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!

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had.

An absolutely first-class service all round!

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim.
