Children are adorable with their curious questions, laughter and energy. However, every once in a while, adults need some time off from them and even parents will agree to this. However, with most hotels and restaurants being children-friendly and family vacations being the norm, couples or adults seldom find spots where they do not spot kids running around. Heck, you can even find families out with their tiny tots in resto-bars. But there are a handful of hotels in India that do not allow children below a certain age for specific reasons, giving adults the much-needed freedom to be themselves. Whether you have children or not, if you are looking for a quiet vacation or a place to spend some quality time with your partner without hearing the shrill voices of kids, these are the hotels you should check into. There are only three of them in India currently but you will get the much-needed respite. ALSO SEE Hotels in India that allow unmarried couples

Wildflower Hall, Shimla
Just 20 km away from the bustling touristy spot destination of Shimla lies a posh Oberoi property call Wildflower Hall. It is situated in Mashobra which is on the outskirts of Shimla and offers a world of a difference that is serene, beautiful and tranquil. The best part, the hotel restricts the entry of children below the age of 10. Though it may not outright say it, the message is pretty clear as it is situated at a height of over 8,000 ft with a steep descent that is unsafe for children as there are several open spaces within the property. Parents who do insist on bringing their kids have to make sure they monitor them all the time. There aren’t any activities for the kids nor are there any play areas or extra cots, etc for them which is usually the norm in any five-star property. The resort offers splendid views of the Himalayas and has all the amenities you can expect from a luxury resort like an infinity pool, a spa and signature Oberoi experiences like rafting, yoga, walks, cycling and more. There is also a restaurant and bar in the property making it a one-stop place for couples to vacation in. ALSO SEE 5 resorts in India with private pools
