Chocolates, flowers, fancy dinners, expensive gifts, sweet nothings, and late night goodbye kisses; what happens when you add a bit of travel to your idea of a perfect New Year date? It shoots up the list to become one of your most memorable ones.
Seal your love with an amazing backdrop of an exotic destination. Here are five incredible ideas for a truly unforgettable New Year date:
1. Inside a Palace
Step inside the palatial Oberoi Udaivilas
Put together the most romantic city in the world with one of the worlds best hotels, a fancy room with a private pool, personal butler service, and uninterrupted views of the loveliest little lake in the heart of India. And what would you get? A stay at the famous Oberoi Udaivilas Hotel in Udaipur! A New Year date here will be nothing less than a dream come true.
2. Under the Stars
Enjoy camel rides and camping in sand dunes
So how about spending a wintery night under the stars on the sand dunes of Jaisalmer? You can do it with an overnight jeep safari from Khuri right into the heart of the desert. Enjoy a camel ride to your camp, enjoy traditional performance of Ghoomar on the dunes, where your personal cook will prepare for you a scrumptious Rajasthani meal. Daal-bati-choorma on the desert, anyone?
3. On a Houseboat
The backwaters in Kerala are perfect for a romantic holiday
Sail through the palm-fringed backwaters of Kerala with your beloved and watch time come to a standstill. Discover hidden backwater lanes, watch a traditional Kathakali dance performance by the Vembanad Lake, shop for exotic spices and cardamoms in the local markets and discover love once again snuggled amid absolute serenity.
4. On a Beach
Spend a lazy afternoon by the seaside
Hailed as the best beach in Asia by the Time Magazine in 2004, one look at the turquoise waters of Radha Nagar Beach in Andaman Islands can sweep you off your feet. Lie on a hammock with your better half all day long, read your favourite book together, enjoy running along with the waves, and if the sun gets a bit too much to handle, snorkel your way into the water to uncover Havelock’s pristine underwater world. And of course, watching the sunset from Radha Nagar beach is an absolutely amazing experience.
5. In the Hills
Up for adventure? Try camping in tents!
Picture this: End of December, New Year’s Eve, a chill in the air, a fire and a camp to keep you cozy, and the light of your life by your side – a perfect setting for love, isnt it! So dont wait, get up on the hilly Himalayas, set a camp by a gurgling brook, light up a fire, keep the wine bottle ready, snuggle close to each other, and make a new year resolution to stay together for life.
So, what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and head out for the most romantic vacation of your lives!
