Luxury & Boutique Stays

Luxury to me, is not owning a lot of stuff. Luxury, to me, is feeling unrushed.

– Tim Ferriss

Whatever your idea of luxury may be –  comfort at every step, an absence of vulgarity, detail-orientation, or just the feeling of being unrushed – it is not an easy ask to be experienced consistently. Yet many hotels & resorts do manage the experience successfully.

Good accommodation – be it a luxury resort or a quirky room or a simple homestay – can make any vacation a memorable one. In this section, I review some of the Luxury & Boutique properties I have stayed in; these are destinations in themselves.
