Work from home has changed the way the world functions, to put it simply. People have stayed home for nearly two years, and with the pandemic slowing down, many are looking for options to chill out with family and friends. With people taking to ‘revenge tourism,’ various resorts, farm stays, resorts with tents, jungle retreats around the city have been bustling with activity.
The holiday options cost anything between Rs 2000 and Rs 6000 per night. Some holiday options also include treks and farm walks. Grass walks is one such getaway that is 70 km away from Hyderabad. The place gives stunning views of the surrounding Vikarabad jungle. However, in keeping with the requirements of people post-COVID, owner Syed Mohammed Najmuddin shares that he quickly set up working desks and chairs in all rooms and tents. Another resort, Trance in Moinabad, has been keeping busy with wedding events for the past few months. They say sanitization and cleanliness are their top priority.
According to the owner of Gamaya, which provides experiential holidays, the children totally love their concept as they offer tractor rides, fishing, and a canal that is used to show how irrigation happens. Another popular spot happens to be The Getaway, an organic farm in Godamguda, where the guests can get to spend time under the star-lit sky without a building in view.
Meanwhile, various farm stays like Neeraja Farm Stay, Hornbill Farm Stay, Farmville Stay, and Grasswalks and Organo Nandi include treks and understanding farming practices.
