Bawah Reserve, in the Anambas Islands in Indonesia, is as remote as you can get, and quite the perfect place for romantic trip à deux – or a honeymoon. Now, one lucky couple has the chance to win an inclusive honeymoon including a three-night stay in an Overwater Bungalow, return transfers from Singapore via private seaplane and the choice of one of three True Love Escape honeymoon packages – Earth, Explorer, and Bliss.

To enter, couples simply share their story on what they had organized for their honeymoon and how Covid-19 affected their plans. Submissions should be no longer than 700 words, including where couples were going and what honeymoon they were hoping for. The prize is available for couples who got married anytime from January 2019 to the present, and entries should include a photograph.

Whether honeymooners are active explorers, eco-conscious couples, or newlyweds who simply want to kick back and relax in their own private island paradise, the packages promise something for everyone. The Earth Honeymoon option is ideal for the eco-conscious and nature loving couples who will feel restored, whilst reducing their carbon footprint. The package includes a forest hike to a private beach picnic, garden-to-plate cooking class, private batik painting class and a conservation scuba dive with the resort’s in-house marine biologist.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
