too on a shoestring budget along with some awesome sightseeing and some beachy fun! This New Year in the hope of fulfilling one of the many wishes that I have in mind, I booked my ticket to Thailand. The first destination on my travel was Bangkok.
A few days back I stepped into a hospital through a majestic gate in a lush green arena and entered my villa. No, I am not dreaming, this is reality! Everybody wants a getaway or a relaxing holiday away from the stress & hustle bustle of daily life. This time around I headed for a retreat to Kairali- The Ayurvedic Healing Village. It is actually a hospital built in a resort environment for holistic healing where treatments are done through Ayurveda! Isn’t that great! Formerly known as Kairali Ayurvedic Health Resort, the Kairali Ayurvedic Healing Village is flawlessly set in the scenic town of Palakkad known as the Gateway of Kerala, a jewel in this Southern state of India’s crown. The healing village boasts of rich flora & fauna, away from the city life where ChicLifeByte had a wonderful time!
It’s HOLIDAY time and we all want to just leave our base and roam around the world! Yes, that’s the feeling that most of us could relate to! Now, the big question is where to travel and how to travel because we all have different aspirations and different budgets but let me tell you something which will fit every aspiration and every budget!
Luxurious living has its own charm and when you travel you need all the amenities in a space which is a home away from home. Today I am going to tell you two of my favourite adobes where I can luxuriously spend my time! Actually I can stay there for a lifetime. Though one is located at a distance to be flown away from my base city (Delhi), Mumbai is like a second home for the umpteen times I have been to the city for work. The other one is at a driving distance from my base city. No one can resist Jaipur’s colourful streets! So before much ado, let me tell you more about the two destinations where life is a treat in itself.
Travel is sometimes not just about reaching the destination –the beaches and the colourful town, but often it’s driven by a desire for new experiences, cultures and people, and an intense urge to explore more and go further just as much about what happens along the way. Often, even the most talented wordsmith can’t paint the mood and the magic of a new place the way your camera lens can, creating the best digital record and memories that will last forever. Because of these latest travel trends, the travel industry is flourishing at a rapid rate to create more opportunities, personalized trips and experiences than ever before.
Every year we plan a holiday to take a break from our monotonous routine. Even I do that and I try to go to a different destination to refresh myself however we have our favourite destinations and in a minute we just want to be exported there. Well, we can’t do that in a minute but we can do it in a second? Confused? Read on!
A weekend getaway is the most welcoming thought and when I got an invitation to Hotel Mosaic Musoorie, I was pretty excited. Just the thought of going to the hills gave me enough joy so imagine what feeling would the actual hills given me. Without much delay, I said yes and landed at Mussoorie, the queen of hills post an early morning train journey till Dehradun followed by an hour drive to Mussoorie!
What if I tell you that one morning when I woke up in Thailand, I saw a beautiful view through the glass pane and balcony of clear blue water from a gorgeous room located on the 20th floor of a high rise building! If this is what you also want to wake up to then keep reading! Andaman Beach Suites Hotel in Patong, Phuket offers a panoramic vista of lush green hill-slopes, sparkling blue sea and shimmering white sand. Doesn’t it sound like a dream? The hotel is well thronged by not only Indians but even tourists from China and Australia.
