Jaipur | Le Méridien | Day 01

For the recently concluded Jaipur Literature Festival 2014, Naina & I were invited by Le Méridien, Jaipur to experience the entire festival and be a part of its finale event – The Writers’ Ball, hosted by Le Méridien. It had been a very long time since my last visit to Jaipur and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. It was also gonna be my first time at the Jaipur Lit Fest. So yay! Since we were there for a total of 3 days, there will be 3 posts about it spread out day-wise giving you a glimpse of our days and experience there. Here goes…

The rains had delayed the flight a bit so we made the airport our playground. These were clicked inside the ladies room.

They welcomed us with pretty marigold garlands and a little red tikka on the forehead for good luck.

Le Méridien, being extensively involved in art, culture and cuisine has a definite atmosphere that supports these. Which is why you will find a lot of exclusive artwork on their walls and even their room key-cards. Its quite fascinating!

Its a lovely hotel with a lot of open space and two very distinct areas, one being more traditional, historical and regal and the other being very modern and sleek. There was much more left to be discovered of the hotel and the city. All that in the posts coming soon!
