5 amazing and lesser known infinity pools in India

  1. Villa Urvin Khan, Chikmagalur

Stunningly surreal. It’s what a dream mountain home is made of. Architecturally speaking, think antiques, open bathrooms, a gorgeous infinity pool, poster beds.FB_IMG_1496932524224FB_IMG_1496932537198Oh yes and how can I forget the super huge projector screen. So you can grab your beer by the pool and watch a movie. Goodness! I’m in love with this place for eternity.

Price: Rs.6000/person per night inclusive of mealsIMG_20170608_200044.png

A place that combines modern minimalism. Perched atop a hill in arpora, the northern part of Goa, Aranya is a villa retreat that typically houses families on a longer stay.

With just 2 days to myself, the solo traveller in me ofcourse pestered them to let me grab a room for my short stay. And boy! I felt like this was all I needed from life.

Price: Rs.3500 for 2 people/night (2015)

This one is pretty much a gem that not too many know about. A gorgeous view from the top of a mountain. All you see below is a valley and the vast forest in front. Serves a decent buffet and is worth a visit.

Price: Rs. 4700-5000 for 2 inclusive of breakfast and lunch

  1. Kurumba Village Resort, Coonoor

Rs. 10,000 for 2/night. All meals inclusive.

  1. KTDC Waterscapes, Kumarakom


Managed by the Kerala Tourism Development Authority, this one is a surprise. With an infinity pool overlooking the lake, rooms clean and well-maintained and a good, hefty breakfast, it is complete value for what you pay.
