Honeymoon Suites in India
1) Mayfair Spa Resort & Casino: Love amidst the Himalayan forests
Mayfair’s belief of “Stay with us, Stay with Nature” is the first striking feature that a new couple looks for during their honeymoon. Located in the laps of the Himalayan forest, Mayfair Spa Resort in Gangtok, Sikkim has majestic villas to cosy cottages.

The entrance to the Mayfair Spa is no doubt beautiful, but what is more alluring is the walk uphill surrounded by the lush greenery with sensuous lights and beautifully crafted statues.
Being the only casino hotel on land in India, adventurous couples can hop in for a game. Or for a bit of pampering, enjoy a luxurious and relaxing couple spa.
