Here are a few such unique locations just for you!
Against the stunning backdrop of the world’s third highest peak, Kangchenjunga, lies scenic Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim. If trekking excites you, you’ve found your paradise! Club Mahindra’s royal retreat has large cabin-like rooms with balconies that offer an expansive view of the mountains. At Club Mahindra, you have access to a variety of entertainment options, whenever you please.
Get ready to experience the warm Sikkim tradition. Gangtok is a quaint city with Buddhist influence – make sure you don’t miss Enchey and Rumtek monasteries. Temples such as Ganesh Tok offer breathtaking views. Opt for a GoZest package for club Mahindra Gangtok to tour famous places in Sikkim, such as the picturesque Pelling town, or a glimpse of River Teesta from Lachen and Lachung.
Rajasthan is famous for its palaces, forts, and mansions, and Jaisalmer is no exception. But Jaisalmer is special because it is also your gateway to the vast Thar Desert. The desert’s sand dunes offer an exotic backdrop for your honeymoon. For a novel experience, try camping in the desert. Pick one of the many luxury tents for your stay – they provide all modern facilities for total comfort.
While there, you can look forward to camel rides, or go on a desert safari. Experience the rich culture of the state with local bards and dancers, and enjoy some culinary delights. After an eventful day, relax in the cool climate of the desert and gaze at the starry sky, or unwind in the comfort of your room. Club Mahindra Jaisalmer is an architectural delight built in the Haveli style of the region and gives you beautiful views of the Thar Desert.
If you wish to enjoy the bracing weather of a coffee plantation, head to hilly Coorg in the southern tip of Karnataka. Take a walk in the plantation, enjoy a swim, relax at a spa, or just cuddle in bed watching the misty mountainside through the window. Or hike to Abby falls; local guides take you through a hilly trail with crystal-clear streams and dense foliage.
Coorg maintains a fine balance of the old and the new. One of the largest Tibetan settlements in India is in Coorg at Bylakuppe. Club Mahindra resorts in Madikeri and Virajpet offer a luxurious stay with all modern amenities and a mesmerising view of the hills. A GoZest membership will help you plan your vacation and offer other benefits such as discounts.
Once a royal hunting ground, Ranthambore in eastern Rajasthan is now a tiger haven, founded to increase the population of the big cat. Also home to leopards, crocodiles, migratory birds, and various species of deer, the sanctuary gives you ample opportunity to spot fauna in the wild. Waterholes are the perfect location to spot a tiger or leopard, so book a safari to experience the wildlife up close.
With a backdrop of the fort, Ranthambore is an appealing combination of mystique and excitement. Unwind over a relaxing dinner amidst soft lights and a gentle breeze as you relive the day’s highlights. The fabulous local food is sure to tantalise your taste buds. Ranthambore is a truly an exotic honeymoon retreat for the adventurous.
Auli is called the Switzerland of India, and with good reason. Situated in Uttarakhand, amidst snowy peaks and dense coniferous forests, this is a great place to observe the mighty Nanda Devi peak up close. If you and your partner love skiing, Club Mahindra offers Clifftop Club, the second highest resort which offers a luxurious view of the Garhwal mountains. It is the only Skiing resort in Asia which is located right on a ski slope.
With bubbling streams, a placid lake, and the famous Valley of Flowers nearby, Auli offers a slice of paradise. When you’re done with skiing or a scenic cable car ride, chill over a relaxing dinner and enjoy the hospitality of the local community.
The Club Mahindra GoZest Classic and Premium packages offer you the best of amenities at 525 points and 675 points respectively. The point-based wallet offers an annual 7-day vacation with your loved ones across seasons and rooms of different types along with the option to carry forward unused points and advancing next year’s points.
