thrilling escapades. memorable experiences

From being a favourite of the Victorians—who adored the Swiss city for its striking scenery and grand resorts—to becoming the destination of choice for adventure junkies, thanks to its array of action-packed experiences, Interlaken has come a long way.

japan through the eyes of a winner

A trip to Japan features on everyone’s bucket list. A culinary trip to Japan? Well that’s a once-in-a-lifetime kind of opportunity.

a fabulously french stay

While the very name Hôtel Westminster conjures up images of British aristocracy, the property couldn’t be any more French if it tried. Wedged between the Opéra Garnier and Place Vendôme on the Rue De La Paix, and framed by Haussmannian architecture, this four-star hotel is a Parisian gem. A stroll through the vicinity will throw up an array of surprises—from upscale boutiques like Cartier and Dunhill to the sprawling Tuileries Garden. Settle into one of the property’s 102 rooms (80 rooms and 22 suites) that range in styles from Louis XV and Louis XVI to Napoleon III and Regency.

Basis your preference, opt for views…
