From New Delhi: Escape to Jaipur
Break away from the clichéd Havelis and head to Rajasthan’s cool new property that's been making the headlines ever since it's launched – the 28 Kothi. Initially set up by Gem Palace designer Munnu Kasliwal to host his guests and collaborators from all around the world, the Kothi is now run by his beloved son Siddharth Kasliwal along with Mumbai restauranter Abhishek Honawar.
USP: Besides the Kothi's understated yet luxurious interiors built by French architect Georges Floret and Jaipur-based Lebanese designer Nur Kaoukji, we are smitten by the idea of fresh-farm meals served from their in-house cafe that boasts a wholly organic vegertarian menu and a Yoga session every morning. SOLD.
