    Waterfront Staycation with Ramada Alleppey

    After a fantastic experience at Fort Kochi, Meenakshi and I went to Alleppey which is known as Venice of the east. Ramada Alleppey is a stunning property facing the backwaters of Kerala, and the cherry on top is we were given the best rooms. About the property- Ramada Alleppey is just five years old and also the place where annual Nehru Trophy Boat Race is conducted. The property is about 2 hours away from Fort Kochi, and this hotel is the best option for people who like luxury mixed with nature. The moment you enter the premises oozes out uber luxury with attentive staff and facilities. There are 121 rooms…

    #SoMyTravels To Cochin

    Visiting “God’s own Country’ was always on my bucket list and thanks to Neemrana Hotels it has come true. If you haven’t checked out my previous post about Neemrana, then you can check it here. The bright blue sky with lush greens and large structured Portuguese buildings, I was welcomed to Fort Kochi. If you ignore the electric pole lines, then most of the buildings date back to the 17th century and give a certain primitive feel. We were unsure of the plans for the day, but our hotel manager sorted all out for us and also arranged a tuk-tuk service to drive along the place. The rickshaw is the…

    My Stay-cation At Tower House- Cochin

    I had the perfect weekend at the Tower House Neemrana Hotel. The Neemrana hotels are the ones who have restored the beauty and history of India in the form of their hotels and resorts.  And most importantly they offer the most fantastic experience while staying at their property. And, I was thrilled when they invited me for a staycation at one of their non-hotel hotels in Cochin. Meenakshi and I stayed in their 17th-century property which is owned by 150 years old Pierce Lesley and managed by Neemrana. The property has a sea facing view and the famous Chinese fish nets. About the property- The Tower House transports you to…

    #SoMyTravels To Maharashtra

    Hello, It’s been a while since I last uploaded a blog post. Today, I am back with a mini travel post. My girlfriends and I went on a leisure weekend getaway to Maharashtra to celebrate one of my friend’s bachelorette party. It was a three days trip to Lonavala, Alibaug, and Pune.

It was a bungalow which was very close by to the beach. The host…

    My Fashion Story | Thailand 2k16

    Hey, guys! I recently went on a trip to Thailand for a week. I initially thought of recording my entire trip, but my camera gave up on me. The battery got screwed on the second day; it wasn’t even charging! But I recorded the trip on my phone which turned out to be super bad; I got conscious while filming myself. Can’t do it. EVER! I wish I could like the other YouTubers. 2. Of course, the camera quality! By the way, I over packed again! *little guilty* :D. Also, I didn’t wear all my dresses because of a lot of traveling. We hired a car and drove from city to…
