What If I told you, that just 30 minutes away from the concrete jungle of Gurgaon is a sprawling golf course and a resort nestled among the Aravalis? Difficult to imagine right! Lemon Tree Tarudhan Valley is this and much more.
About the resort, Lemon Tree Tarudhan Valley
As we exited the busy Manesar road, the landscape changed dramatically in a matter of ten minutes. Instead of the dusty roads of Gurgaon, we were greeted with yellow, dancing mustard fields along with calls of peacocks! We never could imagine that such a landscape exists only 3o minutes from the main city of Gurugram.
As we entered the huge property of Lemon tree on our left hand side we saw a beautiful golf course and on the right were their rooms.
The golf course is spread around 72 acres and it envelopes a Standard 9 Hole Golf Course designed by Graham Cooke, one of the most respected golf course architects in North America and Canada’s top legendary amateur player; making it a perfect haven for golf enthusiasts from the world over.
We were lucky enough to learn and play golf in this beautiful golf course too, thanks to the wonderful staff who took personal care of each of our requests.
The Stay and the pet-friendly rooms
We stayed in their hugeee Studio Rooms which are pet friendly! Yes, Lemon Tree Tarudhan Valley is one of the few hotel chains which are pet friendly as well. Their pet friendly rooms are alongside their Pet Play Area too! They have everything you would need for a dog to stay: a comfy blanket, dog treats, a bed for the dog. They make sure your pooch is as comfortable as you are in the room.
The studio rooms have a huge bed, a cosy living area with a sofa and a dining table and they even have a kitchen where you can cook anything you want for yourself and even for your pooch! ( if you are following us on Instagram, you must have seen the room tour. Instagram.com/thevagabondstories)
Since the resort is huge your pet can really enjoy and run around the entire property. Even in the dining area they have a separate area where you and your furry friend can eat together.
It’s one of the best resorts I have seen which really have some great amenities for your pets.

We enjoyed a lovely day out exploring the villages around the hotel on a tractor! They organise these trips as well, so you can always ask them to arrange these trips for you. The staff was kind enough to personally escort us and they even took us to a strawberry farm.
In the afternoon, we requested the staff to arrange a picnic for us at the gold course and man, it was the best picnic basket I have ever had! Paneer tikka rolls, Green Thai Curry, Biryani, Salad, Raita, strawberries and cake, Gajar ka halwa – this was ALL there in our basket! Coupled with a splendid view of the golf course, the warm sun on our backs; there was nothing we could want more!
