Perseverance is the ingredient

SkinRevive started as a skincare blog. I’d always wanted to educate people on taking good care of their skin by utilizing ingredients which are mostly used in the kitchen or generally at home. Blogging was a way to channel that interest. I enjoyed it for some time. Then something bigger took precedence. I started organizing workshops at various places. This was received by loads of people with great enthusiasm and interest. The classes were interactive, and more and more people started signing up. It was a huge boost for the brand. I thoroughly enjoyed holding these workshops.

Recently, I set up ‘SkinRevive’ clinic in Mumbai. We’ve come a long way – my brand and I. It’s been quite eventful!

Ans. Despite facing difficulties, what is it that keeps one going on? Well, I’d say love. My love for what I do. My will power and belief in myself, too. Altogether, they’ve kept me consistently chasing my purpose of providing natural and healthy skin care.

  1. What 2 things does old businesses need to do to keep up with latest market challenges

Ans. In my opinion, in this age, it’s imperative for a brand or business to be active on social media. And being merely present does not help – a brand has to interact, engage and educate its target audience on all its social platforms.

  1. What is your mantra for zoning out?

Ans. I realign myself with Gratitude to Universe and positive affirmations.

  1. Who has been the pillar of strength in your professional journey

Ans. Without any doubt, it’s my family and friends. They’ve stood by me through thick and thin. They’re the pillars of strength in my professional as well personal journey.

  1. What are 3 key skills needed for success in business

Ans. For a business to succeed, I believe that it one must do the following three things:

  • Spend time and resources to carry out in-depth research in its specific field

From an amazing and colorful welcome with the traditional pagdi, to puppet dolls, bangles and the beats of drums …. the finalists were welcomed and treated like Queens. Enjoying the resort stay at the rooms and the luxury tents, they have taken and given everyone at Rajasthali a memorable experience to be cherished !

Wedding vows amidst luxury in nature

Marriages are made in heaven, the rituals are completed on Earth

Yes, and what more a beautiful place than one amidst nature, with the grand majestic mountains surrounding you and the starry night sky covering your dreams and manifesting your new love and binding them with the rituals adorned in luxury ! Heaven isn’t it ?

Wedding season seems far away or rather the wedding date is too far away for the couple getting married… but their excitement seems to only get the better of them when they have to find their dream wedding location !!

And Viola ! Here we come to the rescue … so we headed down with our lovely couple (all set to be married in November 2018) from Jaipur, Rajasthan (for those of you who haven’t been to India yet, it is a state known for its rich and princely cultural heritage) to the most heard about wedding destination in recent times and a hidden gem in the foothills of the grand Aravali mountains: the Rajasthali Resorts & Spa.

Located in Kukas, North of Jaipur, as we entered through the majestic gates of Rajasthali Resorts & Spa, we were welcomed by the green landscaped gardens spread across the expanse of the property.

Entrance Driveway to the main building

Entering the main palatial structure, Rajasthali’s beauty enveloped us into its tranquility and gave us the feel of a peaceful solace as we settled in after the warm and traditional Rajasthani welcome – Ram Ram Sa !

Rajasthali Resorts, as we found in our conversation with the Agarwal Family, is inspired by the grandeur and classic Rajput Royalty, where the family is aiming to give the leisure seeking traveler a taste of culture blended in natural surroundings.

From those of you who know me and my craze of nature and greenery would understand how I felt seeing nature’s beauty enveloping the resort which provided a perfect mix of Rajasthani hospitality with international service.

Entrance to the palatial building

As we toured the property, we totally fell in love with the exquisitely crafted luxury rooms in the main building and what took our breathe away were the luxury tents allowing you to experience the century old methods of the Royalty traveling across the vast desert and using tents for resting !

Rajasthali gives you a choice to spoil yourself whether you are an indoor or an outdoor person, it doesn’t matter , they have just the right room for you !

Now here was a little tussle between the to-be-bride and groom … one wanted to have their honeymoon suite indoor and the other outdoor … you can take a wild guess you wanted to stay outdoor !! LOL … I did not hear how that decision ended …left the love birds to sort it out !!

The luxurious rooms had beautiful long windows giving a feel of openess to the setting and decor ! Embedding the touch of gold finish to the furniture and decor gave it a rich and royal feel … I loved the way the room’s height was more than normal … reminded me of the typical arabian desert mansions with high ceilings … keeps the temperature cool !

My personal preference was the outdoor tents as I felt it gives you the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful mornings and the glittering starry sky just above ! How beautifully romantic is that ! I would have actually spent the night on the lounge chair by the pool as well and slept watching the stars above !

Luxury Tents with all the amenities

Coming from the event industry I have done the rounds with couples and families to see different venues in UAE and India, but trust me I loved the concept of the luxury tents … for a moment I got a glimpse of the movie Padmavat run like a flash through my mind !

Truly we found Rajasthali a very inviting and a beautifully perfect setting in between the mountains for weddings and special celebrations. Due to the stretch of area the property covers it has the capacity to accommodate large gatherings and also allowing the family to enjoy Royal luxury and hertiage. The grounds are huge enough for a lovely mandap …covered in a cozy tent or just under the open sky … and even having your sangeet there is an amazing idea … the band baaja baaraat style !!

And our dear couple were worried about one major reason of discussion among wedding guests (specially an Indian wedding) – THE FOOD ! We rested assured after tasting their amazingly rich Rajasthani cuisine that their guests are going to love the venue and the menu !!! Well for me … I think I was waiting for the crane to come lift me… LOL , I am just kidding ! I love food in Jaipur … OMG the hospitality of people there is par excellence … be ready to loosen your belts and keep that extra lining in your dresses or cholis … to breathe easy after the food !!

Dining Area

After the amazing lunch we toured the most relaxing part of the property – The Pavitra Wellness Spa !

I guess the best part of having the wedding here will be enjoying the spa and the pool the next day after the end of all the wedding ceremonies … relax and restore your tranquility with their Pavitra Wellness Spa ! We were all joking,  looks like the guests will not leave even after the wedding is over !! LOL !! To be seen …..

If you planning to take your wedding vows this year or wanting to celebrate your Union ? Or your years of togetherness … we totally recommend Rajasthali Resorts & Spa in Jaipur , Rajasthan.

Here’s a few shots of the pool and the tents at sunset !! I don’t know about you, but I booked myself for the summer holidays already … from the heat of Dubai to the cool rainy unpredictable weather of Jaipur …oh I love their untimely showers !! A blessing for us desert kids !!

Pool Side

 

Luxury Tents at Sunset

As we are gearing for our next wedding experience … a few images of the last wedding we had at Rajasthali Resorts & Spa …. check them below.

 

 

Oh and this trip doesn’t end here …. you have to know about the Miss World Pageant Contestants at the Rajasthali Resorts & Spa … got your attention …. that’s coming soon … oh you will love Manushi Chhillar , Miss India World 2017 ! Stay hooked to this space people !
