Infatuated in India: The Next Frontier for Honeymooners

Lovebirds looking for the next exotic frontier? We say India is the next hot spot for a heated honeymoon.

Oberoi Hotels & Resorts offers a variety of romantic destination resorts at which cooing couples can ring in their first few days after tying the knot.

The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra is the quintessential spot for honeymooners, seeing as it is so close to the Taj Mahal, which was built for the spouse of Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. The resort itself oozes serenity within the city of Agra and has all the swank touches important to lovers on a getaway (think illuminated pools, fountains and frescoes).

Head to the Rajasthani countryside and check into The Oberoi Rajvilas, Jaipur. Here couples can experience an ancient blessing ceremony at the 280-year-old Shiva temple. We love that the temple sits on a small island surrounded by water lilies. Nice touch: Following the ceremony, couples can dine under the stars poolside as live Indian music plays.

If it's lakeside palaces you are after, Udaipur fits the bill. The estates of The Oberoi Udaivilas, Udaipur evoke a royal feel and is set with reflecting pools and fountains overlooking Lake Pichola.

Thrill-seeking couples will find solace in The Oberoi Vanyavilas, Ranthambhore, which is on the edge of the Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve. Here trained guides lead starry-eyed couples through the National Park for some wildlife spotting. The jungle resort is complete with walled gardens and over a thousand fruit trees.

Get back to nature at Wildflower Hall, Shimla, a Himalayan retreat set in a location teeming with cedar forests and other flora and fauna. Guests can relax under the stars in the outdoor heated whirlpool and then cozy up beside fire places and oriental rugs.
