Travelling can be tiring, especially in India where your senses are constantly stimulated, so ending your trip with a few quiet days of R&R – by the beach, or in the mountains, backwaters or desert for that matter – will leave you refreshed for your return home.
Being the dutiful worker that I am, for many years I have thoroughly researched and documented the best locations and hotels for unwinding in India – the best beaches and beach-side accommodation, the best mountain views and wellness resorts, the most stylish boutique hotels – all by first-hand trial and error of course. It’s been tough going, staying in so many fabulous resorts and private hideaways, but I now have a firm grasp of the many options for enjoying some Rest and Relaxation in India.
Many of the properties listed below also make for wonderful honeymoon locations.
When you make an inquiry, please mention that you would like to include some ‘R&R’ at the end of your travels and we’ll be sure to suggest a suitable place and accommodation options to choose from.
