India hosts a truly diverse range of accommodation – from 5-star hotels to former forts and palaces, from havelis to travelling camps and from wilderness lodges to local homestays.
In the north, the princely kingdoms of Rajputana, in present-day Rajasthan, were once the domains of India’s most lavish ruling dynasties. In breathtakingly beautiful settings, they created forts and palaces of extraordinary scale and exquisite design. Today, many of these wonderful architectural treasures have been converted into some of the world’s most spectacular boutique hotels and several remain homes to the royal family, who offer guests exceptional levels of hospitality. A highlight of any visit to India, and a special way to experience the country’s heritage, is to stay in one of these majestic hotels.
Cox & Kings works with the reputable Taj Hotel and Oberoi chains, including the Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur, the iconic Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai, and the Oberoi Amarvilas overlooking the Taj Mahal.
Mobile desert camps provide a private and romantic experience, from which you can head out on a camel safari to explore local villages. Meanwhile, Ultimate Travelling Camp in the India Himalaya provide an unrivalled experience amid incredible surroundings.
For an up close and personal wilderness experience, stay in a jungle lodge, many which include viewing platforms, infinity pools and opportunities to sleep under the stars.
In the south, stay in authentic homestays with comfortable rooms, and be taken care of by friendly hosts. Escape to rural tropical paradise in hotels nestled within spice, tea or rubber plantations, or amid coconut groves and rice paddies.
Finally, experience traditional colonial style cottages, heritage farmhouses or truly luxurious beach resorts.
