This itinerary uses the very best hotels and we can alter the itinerary if you want to reduce the budget. A good alternative for Amanbagh is Samode Palace just north of Jaipur.
Rajasthan is sometimes unfairly looked over as a wonderful honeymoon destination, with many feeling there is too much hustle and bustle and chaos for it to be truly suitable. We completely disagree, and with a carefully constructed itinerary, you only have two nights in a city (one in Mumbai and another you have a room overlooking the Taj Mahal, so that doesn’t really count). You get to delve into the countryside, into the off-the-beaten track rural heartlands where India just becomes so utterly beautiful. Begin by flying to Bombay (now called Mumbai), and staying for a night. We suggest heading to a roof-top bar for cocktails as the sunsets and then trying out one of the city’s amazing restaurants. Stay for the night at the top hotel, the Taj Mahal. Fly up to Udaipur, Rajasthan’s most picturesque city and stay here for three days, perfect just to sit back and relax after the wedding. You’ll stay overlooking the lake at The Oberoi Udaivilas, often voted as one of the best hotels in Asia and a superb place to begin the honeymoon in style. Fly to Jaipur and head into the surrounding countryside for two nights at Amanbagh, another exceptional hotel. They can even set up dinner in an old temple that can be coated in candles as you sit down to a gourmet al fresco dinner. Wander through the villages and farmland, seeing a timeless India that modern life simply hasn’t reached. Drop down to Ranthambore National Park for two days of safari. The park is famous for its excellent tiger sightings and you’ll stay at a luxury tented camp. Hop on the train to Agra (a little honeymoon adventure in itself) and stay for a night. Your room will have a balcony overlooking the Taj Mahal, built by Shah Jahan for his wife Mumtaz in the 17th century. See the Taj at sunrise, before driving directly to Delhi Airport (no need to see the city on a honeymoon) and flying the relatively short distance to Muscat where you can spend three nights or longer in the luxury Chedi Hotel on the beach.
