Top Five Reasons to Choose Luxury Holidays in India

Over the past few years, India has attained the global recognition as a popular South Asian destination. The major drivers of tourism in this country are history, heritage, culture and religion. But India is fast drawing attention of the overseas travelers as a favored destination for luxury vacations. The fruitful effects of liberalization are evident in the development of tourist destinations and opening up of world class hotels & resorts. Luxury holidays in India offer a seamless blend of state of the art infrastructure and traditional Indian hospitality. In this article, I have listed top five reasons to choose luxury holidays in India.

Luxury Trains

Luxury train travel is the first and the foremost reason to choose luxury holidays in India. Gone are the days when overseas travelers use to worry about the infamous reputation of Indian railways. With a total of six luxury tourist trains running in India such as Palace on Wheels, Royal Rajasthan on Wheels, Indian Maharaja, Deccan Odyssey, Golden Chariot and the Maharajas’ Express, luxury train travel in India has attained a new high.

Heritage Hotels

India is a country ruled by raja-maharajas in the medieval era. However the concept of princely India got vanished soon after the independence. Due to the high maintenance expenditure, most royal families entered into a treaty with the corporate hotel chains which led to the conversion of their residences into five star heritage hotels. A large chunk of heritage hotels is found in Rajasthan owing to its royal history. Some popular names of heritage hotels include the Umaid Bhawan Palace, Taj Lake Palace, Samode Palace and Poovath Heritage hotel in Kerala.

Ayurvedic Holidays

The ancient Indian healing science of Ayurveda and Vedanta is also a part of luxury holiday packages offered in India. When it comes to Ayurvedic holidays in India, Kerala is truly unbeatable. The state is home to an array of award winning Ayurvedic centers & resorts that clubs holistic treatments with luxurious stay. Rated as the No. 1 Destination Spa by Travel + Leisure Magazine, Ananda in the Himalayas is a globally renowned destination that offers an array of therapeutic and beauty treatments by blending the concept of Indian Ayurveda and western spa treatments.

Sumptuous Food

The diversity of India is not hidden from anyone and that reflects in the food served here. Be it Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala or Goa, each state has some unique to offer. While East Indians are very fond of non-vegetarian food, West Indians generally love their desserts. In the South, rice is the staple diet and used in many of their cuisines such as Idli, Payasam, Dosa and Wada. Rajasthani dishes are spicy while Gujarat is known for their sweet dishes.

Beach and Backwater Tours

Goa and Kerala are the most acclaimed beach destinations in the world. The unruffled ambience and cosmopolitan ambience are the two reasons why tourists from far-off lands flock to these two states for the beach vacation. Backwater is the backbone of tourism in this state and the backwaters of Alleppey have been listed as one of the ’50 must visit destinations before you die’ by the National Geographic Traveler magazine.

Chelsea Tower Hotel Apartments – Excellent Dubai Accommodation

post-image

Our flight landed on Dubai International Airport, and after collecting our luggage we headed straight to get a taxi which is available just as you step out of the airport. Surprisingly, we reached Chelsea Tower Hotel Apartments in just about 15 minutes. Enroute, got out of the taxi to see the majestic Burj Khalifa Tower with all its grandeur; towering above us.

Check- in process was fairly simple and quick. Diana the receptionist was understanding enough to get over with the process as fast as possible seeing how exhausted we were after the long flight. It was quite a busy time, I suppose, because the lobby was filled with people and that made it look so vibrant. There were 5 lifts so one never had to wait longer than a minute.

Fast forward to the room on the 41st floor, gigantic and beautiful with huge windows and a balcony that overlooked…

How to Make the Best of Your Short Transit Period at Dubai International Airport

post-image

If you are going to be in Dubai in transit or on a layover for a few hours, it’s better to stay in the airport than to venture out to see the city for a number of reasons.  At the top of the list is the fact that the roads in Dubai are notorious for heavy traffic, and if you are caught in a traffic jam it might become very difficult to get back to your terminal in time for your next flight.  Since the airport handles a lot of flight traffic, the crowds at the airport terminals are usually high, which makes it tougher to get to your gate on time.

Lounges

There are many dedicated lounges for various international airlines like the British Airlines, KLM, Star Alliance, Air France and Gulf Air.  Emirates has separate lounges for Business Class and First Class travelers.  In addition to this, you…

Thinking About Filming With a Drone Above Dubai? Think Again

post-image

A guide for film enthusiasts wishing to film from the UAE’s skies.

Its Dubai 2016, and although we do not have flying cars and hover boards (at least, not real ones), we do have flight drones, and lots of them. While most people who own high-end models of drone aircraft do so for professional use, an increasing number of people have purchased the machines simply as toys. What many of them do not know (including a large number of film production companies in Dubai) is that drone usage with a camera within the UAE is illegal, without the correct permissions and permits.

Recently The UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has asked light air sports enthusiasts, including drone enthusiasts, to fly their aircraft only in accredited clubs approved by the authority to address safety and security issues. Most notably, the GCAA also warned drone hobbyists against equipping their vehicles with laser…

Choosing the Right Airline Travel Agency

post-image

A good and reliable airline travel agency unlocks more options and a wider range of services compared to what can be searched on the internet. Moreover, being able to converse with real people at a physical location is found to be more convenient and comforting to many flight customers. It is significant to know that in case any problems occur, there is a travel agency to help resolve the conflict.

Generally, anyone can claim to have travel agencies just by operating businesses. In the United States, it is said that the eleven states which demand business registration only call for filling out of a form and paying fees. With these, the bigger problem lies on which travel agency a customer can trust for the hassle-free experience when it comes to buying airplane tickets. This article will discuss the several factors that customers may consider in choosing the right airline travel…

Flights are expensive. I often have enough hotel and car points to get rooms and rentals free, but I’ll still break the bank if I go on the trip because of the flight alone.

The thing is, eventually I wanted to go outside of driving distance. Who doesn’t want to see the world? Luckily, there are certain destinations that are routinely cheaper than others. If you’re able to book early and get the right price, you might get a HUGE break.

1. Chicago: Consistently the cheapest flight price from basically anywhere in the U.S., Chicago is such a mid-country hub that airlines luckily make it easy for virtually anyone to get there.

The Astrology of "The Day the Music Died"

post-image

On the morning of 3 February 1959, America woke up to the dreadful news that three of its most beloved performers, Buddy Holly, J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson and Ritchie Valens, along with the pilot, Roger Peterson, had perished in a plane crash.

Two of these musicians, J. P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson and Ritchie Valens “won” their seats and were never meant to be on that plane. The musicians who gave up their seats, Tommy Allsup and Waylon Jennings (Buddy Holly’s “Crickets”), had very lucky escapes. With Venus opposite Pluto in the chart of the crash, the victims of the crash notably left behind loved ones: Peterson was newly married, Valens, the youngest victim, had a sweetheart named Donna and The Big Bopper left behind his pregnant wife and young child. Holly also left behind a pregnant wife who subsequently miscarried due to the shock of hearing of his…
