The weekend just goes by so fast, isn’t it?
It is Friday night and you relieve yourself from all the stress, but oh! You wake up and it is Monday morning. How often does this happen? We certainly need to award ourselves a vacation, don’t you think? Yes we know you have been planning a Manali trip for a long long time or perhaps you have been watching yourself in the streets of Jaipur probably riding on a camel since ages. The wait is just too long.
Let us make a change in this never ending cycle. You do not need a long weekend for this, a fine regular weekend would do just fine. Mind freshening, de-stressing, fun, not as far as Jaipur or Manali and also not so much in the city. A road trip plus a place to relax, freshen up and an opportunity to began your Monday afresh.
Tikli Bottom is a haveli turned guest house, amidst the greens of Aravalis. The place has a sparkling swimming pool in the centre, huge and scenic lawns and most importantly, it is cut off from the city. They have only four rooms and the owners, Martin and Annie Howard, live on the property too.
Why Not To Miss
Take a dive into the pool and submerge yourself in the beauty of Aravalis. Want to sleep under the stars? Just tell them and they will arrange a charpai for you! Only about an hour from Gurgaon, we recommend that you mark this place for a peaceful weekend getaway.
It Has More To Offer
The food served is entirely organic, grown in the property and cooked fresh. Personal quarters have dressing rooms and tubs. If you are into bird watching and photography, dusk and dawn are the best times for it. To get the full experience, you can opt for rejuvenating massages and reflexology sessions. They cost a bit more but it is all worth it!
Keep In Mind
The guest house is closed from 20th April to 1st July. It is mostly booked in advance, so make sure you have booked before hand. Rooms start at INR 16,000; Day packages including use of pool at INR 3,500, lunch starts at INR 1,300. The very best time to come is when you are hungry and looking for rustic, scenic escape.
