About this BookWhen London doctor Ravi Kapoor hits the breaking point with his difficult Father-in-Law, he goes to his wife and asks "Can't we just send him away somewhere? Somewhere far, far away." His prayer appears to get answered when Ravi's cousin sets up a retirement home in Bangalore, India.
Multiple retirees are drawn by the promise of inexpensive luxury living. But to their dismay on arrival, the restoration of a once-sophisticated hotel stalled out, and common amenities--such as electricity and water--are infrequent in availability. While their new life lacks in luxury, they soon come to find that their new lives are plentiful in other things: adventure, beauty and love.
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is now a Major Motion Picture starring Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson, Billy Nighy and Dev Patel.
