Holiday in a luxury hotel in India with Small Luxury Hotels of the World to enjoy the harmony of Mogul architecture and savour subtle flavours of blended spices. Kingfishers dive into the Kabini River with a flash of iridescent turquoise in southern Kerala.
Luxury city breaks in India
From your boutique hotel in Jaipur, visit the pink-washed Palace of the Winds and the Amber Fort where delicate mirror-work reflects paintings of Rajput hunting scenes. Intricate floral designs inlaid with precious stones represent paradise at Agra’s Taj Mahal whose domes and minarets glow at dusk or dawn against a dark blue sky. At Udaipur, the balconies and cupolas of the granite and marble City Palace are reflected in Pichola Lake.
Luxury beach holidays in India
Luxuriate in a thermal spring Arambol or spot nesting Olive Ridley turtles on the unspoilt white sand of Mandrem beach. You can rent a private kettu vallam boat in Kollam to float through paddy fields and temples and enjoy an exclusive dinner of blue marlin cooked on board by lantern light. At Kochi marvel at the sight of Chinese fishing nets lowered into the sea from Vasco da Gama Square.
Luxury India countryside retreats
As you tour a coffee plantation at Coorg between cardamom jungle and rugged mountains, the heady aroma of white coffee blossom fills the air. A luxury Ayurvedic massage with herbal oils to balance mind and body is the perfect foil for the excitement of white water rafting in Ramnagar’s Kosi River or coming face to face with leopard or panther at Peppara sanctuary amidst the jungle of the Western Ghats.
Book a luxury boutique holiday in India with Small Luxury Hotels of the World to experience palatial marble rooms, purchase emeralds in Jaipur’s exclusive gem markets and perhaps even spot a Bengal Tiger on a luxury safari.
