With 12 standalone luxury cottages that blend into a private forest on the periphery of the national park, this resort is all things exotic. The guest area overlooks the large grassland where I spotted many monkeys and birds. The mud cottages are buil in a very local style of architecture. Another name for rejuvenation is definitely Mahua Kothi for me!

If you’d get a chance to stay in an ancient palace, would you? Well, I jumped at this opportunity and stayed at Hyderabad’s Taj Falaknuma Palace. Nestled 2000 feet above the city this palace used to belong to the Nizam, one of the richest men in the world at that time. This 18th-century palace overlooks the City of Pearls and boasts of romance and grandeur. I was taken aback by the horse-driven chariots, enchanting rooms and staircases here. And this made it worth the visit.
