For Vinti Lodha, advisor at Lodha Luxury, vacations are about getting her adrenaline pumping, be it in the sky or the deep seas.

Favourite destinations
“I love Moscow for its vibe. It’s a great mix of art and culture. There’s also great food, the Bolshoi theatre, the circus, etc. It has things for all ages.

“I adore the Maldives because I am an adventure buff. I love scuba diving, and the properties there can’t be found anywhere else. The last time we visited, I stayed at the Soneva Jani. You have a remote control that works on everything. My 10-year-old and I went diving, and it was just spectacular.

“Copenhagen for the extremely friendly people. There’s one incident I can never forget: We were enjoying the roller-coasters at the Tivoli Gardens. When we came out, these college kids who had won toys at the fun fair, gave them away to my children, who were extremely thrilled!”

Adventure junkie
“I went sky diving in New Zealand 10 years ago. I went without knowing what to expect. I got into a van that drove us to the location, and on the way, they told us what to do. My biggest fear was, what if the harness opens up. But I jumped and it was amazing. It’s a great way to beat your fears.

“The only adventure sport I haven’t tried is bungee jumping, and I don’t think I will try it either. You’re upside down, and I think it would make me dizzy.”

Destination revelation
“Oman really surprised me. I went over a long weekend with absolutely no expectations. We were wondering what we would do there, but it’s such a beautiful place, and now I want to go back again to see it properly. The spice markets, the stunning mosques — Oman is a must see!”

Travel The World

12 Oct, 2018
By Masoom GupteTo reduce the world to a list of top destinations is a near impossible task. But for a variety of reasons some places are favoured over others and become the flavour of the moment. Here are some of the top spots trending this year.

Solo luxury
“Last year, I travelled solo to Paris to attend Chanel’s annual jewellery show. It’s a two-day vacation where you’re just being pampered and you get to meet people from all over the world. It was pure luxury because the day is yours. And there are no kids waking you up (laughs).

“Getting up when you want, eating what you want, not thinking about someone else’s stomach, shopping at your own time, getting your hair done… it’s absolutely fantastic.

“When you travel alone, you focus on yourself. When you travel with other people, you’re consumed with what everyone else wants to do.”

Second home
“My home away from home is London. Every summer, we go there for two months. It’s a perfect blend of everything. The priority for us as family in London is the food. We love visiting Kai Mayfair for Chinese, Abd el Wahab for Lebanese, Nobu for Japanese and lots of corners in Soho for street food. My children also love St Moritz Restaurant for the raclette.”

Travel buddies
“My mom is the best person to travel with. We do a trip every year. Me, my mother and my kids, and sometimes, my dad. This year, we are going to southern Italy.”

Tips for travelling with kids
“I have been travelling with my children since the time my eldest was 20 days old, so I am used to it. It’s an adventure for them and they get used to it. I have three kids and it’s super hectic, but they are like little sponges. If you’re at ease, they absorb it. Don’t stress. I see mothers carrying food, but don’t stress yourself out: You find stuff, you will manage, and they will survive.”
