This week we want to help you beat the heat by indulging in these lust-worthy pools across India so grab your towel and swimsuit, all you need is a getaway to one of these amazing retreats and you’re summer ready!
The Kurumba Village Resort is a rare aromatic arena and the invigoratingly clean air here has to be breathed to be believed! This retreat has been built artfully in a 10-acre former spice plantation, sculpted into a hill and not a single tree has been harmed in the process. Pluck home-grown fruits and vegetables which the chef will then use to conduct a hands-on tribal cooking class followed by treks to the hills and lunches served atop the mountain. For those looking to unwind, there are a series of authentic therapies as well. It’s off-trail, unspoilt, luxurious and in sync with nature where your days seem to slip away like birds in flight.
An escape to this spectacular retreat by the mountains after a wildly hectic week is heavenly. The property offers 22 private, comfortable and independent cottages overlooking the River Ganges. Indulge in activities like river rafting, kayaking and mountain biking in the Himalayas or perhaps a spot of yoga by the banks of the Ganges will help you relax and recharge.Definitely try the Garhwali cuisine served at the White Water Café which has both an indoor and outdoor seating area – we bet you will choose the outdoors for those gorgeously stunning views of the valley.
