Alternative Christmas In India

Run by: Wild Frontiers

Reference number: RCX

From: £2645.00

Castle Bijaipur is a charming heritage hotel. Situated in the heart of the spectacular Aravali Hills of Rajasthan and surrounded by forests of tamarisk, unspoiled rural villages, lakes and ancient temples; it is the perfect location for walks, horse rides, painting, bird watching or simple relaxation. At Wild Frontiers we consider this our slightly smarter but equally charming version of the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel as depicted in the 2012 film.

Facilities on offer include a swimming pool, a masseur, bicycles and a stable full of beautiful Marwari horses. Yoga (suitable for beginners as well as the more advanced) is on offer every day to help you unwind, and the beautiful lake city of Udaipur is only a couple of hours away. Besides the delights of the castle, this trip is all about exploring rural India from the comfort of the same place; a gentle land of bullock carts and bicycles, of elegant sari-clad women carrying water urns from the wells, or turbaned men working in the fields, of wandering elephants and€companying sadhus.

Most trips to India rush from one place to another with barely enough time to see the sights, never mind experience the living culture. All in all, this makes for one of our favourite trips and the perfect way to enjoy a well-earned Christmas break.
