Dr Karen Soh on motherhood: “The hardest thing is learning to let go”

A Stream of Hospitality: Chatting with the Co-Founders of Nirjhara

Adrien Portier and Dimitri Tran talk to Prestige about the humbling journey in running one of Bali’s most unique resorts Located at the heart of Nirjhara in Bali is a waterfall.

The philosophy of the waterfall has always fascinated Adrien Portier and Dimitri Tran, co-founders of Nirjhara, as it is chaotic yet at the same time relaxing; never standing still, yet always...
