Weekends are just a drive away if you are up to facing the challenge. The Shri Radha Brij Vasundhara Resort & Spa at Mathura can tempt you for that three hour drive from the capital city of Delhi if you are feeling spiritual and in the mood to taste the delicious lassis and jalebis. These delicacies can be found in the vivacious and jostling lanes and bylanes of Mathura and Vrindavan. Jalebis and milk form part of staple breakfast here. This can be a prelude to the pious visit of the Govardhan where the religious offer prayers by taking a round of the Govardhan Parvat (mountain) especially if you want to take the pious Govardhan Parikrama (round).


The resort is located at the feet of the sacred Govardhan Parvat and one of the only luxury resorts that come equipped with beautiful cottages spread across tastefully landscaped green space. It has both permanent and visiting residents. It’s common to see the guests chanting to Lord Krishna in the Krishna Temple in the resort. It is popular in the area for hosting of weddings in the large adjacent space. Beautiful décor and arrangements can be made with world famous Indian cuisine served if you are in the mood to get married in the land of the holy, where Krishna and Radha’s love knew no bounds. It makes a particularly beautiful place for the family elders as the surrounding areas of the resort are full with stories of Radha and Krishna and several kunds that come with rich spiritual heritage and history. The place resounds with beautiful bhajans and chants to lord Krishna as you step out of the resort.


Brindavan and Mathura are just a half an hour’s drive from here while the cuisine of Braj is for you to savour in the many restaurants that are found here. Try the spicy curries served with hot poories that is also a part of everyone’s favourite breakfast here.

The resort itself serves delicious vegetarian food which is freshly cooked at the restaurant; a request too can be made for the signature dish if you are in the mood to taste something specific to the region.For a restful day, a visit to the petite and beautiful Anubhuti Spa can relax your tired feet and rejuvinate you body here. Equipped with trained therapists who will work wonders to find the right pressure points, the menu here is decently filled with therapies like the Swedish, aromatherapy, Ayurveda and their signature massages with scrubs and facials.
