Dreaming of India

Recently back from a two week trip to India.  India is a myriad of sounds, sights, smells, experiences.

Of course we all know this sight...

The beautiful Taj Mahal.

The town of Agra has both the Taj and The Red Fort, which is worth a tour on your way out of town.

Splurge and spend the night at the Oberoi Amar Vilas, where every room has a view of the Taj Mahal.

And the pool makes for a nice respite after a hot tour in Agra.

 

Next it was off to Ranthambore in search of the Tiger.


I saw a tiger drag a deer across a field, across a creek and onto an island.  A 45 minute tiger siteing.

We were very lucky!

Live like a Prince on a Tiger hunt at Sher Bagh, a Relais and Chateaux property.  

Your luxurious tent awaits you!

Next stop, Udaipur, home of this magnificent property, The Taj Lake Palace Hotel.

Only people who are staying at the hotel have the privilege of visiting...

But of course, if you prefer to look at it, these hotels are amazing as well...

The Leela Udaipur will take your breath away...

And then there is the Oberoi in Udaipur which has 64 acres of gardens to up the game.

Time for some shopping, so it's off to Jaipur, a shopper and history buff's dream.

I loved my stay at the Samode Haveli.  Staying in a palace with a hip vibe is super special.

Having breakfast in this courtyard in the morning with the birds chirping all around is fantastic.

And if you want something a bit fancier, there is the Taj Jaipur.  I saw a "Ring Ceremony" there, which is a pre-party for an Indian Wedding.  So many flowers and colors!

Bought some fabric, bought some furniture, bought some jewelry.

Love shopping in Jaipur.  

Stay tuned for my next update on Historic hotels in India.

They were wonderful as well.

Ever Wonder...

What your own private island would look like? 

Head to Kamalame Cay, Bahamas, and find out.

 

The 96 acre Kamalame offers a private oasis of palm trees, long stretches of white sand beaches, and romantic bungalows. Lounge by the pool, or head to the ocean for snorkeling, swimming, or simply relaxing in the crystal clear Caribbean water. 

At mealtime, head over to the Great House, which serves Bahamian cuisine as well as international gourmet. Don’t worry about a dress code; Kamalame is “barefoot chic.” Slip on a sarong, mingle with other guests, and sip a perfectly prepared Bahamian rum punch. 

With something for everyone, Kamalame is the perfect place for a beach vacation. Unwind in the world-class spa, snorkel among manta rays, or take a dip in the peaceful pool.  Experience your own private island in the Caribbean Sea, without having to wear a tux to dinner.

A Visit to Round Hill Hotel and Villas 

From the rain forests of the Blue Mountains to the beaches of Montego Bay, the island of Jamaica's abundant natural resources and vibrant culture make for a perfect mix of adventure and unforgettable memories.

Round Hill, one of the most iconic and quintessential Jamaican hotels, combines classic charm with five star service and amenities. Round Hill has been a popular luxury destination since 1953, and continues to attract vacationers seeking a superior Jamaican experience.

The property consists of 36 hotel rooms, and 27 villas. The chic Jamaican interiors of the hotel rooms are the work of designer, and Round Hill frequent guest, Ralph Lauren. The villas are hidden among bright gardens, and have private dipping pools.

 

While all the rooms and villas at Round Hill offer comfort, style, and chic accommodations, Villa 24 stands out. The recently renovated 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, cottage offers guests an ocean view, lush garden, and private pool. Perfect for families or couples, Villa 24 is a Becky Lamb Travel favorite.
