India, being the country of numerous diversities, has a lot to offer. There are options for budget tours, luxury and ultra-luxury tours and many more options for you. If you have the time and money, you can get as much pampering and comfort as you want! The problem is knowing how much to spend for getting the true ‘luxurious’ experience.
The definition for luxury can be different for each person. For those staying in posh city apartments, luxury can mean being in the lap of nature or some adventurous activities or visiting an old village. For a person staying in a faraway countryside, however luxury can mean a posh big room with all in-house facilities like a bathtub with hot water, extra-large beds and so on. In this article we list out a few tips for you to choose the right luxury experience that can make your trip special for years to come.
Choosing the hotel that suits your needs is important. You can choose to stay in a resort, homestay, heritage palace, theme hotels and many others, based on what kind of experience and memories you want to collect. If your intention is to see maximum number of places of the city, a hotel with all the facilities like room service, shower, private balcony, hairdryer, refrigerator, minibar, a desk and a comfortable bed is all you will need to spend the night and get ready for the next day. Additionally, services like Breakfast and dinner will ease your worries of searching good food elsewhere.
If you want to have a relaxed vacation with only one or two places covered in a day and spend the rest of your time at the accommodation itself, a homestay or resort with spa, swimming pool, fitness centre, badminton/tennis court, golf, camping and other entertainment facilities will give a more enriching overall experience to your trip.
When choosing the hotel, always look for the additional services and how many of them you would actually want to use!
The luxury cruise liners are always bustling with activities and will give a wholesome experience to your trip. Don’t get confused with the word ‘luxury’, it actually only means that the services are lavish, but the prices are still affordable! There are plenty of cruises available which have all modern amenities for the guest and in-house entertainment like dance performances, live music and other activities that highlight the heritage and culture of India.
The cruises have suites which are fully air-conditioned, have large beds and bathrooms equipped with shower. There is also TV and you can have picturesque sea views from the windows.
