Have a winter holiday in India on your next private jet charter…
From the snow-capped mountains of Kashmir to the desert cities of Rajasthan, the bustling metropolises of Mumbai and Delhi to the lush beaches of seaside Goa, the vast expanse of India has a myriad of different travel opportunities.
Mumbai – known as the Maximum City for its fast-paced, in-your-face lifestyle – is the country’s second largest conurbation, boasting a thriving nightlife, plenty of colourful attractions and the film-making hub of Bollywood.
When your private jet charter lands at Mumbai Airport, it’s a 30km drive to the city centre.
The iconic and elegant Oberoi Hotel provides flawless service from personal butlers, a fabulous spa and even a luxury retail arcade.
Enjoy views over the sweeping Mumbai skyline and the Arabian sea while you have a drink at the pool bar, or choose a bottle from the onsite Italian restaurant’s wine library.
When you want to leave the hotel to explore, Mumbai boasts three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station, the rock-hewn Elephanta Caves and the Victorian and Art Deco Ensemble museum.
Jaisalmer, the Golden City of the Thar Desert in Rajasthan, is perched on a ridge, rising like a mirage from the sand.
Once your private charter lands at the airport, you’re just 13 kilometres away from the golden sandstone city walls.
The luxurious Suryagarh hotel boasts grand Rajasthani architecture, peaceful courtyards and traditional handcrafted furnishings. The hotel can organise trips into the desert, a camel safari and once-in-a-lifetime dining experiences under the stars.
The city has its own particular style of food, and the streets are lined with restaurants selling Bengali, Tibetan and even Italian cuisine.
Try the Trio restaurant which serves authentic Rajasthani cuisine such as spicy dal tadka or chickpea pickle from a tent with people-watching views of the Old Bazaar.
For a lush, tropical stay, then Goa is the perfect mix of beautiful white beaches and nightlife.
The chic Hyatt Place is an oasis of luxury near the tourist hotspot restaurants, bars and clubs of Candolim, Northern Goa – and just 36 kilometres from Dabolim International Airport, where your private charter flight will land.
The hotel is right next to the beach and boasts zorbing, paintballing, karaoke and Sunday brunch, to keep the whole family occupied, as well as pool and spa facilities.
For a culinary treat, try the iconic open air Bomras restaurant. Heavily influenced by cuisine from Burma, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand, the menu boasts dishes such as lime and chilli red snapper or seared beef with basil and coriander.
Afterwards, try the Tease Bar – with dark wood and cream walls, views of the beach and a cocktail while enjoying the cool sea breezes.
There’s plenty to do in Goa once you’ve had your fill of the beach – there are historic forts to explore, a handful of churches earmarked as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, temples and Goa State Museum.
The best time to book a private jet charter to India is from October to March to enjoy the cooler temperatures and avoid the torrential rains of the monsoon season.
With stunning scenery, glorious food and welcoming locals, you will have an unforgettable trip – whichever part of India you visit.
