Of course, picking out a destination is a tough call, especially if you want your Father's Day gift this year to be truly out of the box experience.

The best gift for every type of dad is surely a holiday that offers unique experiences to transport him to another world where he can unwind, be pampered and just luxuriate every one of his senses. Great views, good food, therapeutic sounds and sights with hospitality to woo a king. If you can join your dad for some precious bonding.  What could beat that? Take a look at these specially curated experiences that we are sure daddy will never forget.

Take your pick from this list of destinations – sea side resort, regal luxury break, spiritual sojourn, cultural carnival, city oasis,  safari adventure, or a hilly wellness getaway-  there is one that is perfect for your father! 

 

BRUNTON BOATYARD

Every room and yes, even their ensuite bathrooms have a stunning sea view or a quaint pier and Fort Kochi view. Watching the world go by as ships and fishing boats or gambolling dolphins waft over the waves from your bathroom is surely not an everyday experience. Or soak in stunning sunsets over the palm-fringed shores of Vypin Island close by and hear the cry of cormorants and gulls call out to you. A world by the sea experience that no man would like to miss.

Chittoor Kottaram is the abode of an erstwhile king, where luxury is the norm. Resting on the banks of the quaint backwaters of Kerala, Chittoor Kottaram has stood witness to over two centuries of history. The single-key mansion is the epitome of privacy and a bespoke staycation. The entire entourage caters to a single occupant or a family at a time so that your father can be the reigning monarch.
