We know that you and your family are missing travel and the magical moments it brings: from lazy afternoons at the beach or poolside, to treks in the wild, and from bonfire evenings to refreshing spa sessions. This World Family Day, Club Mahindra has made a video to tell you that just as you miss travel, we also miss you.
The video shows memories playing on an old movie projector, to capture the inner longing for the soft sands, cool waves, fresh mountain air, and sandstone palaces that resides in every traveller. It is our way to honour your visits to Club Mahindra's resorts where we got wonderful opportunities to serve you and offer experiences that made each moment magical.
Also, we’re overwhelmed with the way you have shared your heartwarming travel stories with us in our community. We’re sharing some of the travel experiences below to encourage you to share yours with us.
Our Member Bhavna reminisces about her trips to Coorg
I was newly married then. We both were posted in Bangalore. My parents came down to us and took us to Coorg. That was my first trip to Club Mahindra Madikeri with my boyfriend-turned-husband. After our traditional welcome, they served coffee - the one I never had before! Our bags got arranged in the beautiful ground-floor apartment in LYCHEE. We all had fun posing as drivers/passengers in the golf cart. The photo session took a while.
The next morning our usual joyride of the holiday started with playing Chess, Table Tennis followed by exploring and browsing through this sprawling resort leisurely. We finally participated in zipline adventure sports and had a lovely time in floor chess. In the activity zone, my husband played a prank with my parents. He brought the placard SENIOR CITIZENS CORNER and placed it on the table they were sitting. It had us engulf in laughter as both my parents were not senior citizens then. It was Christmas time, and the warmth of the Sun with a pleasant winter made it all sync so well that we had a luxurious time roaming about in the resort endlessly. The evening unfolded with the carnival time – we played a lot of games and won as many. The decorations and the bling-bling lighting made the atmosphere super lively.
By 11 pm we called it a day and hit our beds. We were there just for 2 nights as our parents had to attend a wedding in Bangalore. But those 2 days filled us with memories and gave us fabulous family time. We now have a seven-year-old daughter. We look forward to revisiting all Club Mahindra resorts that we visited before she arrived. Our family is complete, and we wish to revive all our memories – with her as the fifth member of our family – my parents, my husband, me, and our darling angel. The most riveting part is - she grew up holidaying with Club Mahindra - the only difference being - what was CUB MINDA at age 2 has now become CLUB MAHINDRA. Wherever she goes, she makes Youtube videos of the resort, praises of CM, and uploads them on the Instagram handle.
Club Mahindra member, Debashish shared his experience of a recent family trip to Club Mahindra Emerald Palms, Goa
Strong family bonding is what makes us Indians stand out. We as Indians value our family life the most. Our life revolves around our family members. We learn living life from our family values and traditions. During this pandemic, however, we rediscovered our family values and realized the significance of strong family bonding. The one and only thing that is standing like a rock in these difficult times is our strong family life. Parents spending time with children, playing with them, children knowing parents, elderly parents finding children with them, and so on are making us weather the storm.
Club Mahindra is one organization that makes an effort to give the opportunity to spend quality time with family. During my recent visit to Emerald Palms, Goa, I just inquisitively asked the front desk as to why there is no wifi facility in the rooms. I was delighted to hear the response - "Club Mahindra wants you to spend time with family while holidaying with them and not get glued to the smartphones...this is our concept of holidaying". So rightly said. It made me convinced that I have taken the right decision to become a Club Mahindra member. With a holiday experience in 7 resorts in the last three years, I can assure you that Club Mahindra makes all efforts to ensure that one gets to spend the best holiday with his family. Be it happy hub activities or adventures planned by them or cultural programs, all the experiences are family-centric. In this ongoing pandemic, life had come to a standstill and children were getting bored at home. BUT thanks to CM, I could take them on holiday to Goa with assured safety and opportunity of full enjoyment. I urge everyone to live their family life to the fullest; utilize God-given opportunity to build a strong family bonding, raise their children to become successful and good human beings; care for their elderly parents by just being with them - they don't expect anything else. The concept and philosophy of Club Mahindra is to bring a family together, so be part of them, if you already are not. Great Job CM Team.
One of our members shares her experience of a family trip to Mussorie
Fam-bash in Club Mahindra, Mussoorie. It was April 2019, after 2 months of my wedding. I m the only child of my parents and was missing my mom dad a lot. My husband planned this special vacation with my mom, dad, mom-in-law, and father-in-law. We six had the best times of our life. We were lucky to get the 3BR set at Club Mahindra, Mussoorie on our special request. We all stayed together and realized the strong bonding that we shared. I came much closer to my in-laws and my husband came closer to my parents. Most magical and memorable trip with my family. Thank you, CM.
Our member Gaganpreet who visited Club Mahindra Varca, Goa shares his experience
If Great Holidays by Club Mahindra are the way of life, my advice is to PLAY ON!!! Our holiday to Club Mahindra Varca Beach is truly family-oriented as it takes the kids and us away from the digital screens into a world of sensational sunsets, serene beaches, the waves and not to forget the scrumptious cuisines. Sounds like a home away from home? Definitely yes...that's what we felt!!!
A senior couple, Jaskinder and his wife remembers their trip to Naldehra
We had an amazing break at Club Mahindra Naldehra. Serene and beautiful, Club Mahindra Pristine Peaks. Loved every moment of our stay. Everything was perfect - the place, food, hospitality, Happy Hub activities, weather, trek, village lunch and an occasional visit to the Shimla mall road.
Our member Ruchi shares her family trip to Club Mahindra Corbett
Family is one of the most important things in our lives. Taking time every day to appreciate your loved ones for all that they do, helps us to reconnect as a family. All trips with your loved ones are precious but if I talk about one of them, then it's a trip to Jim Corbett in June end. Trips are made up of great stories- filled with emotions, joy, and fun. After a hectic and busy schedule of daily life as we are living in a metropolitan city like Delhi filled with a lot of pollution, we planned a holiday to Club Mahindra Corbett. The environment was very soothing. The property was located at a prime location by the riverside. The food was very delicious and lip-smacking. My kids enjoyed the amazing fun activities and swimming. The theme nights also kept entertaining us. The staff was also helpful and cooperative. At last, I just want to say that " take only memories to leave only footprints". The memories we make with our family are everything and if they are with Club Mahindra.....they’re simply awesome!!!!!
We love to hear about your travel experiences with Club Mahindra. It encourages us to craft even better experiences for our members. Club Mahindra wishes you a very Happy World Family Day.
