Welcome to Ampersand's travel blog. This is where you'll find out all the latest goings on from our travels across Asia.
Our motto is that luxury is in the experience: watching tigers padding through the Kanha jungle in the company of an expert guide… camping out under the Ladakh stars wrapped in cashmere blankets… having a rickshaw driver at your disposal 24 hours a day in Siem Reap... these are the things we adore.
All over Asia – from Bhutan to Bali, from Sri Lanka to Laos – we know the most charming privately-owned hotels, the best secret beaches, the prettiest palaces and the fattest, happiest elephants for bespoke safaris. Our Little Black Book contains the best textile buffs, the greediest foodies, the wittiest maharajas and the loveliest places to drink champagne in the moonlight.
But what we love most of all is revealing these treasures to our clients. In our blog we hope to inspire and inform you by providing the latest travel news, hotel openings and luxury holiday ideas across Asia.
