Ten-Second Takeaway

Tikli Bottom is a haveli turned guest house, with palatial lawns and nature in abundance. Only six kms away from the city, we recommend that you bookmark this for a quiet weekend getaway.

Hiding From Reality

Despite its proximity to Delhi, Tikli Bottom is cut-off, nestled among the Aravali Hills with a sparkling pool in the middle of the property. They have only four rooms and the owners, Martin and Annie Howard, live on the property too.

The Perks

Want to spend a night sleeping under the stars sans the camping fatigue? Ask them to arrange it and they’ll move a charpai out to their lawn, complete with a mosquito net. Glamping in style indeed.

Everything Else

Their food is organic—grown on the property and cooked fresh. Your personal quarters have dressing rooms and tubs too. We think that more relaxation is in order and thus we suggest that you, like us, book yourselves a full body massage and reflexology session. It’ll come at an extra cost, but it’s worth it.

We’re Telling You

They shut shop from April to July, and we recommend the winter months for a break from the concrete jungle at their property. Pick a long weekend, plan in advance {they’re booked most of the time} and head to Tikli Bottom to de-stress!
