28 Kothi Guesthouse, Jaipur

28 Kothi is a boutique guesthouse in Jaipur. When I spied this unusual beauty on my Instagram Feed last week I felt a most visceral draw to the space. I hadn’t seen a guesthouse in a long time… you see a ‘guesthouse’ in India is a very specific type of establishment, it’s closer to a B&B than a hotel […] Read more…

Originally we had plans to have lunch somewhere not worth much of a mention locally but like out of a dream this place sprung from the depths of my memory. Memories of long languorous family […] Read more…

I Love Abode Hotel, Bombay

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, it’s only apt that I dedicate today’s post to the city that has my heart – Bombay.

The Abode Hotel is […] Read more…
