Itinerary Description:

Begin in Delhi and tour the beautiful mix of old and new in India's capital city. Retreat to the The Lodhi, a designer hotel and urban resort sheltered from the bustle of the metropolis that combines traditional architecture and decor with an array of modern amenities. Enjoy the sparkling swimming pool and services of the spa before continuing to India's Great Thar Desert and the blissful isolation of The Serai Desert Camp. From the exquisite tented confines of camp, set out for desert adventures and explorations of the Golden Fort and havelis used by merchants on medieval trade routes.

Jodhpur is your next destination. RAAS Hotel is a city within a city, composed of historic buildings and newer structures hidden behind ancient walls, all surrounding a picturesque garden. Tour the Blue City and Mehrangarh Fort, and head into the desert to visit a Bishnoi village. This intriguing culture is famous for their efforts to protect and live harmoniously with all forms of nature.

The famous palaces of Udaipur are next on the list. Enjoy a tour of some of the finest structures in India and a leisurely boat ride on Lake Pichola in the shadow of the palaces. Stay in Devi Garh, a fort palace turned luxury hotel with suites decked in local marble and semi-precious stones. Jaipur, the "Pink City" follows on your journey, with the amazing private villas of the Tree Of Life Resort welcoming you to the city. Plunge pools, private courtyards, and an outdoor spa pavilion are among the resplendent amenities found at the resort. See the Amber Fort, visit colorful local markets, and soak in all the fascinating culture to be found in the city.

Agra and the Taj Mahal beckon, and the Oberoi Hotel Amarvilas gives you a beautiful view of the monument's domed roof beyond. Go on an exclusive sunrise tour of the Taj, long before throngs of tourists descend on its grounds, and visit Agra Fort and its lavish rooms within. End your journey back in Delhi, sheltered in the suburb of Gurgaon at the Oberoi Hotel Gurgaon.
