As India experts, Sodha Travel understands the challenges of social distancing in a country topping 1.3 billion people. As travel enthusiasts, we also crave the continuation of exploring a foreign land. Intrepid travelers are now seeking more thoughtful ways to immerse and connect, pivoting from selfies to self-care. Hotel stays with shared spaces and buffet breakfasts are being replaced with long-term rentals and socially-distanced dining. There remains an urge to explore, but with increased safety and hygiene practices. Simply put, many travelers are no longer comfortable in a traditional touring environment.
Introducing Signature Stays, Sodha Travel’s portfolio of private home rentals across India. By reserving one exclusive property for the entire trip, travelers can limit their exposure to others. All Signature Stays include a spacious, sanitized vehicle with a private driver; a curated itinerary with a private guide; and a custom menu prepared by a private chef.
From seaside to cityscapes, Signature Stays are exclusive yet accessible, allowing for easy and exciting day tours to nearby attractions. Less time on the road means more time together, exploring and discovering a new destination. Additionally, our team prioritizes safe practices as outlined by the World Travel and Tourism Council.
All Signature Stays are a minimum of seven nights and include:
Private airport transfers
Daily private transport with sanitized vehicle
Exciting tour options with a private guide
A private chef and personalized menu
A luxury 2-bedroom bungalow by the Arabian Sea
