Gir-Abode of Asiatic Lions
 

While the tiger has always basked in international glory, its cousin the Asiatic Lion has existed silently without much spotlight on it! Extinction stalks the Asiatic Lion leaving just around 400 of these regal predators in the wild; and the Gir National Park- the largest compact tract of dry deciduous forests in the semi-arid western part of India, is the last refuge of this endangered species. Gir is the proud abode of not just the Asiatic lions but also to the largest leopard population in the country, making it an ideal destination to view two of the five major big cats found in India, the others being the Bengal tiger, Snow Leopard and Clouded Leopard. While these big cats steal all the attention of the visitors to this park, the remarkable bird population is also something to look out for.  Read More....

Tree House Hideaway
  Luxe Hotel
 

Staying high up on a lush green tree surrounded by the forest all around is surely the best way to experience the wild, with the chorus performances of the jackals, an occasional growl of the tiger, the call of the peacocks, the singing of birds and the rustling of the leaves being the only sounds to break the silence! Experience this feeling of being completely immersed in nature at the Treehouse Hideaway in the jungles of Bandhavgarh. The five carefully situated Tree houses, each set it its own large tree, are spread in a 21 acre forest that merges into the jungles of this acclaimed tiger reserve.  Read More....

From the Vineyards
 

Admiring the hue, taking in the aroma and feeling the distinct taste- completes the wine experience! Enjoy this complete wine experience in the Indian regions, well out of the mainstream, led by Gagan Sharma-a wine professional, enthusiast, and certified mixologist. Wine is no stranger to Indian palates, as can be discerned from evidences dating back to the ancient times found at the sites of Harappan civilization demonstrating the culture of wine making and drinking among people of those times. Over time it saw many variations in its form and was eventually influenced by European travelers in the 18th & 19th centuries and especially the British under whose influence the vineyards were established. Today, in the 21st century, Wine in its sophisticated form is now being made again, after a long pause of several years. Even though young yet the Indian wine market is full of surprises for you to come and explore.

Lotus –The Divine Flower
 

Lotus-a symbol of purity, enlightenment and resurrection, is the national flower of India! An important symbol of Indian cultural heritage, it is considered to be of divine origin and is viewed as sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists. The idea of purity, enlightenment and self regeneration is symbolised by the life cycle of the sacred lotus plant because it begins its life humbly in the mud of ponds but soon blossoms as a beautiful flower rising above the surface of the water. The lotus blooms with the morning light and closes its petals when the sun goes down. So the sages accepted lotus as a unique symbol of unfolding the spiritual qualities of man with the advent of light. No other flower or symbol is as ever-present in the depictions of gods and sages, in the mystical verses of seer poets, and in the subtle biology of the yogi and shamans as the Lotus. Even the dome of the Taj Mahal resembles an upside-closed lotus resting on its petals, reflecting the significance of this flower on Indian culture and heritage.
