THE MAGIC OF INDIA AND THE ANDAMAN ISLANDS
During this unique incentive trip, you and your guests will discover all the fascinating facets of India: you fly a thousand kilometres from the bright hustle and bustle of Kolkata (Calcutta) – the cultural and architectural capital – to the virgin beaches of the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal.
Your Indian adventure starts in opulent luxury: after a refreshing night’s sleep in a four-poster bed in the Victorian colonial Grand Oberoi Hotel in Calcutta, you travel, accompanied by mystical singing, to the temple of Belur Math. Lunch is a fabulous opportunity for you to discover all the aromas of regional Bengali cuisine. In the afternoon, you and your clients have the opportunity of getting to know this fascinating metropolis just like the colourful local people would do. You ride in an old yellow Ambassador taxi to the book stalls of College Street, from which you take a tram to Maidan Park and the colonial grandeur of the Victoria Memorial.
The following day, you exchange the busy street life of Calcutta for silvery-white sands and swaying palm trees. After a flight barely lasting two hours, you are ensconced in the luxury eco-lodges of the Barefoot Resort on Havelock Island in the breathtakingly beautiful Andaman Islands. You will fall into a heavenly sleep here in the middle of a tropical green garden with views looking out over one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
After an afternoon spent doing nothing more than resting, you have two whole days to relax, during which you can go on a jungle trek, go diving or snorkelling in the azure blue lagoons or swim in the sea with Rajan, our domesticated swimming elephant. After a visit to the local market, you travel to the Fortune Bay Resort in Port Blair, the capital of the Andaman archipelago. It is here that you will capture your final image of the surreal and beautiful views, awash in turquoise and emerald green, before you leave for Brussels via Calcutta.
