The Dacha

Like a cabin straight out of a fairytale, The Dacha is a little Swiss-style AirBnB located near Sadahalli. There’s a lovely patio where you can chill with your partner, a lawn to unwind in as you take in the view of Nandi Hills in the background and a fully-equipped kitchen to make pancakes for breakfast. If you’d rather snuggle in, there are plenty of places nearby that deliver food too!

Tariff: 2,850 per night 

Java Rain Resort

Glass cottages, unending coffee plantations and zen vibes all around – there’s no reason you won’t fall in love with Java Rain, in the hills of Chikmagalur. There’s a swimming pool to lounge in and no music, no electronic distractions to bother you during your time off. Plus, the food here is amazing. Think neer dosas, akki roti, chicken curry and fish. A perfect honeymoon, we think!

Tariff: INR 43,868 for two nights.

Tranquil Valley

A homestay that is all about ecotourism, Tranquil Valley is nestled in the middle of a tea plantation. Pick from nine rooms here, all facing outward onto the valley. There’s a patio you can chill in, or you can always head out and explore the streets and mountains of Munnar. You can even try your hand at tea plucking that the homestay will happily organize if you’re keen.

Tariff: INR 12,500 for two nights (with transport).

INR 7,000 for two nights (without transport).

Gratitude, Pondicherry

A little cocoon of calm, culture and art, Gratitude in Pondicherry is more like a homestay than a heritage home. They have different kinds of rooms. The breakfast, like the architecture here, is a mix of South Indian and French. For couples, Room No. 2, 6 and 8 are ideal. Just bear in mind that these rooms get booked quickly, so make your plans in advance. 

Tariff: INR 3,999 onwards for a night.

Treehouse – Sarjapur

Not so far from the city (in the Sarjapur-Attibele Road, to be specific) lies this lovely yet nameless property. The treehouse itself is minimally decorated. There’s a kitchenette (in case you want to wow bae with your cooking skills), AC, WiFi and TV. You can also indulge in a game of badminton here or catch a snooze in a hammock. That’s the life, no?

Tariff: INR 3,000 per night.

Marigold Villa, Cochin

Nearly picture-perfect, Marigold Villa in Cochin is all exposed brick walls, wooden accents and rafters. The bedrooms are so artistic, it’s like living in an indie film. There’s a pool to lounge by, and breakfast is included in the tariff!

Tariff: INR 9,500 per night.
