Become a beach-baby in Goa, also known as the party capital of India has a completely different side to it. Couples who want a bit of privacy, away from the usual city chaos, there are many beaches in Goa that are relatively empty and clean. Beaches are perfect if you want to have a late-evening time with your partner alongside the waves gushing and hitting the shore. The lush hills and scooter rides through the narrow zigzag roads are fun too!

If you wish to spend some time with your partner in a royal way, I suggest you to extend your budget and find yourself an accommodation at The Raj Leela palace that prides in being one of the finest heritage hotels in the world. Late-evening date night, star gazing, chilled winds, and the landscape of the widespread desert – it’s all worth the time! The best time to visit Jaipur is during the peak winter season.
