It was the month of December and I had already started planning for our mandatory Valentine’s Day getaway (you know these days all the good properties get sold out months in advance so better start early!). My first choice was Neemrana Fort Palace but Alas! It was already sold out (see I told ya, even December was not “early”). I geared up once again and started searching for another abode in the vicinity since we just had one day in hand. It was during those searches, I came across this property called “Baghaan Orchad Retreat”, nestled in a village called Kachrot in Garh Mukteshwar, just a 3 hours car drive from Delhi (perfect!), it just cliqued and I knew this is “it”!

 

What is “it” about?

What attracted me the most were their cottage style villas built inside a huge Mango farm with all the luxurious amenities that you may expect from a good 4 star hotel along with the magical touch of nature!

They offer two packages depending on a 1-night or a 2-nights’ stay. We went for the one night stay and it costed us around 10K (INR) inclusive of the all meals for two. When “The Day” came, we set our GPS and off we were to explore this luxurious Baghaan. Once you take a right from the main highway, the entire route is a typical UP village road (though no major bumps, still I won’t call it a smooth drive).

Tip Time: The GPS was showing us a narrow road but we decided not to follow it and instead went straight into a wider road thinking GPS will re-route. That was a huge mistake, the road lead us to middle of nowhere and it is impossible to describe in words one of the biggest ordeal we ever faced in our travelling experience so far. Nevertheless, we finally managed to get back on track and reached Baghaan. So my recommendation is to just follow the GPS strictly or ask the villagers when in doubt, they all are aware of this property. You will pass through beautiful Mustard and Mango farms on your way to the resort, which made us forget the ordeal and focus on the beauty scattered all around us!

 

And the fun begins!

The property is exactly as described in their e-brochure, we were greeted by a sweet scent of mango lingering in the Baghaan air along with the chirping of birds. The cottage was marvelous, though I bet once here you will hardly spend anytime inside the cottage ;). They have so many activities that will keep you busy all day long (additional charges for some). And for not so adventurous types like me, you may sit back and engulf the natural beauty while sipping your favorite drink in one of the many scenic spots inside the property.

We began our promenade in their huge farm with a tea, and decided to hit the pool. It was February, the water was cooolllllddd and just one dip later we both agreed that it was not a very sane idea so we stepped out and after a quick warm up decided to sit inside the game room built right next to the pool. 3 beers and 10 UNO rounds later, we both moved our asses and thought of playing some badminton in their huge lawn, after which we tried our hands on archery too but nahhh!, it was not my glass of beer ;).

Just like that, I realized it was already time to get ready for dinner. All dressed up,when we came out for dinner we were surprised to see that they had turned the lawn area into a beautiful open air set up with round tables and chairs and a great DJ playing the latest Bollywood beats. They also had a separate table allocated to each family/couple and ours had our name tag on it! We opted for our own private Bar-be-que and enjoyed roasting the meat along with some more booze and loads of baatein around the bonfire! By 11 PM everybody seemed high and wasted and we joined them and all of us just danced our night away to the tunes of all the “Chikni Chamelis” and “Sheila ki Jawani” songs that the DJ was playing which I guess helped in setting the crazy party mood and I tell you it was fun!

 

Useful tips

They offer activities like Zipline, Rappelling, Wall Climbing, Rope Course, Paint Ball War Game etc. at additional charges so do check them out here. Rent out a cycle (350 bucks) or take a good stroll around the village to have a sneak peek into the calm and simple lifestyle of the villagers or just enjoy the fresh air and the beauty of many farms encircling the resort area! Carry a mosquito repellent with you unless you love mosquito bites 😉

City Calling! And just like that even before we knew our Baghaan time was up “for now”  😉

Ciao 🙂

Our fun day in Pics

PS: I know the collages are weird but back then they were so “in”  😛
