From afar, India seems to take the form of a rare and precious stone hidden under layers of earth, whose extraction should only be attempted by a carefully curated process. To truly realize its many intricacies requires a more seasoned eye, one with decades of knowledge and an affinity for details, and one who knows where to look.

Oberoi Hotels and Resorts, the luxury hotel group with five-star properties all over India, brings its elite travelers a bespoke opportunity to experience the India most visitors miss. Promising a getaway with a passionate sense of time and place, each Oberoi Experience will feel hand-crafted in its detailed care and custom feel. From an authentic Shikara ride on the majestic Lake Pichola to a Maharaja-esqe elephant ride in Jaipur, each destination offers a sparkling glimpse into local culture, without any compromise to your luxury and comfort.

Oberoi’s India is a romantic one. Whether it be romancing the Himalayas with dinner in a gazebo or sipping champagne on a sunset cruise, each hotel offers couples packages that seek to reignite the senses through dramatic swallows of color and culture.

In true authentic grandeur, Oberoi Experiences offers couples the one-of-a-kind opportunity to renew marriage vows in a traditional Hindu ceremony. The Romance of Raiputana spa treatment will pamper and adorn the glowing bride with ceremonial dress before she is picked up in a horse-drawn carriage to be taken to the flower-adorned Shiva Temple amidst lush gardens within the resort. In the hotels 260-year-old temple, the Hindu priest will bless the couple before the festive day culminates with a romantic dinner at the pool overlooking the temple.

Don a sari and get your hips in the Bollywood groove for a visit to Kingdom of Dreams, an entertainment destination just ten minutes from Oberoi, Gurgoan to see a performance of Zangoora, a musical that brings the glamour and panache of Bollywood into a truly enchanting theatre production. If you think you’ve got the chops to be Bollywood’s next star, book a visit to the dance village of Nrityagram commissioned by the late Odissi dancer Protima Bedi.

Within the luxury and elegance of every Oberoi resort lies a haven of wellness, designed to pay homage to the temple of the body and mind. The exquisite, well-equipped Oberoi spas and fitness centers are designed to revive, restore and rejuvenate, while packages include private yoga and meditation in the Himalayan Mountains and the Noor-E-Taj spa treatment, which emulates the beauty rituals of the Mughal royal palace.
