Weddings in Delhi, Goa and Rajasthan – Where to Extend Your Stays

5 Mins read

The year-end, the last month of the year, the last hurrah, December is literally synonymous with celebrations. Not only does it call for year-end bonuses, Christmas and New Year Eve celebrations, but also loads of weddings! And by that we mean, loads. The winters serve as the perfect backdrop for a lavish Jaipur destination wedding, an enthusiastic Delhi wedding or even a soothing oceanfront wedding in Goa. 

And weddings are seldom a one-day event. No, they involve a host of ceremonies and cocktail evenings! With weddings becoming a weekend to a five-day affair, it is not surprising that the majority of wedding-goers extend this elaborate soiree to a 2-week long vacation, complete with an extensive itinerary, ideal for an indulgent touristy holiday. 

Well, if you are attending a destination wedding anytime soon, which we are sure you are, we would suggest certainly extending your stay and savour a getaway unlike any other! Whilst our luxury villas make for lavish stays, our following, albeit crisp, guides will keep you occupied during your vacation. 

Take a look for yourself.

Goa 

Goa’s swoon-worthy landscapes coupled with the serene blue waters and pristine beaches paint quite a dreamy wedding picture. But holidays here prove to be unforgettable!

Places to visit in Goa

Harvelem Waterfalls

Towering at a height of 70 metres, Harvelem Waterfall deafeningly gushes down, leaving behind an admirable landscape. The fall generally dries up during the summers, and is best experienced during the monsoons, however, you shouldn’t underestimate the raw beauty! 

Its vicinity boasts other attractions as well. The Rudreshwar Temple and Harvelem Caves are a must-visit here as well. You wouldn’t have to worry about the accessibility of the falls as it is easily reachable by road. 

Calangute Beach

Undoubtedly one of the most touristy experiences to indulge in, it is most definitely worth the hype. One of the longest beaches in Goa, which stretches all the way from Candolim to Baga. One of the hotspots of Goa, the typical beach shacks and the range of watersports are absolutely unmissable.

Chapora Fort

Please make way for the Dil Chahta Hai fort! A photo-op is a must here. Overlooking the surrounding serene sea and Chapora River. You can visit this fort from 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM. The sunsets are absolutely stunning, making it definitely worth a visit.

Fountainhas

The Latin Quarters of Panjim feature vibrant bylanes, cosy cafes serving delectable meals and colourful walls. The architecture will leave you absolutely in awe. The history seeps through the walls of these lanes, whilst the air is engulfed in the fresh mist of freshly baked goods. If that doesn’t make you instantly want to add it to your itinerary, I don’t what will!
