We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. And we travel to become young fools again—to slow time down, and fall in love once more. – Pico Iyer

The joy of visiting new places, meeting new people, and building new memories, along with all the attendant benefits on both mind and body, urge us to travel regardless of age and stage of our lives.

At Samarth, we bring these joys and benefits to our community of seniors who believe that travel is no longer about tight itineraries, endless queues, and adrenaline rushes. We have taken a more mindful approach to travel: one that allows you to experience, savour, explore, connect, or perhaps just relax at the pace that works best for you, and responds to your requirements with customised plans. You even have the option of a dedicated, resourceful travelling companion to take charge and ensure the all-round attention that you have come to expect from Samarth.

Samarth has partnered with Breakaway, which has created unique experiences for travellers over the last 12 years, to design customised trips for seniors based on their needs and interests. These experiences have been compiled to give you a taste of the food, culture, and heritage of those destinations that would help you look deep into the eyes of India’s people and, thus, into her very soul.

Travel, designed for seniors.

Our experiences are bespoke all the way.
Our Travel Advisors will co-design a plan just for you. You can decide your travel dates, duration, itinerary, stay options, mode of travel and meals. Experiences are curated for your group size: whether you are travelling by yourself, with your partner, or in groups of up to 8. You can also travel with a group of like-minded seniors from the Samarth Community.
  • We offer multiple stay options that suit a range of budgets. Each of these options has been personally vetted by our team for cleanliness, comfort, convenience, access, and safety.
  • Itineraries are thoughtfully designed to account for your fitness level and mobility and to suit your pace.
  • 24/7 support, local assistance, and emergency medical support are available during your vacation.
  • Experiences are curated for your group size: whether you are travelling by yourself, with your partner, or in groups of up to 8 like-minded seniors from the Samarth community.
We select the best accommodation for your needs.
We’ve chosen the perfect places for you to stay to experience the local culture and cuisine of these destinations. Choose from lovingly restored and maintained guest houses, hotels, and villas.
  • Stay in a contemporary home, a renovated traditional bungalow, or even a restored heritage home, and get first-hand experience of how different communities live.
  • You can also stay in fully-staffed villas for a uniquely intimate and personal experience. We ensure easy access to medical care, senior-friendly spaces, and resident staff on call.
We design itineraries that cater to all your requirements.
Our trips place your experiences at the centre every step of the way.
  • We plan programmes and outings to avoid crowds as much as possible. We make reservations in advance as far as we can.
  • We can coordinate club evenings (if you have memberships with reciprocal access) and social outings and events.
  • We can find unique cultural events and performances in the neighbourhood for you to enjoy on holiday.
The experience of food is often the experience of togetherness.
We will curate meals that allow you to explore the diversity of cuisines on your travels. Quality meals are arranged to suit your dining preferences (dietary requirements, allergies, ambience, and more).
Our trips adhere to the highest standards of safety and care.
Our format of bespoke, attentive curation is attuned to keeping you more comfortable and safe.
  • A Samarth Care Counsellor will travel with you and stay at the same hotel so as to always be available.
  • By design, privately curated tours enhance your social space (while improving your quality of interaction), and we do our part to enhance your experience by only working with the best local partners, those who have safety protocols in place.
  • We will have emergency assistance available during your travel at all locations.

Explore these destinations

Each destination offers new experiences and a chance to make memories that will stay with you forever. Traverse breathtaking mountains and valleys, feel the sand beneath your feet on secluded beaches, explore your history and heritage at ancient palaces and forts, revel among the golden flowers of mustard fields…the possibilities are endless!

If there is a place you want to see that is not here, please ask, and we will try to make it happen. Whether for a large group or a small set, our approach is centred around your needs. Conversations with you and our recommendations will help us arrive at an itinerary that reflects your personality. Every place and person you will engage with on your Breakaway will be someone we’ve vetted and only then suggested.
