5-Star Hotel Guide


From the thriving markets of Mumbai to the imperial palaces of Rajasthan, India is a unique experience


5-star hotel guide to India

The Indian subcontinent is vast and alluring, offering an intoxicating blend of exotic palaces, spicy aromas, dramatic landscapes and the most obliging service imaginable.

We have visited and very carefully selected the finest 5-star luxury hotels on the subcontinent, from the most revered operators: Taj, Oberoi and Aman. Luxury Explorer's India collection includes monument hotels in Mumbai, Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur, chic Delhi addresses, a boutique hideaway retreat in the Himalayas and a one-of-a kind luxury resort, a stone's throw from the Taj Mahal.

Our contributing editors are in the process of selecting further properties in India: in Goa, Kerala and Rajasthan as well as wildlife safaris in India's national parks and game reserves.

For unique experiences we can organise bespoke trips, such as our 2019 expedition in search of the elusive snow leopard in the high valleys of the Trans-Himalayan region of Ladakh. We will shortly be publishing details of our exclusive 12 night itinerary, in early April 2019, led by our travel editor Sophie Marchant and an expert guide, but if you are interested in joining the party please contact our concierge, as there are only 10 places available.
