Where we stay!

delhi

Welcome to Delhi, the capital of India and where our 13 day adventure begins! Our comfortable hotel is perfectly located for us to explore both sides of this exciting city. Wander the bustling narrow streets of the old town and admire the grand colonial buildings of the new.

 

The hotel has a great restaurant where you can enjoy the included breakfast. Rooms are spacious with air-con and Wi-Fi.

 

udaipur

Udaipur is known as the most romantic city in India and our heritage hotel is right in the heart of it. We’ve got all the city sights right on our doorstep and the beautiful lake is just a 10 minute walk away.

 

pushkar

We’ll be staying on the edge of the holy town of Pushkar next. With easy reach to the town but close to the nature of the desert, our hotel is the perfect place to relax after a busy day of sightseeing! Admire the views from your cottage, go for a swim in the infinity pool and enjoy a traditional dinner at the cosy restaurant.

Pushkar is a sacred pilgrimage site which means you won’t find anywhere to buy alcohol in the city but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Relax at the hotel’s lounge with a cocktail in hand as you look up at the starlit sky. Sounds dreamy right?

 

jaipur

The pink city is calling! We’re staying in another charming heritage hotel that’s right in the centre of Jaipiur, but set back from the hustle and bustle of the main roads. Built around a pretty courtyard with a pool in the middle, this is the best place in the city for us to chill and reminisce about the trip so far!

 

Enjoy everything that comes with a heritage hotel including the fabulous service and home cooked meals plus everything that modern hotels offer like air-con and TVs in the rooms.

 

ranthambore

One of the highlights of the trip, we’re heading to Ranthambore next and our 4 star hotel is just just 10 minutes away from the National Park. With a pool, lush gardens, an authentic restaurant and a well stocked bar, it has everything we need to relax after an early morning safari!

All rooms are air-conditioned and Wi-Fi can be found throughout the hotel so you’ll be able to upload those incredible safari pics to make everyone at home jealous!

agra

Last and certainly not least, our hotel in Agra is a modern hotel with everything we need for our night here, and more! An infinity rooftop pool, two restaurants and our personal favourite, the Sky deck. Agra is home to the Taj Mahal and it’s only right that we stay in a hotel with views of this magnificent Wonder of the World. Head to the sky deck to take a look for yourself. This really is a pinch me moment!
