I have had some amazing and fascinating experiences during my 16-year travel career, including spotting a Royal Bengal tiger at close quarters in Central India, dining with members of the Indian royal families, staying in royal palaces and some of the most stunning luxury hotels in the world, and swimming with turtles while snorkelling in the Maldives.
I have visited many destinations featured in the Western & Oriental Collection, including India, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, Dubai and Mauritius, and I love sharing my first-hand knowledge of these destinations with my clients, from advising them of the best time of year to travel, which luxury hotel to choose and where to find the best local cuisine to arranging the little extras that ensure the perfect holiday, whether it is a single resort family escape or an exotic cultural tour.
I was born and brought up in India and for me it is the perfect destination. I have travelled extensively there yet I still get very excited when I discover something or somewhere new. People say my eyes glitter when I hear the word ‘India’ and I always enjoy showcasing the real India to the discerning traveller. My other specialist areas have all impressed me too and I also love promoting these destinations.
I have worked in India and the UK in the luxury holiday market, and joined Western & Oriental in early 2008. My passion for travel ensures I enjoy my job immensely, with every day bringing new experiences and more knowledge.
