Distinctive and unduplicated, generally more atmospheric than luxurious, embodying much of the colour, spirit and tradition of the destinations where they are located – our handpicked selection of very special hotels offer you an experience more deeply immersed in a sense of place, adding to the fascination of the journey itself. They include heritage homes in urban centres, colonial bungalows in tea plantations, rural retreats, refurbished forts, guesthouses with an edgy chic and much more.
India has a large and varied collection of hotels, big and small, grand and intimate, standard and bespoke. The hospitality in Indian hotels is unmatched as it springs from an inherent nature to serve guests by our mantra “Athiti Devo Bhava” which means “Guests have their place with the Gods”. We have put together a few intimate and bespoke hotels that are very unique and a gem in their region – they will certainly take good care of you.
Should you wish to stay in any of these, we would be delighted to assist you.
