The motherland of mythology, unparalleled topography and confluence of innumerable cultures: India has many historical and natural troves that have always attracted visitors from near and far.
But the ever-growing footfalls of the gadabouts has not only increased the carbon footprint but has also corrupted the serenity of these heavenly tourist attractions. Therefore there are some names in the Indian hospitality sector that are actively promoting “green-tourism”, where the guests can not only enjoy a recharging vacation but can also have an insightful excursion into the lives of the native population. The biggest perk is that all this can be accomplished without damaging the ecological tranquility of these getaways.
ALILA FORT BHISHANGARH
Alila! It is a Sanskrit word for surprise and they’re amazing the visitors with their unique stand on eco-tourism.
Alila Fort Bhishangarh is the revamped avatar of a 230 years old spectacular Indian citadel. The fortress greets visitors with a breathtaking 360-degree view of the Aravali range and it is the only warrior fort that has been transformed into an Eco-resort. The resort has functions on an in-house water recycling system and works on solar power to a major extent. The visitors are encouraged to take strolls across the villages and are served organically grown food.
Dune Wellness group
Dune wellness group of eco-luxury resorts and spas not only offer a retreat from the common humdrum of life but help you to connect with nature without sickening the natural surroundings. The group has restored many old buildings, some of them are more than two centuries old and a stay there feels like traveling back in time.
You can either visit a British Raj mansion or take a peek into an amalgamation of Franco-Tamilian architecture or rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul at an Ecovillage and Spa! A vacation with Dune wellness group is not just a vacation but an opportunity to adore the ancient architecture, savor an organic cuisine, chance to appreciate brilliant native artists, and above all healing yourself via meditation, Ayurveda and other natural therapies.
Alila Diwa Goa
The resort stands tall against a verdant backdrop of rich paddy fields. The resort flaunts an architecture which is a blend of contemporary design and traditional Goan planning to pamper the guests with the best of both worlds.
The resort entertains the guests in an ecological setting and has a list of activities like feeding the eagles, baking with the local bakers, and much more which helps the guests to understand the native culture and helps them connect with nature as well. Apart from that, the resort is a great venue for weddings and business events too.
