The roots of our DMC are deep in the hospitality ethos with 25 years of running a fine boutique 300 year old palace hotel in Rajasthan, INDIA


A huge part of what makes India such a great destination to travel to, is its people, their ways and dare we say their whims and fancies too. Such is their diversity that their varied ethnicity is a surprise to themselves let alone others


India is where hospitality is at it’s best with ancient palaces converted into fine luxury hotels. Be it the global chain of hotels like the TAJ or the boutique hotels and palaces owned by the royal families of India. India is EXOTIC and gives much scope for pleasure


India is home to some of the most fantastic monuments, natural sites, beaches, forts and palaces and dense forests
