Remote Lands arranged for us to renew our marriage vows in an authentic and moving ceremony at a local Bhutanese farmhouse outside Paro.
Satpura National Park
Named for the Satpura Hills, a rugged mountain range of gorges, plunging valleys, jagged sandstone, and thickly wooded plains, Satpura National Park is home to a number of endangered and threatened species. Most of the forests consist of tough hardwoods such as teak and ebony, as well as a number of herbs, wildflowers, and grasses; within these forests also dwell Bengal tigers, sambar deer, the rare chital deer, gaur, and Indian leopards.

Our co-founder & CEO Catherine Heald was moved by her Hindu wedding vow renewal in Kerala. She also loved staying with a Maharajah at his palace in Darjeeling.
Learn about how the park is working to maintain and reinvigorate its animal populations, beginning with the reintroduction of the rare barasingha, or Indian swamp deer; in addition to the barasingha, twenty Bengal Tigers were also moved to Satpura.
Drive through the park for a closer look at its myriad flora and fauna. Catch a glimpse of the Bengal Tiger in its natural habitat, an Indian leopard on the prowl, or a herd of gaur, or Indian bison, grazing the pastures.

Each cottage features large, expansive windows, climate control, and open-air verandahs and patios with views of the hills, forest, or nallah, depending on the location. The Reni Paniâ€™s dining options include the Ghol Ghar, a twenty-seat dining room set by a fireplace, an open-air, Indian barbecue, and, in the winter months, poolside dining. Amenities include a full-service spa, a lounge, and a library.
