From the moment our private chauffeur picks you and your friends up at home for your limousine transfer to the airport, you’ll know you are in for something special.
We’ll fly you in Club World (or by private jet if you prefer) directly to Hyderabad for a spectacular arrival by horse-drawn carriage at the Falaknuma Palace, once the residence of the Nizam of Hyderabad, and one of India’s most glorious palace hotels. You’ll be greeted by a shower of rose petals as you climb the Grand Staircase to settle into your suite – home for the next four nights as you explore the City of Pearls.
Your time in Hyderabad is given over to …
Having nourished your body, it’s time to nurture your mind as we fly you down by private jet to Hampi. Set on the banks of the Tungabhadra River and built among gigantic granite boulders, Hampi is one of India’s most bewitchingly beautiful temple complexes. Here we have arranged for one of India’s leading yoga masters to meet and guide you on a personalised yoga programme over the next four days set among the fourteenth-century Vijayanagar temples and along the river. You will also have an incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of Indian classical dance with private lessons from a virtuoso. Your home in Hampi is a suite at the stunning Kamalapura Palace, whose stone-paved boulevards, arched hallways and regal chambers evoke the glories of another age.
So that you are fully replenished before your return, we’d suggest slowing down with some soul time in Goa, staying in a dreamy shabby-chic private villa at Ahilya by the Sea. Your yoga master, by now a friend, will accompany you and help you develop your yoga practice by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. A typical day might see you wake up for chakra-balancing postures and a few gentle laps in the infinity pool before breakfast, then perhaps explore the quiet nearby country temples and villages by bicycle. After a delicious and healthy al fresco lunch beneath the coconut palms, afternoons are free to snooze, chat or bliss out with an ayurvedic massage in the treehouse spa. A sunset nidra meditation will complete your feeling of serenity. As you settle into the slow rhythms of Goa, you’ll rediscover a stillness that is so often hard to find in the bustle of modern life.
