The Winds Desert Camp offers 20 luxury tents featuring simple furniture along with all the modern fixtures you’ll need. They organize camel safaris, jeep safaria and guided excursions if you wish to explore different sites in and around Jaisalmer. 

Rohitabja Halder: Stay at Winds Desert Camp was amazing from every point of view. Service was excellent, same goes for the desert safari and camel ride. We enjoyed a lot being in sand dunes and capturing our memory of sunset in a desert. Then comes the famous Rajasthani cultural program. Again no word can express my feeling properly. We ended our eventful day with a candlelight dinner.”

2. Jungle Retreat Wayanad, Wayanad

The Jungle Retreat Wayanad is an ideal escape for wildlife and nature lovers. You can see animals from your balcony in their natural habitat. The farm is in close proximity to the Nagarhole and Tholpetty sanctuaries, offering excellent options for trekking, birding and spending a few days rejuvenating.

Zohan Malik from Bangalore talks his adventurous stay at Jungle Retreat Wayanad. He says “We were treated as part of the family, excellent service that we had never experienced before ever. Regarding the wildlife sighting, we were unlucky on the first day as we did not see any animals except spotted deer in the famed meadows of jungle retreat wayanad. A tigress had made a kill nearby and during the trek we actually went and saw the kill. It was spotted deer, that too inside their farm.

3. Dhanagiri Homestay, Vythiri

Dhanagiri Homestay is a simple but cosy property set within a 30-acre coffee plantation that offers just as much tranquillity but in not-so-wild surrounds. The homestays has cottages and bungalows with all the modern amenities like free WiFi and cable TV.

Harshad from Cochin chats about his stay at Dhanagiri Homestay. He says: “The surrounding environs of the hill are ideal for gentle trekking and the balcony of the resorts offer a panoramic view of the lush green hills. The bungalow appears to be a manifestation of the old 'Tharavadu' style architecture while, the resorts are elegantly simple. The rooms and bathrooms were extremely clean with all the facilities attached. Our dining experience was customised with variety of food combinations.”

Fulfil your dreams of floating on water by staying at the Moon Valley Houseboat in Srinagar. Flanked by the snow-capped mountains from all sides, this three room houseboat offers stunning views of placid waters and the surrounding snow-covered peaks.

Neha Pal: This houseboat is located on Dal lake which is beautiful. The interior of houseboat is very impressive with walnut and other types of wooden furniture. Houseboat is well maintained and is clean with modern amenities. Our houseboat caretaker Mr Bilal was hardworking and efficient. Food was good and a loving peaceful evening with a beautiful view of lake and mountains. The whole boat was crafted with hand made designs in wood. It feels like being in a palace.

Jushna Khanna from Delhi talks about his stay at Tree Hill Cottage. He says: “The treetop house cottage was a unique experience as it was on a top of the tree in an orchard farm house. The location was away from Manali but the place was quiet. It was run by a family who were very nice. The room had an amazing view and the cottage is located in a serene & peaceful area. Thoroughly loved the stay.”
