The nearest getaway from Delhi to recharge yourself

by - 5/15/2018

Life is a book and those who don't travel have seen just the cover. Well I totally follow this saying. One needs to travel to know about the world, to unplug from one's mundane routine and to discover the world. People can have either of the above reasons for travel or all of the above. I (read my family) belong to the latter. We usually fly out of the country once a year and take short breaks throughout. These quick getaways make us feel alive all over again.

It's been 6 months to our trip to Australia. After that we had a mini vacation in Agra. Then there was a long silence. We were drowned in work and I was feeling uninspired, almost soulfully dead. It was high time that we took a break. So we decided to explore one of the nearest places to Delhi... Manesar.
Manesar is a fast growing town in the state of Haryana. Situated about 20kms from Gurugram, it's kind of a satellite township. It's studded with housing complexes with high rise buildings and industries. However nestled in its centre is Heritage Village which is an oasis of luxury.
I had heard a lot about Heritage Village before and I was thrilled when the husband surprised me with this getaway. It was the perfect break that I needed to get back to life.
Everything in Heritage Village is tradition oriented. I mean the buildings are built in typical Rajputana style. The staff is dressed traditionally and the guests are welcomed with 'tika' as they enter. The rooms are called clusters and suites 'darbar'. The halls are called Sabha and so on. It is such a welcome change from our daily westernised lifestyle.
There is a lovely swimming pool just behind the reception that overlooks a huge garden. The garden is for special functions. Like there was a wedding when we were there. There are lifesize Rajput statues at every corner. The furniture, the artefacts etc all are heritage style. I am totally reacharged by this trip! 
Why I recommend this place?

  • Room rates can be booked at as low as 5000INR per night which is very decent.
  • Room has complimentary drinking water, tea/coffee and toiletries. Brush and Shaving kit can be availed on request.
  • There is no compulsion to have meals here unlike the Neemrana Fort Palace. The city of Manesar is just 10 minutes ride away. You can easily have your meals at any restaurant out there. It will save you a lot of money.
  • Activities like cricket, volleyball, paintball can be played but their rates are on the higher side. However there is a park with swings and lots of other rides where your kids can enjoy and is complimentary.
  • With such a variety of things to do in the property, it's a great place to recharge yourself and your family.

Coming to the outfit, most pieces are from my favourite shopping website I really love this striped shirt. The broad belt I had been eyeing for years now and these wedges are apt for a resort getaway!
