Holidays to India by Cox & Kings

India makes a strong claim to be the most exciting and rewarding travel destination in the world. From the exhilarating pace of life in its colourful and vibrant cities to its exquisite temples and superb scenery, few visitors ever leave disappointed.

History and culture, iconic sights, delectable food and changing landscapes; from the Himalaya to crumbling desert forts, and from national parks towards the lush south – luxury holidays to India invariably feel like a visit to more than one country.

There are not many destinations where you can stay in a former palace and receive first-class service without breaking the bank, yet India offers a superb range of luxurious and characterful hotels at excellent value for money.

Finally, with English as an official language making it easy to interact with the locals, it is no surprise that so many travellers return again and again – whether it’s to take an epic train journey, search for tigers in one of its national parks, live like royalty or simply to admire the innumerable wonders of India. 

For most, the biggest problem is where to start.
