Travel and Lifestyle Writer. Independent Hotel & Restaurant Reviewer. Features Writer.

Thank you for visiting the portfolio of Joanna Lester-George. I am a British Freelance Writer who has lived and travelled all over the world, and who has made Goa in South India my main HQ since 2006. With a strong background in creative writing, I have been writing professionally for travel guides and magazines for many years - a job which I love.

Being a Freelance Travel Writer works perfectly alongside my role as the Founder of KOKOindia Luxury Travels. KOKOindia is a luxury travel consultancy for India specialising in stylish holidays, retreats and safaris. Every bespoke holiday is designed on the basis of firsthand and personal recommendations - which means I get to travel extensively around India for 'research purposes.' Many years of working in the travel industry have afforded me the opportunity to review hundreds of hotel, dining and destination experiences, some samples of which can be found here.

I have devised the full content for my company website, as well as for many other hotel and retreat websites. I continue to create ongoing reviews and humorous tales of life in India across various social media platforms, and you can find my new blog at

With a strong understanding of the technical and creative writing skills essential for writing and editing projects, I am happy to receive commissions for features and articles on a wide range of topics. I also provide proofreading and content for websites and marketing campaigns. I look forward to hearing from you - please write to me at
