With a bunch of long weekends coming up in 2020 (woohoo), it's a good time to hit up Vizag — our beachy neighbour. While there's a lot to do in the city, Haritha Jungle Bells Resort in Araku Valley is where you should head to for quality time away from the city life. We'll tell you why. Standing tall amidst lush greenery, this eco-friendly cottage is packed with all the amenities you will need for a comfortable stay without compromising on its rustic vibe. This reminds us of the treehouse we wished we had when we were kids, and if you like a scenic view from your window, you're in for a treat.
In this cottage-style resort managed by the tourism board, you can splash in the pool to cool off, get a relaxing massage, go trekking and bird watching, and have a campfire with your mates. There's also a gym but let's be real, workouts are not for holidays.
What's the food scene, you ask? They have an in-house multi-cuisine restaurant where you can tuck into local delicacies with authentic flavours. With 18 chic cottage-style rooms to choose from, you can chill in the balcony and unwind to the sound of birds. Doesn't that sound peaceful?
Not just that, this resort is close to several touristy spots like Tribal Museum, Coffee Museum, Chaparai Water Cascade, and Borra Caves. With all those just a stone's throw away, a weekend getaway is sorted, right?
How To Reach: This resort is two hours away from Vizag airport and 13 hours away by road from Hyderabad.
