India has emerged as an exciting luxury destination for a gay holiday. This extraordinarily diverse country tempts with a winning blend of historic sites, outdoor adventures, beach resort indulgence, and world-class amenities, from dining to wellness. Between exploring ancient ruins, cruising tropical backwaters, and encountering rare wildlife, there are limitless possibilities during a luxury gay holiday in India.
Although same-sex marriage is not legal yet, the progressiveness of India's social climate and laws have been improving in recent years. In 2018, the country voted to decriminalise homosexual sex, and since then, surveys have shown that the acceptance of homosexuals in India has steadily grown. Major cities like Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore have vibrant gay scenes and Pride celebrations each year, ideal for seeking out on a gay holiday.
Of course, India also boasts some of the planet's most spectacular scenery, cultures, and cities. In Northern India, you can discover the majesty of the Taj Mahal in Agra and the colourful markets of Rajasthan during private tours tailored for you. In Kerala, you can visit palm-lined beaches and leafy tea plantations. India makes accessing both bucket-list sites and remote tropical serenity easy.
The dining scenes in cities like Mumbai excel at creative Indian fusion cuisine, blending regional ingredients and techniques with global flair. Sample innovative takes on street food in upscale restaurants, or try out the real thing on vibrant thoroughfares. At night, toast to your India gay holiday over inventive cocktails incorporating local spices and flavours, as India's nightlife emerges in exciting new directions.
With its rich culture, striking scenery, and world-class yet laid-back luxury, India offers an ideal setting for an extraordinary gay holiday. Whether you desire pampering spas, jungle safaris, beach relaxation, or exploring ancient sites, you'll find welcoming arms across this incredibly diverse nation.
