With a fairly long weekend just around the corner,  and one soon after that, it makes sense that most of us are planning a quick getaway. While some might be fine with just a typical run-of-the-mill kinda plan, others are looking to spend the weekend with a little more style and originality. What better way to start planning your getaway than to find an offbeat place to stay right?

Here are some cool boutique hotels that you’ve got to check out!

1. The Manor, New Delhi

Designed by a Japanese architect, this cute little hotel was established in the 1950s. Don’t be fooled by its size though. This hotel has a lot more character than many luxury hotels out there. With a bunch of fun activities to help you get rejuvenated, this is one place that is sure to appease all those people who have an affinity towards minimalism.

Price: Rs. 7,500 onwards, per night.

2. Casa Colvale, Goa

In North Goa, are two stylish villas with a breathtaking view. With an infinity pool and many other amazing activities including a barbecue, this place is definitely one you’ve got to visit. This is more of a RnR kinda place, so lay back and relax as you soak in the sun and get away from busy city life.

Price: Rs. 8,000 onwards, per night.

3. Chapslee House, Himachal Pradesh

With a glorious past, Chapslee is a treat that still remains undisturbed by modern-day amenities and millennial problems. Yes, that means no mobiles, internet or TV. It is the perfect representation of an age gone by and is picturesque beyond words. It serves as a good place to go to if you’re looking to disconnect for a while. #DigitalDetox

Price: Rs. 16,800 onwards, per night.

4. Old Harbor Hotel, Kerala

With interiors that are filled with local paintings, precious artifacts and cute little antiques, this 300-year-old colonial-style hotel is nothing short of breathtaking. So, whether you’re lazying by the pool or enjoying a cocktail under a tree, you’ve definitely going to have a good time.

Price: Rs. 8,500 onwards, per night.

5. Chhatra Sagar, Rajasthan

This place is truly unique in every sense. With a tent setup that overlooks an ancient reservoir, this hotel is the ultimate ‘glamping’ experience. With a lot of nature around you and even more cultural heritage to take in, it makes for the perfect getaway.

Price: Rs. 20,500 onwards, per night.

6. The Bird Cage, Uttarakhand

From the same people who brought us our favourite spot in Manali, Drifters Cafe comes another beauty of a place, The Birdcage. This cozy place is setup in the heart of Mukteshwar. Its location can only be described as a paradise and is every nature lovers dream. The quiet and peaceful ambiance of this place allows you to truly disconnect and recharge your senses, both of which are important in today’s time.

Price: Rs. 5,000 onwards, per night.

7. Reni Pani Jungle Lodge, Madhya Pradesh

This exquisite place is located close to Satpura National Park and Tiger Reserve. With 3 distinct structural designs that are spread over 30 acres of land, it makes for one amazing trip. Bird watching, safaris, and canoeing are just some of the activities available here. Staying here allows you to truly appreciate how great nature really is and also lets you explore it in all its glory. While this would make for a great solo trip, we recommend this one for family.

Price: Rs. 33,000 onwards, per night.

8. The Machan, Maharashtra

If you’re around Mumbai or Pune, and you don’t want to head out too far, we highly recommend this epic place. Located at Lonavala, The Machan is truly a beautiful escape. It’s hard to believe this place actually exists somewhere so close to the craziness of Mumbai. With zero connection to the outside world, living in these luxurious treehouses will leave you feeling refreshed, recharged, and ready to get back to the grind.

Price: Rs. 10,500 onwards, per night.

9. Coco Shambhala, Goa/Maharashtra

Coco Shambhala is definitely right on point when it comes to getaways. With unique villas in both Goa and Sindhudurg, they have everything you’re going to be looking for while planning a trip. Each of these villas are handcrafted to perfection and each of them has their own story. Every location is gorgeous and words truly don’t do it any justice. You just have to visit and see.

Price: Rs. 24,000 onwards, per night.
