Farah Palia, Assitant Editor, Digital at HELLO! magazine, knows how to holiday like a royalty. Rajasthan to Oman to Venice, if there’s a palace turned into a luxury hotel, she’s either been there or it’s on her travel list. So we convinced her to reveal her MasterList for fabulous palace retreats. Here you go –

Farah Palia

“There’s nothing quite like a visit to an ancient but well-restored Palace hotel, anywhere in the world – but especially in India, for a luxurious getaway that beautifully blends history and tradition with contemporary comforts. Grand spaces, intricately detailed rooms and palate-pleasing cuisine of a by-gone era make for a surreal; and unparalleled, holiday environment. If you’re planning a ‘Palace Holiday’ make sure to include some glamorous but practical additions that will take you from the pool to the throne room with ease. Start off with a statement-making swimsuit and wrap around for the poolside paired with comfortable but chic flats and stylish bi-colour, tinted cat-eye sunglasses. For a modish evening, choose between a classic traditional kaftan or a modern-contemporary lace short dress. A classic sling bag is a perfect accompaniment for either ensemble. Spray on a light scent for a tropical dinner under the stars. A build-able eye-shadow and compact will transform you from day-time elegance to apres-hours sophistication. Add a smart accessory for an understated impact. All-in-all, nothing quite compares to a Royal vacation, so adjust the straw in your drink and take in the sumptuous splendour that surrounds you!”
