ROMANTIC FALL GETAWAYS. Take Your Bae To … India!By The DivaGals | October 12, 2016 | Lifestyle, Travel
Hey Divas! If you’re looking for an exotic and vibrant place to explore with your special other, India is the ideal place for a luxury getaway. While many places in the country are still majorly rural and underdeveloped, at the other end of the spectrum, huge busy cities such as Delhi are destinations for a couple looking for an exciting experience amongst local culture.
A romantic getaway should include some rest and relaxation, and coupling at a luxury resort could be the perfect backdrop. Luckily for us, we’ve handpicked our top four to give you a bit of inspiration.
Jungle Glamping. Does your man always want to take a camping trip? If you want to appease your bae’s sense of adventure, but don’t want to compromise on stylish accommodations, booking a stay at the Oberoi Vanyavilas could be your ideal option. One of the most iconic symbols of India is the stunning Bengal tiger, and this resort is situated a stone’s throw away from one of the best tiger reserves, Ranthambore. After you two enjoy a day out in nature, you can retire to your luxury canopied tent. But this is no soggy camping trip. Each tent comes with a triple layered roof and air conditioning, so whatever the weather you’ll be totally comfortable. You will also be able to enjoy a relaxing bath in the tent’s standalone tub, and dinner outside on your terrace can easily be arranged. It’s a perfect place for couples to escape for some romance.
Beach Tripping. Ready to go dancing all night with your boo? The name “Goa” often brings up visions of wild, hippie dance parties that go on until the early hours. While music and partying is a huge part of the culture on the western shore, it also serves as a stunning backdrop for you to relax in. The Royal Orchid Beach Resort (pictured up top) is spread across five acres where you can easily access the famous white beaches from there or take a dip in the Arabian Sea. Breakfast every day is also included in the price of your room, and there is an on-site spa where you can dually knock out your kinks!
Conscious Coupling. Your and your BF environmentally conscious. Book a vacation with a conscience by staying at an Indian eco-resort. The beauty of these places is that they are often surrounded by nature in remote locations. So if you two are looking to truly take some time out from everyday life, there is really no better option. At the Machan Resort in Jambulne, you can stay in a luxury treehouse, designed to minimize its effect on the natural environment.Waking up to the sound of birds, trees and crickets – what could possibly be better? It is just over two hours away from Mumbai, and an hour and half away from the city of Pune. If you are concerned about being too far away from “civilization,” check out an India travel forum to hear about other traveler’s experiences.
Tea Time! There’s nothing more refined than having tea time. And it’s alway nice to have your man dress up and pull out a chair. How about over a pot of Darjeeling tea? Growing ever popular in the western world, it’s a fragrant blend grown from Chinese tea plants, and normally served black. The region the tea originates from — unsurprisingly called Darjeeling — now offers entire holidays based around the product – and luxury ones at that.

Make it your afternoon outing while staying in Glenburn’s boutique hotel — the Kanchenjunga Suite the overlooks a stunning mountain range that you won’t be able to stop Instagramming!
