Lakshmi Kutir
Allahabad

The largest ever gathering of humanity in a single place in all of history, Maha Kumbh Mela really is an incredible sight to behold. It is a spiritual event of epic proportions which takes place every 12 years in the city of Allahabad in Northern India. Lakshmi Kutir is the perfect launchpad to access this awe-inspiring event.

This luxury tented camp allows you to connect with the spiritual and holistic aspects of the Maha Kumbh. Secured around the clock by trained security personnel, the camp is spectacularly located at the highest point of the Maha Kumbh, directly in line with the Sangamor main bathing area overlooking the Akharas of various Sadhus and religious personages.

The camp's host is a spiritual Sadhak and a Kumbh specialist, and there is a specialist Ayurveda Acharya also on hand. The Ayurveda spa provides guests with therapies, massages, yoga and treatments of ancient Indian methods. To add to this, an astrologer also stays at the luxury camp and is happy to assist guests with a telescope on a special viewing terrace.

There will be exclusive excursions into the very heart and soul of the Maha Kumbh, providing guests with opportunities for photography and one-on-one interactions with sadhus and seers, as well as to just immerse themselves in a sea of fervent devotees and soak up the mystical and marvellous energy and power of faith.

Accommodation at Lakshmi Kutir comprises three categories of tents: Super Luxury, Luxury and accommodation for long stay guests. All tents feature indulgent amenities, delicate decorations and all modern conveniences like heating, running hot and cold water and Western toilets are included, too. There is a unique dining tent which features a live kitchen serving exquisite meals, which are all prepared in keeping with the ancient Indian philosophy of Satvik food. Another huge plus of staying here is the fabulous team of English-speaking staff that are always be on hand to help whenever needed.

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
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
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
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
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
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!
