Hg2 : The Hedonist

Scarlett Stapleton

Brought up in Hong Kong and India, Scarlett escaped a desk job for most of her twenties in favour of travelling – running a hotel in Rajasthan, writing Hg2 Stockholm and a second guide on Berlin. She finally relented and specialised in India and the Far East at Cazenove + Loyd, spending way more time in luxury hotels than was healthy. Bored of sending other people on holiday, she is now seeking new adventures in the art world and re-discovering the joys of backpacking. With most of Asia, Africa and Europe well covered, Brazil and Russia are next on the list. She is in training for her private pilot’s licence to help her get there. She loves dogs, upgrades and Indian trains, but loathes spiders and faceless hotels. What makes her a hedonist? “My new mantra: ‘e’ is for enjoyment and not for effort.”
