In surfing, glassy describes perfect conditions; when there’s no wind or chop, and instead the surface of the water—waves and all—is smooth as glass. It’s easy, it’s effortless, it’s ideal.

This white-washed, jasmine-scented guesthouse is basically our dream home. Meals are sourced from the owner’s organic farm—and can be custom-tailored to your dietary restrictions. There’s a small spa (check to confirm it’s open during your visit), and a back garden area where you can schedule a private yoga session.

Have your driver drop you off at the front of this historic fort and then make the trek up to the zig-zagging hill to reach the entrance—the walk alone could be your day’s workout (especially since it includes dodging elephants).

The blue-and-white decor is what Instagram dreams are made of, but stick around for more than just a photo op at this jewel box spot on the grounds of the historic Narain Niwas Palace Hotel. Although the menu skews Italian (read: pasta), the starters are mostly veg-heavy and there’s both a juice and an Ayurvedic tea section. Pro tip: Bring bug spray, even if you’re planning on sitting inside.

The frothy sister to moody Bar Palladio, this pistachio and peach-hued gem is the perfect lunch spot. Think mezze plates, veggie tagines, and a list of sides that will make you salivate. (Hi, roasted cumin carrots.)

If you can actually wake up in time for 6 a.m. class, head to the northern tip of the park (just below the planetarium, by the statues) for free yoga classes Monday through Saturday. Otherwise, it’s the best spot in Jaipur to go for a run.

For a truly transformational experience, sign up for a 10-day silent retreat at one of the largest vipassana centers in India. Although it will hardly be a vacation (wake up is at 4:30 a.m. and you log about 10 hours of seated meditation), the course is 100% donation-based.

This 100-year-old “heritage hotel” is a looker—but more importantly, guests have all-day access to the pool, which comes in handy when it’s too hot to do anything but float around and gaze at peacocks. (Non-guests can pay a fee to visit, but hours are limited.)

While it’s not your traditional workout, we highly rec taking a tour with Vineet because a) walking is a form of exercise, and b) he’s super informative and will show you a much truer side of Jaipur’s Pink City than any guidebook could. (And if you ask nicely, he’ll show you the go-to Ayurvedic doctor in Jaipur, who has his own herb-filled stall.)

Just to the right of the Hawa Mahal you’ll find Chand and his circa-1860 Carl Zeiss camera (a gift to his grandfather from the Maharaja of Jaipur, NBD) set up on the sidewalk. A full 60 seconds of stillness—which is seemingly impossible to imagine in this bustling metropolis—and then a few more minutes of patience and you’ll get this perfect souvenir: a black and white portrait, processed in front of you. Consider it a reflection of you in an urban-meditative state.
