he? What is he doing? Anirban Roy is the International Man
Of Leisure. What does that mean? He is a man who enjoys the
finer things in life, and he lives life to the fullest each and every
day. Whether traveling internationally, enjoying a gourmet
tasting menu at a top restaurant, or staying at a five star property,
Anirban Roy knows how to live!
Getting back to the 2nd question
posed. Anirban Roy is enjoying a glass of wine in the business
class cabin of American Airlines en route to Barbados for vacation
while watching the movie Aquaman.
How about we explore what makes Anirban's life so fascinating and
enjoys a nice Cuban cigar every now and then along with a glass of his
favorite whiskey or bourbon. Bond drinks vodka martinis
shaken not stirred? What does
Roy drink? Basil Hayden's Bourbon with a
splash of soda water and ginger ale and a large ice cube is one of his
favorite drinks. However, he also enjoys Johnnie Walker Blue
Label, Eagle Rare, Bulleit, Mitcher's Small Batch, and of course
Maker's Mark. Anirban loves fine dining as well. In this
picture, Anirban is enjoying a Cuban cigar
and a drink at the Hyatt Ziva All Inclusive Resort in Montego Bay,
Jamaica. Anirban enjoys vacationing in the Caribbean very
much. He has been to Aruba, Jamaica, (isn't that how a Beach
Boys' song starts :) ), Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, Dominican
Republic, Cozumel, Cancun, Belize, and Barbados in that part of the
been to that many places? That is only the beginning.
Anirban has been to 27 countries at last count plus a few territories
such as Hong Kong and Macau. How does he travel so much?
Anirban works for an European company as an Executive Therapeutic
Business Specialist. He gets over six weeks of
vacation each year! Yes, that is right! He gets a LOT of
vacation so he can travel as much as he desires to.

another fun destination. He is enjoying his prosecco in Delta's
First Class Cabin as his predeparture drink of choice on Delta.
Anirban prefers to fly the premium cabin on his trips!
likes to travel in comfort. Whenever available, he utilizes the
executive lounge at the airports. He has a Priority Pass Select membership through his
luxury credit card so he has unlimited access for himself and two
additional guests at so many lounges around the world.
Anirban and his wife, Joy, are
enjoying a glass of wine and great service at the Club DFW en route to
Lima, Peru here. He utilizes the airline premium lounges as well
including the United Club, Delta Sky Club, or the Admiral's Club
through American Airlines as well. However, Anirban wanted to
give a shout out to his lounge attendant at the Club DFW for the
exceptional service she provided both Anirban and Joy. She even
prepared the shower suite for both of them so they could take a nice
shower before a long flight. Anirban also enjoys the United Club
in Narita for their sushi selection when is traveling to Asia via the
main Japanese airport. I know you want to see more pictures from
the lounges, but there is so much more of Anirban's adventures to
see. Fine. We can share a few more lounge pictures before
we continue to other interests.

going on down here? When Anirban travels, he prefers five star
properties. His brother, Angsuman, and he went to Europe in
2012. They stayed at the Trianon Palace in Versailles, France,
which is a Waldorf Astoria Collection Property. Waldorft Astoria
is Hilton's highest brand. This converted royal palace is right
next door to the famous Palace in Versailles. Anirban has been a
Diamond member of Hilton's HHonors Program since 2011 as a result of
all of his stays at Hilton properties for business and leisure.
His brother and him are waiting at the luxury hotel for their Mercedes
Benz car service to take them to a tour of the Versailles Palace.
Anirban prefers to take luxury car services on international trips
rather than public transportation. LOL.
here? Is this also Europe? That is a BMW after all.
No, this is Anirban in Peru. His chauffeur is loading up his
luggage as he departs the hotel in Miraflores for Surco, an upscale
suburb of Lima. Anirban looks a little annoyed? Well, Lima
has terrible traffic! They are stuck in traffic for a long time
as he heads from one luxury hotel to a five star property where stayed
near the US Embassy.
Speaking of Surco in Peru, Anirban dined at one of
the top restaurants there called Osaka El Polo. He enjoys fine
dining also. That omakase appetizer plate just looks so delicious
with the smoke coming out of the plate. The fish and seafood was
Anirban loves parties! He loves to
host them as well as attend them. In the pictures above, Anirban
and his wife are attending a Beverly Hills wedding at the Four

Anirban's house. A party server is offering champagne to
Anirban's guests in the picture. Anirban likes to hire catering
staff whenever possible to work at his parties so he can enjoy the
party and his
Anirban fly a plane also? No, he is not a pilot, but he has flown
a Cessna C-172 for a very short time while sitting in the co pilot's
seat with his friend who is a pilot. Anirban loves
adventure! Don't believe us? How about we look at the
pictures below! Anirban is ziplining across that high and long
zip line in Puerto Vallarta as well as climbing a slippery water fall
in Jamaica at Dunn's River Falls. Wow! Anirban has lots of

around the world, another room service attendant is bringing Mr. Roy
and his girlfriend their breakfast at the five star Conrad Hotel in
Macau! Mr. Roy was upgraded to a four room suite since he is a
HHonors Diamond guest! Yes, four actual rooms in his suite!
The breakfast was delicious! Call him Roy, Anirban Roy, License

Mexico. Here are pictures of Anirban going up and parasailing
high above the Caribbean Sea! It was a fun experience! Man
this guy sure travels! We were in Jamaica, and then Macau, and
Boy does Anirban have it rough on this
redeye flight in American's First Class cabin on an Airbus A321.
They only served a small fruit and cheese plate and warmed nuts instead
of a full meal, and the flight attendant did no offer a predeparture
beverage. Boo! He did get his usual drink on American
Airlines, Woodford Reserve in the air. He was going cross country
loves the winter wonderland resorts also! He enjoyed the
snowshoeing experience in Lake Louise, Canada. Him and his wife
are cross country skiing at the
beautiful Sun Valley Resort in Idaho in the second picture above.
They go to Sun Valley every President's Day Weekend to enjoy the peace
and quiet of the luxury ski resort!
Anirban is a huge sports fan
also! He will travel far for his teams also since his teams are
all based in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex! That's right!
He is a Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks, and Dallas
Stars fan! In 2019, Anirban booked a flight on short notice to
fly down to Los Angeles to see his Cowboys play the Rams in the NFC
Divisional Playoff Game at LA Memorial Coliseum. Since he is a
high roller (well has elite status with his rental car company of
choice), they had a nice Camaro ready for him at the airport in Long
Beach. He proudly displayed his Cowboys flag as he was driving
through the streets of the greater Los Angeles area that weekend!
He got photobombed by a Rams fan too.
Let us get
back to some fine dining. Anirban is a big FOODIE! He has
dined at some of the top restaurants in the world. Zagat Rated,
Michelin Starred, or a James Beard winner, he has enjoyed fine cuisine
at many restaurants who have one or more of these prestigious awards in
the culinary arena. Let us share a fine dining experience
now. Anirban ate at Jose Andres' Bazaar Meats in Las Vegas in
2018. This top five steakhouse in the country features an amazing
tasting menu. The restaurant created a private tasting menu with
six courses and two side accompaniments for Anirban's group that
mignon chateau briande was the best meat he ever had. It
was served with papas canarias (or Canary Island style potatoes) and
asparagus! Bazaar Meat in Las Vegas is the best!
The assorted dessert platter was
amazing too at Bazaar Meat! The wrappers on the chocolates are edible!

An invitation was left for
Anirban at his seat for a VIP event at the game.

game. | He met Mark Cuban too after the game!
Anirban is a VIP most places he goes. Whether
he is skipping a long line at a club to get to his private booth or
taking part in amazing experiences like throwing a free throw at a NBA
game, he gets to really do some cool things! In the pictures
above, Anirban was treated as a VIP at a Dallas Mavericks and
Sacramento Kings game. He was invited to a special VIP event at
halftime, tried a free throw on the court after the game, and even met
Mark Cuban and got his autograph! Want more pictures of Anirban's

What is Anirban holding

to having fun!

Wonders of the World also like the ones below! Want to explore
his travel pictures in detail, click here!

two nice destinations that he has been. I will let you check the
rest of the travel section of his web site to see them all! This
is Anirban in Delta's First Class cabin once again. He prefers to
fly Delta for domestic flights since their first class service is a
little better than the other domestic US airlines. I think you
can see there is a "royal" theme to the pictures below. They are
all current or former palaces or royal residences. Anirban is
actually royalty too. No kidding? Anirban's family goes
back to the days of "rajas" in India under British Rule. So, you
may address him as His Highness if you want. Just Kidding.

Cusco, he knew they outdid the Scottish lamb!

Where are they going in a limo? Anirban had two
bachelor parties since we has a large group of friends throughout the
country. The first bachelor party was in Las Vegas. The
guys are about to go out on a night on the town with VIP access to the
club! Technically, Anirban had two official bachelor parties, but
some say the gentlemen's only trip to the Dominican Republic should
count also as a bachelor party. LOL. He also had a buddy
fly in for a fun weekend in Reno since he could not make either of the
sorbet course to cleanse the
pallet is always nice! I trust you agree with us?
May I pour
a little champagne in your sorbet course, Mr.

years in American Oak before having Spanish staves touch it. As
it crosses the Atlantic, it is finished in South American teak!
