HolidayIQ Traveller Ajit Sodhi shares, “The ambience of Wildflower lounge with an antique fireplace and old but beautiful upholstered furniture and the hotel staff in typically Himachali dress complete with a cap was like some dream setting. Our rooms were equally inviting, with rose petals strewn on stark white sheets and a lovely view of the garden below; it brought an upsurge of happiness, setting the mood for a lovely holiday,”

HolidayIQ Traveller Sunitha U. shares, “It was an awesome experience at ITC Mughal Agra. The hotel's architecture is a combination of red bricks on the outside and white marble on the inside. The staff is friendly and courteous, not going overboard. The food is amazing! The view from the Taj view point on top of the hotel was nice - The Taj Mahal rising up from the city!”

HolidayIQ Traveller Priya Pathiyan shares, "I was recently invited to visit The Corner Courtyard and I found myself feeling sad that this relatively new boutique hotel didn't exist on my last visit! Created from a crumbling 110-year-old bungalow by the owner Megha Agarwal, it's now a gorgeous property that gives you a taste of colonial Calcutta but also transports you to Europe with its eclectic decor and excellent menu. Each of its seven rooms is uniquely decorated with great attention to design and detail. The design of the common areas and the restaurant spaces is full of whimsy and creativity that will whisk you away into a world of wonderment."

We took the latter since they were closer to the beach and less expensive. The staff were very helpful and our vacation very memorable. They have a true infinity pool and the facilities are fabulous!”
