As the Earth bursts into shades of green with the monsoon kicking in full swing, slow down and experience rains first-hand for a long weekend is around the corner and it would be a shame to not put it to good use. Witness places where Peacocks dance in open meadows in rain or enjoy quietude with a book in a snuggly corner of your room while it pours or experience the discrete charm of rain by exploring the scenic walking trails on foot – in these 5 destinations, the options for rejuvenation are endless.


  1. Chikmagalur, Karnataka

Famed for its captivating beauty, this hill station offers picturesque views in the monsoon which would certainly transport you to another realm. As the monsoon clothes the entire landscape of the Western Ghats, the numerous waterfalls in the region such as Jhari Falls, Hebe Falls become a sight to behold, the Mullayanagari peak offers beautiful hiking trails, and guided tours in coffee plantations become far more exciting. So, what are you waiting for? Club Mahindra’s partner hotel Gateway Chikmagalur offers travelers a great opportunity to stay in the middle of a million shades of green blended with great hospitality to have a soulful holiday experience.


  1. Puri, Odisha

During the monsoon, the charm of this beautiful city is further magnified. Get ready to be greeted by the delightful aroma of Eucalyptus trees that wafts on the unpopular Balighai beach, witness the playful Irrawaddy dolphins in their natural habitat in Chilika Lake, and visit Raghurajpur village to uncover the hidden artist in you with the Chitrakar community who practice the traditional art of pattachitra for a living. If you are looking for a nice hotel to stay in, check out Club Mahindra’s partner hotel Pramod Convention & Beach Resort as they are one of the best in town!


  1. Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh

As the monsoon approaches, watch the rain-soaked hills shine green in splendor. Blessed with lush greenery, The Jain Rock Shrines at Gopachal Parvat, Amma Maharaj ki Chattri, and the tomb of Tansen re-create the nostalgia of the city’s golden period. Tigra Dam gets revived in the monsoon and is the place to be if you are looking for solace far from the city. And if you still haven’t figured out a hotel, then, Club Mahindra’s partner hotel Taj Usha Kiran Palace is definitely a great choice!


  1. Mumbai, Maharashtra

A lot of films such as Wake Up Sid and many others celebrate the spirit of monsoon in Mumbai and why shouldn’t they capture it? After all, the rainy season in the city is worth experiencing. Though it doesn’t fail to mesmerize all through the year, Marine Drive becomes a different character in rain, enjoy a piping hot cup of cutting tea and just bask in the beauty of the Arabian Sea as rain drops make infinite ripples on its surface, take a ferry ride around the Gateway of India and immerse yourself in the majestic beauty of the monument as it drizzles, enjoy a delectable spread on a rooftop café and hear the whispers of the rain, and if you want to add value to your trip, register yourself for a beach cleanup and make a positive change. After a fulfilling day, retire for the night at our partner hotel President IHCL SeleQtions for a delightful stay…


  1. Amritsar, Punjab

Enveloped in mysticism, Amritsar is a place with a plethora of blessings. Take a parikrama around the famous Golden Temple while the drops of rain kiss your cheeks and conclude with the divine halwa which would warm you up from inside out. Relive the story of the largest migration in human history through the partition museum, and taste the choicest delicacies of Punjabi food which taste better in great weather. And when looking for a nice hotel to stay in, you can always trust Taj Swarna, another Club Mahindra partner hotel.
