    Luxury Redefined

    The fact that the Ritz-Carlton’s first foray into India took place in Bengaluru and not in the other Indian cities says a lot about the charm and green appeal of the city. Future plans are afoot for expansion but at the moment, Bengaluru and Bengaluru alone can bask in the glory of having such a bespoke brand in its midst.

    Garden of Delights

    Responsible Luxury – a phrase that sounds like an oxymoron. At the ITC Gardenia Bengaluru, this is a flourishing concept and one that’s been embraced with much gusto. The location of the hotel – mere minutes from the lush Cubbon Park – certainly helps but locality alone isn’t the main pull. What makes the ITC Gardenia unflinchingly unique is its deep commitment to environmental friendly policies and ecologically sound practices.

    The Vantage Point

    The Sanskrit word maya may mean illusion but rest assured, there’s nothing illusory about the cool comfort of Maya Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. With the glittering Petronas Twin Towers on one side and Kuala Lumpur Tower on the other, this is arguably the best seat in town to ogle the towers that have defined KL’s skyline.

    Living It Up at the Ritz

    Interest aroused by strains of jazz music, the gentle clinking of glasses and whispers of conversations coming from The Lobby Lounge, the Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur’s elegant dining room-cum-lounge, I peeked in to find well-shod ladies and gentlemen at tables laden with Sunday lunch and bottles of Laurent-Perrier champagne.

    Colonial Magic

    As a young girl, I’d passed the old Majestic Hotel countless times and imagined what it must’ve been like in its heyday, the era of swing music, fedoras and white dinner jackets. This white Art Deco building had been the place to be and be seen back in the 30s and even right up till the 70s, before its lustre began to dim, and it was surpassed by newer hotels, and later, converted into an art gallery in the 80s.

    Heritage Hideaway

    If you travel as frequently as I do, the hotels you call your temporary home sometimes run the risk of becoming indistinguishable. While some travellers have no objections to a standard template hotel room, I tend to like one with character, something the newly-opened The Hermitage, Jakarta’s sole Leading Hotels of the World (LHW) property, has in spades.

    Full of Surprises

    I hadn’t been to Jakarta in over six years, but a trip there recently saw the city welcoming me with a two-hour long macet (traffic jam)! Well, it was a Friday evening and the InterContinental Jakarta MidPlaza hotel I was heading for was located along busy Jl. Sudirman in the CBD.
