Places in India You Should Take Your Kids Post Pandemic
“Where should I travel to, next?”, “Will the children like it?” : It seems like ages since we’ve entertained these questions. However, after a year of COVID-19 induced lockdowns, travellers are looking towards the future with a sprinkling of optimism and a dollop of hope.
People are getting vaccinated every day, procuring what is known as a vaccine passport. Post-pandemic travel will soon be back on the agenda, with parents looking to give their little children a break from the four walls of their home.
In light of this, if you’re seeking kid-friendly destinations in India for an adventurous family holiday, look to Club Mahindra for the answers. We’ve put together a list of the most exotic places to whisk your children away to.
Most children grow up listening to fairy-tales. These tales centre around royal battles and grand feasts, flying carpets and magical deserts. At a time like this, imagination is the only thing that kids can turn to. But what if we told you about a place where imagination comes alive?
Number 1 on our list of places to visit in India, post pandemic, is Jaisalmer! Nestled right in the heart of the Thar Desert is Club Mahindra Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, a magnificent property. Built to look like a Rajasthani palace, it boasts of Jharokha style balconies overlooking a beautiful courtyard with lush, green lawns and an impressive swimming pool. Some of the top activities for kids to indulge in include camel rides in the dunes, bonfire dining under the stars, desert safaris, Ghoomar dance performances, and emboss painting workshops, each of which brings out the culture and mystique of Jaisalmer. What’s more, they will be treated to delicious sweets like rabri ghevar and gulab jamun!
Do your kids enjoy assembling animal puzzles, or flipping through wildlife picture books? Are they hooked onto jungle themed video games? If yes, a trip to our resort in Kanha is a wonderful idea. Kanha, in Madya Pradesh ranks high on our list of kid-friendly places to visit in India. And we can’t think of a more thrilling spot for young forest rangers to play and explore.
Make sure to embark on the jungle safari where your kids get the chance to spot the tiger, panther, jackal, wild bear and sloth in their natural habitat. The resort features other adventurous activities like low rope climbing and sumo wrestling. Creative tots may also sign up for cooking class, craft class and Bollywood theme night. We’d also recommend availing of the organic farm dining experience. Let your children observe the cooking process, from plucking the vegetables to whipping up a delicious meal.
Some of the best road trips in India begin in Karnataka and end in Tamil Nadu. For those of you who hail from Bengaluru, do consider driving down to the idyllic hill station of Ooty. The journey is picturesque, and the destination is simply enchanting.
Holiday with family at Club Mahindra Danish Villa, Ooty, Tamil Nadu, a refreshing escape from the city. Kids, most definitely, will adore this place. After all, which child doesn’t like to frolic in the grass, or cycle through bright, green foliage? From lakeside picnics to plantation visits, your child can engage with nature like never before. Plus, there are equally fun things to do within the resort, if you’re looking to be extra cautious. A dedicated children’s play area and indoor games room ensure round-the-clock entertainment. And for those who enjoy cooking as much as eating, Junior Chef is the way to go! When in Ooty, make sure your child samples hot medu vadas. It is an experience in itself.
The world is a fascinating place, especially in the eyes of a child. Journey to our charming, serene resort in Thekkady and you’ll be able to share in this child-like wonder. From boat rides along the crystal-clear lake, to safaris within the interiors of the forest, and tours through the aromatic spice plantations – this natural oasis welcomes kids with glee! Take your child to a 5,000-year-old Ayurveda Museum. Sign him/her up for an emboss painting workshop. Together, swim like guppies in the pool. Cheer for the Kalaripayattu and Kathakali performances. Feast on delicious barbequed meats and veggies. It’s hard to keep up with the variety of experiences curated for travelling families. As one of the safest places to visit in India, Thekkady will make you feel confident and secure of your child’s whereabouts. It’s time to create the most precious memories.
