Hmm, the sun NEVER feels so good, as it does now. Its warmth is pleasant, as nature bids farewell to monochrome and enters the season of countless hues.
Goodbye winter, welcome spring.
Spring does come with its dose of ‘spring fever.’ And nothing welcomes this season with more feverish celebrations than the Indian Festival of Colours- Holi! For those uninitiated, everyone and everything around turns into countless hues of the rainbow! From Rangpanchami in Maharashtra to Lathimaar Holi in Uttar Pradesh, the festival itself takes on different tints is the various states of the country.
Pssst, between you and me, there’s no other festival that people look forward to with such zeal! Holi is THE official, universal excuse to play with colours and splash water at each other, and well, generally get messy. Believe it, this is one time it is normal for you to spoil your clothes, colour your hair, or have paint your face! 😉
Let the shades of spring sweep you away and let loose the child within! March 2015, from 5th to 8th, celebrate in our hospitable environment. As India explodes in a kaleidoscope of colours, make the most of our stay packages at The Lalit properties.

How could we forget Goa? One of India’s most sought after destinations, Goa has a Bacchanalian personality. Carefree and carnival-esque has always been associated with this seaside paradise. However, Holi brings out another side of Goa– colour, carnival and communities come together to be celebrated as Shigmotsav.
