This epic journey combines the fascinating historical and natural highlights of north India. It showcases the region’s sheer diversity: from the contrasts of Old and New Delhi, the magnificent Taj Mahal, wild Bengal tigers, and splendid forts and palaces of Jaipur and Udaipur; to leopard spotting in relatively-unknown Jawai Band to the vast golden sands of the Thar Desert. It’s ideal for anyone who wants to feel India’s dramatic natural landscapes alongside its impressive architectural gems. All while experiencing some of the region’s most elegant accommodation (and having lots of time to enjoy them). Our Luxury India Honeymoon tour is the stuff of fairy-tales. But remember, it’s merely a starting point designed to give you an idea of what’s possible. And it’s not just for honeymooners either!
When landing in Jaisalmer, a member of our team will accompany you to your luxury desert camp – The Serai. An oasis in the desert, The Serai offers a truly luxurious experience in Rajasthan. There are 21 tents, though the word ‘tent’ is a bit of a misnomer; each offers a private veranda, a drawing-room, and an en-suite shower room. Combining locally sourced products, such as traditional dhurries (rugs) and Jaisalmer stone tiling, with state of the art technology, The Serai offers all the facilities one would expect of a luxury hotel while remaining at home in the surroundings. This evening, a private Jeep awaits for a safari through the desert scrub, spotting indigenous wildlife and local shepherds with their herds. A camel ride will transport you for the last leg of your journey over to the private dunes, where a butler will be waiting with champagne and canapés while you take in the famous desert sunset.
Optionally, rather than retrace your steps back to Delhi, you may prefer to end your luxury India honeymoon in Mumbai with a two-night stay at the famed Taj Mahal Palace, The Oberoi Mumbai, or The Leela Mumbai. (Here’s our recommendation on how to spend 72 hours in Mumbai). The possibilities don’t end there: those with a keen interest in colonial history may like to extend their journey with a stay at The Oberoi Grand in Kolkata (here we have a fabulous extension itinerary). Or take in the majestic Himalayan foothills at the Oberoi Wildflower Hall in Shimla (in which case, do check out our sample trip). You could even visit the awe-inspiring Ajanta and Ellora Caves. Alternatively, end with a few days on the beach in Goa, staying in a boutique hotel by the sea. If your schedule doesn’t allow for the full 21 nights, we can comfortably remove the third night in Ranthambhore, Jaipur, Jawai and Jaisalmer, or an entire destination or two. All our tours are private, and tailor-made to complement your taste and interests. In essence, the itinerary described above is just a starting point, and together we can refine it into your ideal Indian experience.
