Attending sparkling parties, eating special New Year’s food, making resolutions for the New Year and observing the display of fireworks, is that all that you have planned for this time as well? How about hitting the road for an eventful vacation? Wake up in a special place, set out for unique activities, eat distinctive dishes or lounge all daylong
Here are five different places to kick-off 2016 :
1) Arouse in a tent with the enticing view of snow-covered highlands
Open your eyes with the sweet chirping of birds and the melodic sound of chilly winds playing with the canvas. Let the fresh rays of sunlight wish you a blissful new year while you lounge on the comfortable bed Wish your mates with a warm hug, start your day in a different way by sipping your special tea while walking barefooted on the moist grass, and get ready for a fun-filled 1st January 2016. Ski in the frosty slopes of Solang Valley or Sanasar, trek in the unchartered routes of Patnitop, or freely fly over the enthralling Kullu Valley.
2) Get up in a grandiose palace
Have you ever desired to be born as a Prince/Princess? Wake up inside a regal edifice and feel like a King/Queen. Open up your arms, blissfully yawn while gazing at the striking architecture of the room, and delightfully whisper “Happy New Year” in your companion’s ear. The splendid ambience and grand hospitality of places like V Resorts Lavitra, Fort Auwa, and Rajmahal Orchha will add charm to you holidaying experience.
3) Wake up amidst a desert in a mobile shelter
Feel the soft sand between your toes when you wake up or arise snuggled on a cosy bed amidst the colossal ‘Great Indian Desert’. Pitch your tent perfectly so that you can please your eyes with the beautiful view of the sky and sun, early in the morning. So, evade the virtual world, put your phone on flight mode, disconnect all the internet connections, and merrily celebrate 1st January only with your companions.
4) Awake amidst water
A slow motion voyage on a gliding watercraft will give you the wonderful opportunity to witness the adornment of the sun, rising from the clouds and the spectacle formed by the sunrays on water. Bask in the sundeck and quietly watch the Shankaracharya Hill and the Mughal-era Gardens or sip your morning tea in the balcony while gliding in Kerala’s traditional ‘Kettuvalloms’; amidst Lake Vembanad. Away from the buzzing horns and chaotic crowd, coolly rest in the secluded boat and gaily celebrate the New Year’s Day.
5) Open your eyes at the stunning spectacle of Beach
Still got a hangover? Wake up entranced after an electrifying party in Goa and start the day with exotic breakfast in the cabana, while looking at the arresting scene of the ‘morning blue sky’ and wavy water. Seek solace by lazing in the hammock, in the Guitar Island while reading your favourite book or by exploring the blue lagoon of Lakshadweep with a sedate snorkelling experience. Beaches of India have a lot more to offer, than just soothing massages and zipping water sports. So, commence the New Year with a Sandy Sojourn.
