Where to Stay

In a country as vast and varied as India, choosing where to stay can be a delightful dilemma. From the historical neighbourhoods of Delhi to the tranquil backwaters of Kerala, let's explore some of the best places to create your own Indian tales.

For a family holiday

Consider the heritage-rich Jaipur, perfect for immersing the family in history and culture, or venture south to Kerala where the slower paced backwaters offer ample space to relax whilst absorbing the rich, natural beauty.

For a couples holiday

For romantic escapades, Udaipur, known as the 'Venice of the East' offers picturesque lakes and opulent palaces. Alternatively, the serene tea gardens and panoramic hills in Darjeeling provide a charming setting for any blossoming or enduring love stories.

For a holiday with friends

If it's a lively holiday with friends you're after, the buzzing streets of Mumbai offer an exhilarating mix of entertainment, shopping, and a vibrant nightlife. On a different beat, Rishikesh, the world capital of yoga, bestows many opportunities for spiritual growth and wellness amidst the tranquillity of the Himalayas.

When to Visit

India's weather is as vibrant as its cultural tapestry, making it a year-round destination depending on your chosen locale. Generally, winter months from October to March offer relatively cooler and comfortable weather, perfect for sightseeing and exploration. However, if you are lured by the enchanting landscapes of the Himalayas or the serene beaches of South India, summer months from April to June are ideal for these destinations. Monsoon season (June to September) can be exceptionally rewarding too, especially in Kerala, when the lush landscapes are at their peak, adorned by a captivating serenity. Finely tune your preferences, and uncover the perfect time for your Indian escapade.
