India with Aman – A sophisticated journey for the senses

10 days from £4,987 per person

India is a divine destination for an Aman journey. The rich culture you'll discover here is a delightful sensory whirlwind; in contrast, the hotels on this trip are all soothing havens of understated style and service.

Get in the 'Aman-state-of-mind' at the Lodhi, which used to be the Aman New Delhi and has retained a sleek and low-key vibe. Explore the city accompanied by the best guides; absorb the buzz of Old Delhi – a maze of narrow lanes and bazaars full of vibrant silks, aromatic spices and chattering vendors – and visit the Red Fort, the Jama Masjid and Chandni Chowk. By contrast, discover the formal splendour of Lutyen's New Delhi with its wide boulevards, formal parks, magnificent Parliament Building, Rashtrapati Bhawan and India Gate.

Next, head for Ranthambore National Park, the ex-hunting ground of the Maharaja of Jaipur. Aman-i-Khas is the most luxurious and stylish safari lodge in Asia, with a huge centrepiece fire pit which guests gather around at night for cocktails. Aman-i-Khas attracts an extremely chic crowd, but if you don't want to socialise, there is an expanse of space and tents are spread very far apart. Practice yoga by the lake, swim in the pool, enjoy the library or have a massage at the spa tent, which is magnificent. But the real reason you come to Ranthambore is to go on safari… you will have expert wildlife guides and private jeeps, not to mention a chilled glass of bubbles awaiting you when you return from tiger spotting!

We can't think of anywhere more perfect to end your trip than Amanbagh, a little-known rural gem and perhaps our favourite hotel in the world. Amanbagh is an ideal spot whether you're here with your family or as a couple; there are some wonderful local excursions, or if you prefer to do nothing, the hotel is a gorgeous place to relax. Secluded in a picturesque valley in Rajasthan's Aravalli Mountains, it is an oasis of crisp green lawns, towering palm trees and handsome Mughal architecture – chhatris, shaded courtyards and jail screens – accented with minimalist Aman decor.

Dine on an expansive rooftop open to the stars, dive into your private green marble pool, ride the resort's resident camel, salute the sun with a sunrise yoga session at an abandoned temple or venture into the local village for a 'cow dust tour' at dusk. You'll see herders accompanying their cattle to the fields and young children frolicking in the pools and running with sticks and hoops along the mud beaten paths. This is India at its most beautiful and romantic. 

This tour is purely a suggested itinerary: it can be booked as it is, or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own ideal tailor-made holidayIf you'd like to see similar trips, take a look at our Ultimate Luxury and Honeymoon collections as well as our favourite Spa & Wellness and Wildlife itineraries.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
