Time to cosy up, you love-birds! This is our list of romantic destinations near Delhi.

If you like your romance a little on the wild side {we’re only talking about the location here}, The Homestead is located in the vicinity of Jim Corbett National Park, amidst ancient trees and wild creepers.

Pick from deluxe cottages, suites & rooms for your stay, and spend your nights cosying up near the bonfire. They even have a spa and jacuzzi if you’re looking for something a little more intimate.

The Bagh is a 200-year-old heritage property set in Bharatpur, Rajasthan. If you’re in the mood for a luxurious romantic getaway and a colonial setting, you should definitely consider this. Take a long walk in the lush green orchards, visit the Keoladeo Ghana National Park nearby, or just reconnect with each other in the quiet of your room.

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.

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.

Suryagarh

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.

Bon Farm House

Perfect for a quiet getaway in the hills, Bon Farm House is surrounded by six acres of lush green cardamom forests. You’ll get meals cooked with the freshest of products here, so good food is always taken care of.

You can go for nature walks and try your hand at cooking authentic Sikkimese cuisine as well. And if you’re in the mood for some relaxation, there’s a Dotho {a Sikkimese hot-stone herbal bath} you must not miss.

28 Kothi

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.

Tikli Bottom

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.

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.
