Ever feel like you reeeeaally need a city break, but just don’t have the time, money or frankly, the will to coordinate? Well, then a staycation is probably what you need. For the uninitiated, a staycation is where you head off to relax, rejuvenate, or simply just chill and unwind – pretty much like a vacation, except you do it within your own city.
The best part about staycations? They offer almost as many options as a real vacation, when it comes to places to stay at. Here, we list a few resorts in major cities that are ideal for a quick break.
V Resorts Farmstay Delhi
This is a boutique three-bedroom cottage spread across a four-acre estate in the heart of Chattarpur, super-easily accessible to people from Delhi, Gurgaon and hey, even Noida! Thanks to its expansive lawns you also have the option of throwing a cool get-together here. Partying not your scene? Sit back and relax, but take a break to go check out the wide range of bonsais and other plants here.

V Resorts Imera Spa Bangalore
Located on the outskirts of Bangalore, 15 km aways from the main city in Sarjapur, a staycation at V Resorts Imera Spa means you don’t have to travel too far at all to feel like you’re out of the city, yet absolutely connected. With snooker, chess, table tennis, air hockey, foosball, cricket, darts, and tambola (pheww), we suggest this one be a quick break with the kids. But hey parents, don’t forget about the spa and the pool.

V Resorts Bohemian Masala Varkala
Sun, sand and surf on your mind? Hop in your car, and drive and hour and 20 minutes away from Trivandrum. The resort is located only 1.2 kms from the Varkala beach, (where you can go parasailing and scuba diving btw) and boasts of cottages that are classic examples of Keralite architecture. And because chairs are so yesterday, you can also make use of the hammock, which you can probably find strung between coconut trees on the property. Can anyone say #InstWeekendGoals?

V Resorts Lonavala
Okay, so this one’s not exactly in Pune, but at only 65 kms away (and 100 kms away from Mumbai), we still think it totally counts as a staycation! This four-bedroom bungalow is barely a kilometre from the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, and has a lawn, swimming pool, kitchen, living room, and a terrace offering views of the Sayhadri hills. I mean, what else could you possibly want? And hey, this is a pet-friendly property so you never need to leave your baby behind.

V Resorts Adhbhut Jaipur
At a 15-minute drive from Jaipur city, in Amer, is V Resorts Adhbhut Jaipur, which offers beautiful views of the Amer Fort, and more importantly, a place for you to escape city chaos. The chefs here are especially good (we recommend the Laal Maas and the Gatte ki Sabzi), so when you’re done exploring the stepwells behind the resort or exploring the Anokhi museum, make sure you catch a bite or five.
