Rishi Chopra, General Manager, Le Méridien Mahabaleshwar Resort & Spa

Travel helps in enriching one’s perspective towards life. I enjoy spending time in natural surroundings. Thus, when it comes to domestic travel, I like to unwind at the beach resorts in Goa and also revel in the tranquil experiences that Kerala has to offer. I also like to travel to understand new cultures and experience local markets. Maldives remains my all-time favourite destination for its pristine waters and activities. My favourite cuisine is Oriental, with Japanese food topping the list. I also love taking time out to play chess, one hobby that has stayed with me ever since childhood.
