editor’s note

I love vacations painted in the shades of the sun, sand, and sea. Take me to any island, and I’m blissfully content.

But when I finally set foot in The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort for our cover shoot with the effervescent Bollywood diva Malaika Arora, the nausea and exhaustion of the long journey evaporated and was almost instantly replaced by a sense of calm. The property is focussed on boosting wellness—through its signature meals, spa rituals, and exercise routines—and I experienced the effects first-hand over the two nights I spent there (p. 66).

No. 1 Get a Bird’s-Eye View of Mount Everest Scaling Mt Everest is one thing, staring down at it like a bird is another. Hop on an aircraft run by Buddha Air to gaze at the highest peaks in Nepal (also the highest points on Earth), flying so close to them that at one point snow-capped Everest is not more than 30 kilometres away from your seat. During the 50-minute flight, every passenger is provided a window seat for unobstructed views of the mountain peaks, which include the likes of Shishapangma (8,027 metres above sea level) and Lhotse (8,516 metres).

talk of the town

The second of its name in the country, the Four Seasons Hotel Bengaluru has arrived in style. Not only does it impress residing guests with its facilities and service, but it’s also gearing up to draw the city’s night crawlers looking for a buzzing nightlife spot.
