In this issue we highlight how design plays a pivotal role in ensuring a great hospitality experience. Design Today takes you to a pick of exotic and unique places in India and abroad—enjoy a visual feast and know what to look for when planning your next vacation. And for those of you who intend to enter the industry in whatever little way, to pick up some good ideas to ensure your place is ‘design perfect’.
