Valentine's Day Special: Give These Romantic Getaways Around Delhi A Shot
2020 single-handedly cancelled all those extensive travel plans with our dearly beloved. If a romantic getaway is what you seek this Valentine's Day but wish to stay away from destinations where you may rub elbows with other lovey-dovey couples at the dinner table (thanks, but no thanks), here are some places you need to check out. And since self-isolation is the new (and required) norm, what's better than staying in places that have stunning views and so much more to offer.
Time to cosy up, you love-birds! This is our list of romantic getaways near Delhi.
The Tree Of Life Resort & Spa, Jaipur
With luxurious private villas built tastefully with sandstone and lime, this boutique resort is one of the exquisite properties of Tree Of Life Resorts & Hotels. It has 13 private villas with stunning interiors and an even better view surrounding them. Pick from deluxe villas for your stay, and spend your nights cosying in the private pool. They even have a couples outdoor spa if you’re looking for something a little more intimate.
Price: Rooms start at INR 18,000 per night
Note: Prices may fluctuate.
Norwood Green, Palampur
Located in the beautiful valley of Palampur, Norwood Green offers a breathtaking view of the Bundla tea gardens. They have boutique cottages that are warm and inviting; you can go for a tour around the valley on bicycles, or even learn the art of pottery-making with your other half.
Price: Rooms start at around INR 6,000 per night
Punjabiyat Farm Resort, Amritsar
If your idea of romance is the sort that Raj and Simran shared in DDLJ, Punjabiyat is a place you may just be able to recreate that rustic experience at. Inspired by the authentic rural lifestyle of Punjab, this place has mud cottages (with four-poster beds), acres of farm lined with seasonal crops and tractors and tongas that you can hop on to for a quick ride around the farm.
Price: The standard rate for their cottages are INR 8,200 per night, until March 2021. Keep a lookout for discounts before you book.
Note: In order to book your stay with them, you'll have to pay for your rooms in advance. Once you connect with them, they'll send you an email with bank account details and other related information.
Take a luxury getaway to Suryagarh for an experience of how we imagine royalty once lived. Inspired by the beautiful Amer Palace near Jaipur, Suryagarh has suites and havelis (that come with a private terrace and butler!) to fully immerse yourself in. Don’t miss the Thar Dinner and Breakfast with Peacocks if you do end up going here.
Price: Each suite is priced differently. For instance, the Fort Room is approximately priced at INR 7,000 per night.
Note: Contact them to inquire about their revised reservation and cancellation policies.
28 Kothi, Jaipur
Sometimes you need a spot that feels like home but actually isn’t. For that, we present to you 28 Kothi. A boutique guesthouse, this property sits in central Jaipur but remains cut off from the hustle-bustle of the city. Hide out, read in their private library, dine in the courtyard bathed in warm night lighting, or get out and explore as much of Jaipur as you can. Either way, it promises to be personal and exciting.
Price: They have different packages with a base price of INR 7,900 approximately.
The Fort Unchagaon By Aspen, Garhmukteshwar
For a splash of luxury as you take a trip with your sweetie, look no further than Fort Unchagaon. A heritage property situated 100kms outside of the city, the place perfectly marries old-world charm with modern-day convenience (and royalty!). There’s plenty to do here; boat cruises, horse riding, outdoor games and, our favourite, river-dolphin sighting.
Price: The base price is 7,500 per night (approximately).
Note: The place is pet-friendly.
A quaint Bed and Breakfast situated in the majestic hills of Himachal, Khanabadosh is a beautiful homestay with a wonderful host and her furry buddies. If you and your partner share the love for books amongst other things, this place will be your solace.
Price: There are four rooms, each priced differently. The rates start at INR 9,500 (approximately).
Note: You'll be required to sign a Guest Self Declaration form which will be sent to you via an email.
Narendra Bhawan, Bikaner
If you're in a mood for a luxurious romantic getaway with a royal setting, you should definitely consider this. Dive into their magnificent infinity pool, relax in their stunning verandas or simply enjoy those after meal drinks in their grand Drawing Room.
Price: The rooms start at INR 6,500 per night
Note: The place is dog friendly and doesn't require any prior medical tests before entering the property.
Less than 10kms from the city, Tikli Bottom is ideal for when you need to re-connect with your partner when you don’t have enough time. With four rooms within the property, stroll hand-in-hand on their large, royal lawns or stay in and get a full-body massage. Our recommendation? Ask them to set you up outside, and spend the night having a deep conversation under the stars.
Price: The rooms start at INR 23,500 per night.
Note: No mandatory quarantine required at the moment.
