  1. The Wildflower Hall, Shimla

Many travellers have described Wildflower Hall Shimla as a place of “Fairytale” and I certainly agree with that. Shimla in itself is a couple gateway and in India there aren’t many places like these. So keeping this thought in mind The Wildflower Hall, Shimla team opened this resort to target love birds.

Today The Wildflower Hall, Shimla is one of the most breathtaking destination for married couples who are looking for honeymoon resorts. The suitation is the plus point for the resort team as they are situated in lush green mountain valley filled with beautiful flowers. Moreover this is a heritage resort so it brings a taste of story tale in it. In my view this is an amazing places and you must visit it.

This is a 70 year old lodge which was once used a hunting holiday for Rajasthan Royalty. Today this lodge comes under the famous Taj Hotels Group which have turned this Hunting lodge into a couple retreat.

The location is the plus point for this place as its just 20 mins from National park and the service here is a mixture of Taj groupl and royal Rajasthan culture, I will give 5 stars to this amazing lodge.

Top 3 destinations to book hotels in New Delhi

New Delhi is the capital of India which is the 2nd most populated country in India. With this India is also a big market for global business and corporates. So to help all those business travellers who visit delhi and are looking for hotel accommodation in Delhi I have a small list for you.

1. Greater Kailash

Greater kailash

Greater Kaialash is in South delhi and there are many cheap hotels in greater kailash which one can book. One can get a room in GK part 2 for as low as INR 2000 which included complimentary breakfast and parking. My suggestion will be to book a hotel in GK which even offer complimentary wi-fi connection.

2. Karol Bagh

Karol bagh

After New Delhi histed Asian games in 80’s Karol bagh became a favourite destination to open a hotel and today this part of New Delhi has more than 1000 hotels and one can book a hotel in Karol bagh for as low as INR 1000 but don’t expect complimentary parking in this part of the city.

3. Paharganj


This is one of the oldest destination in Delhi famous for budget and cheap hotels. One can book a domitery for as low as INR 400 and the best part of Paharganj hotels in that they are the closest ones to Railway station. But if you are looking for quality hotels in Delhi than don’t even bother to visit Paharganj.

Finally I will say that prefer Greater Kailash as its in South Delhi and has open roads, luxury accommodation in budget and its not too far from railway station and airport.
