The trip will include adventures such as camel rides, culture such as jeep tours in local villages, wellness with daily meditation and yoga, safety and connection with your fellow travelers, breathtaking wonders such as the Taj Mahal, and so much more!
The adventure will begin as you arrive in Delhi,”The Heart of India”, on September 22nd. Transportation will be provided to the Maidens Hotel in New Delhi. Rest will be encouraged on this day, with a light welcoming dinner and relaxing stretch and meditation session in the evening.
The next morning we will enjoy yoga and a delicious breakfast. Then sit back, relax, rest and enjoy the scenery as we travel by air conditioned coach to “The Pink City”, Jaipur.
Upon arrival we will check into our home for the next 5 nights, the lovely Samode Palace. This 475 year old palace is like stepping into a dream. You will appreciate the beautiful architecture, classic Indian motif, beautiful grounds, and 5 star luxury rooms with elegant furnishings, 4 poster beds, soft linens, immaculate bathrooms, and all comforts you need for a magical retreat experience.
While at Samode Palace you can indulge in all included classes, events, excursions and included adventures. If rest and relaxation suit you better, you are free to stay by the pool, enjoy a day at the spa, or any other activity that speaks to your soul.
During the days at Samode yoga classes and meditation will be offered at least once daily (perhaps more time and weather dependent). Breakfast and dinner in one of the Palace’s restaurants will be included daily.
Daily excursions will be included and planned. These include:
Hiking and exploring the area around the beautiful Palace

On September 28, enjoy one last yoga class and breakfast at Samode Palace before boarding an air conditioned coach, heading to Agra, home of the Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
Upon arrival we will check into the recently renovated Trident Agra Hotel. Built in local red stone, with beautiful appointed gardens, a pool, and 5 star accommodations. You may enjoy a restful evening with a wonderful dinner, gentle yoga, and meditation before settling into sleep to prepare for the next day’s adventure.
Morning yoga, meditation and breakfast will be provided at the hotel. We will then set out on a tour of the historical city of Agra, which dates back to the second century.
Finally, embarking on a very special tour of the iconic Taj Mahal. A masterpiece of construction, featuring ivory white marble, built over 22 years, starting in 1632. You will feel the magnificent splendor of “The Taj” as you walk along the reflecting pool, take in the semi precious stones that bejewel the mausoleum and visit the symmetrical Persian garden. Bask in the grandeur of it all with stunning photo opportunities and a chance to reach back in time to feel the love of a king for his queen.
On September 30th we will say goodbye to Agra with yoga, meditation and breakfast at The Trident and head back to The Maidens Hotel in Delhi, via air conditioned coach.
Once in Delhi, enjoy a short excursion of sightseeing or shopping before a last evening dinner and relaxing meditation.
