Goa is home to some of the most popular beaches in the country, making it a quintessential holiday destination; lounging in the sand with a book and a refreshing drink is as tantalizing a prospect as spending an evening at the iconic Goan beach shacks. Explore the other facets of Goa’s exciting culture through two luxury offerings in India’s sunshine state. While the Goa Marriott Resort & Spa at Miramar Beach boasts of North Goa’s premier gaming destination in Casino Carnival, Le Meridien Goa, Calangute is the perfect home base for a culture trail that takes you through the Chapora and Aguada forts, and the famed Arpora Saturday Night Market. No matter what your fancy, Goa is a destination that promises a wide range of experiences, each more exciting than the last!
Just across India’s eastern border, enjoy a riverside staycation at Le Méridien Paro, Riverfront in Bhutan on your next holiday. Set along the lush, fertile banks of the river Paro, a hike along the course of the river is the perfect nature outing with your family. Add to that the delightful local Bhutanese cuisine and picture-perfect views of the Eastern Himalayas, and you have the makings of a luxurious getaway in the midst of nature.
A short drive from New Delhi, The Westin Sohna Resort & Spa in Gurgaon is the perfect spot to get away from the chaos of the capital. Nestled in the shadows of the mighty Aravallis, and flanked by dense forests, the resort features a distinct architectural style that blends tradition and modernity. Take a cool dip in the Damdama Lake, try your luck at fishing or enjoy a lakeside family picnic – simple pleasures never disappoint!
In the Land of the Kings, there are few places more jam packed with cultural heritage than the capital Jaipur. From your base at Le Méridien Jaipur Resort & Spa, explore architectural marvels like the Hawaa Mahal, Amer Fort and Jantar Mantar on a trip that takes you through the ages, spanning centuries of valour, sacrifice and grandeur. Do not forget to pause and sample the delectable local cuisine on the streets of Jaipur, and shop till you drop in the chaotic lanes and by-lanes of Bapu Bazaar. A heritage trail with an exciting flavour of the modern, Jaipur beckons for your next family getaway!
Along Sri Lanka’s southern coastline, Marriott International promises ultimate luxury at the Weligama Bay Marriott Resort & Spa, for your next staycation. Dig into a wide array of fresh seafood dishes, or even better, catch a glimpse of the region’s fishermen as they go about their daily business perched atop slender stilts, cutting a curious figure against the setting sun. For the heritage geek, the historic fort town of Galle is not too far away; its fortified walls contain within them secrets of an important chapter in Sri Lanka’s colonial history. Alternatively, take a day off to unwind at the Mirissa Beach, and try your hand at surfing!
