Seclude Ramgarh

Another hill station getaway, Seclude Ramgarh overlooks a lush, open valley and resplendent hills. The three-bedroom bungalow is built in a modern style, with traditional wood and stone finishing, and runs as a bed and breakfast. Unfortunately you may only book one room at a time, so this is not the place to take a group of friends.

Surajgarh Fort, Shekhawati

A beautiful Rajasthani fort situated in the Shekhawati region, the Surajgarh Fort is a quick, close and romantic getaway from Delhi. Take a dip in the pool or, if you’re in season, check out the valley for any celebrations {apparently all major Hindu festivals are hosted with aplomb here}. Considering you’re living in the lap of luxury the price isn’t so bad either! If you don’t want to go as just a couple, they are also a suitable location to host an event such as an engagement party or family function.
