The Hidden Beaches of the Andaman Islands

12 days from £3,650 per person

This itinerary features in our Top 10 Romantic Holidays.

A mere hop, skip and a jump away – or two plane journeys, a boat ride and a short car drive away – the Andaman Islands are India’s hidden gem and are renowned for their pristine nature and stunning beaches.

These far flung islands are scattered in the cerulean warm waters of the Indian Ocean, and Havelock Island is home to the sexiest hotel in the area, Jalakara. This 12-day itinerary will have you relaxing at the islands two very different hotels, as you choose to while away your days on the beach or for the more adventurous, superb diving and snorkelling is on offer. Jalakara is available until May and from October, with a guaranteed burst of sunshine.

This luxury holiday is purely a suggested itinerary; it can be booked as it is, or used as a starting point for creating your perfect tailor-made tour of the Andaman Islands. If you would like to see similar trips, take a look at our collection of Honeymoons, as well as our Ultimate Luxury, Beach, Fly & Flop and Scuba Diving itineraries.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

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
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
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
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
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
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
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, 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
