Ishikaa and Jayesh – Europe
A leisurely European honeymoon planned by A Travel Duet saw Jayesh and Ishikaa living it up in Greece, Spain, Italy, France and UK, and even taking a week-long cruise
Jayesh, a businessman, and Ishikaa, a designer, first met at Ishikaa’s house in Bangalore. They had an arranged marriage in September 2016 in Hyderabad, where they are currently based.
The couple zeroed in on Europe for their honeymoon, with a focus on the beautiful country of Greece which they saw as the perfect honeymoon destination. Their itinerary, planned by A Travel Duet, also included Spain, Italy, France and the UK. Their month-long holiday saw them clubbing in vibrant, cosmopolitan cities such as Amsterdam, Barcelona, Ibiza, Paris and London. They also enjoyed a week-long cruise on the world’s largest cruise ship – Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas – which they boarded from Barcelona. The young, dynamic couple also did two honeymoon photoshoots in Paris and Santorini, where they captured memories for a lifetime.
In Mykonos, Jayesh and Ishikaa stayed at Hotel Kouros. A hot favorite with travelers, the hotel is set in a beautiful stone-built and whitewashed complex overlooking the brilliant blue Aegean Sea. It lies close to the Old Port of Mykonos City and is just 5km from the international airport. The twinkling lights at the hotel complex at night made for a magical setting, as did the winding trails and unrestrained views of the sea. In Santorini, they booked into the Pegasus Suites & Spa Hotel. This five-star luxury resort also offered them beautiful water views, modern amenities and warm hospitality. They enjoyed the elegance of the Grosvenor Marriott hotel in London, and the modern functionality of Hotel Renaissance in Barcelona.
“We had our best meal at the Dishoom restaurant in London, and definitely recommend the ‘seekh kebabs’ there as it is a must-try dish,” they share.
