Managing Partner – Communications & Outreach
Parul, being a military brat managed to see quite a bit of the world when growing up. With a new city and school every two to three years, quick immersions and change became her norm. This developed her love for travel that was later enhanced with her passion for history and culture. This very passion became the basis for her work and then her business.
Her career spanned working in different aspects of the travel industry where she worked in hotels, airlines, cruises, DMCs, and representation companies, even designing a glamping resort on the way, before starting out on her own. Parul has always been a marketing and communication strategist which has helped her achieve positions of strength in whichever role she undertook.
Her strong network, outgoing personality, and can do attitude has kept her on the forefront. She is a proponent of sustainable and conscious travel. Her favorite destinations are La Jolla, Cape Town, Budapest and just about anywhere in Kerala.
If she wasn’t in travel,
Parrul would have been a Chef!

Managing Partner – Compliance & Relationships
Jatin, a corporate lawyer has been involved in setting up international joint ventures and operations for International companies looking for a presence in the Indian market. He has successfully set up companies in India and the Middle East in all industries. It is through his legal background that he got involved in travel and then embraced the business as an avid traveler himself.
As young lad, Jatin sailed the seven seas to experience destinations that most people had only read about. His love for the sea and his access to travel was enhanced by his curious nature allowing him to soak up information about places across the globe. His passion for mythology is a far cry from his innate understanding of international law and finance.
Jatin advises travel and hospitality companies apart from running a travel company and legal firm. His ability to interpret law and use the government initiatives to increase penetration and topline makes him invaluable to any venture.
If Jatin didn’t have to live a mundane life as a homo sapien
He would have been Master of the Universe
