Rohit Bal Anarkali + How to Plan a Trip to Koh Samui

orange rohit bal anarkali

Hi Everyone, πŸ™‚

I am sharing this gorgeous Rohit Bal outfit I picked recently. We shot these photos at Four Seasons, Koh Samui. I absolutttely loved the jacket details of the dress and the whole anarkali was so grand. When I wore it the first time, IΒ knew I had to have it in my collection. Β I wore ghungaroo earrings from Ritika Sachdeva and amazingly managed to find a ghongaroo jooti to go with it . πŸ˜€Β Added a little special touch with this heritage hair pin I picked from Amrapali. Hope you like it. Wish you alll a very Happy Dhanteras.

I have added a few pointers on how to plan your Koh Samui trip, which you MUST. It was literally heavenly. Hope you find these tips useful. And I’d can’t wait to show you my Diwali outfit. Lovvee you a ton!! πŸ™‚

  • For Koh Samui we had a flight from Delhi – Bangkok- Koh Samui and Return. Delhi to Bangkok is around 4 hours and a further 1 hour flight to Koh Samui.
  • Visa you can get on arrival at the Bangkok airport
  • We stayed at Four Seasons Resort, Koh Samui. Highhhly Recommended.
  • Things to do in Koh Samui. They have the most stunning beaches- Chaweng Beach is a must visit
  • Get a Thai Massage done for sure
  • You can do a lot of water sports at Chaweng beach, weather permits. Carry your swimwear for sure.
  • Koh Samui hosts the most amazing Full Moon parties atΒ Koh Phangan island.Β They are held every month on a full moon night. Plan your travel accordingly if you want to attend one. Though these days they host half moon parties as well. So far there is a moon, there is a party in Koh Samui. πŸ˜› All the dates are available online
  • Angthong Marine Park is a great tourist attraction.
  • Koh Samui is famous for snorkelling. But we went during the rainy season so the day we planned on doing it, they closed the activity for the season. πŸ˜› Gives us a reason to go back again.
  • You can visit Koh Samui any time of the year. Avoid the rainy season because the only thing that ruins a beach destination is rain. We had two days of sun and two days of rain so it was still amazing. The rain only made the place more gorgeous. That said all 4 days of rain would have been a bummer.
  • What to pack- the regular – light dresses, sunscreen, flip flops, shorts, tees, sunglasses, swimwear. πŸ™‚

    • Rati says:

      Thanks nandini!! actually the weather is qute gorgeous these days. And havent got time to experience the delhi madness yet. I got way too busy with work as soon as we got back. How are you? πŸ™‚

      • Nandini says:

        Yeah I got to experience the lovely pre-winter weather there and try out some new places in both Gurgaon and Delhi. I’m doing great! really loving work these days, I’m glad I left behind the ad agency madness haha πŸ˜› the blog’s also keeping me busy. Hope you’re having an awesome Diwali! Wish Sanjeev too from me πŸ™‚

  3. Aditi says:

  4. Vini says:

    You are looking gorgeous Rati .. I’m your one of the biggest fan over instagram … In love wid your every picture ???

  5. Kanchan says:

    Hi, M a new Follower. Love the site and the content. Just wondering how you packed the lehenga and the Anarkali and the casuals And the shoes for your travel. Am I the only one whose travel case looks like crap, is over stuffed, over weight and I STILL have nothing to wear πŸ™
    Would love a post with packing tips… Cheers….

    • Rati says:

      Kanchan, Nothing fancy actually. I packed them in a big suitcase. I had to get them ironed once I reached the hotel. that’s all. :))

      And over a period of time I have learnt how not to be overstuffed. I count the number of days and pack only clothes on a per day basis. Jeans and shorts, shoes or skirts you can pack less because they can be mixed and matched. Tees and UGs always more. I had worn every single thing by the end of the trip except one skirt. It was quite satisfying. πŸ˜€

  6. Love..love..love.. you, the anarkali, the jootis, the hair pin, your lip color, Koh Samui, your earrings.. everything πŸ˜€
    Wish you a veryyyyy happppyyyyy Diwali and have a blast!!!!

  7. shikha says:

    I loooooove beaches so much that I cannot even explain, especially the clean and clear ones as these. I wish I could swim though. I feel lucky that I have snorkeled in one of the best beaches in India, so no regrets there. πŸ˜€ I have also had thai massages, but not in Thailand…so is it Thai enough? πŸ˜› I love the way sir captures the beauty of each place you visit and his wife’s too.

    You outfit is definitely stunning, the kinda outfit that only you can carry with so much ease. You look very very elegant in all the pics but my fav one is number 4; it is a classic maharani pose, which totally goes with your persona. Not saying this cos you are my boss but whenever I look at your pics I think that even if not “born to be”, you were ” meant to be” what you are today. Thanks for inspiring us all everyday. Looking forward to your Diwali outfit post now. Eagerly. πŸ™‚

    Lots of love

    Shikha :-*

    • Rati says:
