We wish we were on a hiking trail, somewhere deeeep in the mountains. Or lounging by the sea, falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing.
Sometimes, we feel like we really need a break and go on a vacation, but the plan just doesn’t seem to work out. Sometimes friends bail, sometimes there are budget constraints, and sometimes, our leave request doesn’t go through.
So what’s a traveller got to do? Not travel? No, we do not even ENTERTAIN such ridiculous possibilities. You CAN absolutely still vacation. But how?
Well, what about heading to a luxury hotel near your own city for the weekend? Think snoozing by the pool, relaxing spas, delectable food, comfy rooms and top-notch hospitality…and all within the budget of a small-trip. That’s a vacation, alright!
So if you’re onboard with our great idea, check (and book) these 5 premium Indian hotels where you can stay under 5K:
