"Jivi is Known for his impeccable taste and great style, and is regarded as one of the best-dressed men in India -- but the accolades do not stop with his clothes.
A true Renaissance man, Jivi has an exuberant style and is a fabulous host. His homes in Goa and Delhi are featured in stylebooks and magazines globally. He is passionate about maintaining India's rich craft heritage and with his business partner Viki Sardesai has created the Design Labrotory. The duo have become unofficial ambassadors for India's artisans."

"There is a brightness to Sunbeam - a beautiful and comfortable home with stately, old furniture and long verandahs where one can lounge on swings and sofas, chat, daydream or read. For the more active, there's a swimming pool. The tastefully appointed rooms are large and comfortable. The airconditioning works beautifully in Goa's humid weather. But it's the food served by the housekeeper, Krishna ji, that is outstanding. We feasted on soups, salads, prawns, lamb cooked to tender perfection, crème brulee and the most delicious home-made ice creams.
Sunbeam is a place of camaraderie, shared laughter, great food, tranquility, bird song, greenery and more Jivi, who owns Sunbeam, doesn't just open up his house to guests. His guests become friends with whom he shares his insights into Goa and Goans, his favorite haunts, art, music, fabulous food, haunting views and some great buys. Chefs, hoteliers, designers. Jivi's network spans master tailors, Marton – the gym run by a man who is passionate about fitness, an animal rescue and shelter…This is not the Goa that the average tourist experiences. This is a holiday that lingers in memory. A time when you experience generosity and style, offered with warmth and care.
I’d gift myself and those I hold dear a holiday in Sunbeam any day."
