These 8 Weekend Getaways Are Less Than 4 Hours Away From Gurgaon

    Take a break from all that work, work, work and check into some of these properties the next time a long weekend comes around. All under four hours away from the concrete jungle that is G-Town, these weekend getaways are perfect for a quick bout of rest and recreation.

    Tijara Fort Palace, Alwar

    Each of the suites and rooms at this gorgeous property by Neemrana Hotels has been named after 21 of India’s most famous women painters, such as the Anju Mahal or the Pushpmala Mahal. Their artwork adorns the walls of these namesake rooms as a celebration of their legacy.

    Walks in their terrace gardens, a holistic treatment at the spa and a trip to the natural spring of Surajmukhi – this sounds like the perfect recipe for relaxation. Don’t forget to stop by the Sariska Wildlife Sanctuary, maybe you’ll spot some tiger stripes among the wilderness!

    It’s a little pricey but hey, it’s only one weekend.

    Distance from Gurgaon: 1 hr, 52 minutes

    Heritage Village Resort & Spa, Manesar

    First of all, the Heritage Village Resort & Spa in Manesar scores big because it’s a pet-friendly resort! There’s nothing worse than going on vacay without your best friend {who can leave when big puppy eyes stare you down?} and every pet-owner will agree.

    A gym, jogging tracks, spa, pool, a trip to Damdama Lake and the Sultanpur Bird Sanctuary, with lots and lots of down-time as well, should cover you for two days.

    Distance from Gurgaon: About 40 minutes

    The Hill Fort, Kesroli

    The fun thing about this property is that it is equidistant from Agra, Jaipur and Delhi, so maybe you could even squeeze in a day trip to the Pink City for some lassi and a plate of kachoris on MI Road, after sightseeing. More than comfortable, The Hill Fort offers opportunities to unwind at the resort itself too.

    Distance From Gurgaon: 2 hours, 50 minutes

    Aravali Resorts, Rewari

    If you can only get away for one night, we suggest checking out Aravali Resorts in Rewari. The highlight at this resort is the huge variety of outdoor activities you can sign up for. They’re equipped with paintball, rappelling, Zorbing and valley-crossing facilities so you can get those endorphins flowing.

    Distance from Gurgaon: 1 hour, 9 minutes

    Fort Unchagaon, Garhmukteshwar

    This one clocks in at just a little over four hours but we thought it deserved a mention anyway. Primarily because the area in which Fort Unchagaon is situated is well-known for river dolphin sighting! In addition to that, the hotel offers a plethora of activities such as boat cruises, bullock cart rides, pottery, horse riding and a visit to the mango orchards.

    The rooms are super comfy, clean and perfect for afternoon naps.

    Distance from Gurgaon:  4 hours, 22 minutes

    Lalit Mangar

    Located on the Gurgaon-Faridabad highway, this one is definitely a splurge. Two nights in opulent luxury – the rooms at the Lalit Mangar afford some really stunning views of the Aravallis which you can admire from the balcony. There’s lots of fun stuff to do on the property as well including yoga and pottery classes and a romantic night of stargazing.

    The Lalit Mangar makes for a wonderful trip-for-two, especially if you’re ready to take things to the next level.

    Distance From Gurgaon: About 40 minutes

    Kuchesar Fort, Uttar Pradesh

    The very famous Mud Fort HAD to make it to the list! This fort, built in the 1700s, has a crazy tale to tell. Enjoy the princely treatment at the fort and take a break at the vast forest cover the place lies in. Although the accommodation is on the higher side, it sure is worth the experience.

    Distance From Gurgaon: About 3 hours

    Tiger's Den Sariska

    Spend your weekend amongst the wild at Sariska Tiger Reserve. Located very closely to the national park is Tiger's Den Hotel. They offer spacious and affordable accommodation, have a view of lush green trees and a big garden for kids to play at/ elderly to gupshup at/ every body to sunbathe at. Sariska national park gives you an astounding glimpse of the forest life (you'll probably see Nilgai and Sambhar, and might get lucky if you spot wild boars, Leopards and Langurs).

    Distance From Gurgaon: About 3 hours 20 minutes
