Every Experience is RARE ! | February - 2018


'Meaning is the new luxury’ and it continues to power every RARE experience. ‘Being touched’ is our latest maxim and hence RARE is invaluable! We begin this year with what makes our hotels stand out and hence allow you to suggest them to your guests in many interesting ways. This isn’t all, delve into each hotel on the RARE list and discover art, poetry, nature and natural history, theatre, music, cuisine, rural life, wellness and….. yourself!

It's been a virtual game changer for the RARE community to be an integral part of the 'Most Stunning Hotels' - the supplement with the Dec/Jan issue of Conde Nast, a curated list of the finest boutique hotels in India, Nepal and Bhutan. It is also an outstanding reflection of the concepts for travel and hospitality RARE has been promoting close to over a decade now. A beautifully curated 'collectors copy' this is a must have and we recommend that you get your copy now.
