I’m adding a new section to the Kiwi JetSetter as I was given a new component from the Kiwi geek squad today…a nifty flash gallery of different images in our Kiwi Image collection. Each week, I’ll find and feature a different “dream destination” in a series of stunning images.
One of the most frequent comments I hear from people across this Interweb thingee is how much they enjoy looking at our many fine images housed on the Kiwi Collection website of Luxury Hotels. I know many friends that love to sit back at night with a glass of wine in one hand, and their laptop computer in the other…looking, err…dreaming about some of the properties in the Kiwi Collection.
And who can blame them? I often sit here at Kiwi HQ daydreaming about some remote exclusive area in the world, with the finer things in life and no cares in the world. It almost sounds a little tawdry…but I promise its not something your spouse will get you into trouble over…haha.
So sit back, grab your glass of wine and your drool towel and lets have a look see at this week’s “dream destination”…the Taj Mahal Luxury Palace & Tower in Mumbai, India.
Here’s a little info about this property:
